Omarosa wanted a showmance
I'm not watching Celebrity Apprentice. I watched the first season of the show, and I actually liked the Martha Stewart version of the show, but there's no way I'm going to sit in front of my TV for weeks and watch Marilu Henner battle Stephen Baldwin.
And I also question the "celebirty" status of some of these people. Case in point, Omarosa. She's only famous for being on, well, The Apprentice, so I think that sort of makes the whole premise of the show bogus. Fellow castmate Piers Morgan, who is also a judge on America's Got Talent, tells The New York Post that Omarosa actually approached him when the show started and asked him if he wanted to have a "showmance." Morgan had no idea what the hell she was talking about, but she explained that it's a romance between two people on a reality show. Morgan just told her she was "pathetic" and "deluded."

I'm so glad this didn't happen, or we'd have to add "showmance" to our lexicon, which is just as much an annoying word as "blog." We'd also have to add "rolliance" (a romance/alliance on a reality show) and "platosticle," which is...um...a platonic relationship that involves testicles. Or something. I'm not quite sure, lost my train of thought there for a second.
And what would their new name be? We've had Brangelina and Vaughniston, so now we'd have to come up with something like Omamorgan or Peirosa to describe these two. The former sounds like a new cholesterol medicine, while the latter sounds like a planet from Star Trek. A magical, Utopian planet where reality shows are outlawed.
