Broadcasting live from New York City's Museum of Natural History last night, Donald Trump announced the newest winner of Celebrity Apprentice.

That man is Arsenio Hall!

Clay Aiken and Arsenio faced off in one final challenge on Sunday, with the help of former Celebrity Apprentice competitors. They were given the task of putting together a variety show and throwing a party to benefit their respective charities.

The 56-year-old comedian was elated to win, putting his head down on the table then his hand to the sky. Clay hugged his competitor and friend.

Both men, and their charities, were the real winners last night, however.

Arsenio's team raised $167,000 for the Magic Johnson Foundation, and Clay's team pulled in a whopping $301,500 for the National Inclusion Project.

Arsenio's charity was also awarded an additional $250,000 from Trump.

"I've never been so torn," Trump said, announcing the winner. "This is a very, very tough decision. You're both amazing people. There is no loser tonight."

Are you glad Arsenio Hall won Celebrity Apprentice? Or did Clay or third-place finisher Aubrey O'Day deserve it? Sound off in the comments below.

Aubrey O'Day may not be a slut, but she is out of a job.

The outspoken ... whatever she is gave it her best all season long, but she was fired Sunday on Celebrity Apprentice, leaving Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall as the last men standing and vying for the top spot next week.

Did Donald Trump make the right call axing Aubrey?

The boss man called the singer "transparent," sending her packing and leaving Arsenio and Clay to battle it out, with former teammates back in the fold.

Clay got some help from Penn Jillette, Dee Snyder, Debbie Gibson and Aubrey O'Day.

Arsenio, picked Paul Teutul Sr., Teresa Giudice, Lisa Lampanelli and Adam Carolla.

Team Clay and Team Arsenio were then told to direct, produce and star in a variety show to raise money for their charities, sell tickets and create a PSA.

Teresa Giudice and Lisa Lampanelli may have been fired on Celebrity Apprentice this past Sunday, but it's a shot Arsenio Hall fired as Aubrey O'Day that still has viewers buzzing.

The talk show host referred to the singer as a "slut." Oh, yes. He did.

"It was a really strong attack out of nowhere, kind of surprising. It also had nothing to do with the competition," she told Celebuzz of the insult.

Only five "star" contestants remained on Celebrity Apprentice going into Sunday night, so every flip of the hair was critical to stay in the competition.

So to speak. The contestants were tasked with a hair-raising project.

Lisa Lampanelli proclaimed herself project manager for Team Forte, while The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Guidice led Team Unanimous.

The teams were tasked with creating a four-page print ad for the CHI Touch Digital Touchscreen hair dryer, and pitching it to Farouk Systems and Elle.

Lisa and Clay Aiken decided to capture the Elle girl by featuring women whose outward appearances don't always reflect who they really are. Sweet.

When the models arrived for Team Unanimous' shoot, meanwhile, Aubrey O'Day decided she should replace a professional model. She worked it hard.

It didn't work. Lisa's team won the task and $100,000 for charity, and Teresa Giudice got the chop for the losing team ... oh, but there was more to come!

The remaining contestants had to interview with former stars John Rich and Marlee Matlin, and Lisa's torment of Dayana Mendoza caught up with her.

Although she's a funny lady, she did not win over the interviewers and her humor was too much for the competition. Yes, Lisa was finally sent home.

Who are you more happy to see go this week? Lisa or Teresa?

Dayana Mendoza's luck finally ran out this week on Celebrity Apprentice.

A current six-time boardroom veteran and one-time target of Lisa Lampanelli racial slurs, Dayana took charge as Team Forte's project manager this week.

Arsenio Hall stepped forward and led Team Unanimous to victory.

Dayana was in trouble from the start, as Clay Aiken took over the creative process and Lisa was just ... being Lisa. She threw a tantrum and stormed out.

On the plus side, Clay and Lisa bonded over their collective frustrations with Dayana.

Arsenio and Aubrey O'Day exchanged many evil looks, meanwhile, but Aubs' "Hollaback Girl" cheerleader theme for the song won out ... and won the task.

O'Day dominated the spotlight and discounted her teammates in the process, but when you win, the charity getting the prize money won't be complaining.

In the boardroom, Lisa and Clay threw Dayana under the bus, and after so many close shaves this spring, The Donald sort of reluctantly sent her packing.

Were you surprised to see Dayana go? Did she deserve it?

Aubrey O'Day stole the show and Penn Jillette got the chop on Celebrity Apprentice last night, but at least various charities were the big winners all around.

This week, the teams had to design an in-store display for The Donald's new fragrance, named (obvi) "Success by Trump." Yes. The Donald has a fragrance.

Clay Aiken was project manager for Team Forte, and Aubrey for Team Unanimous.

Aubrey and Arsenio Hall used the start of this task as a chance to bond. O'Day hopped on Arsenio to take pictures of New York's skyline for their display.

The mood shifted when Aubrey sent her team on mundane tasks, leaving her with total control, then called on Eric Trump to be a part of Unanimous' display.

In playing a young Donald Trump, Eric seemed flattered to have his modeling debut (hey, better than those hunting photos) but he questioned Aubrey's motives.

She came through, though. Team Unanimous won the task, earning Aubrey a total of $50,000 for GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

Clay brought Penn and Dayana Mendoza back to the boardroom, where Penn's slogan - "you earned it" - earned him a ticket on the next flight home.

Did Donald make the right decision? Can Aubrey be stopped?

The eight remaining contestants on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice were assigned to build two original puppet characters for Jim Henson's Creature Shop last night.

The celebs had to perform with their creations at Henson's "Stuffed and Unstrung" live improv puppet show for adults ... but it was anything but kid-friendly.

At least behind the scenes. Paul Teutul, Sr. volunteered as project manager for Team Unanimous and Lisa Lampanelli stepped forward for Team Forte.

Meanwhile, the latest episode of drama between Lisa Lampanelli and Dayana Mendoza came when Lisa banned Miss Universe 2008 from the spotlight.

Dayana has developed a thicker skin and started to call out Lisa's mean, whiny behavior, but last night, she just couldn't take it after Lisa lashed out.

Clay Aiken suggested that Lisa is constantly intimidated by Dayana's beauty. Probably more or less true ... but in any case, they somehow won the task!

Paul decided to take Aubrey O'Day and Teresa Giuidice to the boardroom, but the girls put up a fight and ultimately, he was no match and got tossed.

Good decision? Bad call? Do you even know who Paul is? Discuss.

Celebrity Apprentice star and beauty queen Dayana Mendoza is firing back at co-star Lisa Lampanelli for a racial insult she allegedly used during a radio interview.

It all went down last month when Lampanelli appeared on Sirius XM, saying:

"I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a sp*c! She’s going to do it f**king soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”

Lampanelli is no stranger to using that slur in particular. Here's a portion of a routine she did a few years back in which she says that and much worse:

Dayana tells the Huffington Post, "I understand that it's Lisa's job to make fun of people for a living. If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets, no problem."

"I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture."

Donald Trump may need to add "therapist" to his resume underneath "blowhard," "fake presidential candidate" and "real estate mogul" after this Celebrity Apprentice.

Aubrey O'Day had just gone MIA after clashing with Arsenio Hall, Lisa Lampanelli had a massive meltdown (again) and a whole lot of additional drama played out.

In the end, Lou Ferrigno got the chop. Why?

Arsenio and Lisa yelled about Aubrey and her ego. Then when Lou Ferrigno and Dayana Mendoza walked in the victory room, Lisa insulted them to their faces.

Things didn't improve much during the task, which required the teams to write, produce and direct a 60-second commercial for Entertainment (dot) com.

Dayana Mendoza instantly jumped to claim the role of project manager for Team Unanimous, while Teresa Guidice boldly took the #1 spot for Team Forte.

Team Forte went for a more risque storyline, while Team Unanimous played it safe, and got beat, leaving Lou Ferrigno to play Penn's usual role of scapegoat.

Miss Universe brought Lou and Lisa with her to the chopping block, where the Donald opined that Lou didn't give his all AND threw his team under the bus.

Strike two and three right there. Adios, Lou!
