First off, I wanted to give the link to NeNe’s charity, Atlanta Mission: My Sister’s House, which I couldn’t figure out last week. Thanks to astute reader Kathleen for sending it my way. Well, I’m awake now and not even miserable. Let’s see how I feel in three hours. Honestly, I’m not sure what NBC’s trying to do with a three-hour episode other than fill airtime. Maybe their master plan is to make people so sick of Trump that no one votes for him if he runs for president? Because I can’t imagine three hours of this show would help him win.
Anyway, here we go. Previously: NeNe and Star battled, but Hope went home when the ladies lost. And the guys got a new teammate when Trump let La Toya come back. In the suite, everyone tells La Toya how much Trump thinks of her to bring her back. Marlee interviews that it’s not fair that La Toya got to come back. NeNe and Star come back then, though. Star isn’t in the mood to hang out, so she leaves while NeNe hangs out with everyone. Star interviews that she told NeNe she’d talk, but she has no intention of that. Back in the suite, Marlee asks NeNe what they’re going to do now, and NeNe interviews that Star leaving shows just how weak she is. “Come on back and play with the big girls, honey.” Ew. “Money, money, money.” Remember David Cassidy? Yeah, me neither.
Lil Jon gets to present another check for $40,000 to United Methodist Children’s Home, making him the only project manager to win twice. Which is somewhat impressive, actually.
The next day, the teams line up in front of Trump. He says he was hoping Star and NeNe could work it out, but he doesn’t think that can happen. NeNe doesn’t agree, but Star does. So Trump switches NeNe and Meat Loaf. Star interviews that she’d never stoop to NeNe’s level, but she worried if they stayed on the same team that NeNe would attempt to bring her there. She sure does talk a lot of nonsense, doesn’t she? But now, on to the task: They’re going to produce a comedy show. Each team will get three comedians and fifty tickets to sell, which they can sell for as much as they want. It’s ultimately going to be about who gets the most total money. His advisers will be Ivanka and Jim Cramer. The newbies — Meat Loaf and La Toya — are going to be the project managers. John Rich thinks that with La Toya on their team, fundraising should be excellent, because she’s a Jackson and is one phone call away from everyone. The winning team gets the money they all raise. Trump asks Star if she feels better, and she says she does. NeNe, however, does not. She interviews that she’s not sure what she’s going to do, but she needs some time.
