Gary Busey Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice"
Actor Gary Busey will not continue in the NBC reality show.
Gary Busey was fired on Sunday night’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice. Busey was the project manager for the men’s team. The actor was raising funds for the Center for Head Injury Services, a Maryland Heights-based charity.
Busey frustrated his teammates on the Sunday night episode. Men’s team member John Rich accused Busey of calling him “boy.” In the boardroom, Busey defended himself by saying he actually called Rich “ka-boy,” as in “cowboy.”
The women’s team won the evening. Hope Dworaczyk, a former Playboy Playmate of the Year, won $20,000 for Best Buddies. Omaha Steaks, the company the night’s challenge focused on, will also donate funds to the organization.
In the board room, Lil’ Jon, John Rich and Meat Loaf showed their frustrations about Busey’s leadership. In the end, master of ceremonies Donald Trump fired Busey.
“Well I think that one was pretty obvious,” Trump said after Busey left the boardroom.
“Fact is my team mates did not like me,” Busey said as a limousine drove him away. He added, “I can turn a thunderstorm into a rainbow, and I’m flying over the rainbow tonight.”
