Arsenio Hall Has Epic Meltdown On Celebrity Apprentice



On last night’s 3 HOUR Celebrity Apprentice, former talk-show host Arsenio Hall went on a verbally abusive tirade against Aubrey O’Day that was actually pretty uncomfortable to watch. Even more troubling is that Donald Trump Jr. tweeted that the fight was even worse than what we saw, with producers editing it down for television.

I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t watched it yet (I imagine most people DVR’d it to avoid the endless commercials that come with a 3-hour show), but I will tell you that Hall’s behavior made me lost any respect I had for the guy. While O’Day is definitely a handful, she’s arguably one of the strongest players in this game, and I’ll be shocked if I don’t see her and Lisa Lampanelli face off as the final two.

What surprised me is the amount of support Arsenio received on Twitter, making me question what’s wrong with society today. Since when is misogyny acceptable practice, especially in front of millions of viewers? What kind of an example is that setting for people?

Thankfully, I’m not alone in my feelings about Hall. Here are a few quotes I came across from other disgruntled viewers:

Arsenio showed his true colors tonight–which were UGLY and misogynistic. He will see how manipulative he was when he went back to the apartment and was trying to make everyone as hateful as he was. He should be ashamed of himself when he sees this. Aubrey did overpower and manipulate—BUT he LET her, because he wanted a scapegoat in case he lost. She DID write everyone else’s quote except his (and even his she helped with) but he tried to take all credit away from her. As a father of a daughter, if I saw him being as hateful, spiteful and mean to her as he was to her, he would have to walk into another room with me to have quite a “discussion” about his unacceptable, nasty and mean behavior. I used to be a fan, but I would not walk across a 3 foot room or accept a free ticket to see him ever after this. He is a nasty piece of work! I am glad he never had a daughter, because he obviously does not like or respect women.

I liked Ars-hall until tonight. He showed tonight who he really is. A disgusting, disrespectful JERK. He was not only disrespectful to a woman, but to everyone present. He could have gotten all that across without taking the lowest road possible. What a fine spokesman for Walgreen’s ?? I know Aubrey has a lot of faults, but for him to act like that was inexcusable. Then after the X rated harangue, he cries like a little girl. To me now, he is trash. Go back under your rock where you belong, Hall. I liked you until I found out who you really were.

Arsenio got butt hurt because Aubrey called him a has-been. As if it’s untrue. Still, he should’ve called her out on being a never-was. Crazy bitch is still hot though (and probably a total freak in bed).

The disrespect you showed toward Aubrey…. A WOMAN! Guess you do not have a mother or sister. You had to throw in a quote of google her name and see a naked picture, big gut. Untrue.

Arsenio – I hope you see this! You are a disgusting. To talk to a women and act the way you did towards a woman is shameful. And to continue to attack someone when they are not around is even more disgusting. You are no asset to any of the teams you’ve been a part of. Your show ended b/c you didn’t have the talent to sustain it and you certainly don’t have the talent to beat out these women. I hope you are ashamed of your behavior and QUIT shaking your arm its annoying.

What do you think? Was Arsenio in the wrong?

    Now that my Showtime Series have ended this season, I can start following Celebrity Apprentice more. 3 hours though for this episode!?; I have some catching up to do.

    Without commercials, it’s only about 2 hours long. But they crammed two episodes into this 3-hour block, so it’s really not that bad.

    I completely agree that Arsenio was more than out of line! There is a fine line between putting someone in their place and outright verbal abuse! He is a 56 year old man for God’s sake! Disgusting! The fact that Donald said it was even worse than was aired is a bad mark on the show and Donald as well! How could he let it get bad! This was not Lou Ferrigno he was going at; nor was it two girls going at each others throats — it was a 56 year old man going at a “twenty-something” female!

    Okay… if anyone saw the episode, you could see that Aubrey was not being a team player. I hate to say it, but I think this is a “how dare he talk to this sweet little girl” thing. And also maybe because of his color people are so appauled. I am wondering how people can accuse him of trying to get people on his side as if they were not already there? Everyone said that she should be fired if they lost. But it is crazy. Her crying when she doesn’t get her way is so childish. I didn’t agree with her not winning the task last week, her crying, and Donald giving 10K of his money to help her out. He didn’t do that to Lou this week.

    Verbal abuse. I think not. She is not a little kid. She is a 28 year old woman that has a freaking playboy spread. She’ll be alright.

      Everyone said she should be fired if they lost, but you know Aubrey would have brought the heat if she came back to the boardroom..

      There’s no question that she could have proved her worth over Theresa and Debbie, regardless of how much she earned for the team.

      There’s so much dead weight on these teams (Lou, Dayna, Theresa, Paul), it’s easy to convince Trump that she deserves to stay over them.

      The only reason Lou and Dayna are still in the game is because Trump has a hard-on for them.

    The way this story is framed (it’s perspective) is so predictable for a lot of us who live among this kind of loaded deck, double standard “mind your place” type of quality of life that America has taught, promoted & message monopolized since it’s conception. Any sane reasonable person that has been keeping up with the “producer’s edited” version of this show knows all of the vile and disgusting things that this O’day character has said about everyone else on this show… with the exception of an equally disgusting and hateful friend of hers, whose name I purposefully will not try to remember or recall; but she poses as a comedian. Now that not just someone but THIS particular someone decides that He will not take her evil ways… Look at what position is choose by, not only the writer of this story but a lot of the commenters on THIS blog. i indeed say THIS blog because in a lot of other areas where the facts of this epidsode are revealed and express, there is hardly any room for such a foreign, out-of left field position. What exactly constitutes this thing called a “Meltdown”? the fact that Arsenio was upset? Or is it, as it often, often, often is, that the line between what’s blatantly right or wrong can ALWAYS be shifted depending on Who someone like Arsenio is upset with? I lot of commenters in This land, including the writer of this article, love to hate who they love to hate. It’s deep within, always looking for a way to ooze out! Congratulations!!! You’ll always have a home here!
