I think Annie should have won. She has the best overall record & she raised the most money based on assertiveness, creativity and management. That's what it takes to be an apprentice. Joan was a sore player & she should not have been rewarded. Did Donald choose correctly - NO.

I never lost so much respect for JR then for her actions during this season's apprentice. She was so arrogant and holier then though. She walked around like she was bettre then everyone else and should be immune from getting dirty like everyone else in the show had to. She thinks that she is better then AD just because Annie plays poker professionally. I've got news for JR, she needs to step into the real world and realize poker is main stream and that everyone from college students to physicisits play the game. It's not 1982 anymore and other then impressing midwest hausfraus with her disgustingly horrible jewelry its over for her.

She won the celebrity apprentice because DT was afraid if he didn't choose her, she'd go off on him and the show. They both know the same folks in NYC and he didn't want to have to compete with her for any loyalties. lets just say, it was easier to not choose Annie. From what I could tell the only reason she was choosen is because she took her geritol. A 75 y/o with spunk? Take some b-12 and an instant energy drink and you're all set. spunk in a bottle.

AD was robbed.

Joan Rivers is a vile, egotistical has been, who should have been fired way before the finale. I wasn't that fond of Duke either, but she showed much class by not decking that wind bag when her insults first began.

Joan only won because she and Trump are friends. I stopped watching after the first few episodes. this show is just another way for has been celebs to get their faces on TV. It's also another way for Trump to be able to say "look how rich I am". Who cares, he is such a bragger, but notice he never mentions his numerous bankruptcies and chapter 11's.

Rivers is a no class phony.What a mouth on her with her spoiled daughter. The TV audience viewed it much differently than the stacked studio audience. Trump didn't do himself any favors in selecting Rivers, looks like the deck was stacked against you Annie and you got trumped.

When Rivers quit and walked out the first time, she should have never been allowed back. Leaders do not quit on their teams. It was also a strategic advantage in having her daughter on the show.

When Annie said Joan has to die, it gave me the chills. Annie is a cold blooded individual.

Annie is also a control freak and not a very nice person (I'm putting it nicely so it won't get deleted on this post).

Joan well, I was very impressed by her good business judgement. I never knew she was a good businesswoman. That being said, I agree that she is stuck up and looks down on others like she's the Greek Goddess Hera sitting on top of Mount Olympus.

I personally feel that it's due to her upbringing. She came from wealth (her father was a physician) and she attained her own wealth. She was probably spoiled rotten and now she's done the same thing to her own daughter. What a shame. Is that why Johnny Carson fired her from the Tonight Show years ago?

I remember when her husband Edgar was found dead. All of the reports on t.v. and in the newspapers said that she came home to find that he'd hung himself in their home. The story was told over and over again and even Joan herself spoke on t.v. about how she came home and found that Edgar had hung himself. Now go look on the computer websites for this story and lo and behold the story has changed. Instead of Edgar hanging himself in LA, now it says that he O.D.'d on a bunch of pills in a Pennsylvania hotel room. Something's not right with this story. What gives?

The only reason I'm glad that Joan won, is that I think her charity deserved to win. What they are doing is absolutely terrific!

I'm glad that she picked a charity that helps U.S. citizens. Charity begins at home.

I cant believe all you people wanted Anne Duke to win. I thought Joan was awesome. She was so funny, she kept the show intersting and she is not a back stabber, if she did not like you - she told you so, as Clint Blank can attest to! Donald Trump cave in to the aduience?? I don't think Trump really gives a crap what the audience thinks, he does what he wants. He certainly did not get where he is by doing what others wanted him to do - gimme a break. Great seaon! Great Winner! Grest host!

Maybe Fishface can do his comb-over in such a way that part of it will cover Rivers' bizarre face.

Sheesh, I got the same angry feeling in my gut when Joan was carrying on, like when I was a 10 year old watching TV wrestling.

Hmmm didn't the Donald appear on a couple of wrestling shows? Guess there there are a LOT
of simularities!

Only thing sadder than the networks putting on this manipulative garbage is that fact that so
many people (ok, myself included) get sucked into watching this tripe...
