>>> donald trump is back in the boardroom with an all-star edition of his nbc hit show, "the celebrity apprentice ."
>> this time the donald has brought back some of the biggest celebrity egos in music, tv, sports and entertainment and they're all ready to get fired again!
>> they keep coming back for this. great to see you.
>> we have one brett who won and decided he wanted to do it again and i thought it was crazy. bret michaels , great guy. he won and he came back. and so let's see what happens with him. but i thought it was crazy to do that. but he's competitive and wanted to win more money because we raised millions.
>> it's for charity.
>> and also you said the word crazy. let's just talk about the other crazies on here. you take -- do you have lloyds of london in gary busey .
>> he's great and deny no, sir rodman.
>> he's safe in korea right now.
>> he likes the north koreans more than us. a little bit different. but dennis is fantastic.
>> was it tough to pick? you had a lot of people who have been canned.
>> we did. but it was easy this time, actually, because it's an all-star version so we picked the best people.
>> oh, you did.
>> so it just worked out fantastically well. and the show, we've shot really a lot of the show, we've had i guess -- we're going to have three or four episodes at the end, at least a couple that will be live. this way nobody -- this way nobody can tell you who won. they can't come out and say, oh --
>> you know who is on again is amarosa. the big demon of the early seasons.
>> i'm in love with amarosa. you know that. amarosa is great. she is evil. she is sinister. one of the --
>> reminds you of someone.
>> who does she remind you of?
>> i don't think anybody. but she has got some edge that's just unique. i think tv guide , one said the most evil person in the history of reality television. think of it. and she loves the title.
>> she is one of the original wuntz.
>> yeah, she is fantastic.
>> and what's --
>> and by the way, she's really crazy-bad in this one.
>> she is?
>> yeah. and it's funny, because usually the first episode, sunday, you sort of --
>> everybody is feeling each other out.
>> this is the best one eve ever had. and it starts with amarosa and piers.
>> and piers won one time.
>> look at piers he won, and then larry king and trace atkins, number one country singer , right up there. all of them. john rich is doing well. joan rivers has done fantastically. and arsenio hall has his own show now.
>> so you're kind of a launching pad for these guys?
>> you know what i get? nothing.
>> don't even send flowers .
>> then they think what do you think of donald trump ? we don't like him. unbelievable.
>> and you care. oh, how -- it hurts your feelings, and it breaks your heart.
>> you weigh in on so many things. you weighed in on seth mcfarland at the oscars. you did not like that performance.
>> i like seth a lot, actually. and i thought he was good. i didn't like the glamour of the whole thing and seth was the roast master on comedy central and did well. seth is really great. i like to see glamour. i hated the set. it was so tacky. it was terrible. i hated the set. and i just thought, you know, old hollywood, the days of "gone with the wind," clark gable .
>> gregory peck was not there.
>> you know the girl is fantastic, wonderful, but falls. so lying on her face so something missing with the glamour, do we agree?
>> glamour wasn't there.
>> i agree with you. although he does sing well.
>> no, i think he 's wonderful . i like him.
>> wish you good luck.
>> i think this sunday night at 9:00, 8:00 central.
>> it is. on nbc. so tune in.
