THE APPRENTICE’s Rebecca adds details to the curious last-minute disappearing act from Joe Piscopo during the final episode:
My immediate reaction was, “If Joe Piscopo is dropping out at the last minute, let’s have a talk with his union and we’ll make it all work out,” but I was told, “No, you can’t make a call to the union [and] you can’t talk to Joe anymore.” I don’t know if they showed this, but Joe Piscopo came to the event at the end; maybe — and this is my own personal inference — that is a sign that some external factor, whether it was a union, NBC, [Apprentice executive producer] Mark Burnett or whatever, forced him to not present, but somewhere inside of himself he couldn’t handle the idea of not supporting a good cause. He did the right thing by showing up, and I commend him for doing that.
And is it wrong of me to chuckle and shudder everytime Larry King uses the word “blogger?”
