Money for nothing and the kids for free.
There may be something more embarrassing about The Apprentice than Donald Trump's hair.
Not satisfied to exploit every inch of his own being and empire, Donald Trump has resorted to pimping out his daughter Ivanka for a new reality dating show called Date My Daughter. To quote the press release/casting call: "'Date My Daughter,' starring Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, features dads helping their daughters find true love, with daddy's approval [Ed's note: PUKE! Any grown woman who calls her father "daddy" needs to quit it. NOW.] Casting producers are looking for socialites [Eds' note: Again, puke.] between the ages of 21-30 years old who are attractive, possess a great attitude and a generous spirit. The dads should be affluent and interested in helping their daughters find true love." Here's a thought. Maybe these "affluent dads" should mind their own damned business and/or explore why they take such an abiding interest in their daughters' dating practices. In therapy.
After three months, the long awaited hiring of a celebrity apprentice happened last night, which made Piers Morgan the champion and Trace Adkins scurrying home to tidy-up his resume. Although I thought Adkins was a charming guy, I -- just like the Backstreet Boys -- had absolutely no idea who he was, and even if Morgan's fame wasn't anymore familiar to me, I wanted him to win purely because with the help of his snarky demeanor, he turned Omorosa from a wannabe well-mannered business woman to a gangsta in every episode. When Omorosa repetitively yelled "I ain't goin' nowhere, son!" in a busy section of Central Park during Episode 7, I knew Piers was the man.
While The Don hired Piers for a nonexistent job, his charity did walk away with a ton of money, which in the end of it all, was worth all of the no-holds-barred manipulation and fighting.
Hate him or love him, you can't possibly say this clip of Piers Morgan talking about his charity of choice for Celebrity Apprentice is anything short of endearing.
Sorta makes you want to watch America's Got Talent, huh?
Talk about the season finale and more over at the Apprentice forum.
I've asked Greg Berlanti. I've even asked Mario Lopez. And now, with the announcement that he's got a possible 16 shows coming to a TV near you, the time has come to channel In Living Color's immortal "Hey Mon!" to ask Mark Burnett: "How many jobs you got?!" The brain behind Survivor, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader and The Apprentice recently told TV Week he has "10 series in various stages of posting and prepping, as well as five or six pilots," on his work schedule at the moment. I'm going to be conservative and assume that his returning and current shows are included in the above numbers, so the official tally is a mind-boggling 15 or 16 jobs! Wow! I never thought I'd say this, Greg Berlanti and Mario Lopez, but next to Mark Burnett, you two are lazy bums.
Most important news of the day: The Situation won't be appearing in Bones after all. We'll give you time to mourn/celebrate.
We don't want to break today's newsmakers into "employed," and "unemployed," but let's just say that not all of them know where their next meal is coming from.
It is the nicest day ever! Celebrate with some TV news!
