He pulls Teresa into it, saying he Googled her to find out what she was about and read about her show, and her culinary desires, and her fashion background, and when he Googled Aubrey, “and a naked picture of her with a gut popped up!” Yeah, I’ve seen that picture, too. Anyway, he ends with a very eloquent, “[Bleep] her! [Bleep] her!” Wow—that’s more anger than I ever imagined I would see from him. Maybe he went a little overboard there, much as I hate to say it.
In the lobby, Lou is actually chatting with Amanda the secretary, which virtually no one ever does, and asks her about all the anxiety she’s seen from contestants.. Dee says it’s unfortunate they have to do this, and seems put out that he’s accused of not giving 110 percent (if you can still find your glass, then SHOT!) Amanda is told to send them back in.
Trump asks Dayana why people keep bringing her back. (Why do you keep asking her that? Gah!) Dayana doesn’t know, and Trump says now it’s the men bringing her back and insinuates the women didn’t like the way she looked or something, and he asks her again. Dayana repeats that she wasn’t assigned anything so she was lost and she tried to help everyone. Trump asks if Dayana is a hard worker, and Dee says she is and she did a lot of things. Trump asks Dayana who she would fire, which I’m pretty sure she already answered as well. Three hours long. She says the Project Manager, because everyone had to find their own way and Lou was not creative or giving ideas.
Trump asks Lou, for at least the third damn time, if he should fire him because he’s the PM—Lou once again says no, because he stepped up to the plate and made sure the team gave 110 percent. (SHOT! *Hic*) Dee asks, “But what do you do?” He says Lou let Lisa and Penn take over the writing, and let him handle the box, and he went shopping while the rest of them were busting their balls and giving 120 percent (SHO—no, wait, false alarm, don’t drink.) Dee says he was in charge of branding and the box, but Don says two of those things are what they lost on, so is that a positive or a negative for him? Dee says everything he did was approved by the Project Manager and he never did anything without his authority.
Trump is in full-on “Save Lou” mode again as he continues to go after the box Dee designed which the execs didn’t like. He asks Lou if he liked the box, and Lou starts to say it could have been better. Dee says all of them were gathered around the computer, but Trump again says Dee designed it and Dee owns up to being the lead on it, but the PM oversaw everything. He says they all work to fill in the void, but if Lou didn’t have a writer he’d be hamstrung, because he can’t write or create anything. Dee refers to himself, Arsenio, and Clay as “The Lou Whisperers,” and they work with Lou because they understand he has a limitation.
Trump for some reason asks if Dee was impressed by Arsenio, and Dee says he was and he never saw that personality on television. With that out of the way, Trump asks Dee if he thinks Lou is responsible for their loss, and Trump says in all fairness it wasn’t Dayana and she probably shouldn’t even be here and probably Penn should be (he’s wrong about that).
Dee points out the only thing Lou cites that he does every week is “I got up and performed, I got up and rehearsed, I got up and gave a speech,” and he does a great job, but he’s a “one-note horn.” Trump tries to save Lou by again noting that the executives really liked Lou’s testimonial, and he thinks it’s a great example for a lot of people that have hearing disabilities. Lou starts in again about stepping up and doing the testimonial despite his hearing problem, and he feels he shouldn’t be fired because he took a risk and he did the [bleep] job. Is that the first time Lou has cursed on this show?
Trump asks Dee if Lou has a chip on his shoulder, because he seems to think everyone is out to get him and that’s been a constant theme with him. Dee says he thinks fondly of Lou, because he’s taken a bodybuilding trophy and turned it into a full time career and there’s few people who can say that, but he does have a chip on his shoulder because he’s been told he can’t and he’s fought against his disability.
Trump says that he gets credit for loving to fire people, but he hates it, and he especially hates firing really good people. He says they have a lot of good people, and he thinks the two guys are both great, but this was about presentation, and it was about box design. Dee did the box design, so he’s fired. I have to admit, for a second there I thought he was gonna get rid of Lou.
Dee hugs both Dayana and Lou goodbye, and Lou tells him, “Nothing’s changed.” And yet he still holds a grudge against Penn?
In the limo, Dee advises his teammates to not prop up Lou Ferrigno anymore, because the Trumps don’t have a clear picture of who he is and what he is and his abilities. He says if Lou didn’t have his support, he would have been gone a long time ago and wouldn’t have been able to throw him under the bus. I hate that phrase more and more each week.
Next week: Lisa is very, very, very, very angry. At everyone. Arsenio, Dayana, and Lou will all feel her wrath—and those are just the ones they told us about!
