Lisa Lampanelli is not happy with NBC
(If you watch the Comedy Central Roasts you’ll know that joke is perfectly acceptable, by the way.)
Lisa Lampanelli says NBC owes her a MASSIVE apology after inviting her to a NY Knicks game then forcing her to sit in the back while her two The Celebrity Apprentice co-stars enjoyed seats up front.
Yesterday it was announced that Lampanelli, a raunchy comedienne, would be on the upcoming season of The Celebrity Apprentice along with Real Housewives star (I use that term oh-so loosely) Teresa Giudice and Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza. The ladies worked a terribly long day for the show yesterday and were looking forward to attending the NY Knicks game after NBC offered them tickets. But when they arrived, it seemed Teresa and Dayana’s tickets were near the front and Lisa’s were way in the back. Lisa says she was “humiliated” in front of thousands because of it. You know, for a woman who is often the punchline of bukkake jokes you’d think it would take a lot more to humiliate her. Heh.
Joking aside (sorta) I get where she is coming from. I’d be pissed too if I went somewhere on someone’s dime and my friends and I were split up and I got the shaft seat. Who wouldn’t? Most times, in real life, friends come to your aid in that sort of situation. You don’t just leave your one friend with the short straw to sit by themselves for an entire game. You just don’t. I mean we all know that you sell your good tickets, take the money and get wasted with your girlfriend in the cheap seats. DUH. But this rule clearly does not apply for celebrities of any star level…the friend who gets the crap seats is just plain sh*t outta luck, because ‘Look, we’re on TV.’
TMZ spoke with Lisa Lampanelli who went off about her experience … is she drunk?
