All-Star Celebrity Apprentice offered two surprises in the second episode of season 5 last night.
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who was the project manager for the week's challenge, was eliminated by the show's creator Donald Trump.
"I respect you. Dee, I don't want to fire you. You're a solid guy," Trump told Snider. "Dee, you're fired. Get out. You've been terrific."
The other shocker was when the brazen and outspoken Celebrity Apprentice alum Omarosa Manigault broke down in tears and cried after she learned that as project manager, she won the week's challenge.
Manigault's idea was to raise money for the Sue Duncan Children's Center in honor of her late fiancé', actor Michael Duncan Clarke who was affiliated with the center. Clarke died from a heart attack last year. Snider was competing for The Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS charity.
In the beginning of the episode, Manigault said she couldn't express how much it would mean to her if she won the task "to celebrate Michael's legacy."
She later learned she had won after Trump tricked everyone when he announced the week's winner.
"Dee, congratulations...you lost!" Trump told Snider.
When Manigault began to cry, Trump joked that he has to "confirm if that's real or not" referring to her tears.
"She's been through a lot," Trump said about her emotional outburst to the rest of the cast.
"I just miss him so much," Manigault said as she cried about Duncan. "'I think it's a great tribute to Michael."
"She's very emotional," said Trump. He then revealed that the week's original prize of $20,000 was being doubled to $40,000.
"I think sometimes I'm so strong people forget what I've been through," she replied.
The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice cast for season 6 includes Trace Adkins, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, Marilu Henner, La Toya Jackson, Penn Jillette, Lil Jon, Claudia Jordan, Manigault, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick, Dennis Rodman, and Snider.
Poison star Bret Michaels was eliminated in the season premiere on Sunday, March 3.
