Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman – The Review

I’m not normally the type to voluntarily offer up my time to watch sports documentaries, but Winning:the Racing Life Of Paul Newman is one of those rare exceptions. Here’s the catch, it’s really not a sports film, but a look into another, lesser known side of the life of Paul Newman, one of the greatest American actors of all-time, and as it turns out, one of the greatest American men of all-time as well.

When you define what makes the perfect man, the perfect American citizen, or even the perfect human being, what comes to mind? The answer to that question will vary greatly, depending on who you ask, and the truth is, it’s a trick question. There is no perfection when it comes to humanity. However, what I discovered from watching this film, co-directed by Adam Carolla and Nate Adams, is that Paul Newman damn near comes close,

If you’re a racing fan, there’s a great new documentary on the horizon on the amazing driving career of Paul Newman.

Perfectly timed to open over Memorial Day weekend, known for its infamous races the Coca-Cola 600 and Indianapolis 500, the new trailer for Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman looks at the actor who said in a 1973 interview, “If I could be a competitive automobile driver, I’d chuck this in a minute. It’s pretty hard to start something like that when you’re 47.”

This fascinating documentary – from Adam Carolla and co-director Nate Adams – features Paul Newman (archive footage), Robert Redford, Patrick Dempsey, Mario Andretti, Jay Leno, Robert Wagner, Joanne Woodward (archive footage), Arthur Newman, Tom Cruise (archive footage), Michael Andretti, Bob Sharp, Sam Posey, Sebastien Bourdais and many other racers.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Aubrey O'Day's blond again and Dayana Mendoza has no love for Lisa Lampanelli

During the two-hour live finale for "The Celebrity Apprentice" on NBC Sunday (May 20) night, Donald Trump welcomed the previously fired contestants to the stage (minus Cheryl Tiegs and Michael Andretti, though his dad, Mario Andretti, did drive Donald Trump to the live show) -- including Victoria Gotti, George Takei, Tia Carrere, Patricia Velasquez, Lou Ferrigno, Dayana Mendoza, Aubrey O'Day, Lisa Lampanelli, Teresa Giudice, Dee Snider, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, Debbie Gibson and Adam Carolla.

Find out who won "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Here are a few things we learned:

- Lou had surgery for his hearing impairment. "For the first time in my life I can hear without a hearing aid," he tells Donald.

- Dayana has nothing positive to say about Lisa, but Lisa thinks Dayana's crying impersonation of her was hilarious. "I think she's great," Lisa says about Dayana. "I love being made fun of. I dish it out and I can take it.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Aubrey O'Day walks, Debbie Gibson, Dee Snider fired

Sunday's (April 1) epic three-hour episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice" saw two tasks, one team switch, two celebrities fired and one quit. Debbie Gibson was robbed as the celebrity from the first task to hear Donald Trump's famous parting words after Teresa Giudice chose to bring her and Dayana Mendoza to the boardroom, while Twisted Sister's Dee Snider got his possibly undeserved walking papers when losing project manager Lou Ferrigno brought him and Dayana -- once again -- into the boardroom after the second task.

And from the looks of things, Trump is never going to fire Dayana, possibly because the Miss Universe Organization -- she's the 2008 winner -- is a partnership between Trump and NBC.

The most shocking turn of events came after Arsenio Hall's win as project manager for Team Unanimous when the rest of the team went back to the war room, while Aubrey O'Day

'Celebrity Apprentice' Tia Carrere on Aubrey O'Day: 'If you give her enough rope, she's going to hang herself'

Tia Carrere threw herself on the metaphorical sword in Donald Trump's boardroom on Sunday's (March 18) episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice," hearing Trump's famous last words, "You're fired," after a tumultuous back-and-forth between the actress/singer and pop star Aubrey O'Day, who had questioned Carrere's project management skills during the team's viral video task.

O'Day even went so far as to call out Carrere's age in the boardroom. "I'm sorry if at 50-something years old ... if I'm overshadowing her at 27," O'Day said.

In an interview Monday, Carrere, who's actually 45, had this to say about "the little red-haired girl," "If you give her enough rope, she's going to hang herself. I maintain my own personal dignity and integrity. I'm not going to get into that nasty cat fight. It will become apparent in time."

While watching the boardroom scene play out on a monitor with the rest of the winning men's team,

Celebrity Apprentice recap: I'm Going To Mop The Floor With You

Celebrity Apprentice recap: I'm Going To Mop The Floor With You
After last week's shock double firing, when we said goodbye to Adam Carolla and Michael Andretti, which team is going to lose a member this week? Well, Patricia Velásquez is a bit worried about the state of the women's team despite their win - the "backstabbing", "lies" and "disrespect" is all getting a bit much. Lou Ferrigno and Tia Carrere are also hidden in the corner discussing tactics - they both agree that they need to step it up and each be more of a "fighter". So it's not much of a surprise when they both decide to become project managers this week! But what task will the teams be facing? Well, to win a total of $$50,000 for their charity, they must create a viral video to promote the O-Cedar Pro-Mist spray mop - the keys are product integration, entertainment value and brand messaging.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Tia Carrere's number is up

This week's task for "The Celebrity Apprentice" was for the teams to create a viral video for the O-Cedar ProMist Spray Mop, and simply stated, it's impossible to set out to create a viral video. One can create a video, which becomes a viral sensation, but by definition, one cannot make a viral video from the get-go.

So the fact that neither team ended up with a "viral" video -- and instead ended up with essentially traditional TV spots isn't a huge surprise. What is surprising: 1) just how much Lou Ferrigno stepped up and performed as project manager after being put on blast by most of his teammates for the last few episodes, 2) that Donald Trump allowed Tia Carrere to throw herself on the metaphorical sword for her team and volunteer to be fired, when he fired two people on the men's team for the same thing last week, 3) that

Adam Carolla exposes real reason for his Apprentice firing, manipulative editing

Adam Carolla was fired from Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday in a rather strange double firing, when Donald Trump fired him and Michael Andretti, apparently punishing Adam for refusing to lay blame on any of his teammates by firing two people instead of one. In his Tuesday podcast, Adam revealed the real reason why he was fired: Trump didn't like the structure of the presentation, even though the men did it that way because a producer

Michael Andretti Reflects On His 'Celebrity Apprentice' Firing

Michael Andretti Reflects On His 'Celebrity Apprentice' Firing
The morning after getting fired from "The Celebrity Apprentice," retired race car driver Michael Andretti stopped by "Good Day NY" (weekdays, 7 a.m. Et on Fox) to discuss what went wrong. Andretti caught Donald Trump's ire when he didn't take the wheel of a challenge that required his team to come up with a promotional pitch for Buick. Instead of using his considerable experience and name-recognition in the automotive field to lead the team to victory, Andretti took a back seat to Adam Carolla.

Andretti explained the team's flawed reasoning, which led to both he and Carolla getting fired in a surprising double elimination. "Well, I guess because people see a car and think I should automatically do it. But I don't know how to market a car or whatever. Where Adam Carolla has a car show on Speed, so he knows that sort of thing, so we felt

'Celebrity Apprentice': Michael Andretti's brand isn't for sale -- at least not for $30,000

Viewers watched retired IndyCar driver Michael Andretti go home Sunday (March 11) on NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice," along with the men's project manager Adam Carolla. It was perhaps the most airtime Andretti had received thus far this season.

"I was a little disappointed in some of the editing," he says during a phone interview Monday, while -- where else -- behind the wheel, on his way to meet up with "Celebrity Apprentice" costar and Orange County Choppers co-founder Paul Teutel Sr. (He says the two are meeting to discuss the possibility of collaborating on a future project.) "I was doing stuff all the time [during the tasks]. They always made it look like I was just standing around."

He, like some viewers, was surprised he was fired -- and confused as to why his team lost the challenge.

"We were all confused -- they never critiqued our task," he says. "We didn't know we

Donald Trump fires two on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

HollywoodNews.com: Donald Trump’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ is moving forward, but this week he threw a little twist into it and fired two stars he thought didn’t cut it in the latest project.

After both teams presented to show off Buick’s new vehicle, the Verano, Trump fired two people from the losing team, the men, states RadarOnline.com. Adam Carolla, the project manager, was fired after he refused to bring anyone else back into the boardroom as he felt he should take the fall as the leader.

However, Trump had a problem with another star. Trump ended up also firing Michael Andretti as he didn’t take a larger role on a car project considering he is a race car driver.

Did you agree with his decision?

Adam Carolla, Michael Andretti axed in Celebrity Apprentice

If anything about tonight's Celebrity Apprentice was learned, is that Aubrey O'Day is a ninny, Ivanka Trump is gorgeous but has terrible taste in dresses and Adam Carolla had no issues pointing out Lou Ferrigno's speech impediment. Well, we say adieu to Carolla and Michael Andretti in a special two-fer on tonight's NBC series that sees on again, off again presidential King Maker Donald Trump sit in judgement over a group of wildly disparate stars. Project Managers Adam Carolla and Debbie Gibson faced off on a task that saw the teams having to create a 20-minute presentation and Q&A session for Buick. O'Day's trumped up tale of her mother's car accident had the audience misty-eyed. This was while she

‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Recap: Adam Corolla & Michael Andretti Fired In Shocking Double Elimination

The ladies were at each other's throats, but that didn't stop Adam Carolla & Michael Andretti from getting fired in an oh-so dramatic fashion. On the March 11 episode of Celebrity Apprentice, the contestants dived right into this week's task: creating a "thoughtful" ten-minute presentation and Q&A session to introduce the Buick Verano to a live audience and online viewers. When comedian Adam Carolla and pop icon Debbie Gibson volunteered to be project managers for their teams, Donald Trump made it clear he was disappointed IndyCar legend Michael Andretti didn't step up to the plate. Right away, you knew Michael's decision was going to come back to bite him. Debbie and Team Forte decided to "reflect" different features of the car with different members of the team. Let's just say some members did better than others (ahem, Aubrey O'Day, who kept calling the Verano the Verona). Frankly, I found their presentation a little weak.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Adam Carolla and Michael Andretti stall out

The internet's been abuzz for the last few weeks about how nonexistent Michael Andretti has been on "The Celebrity Apprentice," and although a car-driven task could have been his chance for a big breakout on the show, it instead sent him -- and his project manager Adam Carolla -- home, perhaps undeservedly.  

Granted viewers didn't see much of Michael in the first three episodes of the new season of "The Celebrity Apprentice," but perhaps with good reason. It's obvious to anyone who watches the show, or any reality show for that matter, that the squeakiest wheels get the grease -- i.e., the loudest, most abrasive, most flamboyant, etc. members of the teams get the most airtime. And the retired IndyCar racer didn't even intend to go on "The Celebrity Apprentice;" he was filling in for his son, Marco, an IndyCar Series driver who was scheduled to start filming for

They had to present a ten minute presentation for a new Buick car,and they were judged on informational content,brand messaging,and overall presentation. Adam Carolla was named project manager for the guys. Debbie Gibson decided to be project manager for the girls. The winning team's project manager got $50,000 to their charity. Aubrey O'Day started brainstorming and sort of taking over again. Then Buick executives visited both teams to tell them what they were looking for in a presentation. Next,the guys and girl's team went out to test drive the cars. Clay didn't think Adam cared much about what the other guy's opinions were. At this point, Don Trump Jr. was worried about Debbi and her team because they didn't really have their stuff together
