Every week on BuddyTV, former Apprentice contestant Jenn Hoffman will share her unique insights on the current season. Find out what happened in last night's boardroom from someone who has actually been there.
Maybe she just doesn’t speak English? That is the only explanation I can muster up for Nadia Comanenci’s quiet attempt at self-defense in the boardroom last night. That and this entire show is bananas. And I’m not just referring to those ridiculous yellow outfits Team Womyn wore in the boardroom.
I’ll start by admitting this show is getting pretty ridiculous. Two weeks in a row a completely random person is fired despite doing absolutely nothing wrong. Last week Tiffany is canned for being too nice, then this week Nadia is dismissed for ordering lunch. Seriously. That was the reason she was fired. WTF?
Since I refuse to live in a world where someone is fired for forgetting Omarosa’s dinner (she eats kittens and hot sauce only, I presume) there must be some other reasons poor Nadia got the axe. Mostly Nadia was fired because she isn’t a raging bitch like the rest of her teammates. Just like Tiffany, she refused to point the finger at the project manager. All Nadia really needed to do was give Trump one reason to keep her, but instead she was pretty much mute. Maybe she wanted to go home.
Here is how it went down:
: Team. Whose fault is this loss?
THE ENTIRE TEAM
: (Eyes darting around) Um…Nadia?
: Nadia? But Nely did a really awful job. She made America hate puppies. I always hated puppies because puppies are weak and don’t have jobs, but Nely really made me hate those dogs.
: That’s sad. I’d try to look sad but the Botox, Radiesse, Juvederm, Silicone and Collagen allow me no expression.
: I can see that. And who were those awful actors?
: Are you talking to me?
: Baldwin, what are you doing in here? NBC doesn’t make you show up until next week.
: That’s my brother…Alec. He’s on 30 Rock
: Oh. Well I was referring to the terrible actors in the losing commercial. It that Marilu’s fault?
: Oh please. I’m making the final 4. Don’t mess with me.
: Fine. Marilu you are off the hook. Nely, you sucked this week. Why?
: Because Nadia didn’t order lunch.
: Really? That answer doesn’t seem legit. Softball chick, what do you think?
: (Trying to look smart) I’m going to guess Nadia and…Carol. Those are the only two people I’m not afraid of, so I’ll say them.
: Bitch you are dead. DEAD. I will cut you.
: Nadia, would you make a good leader?
: (looks sad)
: But do you think you can lead a team?
: ::Blink Blink::
: I think you are a champion. Are you a champion? Why aren’t you fighting back?
: (looks tired, yet also suddenly looks very young, shy and beautiful)
: Okay, since we need The Swan and the gorgeous super model were-witch to stay, Nadia you’re fired.
So Nadia Comaneci and her beautiful brown doe-eyes do the walk of shame. And now she knows what every other firee before her knows. No matter how hard you try most of your footage will end up on the cutting room floor. All your good ideas, positive traits and great contributions will be rendered insignificant because you were fired so early. Anything you did to save yourself will be edited from the show and archived away, only to be replayed again and again in your mind. Look at the bright side, Nadia. At least you don’t have to deal with Omarosa anymore.
