Donald's new 'Celebrity Apprentice' is...

Posted: 07:49 AM ET

BY Cristina Kinon and Bill Hutchinson/New York Daily News

Tart-tongued comedian Joan Rivers was crowned Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" winner Sunday night, edging out poker-playing diva Annie Duke.

In the season finale of the hit NBC reality show, the 75-year-old Brooklyn-born Rivers showed heart, tears and "disgust" for Duke.

"You are a two-faced person," Rivers told Duke, 43, in a live face-to-face smackdown in Trump's boardroom, which was transported to the American Museum of Natural History on the upper West Side to cap the show's eighth season.

Duke fired back that Rivers would be fired from most Fortune 500 companies. She was especially miffed that the funny lady called her "worse than Hitler" and suggested her friends were in the mafia.

Difference in bluffing and the real thing! You got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em!

BOYCOTT LARRY KING AND HIS SPONSORS. THEY PAY FOR THE DEFENSE OF CHILD MURDERERS.

JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE ANTHONY.

Why does CNN feel compelled to provide yet again a platform for the Anthony’s? If they are so intent on ensuring their daughter gets a fair trial for murdering their grand-daughter then perhaps you could accommodate that by not interviewing them until after the trial. How about focusing on families that really do have missing children- Adji Desir, Haleigh Cummings, Madeleine McCann. Please provide a platform for these families rather then flying the Anthony’s out to CA, hotel and crab puffs all being paid by CNN.

Shame on CNN and Larry King for giving the Anthony's another platform. Stop watching CNN. I am !

LISTEN UP LARRY
Your viewers do not want the Anthony circus on your show Larry. I have read hundreds of comments to you about this Larry. I have yet to read just one that is in support of your decision to have abominable, lying people on your show.

Larry, this is just another stop on what the Anthonys national "Casey is Innocent" media tour. Give them no more air time, no more air time, no more air time. I will not be watching if you do not cancel. Thanks.

I will never watch LKL again if the Anthony's are given air time.
Stop Stop Stop using Cayllee
She was a sweet innocent little girl that needs justice for her death.
Let her voice be the voice you hear not the Anthony's they lie and can't here her voice because of their behavior

Larry.......This is what's wrong with our "culture"...........Today, one of our soldiers opened fire in a military base just outside of Baghdad killing five soldiers!! In a war that was "sold" to the American people on false intelligence strongarmed by Dick Cheney and the Bush administration.

Hey, but Joan Rivers won "Celebrity Apprentice", who cares.........Who won "American Idol??

I WANT TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO YOU DONALD TRUMP. AND TO YOUR FRIEND JOAN RIVERS.

WHAT I LEARNED LAST NIGHT WATCHING THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE APPRENTICE WAS THAT A DEATH HAD OCCURRED. AT MY HOUSE. IT IS THE DEATH OF THE APPRENTICE . WHILE I HAVE NOT ENJOYED A LOT IT I THOUGHT THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS A PERSON WITH CHARACTER. I LEARNED LAST NIGHT YOU ARE NOT THAT MAN. AND THE MESSAGE THAT WAS SEND TO THE YOUTH IN AMERICA IS THAT IT IS OK TO BERATE PEOPLE, AS JOAN RIVERS AND HER DAUGHTER MELISSA DID. .

THE INJUSTICE THAT WAS DONE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WAS SHOWN BY YOU MR.
TRUMP BY ALLOWING THIS FRIEND TO WIN FOR HER CHARITY WHEN SHE HAD DEMEANED AND INSULTED ANNIE TIME AND TIME AGAIN. IF I WERE TO SAY ANY OF THAT TO ANYONE , ANY WHERE . AT ANY TIME, I AM SURE THAT CIVIL CHARGES WOULD BE MADE. AND YOU WOULD NOT EVEN LISTEN TO ANNIE AS SHE TRIED TO TELL YOU WHAT HAD HAPPENED. ALSO THE VIEWERS KNEW WHO THE WINNER REALLY WAS.

MR. TRUMP, I AM ASHAMED OF YOU. THIS PROGRAM WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED IN MY HOUSE AGAIN. YOU OWE ALL OF US OUT HERE AN APOLOGY AND IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. YOU MAY BE RICH AND LIVE IN THE PENT HOUSE BUT YOU REALLY A NOW I THINK RATHER A LOW LIFE AND YOU MAY NOT HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT BUT IF YOUR FRIENDS ARE LIKE JOAN YOU ARE TO BE PITIED.

I AM SURE THIS WILL NOT REACH YOU BUT MAYBE YOUR SECRATARIES WILL MAKE A COPY OF IT AND SEND IT TO JOAN SINCE I DO NOT HAVE HER ADDRESS.
