La Toya Jackson: You're fired!

Celebrity Apprentice lost another contestant as Donald Trump sent La Toya Jackson home after her group failed their task, led by Star Jones.

La Toya Jackson was fired from Celebrity Apprentice after her group failed to impress with their task of creating a four-page ad for the Trump Hotel Collection.

La Toya Jackson: You're fired!

Star Jones led the women's group, however their brochure came across as "cluttered" and "cheesy" while the men's "Live the Life" concept, led by John Rich, won the challenge.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and Jackson argued throughout the task before making up before the end of the show – however that didn't stop Leakes and Jones from throwing Jackson under the bus in the boardroom.

"La Toya, you're fired," Donald Trump said in the boardroom. "I've gained great respect for you."

Jackson revealed she, along with many others, has a hard time tolerating Star Jones. "I think everybody has a hard time with Star. I really do. OK, I don't want to say anything really bad. OK, she's mean… because I always say, if I had lost that much weight I would have been so happy and pleased with myself. It's something inside that's hurting her to react that way to everyone… just put a smile on your face sometimes!"

Remaining contestants on Celebrity Apprentice include Star Jones, NeNe Leakes, Hope Dworaczyk, John Rich, Lil Jon, Marlee Matlin and Meat Loaf.
