Either Clay Aiken or Arsenio Hall will be crowned the Celebrity Apprentice champion on Sunday night. But it’s not a final grilling by Donald Trump they have to worry about — it’s an InsideTV Podcast grilling from yours truly! The two finalists stopped by to talk all about the big finale and to also look back at the highs and lows of another crazy Celebrity Apprentice season. Can Arsenio find one redeeming quality in Aubrey O’Day? Does Clay regret his treatment of Dayana Mendoza on the show during the Good Sam jingle task? And did Clay have sex with Lisa Lampanelli? Wait…WHAT?!? It’s that kind of podcast, with lots of unexpected twists, turns, and bleeped out words you are not supposed to say on a family-friendly podcast. Before all is said and done, we’ll be reminiscing about the glory days of Chunky A and Clay’s unfortunate performance of “Grease” on American Idol. If you’re fan of Celebrity Apprentice, or just a fan of listening to two smart and funny guys constantly and consistently cracking each other up, then this is the podcast for you. READ FULL STORY

'Celebrity Apprentice': Get ready for my favorite picture ever and a truly bizarre finale entrance by Donald Trump -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO
I have to apologize. I would have posted this sooner, but I was incapacitated for a good half hour due to excessive laughter brought on by the sight of the following photo. I can’t really explain why I find it so funny, but it just is. Well, take a look for yourself and then we can discuss… READ FULL STORY
'Celebrity Apprentice': See Lisa Lampanelli roast Clay Aiken and Donald Trump in the finale -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
They don’t call her the Queen of Mean for nothing, people. Lisa Lampanelli may have berated poor Dayana Mendoza on a regular basis during this season of The Celebrity Apprentice, but perhaps the notorious roaster was just using that as a warm-up for her main event. And that main event occurs this Sunday evening during The Celebrity Apprentice finale when she performs at Arsenio Hall’s big charity event. Will she keep it clean? HELL NO! In this exclusive clip, Lisa does not hold back when she addresses topics such as Clay Aiken’s sexuality and Donald Trump’s oh-so-unique hairline. How far will she go? And how will Clay and Trump — who are both standing right there — react? Click on the video player below to see for yourself.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Aubrey O'Day talks Fidel Castro, her controversial comments about Arsenio Hall, and why she should not have been fired
She was one of the most polarizing characters in Celebrity Apprentice history — a remarkable feat when you consider some of the people that have done time on that show. But Aubrey O’Day’s quest for the Celebrity Apprentice crown came to an end last night when Donald Trump fired her — leaving Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall to battle it out for the title. Never one to be shy with her opinions, Aubrey now looks back at her time on the program. Does she regret being so aggressive and domineering? What about calling Arsenio Hall “the biggest girl on this show?” And can we finally get to the bottom of what she was doing chillin’ with Fidel Castro? We can! Ladies and gentleman, Aubrey O’Day — unfiltered. Prepare yourselves.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Should you have been in the final two, Aubrey?
AUBREY O’DAY: Absolutely. I mean, just in watching last night when Trump asked us all why, I was the only one out of the three of us to say that I was the strongest player there. I mean, it’s a confidence factor, it’s just a fact. I worked the hardest, I had the most ideas, and the thing about this show is it’s not a show about building teams. It’s not a show about a team winning. It’s a show about one person winning. It’s a show about one person being able to be the most effective leader, and you know, there is no I in team, but there is an I in leadership, and that is what this show is about. With Danity Kane and Making The Band, it was about the group, which is why you always saw me fighting so hard for the group or fighting for what the group needed or doing what was best for the group in that scenario. But in this specific scenario, I never went in it wanting to make friends or thinking that anyone was really my friend, because that’s never the case in situations like this. You’re lucky if you walk out of it with someone that you enjoy spending time with. READ FULL STORY
'Celebrity Apprentice': Clue to final challenge revealed as Adam Carolla is scared off by a giant fake [NSFW] -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
We still don’t know who will be the final two battling it out to win The Celebrity Apprentice, but we now have a clue as to at least part of the task that will help determine the winner. In this exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode, Adam Carolla — one of several fired celebs brought back to assist on the final project — mentions that they need to put together a 30 second public service announcement. While we aren’t told what the PSA is for, we do get to see Adam and Teresa Giudice embark on a shopping spree at a local costume shop. And something they find there seems to greatly disturb the comedian. Then again, if a creepy costume shop guy tried to get me to enter a “conjugal visit” dungeon littered with giant penis statues, I too might think twice. To enjoy the type of wonderfully absurd encounter you can only find on Celebrity Apprentice, click on the video below. And for more reality ramblings you can follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Lisa Lampanelli says she does 'absolutely not' regret her treatment of Dayana Mendoza (including using that racial slur)
Lisa Lampanelli is going to tell you what she thinks. She will say it loud and she will say it often. Unfortunately for Dayana Mendoza, what Lisa thought of her was not all that much. Mendoza was on the receiving end of a barrage of Lampanelli-led insults on this season of Celebrity Apprentice, and last week Dayana told us what it was like dealing with such venom. Now that she too has been eliminated, it’s Lisa’s turn to talk. Does she regret the things she said to Dayana on the show? What about off the show (including that racial slur she uttered during a radio interview)? Lisa also weighs in on other topics including: her BFF Aubrey O’Day, negotiating with Teresa Giudice, whether her temper kept her out of the final two, and whom she thinks should win (her answer may surprise you). Hey, they don’t call her the Queen of Mean for nothing!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So after all that screaming, after all that cursing, after all that crying, how dare you go out with class and dignity at the end when Trump fired you? What the hell happened?
LISA LAMPANELLI: I know! Here’s what happened. When he said the hair dryer task was worth a hundred grand, something in my gut told me, I’m gonna win and I’m gonna go out on that note. Maybe this is giving Donald Trump too much credit, but I thought, he wants me to go out on a high note for really helping the charity and for working so hard. This is just my feeling. I go, “I’m not famous enough to be in the final two.” That was my whole feeling. In my gut, I kind of knew it and Aubrey kept trying to talk me out of it. I go, “Dude, I’m going home and I’m going to be happy about it because I can not wait to get some sleep. I can’t take it anymore.” READ FULL STORY
Donald Trump has been known to be prone to exaggeration, but I am not exaggerating in the least when I say that this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast is THE BEST PODCAST IN THE HISTORY OF PODCASTS! Why? Because our guest is none other than Celebrity Apprentice boardroom receptionist Amanda Miller! The beauty outside the boardroom stopped by to join Jessica Shaw and me and answer the most important questions on every viewer’s mind: Why the hell doesn’t she have a damn computer on her desk? What is she writing in that little notebook of hers? And is she having a secret love affair with Adrian the elevator operator? The truth finally comes out! (Including the truth as to what Amanda does for work when she is not on the show.)
We also ask Amanda to dish on all the celebrities that have come through her reception area on the way to see Trump. Who’s her favorite contestant ever? Which celebrities have tried to hit on her? And is she maybe just a little bit scared of Lisa Lampanelli? The charming and delightful Amanda answers all in what is truly a must-listen interview for any Celebrity Apprentice fan! READ FULL STORY

Like, literally, they were out.” Don’t believe her? Well, then click on the video player below and see for yourself.

Aubrey O’Day finally won a project for her charity on The Celebrity Apprentice, and last night she was able to present that charity, GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) with a check for $50,000 to aid in their anti-bullying efforts. “I hope to remember every day what I’m fighting for,” said O’Day on the show after handing over the money. “Even in my room I’ve posted all around my bed pictures of all the kids that have committed suicide from feeling bullied or abused. And I’m going to be thinking about them during every task, because that’s who matters. That’s why I’m here.”
Unfortunately, less than 10 minutes later, O’Day did not heed her own message of respect for others. After butting heads with project manager Arsenio Hall — who did not initially agree with O’Day’s suggestions to do either a cheerleading or tap dancing routine for their jingle-performing task — O’Day had this to say about Hall: “Arsenio is the biggest girl on this show, so I don’t know why he doesn’t like tap dancing or wearing cheerleading outfits. We all know he does it at home.” READ FULL STORY
'Celebrity Apprentice': Lisa Lampanelli goes berserk and curses out Dayana Mendoza -- EXCLUSIVE (AND AMAZING) VIDEO
The Hulk (Lou Ferrigno) may have already been eliminated from The Celebrity Apprentice, but you shouldn’t make Lisa Lampanelli angry either. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry. Just ask Dayana Mendoza, who has been on the receiving end of numerous verbal attacks from the notorious roaster. But all those incidents were mere appetizers for the main course this coming Sunday. The problems start when Dayana becomes Project Manager for a jingle-writing task. The problems continue when Dayana slights Lisa in front a visiting Don Jr. We now present you with a tasty morsel of the aftermath, as Dayana tries to bury the hatchet with a clearly enraged Lisa. Good luck with that! As you will see — and hear through several bleeped out epithets — Lisa is in no mood to play nice. Enjoy this exclusive clip that merits rewatching about 37 times, and then let us know which side you’re on: Team Lisa or Team Dayana.
