He came out on the cover of People magazine just after his son was born in 2008.
I didn't even know he had a son. Thanks. (2008? Wow. That's so long ago! I'm certain I've seen more recent references to the uncertainty -- clearly from people as unaware as myself.)
Regarding Michael Andretti, I get the sense that since he was just drafted late in the game to fill in for his son, Trump is giving him an easy early ride, with not much focus on him or drama involving him. If that's so, I figure he might leave before the end without a spectacular showdown.
Since Dee was having surgery for a fracture that happened on the show, I would think that a firing over his absence this week would be out of the question, so although Trump asked the other men about it, I don't think he would have let
them bring Dee back into the boardroom, if they'd tried. (Arsenio did keep hinting at it, but I think he may have just been joking, knowing it wouldn't happen.)
It looked more to me like [Clay] was intended to be just a co-worker, but there shouldn't have been any ambiguity. One of the models should have been done up to clearly be the boss, with the right props and an obvious distinction between her style of dress and the others
I thought the men might have mistakenly felt all their models had to be standing
to model the clothes. It’s partly the fact that three women were standing in front of a man’s desk that made him look like the boss talking to underlings.
I was wondering if Ivanka didn't join the boardroom because she didn't agree that the women had won.
Ivanka this time was playing the role of a company executive whose product is being promoted by the teams. Do the company execs who pick the winning team also play one of Trump’s two generals in the boardroom in other episodes? It seemed right to me that she wasn’t there.
These two-hour episodes are soooo bloated. The show would have much better pacing in an hour format. Also, I think I speak for all of American when I say no one gives a flying fuck about Dee Snyder's finger. I'm in as long as Patricia remains. If and when she is sent home, I'm out.
I actually see all three things differently: I could take an even longer show, believe it or not; I do care about Dee’s injury, especially as it happened on the show; and I never heard of Patricia before, and I’m in it til the final firing/hiring!
while you're waiting in traffic for an hour
As often as Apprentice tasks are held up by traffic, I wonder if taking the subway is ruled out (perhaps because it’s harder to film there). Unless you’re carrying heavy stuff or dressed in eveningwear and heels, if you want to get somewhere in/near midtown Manhattan fast, especially during weekday business/rush hours, zipping along underground in the subway is quicker. Maybe the Trumps never heard of mass transit (as a viable option for non-homeless people). : )
