<I>Celebrity Apprentice</I>: This Whole Season Has Rolled Over and Played Dead

During the boardroom on last night's Celebrity Apprentice, Nene Leakes (after she stopped crying for no reason) called Dionne Warwick out for being plain old lazy during the task. And with all the eye rolling that immediately ensued, I was hoping for some big blowout that would devolve into name-calling and nitpicking and the rest of the craziness that this show was once known for. Unfortunately, Dionne gave up without much of a fight and basically told Donald Trump that she should be fired. Wait, what? One of the biggest personalities (not necessarily in a good way) that this show had this season basically just walked off after calling Nene a coward on her way to the elevator? What happened to the drama? Are these folks afraid to come across as the new Annie Duke or Joan Rivers? Are celebrities (aside from Star Jones) worried that they'll get a bad rep if they defend their actions in the boardroom?

Totally Scientific Celebrity Apprentice 2 Predictions

Totally Scientific <i>Celebrity Apprentice 2</i> Predictions Last night was the two-hour premiere of the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice, and the fact that I wasn't bored to tears after such a lengthy debut tells me that this season is fixing to be pretty damned compelling. Full disclosure: I did not watch last season, the first incarnation of the celebrity iteration of The Donald's franchise. My decision to do so this time around had much to do with the presence of some of my favorite B-list (C-list? D-list? F-list?!) celebs: Joan Rivers, Khloe Kardassian, Tom Green and Brian McKnight (I know, I can't explain it). I was both tickled and horrified watching The Diceman crash and burn so spectacularly, and a little disappointed to see him go so soon, as I'm sure he'd have made a worthy adversary and a love-to-hate-him villain. The fact that he started complaining about the lack of bagels almost immediately was simultaneously endearing and hugely irritating, and I appreciate anyone who can straddle these two polar opposites. Angel was kind enough to lay out her predictions for who will do well this season in a formal, mathematical and highly precise way in her gallery. I have no such designs on accuracy, but I have a few predictions of my own based on last night's shit-show.

16 Reasons This Will Be the Worst Celebrity Apprentice Yet

16 Reasons This Will Be the Worst <I>Celebrity Apprentice</I> Yet

The list of "celebrities" who will be "competing" on the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice has been released and it makes us wary about the new season (more so than normal even). It's an "interesting" mix of C and D listers, and we use the term interesting very, very loosely. I mean, we had heard Tony Danza might be on this season, but alas, not even Tony Danza wanted to get fired by the Donald. So I'm buckling up for two hours a week of this insanity... again, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna suck hard. See our reasons why below.

Two Hours of Celebrity Apprentice, Just What I Never Wanted

Two Hours of <I>Celebrity Apprentice</I>, Just What I Never Wanted

I've complained all season (to anyone who would listen... which is all of about three people) that two hours of The Biggest Loser is just plain old too much. And that's a show I actually like to watch. And now NBC, which apparently just loves the idea of stretching out reality shows so you get to hear the same crap over and over and over again, with a handy recap at the half way point, they are at it again with the new season of Celebrity Apprentice. And this show... I actually don't like to watch. I watch it anyway... because it's sorta my job. But I don't enjoy it. As mildly amusing/annoying as it was to watch Piers Morgan and Omagrossa fight about their respective levels of fame or lack there of, it just gives me a headache. And now it's going to take up two valuable hours of my TiVo time on Sunday nights, when I totally have much better things to be watching, like The Amazing Race or Ruby or really anything else.

The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

First off, we'd like to hand out some kudos to some special reality stars this week. From the receptionist on Urban Tarzan who is the least believable "actress" we've ever seen to Terry on Real Housewives of Orange County who didn't know when to let the onion rings go (just give up trying to have any shred of control in that marriage, dude) to Corinne from Survivor who continued to talk about collecting "gays" like they were toys from a machine instead of actual people. You are all stellar in your own way, if not quite heinous enough to make our list -- this time.

The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

Randy laughing at Charlie while the emotionally unstable kid was on the verge of tears might have just been one of his nervous ticks, but it still wasn't cool. Still, the Idol judge wasn't as terrible as the other losers on our list this week.
