'Celebrity Apprentice' tackles tough guy

Former wrestler Bill Goldberg got his butt kicked on “Celebrity Apprentice” when he stepped up as project manager. He shouldn’t have been in the ring in the first place.

The challenge was to craft image makeovers for young rising country singers Luke Bryan and Emily West. Trace Adkins, a former “Celebrity Apprentice” runner up, made a special appearance to help the teams.

Donald Trump asked Goldberg if he thought Bret Michaels should be the men’s leader since music is Michaels’ arena of expertise. Goldberg insisted it should be him. There are only three men left on RockSolid, and he’s the only one who hasn’t been project manager. However, he delegated 95 percent of the task to Michaels.

Michaels proved to be a great “assistant project manager,” as he called himself and didn’t complain about doing the majority of the work. He should have complained loudly when Goldberg tried to get him fired. Instead, he - always the sensitive one - thought he lost a friend. What is wrong with these men?

Goldberg had the best line of the night when Trump asked again why he didn’t see that Michaels was really the best project manager for this challenge.

“I was unfortunately misinformed by my own stupidity,” he responded. Hmm… I know some people who may need to steal that line.

Meanwhile, Cyndi Lauper naturally volunteered to be the women’s project manager. The women won, but did you see all the claws come out this episode? Lauper and Maria Kanellis especially didn’t gel. Kanellis reminisced about when Lauper was her childhood idol, but she now considered her mean. Lauper responded that she would give her a picture to use as a dartboard.

Overall, the women believed that Lauper didn’t want or need their input. Lauper did, however, ask for Sharon Osbourne’s opinion because she respected it. That’s the difference. She respects Osbourne’s opinion about music, not the others. I don’t blame her.

Speaking of Osbourne, she missed the first part of the challenge because she was sick. She later arrived, but looked pale, weak and fatigued. As the show progressed, her color and energy returned. Holly Robinson Peete commented at the start of this episode that Trump seems to be giving her a break. Do you agree?

Who do you think will be eliminated next? Post your comments.

    This is one of the worst TV shows. Perfect to waste 2 hours of time by seeing buildings, streets, lights in NY and listen some unethical words especially from Sharon and Donald.

    What message are they sending to society by using that type of a language on national TV on family channel. This has to aired in some adult channel.

    The difference between the two teams was that Luke Bryan didn't really want a makeover. In addition, Emily West gave a moving performance. Should we fault the men for choosing Luke Bryan? Maybe they should have chosen Emily West just to confound Tenacity.

    I'm convinced the whole thing is fixed and that people have in their contracts that they will stay until week X. Why else would Trump not have kicked off Sharon, but told Michael he couldn't come back.

    Holly needs to go. I used to like her from the 21 Jump Street days, but now I'm sick of her.

    Holly and Maria are exhibiting very unpleasant character flaws. Jealous, self-absorbed, combatively aggressive along with other negative behavior. For D-List celebrities, their respective egos far outweigh their talents.
    Cyndi appears to be a kind, thoughtful woman trying to do her best, along with Sharon Osborne.

I really hope Cyndi wins, but if Brett is the winner I woudn't be upset.. At least he's real, and stuck to the tasks and didn't bail out on his charity- amdist his daughter being sick.... like Darryl Strawberry and Mr. Olympics did.

    I hope that either Cyndi Lauper or Bret Michaels wins this season. I was just so very pleased to see Trace Adkins come back on Celebrity Apprentice, even though it was only for one episode. I was a little disappointed that he wasn't coming back to join the Rock Solid team for the rest of the episodes. He should have won instead of Piers Morgan two seasons ago. Also, I have seen Luke Bryan in concert, when he opened for Trace a couple of years ago and he was terrific, but he didn't do so well off the stage. Even so, the men should have won with him. They did a great job. Goldberg had no business being the project manager, he knew nothing about the task at hand, thank goodness for Bret taking the reigns on this one. He knows his stuff. Goodbye, Goldberg. I hope Holly is shown the door next week. She thinks she's "all that" but she's not.

    Brett really surprised me as well. he was essentially the cyndi lauper of the guys team for a while there. everyone tried to throw him under yet he still stands. He deserves to be there still and has been doing a great job, on the other hand im ready for curtis to leave. At first he did good and seemed to be a shoe in but now he just sits back and does just enough to get by unnoticed.

    as for the women. get rid of holly, she's a leech and im sure theres a reason none of her shows have lasted longer than a few seasons....... im just sayin.

    There is nothing wrong with Holly. She is not a whiner. She has spoken the truth about Sharon and Cyndi. Sharon does seem to have a free pass card. And Cyndi is the whiner, literally. I like Cyndie, but not on this show. Her voice is so irritating!! Summer just looks at all of them like they are crazy. Mixed feelings about Maria. Brett gets on my nerves, and Curtis is so sneaky. Trump is a chauvinist. His comments are so biased against women. On this episode, Trace had the best lines, especially when he disagreed with Trump and told him to stop talking about the red rag on Brett's head. Does he wash that thing?

    Holly is painting a very poor impression of herself. No matter if you like someone or not, the celebrities are there to support charity. Not very charitable if you your leader does no win for her charity. Grow up Holly and work on finding things good in people instead of exposing flaws that we all have.

    I think Holly is self-centered and disrespectful to Cyndi.
    I originally liked Curtis but think he's in it just for himself and was not loyal to Bret who basically has done ALL the work for all the projects, creatively speaking...
    I too agree that Donald makes his firing decisions based on ratings..he is after all "the Don" and makes good business decisions!

    The person who should win the Trump prize should go to the producer of this show. How he/she can stretch this program into 2 hours needs an award! There is so little content other than silly bickering, rolling of the eyes, cars sitting in traffic, dead air, well, the list of idleness goes on. But you have to hand it to the producer...he/she can stretch this dribble into 2 of the longest hours of your life! Bizarro tv.

    I think that Cyndi did an outstanding job as project manager. She is the reason the women won. If she had let stupid Holly and crybaby Maria intimidate her, they would have lost big time. She knows what she is doing and so does Sharon. They have expierence and class and all Maria and Holly have is nothing. They are just jealous.

    Her and her daughter whined and threatened to quit more then any people I have ever seen on the show.

    You know what, Holly needs to go. She is so full of herself she is about to burst. You see some of these people on TV and think, "oh, I bet they are really down to Earth." Then you see them on shows like this and realize they soooo are not. If they act like this as adults, I can't imagine how their kids act.

    And one thing apparently most people aren't realizing is that when we see it – yes it is one week apart but for them when it was being filmed it was days not weeks. One day they did the restaurant, the next day it was the Kodak thing, etc, etc. So Sharon hasn't been sick for weeks, she was sick for days not by choice like Michael had either. I don't think Michael had a personal emergency I think he just wanted to leave because he hadn't been winning.

    Brett has done a pretty good job of avoiding getting fired. Glad that his daughter is OK.

    It seems like Trump is doing all the choosing as to who goes instead of leaving it to the project manager. Last week Holly really wanted Cyndi to go but Trump told her to forget it, she'd been to see the president. Michael had to leave on a family matter but DT wouldn't allow him to return. Sharon is out sick for several weeks but is allowed to come back...but she never says or does anything and I think that's because it's the safest way to stick around, to keep below the radar and let everyone else duke it out and get fired. Last week it was clear that Holly wanted Maria to go but DT, Ivanka & the old guy had made a big case that Selita should go and so she went, against Holly's wishes. Then last night, it was clear that both Curtis & Goldberg thought Bret should go (and so did Trace Adkins) but DT made a case that Goldberg should go and so he went. So being the project manager doesn't give them the right to choose who goes and that's a big departure from previous seasons. Yup, it's all for ratings. Bret is much more colorful than Goldberg, so guess who goes. Maria is more of a loud mouth and feistier than Selita so guess who goes. Cyndi causes a lot of dissension among everyone so she'll stay. Same with Holly, she's a strong personality so she'll stay. So yeah, I think that Trump and his sidekicks will pow wow to come up with a case as to why Summer should go...then Curtis. Those two have been hard working peace makers through this whole thing. The loud mouthed, pushy ones will stay 'til the end since they won't hold their spirited back-stabbing comments which translates into better ratings. Trump is breaking all the rules in leading each project manager to HIS choice as to who should go just so he can artificially keep the ratings going. But guess what...I'd prefer seeing a peaceful, kind Summer & Curtis work on a project than the obnoxious Cyndi, foul-mouthed Sharon & bossy Holly.

    First, Goldberg was a fool... first to take the option of PM and second to try and through Brett under the bus. He deserved to go.

    Cindi gave new meaning to the words "micro manage" but the other women were not going to give her a break anyway. The rift there will only get better next week when Sharon and Maria are pulled to the other team.

    Speaking of Sharon and Trump giving her a pass... let's face it, she is a front runner but besides that, as Ms. O told Matt and Anne on the Today Show, she had Swine Flu. I think it seems fair to give her a week off. Trump knows she is not going on the block anytime soon. Ms. Peete only wishes she could say that about herself.

    I think you all have a lot of good points, yes we are adults debating a TV show, and yes Bret has come along way in this show, and yes Cyndi has done a lot in her life and on this show both good and bad and well yes, finally some young selfish ladies are on the show again. This is all good for both us the viewers and the rating for the show, yet when you really dig threw the layer of all this you see that some who grew up pampered came out as spoiled and honestly lazy, why is Bret so good now, well he had to struggle to get where he is now and I know in some cases they all struggled to get where their at but they really don’t know the true meaning of a Dollar. Lets see them manage a farm for a week or even prep for a fishing trip and only allow to pack in a backpack what they need and see who does it the best. Lets pick some meaningful task and see how they do like telling them to manage the trash pick up for the Bronx and they only have 4 truck and 4 hours to collect the most house trash pickups. See they are not real survivors of big business America and I think they would fall flat on there faces if they were given real task to manage outside of the rich and famous type of task like Kodak selling.
    YOU KNOW WHAT LETS SEE THEM MAKE SOME WAVES AND STAND THE TEST OF TIME AND COME UP WITH A NEW SUPER BOWL HALFTIME COMMERICAL FOR MCDONALDS (some of the funniest and most memorable commercials of all time) and see how well they do and or what America thinks of them then!

    I was quite surprised by how well Bret Michaels did. I certainly under-stand Cyndy sounding things off Sharon. Those two know the business. Maria was a whiner and to a lesser extent Holly as well. However, you still have to use all your people to some extent, or they are sitting around twiddling their thumbs which is not exactly what Trump would want if you were working for him. Cyndy could have put her helper's to better use.

Cyndi is an icon and a brilliant woman. Holly decided on day 1 that she was 'in charge'. Problem is she can't control Cyndi and it drives her crazy! GO Cyndi.

    It's funny how in past tasks the women discredited Cyndi and didn't want to give her any real role in their projects. However, when it came time to play the 'blame game', she was the first one they listed as the problem. Even for the project that she wasn't even there for! I'm glad she finally got to show her value and worth. Just because she may get there differently than the rest of them may, doesn't mean her way of looking at things doesn't add value to the project.

    Two hours is too much!! The guys have leaned very heavily on Bret and are lucky to have him. Why are the guys so disadvantaged? They had three people when the woman had five to run around and get things done. I thought they would even it out by now. Trump flip flops too much about the project manager being totally responsible for losses...or just whoever argues the best. It was Peets fault last week and he let her stay. I totally dislike Cindy's charity. We have starving and homeless people, babies and children dying of cancer and other diseases, people trying to rebuild lives after natural disasters and THATs the charity she picks??

    I used to love Cyndi and 2 summers ago had a chance to meet her as part of her True Colors tour, she was grumpy, short fused to her staff and just not a nice person to anyone around her. It was very disappointing. At first I tried to pass it off as just her 'New York' style, but then realized there is no excuse to how she was acting that day. After that day, I was a fan no more.

    The guys did a far better job but were screwed by their own musician. Luke blew the interview and talked about how tired he was EVEN after Brett told him how bad that was. Luke had the personality of a soggy diaper, and wouldn't take any suggestions on how to makeover his image. What was he doing there anyways, if he wasn't going to participate in the makeover. The guys are great, the girls are being catty to each other. I was sooo disappointed with the results. Bring Goldberg back, send Cyndi in his place!

    Bret Michaels seems to be the one running every men's challenge and he isn't even the project manager. He was only the PM once and that was the first week and he won. He should just be a team of one. The rest of the men can't even keep up. Darryl Strawberry was a joke and it was a good thing that he left early.

  90. Didn't Holly treat Cyndi the same way weeks ago

    I have watched every episode and feel Holly is a capital B. She treated all the others like crap when she was project manager. What makes me laugh is that Holly is upset with Cyndi for doing exactly as she did when she was project manager. When Holly was pm she was the only one who could do things right, or make any decisions. Everytime Cyndi tried to suggest something she was shot down. Karma is a B and they deserved to be treated that way. As for Maria, she is not the project manager and she had no right to force her ideas or the change the girls hair during the photo shoot. Tell her to stop biting her finger nail when she is upset and not getting her own way. I liked her until last night when she gave Cyndi the crap she did. Cyndi from the beginning always stuck up for everyone, and when asked who was the worse player by Donald could not in her heart say anything bad. Maria was there and knows that Cyndi does not like hurting peoples feelings. However, she did confront Cyndi and make accusations to her and thus Cyndi was made to defend herself. Tell Maria this is not the wwf.

    So Maria and Holly get off your immature high horses. When you are project manager you can boss people around, but when you are not, you should not get upset when your views are not accepted. Holly, from the beginning of the task tried to take over. Well her first funk was not successful so SHUDUP.

    Goldberg got fired for the same reason Selita Ebanks got fired last week – Ratings!!!. Selita was a nice girls, but no one watches the Apprentice for nice people; they watch for the fireworks. Trump is now eliminating pepole according to whom will bring his show the most ratings. Summer Sanders is going to be gone soon and I don't think she will make it to the final because she is nice and she doesn't like to Argue. Before, Trump was firing all the project leaders, so he never had a chance to fire Goldberg or E-banks. When he finally got his chane to fire them, he took it. Trump is making business decisions and not rewarding people for their overall work. I would have fired Maria Kanellis for crying like a baby becuase her Idol, Cyndi-lauper, was mean to her. I see why Darrell Strawberry quit and why Michael Johnson left to go take care of his family, because in the end Trump will screw you no matter how hard you work for your charity. I agree with the article, the way you win is not being. Last week Lauper was not there and Osborune was not there, but the Person who was there and actually contributed got Fired – Ebanks. Last Night, even the women said that the men did a better job than they did, and you never heard the music executives say that the women were better. Trump knows that by keeping Osbourne he is making it seem that she is gettting preferential treament which makes people angry. Summer Sanders and The chef are next to go!!!

    Holly is so negative. She just wants to undermine Cyndi. Maris was so immature. No, sweetie, none of your "experience" qualifies you to have an opinion on this challenge. Neither Holly nor Maria have been successful as singers so they should have just shut up and been thankful that they had Cyndi on their team.

    Oh, and Cyndi did apologize when her rudeness or abruptness was pointed out to her. But Holly was too full herself to even accept her apology.

    Holly Robinson Peete is a hypocrit. She dominated her task last week and did not let any others on her task do anything. She did not let Cyndi speak last week. So Cyndi does it this week and she whines and whines. On top of that last week Cyndi should of sang the jingle but Holly the know-it-all sang it instead. Yes, Cyndi is kinda a flake but still she is an expert in the music business and should be singing jingles as her's was obviously better.

    As for this task, the men got hosed. There was nothing they could do with that guy. He did not want to change and he did not follow the teams advise in the interview. I guess the men writefully lost because they did not fight to get the girl and took the guy.

    Cyndi Lauper is the best, has always been the best, and will continue to be the best. I hope she wins the whole season. What she said about not meeting your idols because they will only disappoint you – I don't believe that – she could never disappoint me. Gee, can you tell I'm a fan? And someday when I do meet her – and I will – I will tell her so to her face. And for anyone who didn't listen to her before she became who she is, check out her former band, BLUE ANGEL – totally awesome!

    The men were at a disadvantage. Luke Bryan is already an established singer. Also, why the favoritism with Sharon O? Michael said he may be able to come back in a week, but Trump said that would be unfair....yet Sharon is out sick for several weeks and can come back. Unexpected issues in both cases, keep the rules the same. With the loss of Michael, I feel that all 3 men should have stayed. Luke Bryan flubbed the interview.

    Cyndi Lauper knew what she wanted and did it, just like Hollie did when she was the manager. I didn't see it before, but Maria is a big whiner. If she doesn't get her way then she pouts. And what were all those faces she was making when they were doing the photo shoot (and was she chewing on her nails?) She needs to go. I think Brett Michael's is the hardest working man on their team. He consistently steps up to do the majority of the work. But, Brett, damn, grow a pair and fight for your right to stay in the game. You pretty much did ALL the work on this project, and the other two guys were late getting to the photo shoot. Luke (forgot his name already) pretty much did what he wanted and during the interview did everything that Brett told him NOT to do. And by the way, the chain looked great on him. He acted like a baby when he whined about not wanting to wear it. He's not a bad singer, but he is just average. There are so many acts out there, you have GOT to have something different to go above and beyond just a backup act.

    The women should have been thanking their lucky stars to have Lauper and Osbourne for that challenge. Both women have vast experience in doing musical marketing and promotional work. Holly is a whiner when she is not center stage and Maria needs to take a step back and realize that being a WWF Diva really isn't a career or experience enough to outshine Cindy and Sharon – ever. Shut up ladies and let the masters do their thing. Women can't let anything just be about the work it's always personal and that it where the trouble starts.
