Dionne Warwick Fired on "Celeb Apprentice 4"
On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" singer Dionne Warwick became the fourth star fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create a 30 second ad promoting ACN's video phone. Lil John was picked as project manager for the men, while the women nominated Nene Leakes for their team. The men decide to take a risk and do a humorous, viral video type ad about a man introducing his grandparents to his fiance - who happens to be another man. The women, on the other hand, decide to take the safe route and create an ad about a girl using the phone to keep in touch with her dad and deaf mom. Once the teams finished creating their ads, they presented them to a group of 450 ACN executives who voted for their favorite. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that the vote was a close 53 to 47 percent, in favor of the men. He then awarded project manager Lil John $40,000 for his charity. On the women's side, most of the team placed the blame on Dionne and LaToya for not doing enough work. Dionne even told Trump that she should be fired. That was all Donald needed to hear before he eliminated her from the competition.
