Apprentice History Is Made!

It was almost criminal: On Thursday's The Apprentice, after overseeing an NYPD recruitment campaign that all but resulted in police-force walkouts, 31-year-old Elizabeth made history by becoming history without even the benefit of a final round in the boardroom! But she wears her infamous exit as a badge of honor, and TV Guide Online finds out why.
TV Guide Online: OK, just how stunned were you when Donald Trump fired you without the final boardroom finger-point-athon?
Elizabeth:
It was a shocker. But I made history, and that's how I like to do things! (Laughs) I gotta go big!

TVGO: My wife has been in the ad biz for 15 years, and she says the NYPD recruitment ad you came up with was frightening. Like, Stacie J. frightening.
Elizabeth:
Yes. It was bad. (Laughs) That's why I didn't want to put my name on it from the beginning. When I delegated the creative to Raj and Chris and Jen, I said, "Com read more

Apprentice Loser Still Talking

Say what you want about Donald Trump, but the dude can spot a weak link when he sees it. Case in point: On last Thursday's The Apprentice, the perpetual pink-slipper muzzled 26-year-old talkaholic Stacy Rotner after she proved herself doggone useless on the pet task. But as TV Guide Online's Michael Ausiello found out late Friday afternoon, it's going to take a lot more than a demoralizing defeat in the boardroom to silence this little havoc-wreaker.

TV Guide Online: Your suitcase was humongous. Were you hiding a body in there?
Stacy Rotner:
(Laughs) I come prepared; I brought a lot of clothes and shoes. I'm a big shoe person.

TVGO: Why do you think you elicit such a negative reaction from people?
Stacy:
I think people aren't used to someone who so steadily and readily voices their opinion. And coming from a woman, it's probably more shocking. And coming from someone who's little is probably even more sh read more

Dejected Apprentice Diva: ''I Sunk Myself"

The women of The Apprentice 2 continue to take a beating. On last Thursday's show, 32-year-old investment whiz Pamela became the latest Apex femme fatale to be discharged by The Donald. Just hours after her very public pink-slipping, the high-stylin' diva rang up TV Guide Online's Michael Ausiello to chat about bad haircuts, Carolyn's mean streak and a certain havoc-wreakin' munchkin named Stacy R. TV Guide Online: The Louis Vuitton knockoff you were sportin' on last night's show is winning raves. Where in Chinatown did you pick that up?Pamela: That's not funny, darlin'. That bag cost me a lot of money. TVGO: It's real?Pamela: Oh, yeah. TVGO: Oops.Pamela: That's like, $1600 a bag. TVGO: Wow.Pamela: Uh-huh. TVGO: Too bad it didn't score any points with The Donald. He was kinda rough on you in the boardroom. I mean, you lost by, what, six cents?Pamela: read more

Tommy Hilfiger Enters Trump's Turf


Attention aspiring fashionistas! Designer Tommy Hilfiger is looking for a few good trendsetters. On his upcoming reality show The Cut, the rag-trade veteran will give some lucky rookie the chance to design a collection for his label. He's humbly dubbed himself the "mentor, host and judge" of the contest, which will debut mid-season on CBS.

Auditions for The Cut started last weekend in Los Angeles. "We're looking for all different kinds of people from all walks of life," he explains. "It's accessible to everyone — a housewife, a design student or a surfer with good ideas. And this is not just about designing clothes, it's about having a sense of style and a good sense of pop culture. They have to convince us that they could be the purveyor behind a global lifestyle brand."

Obviously, Hilfiger hasn't time to judge every applicant himself, but he will see a certain number who make it past the initial tryouts. Casting read more

Stacie J. to World: ''I'm Not Crazy''


Had Stacie J. consulted her now-infamous Magic 8 Ball before entering Donald Trump's boardroom on last Thursday's Apprentice, it probably would have said, "Signs Point to Unemployment." But the 35-year-old model/Subway franchisee — whose 8-Ball-fueled breakdown freaked out her teammates and led to her firing — isn't about to let a pesky little pink slip get her down. She's too busy fending off accusations that she's loony tunes to worry about that.

TV Guide Online: I thought it was really cruel how the girls all ganged up on you in the boardroom.
Stacie J:
[Sighs] It was terrible.

TVGO: That said, your Magic 8-Ball freak-out was a little spooky. What happened?
Stacie J:
I was trying to motivate my team. It was the end of the task and I was like, "Hey you guys, we won! We won! Come on, get psyched!" I was being a cheerleader for the team. It's like what I do at my store — I own a Subway sandwich s read more

Apprentice's Bradford Undone

The Apprentice 2's second firee, Bradford Cohen, made a bold decision right out of the starting gate. He volunteered to switch to Apex (the all-women team) and be their project manager, and that choice paid off: His team won, and because he led Apex to success, he was granted immunity from getting fired the following week if Apex should lose. Last week, when his team lost the ice-cream sales task — due to Ivana's mismanagement — the overconfident Bradford gave up his free pass to go into the boardroom on an even footing. Big mistake. Huge! His impulsive gamble put a bad taste in Trump's mouth and caused a shock heard round the Watercooler: The otherwise extremely competent 33-year-old was fired. Here, TV Guide Online asks the flirty Florida legal eagle about his crazy risk. TV Guide Online: Why did you give up your exemption?Bradford Cohen: What happened was, we were read more

Press Tour Diary: Day Seven

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: Thank God for Les Moonves. Just as press tour's big reality-cloning controversy was beginning to lose steam, Viacom's iron-fisted dictator stepped in late last week and fired two disgruntled CSI cast members amid a contract dispute. The move not only gave critics something to buzz about besides dueling boxing shows and crappy elevator service, but it ensured that CBS's press-tour debut on Sunday would be Must-See TCA. Of course, I would have showed up no matter what — if only to get Moonves to explain how the wretched John Goodman sitcom Center of the Universe made it onto the network's fall lineup. And to thank him for the Snapple, of course.EXECUTIVE SESSION9:11 am CBS kicks things off on a defiant note by replaying a controversial short film it produced for last May's Upfront in which a cab read more
