Bret and Holly the final 2, trying to be “The Celebrity Apprentice”!

| May 17, 2010 at 10:53 AM EST

After watching the finale of Survivor last night, I almost forgot about “The Celebrity Apprentice”! This was the 1st part of a 2 part finale. It started off with the players getting pumped up about still being around..Sharon almost did strip tease right there! LOL..I’m like “Go Sharon”! But the fun ended pretty quick when they received a phone call informing them that Mr. Trump wanted them back in the boardroom! Sharon’s “Gut feeling” is right on the money when she once again says one of them will be fired right away..but not even Sharon’s great feel for things, prepared them for what was next!

Yes Sharon was right, there was going to be someone fired right off the bat..BUT, there would be 2 more to follow! In one night! At this point, after Survivor, I’m like ready to go into Reality TV Overdose! So after a gross comment by Maria and tongue lashing from Trump on how this is the boardroom NOT the locker room, Maria was fired! Clearly she was upset..

That left the final 4 to be interviewed by “Celebrity Apprentice” Joan Rivers and “Apprentice” Bill Rancic. After it was all said and done, Trump took their opinion’s and fired Curtis and Sharon! It sucked for me to see Sharon go, but in her own words admitted she got WAY too emotional! I understand her point with Holly, but why doesn’t Bret hear the same thing? Cuz he’s not a MOTHER? What kind of crap is that??

I hate on these reality shows when mom’s align with other mom’s for no other reason than because they’re both moms! Like, “I’m a mother and she’s a mother, so we can relate!” It doesn’t really work anyway, so I don’t get it! I don’t see guys doing that! I don’t see people like, “Oh hey, I had a kidney stone, so did you, now we’re bro’s!” What kind of logic is that Sharon? Then she says she doesn’t even know if she WANTS to beat Holly? How can Trump keep her after that? So bye Sharon! Way way WAY too emotional! To be honest, I love Sharon..but I’m a little bummed at her…

So this leaves Bret and Holly to square off! This one is sooo easy for me…COME ON BRET!! BTW, how weird is that knowing Bret could have died and is a finalist on the show! NOW I see why Donald Trump was so concerned! That could have been a disaster! How would they have even did that?? Wow…something to think about..but not for too long cuz Bret IS doing better, and I bet he’ll be on the finale, even if by phone or webcam!

I don’t like Holly, so I’m pulling for Bret all the way, even though it’s not looking too good for him right now, getting played by Curtis over the Snapple flavors! Another BTW, since when don’t they CHOSE their team as far as people coming back to help with the task? What, the 4 who came back were the ONLY ones who come back? That really sucks if that’s the case! I think they should lock these players down right in the beginning and tell them they have to come back!

I thought it was sooo lame to have them come back like that…and Darryl Strawberry? Come on! He don’t deserve to be back! Plus what kind of task is this? On previous seasons, they did event based tasks..now it’s down to a taste test? Is this “Hell’s Kitchen” or “The Celebrity Apprentice”? I don’t know…it’s just not what I expected…and it’s real letdown after being an otherwise good season!

Come on Bret! Take Holly OUT!! She’s good and I respect her play…but do NOT like her! Sorry, but at least I’m upfront about it! I’m sure part of the reason is I had to put up with Rodney Peete as QB of the Lions for years here in Detroit! And those are NOT good memories! LOL JK..That’s not the reason I don’t like her and I actually wish she would have already been fired!

All that to say, I think she’ll probably win…Bret’s really gonna have to knock it out of the park to win! I don’t think Trump likes the guy very much and IMO the odds are stacked against Bret….we’ll see how it all plays out!! Stay tuned…

Survivor Season 20 Finale Sunday! My vote for the winner is..

| May 14, 2010 at 8:14 AM EST

As soon as I walked in the door last night, I got hit with, “Who would you vote for out of Sandra, Russell or Parvati?”….After I got the explanation on what exactly I was voting for(Criteria set by the cool people @ survivorfandom.com), which is simply, “Which one of those three, deserves the million?”

I’ll tell you, for such a “simple” question, I really struggled with this! I mean, I was even telling myself out loud, “DUDE! You’re not buying a condo!”…lol…Ashley kinda helped(which she always does) by clarifying, it wasn’t who I disliked the least, or who I could tolerate the most, cuz to be honest, that’s where my mind was headed…I’m not a big fan of ANY them! With that being said, it was a vote for a the million!

After going back and forth in my mind..putting all the rumors and gossip aside, I came back to the original question that most jurors should at least consider! Which is, “Who played the best game?”

For me, no matter how pissed I was at someone, I would always come back to that..Who played the best??

I got my issues with this season but for the most part I enjoyed it, I’ll be on the look for the next season ASAP(Hopefully CBS hooks it up and we’ll have even cooler material next season!!) but this season? I think the hidden immunity idols got way overdone! I hope ChiBrad is right, in that maybe they went a little crazy with the idols cuz it’s an all star season…good point, and I hope so!

Here’s what I came up with…

RUSSELL – The Villain everyone either LOVES and/or loves to HATE ! It’s kinda crazy with the Russell hysteria…and make no mistake about it, no player in recent seasons have made the impact Russell has! He’s easily the most talked about, whether you love him OR hate him! No matter which side of the coin you’re on, Russell is the name spoken most! Everyone wants to know, “What did Russell do? What did Russell say? What was his reaction to this or that? What’s he going to do next?” type stuff! I think he very well COULD be the best ever, but I can’t stand hearing HIM tell me that! BUT, like Ashley reminded me..this isn’t a popular person vote!

Even though is style is almost masterful to watch at times, Russell does have his flaws! He seems to intimidate, but only with a person or two..I don’t think he’s nearly as effective with a group around..he needs that “one on one” thing to thrive, to get his game really in gear! I don’t think anyone’s figured this out and that’s their bad, not his! It did seem like some stuff DID get past Russell, where as his previous season, he seemed to pretty much be in control of almost everything! Besides the Rupert rock trick(which in the end, didn’t really matter) there were a couple other times when it seemed Russell wasn’t in control, or wasn’t in the loop, and he seemed to lose a half step from his last go at Survivor! BUT, in the grand scheme of things, it didn’t really matter…For the most part, Russell played his ass off! Good or bad, best ever or not..you can’t EVER say Russell isn’t a bigtime gamer!

PARVATI – This was easily the hardest one to think about, because I just can’t stand her! To me she just comes off like she thinks she’s “The Sh*t”!! and she just soooo rubs me the wrong way! She’s the girl that has a weird name and then bitches you out for not saying it right! I root against her almost every week! LOL…Again, not a popular vote! As with Russell, Parvati is a gamer! Does she have her pedal to the metal all the time? No…are her wheels constantly spinning on what’s going on in the game? Probably not…does she play when it counts? Oh hell yeah! Last night was the perfect example! When Russell tried to silence her from talking to Danielle last week, she wasn’t having any of it! IMO, she got a little respect from me JUST for doing and saying that to him! I was like, FINALLY! Someone stands up to Russell!

No, I didn’t forget had Russell not given her the hidden immunity idol, she would have been gone earlier..BUT, that’s not her bad! If anything she deserves some kind of credit for doing whatever she did to make Russell wanna give it to her! I’m remember thinking, “Russell? Give his idol away to save ANYONE? Wow..he must REALLY like her!” Aligned with her or not, that was still a crazy move for Russell! He risked his whole Survivor legacy on that one! Just think if he would have been voted out that night? He’d go from being viewed as the possible best, to a bonehead in one move!!

Russell ALSO gave her another idol when she already had one,that he didn’t know about BTW! There’s something about that girl! Parvati is a huge threat! She WON the game before! Yet somehow she doesn’t seem to be on people’s radar as much as she should be! THAT’S her strength and it’s a completely different way of playing…I kinda see right through her, but most don’t! Somehow they STILL don’t look at her as “THE one to beat!” Even though she doesn’t always play balls out, she plays her cards just right…she always seems to have the numbers..she always seem to be at least partially in control…

I don’t think she’s all out PLAYED Russell, but in a way she has! Nothing like blindsiding him out of the game or anything like that, but I don’t think she WANTED to blindside him! I think she could pull it off IF she wanted to! Smart girl…charmer, player to the bitter end…Survivor’s right up her alley, without even trying!

SANDRA – You know it’s a damn shame I dislike Sandra so much, because I dislike the other two sooooo much, I would have LOVED to get behind Sandra! Rooted her on to the very end! But every time I think I can root for her, or every time I think she’s thinking like a gamer, coming up with a good plan or whatever, she opens that big mouth of hers! Then I can’t STAND her worse than Russell or Parvati! She just seems like such a raging Bia!!!! Imagine the rattling that goes around in the head of her significant other, listening to her all day? And if she doesn’t have one, I can see why! She’s the typical, hand in your face, head nodding side to side…talking about, “Tss..yeah whatever girlfriend!”..you know, the old, “I AM all that AND a bag of chips!” taken straight out of Ricki Lake episode or something..Can’t STAND her! She just looks like she’s got a rotten egg under her nose all the time! That frown, the bitchy attitude..it’s like take it down like 4 notches Sandra geez! Lighten the F up!!

BUT again, not a popular vote! I’ll say this about Sandra…if she even did HALF of the things she talked about? She’d easily have my vote! She always seems to come up with ideas in the game..sometimes good ones! Just to always cave, give in to her tribe and be the ultimate “Floater” of the season! Granted every time she started to try and get rid of Russell, they’d go back and tell Russell…which wouldn’t fly with him, and she’s like forced to back peddle…that’s where I would have like to see her try something else! Come up with another plan that could actually work, rather than running back with her tails between her legs..

So after ALL that…my vote is??

PARVATI!!

I think it’s been a pretty even race between her and Russell…he just fell for the charm of a woman, AND the better player this season…she seems to have all the tools necessary to win the game! Also, and this is key, I think she has a variety of “Game”…I think we’ve all seen Russell and his bag of tricks! Maybe one day, he’ll prove me wrong, but I just think if he comes back in the future, it’ll be more of the same from him…Parvati could play it a bunch of ways…

This season, I think it was Russell walking 2 steps behind her, rather than vice versa!

Parv SHOULD be the 2-time Survivor Champ!! IMO of course…and hey, thanks for making me think Ashley, people @ survivorfandom.com! You guys rock me!

P.S. Happy now Katelynn? LOL

American Idol 2010: Big Mike Is Out & We Have Our Top 3

| May 13, 2010 at 12:26 PM EST

Tuesday night Big Mike said his goal was to make it into the Top 3 and Ellen immediately said his goal should have been to win.  Since he was ‘saved’ by the judges like five weeks ago, I think the guy should be happy with what he got and I’m sure there will be someone waiting to let him record an album.     

When we had our Top 24, I told my husband that in a perfect world it would be Lee, Casey and Crystal as the final 3 and I got my wish.  I’m hoping Casey or Lee take it all but the masses seem to be pulling for Crystal so I wouldn’t be surprised if she won the whole damn thing.

The problem I have with Crystal is we’ve already lived through the Janis Joplin era so when she makes an album will anyone really get into it?  I just don’t see how we can make this hippie chick current.  If I want to listen to “Me and Bobby McGee” I will throw in the Joplin CD not Bowersox but hey this is just my opinion.  Usually the original artist of a song is hard to beat but there are a few rare exceptions.

Disappointment is what I feel about Lee Dewyze.  I like the guy and I think he has a good sound when he can stay on pitch but he is not at all consistent.  The best he had ever done was when he couldn’t use his guitar so maybe the guitar is getting in the way of him focusing on the vocals. 

So here’s hoping the underdog Casey James takes the crown!  We will know tomorrow which songs the judges pick for each of the top 3 and I’m hoping for Casey’s sake he will get a Simon Cowell pick because if it’s up to Ellen and Randy to choose for him we may be in real trouble.  Casey is a fantastic musician so even if he doesn’t win, I think he may have a chance for a great career.

Niecy Nash NOT “Dancing with the Stars” anymore..

| May 12, 2010 at 7:11 AM EST

Ok, so here’s what could be the shortest blog ever..Niecy Nash NOT “Dancing with the Stars” anymore, no surprise, everyone agrees she was the right choice to leave, there’s 4 couples left! LOL..How’s that? I mean that really could be the whole thing right? In a nutshell? Sure, but what fun would that be?

It really was no surprise that Niecy left, and unlike some of the other contestants, I don’t have any last minute jabs for her on the way out! I liked Niecy Nash this season! I wasn’t impressed with her dancing, but the lady is funny! It’s that “on-the-fly” type humor that really makes someone funny! No writers, no setups or punchlines..just a funny person in general! I also think she tried really hard, and sometimes your best just isn’t good enough! Sad but true..in a perfect world, someone like Niecy would have went on, and tore it up on the dance floor! It just doesn’t work like that..so all you can expect is for someone to give in their all(Hear that Kate Gosselin?), WITH a good attitude, and that’s what I seen from Neicy Nash! From now on, when I hear her name or see her on TV, I’ll pay attention!

Ashley pretty much nailed it with the recap of the dancing on Monday, so I don’t need to go over everyone’s dances, but I will say for the most part the judges and the fans voting at home have got it right! It’s almost shocking how the right people seem to be the ones leaving for that week, like with Niecy! I don’t think anyone would dispute that, right?

I think next week will follow suit, with Chad Ochocinco leaving next! Sorry Blackgirl! Sorry Jeanne! But your “O” man is probably next! I think you both know that’s true, yes? It would be an all out shocker to see any of the other 3 leave before him..again, rightly so..Despite’s Chad’s effort, and improvements, it’s JUST not enough! He’s fallen just a bit short! One of those “Day late, dollar short” things!

Lately I’ve been hearing the “It’s not fair for Nicole to be in this” rumblings a bit more! 1st off, where were you people when I was banging that drum the 1st week! LOL…2nd, I’ve changed my mind on that for a few reasons…I’ll start with, it’s not her fault if no one’s as good as her! It’s not her fault if they don’t cast anyone on her level..all she can do is go out and do her best to win! I think they should cast MORE people with dance experience! It isn’t anything new on the show! What, Drew Lachey ISN’T basically the guy version of Nicole? No no..if you wanna blame anyone? Blame casting!

They can mix in people who don’t dance..but it isn’t fair and doesn’t do anyone any favors! Not to the fans of the show OR the person like Nicole who’s viewed as being “favored” ! Personally I think she’s far and away the best this season..I’d like to see more people would could have actually competed with her, rather than bitching that it isn’t fair that she’s on the show!

I always hear “I like to be entertained”..well? Wouldn’t it be far more entertaining to see more good dancing rather than leveling the playing field with so-so dancing? I think NOT!!

BTW, I think the kids from last season would blow either of those dance teams away on that college dance off!

So we’re down to the final 4..Football player, Chad Ochocinco, Sportscaster Erin Andrews, Singer Nicole Scherzinger and Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek

Niecy Nash and the other other eliminated “Stars” , Reality TV stars, Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Actors Pamela Anderson, Shannen Doherty and Aiden Turner — are expected to return for the season’s final episodes on May 24 and 25.

The Bachelorette Sneak Peek

| May 11, 2010 at 11:29 AM EST

First thing I noticed was she had her hair down!  Thank you!

Reality Steve is pretty much going to spoil the season for us and the guy Justin in the video is the one he is proclaiming to be the tool of the season.  He will receive the majority of the votes from the guys as Chris Harrison will once again let them vote on which guy is there for the wrong reasons.  Ali will have the chance to assess the situation for herself and will allow him to stay.  RS further spoils with letting us know that Justin will be the biggest villain in the show’s history.  Sounds like fun times are in store for Ali.  Are you ready for the new season?
