The latest episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice” aired on Sunday it was an all-star battle between Omarosa and La Toya Jackson. On March 18, fellow competitor Lisa Rinna co-hosted “Today” with Hoda Kotb and seized the opportunity to talk about villain Omarosa Manigault and the latest celebrity get the axe from Donald Trump, mild-mannered La Toya Jackson.
Concerning the biggest villain ever on reality TV, Rinna said, “I like Omarosa in real person.” However, she then added, “Thank God I didn’t get put on that team. She would eat me up and spit me out!” She also stated that La Toya was too intimidated by Omarosa to take her into the boardroom. Rinna explained that Jackson thought Donald Trump wouldn’t fire Omarosa, but that the decision was a bad one. “Trump was ready,” Lisa Rinna said on Monday.
On Sunday night’s new episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” La Toya volunteered as project manager for Team Power. Donald Trump tasked both teams with developing a 5-minute soap opera scene to promote new Crystal Light Liquid. During the brainstorming session, Jackson and Omarosa immediately traded barbs, pointed fingers at each other and erupted into a scene that made everyone in the room uncomfortable. Later, Omarosa exited stage left to deal with a personal issue involving a Michael Clark Duncan’s 911 call. “He had a heart attack. I’m sure she gave it to him,” Jackson quipped rather meanly.
In the end, the Crystal Light executives revealed that they liked Stephen Baldwin’s scene better. In a moment of sheer madness, La Toya Jackson did not choose Omarosa to join her in the boardroom. Instead, she picked Dennis Rodman and Brande Roderick. Trump scratched his head, said he’s never been so shocked and asked, “Are you afraid to take Omarosa back?” He then told Jackson, “You stood up to her until it counted. You brought the wrong people back. You made a terrible choice. La Toya, you're fired!"
