Celebrity Apprentice Season 4

Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich

Heading into the Celebrity Apprentice finale last night, it was a tight race between country singer John Rich, 37, and deaf actress Marlee Matlin, 45 (she looks great for 45 no?).

In fact Donald Trump revealed that this was his toughest ruling yet in the history of the show. “I’ve never had to go through something like this… You’ve both been amazing,” said Trump to both finalists before announcing a winner.

Ultimately, John, one-half of the country-music duo Big & Rich, came out on top, beating Marlee to earn a $250,000 check for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Marlee had been competing for the Starkey Hearing Foundation charity.

“Today has been an unbelievable day!” said John after his win. “I got Trump to put on a Stetson hat on national television and now I get to drive down to Memphis with a $250,000 check for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

With the exception of Richard Hatch, who is back in prison for tax evasion (much to the delight of David Cassidy), most of the “fired” contestants returned for the live finale. Though noticeably missing was music legend Dionne Warwick.

Of course the Donald had to revisit the whole Nene Leakes vs everyone Star Jones drama. Nene claimed she had moved on and didn’t hold a grudge, only to yell over Star seconds later while Star attempted to answer a question from Trump.

And right before he made the winner announcement, Trump promised to do something he had never done before. What was that you ask? Well while he hired John, he did not fire Marlee. Rightfully so as there were no losers this season with over $3 million raised for charity– a record for the show.

It was also announced last week that Trump will return for another season of the Celebrity Apprentice.

TELL US – HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS? DID THE RIGHT CONTESTANT WIN?


With Lisa Rinna out of the picture, the Celebrity Apprentice battle is now back to Nene Leakes vs Star Jones… or is it?

According to RadarOnline, Nene and Star are apparently trying to call a truce after coming to blows on the NBC show (on a yet to be aired episode), and slamming each other publicly in recent weeks. Example, Star tweeted a while back, “My neck does not turn when I argue a point & I didn’t spin around a pole to earn what I have. Water seeks its own level…#NotOnMine.” While Miss Nene made it clear she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.”

A source tells Radar the ladies are now trying to reel it back in fearing the feud has gotten out of hand, Geez you think? “Both NeNe and Star are trying to get along better off set – it was really only when the show started taping that their competitiveness kicked-in,” reveals the source. “NeNe felt slighted by Star who she thought was not showing her enough respect – while Star believed that NeNe was all show and no substance.”

The source adds, “They are both head strong women and NeNe believed Star was trying to boss the other contestants around and on top of that they were feuding over hair, wardrobe and make-up too.”

The two are reportedly “trying to be more accepting of their differences” now. Though we’re not quite sure how accurate this story is as Nene has been recently hanging out with Al Reynolds aka Star’s ex-husband. In fact, Al tweeted a photo this week of himself hanging out with the Nene and Basketball Wives’ Jennifer Williams. That pic is below.

On tonight’s all new episode of Celebrity Apprentice titled “Unhappy Campers,” the celebrities use two RVs to organize a recreation experience in the core of the Big Apple. It’s a bumpy ride, however, when one project manager falls victim to a power grab and the other team questions a leader’s mental competence.

TELL US – WHO’S WORSE? NENE OR STAR? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S CELEBRITY APPRENTICE?

The fourth season of Celebrity Apprentice premiered last week, bringing us a whole lot of crazy!

The good news is that this season has only just began, in addition to the fact that the more boring sane contestants, coughs, David Cassidy, will be the first ones eliminated.

On tonight’s new episode titled “Child’s Play,” the “celebrities hope to have the write stuff when they pen an original children’s book, then perform the tale for youngsters. The plot thickens when one project manager fails to unite a team and the other group tries to tame a troublemaking teammate.”

The episode airs on NBC at 9/8c.

Meanwhile, bad news for Richard Hatch, the first winner of Survivor, as he was ordered back behind bars on Friday. The reason? For violating his probation.

If you recall, Richard had previously served more than three years in prison for tax evasion, and was required to re-file his taxes upon his 2009 release, as well as pay what he owed from 2000 and 2001. He apparently failed to do so.

Richard will serve a nine-month sentence. The judge also ordered him to serve 26 months supervised release, during which time 25 percent of his gross income would be garnished and paid to the Internal Revenue Service. Richard now owes an estimated $2 million to the IRS and is set to report to prison on Monday.

Outside the court, Richard revealed he was disappointed and planned to appeal. NBC has stated the sentence will not affect the show in any way.

And finally, it seems Nene Leakes is not the only “celebrity” to clash with Star Jones on the show as Lisa Rinna also took to her twitter page this week to diss Star. Lisa posted a photo of a grey-ish monster on Wednesday and captioned it – “Star Jones without her wig on!” Lisa then posted another pic of a different monster, captioning it “Great shot of me and Star Jones.”

It seems Lisa has since deleted the tweets but thanks to screen shots by Zap2It, photos of the postings are below.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LISA & STAR FEUD? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

Celebrity Apprentice returns tonight for its fourth season with what is being called the most dramatic cast to date.

While the show boasts 16 “celebrities” this season, Mr. Donald Trump can thank one particular castmember in general who seems to be bringing most of the drama based on the show’s previews.

Bravo housewife Nene Leakes, known for running her mouth speaking her mind on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, is taking her drama schtick to the NBC network, with Star Jones playing the role of Kim Zolciak.

Nene has spent the past couple of weeks slamming Star in the press, you know, calling her “special” and stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” Star on the other hand has appeared to take the high road in the feud, stating in a recent interview that she did not want to contribute to the stereotype of the “bombastic black woman.”

Nene however sees things differently. “I’m not surprised that Star used the ‘black women need to get along. Oh, she’s just being a black woman being mad or yelling or whatever,’” Nene tells Zap2It in a recent interview. “She has no fault in this. So, let’s just say that. You can not argue by yourself.” Nene goes on to refer to Star as “phony,” adding, “I’m like this, if you are a b***h, own it. Be a b***h 24 hours, own that. Be that.”

So what is Nene’s strategy on Celebrity Apprentice you ask? “Going into ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I didn’t have any strategies,” admits Nene. “I was a little scared going there. I saw Donald and I thought that he was scary. You know, mean-mugging you and not really smiling. So, I was really scared of that. I just went in, thinking to myself that I’m just here to fight for my charity and I don’t want to be voted off first. That’s all I thought.”

Moving on to tonight’s season premiere — the “sixteen celebrities engage in business-themed battles when Donald Trump’s competition series begins its 11th season. In the opener, the stars must manage a New York City pizzeria.” The celebrities include La Toya Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Richard Hatch, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, Gary Busey, David Cassidy, Lil Jon, Meat Loaf and Mark McGrath.
