"I did not live long and prosper there," said George Takei this morning on Today of his short-lived stint on Celebrity Apprentice.
Even though he seemed to be respected by almost everybody, the Star Trek star was fired by Donald Trump on Sunday night's episode. Cheryl Tiegs and Victoria Gotti have exited so far.
Takei, 74, was the oldest competitor this season. He was project manager Sunday night overseeing a task of designing a window at Lord & Taylor to showcase Ivanka Trump's clothing line. His all-male team lost to the women's team, and Takei took the fall. "President Truman said the buck stops here. I have to be the man occupying the desk where that buck stops," he said this morning.
Takei added that Clay Aiken, the youngest member of the team who described Takei as "slower" during the task, was "a little catty."
And Takei told Zap2it today that Aiken "is determined to win, and he will do it with little snide snipes."
