So every presidential election for the last decade or so, Donald Trump pretends like he is considering running for the presidency. I never really believe he is serious, because, he’s kind of busy running eleventy billion businesses and hosting Celebrity Apprentice. One of his other entertainment enterprises is the Miss USA and Miss Universe Franchise. Some reports indicate that this enterprise is jointly owned by Trump and NBC. I don’t think that exactly accurate. I believe Trump owns Miss Universe and partnered with NBC for the TV shows.
Which brings us to this year when Trump is actually honest to God running for president. This meant that Celebrity Apprentice would be on hold until he dropped out. I can live with that. But then, Trump said about illegal immigrants ” they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” Well, this caused the Hispanic population’s head to explode. God forbid we mention that the illegal immigrants are committing crimes simply by entering the country illegally, draining our public school systems, burdening our jails, and committing violent crimes. If you live in the south, anywhere, this is no secret. Apparently, it is not nice to mention that criminals commit crimes. Sure Trump’s delivery sucks, but nothing will win the votes of Texans and Arizona voters like promising to seal the southern border with a big ole wall.
So then Univison who airs the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant in Spanish says they are not going to air it anymore because Trump is a big ole windbag who hates Mexicans. So now all the people who work on the Spanish version of the show are out of a job, and all the countries with Spanish-speaking representatives in the pageant can’t watch and Univision (and Trump) lose money. Who cares the least about this? Trump. Continue reading
Kenya weighed in today with her Bravo Blog where she discusses the dramatic(ally stages) exit of Apollo and Phaedra (and picks a side!). She also talks about #Phonegate and how Mr. Trump believes her when she claims to have nothing to do with the phone’s disappearance or the tweet.
She also talks ever so briefly about her auditions for Life Twirls On. Mostly about Cynthia saying, ” Cynthia was amazing! As an actor you have to be willing to take chances, make and commit to strong choices. This project is important to me, because it’s not only being completely financed by my company, but it is what I enjoy doing the most in my professional career. I love creating projects and producing. The great thing about Cynthia’s audition is that she came to play. I love it when an actor goes for broke and that she did!”

I enjoyed Celebrity Apprentice for the most part this season, but I’m ready for the finale because I just have to many things to watch on Monday nights right now. Speaking of scheduling issues, I will be recapping Vanderpump Rules tomorrow instead of tonight. After this show, I’m going to curl up on the coach and listen to the rain (maybe sleet?) and veg out for the night. Atlanta shut the city down due to potential snow. I’m not sure how it was supposed to snow since it’s been around 40 degrees almost all day, but in Atlanta, we don’t have weathermen anymore. We have SEVERE WEATHER TEAMS who scare us to death pretty much every week with tornados, and lightning and ice possibilities, etc. They actually now seriously recommend we all don helmets during tornado season. I’m not kidding! Anyway, I hope those of you with real snow issues are warm and safe! Let’s get on with the show!
Leeza and Geraldo are shown shooting their commercials. Leeza got really lucky with the Jonas kid. He’s running the camera crew like a finely oiled machine. Meanwhile, over on Team Geraldo, Lorenzo and Geraldo are still measuring their dicks.
Before a commercial break they do a teaser about #PhoneGate so maybe we will see some footage tonight! Continue reading
The first hour is a list of top fights and other crap from all the seasons. It’s filler. But I’m glad because I am not ready to start recapping. Kenya Moore had the fourth worst campaign of all time with the Hawaiian Buns photobomb with the baby with the bun fetish. Kenya also came in second in the boardroom backstabbing list. I suppose these are accomplishments.
Okay, it’s the second hour. Time to watch Vivica Fox get sent home. Wow, after firing the other team altogether, Trump still is not done firing people. He is going to fire one of the final three right now. Donald Trump asks Vivica why she should stay. She really has no reason. Leeza and Geraldo are the obvious choice. Even Vivica knows this. Vivica says Leeza is a better competitor she is. Vivica cries again. Vivica has done the hormonal cry every boardroom. Trump fires Vivica. She basically quit. I think we all saw the writing on the wall.
The Final Task: The gang goes to Universal Orlando Resort on Trump’s private jet. They are going to shoot a commercial selling vacation packages.
Leeza and Geraldo are old friends who love each other. Trump’s jet is a bit smaller than I expected. It’s lovely. But I don’t think it’s his main jet. Continue reading
Just received this interview with Brandi Glanville for Gossip Girl. I have some thoughts. Be sure to read the entire interview at Gossip Girl because I am just going to hit a few highlights. My comments will be in purple after the actual Q&A
Gossip Girl: Is there drama with your ex to clear up?
Brandi Glanville: The gossip is ongoing. We co-parent, we have two amazing little boys, and we get along. We have our issues. We have two different households, two different sets of rules, so we have to talk because of our kids. But what you’re seeing on Housewives right now was four months ago.
TT: It must be a struggle for Eddie and LeAnn to get along with someone who is constantly shitfaced on TV. Say what you will about Eddie and LeAnn but I don’t see either of them falling down drunk in the tabloids. Sure LeAnn has had some strange moments on stage…but not as bad as say Mariah Carey. Eddie has enough sense to keep the boys off of RHOBH despite the fact that Brandi wants to have them on to be like the other moms. Most of the RHOBH viewing audience is perplexed that Eddie has not sought full custody. Perhaps he is waiting for the rehab stint to bolster his case even further? Those poor boys must be going through hell at public school everyday. I bet if Eddie had full custody, LeAnn would spring for private (perhaps boarding, but still…) school. Either would be preferable to the boys being exposed to Brandi’s behavior. Continue reading
Celebrity Apprentice #PhoneGate has not died down on the Internet. This site seems to have become the last safe (sort of) refuge for those who for whatever reasons do not think Kenya sent out the nasty tweets about menopause and Vivica Fox. Kenya is taking a pretty big drumming for #PhoneGate and I personally think it is because Kenya’s fans wish she would have just owned her evil. A simple “It is a very cutthroat game. I used everything I could to insure I made it to the end to play for my charity.” or “after days of very long hours and very little sleep I impulsively sent a tweet on Vivica’s phone to make light of her lack of usefulness on the Hawaiian King task. I certainly meant no offense to all the hormonal women in the world. And am sorry to all those I insulted.” Something. Anything that didn’t fly in the face of logic to the degree of ” I didn’t do anything” does. But she didn’t. That is why the comments here are imploding with debate.
So yesterday she was supposed to do a Q & A on the Celebrity Apprentice Facebook page and hoards of angry menopausal women descended with their claws out. It was not pretty. Today TMZ rolled another story on #PhoneGate including a video of Vivica Fox saying she knows beyond a doubt that Kenya stole her phone and providing her makeup artist as a “witness.” To be clear it didn’t appear he actually “witnessed” anything.
Also, Geraldo Rivera has blogged about the episode and he is convinced that Kenya is behind the shenanigans. Click through for his take on what went down. Continue reading
Kenya’s Winning Task
UPDATED WITH LINK TO BRANDI AND KENYA ON TODAY SHOW THIS MORNING. http://www.today.com/video/today/56922977#56922977
Before Kenya even comes out, Wendy has already stated the obvious about Kenya tweeting from Vivica’s phone. Although Kenya’s hardcore fans are in some sort of deep, DEEP, denial over the situation, it’s abundantly obvious that is what happened.
Kenya comes out looking stunning in orange. Wendy asked her if she had anything to do with the whole menopause thing. Kenya says “absolutely not.” Um, Kenya you brought up menopause in the boardroom and you tweeted about it after the fact. So that’s a lie. Kenya says she finds the whole thing quite ridiculous. Kenya says she was a strong player who did not need to resort to such ridiculousness to win. But she did. Kenya says the show is a meritocracy and people should win on their own merit and she brought a lot to the table.
Wendy says to Kenya, “You were a very smart player but I don’t believe a word you are saying.” Kenya just laughs and laughs. Kenya says that people are entitled to their opinions. If you want to believe it you do, and if you don’t you don’t. She says she was made a scapegoat on the show. She says they tried to fire her the week before and she fought her way out of it (Not quite, she played a dumb girl that managed to talk herself into getting fired. Now that was GENIUS.) Oh wait last week was when she got Kate Gosselin fired. That was pretty good boardroom maneuvering too. She just took it way too far this week with the phone incident and gave Vivica her rightful place in the final three. She fucked up. Continue reading
