Celebrity Apprentice Results: Niki Taylor Returns, Nene Leakes Explodes
Who was fired on Celebrity Apprentice last night (May 1, 2011)? The newest episode of Celebrity Apprentice started off with a bang worthy of a Fourth of July fireworks display. The teams met Mr. Trump and found out this week’s task would be to put on a live hair show featuring Farouk Hair System products. The men, via a game of rock, paper, scissors, chose Lil Jon as their project manager. When Donald Trump asked the women who their PM would be NeNe Leakes said, “Star thinks I should be the project manager so I will be.” She goes on to explain that Star suggested she be the PM right from the start that morning. Star shrugs it off and says that NeNe is the only one who hasn’t won any money for her charity so this was a chance for her to do that. That is when Mount NeNe finally erupted. She has been hinting at it all season and now it was on. She flat out screamed at Star, telling her she was manipulative and basically telling the world what a horrible human being she was. At one point when Star pointed out that educated people talk about their differences NeNe screamed at her that she better bring her “street game.” Star looked a little worried that NeNe might actually throw some punches. Trump and everyone else was floored. It was a verbal beat down of epic proportion that will go down in Celebrity Apprentice history.
As the teams split up and got started on the project LaToya Jackson came to see Donald Trump. She told him she thought she was unfairly thrown off the show and wanted to come back. Trump told her he would think about it and let her know within 24 hours.
The Celebrity Apprentice men came up with an idea, got to work and pulled off a killer move. John Rich called former women’s team member Niki Taylor and asked if she would be one of their hair models. She agreed. Lil John, Meatloaf and John Rich have zero drama between them and work well together.
On the women’s side the tension could be cut with a knife, but eventually they came up with a plan and NeNe Leakes delegated jobs to each person.
The following day when the women found out Niki Taylor was helping the men; they were not very happy and all during the project NeNe Leakes and Star Jones were busy explaining how they were making sure to blame each other if they lost.
When it came to the actual Celebrity Apprentice presentation the women’s started with a bang, featuring a dance number, thumping music and a good introduction, but NeNe wasn’t a very good host and it started to fall flat then ended on a low note. The men’s show started a little slow, but Lil Jon got the crowd going and soon had the place rocking. Their theme features women from all over the nation with Niki Taylor as the centerpiece cowgirl from Texas. It ended like a rock concert with everyone on their feet throwing beads and jumping around.
In the boardroom Donald Trump addressed the fight between Star Jones and NeNe Leakes. NeNe asserted that Star is manipulating everyone and that Hope Dworaczyk is her puppet. Hope denied it and says she doesn’t like drama and does the jobs she is tasked with by the project manager. Star basically said NeNe is just trying to cover her own ass.
Donald Trump then announced that the men were the winners. He then brought in LaToya Jackson back and announced that she will be joining the men’s team.
After the men leave, the battle of the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom began with Star and Nene throwing each other under the bus. Eventually, Trump has NeNe pick two people to bring with her to the boardroom and she selected Star and Hope. After more heated exchanges both Star and Nene agreed that if they could get over whatever animosity it is between them they would be a tough team to beat. Somehow in all of this drama Hope Dworaczyk got pulled under the bus. She is more laid back and tried to defend herself, but to no avail and she was fired.
As Celebrity Apprentice came to an end, NeNe Leakes told Star Jones she wanted to talk to her. Star said, “Not here,” pointing to the camera and took NeNe into a room. As the door closed we saw the two women shake hands. It seems a truce is on the horizon, but judging by the previews from next week, it won’t last long.
