Fans of reality TV, watch for the drama. The show sputters along without it With the exception of last season’s amazing cast, the Celebrity Apprentice has been sputtering along for the last few years , and while the boardroom is always dramatic, its not enough.
This year the Trumpster, hoping lighting would strike twice imported three reality stars, Aubrey, Victoria Gotti and Teresa. Victoria Gotti immediately registered on the drama meter, people hated her, but she tripped over her ugly weave and was outta there before you could say Pantene.
Teresa, the tough table turning I will beat your ass girl from Patterson New Jersey, transformed into Doris Day, no slaps, no screaming,” yes Mr Trump” and not registering on the drama meter. Not a single table was harmed this season.
He did get drama in the form of Aubrey the beautiful, very smart and very narcissistic O’ Day. Who had one true friend, Lisa Lampenelli, both ladies rate 10 on the drama scale for different reasons. James Lipton said Lisa was passionate, and even though she could slice and dice with her tounge (she has the second fastest mind in comedy after Joan Rivers)she’s likable. On the other end of the scale, Aubrey isn’t, smart she is, beautiful she is, truthful……well she has HER own versions of the truth.
On the men’s side, you didn’t have a Pierce Morgan, Meatloaf, or Gary Busey. Everyone was likable, only Lou( I am a star Dammit) Ferrigno provided a bit of drama (a 5 on the drama meter). The breakout this year is Clay Aiken, america loves Mr Howdy Doody however, what america didn’t know was Clay wasn’t a mild mannered pushover… He’s smart, and honest and aggressive.
Donald fired the young witch Aubrey O Day (Jumping up and down) and left us with ying and yang. Two nice guys for the final.
The task was to direct, produce and star in a variety show to raise money for their charities. They also had to sell tickets to the event and create a PSA.
The Trumpster brought back “Adam Carolla”, Debbie Gibson,Teresa Giudice, Penn Jillette” Lisa Lampanelli, “Aubrey O’Day”Dee Snyder and “Paul Teutul, Sr.”
Arsenio choose, Adam, Teresa,Lisa and Paul. Clay took, Debbie,Penn, Dee and was force to take the last person standing Aubrey who smiled but you could read she couldn’t believe someone as brillent as she,wasn’t snapped up first, instead of being the last can of peas on the clearance shelf.
Both men want to win,, but Clay seems to want it more he is determined not to be runner up, AGAIN. Arsenio typically cool was cool, cooler still without the red witch. Were seeing a very aggressive Clay…different Clay, who really wants this… He is determine not to be second again.
The problem is, do I care who wins?
Aubrey is being Aubrey, there is no lava flowing from Mount Lampanelli, and Debbie can’t seem to shake out a song . Where’s da drama? The rest of the cast could be in a Coke commercial….Teaching the world to sing.
Which leads me to say,should there be another season of the Celebrity Apprentice ?
