The Celebrity Apprentice “I Wish I had a Project Manager”

The Celebrity Apprentice

“I Wish I had a Project Manager” – S7/E4

by Stars99

group

Remember Last Week:

In the first task, the teams created a four-page fitness advertorial for Cosmopolitan magazine. Surprisingly, the men won the task – I think it’s only because Terrell took off his shirt and took some pictures. Project Manager (PM) Jamie made a mistake in bringing Kate and Kenya into the Boardroom with her and then stunningly confessed to Trump that she thought she had made a mistake. Oopsie! The snowboarder was way too chill and indecisive to even have a chance in this kind of competition. “Jamie, you’re fired.”

The second task was the 2nd fundraising task of the season and Geraldo smartly steps up immediately to be the PM when he knows he’s going up against Ian (Trump switched up the teams). I popped a gasket that Geraldo was allowed to be the PM on this 2nd fundraising task since it’s these kinds of tasks that generate crazy amounts of money for their charities (Geraldo’s charity had already received $278,734).

The task is to sell wedding dresses but they could really have sold bags of marshmallows since winning the task has very little to do with what you’re selling and everything to do with whom the celebrities have lined up to cough up the money. Each team raised almost $300,000 with only $2,500 separating the winning from the losing team. Before announcing the winner, Trump gave the PMs the option for each team to keep its own funds they raised and both PMs quickly agreed to it (Instead of one charity getting all $600,000). Geraldo’s team narrowly won which brings the dollar amount his charity has been awarded thus far to a staggering $578,734. Ian brings Terrell and Johnny into the Boardroom with him as the 2 lowest fundraisers from his team. Terrell is fired and is really classy about it.

Task #1

The teams must create a mobile boutique marketing event that showcases “Ivanka Trump Shoes” in partnership with Nordstrom. The pop-up store should reflect the footwear line’s slogan “Power Up,” which refers to its ability to address the multifaceted needs of the modern workingwoman. Sig wonders why all the tasks have been “so feminine lately.” I wondered the same thing last week… The legendary Joan Rivers makes her final appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice in this task. For that reason, I am shamelessly using as many Joan-centered pictures as I possibly can.

The Plan

Remember – The teams were switched around last week so here they are at this point:  The new “Vortex” is now Geraldo, Kate, Shawn, Vivica, Sig and Lorenzo. The new “Infinity” is now Brandi, Kenya, Ian, Johnny, and Leeza.

Kenya volunteers to be PM for “Infinity”– but Vivica only reticently tosses her hat into the ring for a 2nd time since none of the 3 who haven’t been PMs yet on that team (Shawn, Sig, and Lorenzo) will do it. Shawn says she doesn’t know much about fashion or mobile marketing since she’s an athlete. I think it would have been HILARIOUS for Sig to do this task, but oh well…lol. Shawn’s plan of flying under the radar and not be noticed until you have to be noticed is so going to bite her on her dupa. Vivica is clearly cranky with Shawn about this.

Infinity: Kenya is hell bent on re-creating a classic Nordstrom’s shopping atmosphere – Complete with a baby grand piano and chandeliers. Since they’re supposed to be marketing to capture the “millennial” shopper, Leeza quite astutely wonders if this old fashioned marketing strategy is the most effective method to be successful in this task. Kenya comes up with “Power up your sole” as their slogan but doesn’t have many other ideas.

The competition between Brandi and Kenya continues as Kenya thinks Brandi is bothered by Kenya’s intelligence and creativity. Kenya thinks creatively speaking, that she’s the strongest player on their team. But that’s not surprising because Kenya is under the grand delusion that she’s “gone with the wind fabulous.” I think she’s just dust in the wind. Where’s a tornado when you need one? Starts to inexplicably sing, “All we are is dust in the wind.” “Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.” “I bless the rains down in Africa.” (Sorry, gratuitous Real Housewives of Atlanta quote that blurred into a Kansas memory which related to a Wizard of Oz reference that was interlaced into a Kansas song that dovetailed into a Wizard of Oz quote and ended in a lyric from a Toto song which of course brings us back to Oz…and me thinking about a certain wicked witch and how I wish a house would fall on Kenya.) But I digress… No, I mean I REALLY digressed…lol… (Thank you to all of you who were able to take that little trip with me…lol).

When it comes time to setup the mobile marketing event – Everything is in disarray. I mean there’s stuff everywhere – But Kenya is so focused on the darn chandeliers and the piano that she misses the entire point of the showcasing the shoes. Fortunately, her team steps up to ensure the shoes are physically and digitally displayed by maximizing the tablets they have available for their use.

Leeza says as she looks at the mess (but I prefer to think she’s just playing along with my Wizard of Oz reference game), “God, I wish I had a broom.” Brandi quickly replies, “I know…I wish I had a Project Manager.” Oh Brandi, if you only had a brain.

Vortex: Geraldo sincerely he believes that his ideas are always better than everyone else’s ideas. The problem is that sometimes he does have great ideas – but we’ll never know if anyone else ever does because he just steamrolls over everyone whether he’s PM or not. His marketing idea is to use the “I” in “Ivanka” to demonstrate the different roles a woman has – “I” am a working woman… “I” am a mother… “I” am a girlfriend, etc.  Geraldo describes his mind as a volcano that’s always spewing. Quite frankly, he just makes me spew.

The team decides they’re going to transform the mobile unit into an exquisite dressing area for the women to try on the shoes. Lorenzo comes up with the idea to serve coffee at the event. Unfortunately, though, the space turns out to be very small and they’re forced to come up with a plan “B.” While Shawn, Kate and Sig are out shopping…Wait a danged minute… Vivica complained bitterly the last time she was PM that Shawn and Kate were out shopping way too long and yet she sends them out together again on this task? That just doesn’t make sense to me….

Anyway, while Shawn, Kate and Sig were out shopping, the Plan “B” they came up with was to create an outdoor café experience since there was plenty of outside space they could use. When they called Shawn and Kate about the change, their new idea didn’t go over too well since they had already bought material for curtains, etc. Shawn seems especially worried.

Execution of Task #1

Joan Rivers comes by Team Infinity’s event and seems to be impressed with everything they’ve done. I’m not sure that she’s entirely sold on the foot massage and the green juice they’re handing out, but okay. Hopefully, she didn’t hit her head on the low-hanging chandelier. She seemed to be especially fascinated by their use of digital technology on the screens and on the tablets that effectively showcased the shoes. Ivanka comes by and politely declines the foot massage. She seemed incredulous that she was even offered a foot massage. But – She kept a straight face – I’ll give her that.

Joan chandaleirs kendra

Team Vortex has a bunch of café tables and chairs set up next to a big book mobile-looking kind of truck.  Coffee is being served but there is absolutely no visual connection to the shoes. When Joan Rivers comes by she’s concerned people are coming for the free coffee and leaving without ever seeing the shoes. She does, however, seemed pleased with their efforts. Ivanka seems pleased – but it’s hard to know how she really thinks. When Ivanka was talking to Shawn about the process and flow of the event – It seemed like Shawn was distracted or something. Shawn is no actress – I think she was cranky at Vivica. But Ivanka gave enough positive feedback that caused Vivica to believe they actually won the task.

Joan boardroom

The Boardroom

In the Boardroom, Kenya and Brandi play nicely together with each using their nice words. It was Leeza who cast shade on Kenya. Leeza said that Kenya was “good” but not great because they were so disorganized at times.

Vivica picks on Shawn and Kate thus paving the way for identification of who is going into the Boardroom with her should they lose the task. Kate never did understand the new concept and she and Shawn were really thrown a loop when the task changed dramatically midstream. As an example, Kate explains how she was told by Vivica to pick up some fake flowers for their dressing room idea. Kate knows that fake flowers does nothing to convey the luxury of Nordstrom or Ivanka’s shoes. She therefore chooses to buy fresh flowers and fake flowers so Vivica can choose. Vivica just wrinkled up her nose at this and said, “If you want to toot your own horn for bringing in some fresh flowers…then ‘beep, beep.’”

Ivanka liked the “Power Up Your Sole” concept and how it related to her brand. However, the piano, chandeliers and foot massages all seemed to miss the target of attracting the millennial customer. To me, it was all a bit wonky.

Ivanka liked Vivica’s presentation, the idea of championing the various aspects of being a woman, and the coffee shop idea. However, the product was not the focal point of the event – and that’s a major misstep. She thinks they concentrated too much on her and her shoes and not enough on Nordstrom.

Ivanka said that Kenya went above and beyond from a creativity standpoint because her event included photos and videos of the products. It showed that she really understood the brand. Ivanka announces that Team Infinity won the task.

viva s and k boardroom

After some senseless back and forth because let’s face it… Don’t we ALL know that Vivica is going to bring Shawn and Kate back into the Boardroom with her? Man o man, I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

The leg that Vivica chose to stand on with Trump was that at least she volunteered to be PM again – Which was clearly throwing Shawn under the bus. The fact that the PM entirely missed the entire point of the challenge seems not to matter to anyone. I’m just baffled. I think Shawn and Kate are tired of Vivica’s self-important grandstanding and they’re letting it get to them.

shawn boardroom

Earlier Ivanka also had agreed that Shawn seemed to be somewhat blasé about this challenge. Yeah, it’s kind of not so great to have the namesake of the shoe line think you’re anything but over-the-top excited about her danged shoes.

Vivica then makes a cockamamie statement about how she thinks the other women are a bad influence on Shawn. Huh? Where did THAT come from? Shawn disagrees and explains that she just lets people think they can play mind games with her but that they don’t manipulate her at all.

Trump can’t help but hold the fact that Shawn didn’t volunteer to be PM on this task against her.  During the grilling, it came out that Shawn had some great ideas and Trump thinks that if she had been PM they would have won. The words inevitably come, “Shawn, you’re fired.” How is Vivica not responsible for this loss? I just don’t get it…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Task #2

The teams must create a viral video to promote “Chock full o’Nuts’” new single-serve coffee product (http://www.chockfullonuts.com/). Each team is responsible for everything about the video (writing, shooting, editing) which will be judged on creativity, brand messaging and entertainment value.

The Plan

Leeza steps up as PM for “Infinity.” You just know she’s gonna rock it because she’s done so much on most of the other challenges. They come up with this brilliant idea of using Brandi and Kenya’s natural rivalry as a tool in their video. Ian and Johnny are going to be casually drinking their coffee. Suddenly, a physical fight begins on the street between Brandi and Kenya.

t2 brandi kenya fight

However, instead of seeing the actual fight that’s going on before their very eyes… Ian and Johnny both fantasize about Kenya and Brandi being scantily clad in a bedroom while pulling and tugging playfully at each other in a pretend, sexy fight. Personally, I think if they had brought mud or jello into the mix – It would have been way more fun. Or maybe they could have tried to drown each other – That would have been fun, too! Or maybe drowning is just my fantasy of what happens to them… Or maybe there could be a tornado and a house could fall on them… Wait… That’s so last task. Moving on…lol…

Lorenzo volunteers to be PM for “Vortex.” Geraldo has been drinking this brand of coffee for many years and is singing the jingle as the men sit down and start to plan. Lorenzo decides they should make a commercial with Geraldo singing the jingle… The idea is to have Kate and Vivica rapping in the background somehow… Because you know, whenever I think of a female rapper I immediately think of Kate. For some inexplicable reason, Lorenzo thinks a trip down memory lane of the coffee’s history is a good idea… I get that retro can be kewl – and they’re going to use black/white transitioning into color effects in the commercial… But just how is that a viral video? But then again, what do I know?

jingle dance

I want to know who told Geraldo that he could sing… Seriously… But, Geraldo, because, you know, he IS Geraldo – Actually says that the company should be honored to have him do this commercial for them for free because he’s been offered a lot of endorsement deals throughout the years. Right Geraldo – Because it’s not like anyone else in the room is routinely offered endorsement deals or anything. Puhleeze. Sit yourself and your ginormous ego down. What on earth can deflate this man’s immense ego? Dagnabit… Where is Tom Brady when you need him? (Sorry, gratuitous current pop culture football reference…lol… For those not in “the know” just Google “deflategate”).

t2 geraldo

Execution of Task #2

Vortex is using a 50s theme that morphs into the current day. Unfortunately, Kate’s hair is seemingly taking several years to style into the perfect 50s hairdo. Vivica, the timekeeper, just can’t help but squawk about how long it’s taking every chance she gets. Perhaps it’s just me, but it seems like there were other things they could have been doing while waiting for Kate and her hair, no? Vivica seems like she’d be the kind of supervisor who walks into a room and flails her arms around, makes sure everyone is there on time and doesn’t leave early, but who doesn’t seem to actually do much work. But maybe it’s just the editing. Or perhaps it’s the fact that I’m still cranky that Shawn was fired at the end of the last task. Well, that… and the fact that Geraldo is firmly the center-of-attention in this commercial. For that one reason they ALL should be fired, in my opinion. Ugh.

Everything seems to be going pretty smoothly for Team Infinity. Well, except for the rotten acting job of Brandi and Kenya. However, in the midst of their street fight, Brandi manages to say, “Don’t make me beat your ass like Porsha did.” Lol… This is a reference to an altercation Kenya had with another Real Housewife of Atlanta wherein she was physically attacked on camera during the filming of an end of season reunion show.

It’s tough for many of us to take Brandi seriously, but occasionally she does have some good ideas. During the editing of the video, she identified that there wasn’t much brand messaging in the video. She was summarily dismissed by Ian who said, “You know, Brandi, why don’t you work outside?!” Okay, he was so out of line… And she actually was making a very valid point… but it was a hilarious moment for those of us who really don’t like her much.

The Boardroom

Everyone is playing nicely in the Boardroom. Everyone loves each other. No one was a slacker, blahditty blah blah blah. I mean the fact that Geraldo wore his tux with tails from the commercial shoot was even overlooked (and not mentioned, I might add… which was HILARIOUS to me…lol). I almost thought they were about to sit cross-legged on the floor around a campfire, toast marshmallows for s’mores and sing “Kumbayah.”… That is… Until Kenya opened her mouth…lol…

Kenya pointed out the fact that Brandi didn’t play right because she underhandedly takes personal shots at her all the time – She was alluding to how Brandi brought up her fight with Porsha from another show.

But then, Kenya inexplicably continues, “I didn’t bring up LeAnn Rimes with her when I had my scene. I didn’t bring up the fact that her husband left her for a younger, prettier woman, so she shouldn’t be doing that. She should leave my personal life alone.” Whoaaaaaaaa… She just broke girl code. Kenya, you nasty, nasty witch with a B… Brandi looks like a truck just hit her. I bet Brandi wishes a house would fall on Kenya right about now. It may be one and only time in history that Brandi and I agree on something.

Even Trump seems quite taken aback by that comment. He says that it is a pretty tough statement. I think with that one statement that Kenya may have just screwed herself – and not in the good, fun kind of way. Because you know, Trump has two ex-wives himself. This may hit a little close to home for him. And with his kids sitting there… yikes!

Trump assures Brandi that she’s pretty. He can’t get over how insulting Kenya was towards her. Kenya thinks Brandi has certainly said worse things about her. I wonder if the two of them had a mock fight now… if Brandi would actually kill her. It might be justifiable homicide, no?

They look at the videos from both teams. The feedback on the Vortex video was that it seemed like it might be a good commercial but in no way was it a viral video. They said that Geraldo was a star (gag me) but that the video was much too safe to go viral. I’m surprised Geraldo didn’t take his shirt off in the video, to be honest.

The Infinity video had the fighting and the sex appeal that propelled it into a potential viral video category. However, it lacked brand messaging. In the end though, it wasn’t even close – the Executives much preferred the Infinity Team’s video.

Lorenzo t2 boardroom

After Vivica once again throws Kate under the bus, Trump asks Lorenzo who he wants to bring back into the Boardroom with him. While he is not ready to leave, Lorenzo says he cannot blame anyone but himself for the outcome. Wow, he’s making Trump’s job easy. Lorenzo continues to take full responsibility for the loss. Trump allows him to and tells him, “You’re fired.”

Quotable Quotes

“My mind is like a volcano – It’s constantly spewing… I am amazed by my own endless creativity – I don’t mean that to be egotistical.” Geraldo, who else? I mean who else spews? I believe there will come a time when the entire earth can no longer contain the vastness of Geraldo’s ego. Perhaps that will be the beginning of Armageddon.

“All of our tasks have been so feminine lately; I can’t find my penis in the morning!”Sig says to Trump after receiving yet another female-centric task.

WE LOVE AND MISS YOU, JOAN!

Please note the following statistics have been gleaned from:http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/

CA VIEWERS

Well, that’s it for this week… I predict Kenya will be fired next week. I predict Geraldo’s ego will continue to swell. And I predict I may have to throw something at the TV. Thanks for reading and until next time… Happy trails!

    • I have done that, granted I was on a real icebreaker. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful places on earth (until I leave for Salar de Uyuni in March) and now I just got a shiver thinking that %$%^$^%$ was there. I hate Jill Zarin

      • Oh and it was nothing like a lunar landing, stupid #%$%@#$%

      • Exit4 says:

        My mom did this a few years ago. it was part of a South American cruise. They circled all of CA but went into antarctica after chile. She said it was beautiful. A part of the world untouched. She still needs to get to Australia to complete all 7 continents. Or 6. Depending on Whete you’re from!

        • Me too, Australia is the only one left. I keep visiting places with A – arctic, antarctica, africa, atacama, so australia should naturally fit…

          • Orson says:

            I guess they didn’t leave JZ behind when the ship left the Antarctic circle. Rats!

            I have some good online friends in Australia. They’re weird, though. namaste may get a kick out of this. One has 2 daughters, both on the AS. The younger is closer to the autistic side while the older is on the Asperger’s side. Anyway, the mom was telling us that her younger one talks with an American accent and that’s not uncommon with auties. Which is complete BS, I told her, because Americans don’t HAVE accents, it’s you Aussies who have the weird accents. And they try to convince me that if I rub some vegemite on my neck, the drop bears won’t rip my head off. And that it’s a really safe place to visit because there really aren’t that many venomous snakes there. I just tell them “Yeah, right, because the poisonous frogs and spiders keep them under control!”

            And if you do go to do the tourist thing there, do NOT do the “Swim With The Box Jellies” attraction and watch out for the Aussie BBQs:

            And they have weightlifter kangaroos there too:

            And they’ve never explained to me how they keep from falling off the bottom of the planet either.

            • Mrs Peabody says:

              We are in Australia now and we brought our lead shoes with us, they are working wonderfully as we have not fallen off the bottom of the planet yet!

        • Oh, also it is much different when you are on a small boat where you get to do zodiacs cruises and landings. ZillZ was on a medium size boat that is still too big in my opinion. The key is to be on a boat with 100 people or less since they control landings pretty closely and have restrictions on numbers. What is the fun of going if you can’t smell the penguins? Ok, pretty stinky maybe landings are overrated

          • Exit4 says:

            My mom was on a cruise ship-they did have an excursion but she didn’t do it. You really went all in! Australia is a big commitment. It’s a long trip-you need a lot of time. My aunt and uncle love to travel and are officially retired now-so she has a travel crew. They’re going on a panama canal cruise next month. My moms done that, but my uncle wanted to do it so she figured a trips a trip!

    • T-Rex says:

      Mmmmkay! So when exactly did THELunaticZarin land on the Lunar Surface, did I miss that Twat! I mean we would like to drop kick her to the moon, but last time I checked no one had visited the Lunar Surface since 1972!

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      omg i hope she gets stranded and stuck there for DAYS like happened to some people last year!!!! Please…. the complaints alone would be so so so precious!

      VEENA— you aren’t blocked by JZ???

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Dear God- I can’t imagine the complaints. I am, reminded of the @Deltaassist complaints that some other first class passenger took the only banana and that the Personal Entertainment Device didn’t have a decorative plate around the screen.

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        I am not blocked by JZ. The only two housewives that have me blocked are Jaq (she blocked me the first week I was on twitter) and Brandi – after I tweeted her one of the podcast blogs. I’m 99% sure Brandi’s PR person blocked me and not her – because she’s not that thin skinned, and it happened when her person was tweeting for her.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I’m of the impression that anytime Jill Zarin spreads her legs…the figidity causes polar temperatures, so much so she gives Queen Elsa a run for her money.

  2. Starzy – Another great blog, thanks for doing double duty this week!

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks SJP – You’re so welcome… I’m currently chugging caffeine… lol

  3. ladebra says:

    Great blog Starzy! I’d rather read your take than watch 😜 … Brandi-Kenya-Trump would have me looking for the box of wine lol.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Hello my neighbor, LaDeb… So glad you read… I’ll send you some wine in the mail… lol

  4. Great blog Starzy! Does anyone wanna pick who will be the final 2? I am thinking Geraldo and Leeza. Who is everyone else thinking it will be?

    • Powell says:

      That’s a good bet Namaste although I want to see Ian there.

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      I said Gerry, Ian, and Leeeeeeza.

      God i wish Brandi would LEAVE before Kenya!!!! 😥

      ok going to read up now, i only caught the last paragraph….

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, Namaste… I think it depends on if some of the info that Geraldo is spewing is getting back to Trump… I think Trump knows there isn’t enough room for his and Geraldo’s ego… Plus, I think he realizes that Geraldo’s charity has already made a crazy amount of money – I think Leeza should win the whole thing… She seems the most competent to me.

  5. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. 🇹🇬🇮🇫
    No matter what happens today in all things housewives or in the real world. This will make you smile all day long:

  6. T-Rex says:

    Wanted to answer Orson’s question about SuperSpoiledUnemployedNOTalentBitchStassi and her constant presence at SUR. She is not an employee, but apparently can get them to over-write cheaper menu items and substitute them for others(that are more expensive) so she can eat her “favorite” items, she used to steal for free, when she worked there, also apparently they were slinging a free drink or three her way as well. I have heard that since this season of VPR started airing, those practices have cease and desisted, per management. LOL! Let’s remember that while Peter is a “manager” there he is a “shift manager”, SUR has a General Manager, and three other managers not “on screen”. While TheRoyalVpump owns the joint, and is a Managing Partner, she hires others to do the actual managing. Once they figured out what SuperSpoiledUnemployedNOTalentBitchStassi was doing(she explained this I think show one this season for the cameras), they put a stop to it, but they didn’t I guess really notice until filming had already finished. I would venture to say that SuperSpoiledUnemployedNOTalentBitchStassi is no longer a regular “guest” at SUR either after all the nonsense she has spewed about TheRoyalVpump and also against Pandy. Of course if she is a full paying customer she is probably welcome, but there are no FREEBIES thrown her way any longer. I wonder when they will officially announce she is no longer with the cast.

    • Powell says:

      So she’s said crap about Pandy too? Boy oh boy. Pandora seems to be having great success w/her online lifestyle mag. We have no idea where this could catapult her career. She could be the director of online content for a major fashion or lifestyle mag such as Vogue, Cosmo, etc. So Stassi wants to dis someone that she could possibly come face to face in that arena 5, 10, 20 yrs from now. Way to play your hand you nit whit Stassi.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        My mantra throughout my career has been “Don’t burn bridges”. It has served me well. The one bridge I burned was done on purpose and I am glad I did it.

        • Powell says:

          Right SoutheastVa. Don’t burn bridges. I always say even if I won the lottery I would give the proper 2 weeks notice. I wouldn’t tell people to take their job and shove it cuz you never know if you night need those people again in whatever capacity.

  7. T-Rex says:

    Going to be interesting to note, if the small Spike in the CApprentice viewers were for the last appearance of JoanRivers, and if they will do as a lot of critics expect and take a complete nose dive next week.

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      and it had BARELY any Joan in it….. the producers could surely have edited MORE joan or joanisms since they had almost 12 MONTHS OF TURNAROUND and post production on THIS STUPID REALITY SHOW……. (so shady how long it took, i’ll NEVER understand)

      Good lord if they claim the spike in viewers was due to Kenya and Brandi “bringing it”
      🙄
      😦

    • Powell says:

      I thought that’s what it was for.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Speaking of Joan Rivers…the season she won almost turned me off Celebrity Apprentice for good. I still can’t believe after pretty much quitting when she pitched a fit that Melissa got fired, she was allowed to return…and ‘won’ even though Anne Duke pulled in more money. I thought it was a total fix, especially after it was revealed that Joan’s charity was one that Donald’s sister sat on the board for.

      It completely compromised the integrity of the show- and now it’s clear that it’s pretty much producer directed…just like the housewives franchises.

  8. Powell says:

    Stars I vote for the tornado coming it hits a house the house hits Kenya and Bobble then the storms come and they drown. Now that’d be a pretty good viral video. 😉

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Oh Powelly-Pooh…. What an awesome idea! I bet you and I can even sing a duet and do it better than Geraldo, too!

  9. Powell says:

    Hmmm. If their next product to have a task on is Kotex will Geraldo jump up and say he has ideas? He has been a journalist for 50 yrs.

    • Exit4 says:

      If there’s any feminine hygiene products Brandi must be the product manager. She’s already adept at giving tampons free advertising….

      • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

        rotfl…..

        seriously the next challenge should be for like prostate medication/ cancer prevention or something VERY male- that is not-women friendly— I can’t think of any others at the moment. lol

        • Orson says:

          Close, chismosa, the next challenge should be for dick pills. Let Geraldo be the spokesman for pills to help men who can’t perform or are lacking in what to perform with. Or maybe Gerry’d be more comfortable selling a male enlarger vacuum pump. I mean, between the Donald and Geraldo, are there any bigger dicks around?

      • Powell says:

        Lolololol. 😆😆😆

  10. chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

    STARS LOL thanks for the recap! TOTO! love them, live for them… your quotes are hysterical
    😆 x 50000

    I had said this last week – and i’ll say it again (and again and again), Kenya dug her grave because Donald will feel bad for the sick stickly-figured poor lonely bird in the corner Brandi, ‘she’s been through a LOT’ as per him… and SHE’S BLONDE.
    If it wasn’t Kenya saying this to Brandi and it was Kate or Shawn, promise you— Trump would just been mildly taken aback/ at the same time amused bordering on proud of “someone sticking up for themselves”
    Kenya dug her grave by saying it in FRONT of DT. My only hope is Brandi leaves pre-Kenya OR Brandi shows (and editing shows) the DISGRACE that is this monstrosity of a person … i don’t care at this point that Trump sees it- just that the world sees it, NBC sees it, then Bravo, then production, then Andy, then coupled with the drama she’s bringing to RHOBH >>>>>>SHE’S OUT OF BEVERLY HILLS.
    (but Donald is an exec vp of the show, so he likely decides what the end product is, i guess…. ?)

    Please god above, please!


    I know we still have some—– i’m blanking on the mini-golf course thing name- at Chelsea Piers and a woman spotted them filming last year and took pics and Kevin Jonas was there and Brandi and Kenya. So that is… the finale challenge??? I don’t know.

    Thanks for the recap! ❤

    • Austin says:

      It’s hilarious to me that as brilliant as Kenya clearly believes she is, she wasn’t smart enough to recognize that those particular ultra-nasty words to Brandi would trigger certain reactions in Trump. I loathe Kenya and Brandi equally, so it makes no nevermind to me, but it was easy to see as those words were coming out of her mouth that they were not going to fly. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if that comes back around to bite her in the ass.

      • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

        no i know they’re going to come back and bite her and was tweeting that the night it aired. The problem is that she said it in front of trump (and, imo her looks). If it was a talking head- then who gives a F.

        I know many despise Kenya, i’m a loner here with her- but you know, as even the most loved of our HW’s have, they have their mistakes and slips 😉

        I still think Kenya would beat Sticks in a battle of wits. Not just bc i like Kenya.

    Does Sig become the next project manager? It’s time. I ❤ Sig and the Whale Wars crews. I wish Nancy was here for this.

  12. shamrockblonde says:

    Geraldo Rivera makes this show almost completely unwatchable for me – even more than Kenya and Bobble – thanks so much for the blog Stars! brilliant as usual!! – and very much needed – Lorenzo maybe should have listened to Sig when he suggested attaching go pro cameras to the
    “dancers” – and I am using that term very loosely – Sig went on to say that the go pros were used on his boat all the time – it might have given the video a more viral feel –

    I am hoping that either Ian or Liza or is Lisa – Gibbons wins it, but I am very much afraid that it might be that windbag – who very possibly could be the cause of global warming – Geraldo and Liza/Lisa – hopefully both Bobble and Kenya are gone with the wind soon, as neither of them are in any way “fabulous”…

    *hugs T-Rex really hard* just cuz

    • Powell says:

      I think the go pros was a good idea. They may have won.

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      cause of global warming —- LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!
      HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

      If Leeeeeza makes it to the end, she’ll likely have Bobble come and help her, seeing as she just loves her so and she’s her bestie there. {vomit-emoji}

      I believe EYE-an had a tweet about the bad sides of filming actual tv and film with GoPro cameras. Everyone in the world has one of these ! it’s like ‘the thing’ to have…. but i don’t know if for actual TV/film it is optimal. jmo.

    • austin1963 says:

      Geraldo is just gross.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I despise Geraldo Rivera and I think of him pretty much as an apologist for child killers such as Joel Steinberg and Casey Anthony.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Shamrock – Thanks for the kind words… I wish that we would see more of Sig throughout these tasks…. I can’t tell what he does for the most part – but I suspect it’s just editing and that he’s not very dramatic so his stuff hits the editing room floor…Completely falls on the floor dying from laughter at your comment about Geraldo being the cause of global warming. It is really tough to see anything but his ego.

    On the day Jelena (Gigi) gets the Model of the Year Award, her mother all the way from Singapore post this pic.

    • Powell says:

      Well. Whatever. She looked good then.

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      ok time out:

      a/ Gigi is not her real name??? It’s a nickname??? what? huh? I like that because Gigi to me seems like a nickname but i don’t know. Is Bella Isabella??
      b/ WTF is model of the year? I only heard of this from these recent congrats insta’s to Gigi…. ? Is this some huge award? You’re talking to someone who literally made collages of the original supermodels in the 90’s on her bedroom walls- Linda, Naomi, Christy, Cindy, etc….. ?????
      c/ I’m sorry i know she’s sick, lyme brain, etc… but imo- Yo as mommy proudest should insta a BABY pic of adorable model of the year to show how this model was gorgeous as a baby, blah blah blah
      I think Gigi if ANYTHING should show support to mommy and post nice pics of her mom.
      jmho.

      regardless, i wish only best of health always, to YoFro

    You are too funny Stars 🙂 Now follow me down the yellow brick road and we find Kate the scarecrow (sorry not a fan) without a brain–poor thing. In need of a heart are dear Tin Man Ian. Under the radar Cowardly Lion Sean is already gone and I liked her. Bad witch Kenya and Bad witch Brandi–in their corners and I cant believe I am saying this but I want Kenya gone first or better yet–one of the Trumpsters double eliminations.

    Sig moved in with the Munchies oops I mean munchkins while he locates his penis 🙂 Small task but big job. Viv–bad witch in waiting (she is on my last nerve–yes I broke my vow and watched).
    Leeza would then be the good witch with Ivankas ruby slippers!
    Last but never least (he makes sure of that) is Geraldo the wizard of Oz–everyone? Oh we are off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of Oz–because, because, because of all the wonderful things her does….ha-ha–now go ahead and try to get that ditty out of your head 🙂 This was actually one task where Oz didn’t through himself in as Lorenzo heard him sing the product tune and just had to go with it!
    While most here become nauseated a lot at Oz I have to admit due to age and fond memories of him from his glory days I want Ian gone before Oz unless it is the two final but I do think Leeza will be in the final with I hope OZ.
    Lisa V ran off with Toto!!!!!

    When did they say Poker Night was? Did they say Wednesday? I though I heard somebody mention the day of the week. Please anybody. 😃

    • Powell says:

      I don’t remember hearing the day. 🙉 👂

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      dont worry girl- i’m going to watch / reinstate the deleted tuesday epi to slow-frame watch it, CC’s, analyzing a LOTTT. i’ll look for you

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      wait, wasn’t Poker night like the DAY after the spa-day? or was it a few days later and just editing-wise they had the ladies ‘say yesterday’ so it flowed better???

      ps- VV- when Kim comes out during #GarageGate—> she’s slovenly walking with Brandi – ASKING FOR HER PIZZA— it’s production who notifies her to turn around that Kyle is at the door to go back and speak to her.
      Sloven clearly looks at production and then turns back.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        I believe Poker Night was the day after spa day cuz they talked about it being the next night, no?

        • VV™ says:

          Yes, Starzy that’s what Im trying to figure out. I have on my TL that Gladiator-Kyle met with Kim on 08/20 which was a Wednesday. They had already gone to the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara by then.

  17. sparklemuffy says:

    Thank you Stars awesome re-cap.I think it’s fixed and Geraldo will win. I vote for Leeza. They keep making Brandi seem smart and Leeza likes her, which gives her a creditability( just like w/ Lisa and Ken) — very interesting, almost makes you think RH is fake too #offtoseethewizard I hope Vivica gets voted off the island next– she is so classless. Her ego is close to Geraldo’s 🙂 Yo.jelly.much?

    • Powell says:

      You think they’re showing Bobble as smart? Hmm. To me she shows as flying under the radar and trying to throw Ken and Kate under the bus.

      • sparklemuffy says:

        See, I don’t watch BH anymore so I have no remotions about Brandi– I just take you guy’s word for her atrocities! Yes, she has had some good imput and ideas or seems to. With editing you never know. Ian seemed like an a-hole with his edit trying to get rid of her as she made good suggestions. Kenya made herself out to be a fugly girl .

        • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

          remotions!!!

          Sparkle: overall i found EYEan to be a bit full of himself when he was huffy and puffy at the start of the show, especially when he was the PM- he would have these like, inspirational speeches he’d make to his team that were so WEIRD.
          And the reason for his charity -??? was ridiculous even the Soup had to feature it.
          I mean, this guy must have lived a super charmed life that he can’t find a charity for an illness that has affected his family or friends or just general help kids/ homeless/ vets/ pets/ etc….
          But overall, what i am LOVING is how he seems to SEE THROUGH BRANDI’S BULL$HIT.

          so for that— 5 STARS from me ⭐ x5
          he can huff and puff all he wants. Seeing through the sickly stickly faux medicated panic attacks is gold jerry, gold!

          i’m remotional about getting Brandi off soon, or at least acting like a buffoon in front of so many of the contestants, or Trump or his kids that she can’t hide it behind a smirk and a quick comment in the boardroom with Trump looking longingly at her glowing gold hair. vomit.

    • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

      i’m OVER VIVICA also! I almost want Mom of 15 to beat her at a task or leave after Viv. Such attitude.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks so much sparkles! I do hope Leeza wins, too… but to be honest… the only think that makes me wonder about her is because she seems to really defend Brandi a lot…. I’m not sure why… but she does. It makes me question her ummm…. intuitiveness and instinct… but then again… I’m obviously biased against Brandi at this point – although, arguably that bias was created after watching Brandi’s actions themselves…

      • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

        Stars i think it’s Leeeeeeza’s extra long faux lashes that make it difficult to see the true evilness that is Brandi. It’s covered up for her

    A documentary debuting at Sundance and scheduled for HBO in March about Scientology looks interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing it. Cruise and Travolta are discussed and Cruise will appear at an event the church had which will be shown in the documentary. Here’s an interesting article.

    A doctor says Yolanda has a fake disease and is being taken for a ride. Controversial.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/01/21/real-housewife-fake-disease.html

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Here are the symptoms etc. from the Mayo Clinic. It seems more in line with what Yolanda and other posters here have experienced than what this PEDIATRICIAN who hasn’t treated her has said.

        http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lyme-disease/basics/symptoms/con-20019701

      • Powell says:

        Well Yo has never said long-term antibodics were her treatment from her diagnosis. From her many pics and posts about treatments I believe she’s been searching for a cure for her chronic symptoms so I don’t think he should intimate that she’s being treated for something but it’s probably not for Lyme disease.

        • Powell says:

          Not a cure but really relief since I don’t think there’s a cure.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          I wonder if she’s doing IVIG (intravenous Immunoglobulin) treatments. Before I had my first DS, I had 3 recurrent miscarriages, so I went to an IVF center here. Well, the doctor never addressed my blood clotting issues and suggested I try IVIG. I felt something strange during that convo. Anyway, I then went to one of the best IVF centers in FL and that doctor told me that I needed to treat my blood clotting disorder and not get blood transfusions from human donations. He said I could’ve ended with HIV or Hepatitis or whatever. He told me I needed to be on blood thinners! The treatment would’ve cost me like $30,000 that I didn’t have! Poor Yo, I truly think that she may be getting this treatment. I truly hope she doesn’t end up with something else in addition to her Lyme’s Disease.

          • Exit4 says:

            Same issue here! All I needed (besides progesterone supplements for 12 weeks) was a St. Josephs Asprin. No one ever suggested that treatment for me though. It obviously worked I have 2 babies!

            • Foxymel(Mel) says:

              That’s good news, Exit! I’m so happy you have your two precious babies!
              I had to be on the aspirin, progesterone, lovenox, and extra frolic acid. And I needed to be on this before ovulation!

              • Exit4 says:

                I did the extra folic as well. Didn’t need to start it until after the pg was confirmed. Plus the daily bloodwork in the beginning and those horrid internal ultrasounds! I am clearing out a lot of my baby stuff to donate and I was briefly sad knowing I was done. Then I remember everything I went through and Im over it! Happy it worked out well for you too!

            But you have two beautiful boys now! ❤

            This is very interesting— about the intravenous stuff. Maybe that is something commonly used for autoimmune disorders- of which isn't Lyme considered one?

            That is SCARY to hear about what could happen from blood transfusions ! yikes!!! You are so lucky you found a good doctor– makes all the difference in the world!

            Ewwww i'm thinking about cheater Lance faker Armstrong and his many blood transfusions he got to improve cheat manipulate his game- that is gross!

            • Foxymel(Mel) says:

              Thanks, Chismosita! 💖💖💖💖

              You are correct about the autoimmune disorders. That is what they use it for. The main headquarters for this is in Chicago I believe.

              Is that what happened with Lance Armstrong?? That is so interesting, because this stuff doesn’t stay in your system and you have to keep up with it. Wow

              • chismosa aka/ Lisa's Rep on the blog says:

                yes i believe he did that to keep his body refreshed and like, bypass the testing and all that jazz. He did that in conjunction with the whatever 30 things he was doing to fool the docs.

    • lila1star says:

      Lord I hate docs like him! He doesn’t have a clue and what he pulled as his reference material is not the whole story–he chose that which would fit his view. None of this surprises me as with other diseases the jury is still out. But I will say this about the chronic nature of lyme–it is more of what it leaves behind–other conditions and mostly auto-immune. Yoyo did do the controversial IV long term anti-biotic treatment in the beginning and now she is off to whatever she finds. That’s dangerous in that some of these treatments are worse than the Lyme. I can only speak from my own experience and let me just say–this crap sucks! period.

    The Lynnfam kids are batting 1000 today! Good grades and toilet use! What more could you ask for? 💯🌟🚽 They have likely surpassed Brandi in personal development!

  27. TexasTart says:

    Stars, you’re such a trip! I enjoyed the journey! I think your love for Geraldo is starting to grow, lol. Speaking of which, try to resist throwing stuff at the TV because we need your insight over here!

    I don’t think we saw enough of Joan, but thanks for including pics with her. Safe to say, we barely see half the steps these folks are going through to work on their task. The second half of the show was a Real Housewives fan dream come true – to have 2 polarizing figures have to work together and they pulled it off! Their team won too! The best part for me was all of the talking heads Kenya and Brandi had – Hilarious! The worst part was Kenya going too far in the board room. I’ve been a fan of Kenya, despite the fake boyfriend and megaphone. I get a kick out of her gimmicks…and I thought she was smart until that stunt in the boardroom – sealed her fate – she’ll be fired asap!

    Can’t wait for next weeks travel guide descriptions of Geraldo’s ego! Thanks for the recap!
    PS: The Soup just showed Geraldo’s ego, hehehe.

    I fell asleep before I saw part 2 of E!’s Gia Giudice interview 😦 so I’ll have to get back to that tonight – unless anyone would kindly report what was said…..

    I really wanted to see that before I made this comment, and now I find a new video is out, haven’t looked at that yet…
    http://m.eonline.com/news/617854/gia-giudice-releases-emotional-music-video-featuring-mom-teresa-watch-3kt-s-just-13-here

    Gia’s music quest, somewhat confuses my theory….but I was starting to think that Gia is being used to keep the Guidice name relevant. To keep Tre’s fans interested during this time she is out of circulation. What do you think? Coincidence or planned?

    • Orson says:

      Very planned. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the Tree.

    • Exit4 says:

      Planned for sure. I’m not watching the video because I don’t want to have a David silver moment. I don’t think though, gia us being used To keep teresas name out there. Radar and the other “media” sites, plus blogs etc…write and comment about teresa on the daily. Charles Manson doesn’t get this much attention. If anything-the people who handle gia and her group are capitalizing on her moms infamy. If not for gia who would be listening to them?

        Lol about the Manson reference. Good point a out the group capitalizing on Gia. The fact that is a group was part of what’s throwing me off about the fact Gia is interview worthy on E!
        Thanks for the opinions.

        There’s no doubt in my mind that Gia’s notoriety as a Guidice scion is the engine driving this act. She should research how well it worked for Victoria Gotti.

    I finally read the blog! Great job Starzy!! Your love for Geraldo is obvious-you love him more than you love VINCE!! Hahaha!! Geraldo is the most annoying player to ever be on but there is something about him that makes not hate him-weird right?
    Kenya! I wanted to put my hand over her mouth to shut her up! She could have shown Trump what a nasty person Brandi is without becoming Brandi! She made a mess of the situation for 2 seconds of satisfaction! I kind of get why she said what she said but it was the wrong place and time. Brandi has an ability to say terrible things when Trump isn’t there to hear it and Kenya lost control. Brandi is no victim-she gives as good as she gets but she’s sneaky about her bitchiness-we see it but Trump doesn’t…sneaky sneaky!!
    Kate is annoying many viewers but she doesn’t annoy me-she tries to do everything the ask her to do but she wants to know what’s going on-that agitates Vivica who thinks Kate is dumb and useless-I think Vivica is mean!!
    Ian was totally over Brandi and I think he is done with the “fragile” act-Thank god there is a man in the world who isn’t buying her victim crap!! He was rude to her but she was being a pain in the ass and the worst part about is that she was right…lawd save me for saying that!!
    Joan!! I wish we saw more of her on the show-she was probably hysterically funny but since they have edited these episodes down so much we didn’t get to see much “funny”!

    I’m still amazed by that RHOBH First Look-it was CRAZY!!!!

    Kyle and Mauricio are in Utah at Sundance with the Agency people-I saw a picture of Brandi’s boyfriend hanging out with them-Brandi of course is not there-she’s home sending boob pics to JR!
    I wonder if she realizes what an awkward situation she put her “boyfriend” in and I wonder if she even cares.
