• Watch Geraldo Rivera Throw a Tantrum on “Celebrity Apprentice”

    Are Geraldo Rivera’s days on “Celebrity Apprentice” numbered already? Or will The Mustache live to fight another day?

    Monday evening was the second installment in the two-night season premiere of Donald Trump’s popular reality show competition, but listening to the groans of Rivera’s teammates, you’d think they’d already been working with the guy for a month.

    It is the most egotistical manner in which I’ve seen anybody behave on a set, and I’ve been doing this for 30 years,” said actor Lorenzo Lamas regarding Geraldo’s attitude.

    During the episode, Geraldo threw a temper tantrum, accusing his own teammates of trying to sabotage him by recording an advertisement using the voice of Mike Rowe, rather than Geraldo himself.

    You know, I’m not a bad voice-over either if you wanted to use that,” Rivera insisted. “My voice is as recognizable and would have been more effective in the spot.”

    After being told to calm down by singer Kevin Jonas, Geraldo retorted, “Don’t give me that bullshit, man. It’s very annoying. And don’t grandstand with me, dude. I’ve been around the block too long.”

    In the end, Donald Trump decided to fire Jonas, who had been the project manager on this particular failed task. But he warned Rivera that he’s on thin ice.

    In a promo for next week’s “Celebrity Apprentice” installment, Geraldo can be seen parading around without his shirt on…because of course. We can’t wait.
