(Spoilers)

I've been trying to avoid Celebrity Apprentice this season, but I just can't stay away apparently! I thought last night's episode was pretty good, if only for all of the crazy personalities really going full force. I couldn't believe Meat Loaf's temper tantrum... that guy seems like he could really get violent. Although if I had to deal with Gary Busey, I'd probably feel the same way. I do give credit to the rest of the team for helping to calm the situation down and I'm sure Meat was pretty embarrassed when they found his supplies. Oops!

On the other side, I was really surprised that the girls left everything down to the wire, and was a bit disappointed to not see a Star vs. Nene blowout, but I guess one per episode is enough. It looks like she's got LaToya in her sights for next week. I do have to give LaToya credit for donating that shirt and creating the best hat, though. All in all, it was hard to say who had the best art, because I feel like they only really showed a few pieces in detail through the whole show ... and how many times did we get to see Gary Busey's bison painting? I feel like in that regard I would have liked to have seen a quick run through of all the pieces. Some of them looked kind of cool, like Lil Jon or Mark McGrath and others looked like they came out of kindergarten! I guess it was all for a good cause though and while I'm sure it was hard, I am glad that Marlee came to the conclusion that someone on the boys' team had to go. I think it was only fair and I was glad to see Richard Hatch voted off the island... hee.

The only thing that I didn't understand was when Donald says "let's make a deal" ... I guess I was under the impression that the money they raised always went to their own charities, but is that not the case? Anyone know the details here?

ROFLMBO... Love your title as much, if not more, that this week's episode! I was really afraid Meat was going to stroke out; he was in such a rage! I think it was Gary's casual "Are you buying my canvases?" that really set Meat off along the path of outrage; I'm sure Gary can be a handful, but dude... you gotta just shake off the bad energy before it implodes on you!

I think Marlee was the absolute right choice as project manager; I saw that LaToya seemed to want to step up but Marlee was pretty insistent...and somehow, I knew she would be. The Nene - Star blow up is bound to come soon; you can feel the tension in Nene's voice when she talks to or about Star. Not that Star is an angel, she's pretty condescending in her assessment and comments on the others. But it looks like this challenge did more than raise a mind-blowing amount of money; it really seemed to have brought the women's team together...FINALLY!

They need that unity; the guys team is pretty darn strong, especially now that Richard is out of the picture. I just don't understand why he was on it to begin with, if he has no contacts to draw in. Raising money is, after all, the name of the game and goodness knows, he doesn't have the personal charisma to raise enough for subway fare!

I was a little confused about Donald's deal myself; I had the same impression you did and wondered if maybe he called it to attention like that to make it clear that the monies raised were going to the charities of each team leader simply because it was such a vast amount.

For me it was a case of "When" not "If" regarding Meatloaf.

I think that choosing to have the men lose a player was a good strategic move on Marlee's part. After all, it is a competition... you don't want to give the other team even the tiniest advantage. Although I don't think

I agree, I wish Marlee would have given the men's team a break! Meatloaf was out of control!

I have a large screen TV, with surround sound.
