Last night’s Celebrity Apprentice was sponsored by Crystal Light, a drink I’m pretty sure is only purchased by dieting women. In fact, the first true reaction anyone had to the announcement of this week’s sponsor, was by Aubrey O’Day ,who gushed that the low-calorie drink helped her lose weight.

Apparently, Crystal Light is attempting to cash in on Bethenny Frankel’s lady drinker gravy train and has created a line of drinks inspired by cocktails. This week’s assignment for our celebrities was to each throw a fabulous launch party for two of the drinks: Peach Bellini and Pomtini. Immediately, I thought that Teresa Giudice was a natural choice for project manager. Not only has she thrown several huge parties on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she actually has a line of (alcoholic) Bellini’s on the market.

Instead, Aubrey took the job for Forte. No one mentioned it on the show, but I really feel disappointed that Teresa didn’t step up on this task. Is her strategy simply just to coast? Clay Aiken talking heads that Aubrey is a natural for this task, because “Aubrey popped right out of her momma’s chotch and started grabbing on to the stripper pole.” Clay Aiken: hilarious! Who knew?

The two-hour long Celebrity Apprentice is finally starting to feel like its actual running time and not like slow torture. Why is this show so long? How Donald Trump managed to buy two hours on NBC during one of the best nights on television is incredible. Anyway, the show is finally starting to pick up!

The task last night was to create a “viral video” and presentation for O’Cedar’s new “Pro Mist Mop.” Finally there is a task where everyone is on equal ground, as I doubt any of these celebrities had either seen or touched a cleaning implement in a very long time. Donald Trump and the O’Cedar suits meet up with the teams at the gorgeous New York Public Library and decide on project managers.

Lou Ferrigno steps up as men’s project manager and Tia Carrere steps up for the ladies. They both kinda have to after their boardroom appearances last week and complaints about not being used. Time to walk the talk!

So it seems that since being fired let go by Bravo, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub has, yet, to move on to bigger and better!

First, she appeared on VH1′s Famous Food, which turned out to be a flop, and now she is peddling her voice out to her fans for $18 a minute!

Yes, Danielle joins a slew of other Z-list celebs such as Michael Lohan, Tila Tequila, Nadya Suleman, and Angelina Pivarnick at Dial-A-Star.com which promises, “Dial-A-Star.com is the only place you can talk directly to a TRUE celebrity! Our service is unique an offers a completely discreet one on one conversation with celebs. The service is completely private and anonymous.”

Rumor Fix was the first to break the news and below are the rates for the other “stars” -

  • Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina Lohan – $10
  • Lindsay Lohan’s dad, Michael Lohan – $10
  • Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick – $10
  • Octomom Nadya Suleman – $15
  • Former Charlie Sheen porn star Capri Anderson – $10

Another fun fact? Dial-A-Star just happens to be owned Gina Rodriguez - a former porn star! Some are now wondering what type of convos are actually taking place during these calls. A screenshot of Danielle and other celebs on the site is below.

Danielle is, however, proud and excited about her new gig as she tweeted this morning: “I’m signing in at 8am to take your calls. Its been great adding voices to the faces of so many who’ve called! 1-888-695-4543 Ext: 106474.” Hey, a girl’s gotta earn her money somehow!

Moving on to Teresa Giudice, who continues to be very subdued on Celebrity Apprentice, almost to the point that you forget she’s even on the show! However, it is Teresa’s snafu in the boardroom last night that has people talking.

See, while in the boardroom, Teresa was called “slow” by her teammate Patricia Velasquez, who considered her the weakest link on the women’s team. Teresa of course spoke up to defend herself and, well let’s just say, she ended up proving Patricia’s point in the process!

Teresa stated: “A writer? I could be a writer. I just finished my third book. I have a ghostwriter. So I could get my writing done, no problem.” Wowzers.

Teresa took to her twitter page last night to defend herself in a series of tweets. She wrote -

“You gonna knock me down, I’m gonna knock you right back down!”

“Meant to say CO-writer not ghostwriter, I just got all caught up in the moment. I have a co-writer for my books. Her name’s right on them.”

“I’ve never hidden that I have a co-writer for my books. I’m not a professional writer. I’m a cook! Why wouldn’t I work w/ a pro?”

“I was just trying to say I could get writing help from pros too– just like everyone else in that room was. #CreativeLiars.”

Finally, it seems we are much closer to the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 4 premiere than we thought. According to a tweet by Melissa Gorga, the next season of the RHONJ will debut next month on Bravo!

In looking at Melissa’s twitter page today, it appears the tweet has since been deleted. Perhaps Bravo asked her to, as they want to make the announcement themselves. Melissa made the original tweet over the weekend.

Should be a great season, as we will get to see the rift developing between Teresa and pretty much everyone else on the show.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S NEW LINE OF WORK? WOULD YOU PAY $18 TO TALK TO HER? WHAT DID YOU MAKE OF TERESA’S “GHOST WRITER” COMMENT? EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW RHONJ SEASON?


On last night’s season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice, we met our new gang of folks of questionable notoriety on a quest to make money for charity…and advance their dead (in the case of Arsenio Hall and Dee Snider) or just getting started (Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice) careers.

The first challenge was for each team to take over a sandwich shop, and sell sandwiches to raise money for their respective charities. The ladies decided to go with the name Forte, suggested by pop queen Debbie Gibson, which seems like a grammatically incorrect choice, but that’s probably not a strong point for this bunch. The men choose Unanimous, since they’re all friends. Aww. I would have expected something manlier given their choice of Paul Teutul of American Chopper as their project manager. Something like “Brakes and Babes” or “Muscle Confidential.”
