Apprentice Flasher Speaks!


In yet another Apprentice first, a contestant on last Thursday's episode used sex to sell and Donald Trump did not stand up and cheer. On the contrary, the millionaire chick-magnet — who never met an inappropriate sexual advance he didn't like — banished 28-year-old venture capitalist Ivana Stripalot from the boardroom after she dropped her skirt in the middle of Wall Street in a desperate attempt to sell candy bars. Then she tried to justify the whole thing to TV Guide Online's Michael Ausiello.

TV Guide Online: You had to know you were getting fired after you dropped skirt.
Ivana
: But DT had criticized me for not using sex to sell in the ice cream episode. I was trying to prove that I learned my lesson. (Laughs)

TVGO: Do you regret it?
Ivana:
I don't know if I regret it, because at the time it was the best idea I could come up with. And honestly, I looked at the women on the other team and I didn't r read more

Apprentice's Andy Dies Young

What do you get when you cross a 2-lb. hand weight with a world atlas? The edgy new design for a Pepsi bottle... right? Well, that's what The Apprentice's Andy thought before Trump fired him for fizzing out as team leader last week. Does the 23-year-old young gun have any regrets? Any secrets? Any gas after downing all that soda pop? Here, TV Guide Online invites this champion debater to argue his merits.TV Guide Online: Regarding the Pepsi Edge task, I don't think I can improve upon the whoopee-cushion sound effects with which the guys in post-production punctuated your bottle's unveiling.Andy: How funny was that, the music they played when we were presenting? The thing is, when we were developing it, we thought we were right on. We thought we had a great campaign, so we were pretty excited. TVGO: Maybe you were just a bit loopy from a sugar/caffeine high? You must've set a personal — if not world — record for so read more

Apprentice Hothead Mouths Off

If loose lips sink ships, then 31-year-old Apprentice also-ran Chris Russo may want to strap on an extra life preserver. During the two months he spent kissing up to Trump, the politically incorrect (yet oddly likable) Long Islander came off a smidge chauvinistic (remember the bridal store "bitch"?), a tad homophobic (b---j-bs = gay support!) and a touch traitorous ("My team sucks, Don!"). Now, let's see if we can add apologetic to the list...TV Guide Online: Was Thursday's bridal task rigged to make you lose?Chris Russo: I don't think the competition was rigged to make me lose. I do believe there was a slight chance the wedding task was not the next task in line. But this is Mr. Trump's game, and if he wanted to change things up to have me tested after opening my mouth the week before, he makes the rules. TVGO: Do you think your accent was an obstacle when you were making those phone calls? Maybe the women at those bridal st read more

Apprentice Cad Kisses and Tells

Faster than you can say "raging lothario," 28-year-old real-estate developer Raj Bhakta got the kiss-off from Donald Trump on last Thursday's Apprentice. His fatal slipup? Converting a four-bedroom house to a three-bedroom house during a, um, real-estate task. His next blunder? Agreeing to talk to TV Guide Online's Michael Ausiello.
TV Guide Online: Who'd you vote for last week?
Raj Bhakta:
I'm a very disgruntled Republican. Let's leave it at that.

TVGO: How are things with Robin? You get her digits?
Raj:
I think I might be having dinner with her tonight. I spoke to her a couple of times today.

TVGO: Is this a date?
Raj:
(Laughs) We shall see, sir. I'm working on it.

TVGO: You have major horndog issues. What's the deal?
Raj:
I cannot say that I agree with that characterization. I mean, I was standing outside an elevator bank with nothing really to do, so I talked to Robin. I'm not trying read more

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
