"The Celebrity Apprentice" continued with another loss for women team which also marked the end of Dionne Warwick's stint. On March 27, the two teams were given a task to create a thirty second commercial for ACN which would be scored on originality, creativity and branding. The women chose NeNe Leakes as the project manager while the men chose Lil Jon.

The women team made an emotional video to promote ACN video phone, featuring a deaf mother who is able to connect via sign language with her daughter using the new ACN video phone. The men, meanwhile, took the risk by putting on a message of connecting with gay family members.

It turned out that the executives loved the sense of humor in the men's commercial. Donald Trump announced that the vote from 450 employees was 53 to 47 percent in favor of the men. The winning team got twenty thousand dollars from Trump and a matching donation from ACN.

In the board roam, Warwick's lack of contribution to the effort was soon brought up. Warwick went to bed while her partners were editing the final video, but she insisted that she did not have much to help anyway and that she had asked for approval before going home.

La Toya Jackson did not do much in the challenge as well. But when Warwick stated that she should be the one fired because the other contestants do not like her, Trump agreed with her and sent her home. On her way out, Warwick gave Leakes a hug but called her a "coward", claiming Leakes hadn't made her stay in the editing room to help.
