The Apprentice on Larry King Live: A RecapPage 2
View Printable version of this article
Larry asks Troy if he should have won. Troy says it was the saddest and greatest moment in his life, because he lost to Kwame. He wanted to win, he knew he was good for the job, but as Trump said, he doesn’t have it yet. He wants to come back and have another shot. Like Rudy on Survivor, he wants to keep coming back until he wins.
Same question for Kwame, who says he tried his best, and lost to a great guy. He’s now focusing on future opportunities.
Bill discusses his new job for a bit. They will be tearing down the old Sun-Times Building in about six months, and there is plenty of prep work to be done in the meantime. They need to deal with the city and pre-sell units, among other activities.
Donald Trump joins the show. He claims to be the biggest show of the year aside from the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards, and it was all due to him. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say he was kidding.
Why did it work? Trump says there was great chemistry. He thinks some of them will do well, and some of them won’t. You never can tell.
Everyone is asked what they think of Trump, and naturally they suck up, even Omarosa. Probably a good idea. What does Donald think of Omarosa? He says he was going to come down hard on her, but now he can’t. But whether we like her or not, she’s good television.
Larry asks Trump about Regis’ comments that some of the show was planned. Trump claims that his good friend Regis was saying it with a smile, and it was picked up by the Post and got carried away.
He asks Trump if the show can succeed next season. Troy jumps in and says that as long as Trump gives him another chance, it will. I have to agree!
Donald stops and mentions that he heard that Troy wanted to go back to college. However, college is expensive and Troy has a family to support. So Trump has an offer, but only if he has the unanimous support of the other contestants.
Trump then offers to pay for 100% of Troy’s college education. Wow. The other contestants are solidly behind the idea, and Troy is speechless. Trump says, “you better pick a nice, good, expensive college.”
On the extreme other end of the spectrum, Larry wants to talk about the FHM photo shoot. I’ll just BET he does. Amy says she really didn’t think about it before she did it. Well, that’s always a good way to do business. She says that she’s not ashamed of the photos, but it’s not an image she wants to portray.
Omarosa is asked if she would have posed, and she says absolutely not. She wants a career in politics. She’s got the ethical makeup for it, I’ll give her that. Amy says that Omarosa wasn’t asked, and told her the week before that she was interested. In fact, Amy and Omarosa were supposed to do a Maxim shoot until Amy backed out. Omarosa denies it, and of course everyone believes her because she would NEVER lie.
Bill says they have nothing to be ashamed of, and if they want to do it, more power to them. Trump says he was surprised, and the photos were a little “out there.” He adds that the same women were offered a lot more money by Playboy and they turned it down. They did the FHM shoot for nothing, which, he says, may be one indicator of why they didn’t win! Heidi adds that almost all the women were offered the exact same money by Playboy, and everyone turned it down.
A caller asks Heidi and Bill what advice would they give to people who want to be on the show? Bill says to be yourself, don’t over-strategize, and learn from week to week.
Larry asks Nick what he would have done differently. Nick answers that he shouldn’t have been so coy. Okay.
Heidi answers the caller’s question, saying that people should be themselves and not try to be another Omarosa or Bill or Heidi. And don’t be intimidated by Trump.
The next caller asks what Amy thought about being called a Stepford Wife. She laughed at it. You can either be bitter or you can laugh about it. She didn’t come off well in interviews because she has a lot of energy, and that was threatening to the corporate culture.
Trump says that Amy was magnificent, she won more than anyone else. He was upset with his people for not seeing “the real Amy.” Apparently, the real Amy makes decisions, like posing nearly naked in a national magazine, without thinking about them. Trump goes on to say that he knows Amy better than his executives, and they were wrong. Amy is going to be successful. But he doesn’t offer her a job. Strange.
Larry King breaks in with the news that Michael Jackson was indicted on child molestation charges. Larry asks Trump what he thinks, because he knows Jackson well. Trump does not believe it and will stick up for Michael. Michael Jackson lived in Trump Tower and he never saw any sort of problem, so he doesn’t believe it.
Finally, Larry asks Bill what he thinks of his future. Bill is excited because Trump surrounds himself with great people. He looks forward to the challenge.
