Tia Carrere Fired on Celebrity Apprentice

Following a task that didn't go as planned, Tia Carrere ended up being the latest casualty of Donald Trump's unforgiving boardroom cuts on Celebrity Apprentice.

On Sunday's episode, both teams were challenged to create a viral video for an O-Cedar mop. Obviously. The men, led by Lou Ferrigno, took a comical route.

The women, however, went with a double entendre "What's your number?" campaign.

While not overtly sexual, each woman, under the direction of Lisa Lampanelli and guidance of project manager Carrere, revealed how many mops they'd owned in their lives.

The men's idea mopped the floor with them and raised $50,000 for charity, leaving the ladies - Carrere, Lampanelli and Aubrey O'Day - fighting for survival.

When push came to shove, Carrere stepped up ... and fell on her own sword.

"Unfortunately I know as project manager, my head is on the chopping block," she told Trump, believing that someone else would go down with her.

"[But] if I throw myself on the knife, as it were, take one for the team… because I was the clearing house for info, I was the final say, I approved everything and I was the task leader - if I do that, will you fire another person on the team as well?" she asked.

"No," Trump said.

"OK, then I have to take responsibility," she said.

"Then Tia, you're fired," Trump said. "Thank you very much. Go ahead. Get out."

And so it went. Are you sad to see her go? Was it the right decision?
