He turns his attention to Tammy, asking her why she "went so viciously against the team." I still say "viciously" is a pretty strong term for agreeing with something that he himself had already said, but whatever. "Katrina said, 'I was never duped in my life,' which is a lot of crap, but why did you just say, 'We were duped'?" I love that he casually just told Katrina that she was full of crap. It's just like the way he said "repulsive" last week -- it's a shot across the bow, whether he dumps your ass or not. Tammy answers that she thinks the rest of them unjustly attacked Troy's integrity, and she didn't think it was fair. She continues to defend Troy's maneuver -- misunderstanding it, as Katrina does, to have actually involved his getting Katrina to tell him which property she wanted -- as "smart," rather than particularly evil. Asked whether Tammy was honest or disloyal (wait...both!), Katrina (to no one's surprise) declares that Tammy was indeed disloyal. Nick says, "A little bit disloyal." You can tell he thinks Tammy is right, even though he also probably doesn't approve of Troy's behavior, considering how he wigged over the autograph-signings at Planet Hollywood. "I think she's disloyal -- and I'm not surprised," Ereka says. Because she is that girl who absolutely has to get that extra little dig in to prove how smart she is. Asked to choose two people to go to the final table with her, Katrina selects Boyfriend Bill and Tammy. So Nick and Ereka get to go back upstairs, while Tammy, Katrina, and Bill retire to the yellow couch. Ereka's white quilted jacket, by the way, needs to be tossed into a shredder yesterday.
After the commercial, Donald consults the Viceroys. Carolyn says, "I wasn't impressed with Katrina, but I would probably say Tammy." I think it's safe to say that, at least in part, Tammy is being rung up for the debts she owes on Carson Daly and Regis Philbin. Bernie, on the other hand, stresses that he's "bothered by Katrina." He says that he found her attack on Boyfriend Bill distasteful, considering that she's the one who didn't bring in any prospects. Trump says he knows who he's going to pick, and he has Robin send in the final three. They all sit. Trump points out that "there's been a lot of bad blood, and [he thinks] Troy caused much of it." Uh-oh. That doesn't sound too good for the Idaho potato, there. Katrina says that she wants to make some additional arguments about why she chose Tammy. Trump says that's fine. Katrina gives a long speech about how she had to devote so much of her energy to taking care of Tammy that she wasn't able to properly manage the team. Now, I get that Tammy says dumb-ass things, but the idea that Katrina was "babysitting" her? No. We saw how Katrina managed it -- she managed it by trashing Tammy behind her back, which is probably deserved, but not the same thing as being on Tammy Patrol all day long. Trump asks Tammy what she thinks of that. "I think she's trying to point fingers at another person because she hasn't fulfilled her obligations." Katrina makes an exaggeratedly comedic face at that -- ho, ho, ho! -- and makes me want to pull her hair just that tiny bit more. Tammy says that she does think there were some breakdowns in the team. And who, Trump asks, broke down more? Katrina or Bill? Tammy names Katrina. "Tammy, I am the one who secured a general contractor to do all the work!" Katrina snorts. "Me! Me! In fact, I have a business plan -- would you like to see it?" She slides it over toward Carolyn, who looks at it as if it's covered in cat poo and says, "No." Trump waves his hands dismissively. "It's too late," he says. I have to say, it's a rare thing in adulthood when yelling "Me! Me!" is a good idea. Trump is ready for the big windup, though, so he tells Katrina that he thinks she should have been in charge of the negotiation rather than dumping it off on Bill. Bill, he thinks, didn't necessarily do a great job negotiating. Tammy, though, "got in the way of [her] team." And she was (dum dum dum!) disloyal. He goes so far as to call her disloyalty "obnoxious." "Tammy," he says, "you're fired." They're all dismissed.
