The 54-year-old singer rejoins the show as a member of the men team after she claims that she did not have a fair chance to defend herself in last week's episode.
One is out and another is in on the May 1 episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice". Hope Dworaczyk was fired by Donald Trump, while La Toya Jackson will rejoin the game next week after she met the businessman at the beginning of the show to defend her firing last week.
Earlier in the show, the two teams were tasked to produce a live hair show featuring Farouk Hair System products and Farouk hair stylists. Each team got two professional stylists and four models for their hair shows. Lil Jon led the men team, NeNe Leakes was project manager for the women team after Star Jones suggested her name.
The drama in ASAP began right away as NeNe declared how she was fed up of Star's bossy and manipulative ways. NeNe further felt Star did not have the right to suggest anything, but told her to "bring her street game", because she was not afraid of her.
BackBone, meanwhile, got right down to business and called fired "Celebrity Apprentance" co-star Niki Taylor to help them with their show. When Farouk visited them, he informed the team that the product's highlight is the safety. Ivanka Trump was surprised by how the team appeared to be over confident.
The three remaining male contestants, Lil Jon, John Rich and Meatloaf shared the duty well. But when the rehearsal began, they seemingly had no real plan and Meatloaf was disappointed. Lil Jon served as the MC during the show, which had some long pauses. When Niki showed up, the show came back to life.
In ASAP, the women were not happy that Niki was back and worked with the men. For their show, they picked "Shake Your Beauty" as the theme. During the completion of the task, NeNe could not help it but dissing Star on the camera, saying "Star may have lost a lot of weight on the outside but she is still fat in her brain."
When Ivanka visited them, NeNe once again let loose of what she thought about her team mate. Despite the tension, the women team's show went well until Hope went on stage and dropped the bomb. NeNe said she looks like Big Bird because her hair was so poofy.
In the board room, Trump announced the men won the task although Farouk was disappointed that they did not articulate what the products did for safety. They got $40,000 which is donated to United Methodist Children's Home.
As for the women's work, Farouk felt there was not a theme. NeNe was additionally judged as a weak MC and Hope's performance did not impress the execs. They were soon informed that La Toya will rejoin the show and help the men team.
When it was time to decide who should go home, NeNe told Trump that either Hope or Star should be fired, while Marlee Matlin was allowed to leave the board room first. Hope and Star tried to gang up on NeNe and told Trump about the things she has said about La Toya. At the end, Trump told Hope that this is just not her world, and he fired her.
