It is actor vs. journalist and housewife vs. housewife in the new episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” Season 7 Episode 3 “A Family Affair,” which aired last Jan. 12, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. on NBC.
The episode kicks off with the introduction of the first task, which is organizing a four-page pictorial promoting fitness for Cosmopolitan magazine and mobile app. Since it is about fitness, baseball athlete Johnny Damon and Olympian Jamie Anderson are the project managers of Team Vortex and Team Infinity.
Both teams think it is best to represent fitness by stripping down. Kenya Moore says that Cosmopolitan is all about sex. Brandi Glanville is turning the “real housewife” mode on again when she describes Kenya as not sexy enough to be in the pictorial. She volunteers to demonstrate what she thinks are the best poses to their model while making innuendos to piss off Kenya.
Ian Ziegler is excited about the challenge. He thinks Cosmopolitan is a “very flirty” magazine because of the sexual content. Despite being uncomfortable reading it, he wants his wife to read it because she “needs” to. Meanwhile, Geraldo Rivera gets loose in the challenge when he starts embracing Johnny, who looks disgusted to explain his idea in detail. He thinks about making a sensual selfie since the magazine already has a mobile app, and it is popular recently.
“You’re you, take a selfie, and I’m your wife. I’m naked, you’re naked,” Geraldo says while touching the squirming baseball player.
Geraldo becomes willing to take off his shirt because of desperation. He thinks the challenge is tailor-made for Team Infinity. He describes the task like making a “pack of apes” create a “garden party.”
In the Boardroom, things take an unexpected twist. Donald Trump and Cosmopolitan think Team Infinity’s campaign is confusing because the photos seem to promote building an Olympian body and at the same time “looking like a real housewife.” Team Vortex wins because of their “Love Your Self(ie) Naked” campaign.
Jamie looks helpless while Brandi and Kenya are being catty. She also does not speak about Kate Gosselin taking too much time searching for props, which can actually save herself from elimination. Donald asks her who she wants to return in the Boardroom. Jamie admits she is not sure.
“Can’t you just choose?” Jamie tells Donald.
Obviously, that statement brings Donald on the edge of his trust for Jamie.
The next challenge is a fundraiser through a wedding dress sale. The two pop-up stores are placed too close with each other. The tension between Geraldo and Ian is emphasized when Donald decided to swap players.
Team Ian decides to have Chippendale’s dancers to spice up their store. Meanwhile, Team Geraldo uses the journalist’s talkative personality as Kate is posing in a wedding dress. Geraldo seems to act like a host of a freak show, announcing that Kate has eight kids. Kate tells him to stop talking about it.
“Geraldo plus eight ex-wives,” Kate backfires.
The results are too close. In the Boardroom, Donald announces that Team Geraldo generated $294,738 while Team Ian has $292,547. Geraldo has a winning spree going on.
During the deliberation, Brandi is safe from the daggers of blame despite her panic attack during the fundraising challenge because of her $40,000 worth of donations. Terrell Owen’s second time of raising a small amount of money in a fundraising challenge is unforgivable for Donald that he is fired.
