Donald Trump fired Chloe because she was acting responsibly and dealing with her DUI issues? I guess only former Miss USA Tara Conner deserves a 2nd chance. If only Chloe had been blond, was able to become teary-eyed at the drop of a hat, and had big old Mr. Trump come to her rescue.
Apparently he thinks the people with DUI's are reprehensible and should go on paying for their mistakes forever. I happen to think adultry, filing for bancruptcy on a regular basis, and bad hairstyles are all reprehensible and undeserving of a second chance.

I think that Annie Duke was robbed. Joan Rivers is a spitefull, vendictive, b-word, that is worse than Hitlers a-hole. She should not have won. Annie played a good game, and it just goes to show you that people like Joan Rivers will do anything and say anything to win. And just as last season the absolute worst person was picked as the winner. Annie Duke is better off not being the Celebrity Apprentice winner because she is too nice and obviously the biggest losers, spitefull, mean, dorogatory, vendictive people win this game. I will never watch it again if that is what it is all about.

Contrary to Trish, I believe the right person won the Celebrity Apprentice. What I was disappointed with, in the finale, was a no-show by the Donald Trump look-alike. I bet that was taken out in editing. Trump is such a turd.

I thik that Annie was robbed - she played an awesome game, brought in A LOT of money, and put up with the abuse from Joan Rivers (which Joan was obviously doing for show ratings for her longtime friend Donald Trump). The whole thing was a setup.

As far as I'm concerned both their charities sucked. All that nastiness for that? If it benefited white women in the usa, I'd be more excited.

And why are all those men from Brooklyn transvestites? They all sound like they're from the same neighborhood!

The first night I watched this show I said that there is going to be problems once Joan or Melissa get fired.

It was a mistake to have Joan Rivers and Melissa Rivers on this show together. Of course Joan is going to defend her daughter that is what Mom's do.

Annie and Brande wen't after Melissa, because they were smart. Melissa was clearly a weaker player, and that is the idea of the game once you are in the board room, to save yourself and move on. Joan can not look at that objectively because her daughter was involved. I think Joan clearly lied in the Board room the video shows that she was responsible for the event coordinator bailing.

Trump picked her because they are friends. Annie deserved to win.

What this article failed to mention was that Trump's sister-in-law, Blaire trump, is on the board of directors for Gods Love We Deliver, which is the charity that Joan Rivers was playing for.

I happened to watch quite a few of these shows. I am (was) a fan of both Joan Rivers and Annie Duke. However, BOTH of them were out of line on numerous occassions. Joan took too many things personaland was too emotional. Most of Annies teammates every week gave her looks like they were going to kill her on many occassions. She took credit from many of them and was constantly saying, "Well I did this..... and I did that...... I I I. More people are fired from their jobs due to their poor attitude than their work performance. While I do not think Joan should have won, either should have Annie. The people fired for the two week before this finale are the ones who truly got screwed. Donald only made them the final two because he knew they hated each other and wanted to make "good" TV. Which it wasn't. Oh, and can someone tell Andrew Dice Clay he is CLUELESS on what to say and what not to say. He is an ugly clown.

This show was about raising money for charity. Joan had the best charity. Annie raised enough money for people from other countries. Why in the world would you add another 250,000 to the 500,000 that already went to Annie's charity, when so many Americans are suffering. That's why the British guy went with Joan. Joan loved her charity, Annie picked one out of a hat.

Joan is a vindictive shrew.
No matter how many face lifts or plastic surgery she has she wont look 1/2 as good as the model chick.
And as far as saying Annie's money is mafia money...pffft

The perfect comeback to Joan for either would've been, "No wonder your husband committed suicide, he was desperate to escape you"
