Greetings Gasmii! It’s the finale of Celebrity Apprentice already. Can you believe it? I’m amazed at how quickly the season went, although each individual episode felt interminable.
So this week starts up with the last three contestants still in the boardroom. There’s one more person to be sent home. At this point, even Sparky seems bored by it all.
My own words are putting me to sleep.
Sparky chats a little while longer, and the asks the question that tells me it is all over for Aubrey.
“Why Aubrey, should I have you and keep you…”
He’s too bored to even muster his attempts to hide the decision that she is gonna be a goner. She argues that she has been the strongest player, and I will give her this – she definitely met every task with the energy and zeal only the young can offer, but her claims that she is the ultimate underdog are bogus. After a little more chatting with Arsenio, to seem like he’s considering all three players, it comes as no surprise when Sparky sends Aubrey packing for her transparent attempts at manipulation.
That can’t be right.
sadly happily, it is. Aubrey comes on to say Fuck John Rich and his statement that she’s transparent. She says she’s so big and so bright that one is either intimidated, annoyed or in love with her.
Intimidation is a form of bullying, you self-centered twit.
Frankly the dispatching of Lisa and Aubrey, although not entirely surprising, is a bit disappointing. These were two of the most contentious constants this season and neither one went down in a flaming ball of emotional fury. For that I am sad.
But I am happy about our final two! Once Dee was sent packing thanks to his attempts to keep Lou on life support, I favored Clay for the win. And Arsenio is just such a sweet man with such a passion for his charity that it makes me happy to see him staying. To be honest, I’m not sure he really is strong enough to be here, but I love that these two are friends and good guys and I’m just generally all for this showdown. May the best darling win.
In the boardroom, Sparks congratulates the final two and Clay says he’s having a bit of deja vu.
“I am not that heavy!”
Trump tells them that they will meet the next morning at the Lincoln Center to receive their finals tasks and then he dismisses them. As they are getting up from their chairs, Arsenio tells Clay, “I’m getting in your ass.” Clay suggests Arsenio might want to re-phrase that.
It was colloquial. Wait! Can we do a re-take?!?!
Who are you kidding, Arsenio?
Might as well embrace the love you feel for each other.
Clay tells us that he is determined to win this show and put his status as Runner Up on American Idol behind him. Arsenio tells us that he has to get that money for the Magic Johnson Foundation.
This smile is so cute. Can we market it?
Seriously, who wouldn’t buy this?
It is the next day and Clay and Arsenio meet at the Lincoln Center to receive their last assignment. As they fist bump to wish each other luck, I think back to a reader who suggested these two should have a talk show together. I totally agree. Maybe when Kelly Ripa can’t find anyone else to host with her (you know she’ll never choose Clay), she’ll step aside and these boys can take over.
The show could be called Live with the Wonder Twins.
Trump arrives with his two bestest proteges and I learn something new; you know that myth about vampires melting in bright light?
