Good luck with future apprenticeships!
I never watched an episode of The Apprentice -- in fact, Erika and I were steamed about the show because it meant that Scrubs had been moved. However, I'll admit to having some ex post curiosity about the show, particularly the debate about the sexual office politics that the initial weeks stirred up.
So I'm just going to reproduce this tidbit of Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth gossip from MSNBC's Jeanette Walls and leave it at that:

As far as I'm concerned, the best part about Omarosa was how Bush-Cheney Chairman Marc Racicot declined to offer her a job interview, even though he was impressed with her resume, because she mentioned her Clinton White House experience!posted by: Robert Tagorda on 04.29.04 at 04:27 PM [permalink]
Thanks to all that you feel is holy, living in the Philippines spares me from the TV tripe that is being produced Stateside. From the reports I have read on Omarosa I feel she would have made a great exec at the fomer Enron regimeposted by: Marc on 04.29.04 at 04:27 PM [permalink]
Yeah, but in the end it wasn't the sexy females who won right? In the end, it was a white male. To be fair, Trump does have that female assistant. But she comes across as no nonsense, was apparently appalled at the scheming female behavior, and herself won her job from Trump for being hard charging in business acumen - not flirting. This is the way of the world really. You can get some attention by acting like a bad girl, but in the end they hire the steady hand. Woman's empowerment by projecting hyper-sexuality is a dead end and a trap for women who want to get ahead.posted by: Oldman on 04.29.04 at 04:27 PM [permalink]
The Apprentice lack a decent storyline. :-\
“Some fellow contestants have accused Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth of lying when she said one of them used the N-word. “We tried and tried to calm her down, but she just kept saying ‘I’m not going on stage with that lie detector test’ then she just walked out."”
Omarosa’s charge of racism is probably an outright lie. Many blacks have learned to deceitfully use the race card to get ahead. My guess is that most of the time they are lying. How did the comedian Richard Proyor put it? He once did a skit where he’s screaming at a white traffic officer. He accuses the cop of racism. It didn’t work and Pryor still got a ticket. He then slyly looks at the audience and says “sometimes it works.”posted by: David Thomson on 04.29.04 at 04:27 PM [permalink]
