Celebrity Apprentice: Piers Vs. Omarosa - VIDEOS

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 15th 2008 10:02AM
Lipstick JungleA few words to describe the celebrity version of NBC's The Apprentice: drama, tempers, egos, backstabbing, bitching, arguing, egos and... more egos! This week, the bruised egos are those of America's Got Talent's Piers Morgan and of The Apprentice (Season 1) Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth. Since the beginning of the season, both have been strong and opinionated players on their respective teams. Even if they didn't have to work together, Piers and Omarosa were pretty vocal about what they thought of each other. This week, hell broke lose when Trump decided to mix up the teams and the enemies ended up, you guessed it, on the same team!

Omarosa, who supposedly approached Piers before the series began to have a showmance, was clearly not impressed with the new teams but kept her cool while still in front of Trump. Piers, on the other hand, whined about having to be on the same team as Omarosa. Trump, who decided who would be on each team, clearly put the two together to cause more tension and friction so that they could use that footage to promote the show and maybe attract new viewers who would tune in to see how that pairing would turn out. As expected, it was ugly yet entertaining.

Omarosa admitted later in the episode that she was abusive to Piers. During this week's installment, she called him a scum and all sort of other names that should better be left unsaid in this post. But where Omarosa crossed the line -- and I have to side with Piers here -- is that she attacked his family. "Your children are so disappointed in you," she told him right to his face. She also told him that he was a terrible father. When asked about the Omarosa and Piers vocal banter, Lennox Lewis admitted that some things the woman said were nasty and mean. You can't always work with people you like but you have to keep your cool, and Omarosa lost it as soon as the teams left the boardroom. She clearly went too far this far.

Piers is no angel either. As you may recall, he got Vincent to resign and Stephen Baldwin ended up switching teams because he couldn't work with Piers anymore. This week, he was also vocal about Omarosa and didn't say the nicest things about her, either: she's a pointless and ghastly creature, she's a disgusting piece of slime, she's a bad smell, and the list goes on and on. What separates the two players is that Piers didn't attack Omarosa's family. He got very angry when she started to mention his family. In the boardroom he admitted that he lost his cool once she brought the kids into it.

Everyone, even Trump and his daughter, were hoping that Hydra would lose the task so Piers or Omarosa could be fired. But Piers, as project manager, knew how to get the needed money to win: contacts. It paid off and Hydra won. Knowing that he needs to keep Piers and Omarosa as long as he can to bring in ratings thanks to the controversy they bring, Trump sent Omarosa back to Empresario. The worse team winning ended up in having Trump do a first: fire no one. Empresario worked really well together and no one deserved to be sent packing.

What do you think about the Piers and Omarosa ordeal? Comment and vote below Haven't seen them in action? Check the two videos where you see them at their worse. As The Apprentice motto says: "It's nothing personal. It's just business." Is it?

Personally, I like Omarosa...this is reality television, you have all kinds of "abusive" behavior going on, there's really nothing so shocking about how she attacked Piers Morgan....when you consider how many people HE has attacked during his career in yellow journalism, I find it interesting that he seems to have a problem with taking it. Omarosa did not attack his children, she said nothing mean about them, she attacked PIERS by saying he was a terrible father, etc. I agree that she should not have said that, nor should she had implied that he was gay because she had no basis for those accusations, but all of that was still pretty tame. You always have to have someone you love to hate on reality television, in this case we had two of them, although I greatly commend Piers Morgan for his choice of charities, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (helping wounded soldiers and their families).

Omarosa is a piece of trash. She need a fucking life and need to know the meaning of R-E-S-P-E-C-T. However, I can hire her as cleaning lady since thats what she's good at. No one would hire a disgusting slimy cunt who create trouble to everybody.

omarosa was way over the line with her personal attacks and foul mouth. she had to be bleeped several times. she is very unprofessional and can't even dress appropriately for a business woman raising money for a charity. of course she really can't raise any money as it appears she has no contacts. Piers has his faults but can raise money. He also did not attack her family or use foul language except to repeat what Omarosa said. She also got in his face and stood way to close to demean him. In my business you respect a person's personal space and don't get into someones face. Stay at least an arm's length away or we call the police. And again this season, Omarosa lies constantly, on t.v.where we all see it and can replay it. She won't be hireable at all after this. I hope a classier person like Lennx,Carol or Trace wins. I would root for Steven but something about his inappropriate laughter at times does make him seem like a hypocrite. He thinks things are funny at times and then rethinks his support. Who in America would want to work with "lady??? O" she's no lady and I don't think anyone can drive the ghetto out of her.

Mr. Trump can take Omarosa out of the ghetto, but he can't take the ghetto out of Omarosa.
She's not a celebrity so why was she even there? It was very hard to watch the show at all with her very abusive behavior.
She's ignorant trash!

If anyone got in my face the way Omaroso did with Piers I would have had to punch her face in. Not even taking into account the trash talking she was doing. Talk about someone getting in your personal space. She is so obnoxious she gave me a headache. I'll not be tuning in to this show until she is history, even though I am a reality show junkie.

I love Omarosa..and so does Trump. Even Ivanka likes her, she has a bit of them in her, and its why after all these seasons of the Apprentice, shes the only one still famous. As for Omarosa and Piers, give me a break guys, who started all this? Wasnt it Piers when he attacked her for spelling his name wrong? Piers is a former tabloid editor, he is use to trashing other people, but couldnt stand it when the tables were turned. Hats off to Omarosa, for doing what others, and often times, not even the UK HIgh court could do (Piers spent much of his career in and out of the High Court over various law suits). He also has a history, he almost sent Vinnie into having a heart attack, Vinnie chose to resign. Not to mention that Baldwin Guy. I think Omarosa is teh real deal, she didnt attach Piers Children, she attacked Piers...& thats why for the first time, he appeared deflated...and defeated. Welcome to Reality TV.

Omarosa with her dirt is a best fit for a Jerry Springer show. She used all kind of dirt to sabotage Hydra and also trashed your show. Mr. Trump how can you bring such a person on your show? I expected more class from it. You should fire her at the beginning of next show, she should not be allowed to continue not even for a minute. There should be no association between her and your show. Piers was right all the way. Omarosa should have never brought up his personal life. If she did what she did imagine what else is she capable of. She is a very dangerous, dirty person.

Trump is so desperate for ratings, that he'll actually pimp Omarosa for as long as possible. I'm almost certain she'll return for every future "Celebrity" Apprentice.

Omarosa really showed her UGLY Colors! She looked like an Ugly Whipped Black Pup! She is Dirty and Looks and I BET she Smells Dirty(I've Met Her)! Trump hit a New Bottom keeping that Black Slime! She has NO Business being on the Show, and YES Trump IS Pimping Her, maybe even Sleeping with Her, who Knows. That WOULD make sense why the Idiot is keeping the Black Cloud in the Show. Is she a Celeb?? NO WAY!! What can she do except Swear and Look and be Disgusting!! She Sucks BIG TIME!! Oh! Maybe that is why she is still there!! HMMMM
