The Monday Buzz: Gotti and Tiegs Square Off in ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Boardroom and More

It was a busy Sunday, but the show that always gets our attention when it comes back is “The Celebrity Apprentice.” It’s just too crazy for words, with B-list and worse celebs showing that they’re either tough enough to get to the end or they’re “tough in another way.” In other words, they get eaten alive. Either way, the road to get there is filled with enough craziness to make most “Real Housewives” seasons look like tea parties by comparison.

Last night’s season premiere showed that this season is shaping up to be a good one, and not just because Paul Teutul Sr. is already on record calling George Takei “meek.” Victoria Gotti‘s in the mix, and she’s got people on both teams on edge already. When women’s team leader Patricia Velasquez brought Gotti and Cheryl Tiegs back to the boardroom for elimination, the former supermodel didn’t stand a chance. And Tiegs didn’t have the energy to care, so she more or less volunteered to get fired by Donald Trump.

Two things we want to know: a) Has Cheryl ever watched the show? What was she expecting? and b) Where did Teutul get the $300k that won this for the men? If that wasn’t there, his team would have gotten spanked. You’re not allowed to kick in your own money on this show… right?
