NBC announced the cast of the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.
Joining the cast are Shawn Johnson, Leeza Gibbons, Lorenzo Lamas, Kevin Jonas, Jamie Anderson, Johnny Damon, Vivica A. Fox, Geraldo Rivera, Kate Gosselin, Ian Ziering, Terrell Owens, Gilbert Gottfried, Sig Hansen, Brandi Glanville, Keisha Knight Pulliam, and Kenya Moore.
Something tells me that we are in for a crazy ride with this cast, especially with the divas Vivica A. Fox and Kenya Moore. If you are addicted to Twitter and Instagram, like myself, then you know in the past Fox and Moore have gone toe-to-toe via social media. Hurling multiple insults, shade, and even throwing accusations of stealing personal property during the filming of the show! I can only imagine what juicy drama will occur between those two.
Reportedly Celebrity Apprentice will show footage of Joan Rivers, which was filmed before her passing. Rivers will appear as a judge, sitting in for Ivanka Trump, in two episodes. Donald Trump stated that the decision to show the footage was a difficult one and was in no way done in malice, disrespect, or for ratings. “Physically she was great, but she had an amazing mental strength. I saw her a few days before she passed away, and I want to tell you, I said, ‘She’s going to live forever.’ You looked at her — she was so strong and so vibrant. She was fantastic!” he said. “We decided, in memoriam, we’re going do something and honor her during those two shows.”
The new season of “Celebrity Apprentice” airs January 4 on NBC.
