(LOS ANGELES) — La Toya Jackson became the latest person to be fired on All-Star Celebrity Apprentice Sunday night.
Both teams were tasked with creating a soap opera-like stage performance to advertise Crystal Light drink flavorings, and to help, producers supplied both teams with one soap star apiece. Team Plan B got to work with Susan Lucci, while Team Power used the acting chops of Jack Wagner.
Tensions were high on both teams, with project manager Stephen Baldwin drunk with power as stage director on Plan B, while Omarosa immediately tangled with Power’s task boss La Toya Jackson. Both teams crafted their performances as typically over-the-top soap scenes, but Omarosa skipped out on rehearsals when a tabloid story regarding the death of her former fiancee Michael Clark Duncan broke.
She showed up to take her place backstage for the performance however, but despite some positive reaction, Team Power lost, giving the win and 50 thousand dollars to Stephen Baldwin’s team.
In the boardroom, inexplicably, Jackson brought back Brande Roderick and Dennis Rodman — not Omarosa — and for that, Donald Trump fired Jackson. In her exit interview, La Toya called Omarosa a snake, and again insinuated — as she did during the show — that she had a hand in Duncan’s death.
All-Star Celebrity Apprentice returns next Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.
