    Celebrity Apprentice Stars Announced

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071119/...ity_apprentice

    <....>
    Not that they needed any introduction. Not all of them, anyway.
    Not Omarosa, remembered for making everybody mad as a contestant on the first "Apprentice" season in 2004.


    Why did Omarosa agree to come back?


    "I did it for redemption," she told reporters.


    Vincent Pastore (aka "Big *****" from "The Sopranos") was also instantly recognizable.


    So was Stephen Baldwin, who explained his participation by noting he already had "done a bunch of reality ... I thought it would be fun to play the game."


    Likewise Gene Simmons of Kiss, star of his own reality series and unabashed self-marketer.


    <....>


    But others on hand did need a bit of introduction.


    Like Nely Galan, former entertainment president of the Telemundo network and executive producer (and "life coach") of "The Swan," an extreme makeover program that aired on Fox a few years back.


    Or the vaguely familiar-looking woman introduced as Marilu Henner, best-known from the sitcom "Taxi" a quarter-century ago.


    The 14 celebrities won't be vying for a job with Donald Trump, as in the previous six "Apprentice" seasons, but instead will compete in business-oriented tasks around New York City to raise money for their favorite charities. The official "Celebrity Apprentice" will win a $250,000 bonus to donate.


    Tasks will be judged in the boardroom by executive producer-host Trump and his advisers, including, once again, his children/colleagues Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr.



    <....>


    Actress-model Carol Alt acknowledged some initial nervousness.
    "They're going to follow us in real time and that's scary, of course," she said. "I think with most all of us, we want control of our image it's part of the work that we do."


    Galan echoed Alt's trepidation.
    "I've produced reality shows," Galan said. "To be on the other side is a little creepy. It's my karmic boomerang."


    Other cast members include country music star Trace Adkins, Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Nadia Comaneci, Playboy Playmate of the Year Tiffany Fallon, Olympic softball gold medalist Jennie Finch, heavyweight boxing champ Lennox Lewis, "America's Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan and Ultimate Fighting Champion Tito Ortiz.

    ............Starts Jan 3!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Interesting how Gene Simmons will be there.

    Although, usually when a show does a "celebrity" version, it is not very good, but we'll see. Hopefully it'll be a little more exciting than last year.

    Omarosa? A celebrity? Give me a break. That evil sow is no celebrity.

    Talk about stretching your fifteen minutes.

    Marilu Henner will go to the opening of an envelope, so of course she's on board.

    Where do they find these people? Do they all have the same agent that specializes in has-beens and reality show wannabes?

    I am so over The Apprentice. I have zero interest in the "celebrity" version.

    I don't know if I will watch this or not. The past shows have been getting worse and worse.

    Re: Celebrity Apprentice Stars Announced

    Other than an episode or two during the first season, I've never been an apprentice watcher. I did look at the list of participants this time though just out of curiosity since it was "celebrities". My question after doing so... Does anyone actually care about any of these people? Seriously? I think the washed up casts of VH1's Sureal Life have more drawing power than this group. I might have actually tuned in for curiosity sake had they gotten some decent celebs, but this looks pretty darn lame in my opinion.

    Not a fan of Kiss, but I love Gene Simmons Family Jewels. I have to say, that is one savvy business man and I think he'll do very well with this.

    But I probably won't watch.

    I want to see Celebrity Survivor, not the weak version they tried a few years back.

    "But every night, when it gets dark
    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    I wish Donald Trump had gotten his original request of having Britney Spears, Linsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.

    That would have been good.
