Meet The Cast Of Celebrity Apprentice All Stars!

Months after Donald Trump announced that he was doing a Celebrity Apprentice All Stars show, the cast has been announced. The new cast appeared together on the Today Show this morning. 

Filming for the new season will begin on Monday with the premiere airing March 13th. Surprisingly missing from the cast – Housewives! NeNe Leakes previously revealed that she had no interest in returning and despite several cast members from her season joining the new season, Teresa Giudice was not on the list (although she still works with the Trump family to raise money for Nephcure). 

Most surprisingly is that Omarosa Manigault is returning to reality TV – and I'm already afraid. 


So who else is IN? Bret MichaelsLaToya JacksonDennis Rodman, Claudia Jordan, Trace Adkins,  Lisa RinnaBrande Roderick, Penn Jillette, Dee Snider, Marilu Henner, Lil' JonStephen Baldwin, and Gary Busey! Oh gosh – Gary! I don't know if I can take it. We all know this is a ahem… ratings ploy!

What no Aubrey O'Day? I'm so disappointed! 

Bret is excited to have a second chance to return to the show in better health. "I was really sick, and this time I'm ready to come back, but being a lifelong diabetic, I'm ready," he said. 

So far everyone is positive about the chance to redeem themselves for their charities. "There's a different energy with this group. Everybody has been through it before so everyone knows what to expect," Marilu Henner explained.  

"We know each other's strengths and weaknesses because we've seen the show. I think everyone is here to have a great time and to support their charities."

"If at first you don't' succeed, try. try again," Lisa added. "I didn't really get a shot last time. I didn't get to get my groove on, so let's see.I don't really know what I'm capable of." And she is confident she'll make it much farther this time! One would hope… 

"it's been very sweet and peaceful and calm, but that's kind of scary," Stephen Baldwin shared. "I think we've got a couple of zingers coming that should be very exciting." And one of those zingers is definitely Gary, who admitted "I'm a champion."

In another interesting twist, former Celebrity Apprentice winners will be returning as advisors. Competitors can expect the guidance of Arsenio Hall, John Rich, Piers Morgan, and Joan Rivers
