On this week’s Celebrity Apprentice, tensions ran high on the women’s team after the dramatic firing of Tia Carrere for her failings on the previous task.
So could the reeling ladies pick up their game, pull things together to get back to their winning ways? And who did Donald Trump end up firing at the end?
No, and Patricia Velasquez.

The world was most definitely watching.
Following astounding takes at both midnight showings and overall on opening day, The Hunger Games has shocked even its most ardent followers by earning $155 million between Friday and Sunday, the third biggest opening of all-time in Hollywood.
“It was the perfect storm. Having the first film in a franchise to be so gigantic is amazing. We had a great book and a great director in Gary Ross,” said Lionsgate president of marketing Tim Palen.

Rick Santorum posted another convincing win in yesterday’s Louisiana’s GOP primary, but still faces doubts over whether he can broaden his appeal to win the race.
The Republican presidential candidate said the race was far from over, recalling the naysayers who said Ronald Reagan was too conservative to win the nomination.
But the road ahead is difficult for Santorum, who’s slogging it out a game of numbers to clinch the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the party’s nomination.
Santorum will win at least eight of the 20 delegates up for grabs, according to CNN. Going into Louisiana, MittMore >
The judge in the Casey Anthony case ordered the names of the jurors to remain secret for their protection, tearing the media a new one in the process.
Judge Belvin Perry cited the “circus-like atmosphere” around the trial in the name of entertainment rather than justice for putting the jurors at risk.
Jury members’ identities will be sealed until at least October 25.
“The jurors in this case face the possibility of substantial injury if their names are made public,” Perry ruled, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Florida law requires that the names beMore >
The bidding war for Casey Anthony interviews is off the proverbial hook.
According to reports, a syndicated talk show was laughed at with a bid of $250,000 … and that was just for Casey’s parents, George and Cindy!
An interview with Casey Anthony herself? That’ll cost you $1.5 million.
It may be too much for one player. ABC News just released a statement saying it will no longer pay for photos and video in exchange for interviews.
Casey’s defense lawyer, Jose Baez, was holed up in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City last week, taking bids from NBC, ABC and CBS.

People already up in arms over the Casey Anthony verdict may not want to read this new report, which indicates that they financed a big part of it.
Wherever she’s in hiding, no need to worry about legal bills reaching her – $119,000 in defense fees racked up during her trial are being covered.
Thank you, Florida taxpayers! All taken care of!
Another pending $5,800 in fees that Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez has billed to his client’s case has put the state’s taxpayer tab at just shy of $125,000.
As per Florida law, public coffers have been covering Anthony’s defense costs since all the wayMore >
Casey Anthony’s lawyer Jose Baez is reportedly at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, holding meetings with all of the major TV networks.
NBC, ABC and CBS are all competing for the first interview with the accused child murderer, and you can bet HUGE dollar amounts are involved.
Sources connected with the negotiations say there is a “big price tag.”
The networks don’t technically pay for interviews, however, they can offer to license photos and other material and pay whatever amount Baez asks.
NBC, which is paying for Baez’s hotel room, looks like the frontrunner, but ABC is inMore >
It was one of the prosecution’s most damning pieces of evidence: Casey Anthony allegedly searched for the word “chloroform” on her computer 84 times.
During the trial, Casey’s mom tried to cover for her daughter and said she actually checked Google for this term, but witnesses and work records later disproved that account. Still, of course, the jury deemed Casey not guilty of killing her two-year old child.
Now, John Bradley – a computer-forensics consultant who testified to these searches – has gone on record with The New York Times: Anthony only searched once for “chloroform,” an errorMore >
Caylee Anthony was murdered.
So stated Dr. Jan Garavaglia, a semi-famous coroner, who testified in court today during the Casey Anthony trial.
The defense has been arguing that the two-year old daughter of their defendant died of an accidental drowning, but there’s “no other logical conclusion” aside from homicide, said Garavaglia, the Orange County chief medical examiner.
How can Garavaglia state this as a fact? She reached the conclusion based on the condition of Caylee’s remains and other factors, including the discovery of duct tape around her skull.More >
The Voice is coming to NBC.
