The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Recap: Lisa Lampanelli Plays Mind Games!

Last week on The Celebrity Apprentice 2012, Dayana Mendoza got fired by Donald Trump after her team failed to win a jingle-making challenge. Lisa Lampanelli, who repeatedly tortured Dayana with her nasty comments and insults, was quite pleased with the firing and smiled as Dayana made her exit. This week in our The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 recap, Lisa Lampanelli brings even more of her nasty attitude to the table but this time it is Teresa Giudice who is the primary target of her mind games.

Only five players remain competing to win the final prize for their charity. Who got fired on The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Sunday night? Read on in our recap of episode 12!


Please stop reading here if you do not want The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 spoilers about what happened Sunday night and who was fired!After the elimination of Dayana Mendoza, Lisa Lampanelli is way too excited and pleased. Teresa Giudice is worried that Lisa is going to be coming after her next and this is a very valid fear. The other remaining The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 contestants are Aubrey O’Day, Arsenio Hall and former American Idol alumni Clay Aiken.

The final five The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 cast celebrities learn their next assignment from Donald Trump. After visiting the Hearst Towers, home to one of the largest publishers worldwide, the celebrities find out they have to make an ad for the new CHI touch hair dryer for Elle magazine.

Lisa Lampanelli is selected as the Project Manager for Team Forte and Teresa Giudice is chosen for the Project Manager for Team Unanimous. We found out that tonight is a double elimination and two will be fired on The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 this week. In the challenge this week, Donald Trump is offering up $50,000, which will be matched by another $50,000 for a total of $100,00 for the charity prize.

The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 teams are instructed that Elle magazine is supposed to be sexy but not racy. They are also told the dryer is designed with NASA technology, which seems to inspire Aubrey O’Day to go with a futuristic zen theme. Theresa thinks the idea is great. Lisa Lampanelli, being the bitch she is, is all snarky and says she thinks the product does not have a futuristic vibe at all. Team Forte goes with a ‘under the surface’ theme.

Both of the teams have to negotiate for models and Aubrey O’ Day wants the redheaded model, which seems like a good move considering one of the excecutives they are working for was flirting with her earlier. Team Forte doesn’t have much concern about what models they use, Lisa Lampanelli just wants to screw with Teresa Giudice by pretending to like whatever models she wants. Arsenio Hall is totally aware of what crap Lisa is pulling.

Teresa Giudice thinks Lisa Lampanelli is a dirty, nasty bitch and can’t believe how low she is willing to sink. Clay Aiken laughs at it all because he also knows Lisa is just screwing with Teresa because she doesn’t really care about the models. Sitting here doing this The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 recap, I have to say, I think Lisa Lampanelli is the nastiest player to ever set foot on the series.

Lisa Lampanelli is just doing whatever she can to rip and rend Teresa Giudice in this episode of The Celebrity Apprentice 2012. She is a huge bitch. Teresa is a lousy negotiator and her team is pissed off at her. Aubrey O’ Day has to take over negotiations and when Eric Trump comes to check on the team, he sees this and thinks Aubrey is good but she is not the Project Manager and Teresa should be in charge. In the end Teresa ends up with a model she can’t use and so Audrey O’ Day steps in to be the model for the ad.

At the end of the day back in the boardroom, the executives thought both teams did well with the advertisement but think Team Forte did the better job. Lisa Lampanelli and Clay Aiken are given congrats by Donald Trump and sent back to their suite.

Teresa says Donald Trump should fire Aresenio Hall because he didn’t add much to the project. Arsenio takes offense and says he thinks Teresa is not qualified to judge his contributions and he did a lot she could not do. Teresa says she and Aubrey controlled the task and Arsenio Hall wants to know what the hell she thinks she contributed. Aubrey O’ Day wisely stays out of it by saying she doesn’t know what everyone did or not. Donald Junior tells Teresa there is a big difference between acting like you are the Project Manager and actually commanding like you are.

Teresa Giudice is fired from The Celebrity Apprentice 2012.

We still have one more elimination to go though!

While Lisa Lampanelli, Clay Aiken, Arsenio Hall and Aubrey O’ Day are celebrating being The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 final four, the phone rings. Donald Trump wants them back in the board room. When they get there, they are told they have to interview with John Rich and Marlee Matlin and at the end, someone else will be fired.

Everyone seems to think they did very well in their interview. Back in the board room, Donald Trump asks Lisa Lampanelli why she thinks she should be The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 winner. She says she is strong and can hold her own but is willing to admit when she makes a mistake. (Really?) Donald tells Lisa that both John and Marlee think she has a real problem controlling her emotions, but Lisa says that isn’t true. Trump isn’t having it.

Lisa Lampanelli is fired from The Celebrity Apprentice 2012.

Donald Trump tells the remaining contestants that one more will be fired… but we won’t find out who it is until next week!

That’s all she wrote for our The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 recap for episode 12. Join us here again next week when we find out who will be competing in the finals to take home the grand prize for their charity!

  1. Lisa tweeted during the show that Theresa and Aubrey were the “real” winners, suggesting that Aubrey is next one out!

  2. I’m so glad Lisa has finally been kicked off the show.  Everyone was so scared of this ugly (both physically and spiritually) bully. The Donald had to put his foot down and eliminate that monster.  She is not worthy of Celebrity Apprentice.  Lisa is a white version of NeNe.
