It’s Melania Trump!: Dennis Rodman Fired from ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ after Misspelling Trump’s Wife’s Name

April 08, 2013 09:27 AM by Shayla Perry

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.

In the latest episode of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, the two teams were tasked with creating advertising campaigns for Melania Trump’s skincare line.

Team Power — rapper Lil Jon, Playboy Playmate Brande Roderick, Trace Adkins, and Dennis Rodman — arguably created the better campaign, but it was one small mistake that cost them the challenge.

In the boardroom, Donald Trump showed the signage to both teams, asking if they could spot the problem. Plan B’s Stephen Baldwin noticed the error immediately: Melania Trump’s name was spelled “Milania.”

Rodman quickly tried to pass the blame on to the creative team that was hired to produce the posters and artwork, but his teammate, country singer Trace Adkins admitted to being the one to supervise the layout…and the spelling.

“I am embarrassed for all four of us,” said Adkins. “We are all grown adults and we missed the spelling mistake.”

Still, as Project Manager, it was Rodman who signed off on the final draft, spelling error and all.

“I cannot believe they spelled my name wrong. It is all over the place and none of them even realized,” said a shocked Melania.

When it came time to hand out pink slips, it was between Trace, who made the actual mistake, and Rodman, who signed off on it. Adkins argued that the basketball star did little else to contribute to the project, so in the end, it was Dennis Rodman who Trump fired.

Did the Donald make the right decision in firing Rodman? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    I didn’t care which one got fired. I am just glad Omarosa is finally gone.

    Who is Dennis Rodman anyway? Someone who thinks he is so God Like and can butt into any and everything that is none of his business. He is a disguesting man who is illiterate, ugly, subculture and he needs to go away. Why does the media keep him in the limelight. He makes me want to throwup.

    Well, Mrs. Trump wouldn’t have worked either, given there are a few of them. ;)

    Dennis, I hope you keep your head up high and take this as a learning experience that you don’t put your trust in everyone else as a leader be sure to review anything that you are in charge of even if some get offended.

    Does it really matter, so Dennis can not spell, and Trace cant read. these people have their own careers and have people to handle that kind of stuff for them. So did Donald make the right choice, WHO CARES!

    I like Dennis, I think that this whole thing is going to give Melania even more press for her product. Now people, because of this mistake all know who she is.

    Correct choice to fire Rudeman. How do you like it Mr. Rodman if they spelled your name this way. By the way, the incorrect spelling is on target. Mind your own business and maybe if your not butting into things you have no idea about, take a few night classes to learn something. Did you ever get your degree? If so, what was it? Oh I know B.S in illiterate,rude and I play bball 101 because I can’t spell or say basketball.

    To the media, don’t keep him in the limelight then he thinks he’s smart. Donald what were you thinking even allowing him on your show.
