The holidays are officially over, and as a reward for surviving the networks are bringing us new seasons of Celebrity Apprentice (with brand new host Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Teen Mom 2 season 8. There’s also an all-new episode of Vanderpump Rules.
Also revealed this week, Tyra Banks will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the boardroom. She will be replacing Ivanka Trump as an advisor. I’ll admit I’m not crazy about this choice, but nothing would keep me away from Porsha, Kyle, and Nicole battling it out. Check out the complete Season 8 cast below.
Have you heard the news? Donald Trump finally found the time to devote to the Celebrity Apprentice. The upcoming season has been delayed foreverrrr because His Royal Douchiness has been way too busy. In September, Trump admitted that he was too busy acquiring golf courses (no joke) to put Celebrity Apprentice on the fall schedule. And because he’s the Trump, NBC waited… and we waited… not so patiently. The wait is almost over.
Gossip Cop reported the new season will feature Sharknado star Ian Ziering, tennis player Martina Navratilova, figure skater Johnny Weir, and reality TV star Kate Gosselin. Martina has denied any involvement, tweeting, "I am not doing the Apprentice – wonder what knucklehead started that false info?"
TMZ has leaked a few more names linked to the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice. OMG – hold onto your hat, bottle of wine, cat, whatever you have!
Season 7 of Celebrity Apprentice is a go – and the cast list is slowly being revealed to us. On the list? None other than the Wicked Witch of Eastern PA, Kate Gosselin! Awww – dreams really do come true. Her dreams. Not mine. In case that wasn't clear.
David Hasselhoff reportedly has the contract in his possession, but he hasn't put down his cheeseburger long enough to sign it. Rumor has it that NBC really wants The Hoff because he's so unpredictable.
The network unveiled the latest crop of D-list celebrities who will compete for a $250,000 cash prize for their bank accounts favorite charities! And just as we reported back in October, Italian sisters from another mother — Victoria Gotti and RHONJ housewifeTeresa Giudiceare a part of the cast!
