I haven’t watched a single episode of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”, and I’m okay with that. I’m fully aware that if I don’t watch the episode I’ll never learn what it takes to be really successful in business or how to have an awesome combover, but it’s a risk I’m just willing to take.
Of course I don’t have to watch the show to know that Dennis Rodman was recently fired by Donald Trump. Personally, it’s a shock to find out that someone as stable as The Worm doesn’t have what it takes to impress Trump, but hey, it’s not the first bad decision the man has made. Still, even though it was probably pretty disappointing for Rodman to get the axe, his wife and other close friends were thrilled. Now that he’s off the show, they could finally stage that intervention to get Dennis to go to rehab. Too bad he’s refused to go because it might interfere with his chance to attend the reunion show taping.
From the NEW YORK POST:
FORMER NBA star Dennis Rodman is hitting a rough patch again. Friends of the wacky athlete, who was recently kicked off “Celebrity Apprentice,” tried to stage an intervention for him last week. We’re told his wife, Michelle Moyer, gathered his friends, including Lakers coach Phil Jackson, to “get Dennis to go to rehab.” But our source said, “He wouldn’t go because he doesn’t want to miss the taping of the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ reunion.” A rep for Rodman said, “Yes, they tried an intervention but, unfortunately, Dennis refused to go. We all know how amazing he is when sober, and we hope he gets there soon.”
Actually, no, we don’t know how amazing Rodman is when he’s sober. The only time we ever hear anything about him is when he does something that’s no doubt the result of him being the total opposite of sober.
It’s hard to blame Rodman for his decision when you really think about it, though. I mean, you can check into rehab whenever the hell you feel like it, but how many times are you going to get a chance to sit on stage with icons like Andrew Dice Clay, Joan Rivers, Tom Green, and that chick from “Deal or No Deal” at the same time? Just once, that’s how many.
If you miss it and try to do it later, you’ll only be heartbroken to find out that Dice is over here now, and Green has placed his bum somewhere completely different.
