Are you ready for the most dramatic boardroom ever?
NBC unveiled its latest lineup of what they've generously described as "stars" for the new season of Celebrity Apprentice, and while there are one or two "how'd they get thems" in there (and more than one or two "why'd they get thems" in there), the cast is more or less a lesson in recycling from reality shows past. (Shocking, right?)
So who made the cut?
Well, 16 celebs will be competing for the chance to become Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice and win a hefty donation to the charity of their choice.
First up, the women.
La Toya Jackson (who never met a camera she didn't like), former View hostess Star Jones, Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes, Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, trout pouter Lisa Rinna, former supermodel Niki Taylor, legendary singer Dionne Warwick and Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk are among the potential whore pit vipers up for the challenge this year.
On the men's side, professional kook Gary Busey, juicehead extraordinaire Jose Canseco, former teen idol David Cassidy, potentially jail-bound Survivor trainwreck (surely this violates some kind of probation ?) Richard Hatch, rapper Lil Jon, legendary singer Meat Loaf, not so legendary singer Mark McGrath and country star John Rich will all battle it out.
Anyone else hoping Hatch wins it all just o see whether or not he learned his Uncle Sam lesson the first time around?
Regardless, at least one man is certain this will be the biggest, classiest, hugest season of the reality show ever.
"The next season of The Celebrity Apprentice will be the most exciting yet," Trump said. "We are thrilled to bring back the celebrity format with unbelievably talented celebrities who will help me make The Celebrity Apprentice one of the hottest shows on television this spring. This will be season 11--amazing!"
Joining Trump in the boardroom will once again be Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., who will be periodically joined by their younger bro Eric Trump, and longtime advisor George Ross. The season kicks off March 6.
