Meanwhile, there isn't much bitching between Lou and Lisa that we haven't heard already, and yet we are treated to more. In the holding room, Paul Teutul Senior says he would not want to fuck with Lisa Lampanelli. Arsenio adds that he also wouldn't want to be on Lisa's team, because she keeps losing. Team Forte all seem to agree that Lou was the least helpful of the bunch, but Trump pushes on the casting decisions again. The team minus Lou all are in agreement that it was better to have actors, because Penn and Dayana in love is just creepy. In any case, Dayana releases Penn and decides to bring Lisa and Lou into the boardroom with her.
The Trumps confab, and Ivanka nails it when she says, "I never really understand Lou's arguments for...really anything that happens in here." He's so out. Lisa and Dayana reiterate all the reasons that everyone has put forth all season for why Lou should go. You can tell that Lou's spirit is broken when he slips and says that he gives a mere 100 percent. He quickly corrects to his usual 110 percent, but I think we can all see the cracks. Lou points out that Lisa just mouths off constantly and in the 75th pot/kettle moment of the episode, Lisa tells him, "Just because you're talking louder doesn't make you right." Ugh, just fire them both. Again, it is the solution to all Celebrity Apprentice dilemmas. Lou talks about how his hearing impairment makes him a little slower to digest things, and Lisa calls him out for using it as an excuse when it's convenient, which is a manipulative tactic. Lou attempts to call her out in return for calling him a fucking loser, and Lisa responds that that is not manipulation, it's just the truth. Ouch. I feel like the "Scared Straight" kids should just start going to coffee with Lisa Lampanelli. Dayana, as is her custom, remains mostly poised and silent.
In the end, Trump fires Lou for a thousand reasons that we all know, the biggest being disloyalty to his team. Finally! Any remaining Hulk-like rage is condensed into more rabbity mouth-twitching, and he takes the ride of shame back to a place where people hopefully appreciate him a little bit more.
Next week: Puppets, and also Lisa continues to be her usual psychotic self.
Potes is apparently now a Claymate. She can be tweeted @traciepotes or emailed at email@example.com.
