Another contestant from “Celebrity Apprentice” 2012 can finally break her silence. Aubrey O’Day didn’t hold back on Sunday’s episode when she said “f**k them” to whomever called her “transparent.” Donald Trump said 2011 winner John Rich and runner-up Marlee Matlin thought she was very see-through in her way of playing the game on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Aubrey was upset she was fired and thought she should have stayed as one of the two finalists.
In a new interview, Aubrey spoke her mind. The pop star insists the confidence and strength she displayed as a player should have served her well on “Celebrity Apprentice” 2012.
“I worked the hardest, I had the most ideas, and the thing about this show is it’s not a show about building teams,” O’Day said. “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.”
Aubrey added that she didn’t go into the show expecting make friends — although she and Lisa Lampanelli were pretty tight throughout the season.
As for the final two — Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall — Aubrey doesn’t respect them as the ones Donald Trump picked to win the whole competition. If Aubrey didn’t have to go back for their final challenge, why did she accept returning…only to be picked last by Clay to join his team?
Aubrey continued, “I thought that it was a good thing to go back and help raise money for someone else’s charity and it was a good thing to show them that regardless of whether I’m in it or I’m out of it or I’m the project manager or I’m simply helping, etc., that I worked as hard consistently always, and I wanted to prove that, so in doing so, I made Clay’s finale like a thousand times better than anything Arsenio’s team did.”
Who of the two undeserving finalists does Aubrey think will win “Celebrity Apprentice” 2012? The fired celebrity felt Lisa was taking control of Arsenio’s challenge and leaned towards Clay’s. She’s a big part of Clay’s charity event, so it stands to reason she would support him over Arsenio.
“It looks like Arsenio wasn’t even trying to take a leadership position. I think that Clay definitely tried to step up and take a leadership position, and I also think that Penn had a wonderful idea with the presentation of the video that he came up with. But yeah, I mean you’ll see the differences in the parties and the money that’s raised, etc. I think that Clay far outweighs anything that Arsenio Hall did.”
Part 2 of the “Celebrity Apprentice” 2012 finale airs next Sunday, May 20th on NBC at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT.
