Back in January, the newest group of celebrity wanna-be-apprentices that would play for charity and bragging rights was announced by Donald Trump.
I’m not embarrassed to admit that when Bret Michaels won the last Celebrity Apprentice, I did the happy dance (I grew up in the 80′s…cut me some slack!).
So when I read all of the celebs that will appear in this season’s Celebrity Apprentice, which premiers on Sunday, March 6, 2011, I was really excited for March to get here.
The celebs include “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes, actresses Lisa Rinna and Marlee Matlin, model Niki Taylor, singer Dionne Warwick, former “The View” co-host Star Jones, Playmate Hope Dworaczyk, and LaToya Jackson.
On the men’s team, we can expect to see rapper Lil Jon, actor Gary Busey, former baseball player Jose Canseco, tax-evading “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch, former teen idol David Cassidy, and singers Meat Loaf, John Rich and Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath.
I see a train wreck headed in our direction, and I’m excited to see it coming!
Donald Trump’s youngest son Eric will join siblings Ivanka and Donald Jr. as his advisors, along with long-time Trump employee and Apprentice advisor George Ross.
In a press release, Mr. Trump really plays up the excitement coming for this new season: “The next season of The Celebrity Apprentice’ will be the most exciting yet. We are thrilled to bring back the celebrity format with 16 new and unbelievably talented celebrities who will help me make The Celebrity Apprentice’ one of the hottest shows on television this spring. This will be season 11 — Amazing!”
The Donald also let it slip that we can expect to see plenty of fireworks between Leakes and Star Jones. “It was like fistfights all the time,” Trump told Jimmy Fallon during an interview.”I’ve never seen confrontations like that. In fact, they make Omarosa look nice!”
They’re going to make Omarosa look nice? I cannot wait for this season to begin!
Last season’s Celebrity Apprentice raised over $1.25 million for various charities.
Are you looking forward to the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice? Who do you think will win?
