I love this show.
I am fine with him firing Brett. When it became clear that he had the biggest target on his back, I was not interested in seeing that played out every week. It would become, "how can we make Brett fail."
Trace, settle down. Piers is no threat to your ego. Just play the game. Had his team lost, no one was able to be a hard worker to compensate for lack of rich friends. That is a huge flaw in this show. I don't think that should be a factor in who stays and who goes.
Brande is afraid of Omarosa! She didn't want to risk working with her having brought her into the board room. And he would have kept Omorosa over Brande, for sure.
Omorosa was set to marry Michael Clark Duncan (Green Mile) this past January. He died in July.
