Aubrey recovers by saying that Tia should be able to stand up for herself and communicate if she has decades more experience in the business. Trump wonders what Tia did to Aubrey to rile her up. Aubrey thinks Tia has been a real C-word. "Catty," you pervs! She insists she's worked hard for every project manager, and Lisa vouches for her. Aubrey points to the incident where Tia discounted Aubrey's camera angle suggestions only to applaud the exact same idea when it came from Lisa's mouth. "That is catty!" Upstairs, Arsenio calls Aubrey "self-righteous," and says, "If there's a god, Aubrey is outta here."
Tia points out the clique that has formed between Aubrey, Lisa and Debbie. She (unwisely) points to Aubrey's history as a sorority girl to delineate Aubrey's inherent evil and Mean Girl-iness. Aubrey insists she was the nerd in the sorority who got picked on and beat up. At this, Tia's eyes practically roll out of her head. Trump doesn't really seem bothered by this whole line of discussion, but I think Tia didn't do herself any favors with the sorority hateration.
Regardless, Trump asks who Tia is bringing back to the boardroom. After much hemming and hawing, she comes out and asks if Trump will be as vindictive as he was last week by firing two people if she takes responsibility. Because that kind of drama can only really work for one week on this kind of show, he says no. Tia falls on the sword, and Trump makes it official with the Finger Point of Death. The guys think Tia really screwed the pooch and could have saved herself, but Tia is happy to leave with her head held high before the really mean portion of the show begins. She wishes the other Celeb-pprenti luck in being able to sleep at night as they move forward and continue to systematically destroy each other. Call me catty, but I think that boobalicious pleather trashbag dress she was wearing cut off the oxygen flow to her brain about half an hour into that boardroom.
Next week: During a party planning task, Clay and Teresa (or maybe Aubrey?) step up as PMs. Tears will flow -- from Aubrey -- and Teresa is "the opposite of slow." It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, the fact that she can't come up with an antonym for "slow" in a scheduled interview does not impart much confidence that self-assessment.
