Dennis Rodman will forever remember how to spell
Milania Melania Trump’s name after the most recent episode of NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice. The former NBA star was given the boot after misspelling the Donald’s wife’s name when promoting her skincare line. How did it all go down? All the details after the jump.
