Sunday night’s Celebrity Apprentice was chock full-o drama!

Team Unanimous – Arsenio Hall, Aubrey O’Day and Teresa Giudice – and Team Forte – Lisa Lampanelli and Clay Aiken – two had to create a print ad campaign, to run in Elle, promoting a new Chi touch-screen hairdryer.

Teresa allowed Lisa to outsmart her in negotiating models for the task, put her tail in between her legs and walked away.

I waited and waited and waited for Teresa to defend herself and get nasty with loud-mouth Lisa Lampanelli – but it never happened.

Project Manager Teresa’s lack of negotiating skills and her poor presentation got her fired and rightfully so!

As the remaining four got cozy and ready to celebrate in their suite, the Trump asked all four remaining competitors to return the boardroom.

The day wasn’t over!  Each contestant had to meet with last season’s winner John Rich and runner-up Marlee Matlin to impress and prove why they deserved to be the next “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Rich and Matlin would give their recommendations to Trump who would in turn, fire two more!

Who was fired?

Drum roll please… loud-mouth Lampanelli got fired!

Her “uncontrollable emotions” – and bad attitude I’m sure – caused the Don to boot her out.

The other eliminated contestant will be revealed at the start of the next episode.  Who will it be?  I think it’ll be Arsenio and Clay and Aubrey will go head to head.

Did they get it right?  Who should be fired next?

Who do you want see make the final two?
