The most eccentric member of this season's line-up has been sent home for quarreling with her project manager most of the time and being in the losing team.

Cyndi Lauper who is arguably the main attraction in this season's line-up of "The Celebrity Apprentice" has just been sent home. The singer was in the losing team led by Holly Robinson Peete who failed to impress in the decorating challenge.

Teams switched members this week, Curtis Stone moved to Sharon Osbourne's team although Sharon and Maria Kanellis said they hated him last week. Meanwhile, Holly has to keep up with Cyndi who called her "bee-yotch" in the last boardroom. The task was to decorate an apartment within a day and one room should have celebrity theme.

Holly's team chose Balinese as the theme and Sharon acquired the information, relieved that she has modern design in mind. Holly put Cyndi in charge of the celebrity room but they had disagreement over its color. Cyndi wanted it to be vibrant and fun but Holly said it better be normal. Cyndi called Holly "conservative".

In the end the execs preferred Sharon's design even though they said the celebrity room is boring. Sharon won $40,000 for Cedars Sinai hospital's colon cancer program.

Meanwhile in the boardroom, Bret Michaels was criticized for not having a say in Holly-Cyndi squabble. Mr. Trump also made sure they all know that Holly was the project manager of the losing team. But eventually he picked Cyndi to be fired.

How can Trump be so influenced by the poor argument of Dom-Dom here? Definitely one of the worst choices in 'firing'.

I have been watching celeb apprentice here in New Zealand, several months behind, however that Holly is a nasty piece of work and has dissed Cindy the whole way through the show. I love Cindy and her creative, fun and sassy personality. Cindy gets my respect hands down!!! Holly, your just like one of those nasty mean girls in the school yard, it shows the level of insecurities you must have to put someone like Cindy down. Holly is a Beeyatch from hell!

I LOVE Cyndi and felt so badly that she had to take the flack she did on the show. She is a sweet, talented, beautiful, special woman who should be respected and listened to and I hope to see her performing for the rest of my life. You sing it girl and I will always be watching. Love you, Liz Fromer from Kitchener, Ontario Canada

Cyndi is the bomb...I guess Donald doesn't want to have a pattern of apprentices that have been in the spotlight for a very long time.

I AM SOOO BUMMED THAT CYNDI WAS FIRED OVER THAT LITTLE B**** HOLLY. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT HOLLY, WHO'S LOST 2 TASKS WAS SPARED FROM BEING FIRED IN BOTH LOSSES? ANYBODY ELSE WOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED. I LOVE CYNDI. SHE'S HILLARIOUS AND I THINK I ONLY WATCHED BECAUSE OF HER. ALSO HOW COME NOBODY IN THE BOARDROOM BROUGHT UP THE FACT THAT HOLLY'S TEAM LOST BECAUSE THE JUDGES SIMPLY DIDN'T LIKE HER DESIGN?!?! REMEMBER ONE OF THE GUYS SAID "THEY WERE GOING FOR ZEN, BUT IT LOOKED MORE CHEAP THAN ZEN!" WHOSE IDEA OR DESIGN WAS IT TO BEGIN WITH? HOLLY! ALSO, ARE THEY FORGETTING THAT THEY DIDN'T LIKE THE "SEAFOAM GREEN"? WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT? HOLLY! SERIOUSLY, SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED... BACK WHEN SHE LOST AFTER DIRECTING THAT COMMERCIAL WITH SCOTTIE PIPPEN! GOOOOO BRET!!!!

Cyndi we love you!!! I was struck by your enduring fabulous. Holly's a mean little no-talent brat. Cyndi Forever! Donald, you suck.

Trump kept Holly because she is mean and the producers think people like to watch the toxic villian 'til the end, as strange as it seems. But, I think people find Cindy much more interesting. Mean, bitchy people are a dime a dozen.

Cyndie is great, She's creative, real and unique. Holly should have been fired. Holly's design was horrible and she treats Cyndie with so much much disrespect, it's just gross. Where did she learn it was okay to walk all over people like that?

The firing of Cyndi Lauper brought tears to my eyes. It affirms the terrible character of the successful over those who use love as their personal mantra. CYNDI LAUPER YOU WILL BE MISSED!!!!

Cyndi Lauper was the one who should have stayed. Holly should have been fired.

Cyndi lauper WAS the star of the show, and basically the entertainment for the show this season, now that she's gone.... there's nothing to watch.

Holly was kept on because Trump needs a good fight at the end with someone we hate. Like Rivers and Duke, there was a good cat fight! We all love Cyndi, she had to go. Like Joan Rivers, I didn't care for Cyndi, I thought she was frivolous, until this show. I really like her and appreciate her imagination and creativity. And Annie Duke is like Holly, I really have no respect for them, shallow no talent backstabbers. Sharon and Holly would make a good finale, but Donald had 2 women fight it out last year, so he might change it up. The 2 guys wouldn't get a good ruckus going.

So glad Cyndi is gone! She is a toxic, hateful, mean woman. And talk about a sore loser... Brett tried to say "it's not personal" and give her a hug at the elevator, but Cyndi acted like a spoiled brat and totally dissed poor Brett. She was too scared to be the project manager knowing that if they lost, Trump usually fires the project manger.... NOT THIS TIME CYNDI, YOUR "TRUE COLORS" WERE SHINNING THROUGH!

I have stopped watching celebrity apprentice now that Cyndi is fired. Cyndi, Brett, Sharon are the most creative thinkers on that show. The show is boring without their creativity. I have lost hope for the show. Cyndi,a major creative mind, got kicked to the curb. I got tired of hearing Holly's difficulty in dealing with Cyndi~think sea foam green....those rooms looked small,and cheap, think suburban living room....Cyndi is a brilliant Genius with a great heart..and she also was bringing in the dough...

Holly is CHEAp and LAME
posted by EasyEasy on May 12, 2010
Holly is a lame player. She has not made wise decisions and she´d thought this is only a normal apprtience show perhpas. Cindy is the point why I want to watch this show. Cindy has personality and she is always the TOP GUN in each task. Well she gets her personality but you cannot say that she is a terrible player. I love CINDY !

very bad decision... Holly is rude and an all out bitch.. she was the project manager and made all the decisions EXCEPT what went into Cindys room and for us who were watching... she condescendingly "let" Cindy do her thing in that room...to keep her away from the rest of the project which failed miserably... the only thing they liked was Cindys room ... which holly had nothing to do with but pick the color and she purposely picked red .. which was opposite of her zen coloes ... hoping to make Cindy look even worse... I do not understand trumps reasoning... In the past, he fired project managers solely because their team lost the project... her decorating decisions sucked! and the only thing they liked was Cindy's efforts... this was soooo wrong!! I will NOT be watching.. the rest of the season !!!

MR.Trump,You made wrong decision! Cyndi was huge concurrence to Holly and Brat. That's why Cyndi got fired. Bret was under Holly's skirt But Bret misery came up when he came to hug Cyndi on her way to elevator, talking about Manager timing... Mr.Trump you made bad decision!!

I AM WATCHING APPRENTICE BECAUSE OF CINDY STYLES...NOW SHE FIRED BECAUSE OF TELLING THE TRUTH IN BUSINESS WORLD, MAKE ME SICK OF DONALD...NEVER GONNA WATCH APPRENTICE THAT ENCOURAGES DISHONESTY IN BUSINESS AND HOLLY BRET CRAPS!!!

Little Don-Don should have worried about remembering his lines next time rather than trying to blame cindy for losing. She did nothing to contribute to their loss and actually was their only redemption. What a bad call, she's 2-for-2 on getting over.

I won't be watching anymore. Without Cyndi its pathetic. Holly is horrible!

Holly whoeversheis is jealous jealous jealous of Cyndi Lauper. She disses her every chance she gets to anyone who will listen.
posted by Eve on May 10, 2010
I agreee. What a lame reason to fire someone, because they do not lower themselves by arguing. That's what GOOD management is for, to see through the crap, and not put up with the crap. Holly's style is crap.

Holly Sucks BIG TIME - Holly HAS to GO

Poor choice of who to fire...I think that's the second time Holly got a pass. Donald must like her. What the judges didn't like : 1) Seafoam green (Holly) 2) Cluttered look (Holly) 3) Stuff looked cheap (Holly) It was ridiculous to fire Cindy...even if she is not a good arguer.

A huge mistake on your part Donald. You will regret it in the wrong run and quite frankley its gonna look good on you. Cyndi showed us ''how to lives our lives right'' You go Cyndi and keep on havin your fun : )

Holly would never let Cindy talk. She cut her off at every sentence and every Idea she had. Holly can't wait to see you go.

It's about time Cyndi got fired. She's so weird!
posted by Pixie on May 10, 2010
Donald -- you made a lousy and incorrect decision firing Cyndi. Holly should have been let go. She was the leader. Have we all forgotten how lazy she really is? You go Cyndi! I wasn't even a fan of Ms. Lauper until I saw her "True Colors" on the Apprentice. Poor and unjust decisions such as firing Cyndi makes one not want to watch the show.

FIRSTLY,HOLLY only picked red, because Cindy insisted on a vibrant colour. Cindy could have pulled it off with any colour. Besides, all good designers, get specific input from their clilents....in this case, Cindy got the info from the p.m. Also, Cindy worked the hardest on that team. DONÁLD EVEN LOOK AT THE VIDEOS!!!! Brett, your head is so far up HOLLY'S BUTT.!!!! YOU LIED ABOUT CINDY to save your BUTT, and you said you would lie. DONÁLD EVEN LOOK AT THE VIDEOS!!!!IF you did, you would have seen who worked the hardest...MR TRUMP...in my books...YOUR FIRED~!!!!! BAD CHOICE with no substance...YOU ALWAYS PICK THE ONE WITH THE BIGGEST MOUTH. That is not always good business practice. Cindy is still performing and we ALL know her...but WHO THE HELL IS HOLLY????

What is up with the Donald? Holly is a bossy person, what happen to firing the PM for a bad job, Donald you really fired the wrong person, Cyndi,worked hard, I don't understand your standards?

Holly is CHEAP and it shows in her taste! She is disrespectful,bossy and has NO CLASS! Cin was the best!@!! GO Home Holly!!!! NO One Likes YOU!!!
posted by Cherchez la Femme on May 10, 2010
Cindy was robbed, quite plainly. The person who did the best room and worked the hardest is the one fired?! Unbelievable. All that greasy-haired Trump compadre could focus on is Holly 'thought up the red paint'. BFD, it takes much more than paint color to make a room, dummy! All Cindy had to say in response to that was "Sea Foam green" (which looked like vomit green, honestly), which HRP also picked saying how *wonderful* it was. Gag. Holly Robinson Peete is a no-talent, cowardly, uptight B**** who should have gone LONG ago. She hasn't a creative bone in her body and is NO businesswoman. The only thing she excels at is being boring, dull and conservative (not talking politically -- don't know her politics) and her only talent is blaming others for her mistakes. For God's sake she almost didn't let Cindy SING in the last show but did she admit that?! Hell no! At that, Cindy only sung ONE out of three commercials -- Holly's idea? Peete also wouldn't have picked Autism as her cause unless it effected her own family. Cindy isn't even gay but has the compassion to work for a cause that causes hurt for many people throughout the world. And that two-faced, crass Bret Michaels lost what little respect I had left for that 'hair band' BALD manwhore. The only worthwhile contender left is Sharon Osbourne; if she doesn't win against the no-talents she's left with I'll never watch that piece of crap show again; IF I ever forgive them for what they did to Cindy. No wonder Trump has gone bankrupt multiple times if those are his kind of well thought out 'executive decisions'.

Cyndi needed to say to Donald, "Yes Holly picked red, but she also picked the horribly ugly seafoam green." Holly should have been fired for losing her second project as project manager. The only project she won was because she raised a lot of money for her charity, which she does for a living.

One week their firing people because of the task. The next it's how they argue in the boardroom. Last night they never even talked about Holly's decorating loss. It was all about yelling in the boardroom. Inconsistant. All for ratings. Holly Peete is a carbon copy of Annie Duke.
