Watch This: Joan and Melissa Rivers's Celebrity Apprentice Meltdown
The last we checked in with The Celebrity Apprentice -- a season fraught with internecine conflict -- Dennis Rodman was shouting something about vertical workflow as he stuffed Clint Black into a Coleman cooler. The ugliness didn't end there, as things have grown quite contentious between the Rivers women and Melissa's surviving female teammates -- poker champion Annie Duke, and Brande Roderick, Playboy Playmate and the entrepreneurial force behind financiallyhung.com.
The drama starts in a tenser-than-usual boardroom, where the younger Rivers accuses the two women of partaking in cabalistic activities that may or may not have included the wearing of Slankets, the slaughtering of kittens, and the drawing of pentagrams on discarded swatches of red carpet. Things deteriorate quickly from there, with terms like "whore pit vipers" -- the loosest of all deadly, pit-dwelling reptiles -- being casually tossed about. All this builds to the shocking climax, when the fiercely protective mama puma (with a face to match) confronts Annie the Texas Hold'em Nazi, spitting, "You are a poker player. A poker player ... Poker players are trash dahling. TRASH!!!" The poker world may never recover.
