This week’s Celebrity Apprenticehad the perfect name, Failure To Launch. At the end of the episode, it didn’t feel like anyone did a particularly good job, with everyone skating by and leaning on their alliances.
The task this week: create a 10 minute presentation on the new Buick Verrano and answer a 10 minute Q & A. Donald tells everyone the task, while standing at Grand Army Plaza, with all his rich friends looking down on him from their high-rises. He says some of them are great people, and others are scum. And which one would you be, Donald? That’s a question for the ages.
It’s obvious that Michael Andretti, the race car driver from a legendary racing family, should be the project manager, but for reasons beyond human understanding, Adam Carolla is chosen as project manager. On the women’s side, Debbie Gibson takes the lead since she has experience performing. I didn’t hear them say the presentation would be at a mall, but okay.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE FULL CAST LIST? HOPING FOR A TERESA & VICTORIA SMACKDOWN? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE NEW SEASON?
The Celebrity Apprentice casting rumors continue to swirl and speculation that Teresa Giudice will be part of the cast is stronger than ever! They better hurry up and decide as filming is expected to begin next week!
Insiders confirm that former swimsuit model, Cheryl Tiegs and race car driver, Marco Andretti are definitely in the line-up!
Tiegs has been on a couple of reality shows herself, including ABC’s short-lived True Beauty, but Andretti’s experience in the reality circuit mostly stems from post-race interviews. Hey, at least he’s likely cool under pressure!
Insiders close to the show also reveal that the fifth season will feature not one, but TWO loud-mouthed Italian princesses: Real Housewives of New Jersey’s infamous table flipping, cookbook shilling mama who took bankruptcy to a whole new level, Teresa Giudice and notorious mob-daughter, Victoria Gotti, star of Growing Up Gottia reality show of yore and the author of several books – who has also had some financial and legal troubles of her own! Oh, please let this rumor be true! The drama, oh the heavenly drama!
Teresa, who possibly beat out her RHONJ co-star and current nemesis Caroline Manzo for a spot on the show, has Caroline’s camp claiming she recommended the business-savvy Jersian to Senor Trump after she turned their offer down. Team Trump denounces this rumor as not even 1/16th true. I wonder if Project Ladybug, charity of Teresa’s only remaining friend, Dina Manzo, will be her cause of choice?
Also speculated to be included in the cast is Debbie Gibson – oh excuse me Deborah Gibson – who sowed her reality TV oats on Skating With The Celebrities (yeah, I don’t remember it either) and a stint on WWHL! Deborah “I Think We’re Alone Now” Gibson seems level-headed and kind of sweet; which means underneath it all the former teen pop prodigy is likely a majah drama queen!
Finally, almost American Idolwinner, Clay Aiken, who has been largely out of the spotlight as of late, might be making his triumphant return to the teevee! And I truly think the philanthropic and low-key Aiken would be a great asset to any Celebrity Apprentice team. The real question is, can he handle the out-of-control drama that is Mrs. T-Money Giudice? Probably not.
Thoughts on the rumored casting lineup? Are you excited about the possibility of a Giudice vs. Gotti throwdown or tired of the cray-cray?
On the 13th episode of the very successful first season, all thanks to Camille?, the ladies celebrate Taylor’s birthday with a lavish bash on a hotel rooftop—but it’s a fiery conflict between Kim and Kyle that takes the cake. Elsewhere, Camille’s marital issues reach the breaking point. The episode titled “Unforgivable” airs at 9/8c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Though the guide says Debbie Gibson is the guest on tonight’s show, Adrienne Malooftweeted this week that both she and Taylor Armstong will be on the show following the finale.
Also in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kyle Richards reveals she is dreading tonight’s episode. “All I can say is this is what I’ve been dreading the whole season,” Richards told PEOPLE. “What’s coming up created an enormous amount of anxiety for me and it’s a very emotional and very difficult episode to see.”
Kyle adds that she hopes viewers will look at the whole picture when it comes to her blowout with sister Kim on the finale. “I get some flack for my relationship with my sister, but you’re just seeing parts that are on screen so it’s very hard to understand a relationship that has been so many years in the making,” Kyle, 42, said.
In more BH news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Camille Grammer has officially signed on to do a second season, but get this, Bravo reportedly had to cave in to a lot of her demands.
According to the Enquirer, Camille made the deal on Tuesday during a meeting with producers of the show, who reluctantly met her demands. The National Enquirer is not the most credible source so only time will tell if the story is true or not.
And finally, Lisa Vanderpump is a guest on The Ellen Show today to dish about the finale. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a backstage photo of Lisa with Giggy in a baby stroller. Click the continue reading button to see the photo, and a preview clip of tonight’s episode below –
