Actress Lisa Rinna made it to the final four of this season's All Star Celebrity Apprentice, but her ride ended on Sunday night when Donald Trump kicked her and Lil' Jon to the curb. That experience is becoming all too familiar for Rinna, as she was the second person let go during season 11 (this is the show's 13th season), lasting longer than only David Cassidy.
Rinna is taking the news in stride, though, as she feels like she earned herself some "redemption" this season.
"I didn't find it sad or hard at all because I didn't even expect to make the final four. Really on paper, I should be in the final two. If you look at it, I was the second-highest money raiser with $505,000. I won both challenges as project manager. My team won seven out of 10 tasks, and I was never brought back into the boardroom," she said.
Needless to say, she enjoyed this go round much more than her first visit with The Donald.
"There is no comparison. I got redemption for myself in the sense that the first season I really didn't get to play at all. This season I got to come and play and win. I really won in so many ways and it changed me as a person. I learned so much about myself. … I think overall, it was a teachable moment -- it was really great for my girls [aged 11 and 14, with husband Harry Hamlin] to see me do something that I failed at and I went back in and was able to do it and succeed. It was a really great thing for them to see," she said.
She also added that she does not think she would partake in a third season, if asked.
