CO-STARRING DONALD'S HAIRPIECE: I'm only somewhat ashamed to admit that I continue to watch The Celebrity Apprentice. This week, we had the shocking(!) twist that both teams lost, and two people would be going home. It seemed exceedingly clear that Clint Black, the project manager for one team, would be fired, as he charged into a concept for a video (which he wrote, directed, and starred in) that was clearly inappropriate for the target audience. However, Trump decides not to eliminate Clint for his endlessly bad video, but instead launches into a tirade against Khloe Kardashian for having a DUI (a fact of which he was apparently unaware prior to this episode, despite having Perez Hilton as a special guest judge). The sense I got was that the producers told Trump that Black (along with Joan Rivers) is one of the very few recognizable "celebrities" left (could you pick Natalie Gulbis, Annie Duke, Brian McKnight, or Brande Roderick out of a lineup?) and told Trump he needed to find someone else to fire.
