Her taxi cab scene was such fake nice-nice "I'm above it all" bullshiat. She's such a phoney.
 
2004-03-04 10:05:59 PM
Okay - so what are the predictions for winner?
 
2004-03-04 10:06:16 PM
"embrace diversity"??? She's saying everyone else (even Kwame?) was a racist.
Omorosa was a joke. So's the show. But it's not as bad as this article makes out...frankly, there are some good points being made.
Example - focus on doing or engaging in something you love.
Another one - don't make excuses, do your job.
Sure, pretty petty stuff. But in the business world, how many people don't do either? I see it every day.

lovelola, it's Troy. "Aw, shucks" wins every day in the USA.

ClumpyStool Donald Trump is a guy who inherited 60 million dollars when he was in his 20's & he got lucky in Real Estate At least he didnt blow it all like his brother
 
2004-03-04 10:09:40 PM
borg, he didn't get lucky. He ruined people to get his way. He's the most hated man in Atlantic City because of how he ripped off local businesses and destroyed the lives of some of the locals.
One person, who I know, did a job for him. 1/2 pay up front, 1/2 upon completion. Upon completion, Trump refused to pay because it "didn't live up to my expectations" (Taj Mahal). Yet Trump brags about how he got it all for well below cost....well, duh, asswipe...you STOLE IT!

That's my choice. Although Amy has a chance I think.
 
2004-03-04 10:10:31 PM
What prez did Omarosa work for? Clinton, nuff said.
 
2004-03-04 10:11:11 PM
lovelola, Amy's ok, but her relationship with Nick will do both of them in. Sex may sell, but it makes for a lousy business relationship.
 
2004-03-04 10:12:10 PM
I think it is hard to tell at this point who will win.

I want to see Omarosa be all fake on the Today show tomorrow morning. I may even pop up to Rockefeller Center just to watch it.
 
2004-03-04 10:13:14 PM
Omarosa in a nutshell:

At work:
"biatch biatch biatch!!! biatch biatch!!! You SO STUPID!! I AM AUSOME!!! FEAR MY LEETNESS!!! MUST EAT AT RESTAURANT!!! GRRRRR!! biatch biatch!! CONCUSSION!!"

One on One with the Camera:
"Yes, yes. I consider myself a very dignified person--I would try not to bring myself to their levels, replacing letters with numbers and such and such...I think Heidi really isn't giving it her all...I have a concusion, and it hurts--but I'm a trooper."

YOU BEEN OWNED BIOTCH!!!

I've seen three episodes--its a pretty okay show.

Didn't they only go out for a drink?? Are they having a relationship?

MrStench
Will she be on that tomorrow? Have they been all interviewed the morning after?

/obviously unemployed myself

Hempknight, my wife told me about the Clinton connection and I began laughing my balls off. How the hell does an "intelligent" president hire such trash?
I know how. I know because he drove my uncle (extremely qualified man with 25+ years of experience) from HUD. He didn't look for experience or knowledge. Clinton hired according to skin color and sexual alignment. That's not to say any of these people WEREN'T qualified, but it's hardly a basis to start the qualification process. My uncle left because his assistant (he was told to hire a minority, not based on qualifications) accused him of sexual harassment and racial discrimination. Of course, a woman just off the welfare rolls vs. a qualified, experienced worker of 25 years was MANIFESTLY more believable in the Clinton admin. Rather than face further humiliation (his salary was frozen as a result of the accusations), he retired.
Omorosa...loser hired by a loser.
 
2004-03-04 10:16:17 PM
Currently I am fascinated by the Donald's comb over. The part seems to start somewhere above one ear then the hair swirls all over his head

I saw him on conan and spent the entire time just trying to figure out his hair. And then continued my inspection when he was on the daily show. It's a very interesting comb over. Maybe that's keeping the publics interest.
 
2004-03-04 10:16:36 PM
I want to see where all the sex and more sex is. They talked about it in the article. Show it to me. Maybe I'm watching a different 'apprentice'?

/goes off to search for Omorosa having sex
 
2004-03-04 10:18:02 PM
Trump or monkey?
 
2004-03-04 10:18:37 PM
One last thing about Omorosa...anyone who uses the word "Classy" in a sentence is
A)lacking in class
B)has no idea what class is.

Omorosa, every other sentence, "I am a classy woman." "Heidi showed herself to lack classiness."
Omorosa...here's something - get some CLASS and drop the CLASSY.
 
2004-03-04 10:19:36 PM
Why does he say "You're Fired?"

Considering that none of these people are working for him...wouldn't it be more fitting to say "You're NOT hired?"
 
2004-03-04 10:23:03 PM
Buddy of mine is interviewing with Trump for some position...long time ago...says the hair is literally about a foot and half long in the back. Apparently, he got worked up during the interview, and the hair starts flying. He's bald...and this long strand of heavily sprayed hair is flailing all around as Trump is waving his hands and yelling.

Scary stuff. My friend turned down the offer...well, I should say he didn't go back for the final interview. Would you? Christ...you could choke on that thing in a heavy wind.

You biatch about things that aren't worth biatching about. Class to a cannibal is wiping your ass before you eat a boobie.
 
2004-03-04 10:24:07 PM
Omorosa, you're fired.

/hooray!
 
2004-03-04 10:24:42 PM
Class to a cannibal is wiping your ass before you eat a boobie.

I have no idea what that means, and I don't want to defend it.
 
2004-03-04 10:24:44 PM
the show is good. the real estate chick is way hot. it seems to be a pretty accurate representation of the way corporations work in the real world. make money, kiss ass and move on up.
 
2004-03-04 10:25:31 PM
LoveLola, apparently. They say that after the credits roll. I haven't actually watched any of them, though. I just have tomorrow off, so I thought I might check it out.

Great Enemy of Mister Hand, you forgot one thing about Omarosa: "biatch biatch biatch...you said the word 'black' so YOU'RE A RACIST! COMPLAIN! OH MY WIDDLE HEAD! EXCUSES!"
 
2004-03-04 10:25:33 PM
Rye, I'm not biatching. I'm pointing out that the word "classy" is something you see on some fat woman's sweatshirt as she walks down the boardwalk in Atlantic City.

A pink sweatshirt. "Classy Lady"
PUHLEEZE!!!!!!

That's not biatching...it's called sarcasm.

Watching TV constantly isn't any worse than blindly following the elitist view that "TV sucks, I'm too intelligent to listen to its mindless canned garble."

I don't watch TV. Why? I prefer my mindless entertainment to be interactive.

I'm not above it's mindless canned garble, I'm just spoiled on video games. (Grins)

Omorosa summed up by two lines said earlier in the season:

Some white chick: "Thats like the pot calling the kettle black."
Omorosa: "What is with this racism coming from you?"
 
2004-03-04 10:26:25 PM
crabapple;

Considering that none of these people are working for him...wouldn't it be more fitting to say "You're NOT hired?"



I think under union regulations these people are considered actors and are at least paid union scale as long as they're on the show.

 
2004-03-04 10:27:36 PM
Mr Stench, wasn't it that
"that's the pot calling the kettle black"

"why are you making a racist comment?"

Who knew Omorosa was so nubianrdly with her knowledge of colloquialisms?
 
2004-03-04 10:28:47 PM
and everyone knows pot is green anyway
 
2004-03-04 10:28:59 PM
you can't say ni**ardly on FARK without having it altered? LOL...the English language is really going down the drain.
 
2004-03-04 10:29:44 PM
Ya know, we don't see enough about this and the other crapality stuff already, even on EVERY friggin news show. Let's make every Fark link a TV promo spot.
 
2004-03-04 10:30:29 PM
What the hell does that mean, anyway, "Pot calling the kettle black"?

I know it has nothing to do with racism--and Omarosa's a stupid biatch--but what does the phrase mean?
 
2004-03-04 10:30:48 PM
Omorosa = everything that's wrong with America. I think it was a huge statement to fire her ass tonight.

Can't wait until she sues Trump for harassment.
 
2004-03-04 10:31:36 PM
nubianrdly gets changed into something?! I didn't even know "Ni**ardly" was a word...damn...its sounds kind of funny...
 
2004-03-04 10:31:38 PM
Great Enemy,
at the time when that phrase came into being, pots and kettles were made of cast iron and they were both black. As a result, it means alot of things:
A liar calling another person a liar.
A racist calling another person a racist.
ETC.
 
2004-03-04 10:32:11 PM
How about, "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones".

That one is a LOT simpler.
 
2004-03-04 10:32:36 PM
Rye, I'm not biatching. I'm pointing out that the word "classy" is something you see on some fat woman's sweatshirt as she walks down the boardwalk in Atlantic City.

Goddamnit, I agree with that. While I think that the fat women have a valid station in our modern society and should be allowed to live, I do believe that they are not classy, and should not pretend to have class. My belief is backed-up by Chauvanist Bastards 12:19.
 
2004-03-04 10:33:09 PM
Ni**ardly means "being cheap with", more or less. Holding back, not giving it your all.
It has nothing to do with race, and in fact predates the slur that so many idiots today think it refers to.
 
2004-03-04 10:33:23 PM
Originally, pots were black, kettles were black. It's calling someone something you yourself are. Like a Lord of the Rings fan calling a Star Trek fan a geek
 
2004-03-04 10:33:59 PM
Rye, you're far too serious. You win.
 
2004-03-04 10:35:06 PM
nubianrdly... I don't see how that's so hard.
 
2004-03-04 10:37:16 PM
Rye, you're far too serious. You win.

Far too drunk, actually. I think you win.
 
2004-03-04 10:37:48 PM
I kinda think nubianrdly is more racist than the original word. I mean, it suggests that Nubians are cheap bastards. Just goes to show how being PC can backfire with hilarious consequences
 
2004-03-04 10:39:06 PM
That's a very good point, Suetekh. I had not thought of that before.
 
2004-03-04 10:41:40 PM
DRUNK? Oh Rye, you truly win...I'm on this thread this much and I haven't had ANYTHING to drink.
I bow before you, you CLASSY guy.

Oh, and good point, Suetekh. And I like the play on words with your name.

Actually, I wasn't trying to be classy so much as friendly. However, you've farked that right up.
 
2004-03-04 10:47:25 PM
Rye, Rye, Rye,...SARCASM. What's a little sarcasm amongst Farkers? Surely the world isn't becoming that serious, is it? Maybe I've just aged about 50 years in the last 5....
