If you missed last night’s I Want To Work for Diddy, you missed Poprah getting fired…maybe? We won’t know for sure till next week. What do you think: is Diddy really letting her go, or can she talk her way out of this and back into the good graces of the man they call Mr. Combs? Diddy, really?

    its about time that someone was able to see through this insecure, manipulative, train wreck of a person. I hope that Diddy has really done her a favor and let her out of her misery. how was she ever able to get this far? Most 40 year olds have prepared their lives such that they are no longer chasing rainbows and pots of gold at a time of life when they should be settled and finding the love and comforts of family and friends enough.

  2. Sophia says:

    As a business owner myself, I am absolutely loving this show. I have even got to the point where I am telling my staff- you need to get it together and “hey, do you know you couldn’t work for diddy?” So, I guess they are only qualified to work for me, lol. I’m messing with them, of course. Mr. Combs does demand a lot and some posts are saying he’s too much, BUT when you work so hard to build an empire for yourself, so what? When you don’t work a 9 to 5 and your very livelihood depends on your hustle and what you put forward – only the invested business owner feels that. What happens one pay period if I can’t make payroll, retirement contributions, medical insurance payments for my staff of 50. Until you feel this burden pesonally and know how it feels to have everyone counting on you for direction – whatever. Mr. Combs, do you? Make jokes if you want, send prospectives on their way, and enjoy it. Work Hard, Play Hard. I feel you and you’re a definite inspiration.

  3. Vick says:

    Please say that Diddy fired her. She is so annoying and always finds a way to get out of things. It’s one thing to have a high self esteem, but she is over confident and her skills do not match up. The entire time I was watching that episode, I said why doesn’t she take her lazy self to the location and pick up this guest list. She is not ready to work for Diddy!!!!

  4. corinne says:

    please,please,please, send her home thereason being is because she wouldn’t giva anyone else a chance, she acts like she knows everything about the business which she really don’t. Everytime I watch this show I always wish that she be the one going home, please Diddy do me that favor and send her home.

  5. christy says:

    I do hope that Mr. Combs got rid of her, it’s exactly what Mr. Combs said all mouth and no back up.. There’s a saying “empty barrels makes the most noise”… Kim “Poprah” she’s a joke, I laugh hard when she made that very unrealistic statement that she and Mr. Combs are equal except for the bank account, that’s a crack. She needs to go home and if she does win it’s only a matter of time till she’s gone, Zebras don’t change thier Stripe.

  6. lagginit says:

    Wow ! Poprah has a weight problem, she cant get off of her cellulite azz to catch the elevator and fetch the guest list from carmala. Since a printer is not set on her side of the room or ontop of her desk she makes an excuse for not being able to recieve or print any paper work cause its too far way down yonder by stefanies desk adjacent to hers. What a lazy cow! Pack your bags and go home already. Please Diddy send her home dont leave us in suspense.

  7. cindy says:

    Miss Kim is not ready to work for Diddy. She talks all this smack about knowing the entertainment business but she couldnt even tell Diddy’s real ~!*$_$%&&@~!`$* istants the names of the owners of the other companies that she is supposedly inviting? She loves to drop names, funny iv’e never heard her name dropped until now. She should have taken her butt downstairs and got that damn list instead of waiting, Diddy’s not waiting. She should have had her own list printed so she could have something to show him until she got the other list from Kamala and then she can merge it together.
    Bossman didn’t have anything in front of him to go on. She talks so much but doesn’t deliver the goods. She can’t even get Honey to walk. She is not ready.

  8. Cuteassme says:

    Hey I just wanted to start out sayng Diddy I luv your show. Thank you! what took you so long to let Kim go? She is so xxxxxxx annoying. I really think that none of the people on this show are good and should work for you but if I had to choose one person I would choose Mike.. and with that being said i think he wants it more ,with the girls I think they just want to be on t.v. and it isn’t as serious to them as it is with Mike.

  9. Nancy says:

    I hope Kim is not fired and all of you people who are saying she should be just don’t like her but she is the best for the job. Mike does nothing and if you look at all the episodes as I have you will see that plus he can’t be trusted as proof in the hustle challenge when Kendra did all the work then he turned on her at elimination and in that challenge Kim made all that money by herself with that dead wait Suzanne.And Suzanne may have a Harvard Degree but she life stupid. And that little blond chick just thinks she is going to get by on her looks. So people actually watch the show and the work being done and be fair! Don’t judge by episode 9 because everybody messes up when the first work with Diddy even on Making the band.

  10. GRACE says:

    MR DIDDY LET ME FIRST SAY I LOVE YOUR SHOW, I AM SURE I AM NOT AS YOUNG AS MOST OF YOUR VIEWERS I HAVE WORKED FOR A COMMUNICATION COMPANY FOR 33 YEARS & AM ABOUT TO RETIRE. I SEE YOU ARE A MAN OF GOOD JUDGEMENT BUT WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG TO LET KIM GO I THINK SHE FAKED THAT ASHMA THING SO SHE WOULD NOT HAVE TO PARTICIPATE THAT WAS UNFAIR TO THE OTHERS & SHE IS ALL TALK & I AGREE WITH CHRISTY WHEN SHE BLOGGED THAT “she made that very unrealistic statement that she and Mr. Combs are equal except for the bank account” I WAS INSULTED FOR YOU KEEP HER FIRED I CAN NOT WATCH HER ANOTHER WEEK

  11. Trelly86 says:

    I don’t think Diddy fired Poprah. She is the show’s #1 cast member. Many people tune in not only because they love the show, curious to see what happens each episode, but also to see Poprah and what she will say or do next. Grant it, she’s over confident, says some crazy things, even about Diddy. I know she has to know he sees and hears everything they say and do. I really believe the producers coach her to keep it up because the fans love it. Just like New York, Poprah has made a name for herself. We’ll definitely remember her. In all honesty, none of them are ready to work for Diddy. I agree Mike can’t be trusted. I was very disappointed with him when he turned on Kendra. He should have nominated Boris and let Boris select someone, which it would have probably been Kendra. Even though Stephanie was awful, in that challenge, they made a pack and they were sticking together and Mike should have stuck in there with Kendra. Another case where we sell each other out. Them other folk stick together and we turn on each other. That’s SAD! In my opinion, Diddy should do another casting call and start all over. Previous applicants need not apply. If he has to go with his current choices, Poprah would not last. Her mouth would cause her to loose her job, plus her know it all attitude would frustrate his current staff. Mike has “some” potential, he can be trained to do the job, but he needs to step it up. Diddy can mold him and groom him to be the best !%%&&~`#)!^~$`# istant he has ever had. Stephanie and the Harvard grad is going home. They’s definitely not ready to work for Diddy.

  12. Felicia says:

    Hey I must say some times you like kim and sometimes you hate her azz. She is so damn lazy. All she had to do was to take her big azz down stairs to get the list and she didn’t. The others were right if the lady with the other list does not show up then they are screwed. Damn I just can not believe the lazy azz cow did not go down stairs. Kim can easily win this but she has such a big azz mouth and ego.

  13. Ms.J says:

    I have a disgusting feeling that this is just a tease to all of us who want Kim out. It’s hard to believe that Diddy would want a back-stabbing, smile-in-your-face/slice-you-in-the-back type of person to work for him. Kim professes God is working on her behalf, but God doesn’t like ugly and I’m positive He doesn’t appreciate the way Kim’s foul-mouth, no one’s better than me persona is representing Him. PLEASE Diddy! Don’t do it!!

  14. anonymous says:

    do people really thing Diddy reads this blog….?

  15. sue says:

    As soon as Diddy said”you’re not ready to work for Diddy”, I knew it was fake! I just knew it! I cannot believe that he thinks that the other three are better then Poprah! None of them are as smart, pushy and agressive, stern, or the go-getter that Poprah is. Yes, she made a mistake, and just like that he let’s her go? Yes, she should’ve known that Diddy hates the words no and can’t. He just wanted one last eye-popping twist to the show. The other two women are too intimidated and hesitant at times. Poprah was not afraid to go after what he needed; and I was kind of surprised that she did not go get the list. That looked like something that one of the other women would do; and I could see Poprah where Diddy was, standing over one of them and asking them why they did not have the list and to go get it. No, that was too easy,it’s not over yet! You watch! If he did fire her, he’s not as smart as I thought,he’s a fool.

  16. poprah says:

    DON”T FORGET THIS ISH IS SOOOOOOOO EDITED…

    DO YOU REALLY THINK I WOULDN’T HAVE GOTTEN THIS LISTEN IN THE SAME BUILDING IF IT WAS JUST THAT SIMPLE. COME ON NOW!

    Screw trying to recap the story, I’m just gonna state some freaking facts for the record:

    Throughout this challenge, my focus was the VIP Lists, because the last thing we needed was a herd of people at the door yelling and screaming that they couldn’t get in because they’re not on the list. If you’ve ever been to a real VIP Party, drama at the door can shut down your whole event. So that was my priority.

    We knew there would be no Internet access at the club, so how could I make sure I checked all the emails for all RSVPs, if I did not do it at the office? My teammates’ tasks, which were related to the event, could only be done at the club. They couldn’t do any decorating, hosting, setting up the dressing room, etc., until they let us leave for the club, which was difficult with all the tasks from Diddy.

    So it only made sense for me to make sure the office stuff was done, while they did the other Diddy requests. We were not allowed to split up and some of us leave for the club, while some worked at the office. I knew that if we went to the club with an incomplete or inaccurate VIP list, we were screwed, and it would be too late to fix it.

    Every time I started backing working on the list, they stopped me and told me to do something else. Diddy told me at the penthouse to get 300 to 400 more people to come to the party. But right after that, he sent me to walk his freakin’ dog and take it to the groomer. I said, “OK,” but I decided to multitask and planned that once I got the dog to the groomer, I would work on the list while they serviced the dog. I had my laptop, my phone, charger, and everything ready to work. But I had to leave and lost two hours of critical time in traffic, going back and forth to the dog groomer, when I could have been working all along and met them at the club, with 2 complete and accurate VIP lists.

    The girl with Diddy’s list of people he specifically told her to invite sent me a list. Then she called me and says it was no good, so I couldn’t use it, because there would be lots of changes.

    So I worked it out with her, trying to be helpful. The plan was that I would get the list from her at the club when she was finished, so she had time to make sure it was accurate. I was trying to show I could work with his existing team and be flexible. But instead I get blamed for her f*** up. The next thing I know, Norma says Diddy wants to see the list, although they both know I’m waiting on this girl. But before I could call her again, they send me another goose chase through the whole building to invite the whole damn Bad Boy staff, one by one, to a party they are all already coming to.

    Immediately after I get back to my desk, Diddy comes straight to me and says I want to see the list. I explain the truth, not excuses, that I’m still trying to get in touch with the same girl he scolded earlier, who has it, and who already works for him. But he blames me for it and says I’m not ready to work for him. It seems to me that she wasn’t ready to work for him!

    ALWAYS REAL, POPRAH!

    That’s where this episode left off. Make sure to catch the finale to find out Poprah’s fate.

  17. Raven says:

    Can someone please explain to me where they picked these candidates up? Seriously, I knew from the ‘top ten’ that not one candidate was going to be worth a crap and every episode just proves my point further. In my opinion, none of these guys is ready to be Diddy’s !%~`(&!$~@$!_^+ istant…

  18. Sean Combs says:

    Attention Attention.
    There was a post on here early this afternoon from a young woman that was having money problems. I no longer see your post.

    Please do post it for me again, as I do indeed read these posts. Most are silly, therefore I glance over them. However, your post, young lady touched my heart and you may be exactly what i need in an employee. You do seem passionate and sincere and I will return your e-mail as soon as i possibly can with the hope that you may come work for my.

    Diddy

  19. mobetta says:

    I have to say that i would love to work for someone like Diddy. Due to the fact that he is a go getter and there is no !%%%$~(**`*&#&(@) assness allowed. He is the type of man that does not play games when it comes down to taken care of the business. The people that he has on the show does not really know what they really want. Mike appears to want the job but the way he threw kendrea under the bus i m not to sure. I myself does not have a degree as of yet but i am working towards that. But really what does that have to do to get the job. I am the type of person that can really handle the business and would love the oppty to work for a man of his status. Due to the fact that he makes things happen! Holla at me Diddy if you really want a personal )_^_~(^$$~+*%$& isant that is not with the !%%%$~(**`*&#&(@) assness.

  20. Alexis says:

    AAAAAAAAHHHHH!HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I WAS CRACKING UP LAST NIGHT. THAT IS SO GOOD. IT’S ABOUT TIME THEY GOT RID OF THAT FEMALE. SHE IS A KNOW IT ALL. LIKE WE SAY DOWN IN THE SOUTH, A PROUD PERSON WILL GET NOWHERE; BUT THOSE THAT LISTEN TO COUNCIL WILL NEVER LACK.

  21. Mrs. Regnier says:

    (sigh) What can I say??? Ms. Kim is a good observer in a theoretical sense. She has lots of potential and she could be a great _~*`^`(^__(`+%* et to someone someday; However, She is an increadibly lazy, excuse making, I’m better than you know it all. Ok, She moved out on her own at 15 and had to hold her family down… That’s all fine and dandy. She’s not the only person who had it rough, I’m 23 and I would have rather lived her life than to have lived mine; However, I thank God everyday for what I have, and that lack of. Just like Mr. Combs’ song goes…”…in the time of trouble and faced with stuggle I call nobody but you, when I’m feeling lonely noone around me STILL I call on you…” It’s important that we stay humbled and not forget about God. Kim….Get to know him.

  22. niki zoe says:

    Well I must say that TV editing makes for great television. Although Kim appears to be a overly opinionated and overly &)`&~*!^#(^`*+@ ertive female, would we be saying the same thing if she were a man? She understands and practices strategy of breaking down her competition very well. I do not want to shortchange the other people on the show because each person has his or her own “gift” which they bring to the table. I hope that Kim will continue to humble herself and grab the reins of the job as her own. As for the others, please do not fear man; Mr. Combs is a man who has achieved great success however he is not the Creator. Humble yourself, put your ego aside, grow more backbone and &)`&~*!^#(^`*+@ ert your position as to why you should work for him.

    I am a great admirer of Mr. Combs and the empire which he built from the ground up over the years. He is the quintessential business, music and fashion mogul who gives an undiscerning level of attention to obtaining success and he continues to prove this time and time again. As a young newly minted fashion professional, I have adopted a lot of his mantras and must say that they are helping me to build my empire. Hey I would even go and work for Mr. Combs which I know will help me to build my business game higher. I would like to thank Mr. Combs for inspiring this young fashionista from Chicago to continue to reach for greatness.

    Of course Poprah is still on the show, FOOLS.
    There are behind the scene segments that you all dont know about, including myself.
    Poprah didnt go anywhere she remains to be the Winner!
    She has proven to America that she can get the job done, and Im with her all the way.
    Poprah means :
    High Energy
    Creative
    Spirited
    #1 Hustler
    No doubt about it she is ALL woman…. of business, “The Money Maker.”
    SALUDE Ms. Poprah

  24. iAmDaQuEeN says:

    I must say, when I first started watching the show, I thought that Kim and Diddy were both out of their minds. As the show went on, I realized that Diddy is a phenomenal business man, and like he said, it would be an honor to work for him, and Kim is definately a go-getter. The editors want us to think that Kim is just bossy and lazy to a certain extent. Kim has stepped up to every challenge except for the one where she had the asthma attack. She was only voted in the bottom two because of her “attitude”. It would irritate me too if everyone around me were sleeping on my great ideas. We have a problem, I have a solution, let’s do this! That was Kim’s whole attitude. Her first team was just weak. She’s more than just a talker, that woman is exactly what Diddy needs. If you ask me, she’s almost the female version of him. I think they would work very well together. If he did fire her, he needs to get her back QUICK!

  25. LT says:

    THIS SHOW JUST MAKES ME SEE HIM IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT. I UNDERSTAND WORKING HARD FOR WHAT YOU WANT AND COMING FROM NOTHING. BUT TO ME HE IS NOT TREATING THEM LIKE HUMAN BEINGS. HE WANT’S THEM TO READ THE NEWSPAPER, WIPE HIS %%&@*`#%!%!()(^ AND SPEND THE TIME HE’S SUPPOSED BE SPENDING WITH HIS FAMILY. I KNOW ALOT OF THIS STUFF IS EDITED, BUT I WOULDN’T BE SUPPRISED IF HE MAKES THEM SAY “YES SIR BOSS” BEHIND THE SEENS. I HOPE NO OTHER CELEBRITY THAT I LIKE MAKE ANOTHER SHOW LIKE THIS, BECAUSE I WILL PROBABLY JUST END UP NOT LIKING THEM TOO. TO ME IT SEEMS LIKE HE WANTS TO BE 10 DIFFERENT PEOPLE AT ONE TIME. HE HAS ENOUGH MONEY, WHY DON’T HE JUST GET HIMSELF CLONED. IF I WANT TO KNOW THE NEWS I WILL READ IT. IF I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH MY KIDS I WILL DO IT. HOW CAN YOU FEEL COMPLETE HAVING SOMEONE ELSE HELPING YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE. I GUESS MONEY DOES MAKE THE WORLD GO AROUND.

  26. Jim says:

    Well, I’m not sure how this will play out, but a few things do come to mind.
    First: Mr. Combs has said from the very beginning that it takes a special person to handle this job. Look at all the “former” )@%)&$#&$_#$#(* istants they interview during the show. Each brought something different to the comapny. Second:

  27. Jim says:

    Second: Kim makes good TV. I have known of Mr. Combs’ music, but didn’t know he was involved in so many industries. For Mr. Combs to take a new *~%!_!~+)$#(_(+ istant, he has to trust that person to get the job done, no matter what. Kim has been a vicitm of the editors since the first episode. We do not have the luxury of seeing what actually happened during the entire day. Yes, Mr. Combs allowed Kim to remain behind during the morning run, but he also asked her to do additional tasks regarding the dog. Interruptions come during a day when you least need them to happen. But, a true *~%!_!~+)$#(_(+ istant will take the interruption and not only fulfill that task, but also the original task at hand. I’m not saying I could do any better. Kim has talents, no doubt about that. But sometimes she gets so involved in her own perceptions of the situation that she lets her mouth get in the way. She has said some things in the past that I would be afraid might come back to haunt her, if Mr. Combs hears her say those things.
    Third: Why is it that in every episode, the person with the most traiining in that task is the person that messes up the most and then winds up going home? Rob lead his team all over the woods and he was the military guy. Red was the club promoter that couldn’t pull off the event for Mr. Combs. It makes no sense to me that you would fail at your strongest point? What is Kim’s strongest point? Talking! She has talked her way out of more eliminations than anyone else.
    Fourth: I couldn’t see myself doing any better than the 4 people that are trying to become Mr. Combs’ *~%!_!~+)$#(_(+ istant.

  28. HollaH says:

    Yeah kim yaps alot, but so does Diddy. At least Kims straight up and fullfilling responsibilities.
    Well like Jim, Doc Robb and Sarita said she gets the job done and her weight shouldnt be an issue.
    She has been the strongest throughout the competition and we all know that the hustler is the one to lead and get the job done.
    Props To POPRAH

  29. Fed Up says:

    Watching Kim finally getting what she deserved was like having the greatest orgasm! I just knew that Diddy was going to fire her %)@$*^_!+&)@~(!

  30. alexia says:

    i love this show

  31. Sabrina says:

    Cedric who was a finalist for Diddy’s ($++`(!@$+@%(%% istant ‘s lost out to an Attorney who ended up kicking Diddy in the rear after her 15 minutes of fame. Cedric could of had that ($++`(!@$+@%(%% t job and would had been excellent at it. He was the favorite but Diddy wanted the Attorney. Its a shame the two finalist who appeared on the Oprah show to hear who the winner would be was not given a chance to try out for the TV show or be a contender.

    If Poprah (joke) is still on the show then it will show that its OK to be loud, rude and unprofessional when your applying for a job.

    Diddy don’t send the wrong message. Educate our youth on “conduct becoming” when applying or working in an office.

    If your not satisfied which your finalist, have another show and keep doing it until you hire Cedric.

  32. funnygirl says:

    Ok, ok people. I am not a Kim hater or a Kim supporter. Yeah she has had a few good ideas and some not so good ideas. Bottom line? She is smart. Not because of her ideas, but because she set out before the show to be the one they love to hate. It’s not about good attention or bad attention, it’s about the attention. She is no fool, and neither is Diddy. I don’t give a damn what she did on the show, as long as it has folks like you and me coming back to see what outrageous things she is gonna do the next week, they are going to keep her on the show. Diddy is about the dollar, the publicity, the ratings. He doesn’t care about her talking crazy to people or being rude as long as she is doing what needs to be done to ultimately make him some money. If ya’ll think she got voted off or that this is the end of Kim you are sadly mistaken. She is working for Diddy right now and probably it’s gonna be a show following her trying to make it as his ^+$^$*`)*^@(`+@ istant. (call me so I can get the idea credit). I know the game. It’s all about the hustle. Can’t stop, wont stop right? Don’t fall into the cliff hanger trap. Again, just another ploy to get you to come back and watch the finale to see her get kicked off. GOTCHA! Congrats Kim! Get in where you fit in! And when you make it, really impress Diddy and look me up (like he did those random models) and put me on your team. Game recognizes game.

  33. Holly says:

    SABRINA—

    WHAT are YOU talking about???? Who is CEDRIC and the Attorney???? WTF????

  34. D. M.V. says:

    That was one of the most satisfying endings to a show/series I have seen in a long while.
    Congrats Mr. Combs on another success.

  35. lee lee says:

    ok this is what i waited for why does this girl think she is equal to diddy she is nothing and with that mouth of her is she was so good at what she does then why she does not have her own company by now.Another thing who gains weight because she was tried of the men not lookin at her in a bussines way and they just wanted to sleep with her!!!!!! Oh pleaseeeeeeee that is the most dummiest thing i ever heard. I am so glad that diddy saw right through you go sit down and think about how dum u look and may be u be some body!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. JACKIE says:

    DAMM IS ANYBODY GOOD ENOUGH TO WORK FOR DIDDY I KNOW I CANT TO MUCH DRAMA.TO MUCH BICTHNESS.

  37. kelly says:

    that was so ruse of poprah to do that to mr. combs i think she should be #~^#^`&((_+(+`+`) ng her bags and going home. She was talking over him and that is just not right, she should have had that list ready or atleast gone down stairs and gotten it. that is what it hink about episode 9 i guess we’ll see what happens

  38. Debbie says:

    I’m so glad that Poprah went home. I was waiting for that for so long and to have Diddy fire her personally was icing on the cake. She got fired because of her attitude not because of her qualifications. I knew she was gonna go home from day one. The only reason they kept her on was becasue she made good T.V.
    I don’t think alot of people understand out there what the real world is about. Diddy is 10,000% right. I know from experience that when it comes to people like Diddy its really not personal. So if you can’t handle the work load then your gonna be fired. Nobody has time to give you a second chance especially when there are qualified people just waiting to work for him. I’m so sure that when you can prove to Diddy that you can do the job you will learn the type of person Diddy really is. And its not what you see on TV its a much softer side.

  39. Debbie says:

    I KEEP READING SOME OF THESE BLOGS AND I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD THINK THAT KIM WAS RIGHT FOR THE JOB. PEOPLE WHO TALK BACK AT EVERYTHING AND DON’T LEARN TO KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT WHEN APPROPRIATE NEVER GO FAR IN THIS WORLD. AND THAT’S NOT KISSING $^_)@&`@_$#)!&~ ITS JUST COMMON SENSE.

    diddy is a fake wannabe i can;t stand him hes nuthn without biggi
