The Donald really shocked not only the remaining Celebrity Apprentice contestants in tonight's episode but the many fans of Khloe Kardashian by firing her from the show. Even I was shocked and I have been watching The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice through all of its incarnations. I thought for sure that Clint Black, the team leader, would be fired.
Since both teams had failed at the task and there was no winner, Donald told the team leaders consisting of Clint and Melissa Rivers, to come back to the boardroom and bring two of their team members.

In all fairness Clint thought he would be fired because of the racy nature of the viral video he developed and for all the bickering he had with Joan Rivers. He picked Khloe Kardashian and pro golfer Natalie Gulbis to go back to the Boardroom with him.
Clint told Khloe and Natalie in the hall outside the boardroom that he was sure he would be fired and they would be safe. Khloe didn't seem so sure and even questioned if she might be fired. Clint didn't think there was a risk. Obviously he was wrong.
When Clint, Khloe and Natalie were in the boardroom Mr. Trump asked Clint and Natalie if they wanted to continue. They both said they did even though it meant keeping their careers on hold. Then The Donald talked about the fact Khloe had missed part of last week's episode because she had to fly back to Los Angeles. He told Khloe he had no idea why she had to leave until he saw her upon return and asked her why she was absent. She explained about her Driving Under The Influence (DUI) and her requirement to go to classes. She explained her judge was not happy she had left LA to be on The Celebrity Apprentice.
Donald proceeded to talk about how much he was upset by anyone who drove while under the influence of alcohol. He referenced the problems with Dennis Rodman, who obviously had a drinking issue. He told Khloe that he personally knew families who lost children to someone driving while drunk. He said he supported the mothers who fought to get awareness.
He also asked Khloe what charity she was playing for. She said it was the "The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness" which Donald discussed with her. Then The Donald said he didn't want her charity to suffer because of her actions so he was going to donate $20,000 to the charity. He also said if he had known Khloe had the DUI he would not have let her be on the show.
Then he fired her. Which seemed to come out of nowhere and was actually surprising from the viewpoint of why he said she was fired. I did think Khloe was on thin ice and blogged about it after last week's episode.
In her exit interview in the famous limo the beautiful Khloe (I am a fan) told the cameras "I don't think Mr. Trump made the right decision. I'm trying to fix something I did wrong. It just sucks that I had to go out this way. I don't want people to remember this way. But it is what it is. I'm not Donald Trump."
I agree. Khloe did make a serious mistake of driving under the influence but she has been very repentent about it and has been working hard to turn her life around. I think that is very commendable. It is also praiseworthy that she was playing for a charity dedicated to education about the impact of drugs and alcohol on everyone's life.
