'Celebrity Apprentice' comedy, but not for comedians

Sinbad made me laugh last night, but not for the reason you might think. As the newest castoff on “Celebrity Apprentice,” his parting advice is what we stick around to hear after a Donald Trump firing.

“Throw them under the bus,” he quipped from the back seat. “Then hug them out in the hall.”

In the season premiere last week, comedian Carol Liefer was fired too.

This season it’s the men or RockSolid, as they call themselves, vs. the women, Tenacity. In the latest episode, the challenge was to share a Kodak moment in a storefront experience, plus showcase products.
Sinbad served as his team’s project manager. Leader? Not. His team—Bret Michaels, Rod Blagojevich, Darryl Strawberry, Michael Johnson, Curtis Stone and Bill Goldberg—asked for tasks. Communicator? Nope.

Most of his teammates would look at him, and then find something to do. Bret Michaels, however, repeatedly asked for an assignment. Sinbad never gave him one. He insisted in the board room that Bret possessed the problem. Michael Johnson backed Sinbad and blamed Bret too, saying he was a bad follower, but a better leader. Is Bret the one to hate this season?

Kodak executives said the men did a good job of capturing moments. How great that people could take their picture with Strawberry and the other members of the team. The men failed to inform secret shoppers how to get the picture online, however.

Meanwhile, the women’s team comprised of Sharon Osborne, Summer Sanders, Selita Ebanks, Holly Robinson Peete, Cyndi Lauper and Maria Kanellis kicked butt. It’s no wonder with Maria at the helm since she’s from the WWE, right?

They had their obstacles since the power kept going out, Sharon was sick and Cyndi annoyed everyone by asking a lot of questions. For the most part, they gelled as a team. The women had a similar setup as the men, but they also showcased the product. They won the challenge.

The men, on the other hand, acted like uh sensitive men. Bret mentioned several times that he wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s very concerned about being viewed as the bad guy. So is Rod Blagojevich. I guess that’s why he keeps walking down the streets of New York, reminiscing about the past. Even he seemed floored by the two young women who thought he was Donny Osmond.

Do comedians really make bad business people as this show is proving? Will the next eliminated celebrity be from Tenacity or RockSolid? Until next week.

    It was way to long, I want them to bring back the people that need the jobs, like it first started out. I think the raising money is great. but it has lost that edge of people needing to work. That want to work with Donald Trump.

    It is painful to watch Rod Blagojevich. He should be fired soon. Sinbad was a lousy leader and deserved to be fired. Bret seems to have some personal issues but very competitive.
