The Apprentice - Martha Stewart Edition

Some very disjointed thoughts on the show last night.

Very nice - Very Martha set. Clean, light, open/airy as opposed to the masculine, heavy wooden feeling of The Donald's set.

OH MY FREAKIN' WORD - could these people whine anymore? "It's Jeff's fault." "Dawn never signed on to the project." "She took a nap while the rest of us were working." Blah blah. It's so shrill I had to hit mute. They argued more than the kids who they were pitching their book to.

"You just don't fit in." What the heck kind of punch is that? How weak. How feminine. "The first to not fully succeed." They show her sending a hand written note to the ejected applicant. It was good to get a more depth explanation of the reasoning behind the firing.

In the preview, she states "No whining. No complaining. Women in business don't cry, my dear." Ahhh... return of Martha Stewart, the Ice Queen.
