Previously on The Celebrity Apprentice, after four tasks...
-Hot dogs for charity!
-All right, cut. We got it.
We pulled it out of the bag. It's a knockout.
-..the men of Hydra were undefeated.
Even moving Gene Simmons to Empresario didn't help the women's team.
Hydra, you win. Gene, you're fired.
Then, last week, with Tito away at a fight...
Empresario, you have one last chance.
The teams were tasked with designing an awareness campaign for Crocs.
-Wear them. Share them.
-Piers hatched a plan to spy on the women...
Vinny, I have an idea for you. You are my Luca Brasi.
-..by faking an argument with Vinny and firing him.
-Get out of here!
-I'm tired of your
Get out! Get out.
-That arrogant English bastard just chased me out of the
-Feeling sorry for Vinny...
-Work for us.
..the women took the bait and accepted him as a new team member.
We have to have a buzz statement. SolesUnited. Share the love.
-Share the love.
-Share the love.
-As Vinny fulfilled his spy duties...
-Share the love.
-Share the love.
-That's what they're doing.
-Stephen had a problem with the plan...
-It's not right.
-..while Vinny had a crisis of his own.
I started to say to myself, "Why am I doing this?"
Piers made a decision to make me be a rat. But it's over. I flipped.
-They know everything.
-And the women took action.
-Put Vinny on the phone.
-We no longer need your services.
-In the boardroom, Vinny revealed the truth.
-I did want the women to win.
-And Piers' attempted sabotage backfired, putting him at risk.
Empresario, they picked you as the winner, so congratulations.
With the men's first loss,
Piers waged a personal attack on Stephen's character...
This is a guy who is a rank hypocrite.
-It's not the truth, Mr Trump.
-..and Stephen took it to heart.
I'd rather have less success and a better name than anything else.
But it was Vinny who had had enough.
Mr Trump, I'm going to end this up right now. Let's just let me resign.
I accept your resignation.
-This is different.
-So, shoe's on the other foot.
-Piers, we know how much you like to drink, so help yourself to the liquor.
-I'm fine, actually.
Now, Lennox, I'm glad to know that you're just as dirty
as the rest of your team-mates.
He's aligned himself with the likes of you.
-We don't take moral lectures from you!
-That takes him down a level.
-You're a celebrity wannabe.
-At least he's done something.
-You're a never-been, so that's the worst.
-You don't know anything about me.
I edited two of the world's biggest newspapers for 12 years.
Never-was. The worst offence of them all.
I just think Omarosa's ego writes cheques her body can't cash.
The girl's a loser, you know? She lost the first season of Apprentice.
'She's renowned around America as a disgusting little wastrel.
'She's just a pointless waste of space.'
-Piers, don't start. You're in
-Now you "work at the White House".
-You're in my war room.
-As what? A cleaner?
-Piers, welcome to our war room.
I've got better things to do than this. Good luck, girls. Well done.
-Piers, I can't work with you.
-This is about you not wanting the word "hypocrite" in the show, right?
It's ridiculous, mate. Pathetic. Just to let you know, guys, I think Mr Baldwin's resigning as well.
-What? Why is he resigning?
-Oh, because I called him a hypocrite.
-He said he had nothing to do with it.
-I said, "You start that game in there, I'll call you a hypocrite."
Now he wants to leave the show.
I can't work with Piers.
I was impacted by what happened in the boardroom,
so it's best that I sit down and have a meeting with Mr Trump to discuss it.
Mr Trump, I have Stephen Baldwin to see you.
Let him come in.
Come in, Stephen. Sit down right here, please.
So, what's going on?
At this point, working with Piers is just not a possibility.
-Don't tell me you want to quit.
-Well, if I may, respectfully, sir.
-Don't go home a loser. I don't care.
It doesn't affect me. It affects you.
I was resigning for the same reasons as Vinny.
No, no. Vinny didn't resign for the same reason.
-Whether you like it or not, Vinny got beaten up by Piers.
-But, Mr Trump...
And I've been beaten up by Piers.
Then go to the other side and beat him.
I could put you on Empresario, if you think it's important.
I think that's a lot better. Then you can kick his ass.
-You ever hear, "Think big, kick ass," right?
-You like that?
-I can do that in a second.
-I like it, too.
-I'll put you on the other side.
-OK. See you tomorrow.
-Thank you. Go get 'em!
-I just had to have a meeting with Mr Trump.
I told Mr Trump I no longer wanted to continue working with Piers.
The resolve that Mr Trump has suggested is that I become
a member of Empresario, which I have accepted.
'Stephen was moved to Empresario,'
and I did not really agree with that decision.
I didn't think that was very fair to the rest of us.
If I'm on your team and you tell me to make you coffee and shut up, I'm more than happy to do that.
-I don't care.
-This is pathetic.
-That is mad.
-Pathetic, mate. Absolutely pathetic.
-That's mental, man. That's mental.
People aren't going to fall for this, Mr Baldwin.
I was so disappointed to hear that, coming from a man.
He wants to move to the girls' team to make coffee? I didn't have respect for him for that.
If it falls to me and you, mate, we can win this on our own. Don't worry about it.
Stephen Baldwin trying to resign from the show
and then squirm his way back into the ladies' team? Pitiful.
In one fell swoop, he's told Donald Trump two things -
he's a quitter who tried to resign, and he's a disloyal little rat.
So, I have a previous engagement.
I actually will not be involved in the next task.
-I have to speak at a church.
-Stephen, are you kidding me?
-Let me finish, please.
-No, I won't. You're in our war room now.
We get forced to take you on our team. You have all of this drama with your team, and you're telling me
on the first day of your new job, you won't even be there?
-Tito, they missed you.
You left, your team lost, and you wouldn't believe what happened.
You know Vinny quit, and everybody was shocked to see it.
And he thought Piers was the absolute worst.
We have a little problem.
Stephen is not with us this morning.
He will come back. But I've decided to put him on the ladies' team.
-Now, what do you think of that?
-Mr Trump, we respectfully decline your offer
to send Stephen over to our team.
All right. I'm the boss. Stephen is going to be on Empresario. That's it.
OK. As you can see, Donald and one of my most trusted associates,
George Ross, will be my eyes and ears.
They'll be watching your every move.
Vera Wang is a friend of mine.
She's also one of this country's - and in fact the world's - great designers.
Bob Sherman is the president of Serta. They make mattresses.
Vera Wang designed a Serta mattress.
Vera, what is the task?
The task today is to create a living window featuring my mattresses,
and you'll be judged by myself and Bob on three things -
creativity, brand imaging, and entertainment value.
When she said we have to create a living window
to promote Vera Wang anything,
I immediately thought, "Well, we are completely screwed".
-Vera, you did that so well.
I should have had another cocktail.
OK, everybody understands? Everybody knows what you're doing?
20,000 goes to the Project Manager of the winning team
for their favourite charity.
Go downstairs to the war room. Pick your Project Managers. Go. Good luck.
Ladies, are you all opposed to me serving as PM on this project?
-Not at all.
-Go for it.
'The task this week is to create a living window display,
'and so I decided to step up as Project Manager.
'And this was my opportunity to raise some cash for my charity,
It's a programme for at-risk youth
who really need someone to believe in them.
Carol will be Creative Director. She'll also manage talent - this is your area more than anyone.
-You're going to do marketing as well as accounting.
-Marilu, you're so great dealing with construction crews and managing it. That's where I want to go.
I just had a brilliant, brilliant idea.
The perfect marriage. Serta and Vera Wang.
We utilise her trademark - wedding gowns, and that's what drives her.
Vera Wang, of course, is obviously about weddings and bridalwear.
'So, we decided on a theme - the perfect marriage.'
-I would love you in a wedding dress.
-Oh, my gosh.
-Let's do that.
-We can also use Stephen.
At first, I was confused about Stephen moving over to our team.
'Once the decision was taken out of our hands,'
we realised Mr Trump didn't want to lose Stephen, so then we accepted him.
-He could carry you in or something?
-But she's taller than he is.
-But that's OK. He'll be laying down.
No creative ideas yet until we find out all the information we can.
I'm Project Manager, and my charity is the Muhammad Ali Center.
It's really close to Muhammad Ali.
He's done so much for people around the world, and this charity means so much to him.
Ah, Vera Wang. What has she done in the past?
Her company was built around bridal stuff.
But she has now branched out beyond the core bridal,
-so we need to get out of her whether she sees it as a bridal thing.
-Or is this a more general thing?
None of us really know much about Vera Wang.
None of us are particularly in touch with our romantic, sensitive,
feminine sides, particularly not Tito Ortiz and Lennox Lewis, whose idea of sensitivity
is beating the hell out of Mike Tyson on a quiet Monday.
You know, I think we need to think feminine here, guys,
which is not going to be easy for us.
-How are you?
-Good to see you.
'Our task is to prepare a living window for Vera Wang and Serta,'
so we're selling the mattress that's been designed by Vera Wang.
A really interesting challenge, actually.
In terms of this particular challenge, should we be really thinking bridal here?
Certainly, my brand has grown to be symbolic of much more than only bridal.
Very interested by the fusion of Serta with Vera Wang.
The majority of the people that buy a mattress are women, and what it really affords us to do
is to offer an outstanding product but then add Vera's name to it,
-which is recognised for comfort and style.
-And romance. I always have to throw that in.
-What do you do for entertainment?
-I love watching TV.
I love reading. I spend most of my free time on my bed.
'In listening to Vera Wang and listening to Bob,'
we all got the vision that she wanted to do something different.
Do you have any ideas?
Just a few things I wrote down that she said "romance"
and then Serta's slogan, "The world's best mattress." So, I'm thinking...
"The world's greatest romance deserves the world's best mattress."
"Vera Wang by Serta."
-I like that.
-One of the great romances in history where the woman was the strong one,
Cleopatra, Mark Antony.
-I love it.
-I love it, too.
Trace Adkins, who's come up with all the great ideas, actually, for us.
He said, "Look, this is about romance. We should go back in time."
-'And I really like it. Good old Trace again.'
-I like it.
-I like that.
-Hi. Hi. How are you guys?
We're very interested in utilising one of your wedding dresses.
-Well, I'd love that.
-But you have lingerie as well.
-I have lingerie.
-And we want to tap in to all of these wonderful things.
In order of importance - brand messaging, creativity,
and entertainment, how would you order those three?
I would say the most important thing is always creativity,
because without creativity and thinking out of the box,
there's no way to attract clients.
-We are so looking forward to this.
-We really are.
Thank you so much.
Yeah, that's the figure.
-This is the size that you gave me. 5'x3'.
-Where's the skirt?
You see, for this part of it, anybody that wants to say something,
-just go like that.
-Am I allowed to say something to attract your attention to my hand?
-Yes, you are.
-OK. What do I say?
-Say, "Permission to speak."
-Permission to speak, Project Manager.
-Are you going to keep this up?
-It sounds ridiculous.
-No, it doesn't. It's working.
-It's working for us.
-Well, it's working for you.
-Yes, it is.
'Lennox, having been a very good fun, cheeky chappy,
'smart guy who'd been everyone's buddy,'
the moment he became Project Manager, turned into a monster.
-What else do you have in the room, just to be curious?
-Uh, nothing, just that.
-Are we going to have a TV or not?
-I just want to vote on this.
-Well, no. I've got a better idea.
-Permission to speak?
-You're the Project Manager.
-You've heard all the arguments.
So, what I want to do is have a vote.
-What do you say, Tito?
-Whether we use modern stuff or not.
-Whether we use modern stuff or not.
-Then we should have the TV.
OK, I'm having a vote. Who wants TV? Put up their hands.
-Are you going to run everything by a vote?
-Yes, because we're a team.
-That's not leadership. That's just having a vote on everything.
-There's no point in having a bunch of votes.
-Do you want a TV in there?
-Can I clarify something?
-No, you can't.
-Permission to speak.
-Can we have a vote whether I can speak?
-Tito, what are you saying? TV, yes, or no?
-Permission to speak?
-Don't want to hear from you.
-Right, but when can I speak again?
-When you have something to add.
-I don't like what you're doing.
-Uh, uh, uh, uh!
Don't want to hear anything. Talk to the hand.
'Piers kind of felt like he's in school because he's not used to holding up his hand any more.
'He's just used to blurting out.'
So, anybody that wants to argue with me has to talk to the hand.
You have to make a call about whether you like it stencilled on.
-Or do you want to vote on that?
-I actually want to vote on that, yes.
'Lennox Lewis has put it to a vote in which he won't participate.'
When it comes to any decision, he goes, "I want a vote."
-Would you like to start the voting?
-Yes, I would.
-What would you like?
-I would like to hear from Trace.
-What do you think we should do?
We'll have a curtain here
-if possible. We're not sure if we need it or not.
If we needed something to close or open.
-And there's a wall here - the same thing on that side.
-What about a curtain here, and what about the hook?
I don't know about windows. Do you have to have this? Does it have to be a box, a ceiling?
Marilu goes off to do construction, which she's done on multiple tasks,
and she is very scattered, and she's very all over the place.
What I want to do is hang... I want a white wall,
but I want the curtains a little bit in front
so that if we had lighting that could be...
-..the walls will be sitting on top of this platform.
OK, is there any way to...
not have them sit on top of this platform, but be recessed, like...
'Marilu was just unable to communicate clearly what we were trying to do.
'We're not progressing. We don't even have our construction materials yet.'
I'm a bit nervous right now.
Are you going to be able to put walls up on the ends for us?
-We can have walls here, either side, with an entrance door?
'The task is actually setting up a living window display for Vera Wang
'by Serta, and Cleopatra was a big thing for us'
because that's the ultimate romance in history.
We have to start staging.
It'd be nice to have Stephen Baldwin. Is he coming?
He said he'd be here at six o'clock.
'Everybody is working their fingers to the bone,'
and the only person that's missing on my team is Stephen Baldwin.
-This is the wedding situation half.
-And this is the threshold.
This is the front of the window. The bride and groom will come in,
they're very excited, he carries her over the threshold...
She looks at him. He scoops her up.
She turns around like this. Then he, like, blindfolds her.
She's stepped out of her gown, and she has the little underwear on.
-This is, like, burlesque.
This is a little edgy for me.
My biggest concerns are keeping Marilu intact,
not going too big with the vignette or with the performances,
keeping it simple and nailing home the point.
Let's stay on the surface of wedding and romance,
-but I don't want to kill your creativity.
-No, no, no. I'm... That's OK.
-It was a creative team decision.
-We're trying to figure out how to do a reveal of this bed.
Please, for the rest of the night, I cannot take...
If you saw it from my view, you'd know.
'I love Marilu, but she's just all over the place.'
That energy, I have to hone in.
I think we have to figure out who's just in charge of set-dressing this puppy.
-And, frankly, I don't care if Marilu does the set-dressing.
'Nely was a former head of Telemundo. I'm expecting her'
to be more informative.
'On my team, I trust Omarosa.'
I know that sounds very strange, but I do.
'When someone is very passionate in their vision,'
they inspire you to follow them.
'Omarosa is the kind of Project Manager that's covering her ass.'
You have to watch your back every second with her,
cos you can get stabbed.
'Not just your back - She'll get you from the front, the side,'
through the temples, whichever way she wants.
Let's go. What do we need in the morning?
-No other food?
-No other food?
-Hang on. We haven't decided yet.
-You've already had one vote on it.
'Trace, Tito, and I'
have certainly picked up on the fact that the only person so far
who's had no ideas
is the dictatorial Project Manager,
so we've all begun to work out what he's doing.
-Have you taken responsibility of anything yet?
I've taken responsibility. My decision is our votes.
You haven't made one decision all day.
-Hang on, hang on, hang on.
-You haven't, mate.
Lennox has no clear vision of what he needs to do.
'We just laughed about it all day long. 'We thought it was funny.'
All you've done is made sure we're all responsible for everything.
-Why are you trying to divide the team?
-No, I'm not. You're the one causing friction.
Are you making trouble?
-Are you sure?
-As usual, you're asking me a question
which puts me into some form of responsibility, right?
We've all worked out your game. It's very clever. It doesn't mean we have to accept it.
-Now you're starting to sound like Gene Simmons. It ain't workin'.
Exactly, and he just broke wind. Did you hear that?
-Lennox, man! Oh, man!
You know what? That just about sums it up.
Your Project Managership stinks!
Just flown in. My first official time together with Empresario.
'I wasn't able to make the first half of the task because I had to speak at a church.'
So, this is what we did.
Our idea was the perfect marriage.
Marketing-wise, I want to share something with you guys -
"Together it's new".
That's something that we could put up behind the bed on the wall that's, like, some phrase.
'I had a really hard time with Stephen coming back and throwing out ideas.
'He wanted to change the whole vibe.'
It's like, "I have a better idea than you guys,
"I'm here, and tough".
I'm just trying to, like, take in everything you've done and then...
pepper it with a little Stevie B.
I was like, "Stevie B? Dude...! Get out of here".
We've got half an hour, son.
-Hey, do you know where a fruit store is?
-Big house over there, two blocks.
Lennox! 'It comes down to our last hour and a half.'
Me and Lennox got to go get champagne, fruit.
We got to buy pillows and fabric.
Thanks, man. Appreciate it. Have a good day.
'By the time we got back, we got the outfits that the actors will be wearing
'and making sure the models are looking great, hopefully we're doing the right things'.
Guys, we have five minutes.
I can't say that Team Hydra is missing anything. I think they're behind schedule.
Maybe that will hurt them because they won't be able to do the finishing touches.
-All the flowers?
-I can split them apart.
Split them into two vases.
-Guys, we have five minutes.
-Scissors, I need scissors.
I need a staple gun.
'We're guys. When it comes to design and that finicky stuff, women are great at that.
'So, I was concerned a bit, but, you know,'
if we go overboard, it's good.
At least we're better overboard than underboard.
We're going to start staging.
It's OK. No. No. Leave it there.
OK, let's do last looks on the stage. Let me see the actresses. Hair and make-up!
Can I get a last look at the girls? Ladies and gentlemen, we have five minutes to showtime.
-Move it back. Ah, perfect! Perfect!
-I don't want a hair out of place.
-Groom is ready.
-Listen up! Marilu is directing.
I want you to listen to Marilu.
The rest of this team, have fun! Everybody's having so much fun! Oh, it's great!
Oh, look at this!
A living tableau!
The flurry of activity - throw those petals in the air! Ohh!
Here comes my friend! My best friend just got married!
-Look at these girls. They're so fabulous.
-That dress, I've got to have it.
This is so unbelievable. I'm in awe.
Look at them. Are they gorgeous, or what?
It's so amazing. Bravo!
-Thank you, Vera. Thank you.
-Thank you, guys.
'Our window is exactly what she wanted.'
I've won this task, hands down. I'm going to TKO Lennox Lewis.
-Vera. How are you?
-Good morning. How are you?
Good to see you. Bob, how are you?
We decided to come up with a slogan for you -
"The world's great romances deserve the world's best mattresses".
-That is fantastic!
-To illustrate that, what greater romance
-than Cleopatra and Mark Anthony?
-Oh, God, look at her.
-And down here, we could not resist calling you the Empress of Elegance.
-I love that.
Obviously, the mattress is very prominent. And then we created Cleopatra's lair.
-Although it's all very period, there's a plasma TV.
-I know. I just saw that.
There's the laptop. There's a mobile phone. There's a camera.
So, they're leading the modern life,
and yet it's Cleopatra and Mark Anthony.
They are one of the world's great pair of romantics.
-Love "The world's great romances".
Makes you look at a bed in more than one way.
-This is beautiful and totally unexpected. Great.
-Thank you very much.
'We could tell, especially on Vera's face,'
she was ecstatic about it. Bob loved it,
'and that gave me a good feeling.'
-One, two, three - Hydra!
-All right, baby.
Stephen, how did you find working with these very, very tough, smart, attractive women?
Well, Mr Trump, it was a blessing for me.
I just wanted to be in an environment that I thought would be
-conducive and productive, and it was beyond that.
-Better than Piers?
Oh, there's no comparison.
What did you think of the team without Stephen?
Great. We had a winning mentality. We got over the fact that both the New York quitters had left us,
and we were left with people who wanted to win.
Piers is just not really socially adept to work with people who are not like him.
He doesn't have tolerance, so he goes for very personal...
-But he is very smart.
For four ugly blocks to take on some glamorous women and Omarosa in a challenge is not easy.
And as far as I'm concerned, Mr Trump, this guy is a winner. This guy is a winner.
He knows he's being fired, so he's trying to redeem himself.
You're right about the guys,
so let's leave it at that.
How was Lennox as a Project Manager, Trace?
He let everybody speak their piece and voice their opinions
and come up with ideas, albeit maybe in a strange kind of way.
-Well, he wanted everybody to raise their hand, you know, before...
Piers, how did you feel about that?
I felt he was treating me like a little child.
He needs it because he's always talking over somebody
or he interrupts people.
I think it could be good leadership, tough leadership. Tough guy.
-Do you think you won?
-We are pretty confident, actually.
We asked one specific question of Vera Wang -
"What is your intention now, moving forward?"
And they made it very clear to us that, actually,
they were moving away from bridal stuff into a much wider range
to appeal to all women based on romance.
Nely, what did you think of Omarosa as a leader?
I think Omarosa's a rock star,
and I think as a team we really gel well together.
-We finally have our mojo.
-Don, what did you think? You went around. What did you think?
The women definitely went with a more conservative approach.
They played it safe going with the wedding motif, but, overall, they work well as a team.
-George, what did you think?
-Well, I saw primarily the men, and as soon as I saw the idea,
I thought it was extremely creative. They were going at a timeless romance,
Cleopatra and Mark Anthony.
As far as creativity and as far as entertainment value,
I thought it was great.
-But it wasn't as beautiful.
-No, it wasn't, but it certainly was eye-catching.
Vera really liked what both of you did.
She really understood what you both did.
And it was very different - very, very different.
But when we added Vera to the Serta executive...
..the winner is Hydra.
You've got to be kidding me.
Lennox, you'll be getting 20,000 for your favourite charity. What is that going to be?
The Muhammad Ali Center.
I love Muhammad Ali.
OK. Go to the war room.
Can I just extend, on behalf of Hydra, my commiserations
to the other team
and to say to Omarosa...
well, bad luck. Better luck next time, yeah?
Tough guy. Tough guy.
No class at all.
-Whoo! Sweet, baby.
-Love it, baby.
ALL: One, two, three, Hydra!
Losing is not good.
So, Omarosa, the slaughter continues.
I just...I'm shocked.
-I'm absolutely shocked.
-They both thought you did a good job, but they really thought
-Hydra was fantastic.
-I thought you guys could have it wrapped,
being much more in the fashion world,
much more elegant, perhaps, than the men, and thinking that way.
We asked the same questions they asked about
"This is where you've come from.
"This is where you are. Where do you see yourself going?"
And I thought, pretty much, she was saying... You know, she was all about,
this is her bridal and this is where it came from...
But you're also dealing with the people from Serta, not just Vera.
Did you ask both of them, or did you only listen to Vera, because it's a partnership?
We even put the Serta sheep in the window.
But the Serta sheep in the window, I think you missed it. Vera is associated with marriage,
with marriage gowns.
What's creative about creating a marriage atmosphere?
-It's not creative.
-Right. Yeah. That's what I'm saying, baby.
Who decided on the concept?
Omarosa, when I met with you, you did say that it was your choice to go with the wedding concept.
-It was, and I did sign off on that.
-You get that now.
Thinking about it, it was so standard, so typical,
that maybe it's not that imaginative.
The focus was very simple. One was creativity, which had to be different than that,
and the other one was entertainment value. At this point,
I didn't see any entertainment value in yours.
Whereas I look at this point, I see a gladiator on a bed with Cleopatra.
You stop and say, "Wow, what is that?"
The other one, you don't, so it has two of the three factors.
The other one, brand acceptance, I think you got,
-but you missed two out of three.
-Stephen, what would you do if you were me?
I would base it on a task-by-task basis.
But the past always enters in, and no matter how good we do
and no matter how much we want to look at an individual task,
-the past will always enter my decisions.
-I thought the team was great.
I thought the team worked amazingly.
From the time I got there until the time we were finished, I think that
the person whose performance was the most questionable was Marilu.
-And why is that?
-Marilu comes out of theatre.
As a result, there's a lot of drama and energy, and she talks... And she's sometimes so...
I haven't seen that much with Marilu. I've heard about it, but I haven't seen it.
When she gets into the task, when she gets into the trenches, it is full speed. She's spitfire.
-But sometimes trying to communicate when she's in that mode is very difficult.
You have a very, very tough job,
because you're bringing back two people.
I'm sitting here, Mr Trump, not even believing I have to do that.
But I will tell you, before I have to make that decision,
that by default, I have to bring Stephen in.
He did not put in the whole day's work.
It's not about performance or whatever, cos I didn't have a chance
to measure his performance, because he came so late.
In this case, it was because of religion,
and that's, you know, neither here or there.
But he didn't have anything to do with the decision that ultimately made you lose.
You may be like our friend Gene, who kept on going.
And Nely was the beneficiary of that, in all fairness.
But, you know, Gene just didn't want to listen.
I think that bringing Stephen back is a mistake,
but it's also your decision.
Can we just skip all of us going out and just sit here
and stand united, because we worked hard as a unit?
Can we just stand and face our judgment together as opposed to just two?
I see you shaking your head, George.
No. All life is tough decisions. Somebody has to go. Somebody has to stay.
Who would you pick, Omarosa? Who would you pick to come back?
I need a moment, and I know I don't have much time,
-but I'm just asking for a moment.
-PIERS: Oh, shut up, you great actress.
Project leader's failed on two out of three counts.
Omarosa - no creativity, no entertainment. She's got to go!
OK. I know how to make a decision, Mr Trump.
Who are you bringing back?
I am bringing back Marilu...
-OK. Very good.
Then, Stephen and Carol, go back. Enjoy yourselves.
You three, get out also, please.
You'll come back in a little while. Somebody will be fired.
-Don, what do you think?
-I think it's a tough call.
-I liked what they were doing when we were there, but, ultimately, they lost.
-They did. George?
I think a good part of it is Nely. As a television producer, she should have been strong enough
to see that what they were producing is not what was wanted.
I did the best I could. I can honestly say I did the best I could.
So, ultimately, why did you decide on these two?
I just wasn't getting the creative feedback that
I needed from Nely on this task, and I was very surprised.
And I decided on Marilu because she was responsible for
a bit of the creatives, but mostly the vignettes and the performances.
But, moreover, she served as a weakness on our team,
in the sense that she was not able to clearly communicate her thoughts.
In terms of communication, I am considered a great communicator.
-I was in charge of construction...
-But Stephen didn't feel you communicated well,
and he didn't think of you as a great communicator. Why didn't he?
-Omarosa, why didn't he?
-She doesn't listen.
It's not necessarily what you're saying, but taking the time to listen when somebody's trying to...
-You're not the greatest listener in the world.
-I've learned lessons.
That's an interesting statement coming from her.
-Could be a classic!
-Definition of irony!
Vera Wang is associated with weddings,
and yet what you did here was not a departure from weddings. She wanted something creative.
How can you have perfect marriage with weddings as being creative?
I did turn to my team to guide me. And, as PM,
-I did not...
-Did Nely guide you? Did Marilu guide you?
I did not get a strong creative feedback from Nely.
We had... You know, we had these designers,
and we had this and we had that.
Maybe I needed more help on the creatives.
Yeah. Maybe I helped you in a different direction than I should have.
George had a statement before to me that was interesting. Go ahead, George.
-You're a television producer.
Yet you let happen what happened when you could see that this was so far
off the mark of creativity and entertainment value.
There was only four of us - we had to pick what each of us could do.
You see, I have a major problem.
The one difficulty I have with Nely - maybe I'll make it two difficulties -
number one, you really have more experience in this than probably even Marilu, wouldn't you say?
You really have more experience than anybody in this.
The other is that I believe, at least one of the two times,
you probably should have been fired, maybe not both, but certainly one.
I would like to say something. This really isn't about this task.
I've never come into the boardroom except when I failed.
When I failed, I told you I would take the bullet.
-Then you got lucky twice.
-Well, no. With all due respect, the first time...
That doesn't mean you would have been fired.
-But I think you got lucky twice.
-Well, with all due respect, Gene Simmons didn't
bring me into this boardroom because he thought I was excellent, not because I'm lucky.
That's very important for me, because you keep bringing it up,
and I don't know why you haven't gotten over that.
Gene Simmons made a critical mistake when he didn't bring you into the boardroom.
-That's my opinion.
-But not one of my team members has brought me into the boardroom before.
I think you have to look at that.
You have to look at that, and there has to be some justice in that.
I don't understand why, you know, continually all this keeps coming up when...
-I feel like I'm so much like you.
-Because I always revert to the past.
You always have to learn from the past.
-You know what? It doesn't matter. Nely, you're fired.
-Get the hell out of here.
And, Omarosa, you have to step up, because so far, I'll tell you,
-you're not... I mean, Piers is killing you.
He is killing you, and I'm a little surprised to see it.
Donald Trump felt like other times other people took the bullet for me,
this was my turn to take the bullet for other people.
The charity I was playing for was Count Me In,
which raises money for women entrepreneurs to start up their own companies. I'm on their board,
and I will continue to raise money for them.
