Lisa Rinna Fired From ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

The reality show star complained that everyone pushed her to be the Project Manager then threw her under the bus.

The second episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice” makes it even between the men and women team. Donald Trump, who fired David Cassidy last week, chose Lisa Rinna this time in the battle of the sexes to prepare and present a children’s book with a positive message.

Rinna took the role of Project Manager for ASAP and Meat Loaf led Backbone. There was a fight between Marlee Matlin and Dionne Warwick regarding the former’s suggestion to create a sign language book. Star Jones urged Lisa to take action when things got ugly. Lisa went with a happy and fun book about a kid who emerges from being shy. She was also in charge of the reading with Marlee signing the story.

In the boardroom, Marjorie Kyler and Holly Robinson Peete reported to Trump on each team’s achievement. The men and women also gave each other’s books criticisms and the women’s book is deemed too repetitive with fonts that are too small. Trump agreed and asked Lisa to bring back two. She picked Dionne and Star and said that everyone was trying to throw her under the bus.

After much arguments, Trump sent Lisa home and sent a check of $20,000 to Meat Loaf’s choice of charity, The Painted Turtle. The winning book would be published with proceeds going to another charity.

It’s always 100 percent effort on our parts, but sometimes we just miss. But when we hit it, it can be good, I think. And this happened to be a good night for me. I’m rarely coming off the stage saying, ‘Man, that was awesome.’ I’m usually like, ‘Ah, man, I could have done this, I could have done that.’ But this particular night, regardless of the film crew being there, I was like, ‘Man, that was a good show.’ I really got some things accomplished musically, lyrically, all that stuff.

Leah ReminiLEAH Remini is in everyone’s bad books!

According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, the King of Queen star is alienating her costars on TV show The Talk.

“She is a total terror who has ticked off all four other co-hosts with her antics,’ a source said.

The insider says Leah, 40, has even been fighting with her former close pal, Holly Robinson Peete.

“At one point this season, Holly told Leah to speak more softly,” said the pal. “Leah went ballistic and said, ‘Yeah, well at least I have something to say.’

“The two women looked like they were ready to kill each other.

“Leah stirs the pot every chance she gets.”

Ice Cube Joins The 21 Jump Street Movie

Details about the Jonah Hill-produced 21 Jump Street movie have been slowly unfolding and we know that Channing Tatum has been attached to the film for a few months. Now it’s confirmed that Ice Cube will also star in Jump Street as the precinct captain. We’re guessing this means that Tatum is taking on the Johnny Depp role, while Hill is…Peter DeLuise? We’re not sure who corresponds to who, actually. We’re more shocked that a show that aired on Fox in the 80′s before Fox was, you know, a “real” network, is getting remade.

So now that the principle players have been cast, what we’re really wondering though is who from the original series is going to come back for a cameo in the reboot. Will it be Richard Grieco? A DeLuise (Peter or Michael)? Holly Robinson Peete? Our money’s on Peete.
