The network is moving forward with plans to restructure the show, which was recently renewed for a 15th season before Donald’s political aspirations severed his relationship with the network. NBC is hoping to find a replacement business mogul host (or hostess) who also has celebrity prowess.
Uh-oh… those hoping to see delusional C-list celebrities trying to revive their careers while vying for the ‘prestigious’ title of Celebrity Apprentice will have to focus all of their attentions on one delusional celeb: Donald Trump.
Sources reveal that while the conservative right-wing Donald focuses on a potential White House bid, that season 15 of Celebrity Apprentice is on hold.
Despite record ratings last season, which prompted the show to be renewed before that season finished airing, insiders for Mr. Trump say NBC is temporarily delaying production because it’s apparently a conflict of interest regarding the presidential run.

Kathy Wakilewas spotted at Tamsen Fadal’s “The New Single: Finding, Fixing & Falling Back In Love With Yourself” book launch party at Urbo NYC, while John Mahdessian and Dorinda Medley attended The Hetrick-Martin Institute: The Hero Fund 2015 Scholarship Fundraiser at The Marble House.
Adam Carolla‘s wife Lynette was the most recent guest on Brandi Glanville‘s Unfiltered podcast. The long-time acquaintances (and fellow podcasters) talked the good and bad of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, the reunion, season finale, and the Amsterdam trip, plus behind-the-scenes casting details, and vented about Brandi’s hypocritical co-stars and online “bullies.” They also chatted Celebrity Apprentice, which Adam also participated in. Brandi weighed in on how reality TV affects marriages, and the ladies gabbed about dating JR and divorce!
Immediately they start discussing the the season finale party. Lynette is unequivocally Team Brandi and was a fan from day 1. Lynette believes Brandi was “thrown under the bus” by Lisa Rinna during the whole Kim Richards needs an intervention conversation. “I never would have said it,” Brandi insists, blaming Rinna for twisting her words. “It’s like, that’s not what I said, you said it first! They even played it over [on the finale] but it’s like it never happened!”
The reality stars were out and about this week, attending events, running errands, and more. Teen MomFarrah Abraham ditched MTV for the night and supported Bravo’s Blood, Sweat and Heels at an event celebrating the show’s second season. She was also snapped visiting Planet Hollywood.
Brandi Glanville‘s new “business partner” Leeza Gibbons was a guest on her podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. The Celebrity Apprentice castmates dished on the show, their friendship, and how Brandi’s portrayal in the media – no thanks to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills – is different than who she is in real life. Leeza played Brandi’s therapist for much of the show, and Brandi eventually confessed her behavior at the RHOBH reunion was horrible.
Leeza agreed to be “semi-filtered” instead of “unfiltered,” which was a semi-shame because Brandi was on her best behavior and kept her trash-talking to a minimum, in lieu of fawning all over Leeza.
Brandi blows a ton of smoke upthe Celebrity Apprentice winner‘s butt, and the favor is returned by Leeza. Unfortunately. “You are the biggest surprise in my life,” gushes NuLisa, “Because you encourage me to drop the parts of me that are a little uptight. The parts of me that protect; the parts of me that need protecting.” Brandi repays the compliment by calling Leeza “clenched,” then laughs uproariously. She later teases Leeza about posing for Playboy. “Let’s get you naked!” she jokes.
After forming a connection with Leeza Gibbons while competing on Celebrity Apprentice, Brandi says she and the season 14 winner are working on a top-secret project together. Leeza is a guest on Brandi’s podcast today, where I presume they’ll discuss plans.
