Stacie J. gets fired for being crazy.

Stacie J. gets fired for being crazy.
Stacie J. was fired on The Apprentice 2 last night after her team diagnosed her as certifiably insane. Citing the Magic 8 Ball incident from the first task, her teammates all said they were freaked out by her unstable behavior. Trump let her go despite the fact that the team lost because they were over budget, which project manager Elizabeth blamed on Maria. Speaking of surprise firings, Carolyn Kepcher tells that she didn’t expect Bradford’s firing. “I had actually thought Ivana. I thought she was very indecisive. She had a lot of excuses. She was very exhausting,” she says. Carolyn, who’s also promoting her new book Carolyn 101: Business Lessons from The Apprentice’s Straight Shooter, adds that the boardrooms this season lasted between three and five hours. “Was I frustrated? Yes. I was absolutely frustrated at some of the answers that we were receiving, some of the excuses we were getting, the indecisiveness.”
