The three-hour instalment of the NBC business competition opened with Mr Trump moving Meat Loaf to Team A.S.A.P. and NeNe to Team Backbone after he decided that NeNe and Star were not going to be able to sort out their problems.
However, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star disappeared following his announcement, leaving Team Backbone in the dark about her whereabouts. In a later phone call with Mr Trump, she admitted to feeling angry that the mogul had "accommodated" Star and suggested she would be better leaving the show and raising money for her charity alone. She also sent a message to Team Backbone expressing a similar sentiment.
Meanwhile, Team Backbone - led by PM La Toya - continued without her, with John Rich securing the services of Jimmy Fallon for their comedy show. The late-night host even composed a song about The Celebrity Apprentice called 'Yer Fired'.
Over on Team A.S.A.P., Star secured a video interview with Tracy Morgan, while Marlee stepped up to do a comedy routine. However, PM Meat Loaf struggled to contain his emotions because he was worried that the money he had secured for his charity would go to La Toya's charity if she won. Eventually, Star called Mr Trump to explain the situation and ask if each team could keep their donations, although he said that that was "not the premise" of the show, adding: "It takes the incentive away from winning."
The first boardroom
Meat Loaf immediately broke down again in the boardroom over possibly losing his charity money, before talk turned to NeNe. "The fact is that she left. She quit. She gave up," said Mr Trump. "To you, NeNe I say, 'You are fired. You're a quitter and Star Jones kicked your ass whether you like it or not'."
John Rich then told Meat Loaf that if his team lost, he would match what Meat Loaf had raised for his charity. This declaration made Meat Loaf break down again. Mr Trump then revealed that Meat Loaf's team raised $102,080, while La Toya raised $82,500, meaning Meat Loaf had won nearly $190,000 for Painted Turtle.
Unfortunately for La Toya, her team's defeat signalled her second dismissal from the competition, despite Mr Trump saying that he had been very impressed with her.
The second task and boardroom
This week's second task saw the teams working with vehicle security company OnStar on a product promotion video that would be judged on creativity and originality, product integration, and brand messaging. John Rich stepped up as PM for Team Backbone, while Marlee took on the role for Team A.S.A.P.
Team A.S.A.P. used Meat Loaf as a police officer called 'Officer Dominic Body' who used a navigation service (fronted by Star) to find a doughnut shop, while Team Backbone used Lil Wayne in their video showcasing OnStar products.
In the boardroom, the teams learned that the executives loved the energy, passion and characters of Team A.S.A.P.'s video, but weren't convinced by the doughnut shop storyline because officers are there to help people and shouldn't be mocked. They also were not sure that Star's character was that informative. Meanwhile, the men showcased the OnStar box well and made the product seem essential, but a woman in their ad wasn't wearing a seatbelt and Lil Jon's acting was OTT.
Team Backbone were named the winners and a war of words broke out between Star and Meat Loaf on A.S.A.P. over a shot that was apparently left out of the final video. Star became angry when Meat Loaf called her "sweetie" and their arguing could even be heard from inside the boardroom, where Mr Trump was debating who to fire.
In the end, it was the final boardroom for Star, who was sent home on the basis that she had been in charge of branding, although she argued that was a different task to placing the branding in the video.
