Teresa calls Debbie out for the printing: "I told [Debbie] to take care of the printing." Debbie: "I don't think she knows what that means." Girl, people who call out Teresa's stupidity on TV get tables flipped on them, be careful. Basically, Teresa had no vision for the display, and Debbie knows it. Trump wants Teresa to blame Aubrey but she won't. These people never learn. Aubrey sticks up for herself for her low sales. Debbie says fire Teresa, but she admits that overall, Dayana is their weakest link. Dayana sticks up for herself, but the issue remains: every week, her team seems to want to do away with her. Dayana says the least money (Aubrey) should go. Ultimately, Teresa chooses Debbie and Dayana. It's a bad call, I think, though I also think Teresa is safe, for the drama alone.
Teresa thinks Debbie was trying to set her up with the printing issue, and when asked if Debbie is talented, she allows that "maybe" she's talented in singing. Ivanka is tickled at the audacity of that. Debbie says Dayana shouldn't have been brought back. If it's about a deficit in sales (which it is, since their book was superior), it should be her and Aubrey up for elimination. Don Jr. thinks that's not smart strategy, but she's in a catch-22, because if she denies the truth of that, she's a weasel. Teresa says Debbie tries to fly under the radar, though Debbie says that, "Being the best player sometimes means getting out of the way." Trump says that's what Dayana does, because he's got a major boner for that one. Trump likes her and says she raised a lot of money. Trump basically says Aubrey would have been fired had she been brought back, but instead, it's Debbie who gets fired.
Debbie is PISSED afterward, which makes sense, as she's the Melissa Rivers of this season. She refuses to hug Teresa (good call), and then signs off with this impeccable exit line: "Mr. Trump can't fire me from being Debbie Gibson." Boom.
Dee says he thinks Teresa will get fired for not bringing Aubrey back, which is a statement that is blinding in its obvious, gleaming truth, but Aubrey knows a spotlight when she sees it, so she makes a big ol' production about how Dee and the boys just want to see her gone and they should just admit it. God, this one. What a nightmare. Again, she should totally win this season. Arsenio interviews to my point, saying Aubrey plays the game well, but it's clear none of the guys have any use for Aubrey. When the boardroom survivor return, Aubrey squeals like an idiot when she sees Teresa, then takes like eight seconds to realize that it's Debbie, not Dayana, who is gone. Lisa is chagrined that these two complete idiots are who have returned to her team. Dayana confirms to the group that Aubrey would have gone had she been chosen, then slams Teresa for not making a good boardroom decision. Dayana is smug as hell, and I guess it's partly deserved so whatever.
