I love this show!
This year, Joan Rivers won...she's the new Celebrity Apprentice. She beat out Annie Duke.
Not bad for a 75 year old woman, I think.
She has such stamina and tenacity. I only wish for that kind of strength.
Here are a few favorite moments from this year's finale...
I loved Tom Green poking at Annie when he said, " You've let her get under your skin. Under your skin. Under your skin. Under your skin."
Over and over again, until she finally stopped bitching about Joan Rivers. That was a treat, because she really expended so much negative energy complaining about Ms. Rivers.
I think Joan's strategy to get under Annie's skin worked perfectly. It threw her off her game just a little, and it was enough.
I also loved Donald Trump telling Annie Duke that she had no idea whether her friends were Mafia or not.
This came from Donald, after Annie's constant complaining about Joan calling her friends Mafia.
My best friend doesn't like Donald Trump.
Her husband doesn't like him, either.
I disagree with them, because I have learned a lot from him, by listening to his business philosophy and by reading a couple of his books about business.
He's struggled with this show over the years, but this year it has risen above the rest and they are already re-signed for 2010.
Why do I love this show?
I find it interesting to watch how various personalities cope with the pressure.
Like Clint Black or Jesse James.
They refuse to engage in the process. Instead they just skim along the surface, coasting on everyone else's wake.
Others engage too much.
Like Annie Duke.
She took everything personally, refusing to step up above the nitty gritty that went on.
So, thanks for the entertainment this year, Mr. Trump! It was quite a ride.
Congratulations, Ms. Rivers...you rock, girl!
