New Rule: Don’t try to tell Clay Aiken how to sing. That was a painful lesson learned by Dayana Mendoza on “Celebrity Apprentice,” when the “American Idol” fave turned against the beauty queen during a challenge that involved singing and song writing.
After more bullying (and crying) from Lisa Lampanelli, Dayana also faced the wrath of Clay in the Board Room after she critiqued his singing and tried to give him tips on stage presence. In her defense, she was the project manager and was trying to make herself matter in a challenge in which she was railroaded by her teammates, who claimed she was way out of her league and hampered progress. On the other hand, she should have had the common sense to trust Aiken, since, you know, he’s a singer for a living.
Their team ultimately lost the challenge, and so, after seven trips to the Board room (which may be an “Apprentice” record), Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza‘s reign on “Apprentice” was over as she was finally fired on Sunday night’s episode.
It was a long time coming: See how Dayana was finally dismissed in the clip above.
