    I don't see it that way at all. I am the assistant to a woman who is the country's premier authority on a particular matter and is a highly respected partner with our firm, as well as a member/Chair of numerous Boards. She freely acknowledges that she couldn't do her job without me (and this is reflected in my annual reviews) because I manage her time, I get her back on track, I nag her to get stuff done when nagging is required. Vision and a creative mind are of far greater value than the ability to follow a schedule given that you can hire any reasonably bright retentive grunt to take care of the time management aspect of any particular project.

    Again that is your opinion. IMO Bret is NOT incompetent or he wouldn't have gotten so far. Is there a reason you don't like him? You seem to rag on him all the time.......

Was Curtis really the best host they could get? Being liked by Trump will get you a long way. Look how far it got Cyndi. I believe Trump likes Bret a lot. Could he fire Bret after all the recent complications Bret has had? He's totally incompetent but he's a great schmoozer and he might just win it all because of that.

    Bunny, Keepitreal and Jucamer, it's CNBC that shows the repeats on Friday nights into Saturday morning. They show 2 airings. I think it's 8-10 PM Fri. and 12-2 AM Sat. EST but I'll double check when I get home.

    I think Bret will win and he deserves to. I gave up watching this show seasons ago because it got so repetitive and boring but when Bret had his medical incident I was looking over posts in here and decided to watch to see why so many people were so impressed with him and you guys were totally right. He adds tremendous creativity to everything he does rather than cranking out the same old rote predictable things. And, ideally, this is a show about 'hiring' the most talented person and hiring is about character assessment as well as 'task' accomplishments and how Bret has overcome adversity recently strongly speaks to his character and Trump knows that -- as well as how to milk Bret's adversity for his own advantage, unfortunately.

    So Holly will likely do a boring, predictable brand and marketing campaign for her Snapple product and Bret will do something unique and highly creative and Trump will 'hire' him and also get an opportunity to speak to Bret's character and what he has overcome medically which is directly related to his charity.

    Holly also has a management style that really shouldn't be rewarded. True leaders lead through collaboration, consensus and by example not through being domineering toward others. I don't think she's a bad person, she just really seems to think you need to control everything to accomplish anything which isn't the case -- in fact it can squeeze the life out of things and be highly demoralizing to those around you that are trying to work with you. I also can see where that comes from, in her, though, given her son's autism. She has no control over that so she's overcompensating and trying to over-control the things that she does have some control over. Hopefully she'll see that and will make the necessary adjustments because her heart is in the right place in terms of her commitment to overcoming autism.

    Can you imagine Bret winning, and his Snapple Tea going on the stands, I think between how endearing Bret is, and the medical issues, surrounding him, his kindness, and his struggles to maintain daily living with diabetes. I think it would be one of the most popular items that Snapple could market. I mean lets face it, Bret is someone that everyone seems to love.

    Yes he is a great guy - always loved his fans (and I hope that is not why he is touring again so soon! ) Anyway - I'm so glad he was asked to be on this show. It showed that he is not just a head banging rock and roller. He is loveable and he does have a brain!

    Snapple now has both new flavors on the shelves. "Two great new flavors inspired by The Celebrity Apprentice finalists."
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    I just wanted to tell everyone that Celebrity Apprentice is airing right now on CNBC from 8-10 PM EST and then will repeat again Saturday morning from 12-2 AM.

    I even have my boyfriend watching now - and he never watches reality TV - but he's caught up now in Bret's saga, too. We hope he'll take it easy and will be ok.

    I missed it on Sunday and am watching it now too. Did Sharon have a snoot full or what????

    Access Hollywood said tonight that Bret is still going to the finale. I don't think it's a good idea, but he's a stubborn one....

    Glad you caught it, jucamer. (Now don't forget that we have to watch Erin and Maks on Larry King. That aired on CNN from 9-10 PM EST but they'll repeat it at Midnight! So many FoRT favorites, such little time! )

    I hope Bret doesn't come to NYC either. I think he's AZ based rather than CA but it's still too far. Stay home and rest, Bret! :nono
