Friday Flashback: When Deni Hines was fired from Celebrity Apprentice

This online parody was but one of the reactions to a memorable reality TV villain on Nine in 2012.

Language, language!

Who can ever forget the TV supervillain that was Deni Hines in Celebrity Apprentice 2012?

I’ll never forget having to moderate a flood of heated comments from viewers across the country. Even Nine stars such as Tom Steinfort, Leila McKinnon and Ed Phillips took to social media to complain, in ways they would probably never dare repeat today.

Hines would probably acknowledge it killed her career for years (Ed Phillips you were correct).

This 2011 parody, using the German film, The Downfall: Hitler and the End of the Third Reich (aka Der Untergang), suggested Hines had at least one big fan.

For the record the other names referenced here are Jason Coleman, Jesinta Campbell, Max Markson, Shane Crawford and Julia Morris the eventual winner… whose career boomed thereafter.
