Sunday night the seventh installment of Celebrity Apprentice began on NBC. It’s two hour debut featured several B list celebs including Lorenzo Lamas (who’s still pretty hot) and Geraldo Rivera (who’s still pretty annoying). I’m pretty sure the show attracted many Bravo TV viewers as Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore are also cast members. Could they’ve chosen two more volatile women?
As always it was girls vs. boys and both teams came up with pretty stupid names. The boys chose Vortex, the girls chose Infinity. We here at TBB, hope that with those monikers they’ll be selling condoms at some point. Keshia Knight Pulliam from The Cosby Show became the first project manager for the girls with Geraldo as PM for the boys. The first task took place at Pie Face, with the teams selling pot pies they made for charity. Each team had to come up with a sweet and a savory recipe. Geraldo was well Geraldo, if you get my drift, and Keshia was definitely a micro manager. Both teams completed the tasks and sold their gross looking pies while raising money for their charities. Gilbert Gottfried had a circus of freaks performing outside their location and the ladies posed for pictures. The Cake Boss Buddy Valastro went to both shops to select a winning pie. The winner received a substantial donation to their team cause. The gals took that one but in the end it didn’t make a dent because the boys more than doubled the girls final tally of solicited donations.
In the boardroom, the question awkwardly enough, came up about why Keshia hadn’t reached out to “Mr. Cosby” for a donation. Apparently she hasn’t spoken to him in five years and felt weird about it. I won’t spoil it for you but you can probably connect the dots on who got fired. Should be quite the interesting season with jerks like Geraldo and Kate (plus 8 plastic surgery procedures) Gosselin on. I don’t think one thing on Kate is real. She is pulled every which way possible and the weave is never ending.
Episode 2 aired on Monday. I’ll continue watching until I get bored. Did you catch it? What are your thoughts and predictions for Celebrity Apprentice so far?
