For no particular reason except that time is running out, we are forced back into the audience to talk to Assorama. And this just cannot be over soon enough for me. Asked what she thinks of the women, Assorama says that she won't "beat up on Ivana," but claims that there's a double-standard. Because Chris is aggressive and is called a hero, and Pamela is aggressive and gets to be a bitch. Which is a real phenomenon, but that's a very badly executed example, because Chris is not the male Pamela. Maybe Kevin in the NYPD thing, or Kelly a few other times. Who ever thought Chris was a hero? Nobody, that's who. Stupid Assorama, stepping on her own point. Anyway, she goes on to say, "Jennifer, I think you rock!" Which will go miles to restore Jen's credibility, obviously. Assorama says that "it's better to be respected than liked." Of course, Jen was neither, but that's neither here nor there when you're as much of a crazy-butt as Assorama. Finally, she sits down, and Trump says that everyone respects Jen.
Now, Regis tells us that shooting is already over for The Apprentice 3, and now we're getting "a sneak peek." The good news is that we will not be getting men against women. The bad news is that we will be getting "book smarts" versus "street smarts." The good news is that the season isn't nearly so full of Barbies as it was this year. The bad news is that one of the guys looks like a younger version of Jimmy James. And it looks like Quentin Tarantino's puffier cousin is playing. So that will be fun.
After one more set of commercials, Trump congratulates Jennifer again, and then Kelly again, and tells Kelly to go and get in the limo. He shakes hands with everyone and takes off. That wasn't very glorious. But Regis tells us that we'll be able to buy stuff from the show for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation. Oh, or apply for Season 4. And they thank everyone for all of their help. And isn't Trump great? Good night!
It's not often that I can watch something with Donald Trump in it and feel like I was absolutely shocked by how stupid it was. That was quite an accomplishment. I can't wait for next season.
