Previously on Celebrity Apprentice, a new Trump joined the ranks.

0:00:020:00:04

To my right is Eric Trump.

0:00:040:00:07

Eric is a Georgetown graduate,

0:00:070:00:09

And he really knows construction.

0:00:090:00:11

The teams were tasked with creating

0:00:110:00:13

three live radio commercials for Clockwork Home Services.

0:00:130:00:16

Just go with me.

0:00:160:00:17

-Go on.

-Here we get to open up and have fun.

0:00:170:00:19

Project Manager Bret Michaels took a risk and pushed the envelope.

0:00:190:00:23

"We know people like to crack a lot of jokes..."

0:00:230:00:25

You can't...

0:00:250:00:26

I think they won't like it.

0:00:260:00:28

The executives of the company wanted to avoid any cheap shots at plumbers.

0:00:280:00:33

If I'm wrong, I will take the sword.

0:00:330:00:36

While Tenacity had a problem of their own.

0:00:360:00:39

We're not feeling any input from us ladies.

0:00:390:00:42

And this is very important,

0:00:420:00:43

that you open yourself up to input on it.

0:00:430:00:45

OK, OK.

0:00:450:00:47

'There's a little bit of a different vibe with Tenacity.'

0:00:470:00:49

Let's face it, they can be a little bit bitchy.

0:00:490:00:51

And tensions flared when Maria Kanellis crossed battle lines.

0:00:510:00:55

Curtis is so mad right now.

0:00:570:00:59

-No.

-For real.

0:00:590:01:00

Curtis thinks he's so hot.

0:01:000:01:03

At the live performance both teams went for broke,

0:01:030:01:06

as Cyndi Lauper stepped up to the mic.

0:01:060:01:09

# Call 888-333

0:01:090:01:12

# 88-88 cos we are never late... #

0:01:120:01:15

And Bret went out on a limb.

0:01:150:01:18

Hi, I'm Ben, the punctual plumber.

0:01:180:01:20

We plumbers know people crack a lot of jokes at our expense,

0:01:200:01:23

but we take our job very seriously.

0:01:230:01:25

In the boardroom,

0:01:250:01:26

each team's execution was called into question.

0:01:260:01:29

If they explicitly said,

0:01:290:01:31

"Don't make jokes at the expense of the plumbers,"

0:01:310:01:34

I couldn't really understand why you felt the need.

0:01:340:01:36

I don't want to be fired, but I would have to own up to that one.

0:01:360:01:39

Well, as far as Tenacity,

0:01:390:01:41

they thought you really packed too much

0:01:410:01:43

into too short of commercials.

0:01:430:01:45

In the end, playing it too safe cost Tenacity dearly.

0:01:450:01:49

-Rocksolid, you win. Bret - 40,000 to your charity.

-Yes.

0:01:490:01:53

Thank you very much.

0:01:530:01:54

And when Mr Trump asked who should be fired on the other team...

0:01:540:01:57

Sharon, who do you think I should fire?

0:01:570:01:59

..Sharon Osbourne and Maria Kanellis didn't hold back.

0:01:590:02:03

Oh, Curtis. He's just too smug for me.

0:02:030:02:06

I do agree with Sharon.

0:02:060:02:07

I look at him and I'm like, "I want to punch you."

0:02:070:02:10

Left to face Mr Trump,

0:02:100:02:12

Cyndi's standout performance earned her a free pass.

0:02:120:02:15

Cyndi did everything I told her to do.

0:02:150:02:17

She worked extremely hard.

0:02:170:02:19

You're not going to be fired. Go.

0:02:190:02:21

And when Summer didn't fight for her life...

0:02:210:02:24

-You're having a hard time with it, right?

-I am...

0:02:240:02:26

-Summer, you're having a hard time, right?

-I'm saying Curtis because

0:02:260:02:29

I want to compete for my charity.

0:02:290:02:31

That's not a compelling reason, though.

0:02:310:02:33

..she paid the ultimate price.

0:02:330:02:34

You haven't given a very strong argument for you to stay.

0:02:340:02:38

Summer, you're fired.

0:02:380:02:39

I got to be honest.

0:02:520:02:53

I don't know why they'd let Summer go, man. She's a fighter.

0:02:530:02:56

-She ain't that way.

-She is.

0:02:560:02:57

No, she said, "I'd have to say Curtis, cos it's not going to be me."

0:02:570:03:01

How did he kick you out?

0:03:010:03:02

How did you make an early departure?

0:03:020:03:05

'I didn't think it was so fair that Cyndi

0:03:050:03:07

'got a free pass out of the boardroom.'

0:03:070:03:08

I think I offended her by saying, "How come you're in here?"

0:03:080:03:11

I'm not going to throw myself under the bus

0:03:110:03:13

cos nobody sticks up for the gays.

0:03:130:03:15

What the hell did you just say?

0:03:150:03:17

-SHARON:

-Nobody stands up for the gays.

0:03:170:03:19

-Well, they

-BLEEP

-don't! They can't even get married.

0:03:190:03:22

And it's OK to smoke pot and be a stoner.

0:03:220:03:25

-Thank God.

-But if you love somebody, you can't

0:03:250:03:27

because somehow it upsets somebody.

0:03:270:03:29

'I figure nobody's perfect.'

0:03:310:03:33

But Holly, she's a control freak.

0:03:330:03:35

And she's a two-faced biatch.

0:03:350:03:37

I don't want to deal with her.

0:03:370:03:38

-That sucks.

-Curtis.

0:03:390:03:42

'When Curtis came in, I was deflated.

0:03:420:03:45

'I felt really proud to be in the final six. That's great.'

0:03:450:03:48

But I was just hoping to see my girl come around that corner.

0:03:480:03:51

But she didn't.

0:03:510:03:52

Why did he fire her, just cos she was the Project Manager?

0:03:520:03:55

Yeah. He kept saying, "Why should I fire Curtis?

0:03:550:03:57

"You have to give me a reason."

0:03:570:03:59

-And?

-She didn't really give him one.

0:03:590:04:01

'Pretty-boy Curtis seems so arrogant to me.'

0:04:010:04:04

I thought he was smug from the beginning.

0:04:040:04:07

'And I feel like he takes any opportunity he can

0:04:070:04:10

'to just push out someone else, just to further his needs.'

0:04:100:04:13

Here's to your charity, brother.

0:04:130:04:15

Hey, thank you so much. Cheers, man. Thank you.

0:04:150:04:17

For real.

0:04:170:04:18

0:05:240:05:25

'This morning, we got a chance to see Mr Trump's apartment.

0:05:440:05:47

'I've never seen a view like that before in New York City.'

0:05:470:05:52

I think I saw Russia from Mr Trump's apartment.

0:05:520:05:54

'It has to be one of the greatest views in the entire world.'

0:05:560:06:00

But he has a very interesting sense of style -

0:06:000:06:04

gold and statued and fresco ceilings.

0:06:040:06:09

'Incredible opulence.'

0:06:120:06:14

You feel like you're in the high-rollers room

0:06:140:06:16

of Caesars Palace.

0:06:160:06:17

'I felt like we're going to have to take off our shoes.'

0:06:190:06:21

Then I figure he's going to dry-clean the rugs anyway.

0:06:210:06:24

-Good morning.

-ALL:

-Morning.

0:06:260:06:28

Curtis, at the last boardroom,

0:06:280:06:30

you said that Sharon and Maria didn't like you.

0:06:300:06:33

-Is that a correct statement?

-I think you said that, but I agreed with you.

0:06:330:06:37

-You said they didn't like you because you didn't work together.

-Right.

0:06:370:06:40

-You're now working together. Curtis, get over there.

-Oh, no! Oh, please!

0:06:400:06:43

-Bret, you're going to the other team.

-Oh, man!

0:06:430:06:45

'You never should show your hand, ever,'

0:06:450:06:47

if you're dealing with Donald Trump.

0:06:470:06:49

Because as soon as he knows

0:06:490:06:51

'what you don't like,

0:06:510:06:52

'he's going to give it to you.'

0:06:520:06:54

OK. You're standing in my apartment in Trump Tower,

0:06:540:06:57

one of the greatest apartments ever built.

0:06:570:07:00

Even Richard LeFrak, my great friend for many years

0:07:000:07:03

who builds apartments, likes the apartment.

0:07:030:07:05

And you better be very nice to Richard,

0:07:050:07:07

because Richard is going to be, along with Don,

0:07:070:07:11

my eyes and ears, all right?

0:07:110:07:13

You'll each be given a beautiful apartment,

0:07:130:07:16

and you'll refurbish this apartment appropriately

0:07:160:07:19

for use by visiting executives.

0:07:190:07:21

You're going to paint it and furnish it.

0:07:210:07:23

You're going to fix it and make it look beautiful.

0:07:230:07:25

And you'll decorate one of the rooms

0:07:250:07:28

using your own celebrity style

0:07:280:07:30

to give the apartment that "wow" factor.

0:07:300:07:33

Richard, what is the criteria for winning?

0:07:330:07:36

We're looking for originality, celebrity style,

0:07:360:07:39

your ability to stage the apartment to improve its value

0:07:390:07:43

and the overall quality of the renovation.

0:07:430:07:45

Don, who will be judging?

0:07:450:07:47

You're going to be judged by Lee Curtis of...

0:07:470:07:50

-BridgeStreeet.

-You're going to be judged by Lee Curtis

0:07:510:07:54

-of BridgeStreeet Worldwide.

-Say the whole thing again.

0:07:540:07:56

You blew it. The kid will never be his father.

0:07:560:07:59

I'm only kidding.

0:07:590:08:01

-Isn't that terrible?

-Terrible!

0:08:010:08:02

You thought your kids had it bad, right? Believe me.

0:08:020:08:05

All right, go ahead.

0:08:050:08:06

You're going to be judged by Lee Curtis

0:08:060:08:09

of BridgeStreeet Worldwide,

0:08:090:08:10

as well as celebrity designer Jonathan Adler.

0:08:100:08:14

The winning Project Manager will get 20,000.

0:08:140:08:18

Pick your Project Managers, please.

0:08:180:08:21

I'll let you two decide on this one.

0:08:210:08:22

You don't want me designing anything.

0:08:220:08:24

Maybe you should take it, Cyn.

0:08:240:08:25

I don't know anything about that, and I don't know...

0:08:250:08:28

If you feel strong about it, take it. Let's win.

0:08:280:08:30

OK, come on. Let's go. Holly, who is your Project Manager?

0:08:300:08:33

-I am.

-You again, Holly? Boy, you're really putting yourself out there.

0:08:330:08:37

I didn't necessarily want to be but, you know.

0:08:370:08:39

It's because of the task. I don't live like that, you know.

0:08:390:08:42

Who is your Project Manager?

0:08:420:08:43

-It's Sharon.

-So you're going to get a chance to prove yourself.

0:08:430:08:46

Where's my paintbrush? I'm ready.

0:08:460:08:48

'Holly is a good Project Manager.'

0:08:480:08:51

She's very, very motivated.

0:08:510:08:52

'She's already won an awful lot of money.

0:08:520:08:55

'And I thought,

0:08:550:08:56

'"I've got to try and raise something for my charity."'

0:08:560:08:59

OK, let's go get them. Good luck. Thank you.

0:08:590:09:02

Thank you.

0:09:020:09:03

Thank you.

0:09:030:09:05

Holly, let me ask you this.

0:09:130:09:14

Yes or no, you want to be Project Manager on this?

0:09:140:09:16

Let's pretend we're deciding right now.

0:09:160:09:18

I just didn't feel like it was my "at bat".

0:09:180:09:21

Cyndi, do you want to do it?

0:09:210:09:23

Every time I'm Project Manager,

0:09:230:09:25

she got a problem with me.

0:09:250:09:26

'I did want the project a little,

0:09:260:09:29

'but I knew that Holly likes'

0:09:290:09:32

to do it Holly's way,

0:09:320:09:33

and so Holly might as well be the boss.

0:09:330:09:35

She and I, it's like oil and vinegar.

0:09:350:09:38

All right, look. I'll do it.

0:09:380:09:39

I have no problem doing it. I really don't.

0:09:390:09:42

I really don't. I just had to get in that mind frame.

0:09:420:09:45

That's all. I'm there.

0:09:450:09:46

'I felt forced into being Project Manager on this one.

0:09:460:09:49

'I thought for sure Cyndi was going to step up.'

0:09:490:09:52

I really wanted Cyndi to win for her True Colors Fund.

0:09:520:09:54

It's a great organisation,

0:09:540:09:56

and she believes very deeply in its mission.

0:09:560:09:59

I was thinking you could get,

0:09:590:10:00

like, a really tacky shag rug.

0:10:000:10:03

Right.

0:10:030:10:04

But, you know, I know tacky.

0:10:040:10:06

Or a '70s look where they have the big eggs you could sit in.

0:10:060:10:09

-Yeah, yeah.

-What about Zen?

-Zen is cool.

0:10:090:10:12

-What's Zen?

-Zen is very - it's very relaxed.

0:10:120:10:15

Zen is relaxed, Balinese, Buddhists.

0:10:150:10:18

-Oh, Buddhists.

-I just don't know a lot about that look.

0:10:180:10:21

But can you have cool stuff in there...

0:10:210:10:23

-Oh, yeah. You can mix it...

-Like a sofa that looks like lips?

0:10:230:10:26

'I like Holly, and I like Cyndi,

0:10:260:10:29

'but it is like walking into a really bad situation

0:10:290:10:32

'with two sisters that are just arguing'

0:10:320:10:34

and don't like anything that the other one likes.

0:10:340:10:37

This is going to be fun.

0:10:370:10:38

I was thinking of a disco kitchen.

0:10:380:10:41

Put a disco ball up in the kitchen, have a party.

0:10:410:10:43

Could be in the bathroom.

0:10:460:10:47

Disco ball could be in the bathroom, too.

0:10:470:10:49

All righty, then.

0:10:530:10:55

What is this?

0:10:560:10:58

'This is a massive task in a really short period of time.

0:10:580:11:01

'We've got to paint an entire apartment,

0:11:010:11:03

'shop for all the furniture, get it in, decorate it.'

0:11:030:11:06

I don't know how we'll get it finished.

0:11:060:11:08

-So this is the master bedroom, obviously, right?

-Yes.

0:11:080:11:11

Oh, it's a disgusting colour on the wall

0:11:110:11:14

and there's no dressing room!

0:11:140:11:16

That's the celebrity room.

0:11:160:11:17

It's a celebrity that's seen better days!

0:11:200:11:23

It's a has-been room.

0:11:230:11:25

'The judges wanted one room

0:11:270:11:30

'that you could say was the "celeb" room.'

0:11:300:11:33

But it wasn't a bloody celebrity room. It was a cupboard.

0:11:330:11:36

'So I thought,

0:11:360:11:37

'"Let's make it our our celebrity media room."'

0:11:370:11:41

Do you want to start, um, measuring,

0:11:420:11:44

-like, just different areas?

-Yeah.

0:11:440:11:47

'When Curtis came on our team,

0:11:490:11:51

'I'm thinking, "This is going to be a nightmare."

0:11:510:11:53

'I mean, Sharon and I both don't like this guy.'

0:11:530:11:56

Nothing creative seems to spark in him.

0:11:560:11:59

But we need him now.

0:11:590:12:01

-I would rather do a high table, though.

-Definitely.

0:12:010:12:05

It gives it more individual style and then more room.

0:12:050:12:08

'Sharon and Maria don't like me. That's pretty evident.

0:12:080:12:11

'So if we lose this task,

0:12:110:12:13

'it'll be two against one in the boardroom.

0:12:130:12:15

'So I've got to be super focused on this.'

0:12:150:12:17

I'm going to turn them around. By the end of the challenge,

0:12:170:12:19

I'm going to have them liking me.

0:12:190:12:21

I love the Balinese look.

0:12:320:12:34

But let's embrace the city, but Zen it

0:12:340:12:37

so it's your escape within one of the biggest cities and most awesome...

0:12:370:12:40

-What do you want to call it?

-New York Zen.

0:12:400:12:42

-That's what it is.

-OK. OK.

-New York Zen.

-All right. Good.

0:12:420:12:45

'There's something about the Balinese style

0:12:460:12:49

'that just makes you feel relaxed, refreshed and renewed.

0:12:490:12:52

'So I wanted to do something a little bit different

0:12:520:12:54

'and play with colours that evoke

0:12:540:12:57

'a feeling of serenity and acceptance.'

0:12:570:13:00

Basically, a Balinese experience.

0:13:000:13:02

Holly, this is a big question for you.

0:13:020:13:04

What kind of paint do you see in the bedroom?

0:13:040:13:07

-A very sky, mellow...

-For that bedroom?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:13:070:13:10

-You want to make it like you're in the clouds in there?

-No.

0:13:100:13:13

'I had no idea how this is going to work out

0:13:140:13:17

'with Cyndi, Bret and I.'

0:13:170:13:18

I mean, you couldn't have picked three more different people.

0:13:180:13:21

-Why not do the whole door full of door knockers?

-OK.

0:13:210:13:24

I love peeing all over the carpet. My feet are always warm when I do it.

0:13:240:13:28

This isn't my strongest crew. Put it that way.

0:13:280:13:31

-I really think you should glaze this

-BLEEP

-wall.

0:13:310:13:35

-KNOCK ON DOOR

-Hey. How you doing?

-Good.

0:13:350:13:38

-Pleasure to meet you.

-Lee Curtis.

0:13:380:13:40

-How are you?

-Good. Good.

-Hello!

-Hi.

-How are you?

0:13:400:13:43

-Lee Curtis, president of BridgeStreeet.

-Nice to meet you.

0:13:430:13:46

-Pleasure.

-Good to meet you.

-Yes.

-Fantastic apartment.

0:13:460:13:49

'Sharon says whatever comes into her mind

0:13:490:13:50

'and spits it out, like, "Oh, this is horrible!'

0:13:500:13:53

"Ew, what a bad design!"

0:13:530:13:54

And then the next minute,

0:13:540:13:55

the executive of the company walked through

0:13:550:13:57

and she said, "Lovely apartment!"

0:13:570:14:00

I know you met with Mr Trump this morning.

0:14:000:14:02

He gave you a little bit of the mission.

0:14:020:14:03

-I'll just maybe tell you a little more about who we are.

-Thank you.

0:14:030:14:06

BridgeStreeet is a leading provider of furnished apartments.

0:14:060:14:09

Our clients are typically Fortune 500 executives.

0:14:090:14:12

Average length of stay, usually 60 to 90 days.

0:14:120:14:15

So these are longer-term stays.

0:14:150:14:17

'It hit me in that meeting - someone's going to be living there

0:14:170:14:21

'for maybe a couple weeks or maybe a month or two.'

0:14:210:14:25

And I realised that we got to make sure

0:14:250:14:28

that it still has all the things that a hotel would.

0:14:280:14:31

Our corporate mission is to make it easy

0:14:310:14:34

for our guests to stay with us.

0:14:340:14:36

What's that second bedroom?

0:14:360:14:38

-That's just a real fun...

-What do you want it to be?

0:14:380:14:40

-That's just to go nuts with.

-That's what I'm saying.

0:14:400:14:43

It's a place where you go wild, you walk in and have a whole other experience.

0:14:430:14:46

-OK.

-As good as our product is,

0:14:460:14:48

I know we kind of go to the middle of the demographic

0:14:480:14:51

to make it functional for a lot of people.

0:14:510:14:53

You all, I think, can do a lot more to make it a lot more fun.

0:14:530:14:56

And taking into account the city that you're in, as well -

0:14:560:14:58

one of the greatest cities in the world

0:14:580:15:00

and there's a funk and a vibe to the city

0:15:000:15:02

-that would probably make sense to think about as well.

-Got it.

0:15:020:15:06

'From what he said, one of those two bedrooms we've got to give

0:15:060:15:09

'a really awesome celebrity style to.'

0:15:090:15:11

He wants it so when they come in, they feel this warmth.

0:15:110:15:14

Yet at the same time, it has a different feel.

0:15:140:15:17

-Unless you need me, I will let you do your magic.

-Thank you so much.

0:15:170:15:19

All right, thank you very much.

0:15:190:15:21

-Good luck. Have fun.

-Thanks.

0:15:210:15:23

I'm really picturing that celebrity room red.

0:15:230:15:26

So that's that eclectic, crazy-ass room

0:15:260:15:28

-that I think you could really help me with, Cyn.

-All right.

0:15:280:15:31

Something off the beaten path. Something a little different.

0:15:310:15:34

Holly, she let me have a room,

0:15:340:15:36

the cuckoo room, the room I could have fun in.

0:15:360:15:38

'Then I started to think of what I could do

0:15:380:15:41

'to make it, like, really nutty fun.

0:15:410:15:44

'I'm sick of having everything so normal.'

0:15:440:15:47

You say you want red. Then pick a red.

0:15:470:15:49

-I'm trying. I'm picking seven colours at once.

-I know, sweetie.

0:15:490:15:52

-Like your nails would be great.

-Hold on. Let her make that decision.

0:15:520:15:56

'I had no idea if Bret would be effective or not.

0:15:560:15:59

'But he was very organised. And he was diplomatic.'

0:15:590:16:03

I just need it to be kind of a Zen...

0:16:030:16:04

-Holly, can I cut to the chase?

-Yeah.

0:16:040:16:06

Just make a decision. You make it, we'll go get it.

0:16:060:16:09

I like the way he managed Cyndi and I, actually.

0:16:090:16:12

-What are you going to do here?

-How you doing, guys? I'm Bret.

0:16:120:16:15

-Mitch.

-Nice to meet you. How you doing?

0:16:150:16:17

-Do you know what we're doing?

-Decorating this place.

0:16:170:16:20

-Trying to.

-We're trying to do it overnight.

0:16:200:16:22

-We're here to give you a hand.

-'Our handyman came.'

0:16:220:16:24

I was pleased to see strapping young men willing to paint my walls.

0:16:240:16:27

I was OK with that.

0:16:270:16:29

All right, so my colours are picked out

0:16:290:16:31

-but they're going to get the paint.

-No.

-I'm going to the prop house.

0:16:310:16:35

Cyn, are you going with me to the prop house?

0:16:350:16:37

And you two can go together to Janovic, right?

0:16:370:16:40

-And Ace.

-And Ace.

-OK. You got it.

0:16:400:16:43

I love this pillow. On its own, it's great,

0:16:490:16:52

but with that other stuff, it's not.

0:16:520:16:54

'Maria, Curtis, and I went to the Bo furniture store,'

0:16:540:16:58

which we'd had a line of credit with.

0:16:580:17:01

It's nice stuff. Yeah.

0:17:020:17:04

I like it.

0:17:060:17:07

'I wanted modern, clean lines because it's non-offensive.

0:17:070:17:12

'If you're trying to do a corporate apartment

0:17:120:17:14

'and a businessman comes in

0:17:140:17:15

'and there's all these tchotchkes everywhere,'

0:17:150:17:18

it's like oppressive.

0:17:180:17:19

Sharon, I love this mirror back here because it definitely...

0:17:190:17:24

-No.

-But I do love these pillows right here.

0:17:240:17:27

That looks like something you'd get from a truck stop.

0:17:270:17:30

I like this.

0:17:300:17:31

I'm so anti that wood look. I hate it.

0:17:310:17:35

'I was like, "Why don't we do this? Why don't we do that?"'

0:17:350:17:38

But Sharon kept saying, "No."

0:17:380:17:41

I really do think we're going to get criticised

0:17:410:17:44

-for not pushing it.

-Rubbish.

0:17:440:17:46

It takes time to learn how to decorate.

0:17:460:17:49

'In the time that I've been with my husband,

0:17:490:17:51

'we have lived in 20 properties, so I have all that experience.

0:17:510:17:57

'But Maria's a kid.'

0:17:570:17:59

-This is a good bed. It's got storage underneath.

-Yeah.

0:17:590:18:02

I've got the full-length mirror here

0:18:020:18:05

-that just goes up against the wall over there.

-Leans up against it.

0:18:050:18:08

-I've got the same thing at my house.

-Me too.

0:18:080:18:11

We ran around the showroom. We picked out all these things.

0:18:110:18:14

And I think that Sharon and I made a real connection.

0:18:140:18:17

And we worked well together.

0:18:170:18:19

When you've got somebody like Jonathan Adler

0:18:190:18:22

-coming to judge...

-You don't want him to come in and say, "That's tacky."

0:18:220:18:25

No. The thing is, Maria, she's got truck-stop taste.

0:18:250:18:29

'I've never heard of a truck-stop style,

0:18:290:18:32

'but I understand what she means when she says it.'

0:18:320:18:35

-So, Maria, we want you to go to the paint store now.

-OK.

0:18:350:18:39

She felt more comfortable with Maria running off

0:18:390:18:41

and grabbing the paint and me helping her with the furniture.

0:18:410:18:45

So all you need to do there is get this.

0:18:450:18:49

'They knew that I would go and do the dirty work.

0:18:490:18:52

'Curtis is stealing my spot - master manipulator.'

0:18:520:18:56

Maybe that creeped me out from the beginning. Something did.

0:18:560:18:59

Something bothered me about this man from the very beginning.

0:18:590:19:02

I would start in this room. I picked these two rooms.

0:19:120:19:15

So when they come in with all that crap,

0:19:150:19:17

they don't screw you up.

0:19:170:19:18

Let's rock, man. We're good to go.

0:19:180:19:20

'Holly put me in charge of the crew and I got the crew moving.'

0:19:200:19:24

Oh, that's killer.

0:19:270:19:29

'But the one thing I knew that the executives said

0:19:290:19:31

'is bring in a piece of this awesome city of New York,'

0:19:310:19:34

and so I just grabbed the camera and started shooting pictures

0:19:340:19:37

of absolutely what I think New York is.

0:19:370:19:39

'I'm going to put these big shots all over the place

0:19:390:19:41

'and make you feel like, "I'm in a New York state of mind."'

0:19:410:19:44

With a cowboy hat, of course.

0:19:440:19:46

Franco? Hi.

0:19:530:19:56

-You're doing a theme party?

-Well, no, we're actually...

0:19:560:19:59

More than that. We got to win, you got to help us.

0:19:590:20:01

We're decorating an entire apartment.

0:20:010:20:03

'Cyndi and I went to the prop store and Franco was fabulous.'

0:20:030:20:06

We told him about our Balinese/Zen theme

0:20:060:20:09

and he said, "Great. I've got great pieces."

0:20:090:20:11

-So, there is our Buddha.

-She's awesome.

0:20:130:20:15

I like her. I think we definitely need to take her.

0:20:150:20:17

-I love the screen.

-Yeah, right?

0:20:170:20:19

Yeah, we can put that somewhere against one of those walls.

0:20:190:20:22

CYNDI GASPS

0:20:220:20:23

Shopping with Cyndi was like shopping with one of my children.

0:20:230:20:26

This was just eye candy for her.

0:20:260:20:29

Isn't that fun?

0:20:290:20:31

'Cyndi was sort of like a gnat on a swamp in that place.'

0:20:310:20:33

Oh, my God! Disco!

0:20:330:20:35

I mean, she was just flitting from one side to the next.

0:20:350:20:38

-Should I get a bigger one?

-I think the little one's good.

0:20:380:20:41

You don't want to make it too crazy.

0:20:410:20:43

-Why not?

-OK, let's make it crazy.

0:20:430:20:45

Are you sure you don't want to do this?

0:20:450:20:48

I think it's too grand for that little space.

0:20:480:20:50

'I was sick and tired

0:20:500:20:52

-'of Holly being so

-BLEEP

-damn conservative.

0:20:520:20:56

I hate that.

0:20:560:20:57

'You need colour. You have to have some romance.

0:20:570:21:00

'Let your freak flag fly.'

0:21:000:21:03

Live your fantasy.

0:21:040:21:06

Really fantastic and fab... fabulous.

0:21:060:21:09

When you walk in, you're just transported.

0:21:090:21:11

You see her, you see this. You put the luscious pillows there.

0:21:110:21:15

-And you're in another world.

-No.

0:21:150:21:17

Holly will go the Thai feel, cos that's what she's into.

0:21:200:21:24

'Sharon expected Tenacity to do an Asian theme,'

0:21:240:21:27

Buddhas and, you know, all that sort of stuff.

0:21:270:21:29

Hi. Props for today?

0:21:320:21:33

Could you please tell me what sort of props

0:21:330:21:36

you have for rental?

0:21:360:21:37

Do you think it's possible

0:21:400:21:41

for you to take a picture and send it to me?

0:21:410:21:44

Oh, thank you. Yes.

0:21:470:21:48

Oh, you did? Did you have Holly in there?

0:21:510:21:54

Oh, they're doing the Balinesian. Oh, fantastic.

0:21:570:22:00

'This nice lady on the other end of the phone'

0:22:010:22:04

is just chatty, chatty, chatty,

0:22:040:22:05

telling me everything they're doing.

0:22:050:22:07

Did she manage to get the Balinese bed

0:22:070:22:10

so I don't need to get it for her?

0:22:100:22:12

-Exactly.

-All right.

0:22:120:22:14

'I just feel that the Balinese theme

0:22:140:22:17

'is not right for a corporate apartment.'

0:22:170:22:19

It's too eclectic to have a theme as strong as that.

0:22:190:22:23

'You need to be neutral.'

0:22:230:22:25

OK, thank you so much. Bye-bye.

0:22:250:22:28

-I knew it.

-We said it, right?

0:22:280:22:31

-We said it right from the word go.

-I feel like a spy now.

0:22:310:22:34

Hey, Holly. Listen, I've got to leave.

0:22:440:22:47

I'm already a half-hour late.

0:22:470:22:48

-I'll see you guys back in the morning.

-'OK, Bret.'

0:22:480:22:51

'I need to leave today to do a concert.

0:22:510:22:53

'But I'm going to fly back tonight. I'm going to get on it tomorrow.'

0:22:530:22:56

I'm going to have no sleep.

0:22:560:22:58

But I am here for Holly, man.

0:22:580:22:59

I'm going to get it done. I want to win.

0:22:590:23:01

Holly? I got something amazing happening right now.

0:23:010:23:04

-'OK.'

-I have this amazing panoramic shot

0:23:040:23:07

of the skyline and the Chrysler Building.

0:23:070:23:09

It looks really cool with the clouds.

0:23:090:23:11

And when you turn that all to grey scale or black-and-white,

0:23:110:23:13

-it's going to look amazing.

-I love that, Bret. You know what?

0:23:130:23:17

I like you on my team a lot better than you on the other team.

0:23:170:23:20

I just have to say that.

0:23:200:23:21

'Bret is a way stronger team-mate than I thought he was.

0:23:210:23:24

'This guy comes to play.'

0:23:240:23:25

So I'm a little distressed that he's leaving right now.

0:23:250:23:28

But he's got a gig, and he's got to go.

0:23:280:23:30

You know the chandelier? Should I get one?

0:23:300:23:33

For the red room, you can do what you want.

0:23:330:23:35

We're doing the whole apartment,

0:23:350:23:36

but there has to be one fun celebrity room.

0:23:360:23:38

So I had the perfect place to be a nut job.

0:23:380:23:41

Hey, Holly.

0:23:410:23:43

I want to put one of these in the room

0:23:430:23:45

so they can feel it's really rock-'n'-roll.

0:23:450:23:47

Cyndi, what is this room?

0:23:470:23:49

It's a rock-'n'-roll room that you can lounge in.

0:23:490:23:51

-It's a guest bedroom, but it's...

-It's a rock-'n'-roll lounge.

-Yeah.

0:23:510:23:55

OK. OK.

0:23:550:23:56

-I think it should be a black sofa.

-That would really work well

0:23:560:23:59

-with the black chandelier.

-Right, it'd be strong.

0:23:590:24:01

'I'm just learning to love Cyndi this task.'

0:24:010:24:04

But Cyndi's a creative hurricane.

0:24:040:24:06

-SHE GASPS

-Holly! For the kitchen!

0:24:060:24:09

Oh, my gosh! And Bret could be behind it.

0:24:090:24:13

-And you put your two tables there.

-Bret could be behind it!

0:24:130:24:16

'When you realise that you're in the eye of the hurricane,'

0:24:160:24:19

you just stay there and ride it out.

0:24:190:24:22

'That's how I feel about Cyndi. I rode out her creative hurricane.'

0:24:220:24:26

Cyndi Lauper, I am your auntie!

0:24:260:24:28

I feel like we're a same-sex couple shopping.

0:24:280:24:31

-"Oh, yes, Holly."

-THEY LAUGH

0:24:310:24:34

'I actually made Holly laugh.'

0:24:340:24:36

You know, I kept telling her, "Sweetie, darling,

0:24:360:24:39

"this new life we're going into is fabulous.

0:24:390:24:41

"We're going to share this fabulous apartment."

0:24:410:24:44

'She actually - she was laughing. We were having fun.'

0:24:440:24:47

I love my new life. OK.

0:24:470:24:49

-I'm so glad we got married.

-I'm so glad we got married.

0:24:490:24:53

Let's just go.

0:24:560:24:58

Let's just go, cos we've got a place to decorate!

0:24:580:25:01

'So, for this task, I had an idea.'

0:25:010:25:03

If I can call a bunch of my friends

0:25:030:25:04

'in the housewares industry and ask them

0:25:040:25:07

'to hook me up with some free stuff, basically,

0:25:070:25:09

'that could work, so I did.'

0:25:090:25:10

Oh, God, I love these things. Gorgeous!

0:25:100:25:14

'We probably walked out of there

0:25:140:25:16

'with about ten-grand worth of stuff.'

0:25:160:25:18

Nothing like a day of shopping.

0:25:200:25:22

'I called a very good friend of mine'

0:25:250:25:28

and I'm like, "Where can I go to in the city

0:25:280:25:30

"where they will let me take everything out of their shop?"

0:25:300:25:34

Anything in here that you need is all yours.

0:25:340:25:37

-That would be just a godsend for us right now.

-OK.

0:25:370:25:41

'It's fabulous to be Sharon Osbourne. People are so terribly generous'

0:25:410:25:46

to what they perceive as a celebrity.

0:25:460:25:48

-Could we have this one, too?

-Yes.

0:25:480:25:51

And also the black-and-white print.

0:25:510:25:54

'We literally walked around and said, "One of those,'

0:25:540:25:56

'"one of those, two of those."'

0:25:560:25:58

And I got to see Sharon in fine form.

0:25:580:26:00

That one would be so perfect.

0:26:040:26:06

And we got 140,000 worth of free stuff.

0:26:080:26:11

Curtis, can I get you a drink?

0:26:110:26:13

-Maybe a coffee, like a latte.

-OK.

0:26:130:26:16

Would Sharon make a good sugar mama?

0:26:160:26:18

Abso-bloody-lutely.

0:26:180:26:19

-Hello there!

-Hi. How are you? How you doing?

0:26:210:26:24

-Good to see you.

-How you doing?

-Very good.

-Here we are.

0:26:240:26:26

Does this remind you of that beautiful apartment we were in this morning?

0:26:260:26:29

-Um, no.

-No, no, no?

-It's a little different.

0:26:290:26:33

'When Mr LeFrak comes by, I'm there by myself.

0:26:330:26:36

'And he's looking around going,'

0:26:360:26:38

"Um, nothing is done."

0:26:380:26:40

And I'm like, "But don't look over there! Look here! Yes!"

0:26:400:26:43

I was, like, flashing my boobs.

0:26:430:26:45

We're going to do a media room in here -

0:26:450:26:47

a couple of big, comfy leather couches.

0:26:470:26:50

-Of course, the big-screen TV.

-What do you think of that?

0:26:500:26:53

I think we could push it more. So we'll see.

0:26:530:26:56

I wanted to make sure that he knew my feelings

0:26:570:27:00

about the celebrity room,

0:27:000:27:01

that he knew that I didn't necessarily agree with it

0:27:010:27:04

'so when we got to the boardroom, I was covered.'

0:27:040:27:07

And then in the living area, we have a low table.

0:27:070:27:11

We're also going to get some chandelier

0:27:110:27:13

to hang from over here.

0:27:130:27:15

'I got a complete verbal description'

0:27:150:27:17

of what they were doing, but the rooms were pretty empty.

0:27:170:27:20

So right now, it's just an idea,

0:27:200:27:23

and it hasn't really taken shape yet.

0:27:230:27:25

'And they better hurry up.'

0:27:250:27:27

-Good luck.

-Well, thank you very much.

-We'll see you later.

0:27:270:27:29

Thank you. You take care.

0:27:290:27:31

What do you think?

0:27:430:27:44

-Oh, that's pretty.

-Oh, it's beautiful.

0:27:440:27:46

Oh, the paint looks good. I love the colour.

0:27:460:27:49

It's bright and red, and I love it. I think it'll look really cool

0:27:490:27:52

with the furniture Cyndi picked out.

0:27:520:27:54

Cyndi and I got back to the apartment.

0:27:540:27:56

Bret had done a great job getting that painting started.

0:27:560:27:58

So I felt like I could start decorating.

0:27:580:28:01

You good?

0:28:040:28:06

'I did a lot of manual labour, a lot of lifting,

0:28:060:28:09

'a lot of carrying things that were heavy.'

0:28:090:28:12

I had some fun. I worked really hard, though.

0:28:120:28:14

Please tell me that's not broken.

0:28:200:28:22

I really hope they come back soon.

0:28:270:28:29

I've got lots of questions.

0:28:290:28:31

'There was so much to do. Me by myself with these two guys.'

0:28:320:28:37

There was no way to get it done without some extra help.

0:28:370:28:41

PHONE RINGS

0:28:410:28:43

-Hello?

-Hello?

0:28:430:28:45

Hi, Maria. The purple wall is...

0:28:450:28:48

I think we should go with the dark grey in the living room.

0:28:480:28:52

OK. Shoot. I started painting it purple.

0:28:520:28:55

And so you want dark grey in the living room, though.

0:28:550:28:58

Yeah.

0:28:580:28:59

'I was thinking about the colour combinations all day,'

0:28:590:29:03

and I just thought, "Grey isn't offensive."

0:29:030:29:05

And so many other colours

0:29:050:29:08

work great with it.

0:29:080:29:10

So it was like, "Nah, we got to go grey."

0:29:100:29:13

And we're running low on time for painting this place,

0:29:130:29:17

and so I didn't know if you wanted to try and hire some painters.

0:29:170:29:20

OK. Bye-bye. Bye.

0:29:200:29:23

I can probably get a couple of my friends to come and help us paint.

0:29:230:29:26

PHONE RINGS

0:29:260:29:28

-'Hello?'

-Have you got plans tonight, buddy?

0:29:280:29:30

I might need you to come and be a painter with me,

0:29:300:29:32

paint the apartment. We've got to paint an apartment tonight.

0:29:320:29:35

And maybe you're going to have to bring your wife, too.

0:29:350:29:38

'I called everyone I knew,

0:29:380:29:40

'pretty much everyone I knew in New York

0:29:400:29:42

-'and asked, begged them, to come down and help.'

-Taylor?

0:29:420:29:45

Can you come and paint for us?

0:29:450:29:48

There's just no way that we are going to get all this -

0:29:480:29:52

we need help. We're just not going to get through it.

0:29:520:29:54

Oi oi oi!

0:29:540:29:55

-Hi!

-How are you?

0:30:080:30:10

-A little giddy.

-Yeah.

0:30:100:30:11

From the smell. Lovely.

0:30:110:30:13

-Nice little contact high.

-Yeah, for sure.

0:30:130:30:15

But, you know, we're doing pretty good.

0:30:150:30:17

-I've got painter Cyndi.

-That is a hot look.

0:30:170:30:20

It's very hot.

0:30:200:30:21

We're doing a New York Zen look.

0:30:210:30:24

The special celebrity room is going to be all Cyndi's, just...

0:30:240:30:28

-Fun room.

-Cyndi, show me.

-Cyndi's explosion.

0:30:280:30:30

-There's nothing to see except colour!

-Colour?

-We did a red room.

0:30:300:30:33

Wow. And that's seriously red.

0:30:330:30:35

So we're going very aggressive. I like it.

0:30:350:30:37

-No, but it's fun.

-Yeah.

-And I got an Eiffel Tower.

0:30:370:30:41

We got an Eiffel Tower, and it's a little French. It's good.

0:30:410:30:45

I've never seen a greater mismatch than what Cyndi's done

0:30:450:30:48

versus what Holly's doing with the rest of the apartment.

0:30:480:30:50

They're actually allowing Cyndi to be Cyndi.

0:30:500:30:53

She's an eclectic person. She's got very, you know, wild taste

0:30:530:30:56

and they're letting her run with that. We'll have to see how the judges perceive it.

0:30:560:30:59

-We're going for a green bedroom.

-Oh, yeah?

0:30:590:31:03

All these colours are supposed to evoke some sort of Zen energy.

0:31:030:31:06

-OK.

-Are you feeling it?

-I am.

0:31:060:31:08

That's just the... Yeah, it's the fumes, I think, but...

0:31:080:31:11

I look forward to seeing it tomorrow.

0:31:110:31:13

-Thanks for coming.

-We will see you soon.

-OK, Don.

0:31:130:31:15

-Thank you, Curtis.

-You're welcome.

0:31:230:31:25

Right, you go, brother.

0:31:280:31:31

Hello, my darling.

0:31:310:31:34

My God. Look how much paint.

0:31:340:31:36

'I was a bit surprised when we got back.

0:31:360:31:38

'There wasn't a hell of a lot done. I didn't have crazy expectations,'

0:31:380:31:41

but you get back and are like, "Oh, wow! We've still got a lot to do."

0:31:410:31:46

I'm trying to get two more guys here.

0:31:460:31:48

So I think the best thing to do

0:31:480:31:50

is just get killing it with the paint.

0:31:500:31:52

'Sharon and Curtis were looking around,

0:31:520:31:55

'wondering why more wasn't done.'

0:31:550:31:56

And I'm like, "What did you guys expect?

0:31:560:31:59

"I'm busting my ASS!"

0:31:590:32:01

-Brought you a present, Maria.

-'Two boys are here.'

0:32:010:32:04

I'm so glad you came!

0:32:040:32:06

We have so much work to do!

0:32:060:32:08

'I'd been feeling like,'

0:32:080:32:10

"I hope somebody comes in here soon,

0:32:100:32:13

"cos I'm going to be in big-time trouble."

0:32:130:32:15

-To the rescue!

-The cavalry's just arrived.

0:32:180:32:21

'But then Maria's friends came over.

0:32:210:32:25

'I had some friends come over. Curtis had some friends.

0:32:250:32:29

'And I just felt things were definitely getting better.'

0:32:290:32:32

You all right? You all right? Come on.

0:32:320:32:34

You want a hug? You want a hug? You want a hug and a kiss?

0:32:340:32:37

Oh, God, we need that.

0:32:370:32:39

'It was a really jovial atmosphere. It was fun.

0:32:400:32:43

'I felt like I was at college

0:32:430:32:45

'and we were painting our dorm room.

0:32:450:32:47

'Everybody destroyed their clothes. We got a couple of beers.

0:32:470:32:50

'We ate some pizza and painted.'

0:32:500:32:52

It was like the proper college party.

0:32:520:32:54

OK, so let's finish this up.

0:32:540:32:56

I think the metal gold,

0:33:020:33:03

like, bronze over there

0:33:030:33:05

and over there would be nice.

0:33:050:33:07

'Cyndi and I are holding it down. So I feel good about where we are.'

0:33:070:33:10

But I am looking forward to Bret coming back.

0:33:100:33:12

-I want to show you the windowsill.

-OK. Hold on one sec.

0:33:120:33:15

'Cyndi's vision will come together.

0:33:150:33:17

'I just know how it's frustrating for Cyndi

0:33:170:33:20

'to be creative under the gun. So it's hard for her'

0:33:200:33:23

to really just say, "OK, this is what I want."

0:33:230:33:27

-It's red.

-Yeah, it's red.

0:33:270:33:29

The Eiffel Tower will look great in there.

0:33:290:33:31

It will. You pick up that gold.

0:33:310:33:34

'If it's a rock-'n'-roll room, you got to push it.

0:33:340:33:37

'Cos that's where you're going to go and kick back.'

0:33:370:33:39

God, this has got to be fun.

0:33:390:33:42

You know what, I want to take a picture of this now,

0:33:420:33:44

because tomorrow we're going to pull this thing together.

0:33:440:33:47

After all the tasks that we've done,

0:33:470:33:49

I believe in being able

0:33:490:33:51

to turn this stuff around at the last minute.

0:33:510:33:53

'It was a little bit of a rough start to this task.'

0:33:530:33:55

I went in thinking I wasn't going to be Project Manager

0:33:550:33:59

'but I'm glad I was Project Manager because I started to see the apartment coming together,

0:33:590:34:03

'and I was like, "I'm proud of this."'

0:34:030:34:05

-We're in good shape.

-I think so.

-I had my doubts.

0:34:050:34:07

-You were worried for a minute, but now you're OK?

-For a couple of minutes.

0:34:070:34:11

But you came through, Holly.

0:34:110:34:12

OK. Thanks so much, Kate.

0:34:240:34:26

'OK. No problem.'

0:34:260:34:27

Speak to you later. OK. Bye.

0:34:270:34:29

'It's getting towards the end of the night, and we get a phone call from the furniture store.'

0:34:290:34:33

Sharon, there's another truck still coming.

0:34:330:34:36

We got so much furniture.

0:34:360:34:38

-'We got way too much stuff.'

-Don't be silly.

0:34:380:34:41

It's not a joke.

0:34:410:34:42

'I really wanted to take a little bit of control

0:34:470:34:49

'over what was coming off the trucks'

0:34:490:34:51

and making sure it was placed appropriately

0:34:510:34:54

so that the next day we could get that stuff upstairs.

0:34:540:34:56

She just went and spent more...

0:34:560:34:59

..on decking out this apartment

0:35:000:35:03

than most people spend on their apartment.

0:35:030:35:05

'When you unload three sofas, you could have just unloaded one'

0:35:050:35:08

and then done a great job of setting it up, as opposed to unload three

0:35:080:35:12

and then do a really rushed job of setting that one up.

0:35:120:35:14

'That wasted even more time, and every second was super precious.'

0:35:140:35:18

Even the one thing I thought she said "No" to, she got.

0:35:180:35:21

Oh, she's crazy.

0:35:210:35:22

-Maria?

-Yes?

0:35:230:35:25

Now I'm worried about the colours in here

0:35:250:35:27

-because the

-BLEEP

-kitchen's beige and brown.

0:35:270:35:32

And I'm now worried.

0:35:320:35:34

'The wall changed from purple to grey

0:35:340:35:36

'and now Sharon doesn't like the grey on the wall.'

0:35:360:35:38

We don't have time to be changing our mind

0:35:380:35:40

on the wall colours over and over

0:35:400:35:42

and over and over and over again.

0:35:420:35:43

Decide on something and make it work.

0:35:430:35:45

I, like, don't even want to look at that wall now.

0:35:450:35:48

And this is patchy.

0:35:480:35:49

'Nobody wants to hear after you've'

0:35:490:35:51

wasted all that time working on a colour

0:35:510:35:55

and then somebody goes,

0:35:550:35:56

"Sorry, don't want it now. Change."

0:35:560:35:58

'But everything was on the line for me.

0:35:580:36:01

'I didn't want to lose.'

0:36:010:36:02

I'm now panicking about the colour of the hall and the living room.

0:36:020:36:05

-Look at Curtis looking at me like, "She's

-BLEEP

-mad."

0:36:050:36:10

'There's still so much work to do.'

0:36:100:36:12

We haven't even gotten close to finish painting,

0:36:120:36:14

'and it's Sharon's fault.

0:36:140:36:16

'I don't know what we're going to do. It's a disaster.'

0:36:160:36:19

'On the second morning,

0:36:360:36:37

'Maria had the task of going to Bed Bath & Beyond,

0:36:370:36:40

'and Curtis and I went to the apartment.'

0:36:400:36:43

-Oh, my...

-God.

0:36:430:36:45

Well, it doesn't smell too bad. I was worried about the smell.

0:36:490:36:53

'I didn't know whether I wanted to cry or just laugh,'

0:36:530:36:56

cos it was so daunting.

0:36:560:36:58

It was so like,

0:36:580:36:59

-"Oh

-BLEEP,

-where do we begin?"

0:36:590:37:02

What are we going to do about that red wall?

0:37:030:37:05

Probably give it a second coat.

0:37:050:37:07

Oh, no, we don't want it now, no.

0:37:070:37:09

'Sharon decided to paint over the red.'

0:37:090:37:12

At this point, in my opinion, it's too late to change.

0:37:120:37:14

But Sharon's the Project Manager, so if she wants to change,

0:37:140:37:17

I'll go along with it.

0:37:170:37:19

-Oh,

-BLEEP

-me!

0:37:190:37:22

-We're

-BLEEP!

0:37:220:37:24

-Absolutely

-BLEEP

-out of time.

0:37:240:37:26

Everywhere I look, there's another wall that needs painting.

0:37:260:37:29

-This is quite possibly one of the most monumental

-BLEEP

-ups

0:37:290:37:33

that I've ever been involved in.

0:37:330:37:35

We've just got so much to do.

0:37:350:37:37

Can we move this out the way, please?

0:37:390:37:42

'I went down to the holding area where all the furniture was,

0:37:420:37:46

'and I was trying to work out in my head'

0:37:460:37:50

which one, which one, which one do we take up?

0:37:500:37:53

I need some advice.

0:37:530:37:55

We've got really big pieces that won't fit in the elevator.

0:37:550:38:00

How do we do it?

0:38:000:38:01

There's no other freight elevator?

0:38:010:38:04

-All the elevators that are used for people are just...?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:38:040:38:08

'A lot of stuff didn't fit in the elevators,

0:38:080:38:11

'so we had to physically carry it up.'

0:38:110:38:14

All of those that are wrapped up, they're really heavy.

0:38:140:38:17

'So it was very difficult.'

0:38:170:38:19

I was ready to just go lock myself in a cupboard

0:38:190:38:23

and start hitting my head on the wall.

0:38:230:38:25

I felt, "Any minute, I'm going to do it." Oy!

0:38:250:38:28

-I'm

-BLEEP

-knackered!

0:38:280:38:30

-Is this us?

-Yes.

-There's no more than this? This is all there was?

0:38:360:38:40

OK, let me take it up. This is much smaller than the...

0:38:400:38:44

I had like a whole wall.

0:38:440:38:46

'Last night, I played a show, flew all the way back,

0:38:460:38:49

'got here at four in the morning, slept for two hours.

0:38:490:38:51

'I'm on a new team with Holly and Cyndi'

0:38:510:38:53

and I just want to prove to them I'm going to give 1,000%.

0:38:530:38:56

'So I'd snapped all these really interesting photos.'

0:38:560:38:59

Now, this is perfect, but it's a little small.

0:38:590:39:02

You remember Spinal Tap,

0:39:020:39:04

when he wanted it 12 foot high and it came 12 inches?

0:39:040:39:08

'This is a disaster. They're supposed to be seven foot and eight foot,'

0:39:080:39:12

and these photographs are wallet-size, man.

0:39:120:39:15

This is... This is bad.

0:39:150:39:16

'All right, I'm going to hide these so Holly doesn't freak out.'

0:39:160:39:19

I need to fix this problem right away,

0:39:190:39:21

and I'm hoping I have enough time to do it.

0:39:210:39:24

I know it's going to be horrible, but you know what?

0:39:240:39:26

Just see if you can punch me out an eight-by-four.

0:39:260:39:29

'What's your drop-dead time?'

0:39:310:39:32

-As soon as you can get... yesterday.

-'OK.'

0:39:320:39:35

-Thank you so much. Bye-bye.

-'You're welcome. Bye-bye.'

0:39:350:39:38

We've already got towels.

0:39:410:39:43

I grabbed an ironing board and an iron.

0:39:430:39:46

I'm grabbing a rug for the front door.

0:39:460:39:49

-I'm trying to get out of here as soon as I can.

-'OK, be in touch.'

0:39:490:39:52

All right. I will. Bye-bye.

0:39:520:39:54

'Why am I by myself all the time? Here I am at Bed Bath & Beyond.

0:39:560:40:01

'But this is so much fun for me,

0:40:010:40:03

'because now I get to go shopping while Sharon and Curtis,

0:40:030:40:05

'they get to do the manual labour,'

0:40:050:40:07

which I'm really excited for.

0:40:070:40:09

-Hi!

-Hi!

0:40:090:40:11

How are you doing? It's good to see you!

0:40:110:40:14

I was like, "I know nobody else has those jeans but my girl."

0:40:140:40:16

Yeah, well, these jeans actually are working jeans.

0:40:160:40:19

We got about four hours to go

0:40:190:40:21

till we have to present our corporate apartment.

0:40:210:40:24

You know what I was thinking? Can't I get some lace or something?

0:40:240:40:28

'Working within time frames is difficult for Cyndi,

0:40:280:40:30

'but I was trying to keep her on task.'

0:40:300:40:33

-Buddy, this is better than that.

-For what?

-For the curtains.

0:40:330:40:38

-But you can't put tablecloths up for curtains.

-They're not going to know.

0:40:380:40:42

You won't be able to throw a tablecloth up as curtains.

0:40:420:40:45

OK. I give.

0:40:450:40:46

'Now that we're, you know, married

0:40:460:40:48

'and decorating our apartment together,

0:40:480:40:50

'I really feel as though Cyndi listens to me -'

0:40:500:40:53

she has more respect for what I have to say.

0:40:530:40:55

I think I am ready. Cyn?!

0:40:550:40:58

Oh, my God. I think I need everything.

0:40:590:41:02

All right, let's get started, ladies.

0:41:020:41:05

I don't know if I'm allowed to buy all this, though.

0:41:050:41:07

I have to ask my partner.

0:41:070:41:09

This is our first little house together.

0:41:090:41:11

We have, actually, we have a guy involved, too.

0:41:110:41:14

'What in the world is going on?'

0:41:140:41:17

Cyndi Lauper is running amok at Bed Bath & Beyond.

0:41:170:41:20

'We had so many items, and we had little time left.

0:41:200:41:23

'So I basically had to pull the plug on Cyndi's mad adventure.'

0:41:230:41:28

Good morning, Bed Bath & Beyond.

0:41:280:41:31

Customers, I'm looking for a Cyndi Lauper.

0:41:310:41:34

Cyndi Lauper, are you up here?

0:41:340:41:36

Where is she?

0:41:360:41:38

Holly's looking for you. Cyn!

0:41:380:41:40

Holly! I'm here! I'm here!

0:41:400:41:42

Cyn! I was worried.

0:41:420:41:44

-So, let's check out. We got to go.

-I know.

0:41:440:41:46

50, 70...

0:41:460:41:48

-And thank you very much.

-Thank you.

0:41:480:41:51

Come on, you rat sidewinder.

0:41:510:41:54

Oh, my goodness!

0:42:000:42:01

OK, what can I start with, hon?

0:42:010:42:03

Do you want to start tarting up that blue bathroom?

0:42:030:42:06

OK. Yeah.

0:42:060:42:08

'When I walked in to the apartment,

0:42:080:42:11

'this place is still crazy, wild, stuff everywhere.

0:42:110:42:15

'Nothing's put away.'

0:42:150:42:17

We had so much to do!

0:42:170:42:19

It's looking good.

0:42:190:42:20

It's looking good. Thank you so much.

0:42:200:42:23

-Looks so much better, hey?

-It does!

-So much better.

0:42:230:42:26

-It's actually... I wish we'd done the whole room like that.

-I know.

0:42:260:42:29

-It's good, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:42:290:42:31

'Sharon made the colours fun'

0:42:310:42:32

without pushing the envelope too far.

0:42:320:42:34

'She did a good job with it.'

0:42:340:42:36

This is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

0:42:360:42:40

'I was very, very happy with the palette colour.

0:42:400:42:43

'It was very relaxing. It was a lot of air in there.'

0:42:430:42:46

And now it's furniture time. "Furniture time."

0:42:460:42:49

Guys, you're miracle workers, man.

0:42:590:43:01

Thank you.

0:43:010:43:03

Right here against the wall.

0:43:030:43:05

I got excited as I started to see it come together.

0:43:050:43:07

Closer to the wall, to the window. Perfect.

0:43:070:43:10

'We have a lot to do in the bedroom and certainly have a lot to do

0:43:100:43:13

'in Cyndi's red room. But I'll be OK.'

0:43:130:43:16

Something's gone. It was right here yesterday.

0:43:160:43:20

Listen, who was here watching all this stuff?

0:43:200:43:23

It was here and it's gone.

0:43:230:43:25

So should I just call Franc and say it was stolen?

0:43:250:43:27

-Because it's not here any more.

-Let's keep unloading stuff

0:43:270:43:30

-and I bet we'll find it.

-No, it was here, I put it right here.

0:43:300:43:33

I'm sure we'll find it, nobody stole it, Cyndi.

0:43:330:43:35

Relax, don't yell at people.

0:43:350:43:37

This ottoman that was this long, I signed...

0:43:370:43:40

-Personally he gave it to me.

-Cyn!

-It was taken.

0:43:400:43:43

-Don't yell at him.

-Go easy, Cyndi. Take it easy. Don't yell.

0:43:430:43:47

And it was right across here and it's not here any more.

0:43:470:43:50

Tell her that we'll find it, tell her to relax.

0:43:500:43:52

-Cyndi.

-What has typically happened, Bret, is that she turns people

0:43:520:43:56

-against us.

-I get it.

0:43:560:43:58

We need these workers.

0:43:580:43:59

Cyndi can go from being the sweet, loving Cynd and just so sweet

0:43:590:44:03

and then at a moment's notice she'll turn and snap on you.

0:44:030:44:05

Hook this... Wait, wait. That's ugly. Stop!

0:44:050:44:08

No. Leave it on the floor.

0:44:080:44:11

-OK, Cyndi?

-I'm sorry.

-Please don't talk disrespectfully to these guys

0:44:110:44:14

-who are working their ass off for us, OK? Please.

-All right.

0:44:140:44:17

Please. I'm trying to win this thing.

0:44:170:44:20

This was the first task that I felt really connected with Cyndi.

0:44:200:44:23

'But in the end, Cyndi can cost you. She's sort of a loose cannon

0:44:230:44:27

'and managing Cyndi takes energy and time.'

0:44:270:44:30

I now completely understand your world.

0:44:300:44:34

Remember that in the boardroom.

0:44:340:44:36

-THUD

-Careful, please!

0:44:430:44:45

Be careful, please.

0:44:450:44:47

'We just had under an hour left to put the furniture together,

0:44:470:44:50

'to make the beds, without getting it covered in paint cos the walls'

0:44:500:44:55

were all still wet. It was literally a race against time.

0:44:550:44:58

This room is done.

0:44:580:45:01

This is the first room done, it's the guest cloakroom.

0:45:010:45:04

We just wanted to try and brighten it up a bit. The painting is not great

0:45:040:45:10

but it's just the effect. And then you have to close the door

0:45:100:45:13

cos I can't get it dirty!

0:45:130:45:15

-What do you think about taking these off?

-I think we should.

0:45:160:45:20

'My focus was on the kitchen. My idea was to give ourself'

0:45:200:45:23

a bit more depth in terms of vision, so I took the doors off

0:45:230:45:27

'a couple of the cupboards, which of course is a risky thing to do.

0:45:270:45:32

'When you walk into a kitchen with all the most beautiful equipment in the world,

0:45:320:45:35

'if there's no food in it, it doesn't look like a real kitchen.

0:45:350:45:39

'You need to have some fresh fruit - some bred and some muffins.

0:45:390:45:42

'And we did that. I think the kitchen looked beautiful.'

0:45:420:45:45

I'd love to spend a day in that kitchen.

0:45:450:45:47

We're going to do it. We're going to do it. We're going to do it.

0:45:470:45:52

We're getting there.

0:45:520:45:53

30 minutes to go.

0:45:560:45:58

Can you put this guy right in the middle...

0:45:580:46:00

You don't want that between there for them to set their tea or whatever they would do?

0:46:000:46:04

That looks cool there.

0:46:040:46:05

Well, it would be right under your... Yeah, OK.

0:46:050:46:08

-That would work.

-You see what I mean?

0:46:080:46:10

'I like living in a fantasy world.

0:46:100:46:12

'That's why I made that room as much of a fantasy as I could.

0:46:120:46:15

'I love odd things and interesting touches.'

0:46:150:46:19

And the room really did come alive with fun.

0:46:190:46:22

'And I thought it was fantastic.'

0:46:220:46:25

-Are they literally down the street?

-'Yes.'

0:46:250:46:28

I'll be down at the front desk.

0:46:280:46:29

I got the call. Photos are downstairs.

0:46:290:46:32

I've got to get the photos, get them up on the wall.

0:46:320:46:34

Come on. Come on.

0:46:340:46:35

'I figure, what could possibly go wrong?'

0:46:350:46:37

Well, the elevator doesn't show up.

0:46:370:46:39

'But nothing was stopping me.

0:46:440:46:46

'I flew down 18 flights of steps to get these pictures.'

0:46:460:46:50

-You're the best, man.

-My pleasure.

0:46:540:46:56

My brother, thank you. Thank you.

0:46:560:46:58

'So, I get the hand-off,

0:46:580:46:59

'and I have to run 18 flights of stairs back up.

0:46:590:47:02

'It was insane. I'm sweating profusely.'

0:47:020:47:05

So, here we go. Let's get this up.

0:47:070:47:09

Let's go. Here we go.

0:47:090:47:11

'This is the payoff, right?'

0:47:110:47:13

'I promised Holly I would get this done.

0:47:130:47:15

'And there it is - New York is on the wall.'

0:47:150:47:18

Our New York Zen den is complete.

0:47:180:47:21

Hold on. Wait for it.

0:47:210:47:23

Ah, Zen.

0:47:230:47:25

15 minutes!

0:47:270:47:29

Let's go! Let's go!

0:47:290:47:30

'I wanted to take all the garbage out, all the wrappings,'

0:47:360:47:40

so I was trying to find places to put it all.

0:47:400:47:43

-And then I'm like,

-"BLEEP

-it. Throw everything in the hallway."

0:47:430:47:47

Paint on the floor.

0:47:470:47:49

Got to get it off quick.

0:47:490:47:50

-Can you check your shoes?

-Big boss.

0:47:540:47:57

Who's got a light?

0:47:570:47:59

Time's up!

0:47:590:48:01

-I think it looks

-BLEEP

-amazing!

0:48:010:48:04

'So the task was over, the place was pretty much finished.'

0:48:060:48:10

It could have been better. It always could be.

0:48:100:48:13

But I was pretty happy with it.

0:48:130:48:14

I sort of looked around,

0:48:140:48:16

I was like "I guess we've kind of made it."

0:48:160:48:18

THEY LAUGH

0:48:180:48:22

I love you after this! I love you guys!

0:48:220:48:25

'Curtis comes up and gives me the biggest hug ever and thanks me,

0:48:250:48:28

'so I was like, "You know what?'

0:48:280:48:30

"We all bring something different, and it worked so well together."

0:48:300:48:34

I think that this is corporate yet funky.

0:48:340:48:37

If this was my apartment, I'd be happy to have people over.

0:48:370:48:40

-You would?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:48:400:48:43

No more fussing. Let's go, we're done.

0:48:570:49:00

I think we did a great job renovating the property.

0:49:000:49:03

Our concept is a Balinese-style Zen sanctuary.

0:49:040:49:09

When you walk in, the first thing you see

0:49:090:49:11

are really warm chestnuts and oranges and rusts

0:49:110:49:15

that evoke a real Zen feeling.

0:49:150:49:19

Then, as you go in to the bathroom,

0:49:190:49:21

we have cooler hues - the light blues.

0:49:210:49:23

The master bedroom was sea foam.

0:49:230:49:25

Green is really the colour of life, serenity, as well.

0:49:250:49:30

Cyndi's room is kind of wild and crazy,

0:49:300:49:32

so when you want to unleash your wild side,

0:49:320:49:34

you go to Cyndi's rock-'n'-roll Zen room.

0:49:340:49:36

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:49:360:49:38

Hello, everybody. How you doing?

0:49:380:49:40

-Hello.

-I'm Bret.

-Jonathan. How are you?

0:49:400:49:42

Of course, Jonathan. Come on in.

0:49:420:49:44

Hi. Good to see you guys again. How are you?

0:49:440:49:46

'Our judges, Jonathan Adler and Lee Curtis, came in.'

0:49:460:49:50

And we gave them a tour of our celebrity Zen retreat.

0:49:500:49:53

We're doing sort of a colour-therapy concept

0:49:530:49:56

where colour, obviously, invokes certain feelings.

0:49:560:50:00

And I think these warm tones and earth tones

0:50:000:50:02

make you feel warm like a giant hug when you walk in.

0:50:020:50:06

'Jonathan is tremendously talented. And he's a tough critic.'

0:50:060:50:10

But I felt like Jonathan

0:50:100:50:12

would definitely get the colour concept.

0:50:120:50:14

So this is our relaxing living-room area.

0:50:140:50:17

We like this area because it's very relaxing.

0:50:170:50:20

Definitely have our Mama Buddha here.

0:50:200:50:23

-Miss Buddha's fab.

-Isn't she sweet? We like her.

0:50:230:50:26

Follow us in to our sea foam-green sanctuary.

0:50:260:50:29

-Sea foam-green.

-I love this colour.

0:50:290:50:31

My mom has it all over her house, and I love it.

0:50:310:50:33

We decided to just keep it very minimal.

0:50:330:50:36

Make the colour on the wall the star.

0:50:360:50:38

-Do you want to look at our little Zen bathroom?

-Oh, yeah.

0:50:380:50:41

I wanted to point out to you, Bret took these photographs.

0:50:410:50:44

-It's from the Bret Michaels Collection.

-That's great.

-Thanks.

0:50:440:50:47

-If the music thing doesn't work out...

-I got a gig.

0:50:470:50:50

So, should we show you our final finale?

0:50:500:50:53

Cyndi, would you like to show them?

0:50:530:50:55

OK, you might want to come home from work

0:50:550:50:57

and really kick back in our rock-'n'-roll Zen den.

0:50:570:51:03

We felt like red brings out strong emotions,

0:51:030:51:05

and red is a very intense and rich colour.

0:51:050:51:08

And I thought Cyndi did a phenomenal job pimping it out.

0:51:080:51:11

-Good job.

-Nice. With the patent leather.

0:51:110:51:13

Yes. Patent leather.

0:51:130:51:15

That resists a lot of the juices

0:51:150:51:17

that come out of a celebrity night.

0:51:170:51:20

'I really, really thought our theme was strong.'

0:51:200:51:23

I hope Mr Adler and Lee think the theme was strong as well.

0:51:230:51:26

All right, guys. Thanks.

0:51:260:51:28

-Thank you.

-All right. See you later, bye.

0:51:280:51:30

I think that our apartment looked modern and clean.

0:51:330:51:38

It wasn't overloaded with tchotchkes,

0:51:380:51:41

and it wasn't offensive.

0:51:410:51:44

The celebrity room was a struggle.

0:51:440:51:46

It really was. It was the afterthought.

0:51:460:51:49

The one thing that I did want to do

0:51:490:51:52

was make it feel expensive

0:51:520:51:54

by putting in a few luxury items.

0:51:540:51:57

The bottom line is, I'm Project Manager.

0:51:570:52:00

I did what I wanted to do in that apartment.

0:52:000:52:03

'So it's really do or die.'

0:52:030:52:06

-Hello.

-Hello. This is Curtis.

0:52:060:52:08

-Pleasure to meet you.

-How are you?

-And this is Maria.

-Hi.

0:52:080:52:11

'I think that we pulled off the task

0:52:110:52:14

'and we did it well and we did it on time.'

0:52:140:52:16

And it's like, "Yeah. Oh, yeah. Bring in the judges."

0:52:160:52:21

So, I'll talk about the kitchen, being the chef.

0:52:210:52:23

We thought we'd open up the space a little bit

0:52:230:52:25

and we took doors off a couple of cabinets to give a bit of a depth.

0:52:250:52:29

And we filled it with beautiful stuff.

0:52:290:52:31

You can move straight through to the dining,

0:52:310:52:33

and these days we quite often sit at the sofa and eat, as well.

0:52:330:52:37

This coffee table does open up.

0:52:370:52:39

-So this actually folds up like that, see?

-So you have a tray.

0:52:390:52:42

-Fab.

-We wanted to keep it clean lines.

0:52:420:52:46

And we didn't want to put too much furniture into this space.

0:52:460:52:50

-Wow. This is the celebrity room.

-We just wanted some colour to pop.

0:52:500:52:55

This is kind of a media room.

0:52:550:52:57

-MARIA:

-Got your popcorn maker in the corner,

0:52:570:52:59

your big-screen TV, and so it's functional, as well.

0:52:590:53:02

The guest cloakroom.

0:53:020:53:04

We thought to give it more shelf space

0:53:040:53:06

by getting that unit.

0:53:060:53:08

And this is what would be the master.

0:53:080:53:12

Clean lines.

0:53:120:53:14

-It's still stylish.

-I don't see a dresser.

0:53:140:53:17

I just never use one.

0:53:170:53:18

I think they're old-fashioned looking.

0:53:180:53:20

'I don't think that Mr Curtis was impressed

0:53:200:53:23

'because I didn't have drawers.'

0:53:230:53:26

"Celebrities don't do that, Mr Curtis."

0:53:260:53:30

-All right, you guys. Thank you.

-Thank you very much.

0:53:310:53:34

'When it comes to something like this,

0:53:340:53:36

'it's down to personal taste.'

0:53:360:53:38

Who knows? You know, it's in the hands of the gods.

0:53:380:53:41

Lee, Jonathan, what did you think?

0:53:440:53:46

It's unbelievable to do what they did in 24 hours.

0:53:460:53:48

-What did you think about Rocksolid?

-I thought they were rock-solid.

0:53:480:53:51

When you walked in the door of the apartment, it looked expensive.

0:53:510:53:54

Curtis made the kitchen a very appealing kitchen.

0:53:540:53:57

They did a lot to make the rooms look bigger

0:53:570:53:59

by removing pieces but staying functional.

0:53:590:54:02

Yeah, the apartment felt huge.

0:54:020:54:04

But I got to say, their celebrity room fell short for me.

0:54:040:54:07

Like, there was nothing celebrity-roomish about it.

0:54:070:54:09

It was just another room.

0:54:090:54:10

That was supposed to be an important part of the challenge

0:54:100:54:13

and it seems like they just didn't really care about it.

0:54:130:54:15

One thing I did notice - they didn't have a dresser.

0:54:150:54:17

That was interesting for me cos a dresser's still,

0:54:170:54:20

you know, pretty much a common piece to have in a bedroom.

0:54:200:54:22

What about Tenacity?

0:54:220:54:24

With as much as they did and the colours they used, I think they shrunk the space.

0:54:240:54:27

I mean, there was so much going on that you felt a little constricted.

0:54:270:54:31

I guess they were trying to create a serene environment,

0:54:310:54:34

but it felt more cheap than Zen.

0:54:340:54:36

I think, on a colour level, where they fell down

0:54:360:54:39

was in that sea foam in the bedroom.

0:54:390:54:40

That was like, "W-What?"

0:54:400:54:42

Like, I don't know where they came up with that sea foam

0:54:420:54:45

and it was totally dissonant with the rest of the apartment.

0:54:450:54:47

But their celebrity room

0:54:470:54:49

was infinitely more celebrity-roomish.

0:54:490:54:51

So it was really nice to see personality and bold, bold gestures.

0:54:510:54:55

Interestingly, we found out halfway through the tour

0:54:550:54:57

that Bret had taken all those New York pictures.

0:54:570:55:00

-Oh, really?

-Yeah, they were really, really good.

0:55:000:55:02

I would put those in my apartment, absolutely.

0:55:020:55:05

Overall, who do you think won?

0:55:050:55:07

Based upon all the criteria, I think we'd have to agree.

0:55:070:55:10

-Holly...

-Yes.

-How'd your team do?

0:55:440:55:47

Under the circumstances, I thought we did phenomenally.

0:55:470:55:49

-What were the circumstances?

-Well, we lost one of our team members

0:55:490:55:52

cos he went off to do a concert

0:55:520:55:54

and he was so helpful, and I didn't want him to go.

0:55:540:55:57

What did you think of Cyndi's performance?

0:55:570:56:00

Oh, I thought Cyndi did a terrific job.

0:56:000:56:02

It was, um, a little difficult to focus her,

0:56:020:56:06

but I gave her one focus, which was our celebrity room.

0:56:060:56:10

And I could have used Bret

0:56:100:56:11

just to help me wrangle her a little bit more.

0:56:110:56:13

How did that come out, the celebrity room?

0:56:130:56:16

-How did it look?

-I loved it. It was a Cyndi explosion.

0:56:160:56:19

But is it something that commercially would rent?

0:56:190:56:22

Uh...perhaps, yeah. Depends on the client.

0:56:230:56:26

What did you think of Holly as a Project Manager, Bret?

0:56:260:56:29

I got to be honest - when we started,

0:56:290:56:31

I may have jumped to a conclusion real quick

0:56:310:56:33

that Holly wanted to do it cos she knew Jonathan Adler's work.

0:56:330:56:37

And the end result, she was fantastic.

0:56:370:56:39

In the beginning, we had a little bit of a snafu, let's just say,

0:56:390:56:43

cos I think she felt really under a lot of pressure.

0:56:430:56:45

-I didn't want to be Project Manager.

-She didn't.

0:56:450:56:47

-Who should have been Project Manager?

-Cyndi.

-And why wasn't she?

-I don't know,

0:56:470:56:51

but I felt like it wasn't my at-bat.

0:56:510:56:53

Bret just came off a huge win. I came off a win before

0:56:530:56:55

I thought it was Cyndi's turn. And all we hear Cyndi say is, "Nobody cares about the gays.

0:56:550:56:59

"No-one's looking out for the gays." And I thought she needed to step up.

0:56:590:57:02

And I thought it was a great opportunity for her

0:57:020:57:04

-to make some money for...

-What about that, Cyndi?

0:57:040:57:07

OK. Gloves off.

0:57:070:57:10

I thought that Holly...

0:57:100:57:12

Holly said she knew of the designer

0:57:120:57:15

that was going to come and judge. I don't.

0:57:150:57:17

And when I went with her, I tried to get her

0:57:170:57:21

to go with statues and things that were imaginative.

0:57:210:57:25

-Didn't you do that?

-I certainly did.

0:57:250:57:27

So it wasn't like she had to focus me.

0:57:270:57:28

What does this have to do with gays? Holly, what does this have to do...

0:57:280:57:32

I'm trying to figure that out myself!

0:57:320:57:35

Cyndi's charity's very important to her

0:57:350:57:36

and I thought, since I had come off a really big win

0:57:360:57:38

and he had won 140 for his charity, she had only won 20,000...

0:57:380:57:41

I think part of the reason of being here is to win for your charity.

0:57:410:57:44

Holly, did you get along with Cyndi on this task?

0:57:440:57:48

Uh, actually, I kind of fell in love with Cyndi on this task.

0:57:480:57:51

-We got along really well.

-I got her to laugh.

0:57:510:57:54

-We laughed.

-Why, is she not a laugher?

0:57:540:57:56

Really? I don't see you as that serious a person, Holly.

0:57:590:58:02

When it comes to this competition, and autism, I'm very serious.

0:58:020:58:05

-It's business. OK. I think that's good.

-Mm-hmm.

0:58:050:58:09

OK.

0:58:090:58:11

-Sharon.

-Yessie?

0:58:110:58:12

-How'd your team do?

-Fantastic!

0:58:120:58:14

Amazing!

0:58:140:58:16

And how are you getting along with Curtis?

0:58:160:58:18

-Much better.

-We love Curtis.

0:58:180:58:20

Oh!

0:58:200:58:21

Now I'm getting jealous. Now...

0:58:210:58:23

He brought it. He brought his "A" Game.

0:58:230:58:25

So you really... You think he's...

0:58:250:58:27

-You think he's a good guy now.

-He is. He is a good guy.

0:58:270:58:30

He's going to marry one of my daughters.

0:58:300:58:32

He's going to cook for me at Christmas. We love him.

0:58:320:58:35

-Sharon, you didn't like Curtis very much at one point.

-Oh, no.

-No, no.

0:58:350:58:39

Initially. And Maria certainly didn't like him.

0:58:390:58:42

And now you really like him a lot.

0:58:420:58:44

Yeah, because I'm a big-mouth old bat who's...

0:58:440:58:47

You're not old.

0:58:470:58:48

-"Ish."

-We're getting up there, but not yet.

0:58:480:58:51

And I just, you know - no tolerance, no tolerance.

0:58:510:58:54

And I open my mouth all the time.

0:58:540:58:56

And then I have to apologise for my bad behaviour

0:58:560:58:59

and realise he's fabulous.

0:58:590:59:01

How did you like working with them, Curtis?

0:59:010:59:03

I loved working with them. I had a lot of fun with Sharon.

0:59:030:59:05

-We went shopping.

-Who was better, Maria or Sharon?

0:59:050:59:08

Oh, they both really brought it in their own ways.

0:59:080:59:11

Maria worked super hard. Sharon, very resourceful.

0:59:110:59:14

She was on the phone as much as we were pegging it on the streets.

0:59:140:59:18

Both really stood out.

0:59:180:59:19

OK. Good.

0:59:190:59:22

-Mr LeFrak, my good friend.

-Yes, sir?

0:59:220:59:25

My good friend and for many years my good friend,

0:59:250:59:27

what did Jonathan Adler and Lee Curtis from BridgeStreeet

0:59:270:59:30

think of Rocksolid?

0:59:300:59:32

Well, they thought they did a rock-solid job.

0:59:320:59:35

-They did an excellent job.

-Yes!

0:59:350:59:37

Curtis did a great job putting the kitchen together.

0:59:370:59:40

They thought Sharon and he did a super job

0:59:400:59:44

in leverageing their celebrity status

0:59:440:59:46

to get about 100-some-odd-thousand dollars' worth

0:59:460:59:50

of free furnishings for the apartment.

0:59:500:59:52

And, you know, that was a very clever and effective way

0:59:520:59:55

to get a good job done, with one exception.

0:59:550:59:58

And that was that they thought the celebrity room

0:59:581:00:01

-fell a little short of what they had to do.

-Ah.

1:00:011:00:05

-Why, Richard?

-Missed the "wow" factor

1:00:051:00:07

that you would expect in a celebrity room.

1:00:071:00:09

It looked a little bit too much like an ordinary media room.

1:00:091:00:12

OK.

1:00:121:00:14

So, Don, let me ask you, how did Tenacity do?

1:00:151:00:17

Well, the executives that I met with,

1:00:171:00:20

you know, they really actually...

1:00:201:00:21

Jonathan Adler loved your photos, Bret.

1:00:211:00:23

-Tell him thank you.

-He thought you were a professional photographer.

1:00:231:00:27

I knew he'd love you!

1:00:271:00:29

-Mm-hmm!

-Big boy!

1:00:291:00:31

-He liked the room separator.

-Thank you.

1:00:311:00:33

They thought that was a nice touch.

1:00:331:00:35

They thought the Buddha was placed perfectly,

1:00:351:00:37

that Cyndi's celebrity room was fun, bold and original.

1:00:371:00:40

They wish they'd seen more of that out of Rocksolid.

1:00:401:00:44

The cons were that there was a bit too much going on.

1:00:441:00:46

The suite looked much more cheap than Zen.

1:00:461:00:50

-And they really didn't like the sea foam green.

-Oh, they didn't?

1:00:501:00:54

It was pretty aggressive for a green.

1:00:541:00:56

OK, so it's the moment of truth.

1:00:581:01:00

The fact is that

1:01:021:01:05

the executives felt very, very strongly

1:01:051:01:08

about one of the apartments. They thought it was brilliant.

1:01:081:01:12

They thought it was really amazing

1:01:121:01:15

that you did so much in a short period of time.

1:01:151:01:18

And they felt...

1:01:181:01:20

solidly...

1:01:201:01:22

...behind Rocksolid.

1:01:251:01:27

They just thought you were great.

1:01:271:01:30

They thought yours was OK, Holly, but not spectacular.

1:01:301:01:34

They thought Rocksolid was fantastic.

1:01:341:01:36

-Oh, dear!

-Whoa!

1:01:361:01:39

Big turnaround in a week, Mr Trump.

1:01:391:01:41

By the way, Donald,

1:01:431:01:45

I've decided to double the prize this week.

1:01:451:01:48

-I think we'll make it 40,000.

-That's very nice.

-Awesome.

1:01:481:01:52

-DON JR:

-That's great.

1:01:521:01:53

Thank you so much. Thank you.

1:01:531:01:55

-Happy to do it.

-Thank you.

1:01:551:01:56

So, Sharon, thanks to Richard

1:01:561:01:58

you're going to get 40,000 for your charity. What is it?

1:01:581:02:01

My charity is Cedars-Sinai Hospital,

1:02:011:02:04

Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Programme.

1:02:041:02:07

-That's a great group.

-Thank you.

-Congratulations.

-Thank you so much.

1:02:071:02:11

-And thank you, Mr LeFrak.

-You're more than welcome.

1:02:111:02:14

-It means a lot.

-OK, go ahead. Thank you.

1:02:141:02:16

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

1:02:161:02:18

Good job, guys.

1:02:181:02:19

-Great job.

-Thank you.

1:02:191:02:21

Well done, guys.

1:02:211:02:22

That's 40,000 free screenings for people.

1:02:241:02:27

-That's amazing.

-40,000 people.

-Wow.

1:02:271:02:30

OK, Tenacity...

1:02:301:02:32

Unfortunately, somebody's going to be fired.

1:02:321:02:35

Congratulations.

1:02:431:02:45

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

1:02:451:02:48

'I'm playing for the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Programme,'

1:02:481:02:52

associated with Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

1:02:521:02:56

'And it's so important for me personally'

1:02:561:02:58

because this hospital saved my life.

1:02:581:03:00

So, 40,000, and it means 40,000 colon-cancer screenings.

1:03:001:03:04

Yeah.

1:03:041:03:05

'I just want to make people aware'

1:03:051:03:07

and be able to help people get checked out.

1:03:071:03:11

You know, you've got to be checked.

1:03:111:03:13

-Cheers.

-Here's to your charity, honey. Well done.

1:03:131:03:16

Cheers. Thank you so much.

1:03:161:03:18

Here we go.

1:03:181:03:19

Holly, are you nervous? You seem to really want to win. Are you nervous?

1:03:191:03:23

I always want to win. That's why I came here.

1:03:231:03:25

-Are you nervous?

-Right now? No, not particularly.

1:03:251:03:27

-What about you, Cyndi?

-Maybe last week.

1:03:301:03:33

I feel anxious

1:03:331:03:34

and a little upset about everything.

1:03:341:03:38

The executives felt strongly, their apartment was better.

1:03:381:03:42

So you're not upset about being here wrongfully, are you?

1:03:421:03:45

-No, I was upset about something else.

-Tell me.

-No, I...

1:03:451:03:49

-You have to fight for yourself now because you could be a candidate.

-Good. I will. Fine.

1:03:491:03:53

Throughout this whole thing,

1:03:531:03:55

I was the one given all the shlep work,

1:03:551:03:59

and I was there carrying, humping, pulling the bags,

1:03:591:04:03

carrying the furniture in with the guys,

1:04:031:04:05

you know, doing all the grunt work.

1:04:051:04:08

But, Cyndi, why didn't you step up as Project Manager?

1:04:081:04:10

-Everybody says you should have.

-Because I don't have...

1:04:101:04:13

I do not furnish houses.

1:04:131:04:16

-Neither do I.

-I always work.

1:04:161:04:17

-You do so.

-None of us by trade are decorators or contractors.

1:04:171:04:21

Just cos I knew who Jonathan Adler was

1:04:211:04:23

doesn't mean I am Jonathan Adler.

1:04:231:04:25

I have not designed or decorated houses.

1:04:251:04:27

Yes, if someone shows me a fabulous Balinese bench,

1:04:271:04:30

I'll say, "Yes, I like that."

1:04:301:04:31

But that doesn't make me a designer by trade. I'm not.

1:04:311:04:34

Cyndi, the executives really like your work. They like your taste.

1:04:341:04:37

I don't know if you have good taste, but they loved your red room.

1:04:371:04:41

You've been a fashion icon in your own right for decades.

1:04:411:04:44

-But I've never furnished houses.

-Don't you think... But it translates across to design.

1:04:441:04:48

It's all a sense of style, right?

1:04:481:04:50

Especially if that sense of style has to do with celebrity.

1:04:501:04:53

Well, Holly, you're the Project Manager.

1:04:531:04:55

Why shouldn't I fire you? You lost. It wasn't really close.

1:04:551:04:59

You can blame Cyndi. You can blame Bret.

1:04:591:05:01

I'm not going to blame anybody. I'm just going to say that, yes...

1:05:011:05:04

But why shouldn't I fire you?

1:05:041:05:05

Because I came here to win.

1:05:051:05:07

I know, but they came here to win, too.

1:05:071:05:09

-Did you come to lose, Bret?

-Hell no.

-Did you come to lose, Cyndi?

1:05:091:05:13

-You say you came to win, that's just words.

-But you have opportunities.

-Holly, it's words.

1:05:131:05:17

You came to win, they all came to win.

1:05:171:05:18

Goldberg came to win and he got his ass kicked.

1:05:181:05:20

At the same time, I have to say, you are a fighter.

1:05:201:05:23

-I am.

-Would we say she's a fighter, Cyndi?

1:05:231:05:25

Yeah, but she's also a pain in the butt sometimes

1:05:251:05:28

because she's right, she's the boss and she does everything.

1:05:281:05:31

Wait a second. When Cyndi was Project Manager,

1:05:311:05:33

no-one could get a word out edgewise.

1:05:331:05:35

-Hon...

-She was more than bossy.

1:05:351:05:37

She was disrespectful to people.

1:05:371:05:39

-Holly...

-That was your project.

1:05:391:05:40

You had three people that said that.

1:05:401:05:42

-That's not true.

-This task, we got along fine,

1:05:421:05:45

but there were moments where I had to stop down

1:05:451:05:47

-and sort of babysit Cyndi.

-No, you didn't.

1:05:471:05:49

Bret saw that. I don't know if you want to say anything

1:05:491:05:52

-or you're just playing it cool...

-I'm just letting you talk. I've got plenty to say.

1:05:521:05:55

-But please finish.

-Bret, I'd like to hear what you have to say.

1:05:551:05:58

You've sort of been under the radar for this,

1:05:581:06:00

-and you missed a part of it.

-Right.

1:06:001:06:02

Who should I fire, Bret?

1:06:021:06:04

Um, well, let me state the situation first.

1:06:071:06:10

No. I want an answer, Bret, or I'm going to fire you.

1:06:101:06:12

-I'm going to give you one.

-If you don't give me an answer, I'm going to fire you.

1:06:121:06:16

I've... Cyndi's room was the best room in the house,

1:06:161:06:21

but Cyndi also... I knew what they meant,

1:06:211:06:24

and this is what her rose and her thorn is.

1:06:241:06:26

She talks a lot. I had very little time.

1:06:261:06:29

Who'd I talk to?

1:06:291:06:31

-Cos you got mad at the guys.

-I...

1:06:311:06:33

-You were firing at the guys.

-You were flat-out rude to them.

1:06:331:06:36

-You can be rude to people, Holly.

-Not when you need them

1:06:361:06:39

to get through with what you have to do.

1:06:391:06:41

Cyndi's best blessing in life is she is an absolute star.

1:06:411:06:44

You're funny, your stories, I love them.

1:06:441:06:46

I don't tell no stories. I don't even talk any more!

1:06:461:06:49

I'm not throwing you under the bus. But in the situation we're in,

1:06:491:06:52

-I could hang with you every day - it's fantastic.

-No, you can't.

1:06:521:06:55

Well, if you're asking me...

1:06:551:06:56

-Not any more he can't, right, Cyndi?

-No.

1:06:561:06:59

All right, let's leave Bret out of it for a second.

1:07:001:07:03

-You still haven't given me an answer.

-He didn't answer!

-I got you.

1:07:031:07:07

I'm going to ask you in a second.

1:07:071:07:09

Cyndi, if you were me, who would you fire?

1:07:091:07:12

Holly.

1:07:121:07:13

Why?

1:07:131:07:15

Because she's difficult. And because she's very negative.

1:07:151:07:19

But don't you find her very talented?

1:07:191:07:21

I think she's awesome. She dots all her dots.

1:07:211:07:24

But she's tough to work with.

1:07:241:07:26

-She's always doing all of it.

-That's hilarious.

1:07:261:07:28

-Hilarious.

-And so I think, I think...

1:07:281:07:31

And I did everything I... There's no pleasing her.

1:07:311:07:34

Holly, I assume you're not going to say Bret -

1:07:361:07:38

I assume you're going to say Cyndi.

1:07:381:07:40

Why would you fire Cyndi over yourself as Project Manager?

1:07:401:07:43

Because Cyndi is, like,

1:07:431:07:46

so difficult to direct and redirect.

1:07:461:07:49

She's got this unbelievable creative mind,

1:07:491:07:52

but it's just, it's all over the place.

1:07:521:07:54

And it's very hard to direct her.

1:07:541:07:56

When Summer was here, Summer was my Cyndi whisperer.

1:07:561:07:59

She was the one that was able to say things to her when Maria and I couldn't

1:07:591:08:03

because it was difficult to connect with her. When Sharon was here,

1:08:031:08:06

-Sharon would just say, "Shut the

-BLEEP

-up,"

1:08:061:08:08

and then that'd be it, you know? Cyndi would listen to her.

1:08:081:08:10

-She'd tell you to shut the

-BLEEP

-up, too, missus.

1:08:101:08:12

OK, which... No, she's never said that to me, but that's OK.

1:08:121:08:15

So, she would do that. And Bret was here.

1:08:151:08:17

I thought, "Bret and Cyndi, both rockers. They're able to connect with each other.

1:08:171:08:21

"He'll be the one able to redirect her

1:08:211:08:23

"and get her to be focused on what we're doing."

1:08:231:08:25

-"Redirect" me?

-And even he...

1:08:251:08:27

Even he at one point just walked up and said, "I can't."

1:08:271:08:31

And yet she did the best room.

1:08:311:08:32

She did a room that I allowed her to do

1:08:321:08:34

-and that I...

-There we go!

1:08:341:08:36

I did! Well, I charged you with that.

1:08:361:08:38

"Allowed"! That's how it's always been!

1:08:381:08:40

That's what Project Managers do, honey.

1:08:401:08:42

Even when I was the Project Manager, you sent me out!

1:08:421:08:44

We're talking about this. Since you went through this whole mea culpa

1:08:441:08:48

-that you don't understand interior decor.

-I lost my temper, I'm sorry.

1:08:481:08:52

And yet she came up with the best room of everybody.

1:08:521:08:54

-I gave her...

-No, she said, "Paint the room red."

1:08:541:08:56

-I delegated...

-She came up with the best room.

1:08:561:08:58

You're saying that she said to paint it red?

1:08:581:09:01

-She said she wanted a red room.

-Yes.

1:09:011:09:02

So are you giving Holly credit for the room?

1:09:021:09:05

She said she wanted a red room.

1:09:051:09:06

I said, "I want a red room, and I want you to do it, Cyndi.

1:09:061:09:09

"This is where you shine." And that's where I put her in.

1:09:091:09:12

Cyndi, it doesn't seem, tactically, that was a smart thing to say -

1:09:121:09:15

everyone gave you credit for the room

1:09:151:09:17

and that was the best thing of the entire apartment.

1:09:171:09:19

I was with her the whole time at the prop house and she ran everything by me.

1:09:191:09:23

The thing that Holly's trying to say is

1:09:231:09:25

that, yes, Cyndi's room was great,

1:09:251:09:28

but Cyndi's not a good team player.

1:09:281:09:30

But she inspires so much.

1:09:301:09:33

Cyndi, why would you have said that

1:09:341:09:36

-the red was her idea?

-Cos I'm honest.

1:09:361:09:38

-Cos I'm honest.

-You are honest. Maybe too honest, in a certain way.

1:09:381:09:41

Here you are getting all this credit.

1:09:411:09:43

Bret, wouldn't she have been better off just not saying anything?

1:09:431:09:46

What, lying?

1:09:461:09:47

You're not lying if you don't say anything.

1:09:471:09:50

I would have probably kept my mouth shut in that situation.

1:09:521:09:55

But what I want to say in Holly's defence for one second,

1:09:551:09:59

I must state that Holly having to deal with

1:09:591:10:01

both of us of creative minds,

1:10:011:10:04

I'm hard to direct when I was on that team.

1:10:041:10:05

-You're hard to direct, apparently.

-You're not hard to direct.

1:10:051:10:08

-You were very effective.

-Thank you.

1:10:081:10:10

But you had your hands full, no matter what.

1:10:101:10:12

And then in the morning, you were wishing it wasn't you.

1:10:121:10:16

You had your hands full.

1:10:161:10:17

Once I took it on, I took it on.

1:10:171:10:19

-You got it on.

-I was just shocked that she didn't step up.

1:10:191:10:22

But once I took it on, I did.

1:10:221:10:23

I think she did step up, though, in all fairness.

1:10:231:10:26

She did a room that everybody loved.

1:10:261:10:28

She did a room that was fantastic by every standard.

1:10:281:10:30

You may have picked the paint, but...

1:10:301:10:32

I didn't just pick the paint.

1:10:321:10:33

She ran everything by me, asked me about everything.

1:10:331:10:36

-Because you're the Project Manager.

-That's right.

1:10:361:10:38

And I had five other rooms to think about.

1:10:381:10:40

-OK, I'll ask you this.

-I was helping you with those five other rooms, missus.

1:10:401:10:44

-Mmm.

-Oh, bull

-BLEEP,

-I certainly was!

1:10:441:10:46

-You undid stuff, but as far as vision...

-No, I didn't undo stuff.

1:10:461:10:48

I went and said, "This Buddha, Holly.

1:10:481:10:51

"Look at this chair. Put some colour in."

1:10:511:10:53

Yeah, but it just...

1:10:531:10:55

The way you work, it's like it takes twice as long

1:10:551:10:58

to get you on task as anyone else.

1:10:581:11:01

-Oh, brother!

-I'm going to ask you to step out just for a minute, please.

1:11:011:11:04

Just step out. I want to speak to Richard and Don.

1:11:041:11:07

Tough decision. Not easy.

1:11:081:11:10

No, it never is.

1:11:101:11:12

It's tough.

1:11:181:11:19

I'll tell you one thing. All three of us want to stay here.

1:11:221:11:24

-Cyndi's a fighter, you're a fighter.

-We wouldn't be here up to this point

1:11:241:11:28

-if we didn't want to stay.

-Right.

1:11:281:11:29

Or we would have just sat in there and not said anything.

1:11:291:11:32

I'm going to give you my two cents. They've been too easy on me in there.

1:11:431:11:47

They're never easy on me. Something is too off.

1:11:471:11:50

Like, I love it better when I get my balls busted.

1:11:501:11:53

I feel more at home.

1:11:531:11:55

They haven't busted my balls at all in there.

1:11:551:11:57

Something stinks for me. I haven't put my finger on it yet.

1:11:571:12:00

Richard, what do you think?

1:12:021:12:03

In my opinion, Bret took off. I'd fire Bret.

1:12:031:12:06

-Don, what would you do?

-You know, I was going to say Holly

1:12:061:12:09

until Cyndi said, "Holly was the person

1:12:091:12:11

"who gave me the inspiration for everything that was great about my part of the project."

1:12:111:12:15

I think that was just an incredible tactical error.

1:12:151:12:17

-I don't know how you can keep her after that.

-Very interesting. Amanda, let them in.

1:12:171:12:21

Yes, sir.

1:12:211:12:22

Let me get the door for you all.

1:12:251:12:27

Sit down, please.

1:12:341:12:36

All right, let me ask you this. Should I fire Bret...

1:12:391:12:42

Should I fire Cyndi, or should I fire you, Holly?

1:12:421:12:46

I think you got to fire Cyndi.

1:12:461:12:48

-I think he got to fire you.

-I'm way more focused.

1:12:481:12:51

I'm more focused.

1:12:511:12:52

I'm easy to direct. It's hard to redirect her.

1:12:521:12:55

She has snapped at and been so rude

1:12:551:12:57

to so many people that we needed in task,

1:12:571:12:59

including these lovely, gorgeous guys

1:12:591:13:02

that were there to help us.

1:13:021:13:03

I literally said to you, "Please do not yell at them."

1:13:031:13:05

Because when the chips are down, when situations are hard,

1:13:051:13:08

you got to be able to understand and be nice

1:13:081:13:10

-to the people that you're delegating work to.

-Bret, was Cyndi rude?

1:13:101:13:13

There was a couple times where she, in passion...

1:13:131:13:16

Was she rude or was she just a leader,

1:13:161:13:18

like, you know, "I want this done"?

1:13:181:13:20

There's a difference between being tough and smart

1:13:201:13:23

and being rude and stupid, right? Was she rude?

1:13:231:13:26

I wouldn't say rude,

1:13:261:13:27

but I'd say she was pretty aggressive with them

1:13:271:13:29

and more than we needed them to be.

1:13:291:13:31

She needs a little more honey in her than vinegar.

1:13:311:13:33

She alienates people that are just there to work for us.

1:13:331:13:36

But, Holly, she did the best room.

1:13:361:13:39

But I gave her the idea for the room.

1:13:391:13:41

-Oh, bull

-BLEEP,

-you said red!

-And I dele...

1:13:411:13:43

Cyndi, you told us that that was her idea.

1:13:431:13:46

-She said red! She said red!

-Correct.

-As the Project Manager...

1:13:461:13:49

No, and then I said, "I'm done up to here with the safe stuff,"

1:13:491:13:53

and I finally went in and said, "Let's have some freakin' fun

1:13:531:13:56

-"and bring the

-BLEEP

-damn patent-leather furniture in."

-Right.

1:13:561:14:00

-"And make it fun."

-And I was right there the whole time.

1:14:001:14:02

Saying, "Yes, let's do that." But they're talking about this room,

1:14:021:14:06

which was the best room in the house.

1:14:061:14:08

And I was right to put you in charge of that room -

1:14:081:14:10

-that was something they liked.

-You're taking credit for my work now.

1:14:101:14:13

-And I should be fired?

-I have to take credit for everything

1:14:131:14:16

-because I'm Project Manager.

-So you should be fired.

1:14:161:14:19

You should be, because it's very difficult...

1:14:191:14:21

-Cyndi, should you be fired?

-No.

1:14:211:14:23

In all fairness, Holly, whether you like Cyndi or not -

1:14:231:14:26

you obviously don't like her much...

1:14:261:14:28

-No, I do like her. It's just hard to work with her.

-She's got a great...

1:14:281:14:31

Yeah, but, you know, all genius are...

1:14:311:14:33

Did you ever hear that - Broadway shows -

1:14:331:14:34

He's not easy to work for, either.

1:14:341:14:36

The most brilliant actors and actresses on Broadway,

1:14:361:14:40

they say, are the most difficult, OK?

1:14:401:14:42

I mean, people are difficult

1:14:421:14:44

-if they have a certain intelligence.

-Yeah.

1:14:441:14:46

When you disenfranchise people, they don't work for you

1:14:461:14:49

and that makes it more difficult for you to achieve the task.

1:14:491:14:51

That's what I had to work with. And Bret got a taste of it and he's being all cool now,

1:14:511:14:55

but, ooh, yesterday was a whole other story.

1:14:551:14:57

-I think that...

-I'm just letting you talk.

1:14:571:14:59

-I know you are, Bret.

-I'm listening.

1:14:591:15:00

-You got to be able to...

-I don't think you're that easy, Holly.

-I've said my peace.

1:15:001:15:04

I've said my peace.

1:15:041:15:05

Holly, can Bret keep up with you two?

1:15:051:15:07

Well, he was doing a better job in the apartment.

1:15:071:15:10

-In the room, he's being diplomatic.

-I'm not knocking it, Bret,

1:15:101:15:12

but I'm watching these two go at it and you're sort of sitting

1:15:121:15:15

and Mr LeFrak said, "Why not fire Bret?"

1:15:151:15:19

-Let me start by this. I...

-And I wouldn't have thought of it, frankly, but he's right.

1:15:191:15:22

I'm watching these two go at it. They have unbelievable spirit.

1:15:221:15:26

-Right.

-You weren't here but in all fairness,

1:15:261:15:28

-you had our permission, so I can't do it on that.

-Right.

1:15:281:15:31

But I wonder, can you really keep up with them?

1:15:311:15:34

Unfortunately, I'm overly passionate about what I feel.

1:15:341:15:37

I keep my temper down because when it blows, it's awful.

1:15:371:15:40

And so what I'm saying is

1:15:401:15:42

that I focus my energy and my passion.

1:15:421:15:45

I had to run 18 flights of stairs...

1:15:451:15:47

Yeah, but you don't have the same energy or passion

1:15:471:15:49

-as Cyndi or Holly right now.

-I do have the same.

1:15:491:15:52

-I'm being respectful.

-I don't think so. I don't know.

1:15:521:15:55

Temperature's getting pretty warm at the other side of the table.

1:15:551:15:58

I-I feel I gave 1,000%.

1:16:001:16:02

In 48 hours, I slept two hours to get back here.

1:16:021:16:05

But, Bret, I love what I see from these two in terms of passion.

1:16:051:16:08

She won in terms of the room.

1:16:081:16:10

You did nice photographs, but photographs are photographs.

1:16:101:16:13

You didn't do it to the same extent.

1:16:131:16:14

But she really did do a good job with that room.

1:16:141:16:17

-Don't you agree?

-Great job. But I was painting the wall and taking pictures out the window

1:16:171:16:21

while I'm doing this. I'm time managing,

1:16:211:16:23

running 18 flights of stairs, taking photos. I don't know what more I could done.

1:16:231:16:26

Could you see Bret being fired, Holly?

1:16:261:16:29

You know what I'm saying.

1:16:291:16:31

Whether you like Cyndi or not, and you don't like her much,

1:16:311:16:35

but you know what, she's got a great artistry,

1:16:351:16:37

-a great uniqueness.

-She does, but I'd never hire her to work for me.

1:16:371:16:40

I wouldn't hire you either, Miss Thing.

1:16:401:16:42

We're talking about for this particular task.

1:16:421:16:44

For this task, I loved what she did and I gave her the rope to do it.

1:16:441:16:48

And Bret, I just...

1:16:481:16:50

I want Bret just to be... Look. Bret's going to be who Bret is.

1:16:501:16:53

But I want Bret to be as strong about what he felt...

1:16:531:16:56

Is Bret as strong as Cyndi?

1:16:561:16:59

I thought he was effective during the task,

1:16:591:17:01

-but now he's just...

-Not very effective now.

1:17:011:17:04

What have I not said, Holly?

1:17:041:17:06

I don't know, it just seems to me that you're not very effective.

1:17:061:17:10

-I just want you to be...

-I disagree 1,000%.

1:17:101:17:12

What I'm saying is, Holly came out of the box not wanting to do it.

1:17:121:17:15

When she accepted the task, she did a fantastic job.

1:17:151:17:18

I did everything I could do, everything you could do,

1:17:181:17:21

and then let me say the one key element we're all missing.

1:17:211:17:23

She did one room. We did five or six.

1:17:231:17:25

-BLEEP!

-I helped her with every freakin' room!

1:17:251:17:28

I walked through courts with her!

1:17:281:17:29

-But I didn't see that part.

-I walked through the prop house with her.

1:17:291:17:33

We spent two or three hours in that prop house

1:17:331:17:36

focusing on your one room, which in the end paid off,

1:17:361:17:39

but I sat there and allowed that.

1:17:391:17:41

I made sure that, as Project Manager,

1:17:411:17:42

I helped direct you with that.

1:17:421:17:44

Look, I just felt like it was a very difficult task

1:17:441:17:48

in the time we had, and I did the best I could.

1:17:481:17:50

Bret, let me ask you this.

1:17:501:17:52

Do you have the same energy that these two have?

1:17:521:17:54

Both of them have a lot of energy. I feel I have just as much energy.

1:17:541:17:57

I feel that my place sometimes when they're having this discussion

1:17:571:18:00

-is not for me to butt in.

-But it is. When I ask a question, "Who should I fire?"

1:18:001:18:06

and you say, "Oh, I love Holly so much. I love Cyndi so much.

1:18:061:18:09

"They're so great and wonderful," it's like...

1:18:091:18:12

-No, I was just trying...

-Who should I fire?

1:18:121:18:15

Cyndi.

1:18:191:18:21

-Why?

-Because her time-management

1:18:221:18:24

and my time-management skills are not great,

1:18:241:18:27

and I think I'm bad and I think that she's worse.

1:18:271:18:29

But she's very creative.

1:18:291:18:31

And I think that Holly did a better job of managing our time.

1:18:311:18:34

Holly, do you think I should fire Bret?

1:18:341:18:36

No. I really don't.

1:18:371:18:39

And I didn't think

1:18:391:18:41

that you could even factor in the fact that he wasn't there.

1:18:411:18:43

But as I've been Project Manager three times,

1:18:431:18:46

there have been people who haven't been there.

1:18:461:18:48

So that's been an issue in trying to pick up the slack.

1:18:481:18:51

But I just was surprised with how well Bret came through.

1:18:511:18:54

And on the other hand, I think Cyndi

1:18:541:18:56

is very difficult to deal with.

1:18:561:18:57

In all fairness, Cyndi,

1:19:021:19:03

this is not the first time that this has come up.

1:19:031:19:06

And the thing I didn't like

1:19:061:19:08

was that I thought you did the room.

1:19:081:19:10

I thought it was your conception, your everything, including the colours and all.

1:19:101:19:14

But why did you tell me that it was Holly's idea to make the room red?

1:19:141:19:18

-She...

-And that was - excuse me.

1:19:181:19:20

That was one of the things that the executives liked so much.

1:19:201:19:23

And you know what? We all want to be truthful.

1:19:231:19:25

-Why? Cos I was truthful.

-You were very truthful.

1:19:251:19:28

I wouldn't throw her under the bus -

1:19:281:19:30

-I found her very difficult.

-I respect your truthfulness.

1:19:301:19:32

You didn't have to bring it up - that wouldn't be untruthful.

1:19:321:19:35

They liked Bret's pictures and the red room.

1:19:351:19:37

And the fact that you gave up, that you gave up the fact

1:19:371:19:40

-that Holly's idea was the red room...

-No!

1:19:401:19:42

Cyndi, I'm a big fan of yours. I love your music.

1:19:421:19:44

I love you. I think you're an amazing woman.

1:19:441:19:46

But why did you bring up the fact that it was Holly's idea?

1:19:461:19:50

Because it was true!

1:19:501:19:52

OK. Cyndi, you're fired.

1:19:521:19:54

-All right.

-Thank you. Thank you.

1:19:591:20:01

Get out. Thank you.

1:20:021:20:05

-Bye-bye.

-Bye, Cyn.

1:20:171:20:19

Cyndi, I don't want to leave like this.

1:20:191:20:22

-I'm leaving.

-I know.

-It's like high school, Bret.

1:20:221:20:24

-It's like

-BLEEP

-high school.

-It's not personal.

1:20:241:20:27

-What I found personal was time management, and that was bull

-BLEEP

1:20:271:20:30

-and I found it really difficult...

-My time management sucks.

1:20:301:20:32

That's all right. It's fine. I'll see you.

1:20:321:20:36

All right.

1:20:361:20:38

-That wasn't easy.

-No. That was a tough choice.

1:20:441:20:47

Definitely tough, but you can't make tactical errors like that and make it through to the end.

1:20:471:20:52

I do not think Donald made the right decision.

1:21:231:21:26

It was Holly's apartment they didn't like, not my room.

1:21:261:21:29

I think Holly talks out of both sides of her mouth.

1:21:291:21:33

She can flatter people

1:21:331:21:34

but behind their backs, she can "Chh!"

1:21:341:21:37

Now that I'm not there, let's see how it goes without me.
