    Good Lord.
    OK- Joan managed to donate a buttload of money.
    Geesh.
    That in no way changes the point I was making about rules violations.

    the gimme my purse and no interview lines were classic. The assistant had a what the heck look on her face behind that way and it was funny. I wouldnt wanna be the guy driving in the car that melissa was supposed to be in anyway

    speaking of which, how are those being filmed this year? They all seem to have coats etc on when they leave. And at least it's not the same taxi number every time :)

    I'm so glad they are keeping the 2 hour show..if this ever goes back to 1 hour it will suck

    As angry as she was, I wouldn't be surprised if she took a cab.

    I can't imagine Joan not being back next week if for no other reason than the exposure. I don't know if she is currently on TV in any way (I only know her for the Academy Awards time stuff), but I'm guessing this is the one outlet available to her right now to get her mug in front of a national audience.

    She'll be back.

    i'm surprised this week she kept on the nazi theme...maybe one time in the heat of the moment you could excuse it, but not keeping on using it days later!

    i would have liked to see DT follow them out of the boardroom and say what the heck is happening here?

    I can't believe she said it again. You kinda lose sympathy when you talk like that and then turn around and play victim claiming Annie is always attacking them.

    Joan was CONSTANTLY talking *****. She HATES Annie cuz she went against her kid. Someone needs to cut that umbilical cord.


    That blow up was CLASSIC. It was so great. I actually rewound it for a second viewing.


    For someone who complained about the pain she was in cuz of her foot injury Melissa FLEW outta that boardroom. She practically ran.

    Quick question for our female posters: Is it normal to wear a high heeled shoe when your other foot is stuck in a boot? That didn't seem to make sense to me at all.



    Brande is hot. That should never be up for debate.

    Has Melissa (or Joan) made any public statement / "explanation" for Sunday's blowup?

    I didn't read the entire article, so I'm not sure if she really apologized.

    Someone in the room reminded her that she had compared Annie to Hitler the week before, and Joan's offhand response was that she didn't want to offend Hitler. She wasn't keeping it going, someone else brought it up.

    See you didn't pick up on it either. I don't believe that Annie really thinks Melissa was weaker than Brande. Annie wants to get rid of the stronger players to make the game easier for her to win, obviously. So she fed all that bs to the board in hopes that they would think she was just being honest and really think "hey this professional poker player can't be bluffing us and she must really think Melissa is that bad if she is willing to sacrifice her instead of having an easy win later on"; she played them. I'm not a fan of the Rivers but I do know that Melissa was definitely stronger than Brande.

    edit: I could be totally wrong, but that is how I see Annie playing this game and figuring out the best way to win.

    edit: Melissa seemed to be a better worker and better idea man. All Brande was good at was raising money.

    For as to why Melissa was better, I would go back to the task where they had to put on a show for the sales people of the video phone. Didn't everyone praise her for taking control of the production and making it "successful" even though they lost that task? I think that's why the PM was fired instead of her. Wasn't she praised by everyone for picking out the best jewelry in the task to auction off Trumps line? In this episodes task, what did she do to get fired? She did all her assignments and helped in the brainstorming.

    For as to why Brande is not better, I can't think of one good thing she did except for the fund raising. The one task I would like to reference was the one where she and Jesse went to Brooklyn to design something and he was sick all day and she did NOTHING but flirt with the workers. When the rest of the team showed up everyone was bad mouthing her ESPECIALLY Annie. I think this was the episode where Joan really started to hate Annie, because supposedly they had a talk and Annie told her that she can't stand Brande and she did nothing on the task and she will attack her in the boardroom. Then she didn't and Joan came to the conclusion that Annie was two faced.

    Also how about this task? Brande pretty much promoted Annie into the project manager position, she let Annie run the show and gave all the credit to her. Until Jim Cramer pointed that out and she took it all back.

    Maybe the response will be that Brande raised more money, that's irrelevant. Hershel Walker raised the most money on his team and he was still fired.

    I didn't pick up on that because that is not the way it happened. Annie didn't say "Melissa was weaker than Brande"...she said she thought she had a better chance of beating Melissa in the finale because Brande has shown she can raise more money than Melissa (I believe the final task is a fund raising task).

    How do you mean that "Melissa was definitely stronger than Brande"? Are you saying that Melissa did raise more money than Brande? After all, fund raising is one of the "skills" of winning this competition. Of course there are areas where Melissa is stronger than Brande, but not in fund raising.

    If Melissa was a stronger player than Brande, then why did Trump fire Melissa? Are you saying Annie is that good of a player that she was able to convice Trump to fire the stronger player (even when he started the board meeting with his sights set on Brande)? Wow, Annie does deserve to win if she is that good.

    Thats funny, because according to Melissa she wasn't given any tasks and wasn't allowed to do anything. And Brande did the photo shoot in this task, even though you say she did nothing (and Melissa helped her...well, maybe not according to Melissa, who "wasn't allowed to do anything") So, apparently Brande did the photo shoot all by herself.


    You said Annie "didn't attack Brande in the boardroom", but in fact she did. She said "Brande does not stick her neck out" and that "Brande plays it safe, instead of playing to win". I guess Joan was just mad because Annie did scream and call Brande names...I guess Joan would have been happy if Annie called Brande "Hitler".

    He wasn't fired on a fund raising task...that was an earlier task

    I'm saying they both had their strenghts and weaknesses. And yes Melissa definitely deserved to be fired over Annie (are you disagreeing with that?)...but over Brande, maybe, maybe not...Melissa and Brande were pretty even. Remember, Trump said the executives loved both advertisements this week and than KOTU barely won. So according to everyone, Annie had the most to do with what was a good product, and according to Melissa, Melissa had the least to do with it.

    Sorry I mentioned annie again. What about between just brande and Melissa? In your opinion, who would you have fired after this task?
