Tabloid Whore!



Oh wow. I just came across this on PEOPLE's website. Donald Trump has now fired off an official "open letter" to Martha Stewart saying all kinds of crap on why he thinks her version of The Apprentice failed, etc. etc. It's just plain mean. What an egomaniacle, obnoxious man that Trump is. Who cares if Martha was or wasn't really supposed to fire him in the original plan for her to host the show? To write such a nasty letter like this after the woman spent months in jail and was supposed to be his friend is beyond me. He sounds like a 5th grader, but maybe that is to be expected from a man who marries someone old enough to be his daughter. Not very nice Donald, not very nice at all. No doubt, this is Trumps way to try and garner publicity for a show that people have already grown tired of, Martha Stewart version or not. Big stinkin' raspberry to you Donald!

Trump's Letter:
Dear Martha:

It's about time you started taking responsibility for your failed version of The Apprentice. Your performance was terrible in that the show lacked mood, temperament and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it – and your low ratings bore me out. Between your daughter, with her one word statements, your letter writing and, most importantly, your totally unconvincing demeanor, it never had a chance – much as your daytime show is not exactly setting records. Despite this, I did nothing but positively promote you. Your only response to your failed show was that, "I thought that I was supposed to fire Donald Trump!" You knew this was not true – NBC would never fire me when The Apprentice was, for a good period of time, the #1 show on television and my recent finale, where I hired Randal, was the #2 show for the week, easily beating the competing finale of Amazing Race and others. Even Mark Burnett said, "Thank God that didn't happen," when asked about firing Donald Trump. Essentially, you made this firing up just as you made up your sell order of ImClone. The only difference is – that was more obvious. Putting your show on the air was a mistake for everybody – especially NBC.

In any event, my great loyalty to you has gone totally unappreciated.

Donald J. Trump

P.S. Be careful or I will do a syndicated daytime show, perhaps called The Boardroom, and further destroy the meager ratings you already have!

Martha Stewart's response:
The letter is so mean-spirited and reckless that I almost can’t believe my long-time friend Donald Trump wrote it. I am very proud of the work we did with Mark Burnett Productions and Mr. Trump, who was an executive producer, on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. Many young entrepreneurs learned so much from the show and enjoyed it. Many families sat their children down weekly to watch it. We are even more pleased with our excellent daytime show Martha – syndicated by NBC Universal – which has just been nominated for six daytime Emmys (including best show and best host), was touted by The New York Times as one of the best shows on television, and has been embraced by our wonderful audience throughout the country."

Martha showed her class by not stooping to Dumb Donald's (I think I've said that phrase before)level.

I just wish Donald would get thrown in jail and become someone's bitch.

Um, yeah. I can understand why he's mad, and he has a right to write that letter. But he said somethings that definetly were childish and immature. And why an open letter?? Why not just send her one privately, for goodness sakes! It might have been wrong of her to say what she did, but you'd think a grown man in business like him could take a bit of criticism! Insecure much?

No one should ever say anything about Martha. Homegirl did her time in jail (unjustly, I might add) so is more of a man than any of these posers!

Hard to believe Trump got where he got if his ego and temper are so enormous he can't stop himself from verbally assaulting a woman, and a powerful woman at that.

MEAN and entirely unecessary.

here's my opinion of what probably happened:

when mark burnett was wooing martha, he may have proposed to her that she fire trump and replace him for one installment of the apprentice. this is entirely plausible and would probably have been a great idea, if it was executed properly.

mark burnett never mentioned this plan to trump. (duh, Trump.)

mark burnett scored martha for the show and the stuff about her firing trump was pushed off to the side.

donald's show starts losing viewers. donald's desperate for any excuse that doesn't have to do with him sucking and the show being repetitive and boring.

mark burnett denies he ever proposed the trump 'firing'. of course he is denying it. he is saving his own ass. although he is producing martha's daytime show, so that's gotta be awkward.

martha comes out on top in this scenario. donald is a total ass for writing that letter. it's kind of like him suing that guy for writing that he wasn't a billionaire. seriously, donald. do you really think anyone gives a crap about you, what's in your wallet or the fate of your tv show? get OVER yourself. money isn't everything. especially when you are sorely lacking in integrity and humility. let's keep our eye on the ball here.

martha has a legitimate empire that incorporates real content and serves the public. you just have a whole bunch of 'stuff'.

Hey. Hazim here. Who cares bout words? I'd really like Donald and Martha to settle their argument with a wrestling match.
Martha Stewart survived being her cellmate's bitch and poor ratings.
Donald's got hair that looks like an orangutan's armpit.
Obviously, Martha's the sane one.
