On the way out, Nene tells La Toya they're friends, and they hug. But La Toya won't say a word to Star. She gets in the elevator. Trump tells the Trumplets that he has to give the women a chance to win against the men. On the way back to the suite, Nene cries to Star that, at the end of the day, a friendship means more than any of this. Star says she knows that La Toya and Nene bonded. Nene interviews that La Toya just got fired, and she feels Star orchestrated all of this. "She's willing to cut your damn head off to win." So why didn't Nene take her down when she had the chance? Nene tells Star they have to be a team. Star says she doesn't like losing. Nene says she knows that, but she has to listen to other people, even when she's project manager. Star says it's a good lesson for her, and Nene agrees.
Taxicab confession: La Toya says she loved working for Trump, but her teammates were a different story. She says Star's a manipulative person who will lie, cheat, or steal to win. She thinks Trump made a mistake, and it's not a good feeling to be fired when you know you have so much more to offer.
Next week: Nene gets pissed at Star before the task even starts. She's all, "You pressed the last button in me, Miss Star Jones." Star smirks. Announcer guy tells us to behold the wrath of Nene. Nene: "You evil. Fat. Lady." More yelling at Star, in which she threatens her and then says, "Now where's Barbara Walters?" This all happens at the lineup where Trump and his henchmen present the task, by the way. So the men see it, Trump sees it. Star tells Nene it's not the Real Housewives. Really? What show am I watching? And then they have to work together. Everyone (Star, Trump, Nene) says "Wow."
DeAnn, a writer and editor in Portland, Oregon, is glad Star stuck around so we can get a glorious fight next week. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
