Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars by Veena
Previously on Marriage Boot Camp, Spencer confirmed he was a total loser and Heidi would be better off with someone else. Natalie continued to play her bad girl persona and capture most of the camera time, and the other three couples faded into the background.
This morning all talk is about Reid throwing Aviva’s leg. I thought it was a fake rubber leg, but it turned out it was her prosthetic. Everyone thinks he was wrong for the stunt, but he doesn’t seem that remorseful as he throws down his bowl of cereal.
This morning’s exercise is sex-talk, designed to break down the barriers the couples have in the bedroom. Shoot me now. First they have to play spin-the-bottle, except instead of kissing someone, they have to pick a card and answer the question honestly. They drink some champagne to loosen their tongues. Actually – they read a sentence and fill in the blank word.
Reid – Aviva, I want to have more CUDDLING in bed. Everyone rolls their eyes, and Aviva tries to cover for Reid’s lameness by telling us the cuddling is code word for sex.
Aviva’s turn, and she can’t answer her question at first. Her line – Reid – my pet name for you in bed is MONSTER. No one can believe how stiff and boring this couple is. This is not the Aviva we saw on housewives.
Next up is the puppet sex video. They use the puppets to role play; then they switch puppets and play each other.
Natalie and Jacob’s problem is that he’s 24 and wants sex on demand, all day, every day. She can’t keep up. They seem to compromise on once a day.
Speidi claim they have great sex (throw up a little in my mouth). Heidi pretends to be the aggressor – and claims they have sex three times a day – most days. Spencer says he doesn’t have to chase her because he’s always being chased. I can not believe I’m typing this, but I have to admit I’m going to get a chuckle watching Aviva and Reid take a turn at this exercise.
Aviva and Reid make their puppets kiss a little, but she really shuts down. Apparently she has walked in on her parents having sex, and is traumatized (who wouldn’t be). Now she doesn’t want to talk about her sex life, even with puppets, because her kids might be watching the show.
Selena and Kiwane (also parents) act out a hot sex scene with their puppets to show the passion they once had. Today they are more like average married couples.
Rachel and Tyson’s turn and Rachel also has to be the initiator. Rachel admits she’s completely bored with their sex life, while Tyson makes jokes.
So lunch is priceless. Everyone rides Aviva for being so uptight, and she tells everyone that they’re young and she’s old, so that’s why she is so uptight about sex. HELLO – has she met her father George the lech.
The episode ends with a one-on-one session with Speidi, and Heidi finally gets it that having a baby is not the answer to her issues with Spencer – leaving him is. Okay I added that last part, but tell me that I’m wrong.
In the final minutes Rachel has a little girl talk time with Natalie, decides she’s at her wits end, and goes to talk to Tyson. Tyson tells her to take it one step at a time, and that they are working on “it”, whatever “it” means. He basically deflects all her concerns, and it seems like she’s finally going to realize she needs to leave him.
Next episode shows them all crying. I’ve got to say, this episode was a major snoozer. They didn’t even bother to post pictures on their website.
Jill Zarin on David Tutera’s CELEBrations! by veena
The show starts with David’s assistant getting him out of bed to tell him that Jill Zarin has been calling them asking if David would do a party for her. I haven’t watched this show before, but are we pretending that David is hired by the celebrities rather than them being cast for his show? Okay, I guess I’ll play along. We’re supposed to believe that Jill is so high maintenance she called both the assistant and David’s phone and left messages.
Jill goes along with the game, and interviews that in NY she doesn’t need a party planner, but in LA she wants to hire David, because he’s the best. Again, are we supposed to believe that she’s flown to LA to have her party with all her close friends?
Jill and Ally meet with David. Jill explains that she’s about to turn 51, and was in a funk when she turned 50 and wants to celebrate now. She claims she wants to have her party in LA because she has a lot of friends there – for instance she flies out to LA every Christmas to go to Kathy Hilton’s party. She talks, and talks, and talks, boring everyone. After Jill hands David her “list” he tells her that she’s trying to plan a bar mitzvah. David tells her she needs to plan a sleek and sophisticated event. She wants to impress her rich friends that are flying in on private planes and wants to do something unusual like having a warm chocolate chip cookie station with milk. I’ve got to be honest, her party sounds better than David’s – but he rips up her list and says the party will be a surprise. Jill pretends to be worried.
David’s assistants pull some dresses for Jill to try on. They bicker, and it goes too far when one of them calls the other fat. That leads to a breakdown, apology, and rant from David about how they need to be more professional. Then Jill walks in with a bunch of options as back up, but first she has to pass on all the dresses they’ve pulled for her. But that was just a ruse, because she actually does like some of them. David describes Jill as high maintenance. She gets to try on two dresses before he gives up on her – seriously two dresses? What stylist allows a client to try on only two dresses. She voices over that she’s going to wear the dress she wants to, and not stick to what he picks out. I’m sorry, but that’s not being a diva at all – David is sucking as as party planner. I wonder what the ratings are for this show? We’re 23 minutes in, and not one comment on the chat blog. Hmmmm.
— Jill Zarin (@Jillzarin) February 14, 2015
She tweeted a photo of a dress she actually liked but that we didn’t see on the show. It looks a lot better than the ones she tried on.
Next up, Jill calls David and tells him something is going on. He meets her at Bark and Bitches – a pet store. She tells him – with a flat voice – that she thinks they need to cancel the party because Bobby has to go back to NY and can’t get back in time. This is the lamest fake problem – couldn’t they think of something better. She says she’s a wreck because she has friends flying in for the party.
She starts talking about Housewives. She says that she had the best first season with her friends, but the second season her friends turned on her (Wasn’t that Season 3?). Then she talks about Bobby’s health scare. Then – for some strange reason – she tells David that last year she had a terrible experience when one of her friends told Ally that Ally’s dad (Jill’s first husband) wasn’t her biological dad; he couldn’t conceive so they used a sperm donor. Ally became really upset therefore Jill was also upset, and – oh this is why she’s telling the story – that’s why she didn’t feel in the mood for a birthday party last year. Hmmm – I’m not going to comment on keeping that secret from Ally for 22 years, except to say that if you want to keep a secret you probably shouldn’t go around telling friends. Ally, thankfully, isn’t forced to be in this scene.
Next scene Jill is with the event planners. She’s wearing a hot pink dress with a bright green Brikin. It’s cute – not necessarily on her – but ….
35 minutes into the show, PP drops by on the chat blog to say she’s going to record the show (west coast). Maybe all you east coaster are asleep. I get east coast feeds on the west coast, so it’s still early here.
DRAMA – David was at an appearance and his plane is delayed – and everyone is freaking out. Jill walks in, and seems completely surprised by the venue. I always wonder how the guests know where to go when they keep the venue a surprise. Wouldn’t they be busy texting out the address? Jill has a fake temper tantrum, and says she hired David Tutera for her party and she’s going to get David Tutera for her party. Does she have to say his full name every time?
15 minutes left in the show – we’re not going to see much of this party, are we? All those poor Bravolebrities that got all dressed up for their cameos. It’s not 15 minutes; it’s 15 seconds.
The stylist shows up with a new dress, and Jill is upset because she knows she’ll look fat because she just ate a cheeseburger and fries and her tummy is going to stick out. This is the second reference to her fat tummy that she’s made, and I suddenly remember that she has a spanx line – so what’s the problem? Or is this a set up to talk about her squeezewear? If it was they edited it out.
David finally walks in when Jill and Ally are fully dressed and tells them they look amazing. Jill tweets that David helped Ally get dressed. Oops.
— Jill Zarin (@Jillzarin) February 14, 2015
Now we come to the part in the show where everything comes together. Jill loves her dress and the venue. Bobby show up. They walk into the room and Jill exclaims that they had a big crowd. She seems surprised about who showed up, but mentions her A-list friends, you know – Patti Stanger, MJ, Reza, Marysol, Gretchen, Peggy. We end with some product placement as Jill goes through the gift bags. I now see how she got the endorsement deal for that kosher food group. It was probably a one-off deal.
Dang it, we didn’t find out why Jill was mad at Reza. Altogether the show was very unsatisfying. I couldn’t let go and buy into the fake drama.
Chat blog – not one comment during the show. It’s her – not me.
Next up – Angie Everheart is on the show. That’s funny, she was on wife swap this summer as well. I guess it’s the same old same old people going on these show. Oh, and according to their website Porsha will also be on in a special 2 hour finale. I think she had some sort of hair extension launch party – I remember her tweeting about it.
The Celebrity Apprentice
“Top Feuds, Firings and Fails” and “Universal Wizards” – S7/E7&8
On a Personal Note: It was incredibly hard for me to focus on “The Celebrity Apprentice” this week. Not only was I absolutely furious at what transpired last week, but also because Mr. Stars99’s beloved Nana (Grandmother) passed away on February 12th … He’s lost both his Dad and his grandmother within 4 months of each other… It’s a really, really tough time for all of us who love them.
Remember Last Week:
Task 1 – The teams had to design a King’s Hawaiian photobomb campaign wherein they digitally inserted King’s Hawaiian imagery into their original photography of New York City. In addition, they came up with creative hashtags that correlate with the photos. Team Infinity and its Project Manager (PM) Johnny won their 5th Task in a row (They’ve won 7 out of 10 tasks all season). Their photos were taken from the vantage point of a helicopter using the concept, “We Rise Above” which capitalized on a double meaning of the “rising” necessary for baked goods and the pictures which were taken from an elevated perspective. Kenya as PM and Team Vortex focused their campaign on liking buns – Probably because Kenya is herself such an ass.
In The Boardroom, in true ass fashion, Kenya attempted to throw Vivica’s billion dollar ass under the bus but she failed to see the lights from the oncoming train. Kenya was so mean to Vivica that even Trump himself was asking Kenya why she is so nasty towards everyone. There were accusations made that Kenya swiped Vivica’s phone and tweeted the following in her name using Vivica’s phone/account: “This menopause is killing me. I can’t think straight. I’m acting a damn fool half the time. 50 just isn’t sexy.” Trump doesn’t believe Kenya’s story and since she was PM on a failed task anyway, Trump fires Kenya.
Task 2 – After Trump sends Leeza over to Geraldo’s and Vivica’s struggling Team Vortex (They’ve lost 5 in a row now) the teams are tasked with creating an original jingle for Bud Light’s new line of Lime-a-Rita beverages. Brandi and Leeza are PMs. Leeza wins because they come up with a stupid jingle I haven’t been able to get out of my head all week… “Go, go, go Marga-Rita” and “Nice Over Ice.” I admit, this week when Mr. Stars99 gave me an iced tea and I said, “Nice Over Ice” – I continued to realize what a jingling job they did!
So, for the first time in 6 tasks, Infinity loses and Trump loses his mind. He inexplicably ends up firing each and every Infinity Team member (Ian, Johnny, and Brandi) and manages to insult the viewership’s collective intelligence. Okay, the complete arbitrariness of this abhorrent triple firing left me completely pissed off. I would have stopped watching this show right then and there but I committed to doing these recaps so we’ll just have to struggle through these last couple of episodes together, okay?
The first hour of this week’s episode was spent reminiscing about all of the past seasons of “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Various topics were ranked in the following subject categories thus creating a “Top 5” (or 4) type of list for each category (Yeah, I don’t know why they couldn’t come up with at least 5 nominations for each category either… Makes no sense to me):
5 – Geraldo Rivera vs. Kevin Jonas – Geraldo was being an ego maniac when Kevin was Project Manager (PM). Geraldo became indignant when Kevin had the audacity to tell him that he should stop and listen before he starts to speak. Kevin tried to advise Geraldo to use the “5 Second Rule” (Listen for at least 5 seconds when entering a conversation before saying anything). Accepting advice or constructive criticism does not work very well with someone who thinks he already knows everything about everything.
4 – Nene Leaks vs. Star Jones – Nene blew a gasket when Star suggested that Nene become the PM because she thought she was setting her up for failure.
3 – Latoya Jackson vs. Omarosa – Latoya had enough of Omarosa’s constant button pushing and finally asked Omarosa to, “Please, be quiet.” Omarosa flipped a fig.
2 – Meat Loaf vs. Gary Busey – When Meat Loaf discovered his art supplies went missing he was convinced that Gary had taken them and he went completely ballistic. Creative explicatives were hurled around that would make a longshoreman blush. Fortunately, Meat Loaf ultimately apologized and peace was restored throughout the land.
1 – Piers Morgan vs. Omarosa – Oh man, these 2 really hated each other and constantly fought about everything. However, this particular fight culminated in Omarosa pouring wine over his Piers’ head in their war room
4 – Kenya Moore – As PM, Kenya had a misguided concept of imprudently using people’s asses as a focal point for a photo ad campaign for the very family-oriented King’s Hawaiian Company (makes various types of baked bread products) in a “Baby Wants Buns” ad campaign.
3 – Dennis Rodman – As PM, Dennis approved an ad his team created that misspelled Trump’s wife Melania’s name for Melania’s skin care line. It was spelled 2 different ways in one ad (Melania vs. Milania). Dennis was lucky he was only fired.
2 – Clint Black – As PM, he decided to shoot a laundry detergent commercial that consisted of a string of double entendres. “Doing the wash” really meant having sex and the commercial was shot with Clint reading in bed when his wife (dressed in lingerie) asked him about doing his “dirty laundry.” He said he did it “by hand” earlier and that “it was a small load.” Trump said the whole thing sounded almost pornographic and the executives didn’t like it. Perhaps they had taken things (or thingies) into their own hands, too.
1 – Gary Busey – Went batcrapcrazy when he wanted to turn into a dog for a commercial his team was making for LG. Lisa Rinna (Yes, OUR Lisa) and Pen Jillette just could NOT stop laughing. Pen, in his deadpan kind of way said that Gary, “Wants to play a crazy person who turns into a mechanical dog… He is literally, ‘barking mad.’”
Top Fundraisers – By the end of this season, approximately 100 “The Celebrity Apprentice” contestants will have raised close to $15,000,000 for charity.
4 – Ian Ziering and Geraldo Rivera – In this season’s “Wedding Dress Fundraising Task” – Each team independently raised a staggering amount of money for their charity – (Ian – $292,547; Geraldo – $294,780) for a combined total of almost $600,000. Before the PMs knew who won the task, they were told their totals differed by a negligible $2,500. Trump then made a big deal about saying he had never done this before in the history of “The Celebrity Apprentice” when he offered the PMs the chance to keep the funds each had raised for their charity regardless of who won the task.
3 – Paul Teutul, Sr. – The men’s team set a record for the amount of money raised on the very first task. The women’s team raised $126,962… The men’s team raised $332,120 (plus a bonus of $35,000) for a combined total of $494,082 for Paul’s charity. The men’s team won primarily because they received $305,00 from 1 person.
2 – Trace Adkins – As PM, his plan was to simply get people with big checks into the door when the teams were tasked to sell meatballs as a fundraiser. His team raised $419,539 (the other team raised: $250,533) for a combined total of $670,072 for his charity.
1 – Marlee Matlin and John Rich – Set a record for raising the most money in one task when they sold art as their fundraising task. Trump offered the opportunity (if both teams agreed) that each team could keep the funds they raised (Sound familiar? It should… See #4 above). John’s team raised a staggering: $626,908; However, Marlee’s team raised the mind-blowingly colossal amount of $986,000. Trump added $14,000 to Marlee’s total to round it up to a cool $1 million for her charity. So, this year WASN’T the first time Trump’s allowed teams to keep what they earned… Puhleeze! #GetYourFactsStraight
Boardroom Backstabs and Betrayals
5 – Joan Rivers vs. Annie Duke – Joan calls Annie a “despicable human” and then compares her to Hitler. 4 – Vincent Pastore vs. Piers Morgan – In The Boardroom, Vincent bellyached that Piers gave Vincent the assignment to spy on the women’s team and that Piers called him, “A fat Italian.” Piers corrected Vincent – Because Piers said that he actually called him, “A VERY fat Italian.”
3 – Richard Hatch vs. David Cassidy – Richard implied that David Cassidy whined too much. Richard said he got flak from his team for picking on “the little people” meaning David. Careful Richard, you’re gonna be hit by a multi-colored bus blaring the song “I Think I Love You” if you don’t watch out.
2 – Kenya Moore vs. Vivica A. Fox – This season, Kenya told Trump that Vivica was having “wild ups and downs” and implied through quoting a tweet that Vivica was being menopausal. Evidently, at some point during the task, Vivica had “lost” her phone and someone “tweeted” while pretending to be Vivica. Trump and the entire universe concluded that Kenya must have stolen Vivica’s phone (allegedly).
1 – Piers Morgan vs. Omarosa – Omarosa hit below the belt when she went after Piers’ kids in her mudslinging. She said that Piers is a terrible father. Evidently being told that you’re a terrible father isn’t as bad as being compared to Hitler (See #5 above). Go figure.
Most Memorable Firings
5 – Kevin Jonas – Kevin thought he could bring in Ian into the Boardroom to get rid of Geraldo. He thought he could outthink Donald Trump – Nobody outthinks Trump… At least that’s what Trump thinks.
4 – Gene Simmons – Great genius who wanted to show Trump how independent of a thinker he is by bringing 2 people into The Boardroom whom Trump couldn’t fire.
3 – Dennis Rodman – Had a very public struggle with alcohol on the show. His team knew he wouldn’t want people to see him act so strangely. There was sober Dennis and not-sober Dennis. Both were fired.
2 – Ian Ziering – He was fired because he kept saying he came up with a better jingle than what his team chose to use for their submission. Unfortunately, his jingle was to the tune, “La Cucaracha.”
1 – Melissa Rivers – She felt she was maligned by Annie Duke and Brande Roderick in The Boardroom. After being fired, she ran (with a hurt leg) to the Winner’s Suite (Where her mother, Joan, was waiting) refusing to be interviewed on her way out the door. Joan left with her daughter but not before continuing to call Annie “A Nazi” and Brande “A Nazi follower.” It was quite a dramatic moment. Joan also called poker players “trash.” Annie, of course, is a professional poker player.
Season 1 – Piers Morgan – Won $750,000 – “Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund” (Trace Adkins, Runner-up)
Season 2 – Joan Rivers – Won $530,000 – “God’s Love – We Deliver” (Annie Duke – Runner-up)
Season 3 – Brett Michaels – Won $640,000 – “American Diabetes Association” (Holly Robinson Peete, Runner-up)
Season 4 – John Rich – Won $1.4 million – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (Marlee Matlin, Runner-up)
Season 5 – Arsenio Hall – Won $520,000 – “Magic Johnson Foundation” (Clay Aiken, Runner-up)
Season 6 (All Star Season) – Trace Adkins earned $1.6 for “American Red Cross”… (Pen Jillette, Runner-up)
Team Vortex has waited hours upon hours for the outcome of this week’s firing. The phone rings in their celebrity suite and they’re called back into The Boardroom. Trump is sitting at the Boardroom table and tells them, “The entire other team has been fired – So congratulations, you’re the best of the best – You’re the final 3.” I’m still so pissed off about this. It infuriates me (or “infurryates me” if I’m invoking a Gretchenism from the Real Housewives of Orange County) that he calls this team “the best of the best.” It’s just stupid and insulting to the viewers.
Trump announces that one of the 3 of them are going to be fired right now. After asking Geraldo and Leeza who they want to compete against in the finale (each other) Trump asks Vivica who he should fire. To Vivica’s credit, she actually told Trump that he should keep Leeza over keeping Vivica. She told him that she’s always been honest to him and that she always tries to put her best foot forward. Trump kind of hates that she was that honest – but he says he respects it, too. Vivica’s fired.
Trump tells the Final 2 that he’s sending them in his private jet to Universal Orlando Resort. In this final task, they will be playing for $250,000. They are tasked with producing a commercial and selling 10 vacation packages to raise money for their charity. After shooting the commercial in Orlando, they will come back and present the commercial at a live, red carpet event.
The commercial will be judged based on creativity, brand messaging and overall presentation. The money they raise from selling the 10 vacation packages will not be the most important factor in determining the winner of this final task but it will be taken into account. Geraldo and Leeza will be getting help from previous contestants.
Leeza and Geraldo agree there will be no drama between them but will try their hardest to take each other down… They both are formidable opponents. Geraldo thinks he’s a tough guy to knock down. I think he underestimates Leeza. Once in Orlando, Leeza and Geraldo meet their teams and get started on their task.
Once in Orlando, Leeza and Geraldo meet their teams. Leeza has Brandi, Johnny, and Kevin on her team. Leeza is so happy to see that her two friends (Brandi and Johnny) are on her team. Leeza asks Kevin, “Can you effectively crush your former colleague, Geraldo?” Kevin immediately responds, “That’s the only reason I’m back.” Kevin has something to prove since he was fired so early on in this competition… Actually, he may be the most formidable of them all, to be honest.
As they’re brainstorming, Leeza decides to go with a “Magic of Memories” kind of a theme and is trying to get Olivia Newton-John to come and sing her song, “Magic” for their commercial. OMG, I honestly love her (Sorry, gratuitous Olivia Newton-John reference). They decide their commercial should position the park as the premier vacation destination that brings families back together again and makes magic happen. Their hook is to feature a Dad who is overly scheduled who learns to relax and unwind. Kevin is the director for the commercial. The resort representatives tell them to highlight everything the resort has to offer. The team decides to, “Let’s Get Physical” and tours the park to scout for locations to shoot the scenes for the commercial.
Leeza is ecstatic when she receives word that a company called, “LA Rocks” has committed to donate $120,000 for one of the vacation packages. While Kevin and Leeza are busy taking pictures and collaborating on the commercial, Brandi and Johnny decide to wander off to get hot dogs and beer. Leeza and Kevin look around for them but can’t find them. Kevin thinks they may need to get leashes for them. I think they may need to hose Brandi and Johnny off because there’s some serious flirting going on (In my opinion). Brandi and Johnny are just hanging out talking about the best way to microwave a hot dog. I think if I was Lisa I would have wanted to microwave them right about now. But seriously, don’t they all have cell phones? I mean come the heck on…
Leeza finds out that Olivia will be happy to fly across country for her event. Johnny and Brandi leave to go buy props and costumes for the commercial. Leeza and Kevin stay behind to write the script and finalize the shots. While shopping, Brandi decides she wants to go on a roller coaster. Brandi and Johnny return to the war room empty handed whining that the shops didn’t have anything they needed. Fortunately, they had a picture of themselves riding the roller coaster, “Rocket Ride.” In her TH, Leeza says that Brandi and Johnny got off track but that she didn’t have the time to be upset them. Plus – she just didn’t want to be upset at all.
Kevin is a little concerned because he knows how much work it will be to shoot the commercial. He knows they need all 4 of them to get the job done. Leeza and Kevin go back through all of the pictures and finalize the script. Leeza knows she also has to be working on selling the 10 vacation packages but that Geraldo has proven himself to almost be unstoppable in the fundraising department. Even though Leeza secures another donor of $50,000 she is still a little worried. But, she remembers what her Mother always told her, “Stay in your lane, honey. Don’t look at the other horses – Just run your race.” Leeza knows her commercial is going to have to blow Geraldo’s out of the water.
Geraldo finds out that his team consists of Ian, Vivica, and Lorenzo. Since he really butted heads with the 2 guys when they were one the same team before – Geraldo thinks Trump must be playing a joke on him. Actually, Geraldo – You ARE the joke because no one wants to work with you! Geraldo laments at not getting Brandi on his team, who is the only person left in the competition who has never actually worked with Geraldo on a task. Ian tries to makeup with Geraldo and tells him that it was never personal but that he just considered him to be his strongest competitor. Geraldo grumbles and they do this weird handshake thing. I think Geraldo would rather just do everything himself than to have to work with the two men…lol.
After some discussion, Geraldo decides he should be Harry Potter in the commercial. The idea is for the parents to go off and have fun by themselves while their children bravely go off with Harry Potter. Would you trust your child with Geraldo? Wow… lol. This commercial will certainly feature all things Geraldo and his immense ego – Because that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Oh wait… Aren’t they supposed to be showcasing something? Hmmm…
When the resort executives come into their war room, Ian astutely asks the perfect question, “What’s one thing you want people to know about Universal’s theme parks?” They want the commercial to reflect how thrilling and exhilarating the parks are – And that you can discover your own inner hero. Ian confirms the executives didn’t give that information to the other team… The executives say the other team didn’t ask them that question.
Geraldo knows he doesn’t have a minute to spare. He knows the fundraising portion of the task is important. He asks Lorenzo how much money he can bring in – and Lorenzo says $25,000. Geraldo tells each member of his team to just sell one of the vacation packages and that he will handle the other 7. Geraldo boasts that his rolodex is fat.
Lorenzo and Vivica go and scout out the locations for the commercial. Geraldo and Ian stay back to work on the script. Geraldo asks Ian if he knows any bands that can come play for them. It’s tough to lock in a superstar entertainer for free. Geraldo tells Ian they may have to end up singing themselves. Please, NO! Lorenzo and Vivica come back and they’ve also purchased some Harry Potter props like a cape, wand, etc. I bet they didn’t take time to eat hot dogs or ride a roller coaster. Lorenzo has the story in his head and he and Vivica write down the shot sequencing for the commercial.
The next day, Geraldo gets to the shoot early and starts directing the camera personnel on the shots they want. Lorenzo shows up and is surprised when Geraldo has the 1st shot set up when he wasn’t even there yet. Lorenzo and Vivica find out that Geraldo has changed all the shots. Vivica is pissed off that all their work went down the drain. Lorenzo does a hilarious imitation of Vivica (with appropriate gestures) in his TH.
They go over to the famous “Universal Globe” to shoot part of the commercial. They’re all set to shoot – but they’re missing the child actors they’ve hired. The actors are in hair/makeup back in the war room. Geraldo was told a PA was sent to get the kids. Lorenzo tells Geraldo the original plan was to meet the actors back at the war room – and then they would go to the globe. However, no one sent the PA to actually get the kids… Geraldo blows a gasket and is looking for someone to blame.
“From now on, I’m in charge of every shot!” Geraldo snottily says to Lorenzo.
Please note the following viewership statistics have been gleaned from:http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/
Well, that’s it for this week… After last week’s season high in viewership – This week’s episode had a season low in viewership. People are cranky. Next week is the live finale. O joy, O rapture…lol.. Thanks for reading and until next time… Happy trails!
