Star will mow 'em all down if this keeps up.
Might as well let her do the rest of the challenges herself.

On the men's side I'm hoping John Rich takes it. I'm sure whatever the task is he'll wipe the floor with what's left of the women's team.
By the way, the company with which I am partnered is being featured this Sunday on Celebrity Apprentice!!!! I wish I knew what the task was going to be but I don't. When you guys watch, I'd love to hear what you think about the company. If you like the services, please let me know. And if you want to know more about the company after the show airs, I'd be happy to answer questions or send more info!!
It's kinda neat to be this close to reality TV for a junkie like me. lol

I'm so happy Dionne is gone. She was a waste of space.

I mean, the commercial was supposed to convey an emotional connection, so I think he was thinking maybe like an "E.T. actually phones home" kind of thing.
Who's to say that it would have been more of a risk than the fiance twist they ended up going with.
When I heard Dionne saying that she had asked Nene if it was OK if she went back to the hotel, I thought I remembered Nene saying that it was, but I re-watched it later, and she did nothing of the sort. (It was more of a "Oh, you're going home? Goodnight, then." - with a hug.)
From what I saw, the women's commercial needed better editing.
And possibly, having the commercial's daughter signing something back to her mom, with sub-titles for us non-ASL-speakers.
If the editing hadn't produced such short cuts, it might have flowed more smoothly.
But what do I know?

Not to knock John Rich at all here, because he has already proved his competence in my eyes on the previous tasks, and I think he's a contender to go all the way, and I'll be very surprised if he doesn't make top 3 or 4 at least... but what were his duties on this specific task? I can't remember seeing him do much of anything, besides his private testimonials stating that he thought choosing the fiance twist as their concept would turn out to be a mistake. (And I personally agree with that assessment. I think that the men got lucky that their commercial turned out so well, and that the women's was a little sub-par, and especially that they got to go after the women, which probably tipped the scales (53% to 47%, right?), helped very much by Lil Jon's very lively presentation style.)

I also rewatched it to see what really happened and yes, Nene just said something like you said she said. However, in the car on their way to edit the commercial Dionne said that she wanted to go home but if she was needed she would stay. I don't remember a response to that but I think the editing of the Apprentice (not the commercial) either cut out the reply or cut out some of the conversation when Dionne said she was leaving. When I rewatched it, it looked like it went from one scene to the next with no continuity.
Am I glad Dionne left? Yes. I thought she was a diva on the show and added very little to any of the tasks and was just not very nice most of the time to her teammates. I live among a lot of folks 70 and older and they don't act like they should be catered to because they are older. Dionne did.

Star can roll with it. Star is your friend in that, "bless your heart your hair looks so much better today," kind of way.
The more I watch this show the more I realize what a created shtunk it really is. Trump is like a worrisome dog with a bone once he smells a reason for what he really wants.

I didn't say I thought it was fair, but I am glad he is out. It was quite obvious that Trump didn't want to fire Gary no matter what the rest of the men said. And asking Marlee (who already said she is a friend of Gary's) really shouldn't have carried any weight. I think someone said it earlier in the season, Trump already has preconceived notions of who he wants to keep around no matter how badly they might do.
I actually thought it was unfair that Hatch got fired. It should not be about big money you can bring in. The entire men's team thought Gary should be fired. Trump disregarded that AND asked the women's team who should be fired? They're the competition. Why should they get a say? And Hatch never had a chance to defend himself. I didn't like how last nights firing went down.
I would challenge Trump to actually have Gary working with him for just ONE day - he'd fire his butt so fast it would make your head spin. The guy might be brilliant but he is dysfunctional on his best day.

Celebrity apprentice is very rarely about who should go but who is the least interesting

(Great, now I will have to look up the origin of the expression.)
I can remember boardroom sessions where someone was defending a monumental screw-up they had made, which went on much longer.
In this case, Hatch did not actually screw-up, nor was he given the opportunity to say even one word in his defence.
Was Hatch the team member who contributed the least to the success of this task? My opinion is Yes.
Going forward, would he be the weakest player on Backbone? My opinion is No. (Gary Busey, indubitably.)
Should Hatch have been fired? My opinion is Yes. (Even though Canseco went home, he had no part in the task, so no Freebie.)
So ultimately, depriving Hatch of the opportunity makes no change to the result.
But it still would have been decent of Trump to let him have his day in court.

Busey will go another day, we all know he won't be there for the finals
I'm kind of figuring that it will be John Rich and Star Jones (blech) at the end

I think Trump had already decided Hatch would be the one to go even before all had been pulled into the Board room. In fact that's probably true in most cases, that he decides before anything is even told to the teams. Then he asks questions until it becomes logical that his choice is the correct one. lol I'm sure he's changed his mind or been swayed when on the fence with someone, but for the most part I think he knows what he's going to do before he even says who has won.

Richard Hatch was pretty forceful early-on but that fizzled to a whisper. Meatloaf should have been fired imo. He's an ass.
I like Star Jones okay on the show. I'm hoping I get to see her tell Nene to shut the hell up or something.
I agree that Generalissimo Trump pretty much knows the road he's headed down prior to the final finger point.
