All I know is that while I've never been a huge fan of Star's, her behavior on the Apprentice makes me applaud that she was able to make herself palatable at all while she was on The View. While she is most definitely not a nice person, I can see that she is very good at her job.
As far as Dionne Warwick, she's something too! I'm hoping someone puts her in her place. I'd actually love to see a confrontation between Star and Dionne!!
I thought it was absolutely ridiculous when Star wanted her name singled out on the book, and then Dionne came and said that she wanted a "Conceived By" tagline...too funny. Truly funny how some people can become so full of themselves!
I was a little disappointed that all the other women remained so silent (except Marlee). They didn't necessarily have to say that Lisa Rinna did a good job, but at least say that she was bullied by Star and Dionne.
I also would have brought up how Star chose the font...no one seemed to pin that one on her. She only brought it up when she was complaining how she "had to pick the font, too!"
Celebrity Apprentice was certainly controversial and so are tonight's postings. Some things were made painfully obvious on this episode. I really had no opinion of Dionne Warwick or Star Jones prior to this show but I sure do now.
Star Jones career pick as a lawyer was the perfect choice for her. She was able to argue either side whenever it was necessary. Even though she needed the world to know that she "wrote" the book, (revealing a pathetic insecurity) it wasn't her fault that it didn't win but rather Lisa's because she wasn't a good manager. It also wasn't her fault that they lost because Lisa couldn't manage so Starr had to take control so often. Star could turn it anyway she needed to turn it. Reminds me of Trump and his reasons for firing anyone.
As to her lying about having weight loss surgery, it would be nice if it was private but she's not a private person. When you knowingly put yourself into the public's eye, everything you do becomes public fodder. You get the good with the bad. You're famous but you have no privacy. She is smart enough to know that and decided to lie anyway. Not only did she lie about the surgery, she embellished everything with stories of other reasons why she lost weight. Poor decision on her part. It was going to come out in time.
I have no problem with her decision to have the surgery but it can't be denied that she put her life and health in danger by gaining the weight and also again by her method of losing the weight. So I'm with holding my applause for her achievements in that department.
Star has a lot going for her but she proved on CA that she possesses a huge ego, is extremely manipulative as she manuevered Lisa into a corner and she just didn't have the tools to deal with it. Star played the better game.
Lisa was given a million chances to fight and save herself but she just couldn't step up and do it. Trump often gives these people an opening to step up and fight but Lisa blew it. She'd do better running for Miss Congeniality, not the Apprentice.
Dionne Warwick behaved horribly. I'm surprised anyone could breathe in the boardroom with the size of Star's and Dionne's egos, taking up all the space. They even overshadowed Trump's ego which I thought was impossible.
If nothing else, we do get an extremely good look at these people and what they are really all about.
They said that one of the reasons the women lost was because the theme of the book was "be yourself" and not age appropriate for 4-5 year olds. Wasn't the theme of the men's group the exact same thing??
All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
Is it a requirement that if you are a Trump son that you have to wear your hair slicked back? I thought it was bad when Don Jr wore it that way, but now Eric too? Seriously guys, you are not old men- go to a stylist and actually have a haircut more becoming of your age.
Also can someone fill me in on who Nene Leakes is- I've never heard of her.
NeNe Leaks is a cast member on Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is probaably one of the most famous - or infamous - of the wives from the entire franchsie.

It appears that Star and and Ne ne have been snapping at each other! 'Celebrity Apprentice's' Star Jones responds to NeNe Leakes: 'We're not on the same level' - From Inside the Box - Zap2it
