Donald Trump fires both Maria and Wes.

Donald Trump fires both Maria and Wes.
Project manager Wes and abject failure Maria both got fired by Donald Trump last night during yet another surprising The Apprentice 2 boardroom. During a task that involved creating an in-store catalog for Levi’s jeans, Wes failed to control Maria, and Maria failed to control Maria. Actually, as TV Gasm writes, Maria was a “Category F-5 tornado” who attempted to take over the task and “engaged in an apparently 30 minute spat … with Sandy.” Perhaps more shocking than the firing was Ivana’s contribution: She suggested producing a “fit wheel” to show the various types of jeans, and it was actually a smart idea that worked well.
