Marlee Matlin explains the strategy that made her a finalist on "Celebrity Apprentice"

From The TV Squad:

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), 'Celebrity Apprentice' finalist Marlee Matlin explained her approach to the reality show while being part of a highly volatile team that included Star Jones and NeNe Leakes.

According to Matlin, she reminded herself that the game was for charity and tried to keep personal feelings out of it. "I said to myself, 'Keep your cool, play the game and it's all for charity at the end of the day. And there's nothing personal. It's all business,'" she said.

Matlin admitted she did occasionally blow off steam, but never on the set of the show. "I lost my cool in the hotel room. Not on the set. After work," she said.
