This morning my email box was full of two things. More questions for me in the open forum post (which turned into forum where y’all just pelted me with questions rather than the drunken happy hour I imagined…) and links to a story on the Daily Mail about Kenya’s outrageous behavior on Celebrity Apprentice!
Celebrity Apprentice is a show about wealthy A-list celebrities who come together to hold hands and sing Kumbaya and pray that the lord will help all the little people with charitable needs. Everyone loves everyone and they work together in peace and harmony for the children with no legs.
Oh wait, that’s not it at all Celebrity Apprenctice is show put together by Donald Trump where he collects together some D-list TV actors and puts them on teams with people he knows they will hate and forces them to work together for a celebrity cause. Notoriously the men do very well in the beginning as the women focus all of their time attacking each other. As the game progresses, The final player try to balance working with people they do not like to bring down the hopes and dreams of the other team.
After each task Donald calls them into the boardroom and rails on them for being such fucktards. He picks one of the players and screams YOU’RE FIRED! This happens to everyone except the final winner. It’s how the show works. Sometimes Donald even screams YOU’RE FIRED! at two people in the board room telling them the both suck. Some people like Nene Leakes do not get fired because they throw a hissyfit and quit the show because people are not bowing down to her. But most of the time, the process of leaving the show is “getting fired.”
Okay so let’s take a look at the Dail Mail Source. They are claiming to have four pieces of information from an unnamed Celebrity Apprentice source. Let’s look at them one by one.
Brandi and Kenya did not get along. Um duh. They did manage to work together on a shoe sales task which Kenya was the project manager on and won. They were not exactly clawing each other’s eyes out. TRUE.
Kenya and Keisha Knight Pulliam did not get along. Um, duh again. Keisha was project manager on the first challenge (selling pies). Keisha sucked as project manager and didn’t get along with anyone. She was voted off first, Keisha was there for less than a week. TRUE.
Kate Gosselin was Kenya’s Only Buddy during filming. LOL this is the funniest one. There are plenty of pictures of Kenya and her friends on the set laughing. She was especially close with Terrell Owns and Ian Fleming. So False.
Kenya stole Vivica Fox’s cell phone and tweeted on her account, ” ‘This menopause id (sic) killing me I cant think straight, Im acting a damn fool half the time 50 just isn’t sexy.’ Just after Kenya flew back from taping the RHOA reunion, she was right back in NYC working on a team with Vivica and Geraldo. They lost that challenge and I believe that is the one where Kenya went home. Talk about a bad week, the reunion, and getting the boot from the Apprentice all in one week. Is Kenya responsible for this tweet? Maybe. who knows. I do know that Kenya usually uses proper punctuation in her tweets, although sometimes apostrophes must be sacrificed to make it fit on twitter. Could be true. Could not be true.
Kenya and Vivica had a major blow up on the set. Vivica read Kenya for filth. This is most likely true. Especially in light of the cell phone accusation. There is almost always a major catfight when thing get down to the last few players. Probably True.
Kenya got fired and Donald Trump called her “the most evil woman I’ve ever met in my life!’ Seriously?Have you seen the women in Donald Trumps life? I doubt that sending a fake tweet from Vivica’s phone even makes the scale of evil in Donald’s world. Now she may have called out Brandi in the boardroom and been less than kind. And I know that Donald LOVES a dramatic firing. I have no doubt that Kenya’s departure was explosive, but I think the source at Daily Mail is being a bit hyperbolic here. So is it true? I doubt it, but it would be great TV if it does happen. Remember Omarosa got all sorts of offers after being evil on Celebrity Apprentice. Let’s hope the same holds true if this does happen. Duh, Kenya got fired, so did everyone else but the winner, fingers crossed her firing was half as dramatic as this story makes it appear.
I find it interesting that this source has waited until a month after the firing to run to the Daily Mail. You can read all of my Celebrity Apprentice Spoilers that I post during taping here.
