Donald Trump unveils cast of ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice’

First there was “The Apprentice,” then the more exclusive “Celebrity Apprentice.” Now, Donald Trump has announced the even more exclusive, and redundantly named, “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.” Next season, we may even get “V.I.P. All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.”

The lineup for the new season will feature fan favorites from previous seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice,” including country star Trace Adkins, actor Stephen Baldwin, actor and reality star Gary Busey, magician Penn Jillette, rapper Lil Jon, Poison frontman Bret Michaels, NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, actress Marilu Henner, singer La Toya Jackson, actress Claudia Jordan, the first big star of “The Apprentice” Omarosa, actress Lisa Rinna and Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick.

Though Omarosa was seen as a villain during her first appearance on “The Apprentice,” she recently experienced great tragedy when her longtime boyfriend, actor Michael Clarke Duncan, died of a heart attack. How that experience will affect her behavior on the show, or if it will even be addressed, remains to be seen.


Other previous “Celebrity Apprentice” winners, including Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, John Rich and Arsenio Hall are returning as advisors.

In a statement, the ever-modest Trump crowed, “It’s going to be another amazing season!”
