This week on The Celebrity Apprentice 2012, Lisa Lampanelli let loose yet again in a nasty tirade against her fellow contestants and her mouth just gets fouler every week. Plus, one Project Manager’s injury could hold him back from success, or maybe just provide a convienant excuse for being lazy. So who got fired on The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 this week? Read on to find out!


The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 teams this week were tasked by puppeteer Brian Henson, son of Jim Henson, with creating and performing with original, adult puppets in an improv show.

Because the two teams are unbalanced due to the elimination of Lou Rerrigno last week, Donald Trump orders Clay Aiken to leave Team Unanimous and join Team Forte. Lisa Lampanelli is not pleased with this, which is hardly a surprise.

For the challenge this week, Lisa Lampanelli is the Project Manager for Team Forte. Paul Teutul, Sr. is the Project Manager for Team Unanimous. Lisa is, of course, a controlling, power-mongering Project Manager who verbally abuses her team members at any opportunity. Paul, on the other hand, is a lazy, not good for much Project Manager who just basically doesn’t seem to care what anyone is doing or not doing on his team.

Paul has to deal with a ‘back injury’ while his team creates and rehearses with their puppets. This involves doing a lot of sitting around and eating and drinking, which pisses off Aubrey O’Day quite a bit and annoys the rest of his team members.

Over on the other team, Lisa Lampanelli goes after Dayana Mendoza, getting seriously nasty and basically trying to make Dayana look like a pointless person that she has to make busy work for. Dayana is angry because she thinks Lisa is trying to get her fired by refusing to give her tasks to do and because she is a raving, disrespectful bitch.

Clay Aiken, meanwhile, thinks Lisa is just jealous, bitter and feels intimidated and threatened by Dayana’s hotness.

Back on the other The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 team, Aubrey decides the best way not to get eliminated is to work hard at being a ‘team player’ for the task. This earns her props from Arsenio Hall for throwing out a lot of ideas for the team to work with. Aubrey bitches about Paul’s laziness while basically applauding herself for being awesome.

In the end, the judges think both teams did a good job, but there were mistakes on both sides. Lisa says that if her team loses, she will not bring anyone back to the board room. She acts very upset and even starts crying (with rather fake tears and all) because she’s apparently just being seen as this terrible bad guy who ‘makes girls cry.’ Paul says he thinks his team did well but that Teresa was a weak player and he only took the PM job because no one else wanted it. He tells Arsenio he is safe from coming back in the boardroom because of how much he contributed and his versatility.

After discussing the results, the judges decide that although they thought there was too much sexualization with the puppets from Lisa’s team, they should be chosen as the winners and she gets $20,000 for her charity.

In the boardroom, Teresa basically throws Paul under the bus for being lazy and not doing much of anything. Aubrey says Paul was out of his comfort zone, but doesn’t attack him. Paul says he would not fire Aubrey because she did a great job but Teresa was not a strong contributor.

Donald Trump declares that Paul should have brought Arsenio back in the boardroom instead of Aubrey. For his final decision, he decides the celebrity who got fired from The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 this week is:

Paul Teutul, Sr
