Sleeveless wonder and Orange County Choppers cofounder Paul Teutul Sr. was fired on Sunday’s (April 15) episode of “The Celebrity Apprentice” for bringing Aubrey O’Day back into the boardroom rather than Arsenio Hall — at least according to Donald Trump’s final words to him. But Paul, for one, thinks he deserved to go.
“I just think that I was at the point where I was too tired to move forward,” he tells Zap2it. “Don’t forget that I’m shooting two shows at the same time.”
He is, of course, referring to the Discovery Channel series “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior,” which chronicles the competition between Paul Sr.’s OCC and his son Paul Teutul Jr.’s motorcycle shop, Paul Jr. Designs.
But two reality shows and a successful motorcycle business aren’t the only things keeping Paul busy, as he’s preparing to open a series of OCC Cafe restaurants with locations at his New Jersey shop, in Miami and in four other yet-to-be-determined locations.
Wonder if fellow New Jersey resident and “The Celebrity Apprentice” competitor Teresa Giudice, whom Paul chose to join him and Aubrey in the boardroom, will be dining at his establishment. She said on Sunday’s episode that she felt like he threw her under the bus.
“If you don’t bring two people back into the boardroom they fire two,” Paul says. “I said what I had to say, and of course she took it personal and she just reacted to it.”
Do you think Paul should have been fired? Do you think he actually threw Teresa under the bus?
