Donald Trump

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.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF CELEBRITY APPRENTICE?

Buckle up your seat-belts as Nene Leakes, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, graces the latest cover of Rolling Out magazine and she doesn’t hold back when it comes to dishing on some hot topics.

In the mag, Nene responds to Sweetie Hughes recent comments in which she stated Nene was ruining her life. Nene also talks about the Donald, her impending divorce, dating, her experience on the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice and her thoughts on returning for the 4th season of the RHOA.

Excerpts from Nene’s interview below -

ON SWEETIE: “Sweetie is not even a housewife, nor is she a celebrity. I said on the show that Kim was treating her like a slave, and that was my opinion. As a black woman, [if you] allow any woman of any ethnicity to say to you, ‘You black b—-, go and get my cigarettes,’ either you are a slave or you have a problem. And the Free Sweetie campaign had nothing to do with me. Rickey Smiley is a comedian and he did that [as] a complete joke, and people are just laughing about it, and Sweetie is taking it seriously.” Nene then delivers a verbal backhand: “I’m not ruining her life. What kind of life does she have anyway?”

ON HER PENDING DIVORCE: “[When] going through a divorce, you need to be around people who love you and care for you, and there were times that I really didn’t want to talk to people, just because I was failing in that area. I don’t think it’s anything that I did. It’s just after 14 years, we just grew apart.”

ON DATING: Nene reveals she’s now back on the market and looking for Mr. Right. She wants a man who is “confident in who he is, and stays in his lane and not over here in mine,” she says. “He has to be spiritual, he has to have swagger, and it doesn’t matter if he’s black or white.” Mr. Right must also have his own money. “I’m not in it for the money, but, if I date a man he has to have his own money. I think it’s only fair,” she states. “If I’m out here making money, what in the hell am I going to do with a guy who’s not making money? Like, that’s not even cool. I don’t want to take care of a guy.”

ON CELEBRITY APPRENTICE: Nene reveals her much anticipated appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice,” will be nothing like what you’ve seen of her on Real Housewives of Atlanta. “Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t a great experience for me; it was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities (you have eight guys and eight girls), as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas; you work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m.; but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”

ON DONALD TRUMP: Working with Donald Trump was great, however. “Donald is great; he’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” NeNe recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall. And he’s had some brown sugar.” She’s also open to dating the married Donald. “Yeah, I would date Donald Trump … let’s hook it up. I met some really important people through Mr. Trump, he has that swagger.”

ON RETURNING TO REAL HOUSE WIVES OF ATLANTA: “I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season, I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that, we just shoot the show and they show what they want to show.”

In case you’re not aware by now, Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be appearing on the upcoming season of the Celebrity Apprentice, and there is no love lost between the two.

In fact, Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has slammed Star in multiple interviews, recently stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” While Donald Trump revealed during an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show that things turned physical between two castmates on the show, referencing Nene and Star.

Fast forward to today and a new report by Popeater reveals things got so bad that Star has had to hire security to keep Nene away from her.

“NeNe is coming unhinged,” a source close to Star tells Popeater adding that she even made LaToya Jackson cry and got in the face of singing legend Dionne Warwick.

The source adds that the issue is with Nene, who has also been shown getting into multiple fights with her RHOA castmates. “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it.”

And while Nene continues to trash Star in the press, the source adds that Star is trying to rise above the negativity. Star however still feels that Nene could be a physical threat to her, which has led to her hiring her own private security guards.

“Star is a real celebrity, not some cheap reality star who is enjoying 15 minute of fame,” the friend says. “She’s a lawyer and a lady. NeNe can say what she wants about Star, but she doesn’t care now that she knows she’s safe.”

As for the Donald, he is reportedly excited at what is being called the “most dramatic season of ‘The Apprentice’ ever.” The source adds, “Donald Trump loved it. He’s no fool. He knows that this sort of drama is TV gold.”

Meanwhile, part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo, and below is a preview clip.

NBC has now officially unveiled the cast of Celebrity Apprentice 4, though the cast information had been leaked for months.

Based on the cast list, it is certain that this season will likely be the most dramatic yet as Donald Trump even revealed that two of the cast members got into a fist fight during filming, but more on that later.

The cast members this season include Atlanta housewife Nene Leakes, LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey, Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, David Cassidy, John Rich, former “Survivor” champ Richard Hatch, Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath, retired baseball badboy Jose Canseco, rapper Lil Jon, model Niki Taylor and reigning Playboy Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk.

“The next season of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ will be the most exciting yet,” said the Donald. “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!”

And during his recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week, Trump revealed that Nene Leakes had “huge problems” and “fistfights” with Star Jones! “I’ve never seen anything like it on television,” said Trump. “I wouldn’t wanna fight NeNe Leakes,” added Jimmy.

Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, also admitted she is no fan of Star’s during her Friday interview with Hoda Kotb on the fourth hour of the Today Show.

“The whole sneaky, back stabbing, forming alliances, I just don’t like…she may have a new body, but she doesn’t have a new brain. You still think the same even though you lose weight so I don’t know,” said Nene of Star.

The new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres March 6 on NBC.

The Apprentice 2010

The Apprentice returns for an all new season on Thursday, September 16 on NBC.

The show gets back to the basics this season as the two-hour premiere will feature 16 new non-celebrity contestants who have been hit hard by the economic downturn and are fighting back to rebuild their careers.

“I am very excited to have the civilian version of ‘The Apprentice’ back on the air this fall,” said Donald Trump. “The new edition will combine the realities of today’s economic downturn with the grittiness, drama and excitement of the original series. Each of this season’s 16 contestants has been hit hard by the economy and they are fighting back; fighting for a chance to rebuild their careers and for one savvy contestant, the career opportunity of a lifetime — to come and work for me. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain!”

This new group of candidates will compete over 13 weeks to become “The Apprentice.” The candidates include the unemployed, struggling business owners and recent college graduates.

Below are the Photos and Bios of the 16 contestants -

Tyana Alvarado, 41 (Miami, Fla.), was a successful real estate agent prior to the recession. She never imagined being unemployed for so long, yet has managed to adjust to a simpler way of life since losing her six-figure income. Alvarado currently resides in Los Angeles, Calif. and is proud to hold the title of Miss Cougar California, where she feels she can use her brains and her beauty to redefine the perception of a “cougar.”

 

Kelly Smith Beaty Kelly Smith Beaty, 30 (Fayetteville, Ga.), born in North Carolina and raised in Georgia, received her Bachelor of Arts in political science from Spelman College and her Masters in Public Communication from American University. Beaty worked in the press office for the Governor of Georgia and was previously employed in the Atlanta office of a global public relations firm, where she was laid off. She was recently named one of the city’s “Power 30 Under 30.”

Eric RobertsRachel Uchitel

RadarOnline is reporting today that actor Eric Roberts has now joined the season 4 cast of Celebrity Rehab.

VH1 officially announced the cast earlier this week, which included “celebrities” such as Janice Dickinson, Jason Wahler, and Jeremy London. “Eric Roberts is my roommate and is simply amazing,” London told Radar. “He’s an incredible person.”

Eric’s addition to the show is a bit of a surprise considering he has had a pretty successful career as an actor having starred in films such as The Dark Knight and Fight Club.  Eric, 54, is the brother of popular actress Julia Roberts, and father of budding actress Emma Roberts.

In other “celebrity” news, TMZ also reported this week that Donald Trump is no longer interested in having Rachel Uchitel on the Celebrity Apprentice.  For those not familiar with Rachel, she is the mistress extraordinaire who has bedded the likes of Tiger Woods and actor David Boreanaz.

Donald had asked Rachel to be on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice and she had accepted, however it seems the Donald was none too pleased with Rachel’s decision to do Celebrity Rehab.

“It’s a terrible decision.  We have zero interest in her now,” said Donald to TMZ before adding that “‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ is a huge show and ‘Celebrity Rehab’ is not.  I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available.  I’m moving on.”

Celebrity Rehab 4

After months of speculation and casting rumors, VH1 has officially announced the cast of Celebrity Rehab season four today.

Most shocking is the addition of professional mistress Rachel Uchitel, who is infamous for her affairs with Tiger Woods and actor David Boreanaz. TMZ is reporting that Rachel, who was the first mistress named in the Tiger Wood affairs thus receiving $10 million from the sports star to keep silent on their relationship, will bag a cool $500,000 for her appearance on Celebrity Rehab.

Rachel’s addition to the show is even more surprising because TMZ reported this weekend that she was in talks to appear on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice. According to the report, Donald Trump asked her to be on the show and she answered yes. NBC will however have the final say on whether or not she will appear on the show. Guess it does pays to be a ho-bag whore mistress.

As for Rachel’s addiction, a VH1 rep tells TMZ it is an addiction to pills, while UsWeekly is reporting she has no drug or alcohol addictions, adding that the show will focus on her addiction to love and her bad choices when it comes to relationships.

Also joining Rachel for the fourth season is professional hotmess/former supermodel Janice Dickinson, and former star of The Hills & Laguna Beach, Jason Wahler, who has been arrested multiple times in recent years for alcohol related incidents.  No word yet on what Janice’s addiction is.

The remaining cast members this season include former teen heartthrob Leif Garrett, troubled actor Jeremy London, socialite Jason Davis, and R&B singer Keyshia Cole’s mother Frankie Lons.

No longer appearing on CR this season is Tila Tequila, who signed on to appear on the show back in June.  No word on why Tila was dropped from the show.

Just weeks after rumors of being the next Bachelorette hit, comes news that reality Tv Queen Kate Plus Eight star Kate Gosselin is actually in talks to appear on the next edition of the Celebrity Apprentice.

“The producers of Celebrity Apprentice are very interested in Kate,” a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife. “And she has expressed interest as well, but there are a lot of kinks to work out before anything concrete can happen.”

Those kinks include the fact that “It’s a six-week commitment and her kids are not allowed to be part of the show; the Apprentices work every day, Monday through Sunday,” the insider explains. “Many people get to the final stages and almost do the show, but it then turns out that they are unable to appear because of scheduling conflicts.”

Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that the above picture with Donald Trump and his wife was just taken outside of Lady Gaga’s July 7 concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.

“If they can make it work, they will,” the source finishes. “They both want it to happen.”
