NEW YORK ( -- Oh, Donald. Oh, Martha. We remember when you were a team, united to promote your reality shows that allowed 20-something wannabes a chance at a dubiously rewarding job for a year and a run of TV appearances that may or may not end up showcasing their worst while grasping for the brass ring. We now know Donald is the better firer, and Martha was just no good at it. So why do we have to keep rehashing this? Enough. Please. Enough.

Ah, happier times.

We know Martha is working to renovate her media company, and her interview with Newsweek was mostly focused on those efforts. But her flame-throwing comment that Trump was supposed to be fired and she was to be the only Apprentice-maker bruised an ego bigger than hers, and hence the wrathful letter. (We could rehash it, but really, do we need to? Does anyone not know by now that Donald says Martha never thanked him? That she was a moron to think he would be fired when he had the No. 1 show? That she needs to take responsibility for her failure? We didn’t think so.)

Martha, obviously good by now at playing the victim, issued a statement saying she couldn’t believe her good friend would say such nasty things about her. (“The letter is so mean-spirited and reckless that I almost can’t believe my long-time friend Donald Trump wrote it.”)


Trump has a new night for his “Apprentice,” launching on Monday, and his marketing partners for the tasks include Wal-mart, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble’s Gillette, Outback Steakhouse, Ameriquest Mortgage Company, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, General Motors Corp.’s Chevrolet, Triarc Co., Arby’s and 7-Eleven. We’re sure those companies are thrilled at The Donald’s behavior. Perhaps not all publicity is good publicity.
