Although I haven’t been recapping Survivor this season, I while back I was compelled to write about Colton Cumbie‘s disgusting comments and behavior on the current season of the hit reality show. Well, now I feel compelled to do the same for comedian Lisa Lampanelli and her behavior on Celebrity Apprentice.
In case you haven’t been watching this season, Lampanelli has had it out for Dayana Mendoza for weeks now and has lost her cool on more than one occasion. The ganging up on Mendoza with Lisa and her other teammates coupled with the numerous vicious attacks on her intelligence because she’s a model and/or because English isn’t her first language have left a bad taste in my mouth.
In last night’s episode, both Lampanelli and Clay Aiken had at different times yelled at Mendoza and undermined her authority as project manager. Sure Mendoza may have rubbed them the wrong way a few times, but in my opinion that is as a result of Aiken and Lampanelli being unable to let go of their egos and their inability to show Mendoza the least bit of respect as a human being. Mendoza knew that there was no way out of the boardroom alive this time round and she was sent home.
In particular with Lampanelli, she continually boasts about how successful she is and it just irks me to see someone so full of themselves and so self righteous (yeah, Aubrey O’Day is another story, but she’s improved a bit since a few episodes ago). Seeing this side of Lampanelli has certainly changed my opinion of her and I do help she seeks out help for her anger problem. I personally cannot stand working with people who can’t control their temper. It’s destructive, counterproductive and unprofessional.
I dont’ doubt that Lisa is a good person with a big heart, and I love that her charity is the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, I just feel that when she lashes out with such hurtful comments, it by far overshadows the good. What are your thoughts on Lisa Lampanelli’s erratic behavior in this season of Celebrity Apprentice?
