DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
ISN’T Celebrity Apprentice hysterical? I always forget it’s on and then kick myself that I haven’t been watching it. The celebs tend to be this combustible stew of off-the-boil legends and leftovers from other reality series.
You think they’re all going to have massive egos and then find not all of them do.
Dionne Warwick is on it this time and she seems to have things in perspective. Relatively. Plus, she is 70. So she kind of should by now.
Still, early days yet. We’re only up to the third episode. Warwick was more of a handful last week when they had to do the children’s book. She was just a bit slow on the till in that first episode when they were running the pizza joint.
As she pointed out, she’s fine when she’s charging things to her credit card, slightly less competent when it’s the other way round.
I wouldn’t have had her on the cash register, I would’ve had her out the front of the shop the way the men’s team had Gary Busey, and I would’ve had her singing an amended version of Walk On By . . . Don’t Walk On By/Come In And Try Some Pie . . . and so on.
She’s the biggest star on Celebrity Apprentice. Followed by Meat Loaf, who looks like a
Hopeful winner: Gary Busey cab driver when he puts his reading glasses on.
The biggest loudmouth is Richard Hatch, the dude who won the first series of Survivor, and who then went to jail on tax evasion charges.
So when David Cassidy mentioned time spent in a federal penitentiary for lying and cheating, that’s what he was talking about.
I was a tiny bit sad David Cassidy left before he got to sing I Think I Love You. I thought he was going to start serenading Jose Canseco at one point there, when Jose, now apparently off the ’ roids, said he would always protect the underdog.
Even Richard Hatch looked frightened.
I hope Gary Busey wins. Celebrity Apprentice Fox8, 7.35pm
