NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Writer-comedian Carol Leifer is the first person to go as NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” starts a new season.
Leifer called her fellow female teammates “dumb” on Sunday’s premiere. She was deemed the weak link in their initial project: to make more money from a startup diner than their rival team of seven men.
Rock-star wife Sharon Osbourne, singer Cyndi Lauper and actress Holly Robinson Peete are among the women. Next week they face another challenge against a men’s team including baseball great Darryl Strawberry, comedian Sinbad and former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich (bluh-GOY’-uh-vich).
The celebrities play for their favorite charities. But they can meet swift ends in the boardroom with the words “you’re fired” from “Apprentice” boss Donald Trump.
