I shouldn't be — I know I shouldn't be — but I'm just completely infuriated. Last night I watched The Celebrity Apprentice, which I know I've ranted about before but am about to do so again, and Lipstick Jungle (okay, I watched Lost too, but that I just loved, it didn't upset me at all).
On The Donald's show, which is becoming more ludicrous with every passing episode, Omarosa and Piers Morgan butted heads repeatedly last night. Piers is no saint, that's true, but Omarosa's attacks were beyond personal. Her attacks didn't just go after Piers, but went after his family as well. It was inane, it was childish, and they were even on the same team for this task.
Now, amazingly, their team won. Despite Omarosa's interrupting the entire task repeatedly and bringing in no money whatsoever on her own, the team won. In the boardroom, Piers explained exactly what Omarosa had said about him and how it was unacceptable. He was right. There's absolutely no reason that Omarosa should be attacking this man's family and his ability to raise his children. Frankly, had it been me, I would have hit her (for which, I'm sure I would have been fired). However, Trump, while acknowledging that the two of them shouldn't work together again, refused to step in and do something about Omarosa. He didn't even bother to admonish her for her actions.
One has to wonder if, looking back on the season, Trump now realizes how horrible she is? Maybe he's come to the same conclusion that surely everyone has by now, that Omarosa is no longer entertaining to watch, even as someone to root against. I think the man ought to issue an apology.
The other people that ought to apologize for yesterday are the writers of Lipstick Jungle. Last night there was a hubbub (or brouhaha, if you prefer) on the show about a tell-all book that was going to come out about Wendy (Brooke Shields's movie executive character). Apparently in the book there was a bit about how she postponed her child's third birthday party in order to work. When complaining about the unfairness of the attack against her, Wendy stated that if a man had canceled the birthday party it would have been okay, that no one would have complained or thought twice.
