Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars by Veena
Last week on Marriage Bootcamp the five celebrity couples managed to make sex tapes and sex talk boring. They must have put enough time into this show to be guaranteed a paycheck, because they are dialing it in. They can’t even keep up the pretense that their fake problems are real. That’s not to say that they don’t all have real problems. With the exception of Syleena and Kiwane they are all very unlikeable, and while I expected unlikeable, I didn’t expect boring. Watching Aviva and Reid interact is like watching paint dry. But the preview for this week show a lot of tears and promises to be explosive. Let’s see if it lives up to its billing.
The show opens with Aviva and Reid whining that they don’t want to be there anymore, while the camera cuts to all the other couples at the dining table gossiping about Reid and Aviva. They talk about how robotic A & R are, and when the lovely couple joins the group, Natalie calls Aviva out for texting Reid to tell him all the things she doesn’t like him doing or saying on the show (I guess so it isn’t caught on camera.)
The first exercise is for one half of each couple to identify a traumatic experience that has shaped them into who they are today. The first group to go is Jacob, Tyson, Heidi, Aviva, and Kiwane. The other group is Syleena, Natalie, Spencer, Rachel, and Reid. The idea is to get the boot campers to identify the source of their issues so that they can begin to address them.
They all share traumatic stories; parents not being there for them (physically) (Jacob, Kiwane, Natalie); sexual abuse (Syleena, Heidi); bullying (Reid and Tyson); teasing (Rachel). Hmmm – so Heidi was molested when she was little – didn’t her dad just …. Spencer’s traumatic incident was that his parents wanted to disown him after he made an ass of himself on The Hills – they asked him to change his last name. I think everyone knows he’s making this up. Aviva shares about losing her leg and thinking that her mom’s alcoholism was her fault. She is an emotionless robot, and says that she never cried over the accident. She has just sealed all the hurt away deep down inside and become a zombie. Aviva interviews that the whole exercise is just ridiculous and that’s why she’s not giving 100%. Seriously – she’s one messed up lady.
Spencer blames his problems on – get this – reality TV producers – that try to bring out the worst him in for drama. And he’s sharing this on a reality TV show – why? He says he has a lot of anger (at these producers that made him a household name.) He sure doesn’t sound angry. Meanwhile – Natalie truly is angry at Aviva being so fake and not giving anything to the group exercises. She decides to take a sharpie and write FAKE all over a poster of Aviva’s face.
Aviva – in an emotionless voice – says that Natalie is out of line for calling her out for not expressing herself. I’d like to pretend this drama is interesting, but it really isn’t. Wait a second. As the rest of them are attacking her, she snaps back at Rachel that she’d never – ever – wait six years for someone. Oh snap. Everyone chimes in that “there’s the real Aviva.”
Next up they need to confront their anger. They close their eyes and think about the person that they are most angry with. Now they go into therapy. Spencer is up first and bursts into tears as he says that he has learnt that he’s angry with reality TV producers, and that he loves a lot of the people in this house and doesn’t want therapy to end in a week. I’m not feeling this.
The Nestle toll house cookie commercial is riveting. Mmmmm – I’m getting hungry.
Syleena decides to forgive her dad, and surprise her dad (Sly Johnson) is on the show so that she can talk to him. He’s a real ass – and walks off the set after she confronts him, so counselor Jim steps in to play her dad as she forgives him. Aviva tweeted that they flew Syleena’s dad in for this segment – so presumable it was filmed over several days.
Heidi is angriest at Lauren Conrad, because Lauren told lies that ruined Heidi’s life (really – wasn’t it Spencer that lied about Lauren?). Lauren doesn’t come out of the bushes – so there is a fill in who fights with Heidi. Heidi yells that Lauren had a sex tape and blamed Heidi. But she forgives her – for being so insecure and frustrated with her own life and therefore for trying to ruin Heidi’s life. Wow – that’s some forgiveness speech. And it has absolutely nothing to do with her traumatic experience.
Then they do a montage of the rest of them going through the exercise – I guess their segments were really boring.
And the show ends with Spencer confronting the imaginary reality show producer(s) who have forced him to be the bad boy of reality TV. You know – all those producers in those countless reality shows that he’s chosen to be on over the years – – –
Is it just me or did anyone else find it suspicious that Heidi’s segment (getting mad at Lauren) lined up so neatly with Spencer’s. Are these two famewhores reliving their glory days because they know the show is stale and boring. Hmmmm – who is the faker now? One more week left – thank you Jesus (in my best MeGo voice).
Brandi Podcast by Kit9
Brandi fucking hates Valentine’s Day. Brandi gets her kids to do projects for her around the house and tricks them into being “slave labor”. She has to keep them busy or they get into trouble. Brandi’s house is a party house when her boys are with her. Brandi recommends the lingerie from Target.
Brandi talks Brian Williams. She’s really upset about it but feels we have to forgive him and move forward. “If he’s a liar, is everyone a liar?”, she wonders. He’s been delivering the news for a long time and is well respected, she says, so he should be given a pass. “It’s a little tiny lie in the big scheme of things”.
She does wonder what else he may have lied about but says all news is sensationalized and that “the news is a tool that the government uses to shape our little minds into doing certain things and feeling certain ways”(wow).
She’s no longer having Twitter wars with Leann and she’s glad because they were exhausting. Johnny and his wife have 5 kids and are expecting another. Brandi suggested to Johnny that he get fixed and he told her he already has. Brandi just back from doing the Steve Harvey show. She thinks he’s hilarious. Steve wanted to set her up with a Cuban guy, a model. Brandi rapped on the show, apparently.
Brandi broke up with JR (didn’t she just say she and JR were going to try to be a real couple?). They just don’t get along, she says. He said something that really got under her skin. Somebody came up to JR and told him that Brandi had to be sleeping with Trump in order to make it so far on CA. She wanted him to knock the guy’s teeth out. Instead, JR asked her if it was true (I’m sorry but I just have to say…….ROFLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!).
She thinks he was insulting her intelligence and calling her a hooker. He thought she overreacted. And, with that, Brandi ended it. She says they’ll stay friends, though. She immediately met someone else. A high school teacher who is normal good guy who doesn’t drink. They’ve just talked, nothing has happened yet. They talk every day, four times a day. She says he’s really hot. He teaches underprivileged kids and is Italian.
Brandi read she’s going to quit Housewives. She says she hasn’t made a decision either way (puhlease, who does she think she’s fooling, exactly? Like she has a choice! She’s playing the old, I-quit-they-didn’t-fire me bs that so many a fired Housewife have tried before). She doesn’t know what the future holds for her.
She mentions the reunion and doesn’t know if she wants to go because she doesn’t want to walk into a reunion with no friends. She worries it’ll be a bloodbath. The reunions are a mind fuck and last for hours. She doesn’t know if Yolanda can make it and, GET THIS, Kim is mad at her right now because in the last episode it makes her look like she was saying Kim wasn’t well (gee, wonder where Kim got that idea).
She says she was only worried about her because she has so much on her plate. She says she was only talking about the ONE TIME Kim took a pill (actually, no, she clearly made reference to something other than that single incident when she talked to Lisa R.). “Did she fall off the wagon? I don’t know. That’s what I was told”(that’s what she was told? Brandi sat right next to Kim on PN so if she didn’t know she was even drunker than I thought).
Brandi blames editing for making it look like she thought something was going on with Kim after Lisa R. opened up that line of dialogue (no, it looked like that because that’s what she said). She’s been around Kim and Kim’s been “nothing but great”–except for the emotional problems anyone would have watching the love of her life die right in front of her, Brandi says.
So, she says, Kim is mad at her and she loves her so much. Brandi doesn’t want to walk into the reunion with all the women going after her (yeah, well, I think Eileen didn’t want to have wine thrown in her face). Without her at the reunion it would be boring with Lisa would bringing her new puppy and Kyle talking about all her vacations.
Brandi calls her dad. It’s not a good time for him, he’s waiting to hear from a guy from Craig’s list. “You don’t have 5 minutes for me?”…well thanks for nothin'”. Brandi tells him she doesn’t have a guest today so she needs to call people. He tells her to call him back in 2 hours. She won’t be there in 2 hours, she tells him before wearily whining that if you can’t count on your family who can you count on?
Brandi then talks about how she had Johnny record a video for her dad when he was in the hospital and he loved it. Brandi’s wine, Unfiltered Blond (lame), comes out next week. It’s a chardonnay. Brandi calls Johnny. This was before the finale and she wants to know who he thinks will win. Leeza, he says. Brandi thinks Geraldo is strong but he had too many losses.
Brandi tells Johnny that he and his wife need to stop having sex. Not going to happen, Johnny says. Brandi mentions Johnny has an incredible house. Brandi thinks his wife is a real ball breaker, a strong woman. Brandi says that it looked like Johnny didn’t do much on the show but that he really did. Johnny was drama free and quiet.
Johnny has a band and they’re coming out with a CD soon. Johnny struggled with a stutter and music helped him with it. He’s a big fan of heavy metal. Bryan Johnson from AC/DC played Johnny’s wedding. Brandi doesn’t know baseball and couldn’t believe what a superstar Johnny was when she was with him in NY. He had a lot of love and hate thrown at him from fans while there, apparently. Johnny is proud of the great job Brandi did on CA and signs off. Brandi’s proud of herself, too.
Brandi says people thought she was hooking up with him during filming but his wife was actually there the whole time. Brandi’s “teacher” lives in NY and planned on seeing him after filming the finale. Brandi calls her father again. When she says hello he asks who’s calling, no joke (lol). Her dad thought Brandi hung up on him earlier and thought she was mad at him.
She asks him how her sister, Tricia, is feeling after having surgery (didn’t she say last week that she was calling her sister constantly to see how she was doing?). If her sister’s surgery doesn’t work she’ll have to have a hip replaced. And, Brian (her brother?) had blood on the brain. Brandi says all these health issues with her family-her dad was in the hospital, too, recently-is giving her an ulcer.
Her dad mentions that Brandi has a heart murmur which she reminds him he gave her. Apparently, they run in his family. “Those damn French Canadians”, Brandi jokes. She asks him to tell the world something nice about her because all the mean things about her out there. He says that for someone who never went to college, never opened a book in school…he trails off because the guy from Craig’s list is calling and he has to go (lol). “God bless him”, Brandi says. She’s says he’ll tell her she’s either anorexic or has gained some weight when she sees him. “That’s just my dad”, she laughs.
Hey, since her dad had to go and couldn’t finish his thought, I’ve got something nice to say about Brandi this week….she mercifully ended the show after only 40 min!! Woo freaking hoo!
The Celebrity Apprentice
“Live Finale: A New Celebrity Apprentice is Crowned” – S7/9
Please Note: I found this finale to be all over the place because it went back and forth between a live show and showing bits and pieces of the final task with interwoven quotes here and there from this season’s participants. I’ve tried to organize the major highlights in a way that would at least make some sense…lol…
Remember Last Week:
Vivica fell on her sword when she confirmed to Trump that Leeza deserves to be in the finale more than she. Trump hated that she said it but pretends to respect it. It really doesn’t matter – once Kevin Jonas was out of the running – I think most of us knew that the final showdown would come down to Leeza and Geraldo – But not because Geraldo deserves it – but because of Trumps undying and inexplicable love for him. Leeza had Brandi, Johnny and Kevin on her team. Geraldo had Ian, Lorenzo, and Vivica. Leeza had issues with Brandi and Johnny going off and eating hot dogs and playing on the roller coaster while Geraldo had issues with his ginormous ego taking over the world when he cast himself as a “Hero.” Puhleeze.
The episode opens with Trump walking onto the stage still wearing a winter coat… But don’t you worry, boys and girls – Fortunately, our favorite receptionist, Amanda, is on hand and evidently she has an advanced degree in coat wrangling because she was poised and ready to disrobe the king at the mere wave of his mighty pinkie finger. I’m sure we would have seen her bow and kiss his ring but unfortunately the camera cut away just in time. Gosh, it’s only about 2.3 seconds into the show and I’m already creeped out by Trump.
Donald, Jr. and Ivanka are seated with Trump at the majestic over-compensating conference room table. Wait… Where’s Eric – the “other” son? Oh, there he is politely sitting in the audience of peasants just like a good little afterthought should. I guess being the son that’s NOT named after “the Donald” doesn’t communicate loud enough that you’re the lessor son – Trump continues to drive home that point by not allowing Eric to sit at the adult table.
While it’s true that Don, Jr. and Ivanka were the advisors on the final task – but Eric participated just as much this season: Eric and Don were advisors on 7 tasks; Ivanka on only 6 tasks; Joan on 2 tasks; and, George and Piers each on 1 task. So why not have Eric join them at the table – and you could even add George who is always a fan favorite to even out the table, if necessary. But I guess there just wasn’t enough room at the ginormous table because Trump’s ego takes up so much space. But I will say that I for one am glad Piers wasn’t there because after all, who can stand Piers?
Okay… The final task requires the teams to create a commercial for Universal Orlando Resort which they will then present to the executives. The fundraising portion is that they only have 10 resort vacation packages to sell – So they must get the highest dollar amount possible for each package.
Both teams seem to be doing pretty well in the final task. Kevin is a huge asset to Leeza because he can simultaneously direct the commercial while corralling the throngs of teenaged fans that follow him everywhere he goes. Kevin’s depth of skill allows them to be ahead of schedule which frees up Leeza to coordinate and focus on the rest of the task. Leeza is rightfully nervous about the fundraising portion since there seems to be an infinite stream of money pouring in for Geraldo.
Let’s compare how each team did on the final task, but first let’s focus on what’s really important – The player’s charities:
Geraldo: Life’s WORC – Their mission is to facilitate an independent and productive life experience for individuals with developmental disabilities and autism. http://www.lifesworc.org/
Leeza: Leeza’s Care Connection – A community gathering place, resource center and support system for family caregivers of someone with a memory disorder, a chronic illness and/or a progressive illness. http://www.leezascareconnection.org/
I had no knowledge or awareness of either of these charities before this season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” – So both have effectively increased the general public’s awareness of the existence of the charities. It’s kewl that in this final task each charity will retain the amount their team raised for them through the selling of the vacation packages – With the winner receiving an additional $250,000 for their charity.
Commercial’s Overall Theme
Leeza – “When Fun Is Your Only Agenda – The moments are Universal” – An extremely detail-oriented Dad who plans things down to the every single stinkin’ minute suddenly discovers how to relax through the magic of what the Universal Orlando Resort has to offer.
Geraldo – “Discover Your Inner Hero” – Children go off on a wonderful adventure with Harry Potter who is played, of course, by the iconic Geraldo (According to Gilbert – Geraldo will tell you himself just how iconic he is… Insert gratuitous eye roll here). There are myriads of other heroic characters in the franchise (including Spider Man, no less) – I’m not sure why they weren’t included somehow. Harry Potter is not the first character I think of when I think of a “Hero” or “Superhero” but okay…
Entertainment at the Presentation
Leeza – Olivia Newton-John (Kewl people call her ONJ) sang her hit,“Magic” at the presentation. The song had a nice connection to Leeza’s theme of her commercial. On a side note, Vivica declares she has a crush on ONJ. I think Vivica would love to tell ONJ, “I Honestly Love You” because she’s“Hopelessly Devoted” to her unless ONJ has “Something Better to Do.”Don’t we all know that Vivica would persist and say, “You’re the One that I want” honey, so “Let’s Get Physical… Physical… I want to Get Physical…”ONJ would tell her to calm down and be prompted to ask her, “Have you Never Been Mellow? Have you never tried?” I imagine Vivica responding with, “If Not for You” I would never reach “A place where nobody dared to go…“Xanadu.” Vivica would end their conversation with, “If you Love Me – Let Me Know… If you don’t… Then let me go” and “Let me be there in your morning…Let me be there in your night…” (Sorry, we just took a mentascental stroll down a list of ONJ hit songs…Who knew she had THAT many… and more! Whoa!)
Geraldo – Tony Orlando sang his mega hit, “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Tree” at the presentation. The song is about a convict coming home after doing his time in prison. While arguably, it’s Tony’s biggest hit song – It had absolutely no connection whatsoever to the commercial. Fortunately though, Tony DID have a very heart-felt, personal, and tearful connection with Geraldo’s charity because he has a sister with cerebral palsy. The connection was real and it was very touching. I may not love Geraldo’s ego but I do love his heart for his charity.
Executive’s Feedback about the Commercials
The Executives thought Geraldo’s commercial did a great job of emphasizing the “discover your inner hero” theme. They liked how they incorporated the celebrity of their team into the commercial itself which just added to the overall entertainment value of the commercial. Unfortunately, they thought the presentation itself was slightly disjointed. While they loved Tony Orlando’s performance – They didn’t feel that it effectively connected back to the resort. They would have also preferred it if the commercial showed the family having fun together instead of the children and adults having separate experiences.
The Executives thought that Leeza’s presentation was extremely articulate and encompassed the various experiences the park has to offer. They also loved how Leeza fluidly and naturally tied the presentation into her charity. They thought Olivia Newton-John’s performance of “Magic” was another great tie that brought everything together. However, they would have liked to have seen the team members used in the commercial as themselves – Their celebrity and star power would have been significant. They didn’t feel like the story about the Dad with a strict agenda went far enough to fully engage the viewer in what’s great about the park.
Wow… Who saw THAT coming? I mean it was clear that since Geraldo was the Project Manager on the only 2 fundraising tasks of the entire season (with the exception of this final task) so he already gone to the fundraising well twice… But I honestly thought that his pockets were pretty danged deep. It shocks me that Leeza brought in more than double what Geraldo did.
Things said about Geraldo
~~ “Geraldo is blustery… like a cold wind… You kinda have to shelter yourself at first cuz its snappy.” Lorenzo about Geraldo.
~~ When Ian sees Geraldo get teary-eyed with gratitude over Tony Orlando’s eagerness to provide entertainment to benefit Geraldo’s charity, Ian actually admits that Geraldo is actually “A good guy.”
~~ “Geraldo just finds a way to survive… Survive and thrive through each task. He lost five in a row and yet stayed above the fray.” Ian says about Geraldo’s overall performance.
~~ Kate appreciates Geraldo’s unapologetic honesty.
~~ “I adore Geraldo because we never had to work together.” Brandi says this of Geraldo because she was the only one in the final stages of the game that had never had to be on Geraldo’s team.
~~ “Geraldo’s great – He’ll tell you himself.” Gilbert says of Geraldo…lol.
~~ Kate, Kenya and Gilbert all think Geraldo should win primarily because he was able to raise nearly $750,000 for his charity.
~~ Trump told Geraldo, “You’re tough, you’re smart, you’re brilliant in so many different ways – and you’ve shown the world what kind of a guy you are.” Yep, Trump’s right – He certainly has… Geraldo has shown himself to be an egotistical, maniacal narcissist and a complete control freak. Oh wait, that wasn’t the message he was hoping to send? lol
Things Said About Leeza
~~ “She’s so poised, so classy, so confident – and she really understands how to treat people which really is a big deal.” Kevin says of Leeza.
~~ Brandi gushes about how Leeza is “an incredible leader” and has “zero ego.”
~~ Johnny points to the statistics and says, “The stats don’t lie – Leeza should win.”
~~ Kevin cites Leeza’s track record and says that Leeza should win.
~~ Surprisingly, Vivica says Leeza should win, “Without a doubt.” I think that statement really shocked Geraldo.
~~ Jaimie agrees that Leeza should win.
~~ Trump told Leeza, “You lead with kindness and you have tremendous leadership ability.” Then he suggested that she get a job on The Today Show.
~~ Geraldo also sings the praises of Leeza and says that she is “high-functioning.” I kind of thought that was odd wording, but okay. He refers to Lisa as “a safe choice” and tries to remind Trump that he didn’t get to where he is today by making safe choices.
Leeza’s Quotes and Thoughts
~~ “Those who are forgetting – Should never be forgotten.” Lisa said this when referring to those battling with Alzheimer’s.
~~ “Honey, you’re a storyteller – And now this is your story and I want you to tell it – And I want you to make it count.” Leeza’s Mom told her before as Leeza describes, “She descended into the darkness.”
~~ “Thank you Mr. Trump for changing my life… For giving me a platform.”Leeza says during her final presentation to Trump.
~~ After Trump admits to Leeza that he honestly didn’t think Leeza was tough enough to make it to the end Lisa succinctly obliterated his uninformed, misguided, and discriminatory viewpoint. Leeza perfectly responds, “Never underestimate a woman with passion who knows what she’s doing and what she wants.” Oh snap… You go, girl!
Geraldo Quotes and Thoughts
~~ “Once Lorenzo conceded that I was in charge, the whole day went smoother,” says Geraldo.
~~ Geraldo got mentascental about his time during this season and jokingly said, “I’ve showed that an old guy can still get it up!” I’m not kidding… he really said that!
~~ Geraldo thought that Trump played a trick on him when Ian and Lorenzo were on his team. Geraldo’s ego previously collided with theirs which made working together pretty untenable. However, they were all able to move past it and Geraldo ended up “honoring” them for really working hard and coming through for him.
~~ Geraldo humbly describes himself as, “A very familiar – Almost… some would say, ‘iconic figure in American news.’” I physically gagged when I heard that one… lol. I mean, who refers to themselves as “iconic?”
Other Noteworthy Moments (Or things that made me laff)
~~The tribute to Joan Rivers was very touching. Melissa came out on stage to a standing ovation and a towering Ivanka walked her to her place at the conference table. A well done montage of Joan’s appearances on The Celebrity Apprentice was shown and was followed by another standing ovation. Trump expressed how much Joan has meant to him and to the show. It was pretty kewl.
~~ PhoneGate 2015™©® was revisited when Trump asked Kenya point blank if she stole Vivica’s phone. Kenya continues her denial of doing it. I wish Trump had asked if Kenya KNEW who stole Vivica’s phone… THAT would have been very telling… I mean, you know… if Kenya didn’t lie about it and stuff. Vivica doesn’t believe Kenya for some strange reason…lol.
~~ Trump asks Gilbert if maybe he shouldn’t have come on the show at all because he kind of gave up in the end. Gilbert’s response tied nicely back intoPhoneGate 2015™©® when he said, “Well I gave up ‘cuz I’m going through menopause.”
~~ At the presentation of the commercial, Geraldo really fumbled the name of the show that Lorenzo was on (Renegade). I dunno… It just made me laff for some reason.
~~ Also at the presentation, Geraldo correctly pronounces Ian’s first name but then proceeds to butcher his last name by calling him, “Ian Zierling.” Ian felt the need to correct Geraldo right then and there because you know… Life, as we know it would cease to exist if his precious name wasn’t pronounced correctly. Hey Ian… Perhaps you should consider a name change to “Bob Jones” or something.
~~ However, nothing could be worse than Trump’s complete slaughtering of Keshia Knight Pulliam’s name when he introduced her in the Finale. She didn’t make a big deal about it, though. Later in the show, when Trump made reference to his mistake, Keisha graciously started saying how she was just happy for the opportunity to draw attention to her charity… At least that’s what I think she said because Trump drowned her out as he steamrolled over her comments and quickly moved forward with his agenda…lol.
~~ I was sad that Shawn Johnson wasn’t part of the Finale for some reason – I have no idea why. Nothing was said about her at all. I really like her. (Note from Veena – she tweeted she couldn’t make it because her flight was cancelled due to snow.)
After Trump gave the two finalists a moment to plead their case he announced that Leeza won the final task. It’s clear at this point that Leeza will inevitably win… and sure enough she does! Yay! It would have been HORRIBLE if Trump had given it to Geraldo. Leeza quite aptly pointed at her record of 8 wins and 3 losses and that she never once was called back into the Boardroom. She also beat Geraldo on this final task – Even on the fundraising portion of it.
To be honest, I sometimes struggle watching this show because it’s filled with ego supremes and I’m not even talking about Trump’s at the moment. But the thing is… I still love that charities get money… I love that I learn about charities that I’ve never even heard of… And it’s always entertaining when people (especially celebrities) are taken out of their comfort zone and put into high pressured situations. Trump continues to piss me off to no end… I mean seriously, he singlehandedly exterminated the team that had won 7 out of 10 tasks – That’s some serious wonkiness.
But at the end of the day… In my opinion, the right person won. As Trump would say, “It wasn’t even close.” Oh sure, I would have loved to have seen Kevin make it further because I think he would have been a formidable force for everyone… But overall – I REALLY love Leeza’s win. She definitively demonstrated that a true leader does not have to be cutthroat, conniving, mean, vindictive or sharklike. She showed that an effective leader could be classy, validating, kind, strong and extremely successful.
Whose team would I rather be on… Geraldo or Leeza’s? I would rather be on Leeza’s Team every single day of the week and twice on Sundays. Wouldn’t you?
Please note the following viewership statistics have been gleaned from:http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/
Well, that’s it for this season! Thanks so much for watching and reading… I had way too much fun for words – Hope you did, too! See you the next time we have something to snark about! Happy trails!
