Lisa Lampanelli experienced a roller coaster of emotions on this week’s installment of “The Celebrity Apprentice” (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on NBC). During their task, she and Dayana Mendoza got into it, when Mendoza wanted more to do, and Lampanelli accused her instead of wanting to be in the spotlight. The attack left Mendoza in tears.
“She still has no decency or respect,” Mendoza said. Despite Lampanelli later crying in the boardroom and saying she didn’t want to be a villain, or make girls cry, she was later much harsher toward Mendoza in a radio interview. There, she resorted to racial slurs and downright vicious and completely uncalled for insults.
Mendoza told HuffPost, “If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets to her shows, no problem, I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture.”
In the end, the drama didn’t hurt either woman — or perhaps it helped them if Donald Trump wants to nurture it for better television. Instead it was Paul Teutul Sr. (“American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior“) who got the boot for just not doing enough as project manager.
