The above photo of the 3rd season’s cast was leaked back in October, and though NBC has yet to officially confirm the cast, several media reports confirm the new contestants will include Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, wrestlers Goldberg and Maria Kanellis, “Take Home” chef Curtis Stone, comedian Sinbad, Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders, writer/comedian Carol Leifer, actress Holly Robinson Peete, former baseball star Darryl Strawberry and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
This third season of the Celebrity Apprentice will mark the ninth overall edition of the NBC reality competition series.
She’s baaaack! Known as perhaps the most famous bitch villain in the history of reality television, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is getting her own reality show.
More surprising is that Omarosa’s new reality show has her teaming up with her former boss Donald Trump, who’s producing the new series for the TV One network. The upcoming show, titled Omarosa’s Ultimate Merger is a dating showing, and will feature the Queen B herself finding a mate. She’ll be choosing from a dozen potential suitors.
“Omarosa was a great personality on The Apprentice that was watched by over 40 million people as it became the No. 1 show on TV,” says Trump. “Omarosa is smart, witty and difficult, but all of those qualities will make for some very interesting entertainment.”
This new show will added to the long list of Omarosa’s reality tv resume. In addition to her previous appearances on The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, she has also appeared on The Surreal Life, the Battle of the Network Reality Stars and made brief appearances on Fear Factor, Celebrity Poker Showdown and I Love New York.
Other notable stars include Sinbad, Darryl Strawberry, and Holly Robinson-Peete. The most shocking cast member would have to be former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevic. It seems committing a crime increases one’s celeb status.
The third season of the Celebrity Apprentice is expected to premiere in January.
Following an explosive season, Joan Rivers has been named the celebrity apprentice. The final competition was between Annie Duke & Joan Rivers. Both contestants had to choose their teammates. Annie’s team consisted of Dennis Rodman, Tom Green and Brande Roderick while Joan chose Clint Black, Melissa Rivers & Herschel Walker. This season was of the most exciting yet challenging for the contestants. The final goal was to create a charity auction in collaboration with Kodak & Cirque du Soliel. Even though Annie’s team made the most money, Joan’s team was successful in inviting celebrities to attend the event consequently making Joan the next apprentice.
The best part of the show is being able to raise money for the charities. So in my opinion the show was definitely a success. Not to worry, the apprentice will return for its third season. If you missed any of the drama you can visit the NBC website to watch the videos.
Khloe Kardashian was fired on this week’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice and she is not happy about it! Khloe wasn’t fired because of something she did wrong on the show, but rather for a DUI she received in 2007.
Khloe took to her blog to defend herself. “It wasn’t because of my work ethic, it wasn’t because I was slacking,” she writes, “It was because of my DUI. I don’t think I should have been fired for that reason alone. I just wish Mr. Trump would have handled the situation a little differently.”
Kim also chimed in, “I was a little disappointed at how she was given the boot,” she writes. “She obviously made an awful mistake but definitely has taken responsibility for her actions and we are all very proud of her.”
