All of Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" delusion at TCA

16 January 2015 3:41 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There was no shortage of delusion on display when Donald Trump faced television critics this morning, with the remaining cast of "Celebrity Apprentice" at his side along with the NBC show's executive producer, Mark Burnett. And even though it came from Donald Trump, it was surprising. First, he did actually offer some fair criticism of his own show and the way it had become bloated with two-hour episodes. Discussing its increased ratings this season compared to its previous season, Trump said, "I think a big factor is that we went to a one-show. ... They started putting it on a lot, and they started making it very long. A two-hour format is a very, very, very long show." Later, he said, "I just think two hours its too long for one show. Nobody wants to watch an hour and 20 minutes of a task." Trump said, "I think that has a huge »

And even after all the controversy, boss Donald Trump still thought Pulliam should've asked for the money, which went to charity. On Trump's side?

"Obviously any big change requires all kinds of voices, all kinds of action," protest organizer Melanie Baker said. "This is the one we chose."

Inside the venue Wednesday, Cosby stuck to his routine and received a standing ovation, despite the ruckus outside.

During Thursday's performance in London, Ontario, several reports claim that the 77-year-old comedian made light of his recent sexual abuse allegations after he called out a woman who told him she was going to get a drink during his performance. He reportedly responded, saying, "You have to be careful about drinking around me."

Following Apprentice Ejection, Keshia Knight Pulliam Speaks Up About Bill Cosby

5 January 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you watched The Celebrity Apprentice last night, maybe you felt uncomfortable when Keshia Knight Pulliam — who played Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show — was essentially fired for not calling her former TV dad for money. Making the postmortem TV interview rounds Monday, the actress told Today and Access Hollywood that putting in that kind of call to Cosby would have been tactless and tacky because she hadn't talked to him in years. Despite the fact the Apprentice episode was filmed in March, before Cosby's sexual-assault accusation maelstrom, Pulliam also addressed the flurry of allegations currently lobbed at the comedy legend."I wasn't there. I can only speak to the great man that I know and love, who has been so generous, who has been such a philanthropist and giving back millions of dollars to education and schools.

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Food Fights

Another two bite the dust!

The Celebrity Apprentice settled into its regular time slot Monday (8/7c), bidding a harsh farewell to a pair of beloved(ish) celebs.

In the first hour, Teams Vortex and Infinity were charged with producing commercials for Neat, a de-cluttering software company — which couldn’t have been more ironic, considering how quickly the competition became a total mess.

But let’s start with the good: The ladies, with Kate Gosselin as their fearless project manager, churned out a solid-if-slightly-limited ad, netting $40K for Gosselin’s charity, Camp Barnabas. (Side note: Is anyone else disappointed that Gosselin »

Keshia Knight Pulliam Speaks Out in Support of Bill Cosby

5 January 2015 6:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on “The Cosby Show,” spoke out in support of Bill Cosby on “Access Hollywood Live,” and said she “can’t ignore the legacy he’s built over the last 50 years,” amid more than 20 recent rape allegations that have surfaced against him.

“Ultimately, I really can’t speak to that,” Pulliam said of the allegations. “Whoever is involved, those are the people who were there. I wasn’t there. I can only speak to the great man that I know and love, who has been so generous, who has been such a philanthropist and giving back millions of dollars to education and schools. And just the man I grew up knowing. It’s really not my place to speak on that.
