In one of the least dramatic Celebrity Apprentice eliminations ever, Niki Taylor was fired last Sunday after shrugging all the blame for her team's loss onto her own shoulders so efficiently, there wasn't even a need to bring anybody with her into the final boardroom. It was quick, painless and kind of shockingly apathetic. To defend whatever it was that made her do that, Niki participated in a media call this week, and basically used the opportunity to discuss (accurately, but still) what a heinous bitch Dionne Warwick is. Tell me something I don't know, lady! Read on for the catty highlights.
I know we all have Royal Wedding fever today -- or if you're me, Royal Wedding hats fever -- but it is still Friday, which means it's time to take a break from The Most Important Wedding of All Time to turn our attention to royals of a different kind: the royal douchebags of this week's reality TV. Here are my five nominees, plus this week's winner.

Is Kendra from The Girls Next Door the new face of The Olive Garden? Not if the OG brass has anything to say about it. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal [via Videogum], Ms. Wilkinson is a devoted and vocal fan of the free bread sticks haven and doesn't miss a chance to talk it up, enumerating the virtues of her most favorite menu items (artichoke dip, salad and chicken parmigiana) to anyone who will listen. You'd think the chain would be thrilled at the free publicity, but apparently being that they're a 'family company' or some dumb crap, they're not so stoked on being endorsed by a woman who gets nekkid for a living.
