NEW YORK, May 4 (UPI) -- Rivals Joan Rivers and Annie Duke were named the finalists on "The Celebrity Apprentice" in New York Sunday night.

Eliminated in the penultimate episode of NBC's business-themed reality series were Clint Black, Jesse James and Brande Roderick.

Rivers stormed off the show during the previous week's episode in protest of what she felt was host Donald Trump's unfair firing of her daughter Melissa. It was unclear whether the elder Rivers would return for the rest of the series until Sunday night's episode aired and she was there.

She and Duke will compete in a final challenge next week.
