Lou Ferrigno on his "Celebrity Apprentice" firing.

The morning after Lou Ferrigno was fired on "The Celebrity Apprentice," he stopped by "Good Day New York" (weekdays, 7 a.m. ET on Fox) to defend his controversial performance on the show. Ferrigno has had his share of critics this season, including Dee Snider and Lisa Lampanelli, who the former "Hulk" actor got into an argument with in Sunday night's boardroom.

Lampanelli was mad about last week's eliminations, and called Ferrigno and Dayana Mendoza "useless" and said they had "five brain cells between them." When they got into another argument in the boardroom, Ferrigno said, "Lisa's lucky that she's not a man, because if she was I'd throw her right through that window."

On "GDNY," Ferrigno joked about the tense moment, but still got a jab in on Lampanelli. "I'm a strong team player. And I think because Lisa Lampanelli, because she's not physically fit, I think it affects her brain, so what I need to do is train her and change her from 'Queen of Mean' to 'Queen of Lean,'" he quipped.

When the show played Dee Snider's criticisms of Ferrigno, in which the rocker alleged that Ferrigno was a "one-note horn," Ferrigno shot back that he "was smart enough to get him fired."

Rosanna Scotto then aired her final grievance against Ferrigno, a fellow Brooklyn-native: that his last-second pleading with Donald Trump was not sufficiently "Brooklyn-esque." Ferrigno put a more positive spin on the moment. "It wasn't begging, the Brooklyn thing is you don't take any crap and you always want that second chance," he clarified.
