Celebrity Apprentice: It’s No Project Runway!

Thursday's two-hour Celebrity Apprentice -- riding high after NBC renewed it for a second season -- was an all-out espionage fest. Sopranos star Vinnie Pastore infiltrated the women's team and ended up the proverbial rat, resigning after a rivalry with Piers Morgan turned ugly.

Speaking of... The shoe company Crocs -- which many fashionistas have dismissed as plastic clogs -- was front and center on Thursday's episodes. Celebs competed to design a charity ad campaign, SolesUnited, for the fast-growing enterprise. "Crocs, I'm sure you all have heard of because they're hot as a pistol," fashion guru Donald Trump said. The goal, admirably, was to donate used shoes to impoverished communities in Africa.

But perhaps the show's worst fashion offender is Omarosa. Lady O rocked a beret and gray, oversized sweater with black hose Thursday, harkening grown-up tones of '80s Madonna or Breakfast Club's Ally Sheedy. It's actually the second time Omarosa has worn a beret, which she paired on an earlier episode with an ultra-mini skirt. Such risk!

"I don't go by the trends," Omarosa told us at last weekend's Hugo Boss/Glamour Glam Style suite in L.A., of her fashion sense. "I choose things that make me feel pretty."

Well, it could be back to the drawing board. -- Nicholas White
