Carol Leifer stopped by to promote her new book, “When You Lie About Your Age, The Terrorists Win!” and Howard introduced her as having “the biggest boobs in comedy.”

Carol Leifer Is No Apprentice

Carol said she was embarrassed to be this season’s first “Celebrity Apprentice” castoff. “I was a fan of the show. I would watch it and think, ‘I could be really good at this.’ I have a lot of skills,” she said.

Carol blamed her downfall on fellow cast member Holly Robinson Peete and the “uncreative” first task of running a diner.

But She Makes a Damned Good Lesbian

Carol told the crew she turned gay after seeing the movie “Bound”: “I said, ‘I have to have sex with a woman immediately,” she recalled. “[It] consumed me.”

The affair that followed lasted much longer than she had anticipated: “I thought it would be my lesbian fling. I didn’t think I would fall madly in love with her and pussy…pussy’s pretty good. I see what all the rage is about.”

Howard asked after Carol’s relationship with Ellen Degeneres, as Carol had created the sitcom that made Ellen a household name, and Carol complained that Ellen won’t have her on her new show to promote her book—or return her email. Carol also told the crew she loved porn: straight, gay—whatever. “I like something new and fresh,” she said.

But she couldn’t say for certain what she liked about it: “That’s what I love about porn. I don’t know!”

Given this revelation, Gary Dell’Abate brought Carol a stack of porn DVDs that had piled up around the office. Howard later revealed that Gary had also instructed Carol to email him when she needed more.
