Kenya in her Apprentice Hotel Room
This morning my email box was full of two things. More questions for me in the open forum post (which turned into forum where y’all just pelted me with questions rather than the drunken happy hour I imagined…) and links to a story on the Daily Mail about Kenya’s outrageous behavior on Celebrity Apprentice!
Celebrity Apprentice is a show about wealthy A-list celebrities who come together to hold hands and sing Kumbaya and pray that the lord will help all the little people with charitable needs. Everyone loves everyone and they work together in peace and harmony for the children with no legs.
Oh wait, that’s not it at all Celebrity Apprenctice is show put together by Donald Trump where he collects together some D-list TV actors and puts them on teams with people he knows they will hate and forces them to work together for a celebrity cause. Notoriously the men do very well in the beginning as the women focus all of their time attacking each other. As the game progresses, The final player try to balance working with people they do not like to bring down the hopes and dreams of the other team.
After each task Donald calls them into the boardroom and rails on them for being such fucktards. He picks one of the players and screams YOU’RE FIRED! This happens to everyone except the final winner. It’s how the show works. Sometimes Donald even screams YOU’RE FIRED! at two people in the board room telling them the both suck. Some people like Nene Leakes do not get fired because they throw a hissyfit and quit the show because people are not bowing down to her. But most of the time, the process of leaving the show is “getting fired.” Continue reading
Tamaratattles.com has some more tea on Celebrity Apprentice, that I have been trying to put together that will answer all of your questions (well most of them). So click through if you want to know how it all ends. Sort of.
UPDATED: THE FINAL TWO I IDENTIFIED MAY NOT BE ACCURATE! I AM LOOKING INTO A NEW LEAD! Continue reading
It’s been awhile since I have had a moment to put together all the bits and pieces of information I have on the latest Celebrity Apprentice 2014 Spoilers. I’ve had some fun putting together clues from the tweeter feeds or the contestants, and still don’t have every detail (which makes it fun). This is a true spoiler post for the season that will air most likely in December. If you don’t want to be spoiled on many details including who has been fired and who has not, do not read any further. I’m warning you now. There will be no crying later.
I first spoiled the cast here back in March.
Meet the Men’s Team:
Ian Zierling (Beverly Hills 90210), Lorenzo Lamas, Geraldo Rivera, Kevin Jonas, Terrell Owens (Football), Johnny Damon (Baseball), Sig Hansen (Deadliest Catch) Gilbert Gottfried (Comedian)
Meet the Women’s Team:
Keisha Knight Pulliam, Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville, Kate Gosselin, Vivica Fox, Shawn Johnson (Olympic Gymnast), Leeza Gibbons, Jamie Anderson (Olympic Snowboarder)
We began with 16 contestants are we are almost at the end with 6 left. There are a couple of holes in my detective work I hope to fill in later.
P.S. I have been adding and removing things from this format for a few days so some things may be disjointed. I just can’t fiddle with it anymore. Continue reading
You know how Oprah Winfrey always asks, “What do you know for sure?” Well when I go to the Church of Oprah on Sundays I always wonder about that question. WTF DO I know for sure?
Well lately, I FINALLY have an answer. What I know for sure is that Radar Online has no source at all for Celebrity Apprentice. I try not to call out other sites, but Radar Online really likes to steal my stories. And I am about to post some HUGE spoilers I have been working on for weeks and I know that they will appear as an EXCLUSIVE on Radar Online within hours. Continue reading
Yet another public task going on for the gang on Celebrity Apprentice today. The teams tried to sell 150 wedding dresses in three hours this morning and Brandi Glanville seems to have had a little bit of trouble. She was frantically tweeting for everyone who sent in a credit card donation to please “take a screen shot and resend them!” That does not sound good. Continue reading
Weekends are pretty slow blogging days up until Sunday night. But with the RHOA reunion filming last Thursday, the tea keeps coming this weekend. However, it is a beautiful day today and I have been looking forward to finally being able to do some gardening. So I did. I actually overdid. I am way to exhausted to do a whole bunch of detailed blogging on the dribs and drabs of tea I’ve been receiving all day. So you’ll have to settle for the down and dirty version.
We’ll start in Atlanta. Last night was Kandi’s Bachelorette party. It was held after she had a bridal shower earlier in the evening. Kandi, Porsha and Phaedra were all up in the club dancing and partying and having a great time. But they were not the only ones twerking. Phaedra hired (one of her clients?) a chubby little person female stripper to twerk for the ladies! No word on what Phaedra thought of how her lady garden was groomed. But this party is not the one I kept hearing about today. Continue reading
Andy and Kristen Visit Pie Face
Okay, I have been working my EXCLUSIVE sources to death to finally get the CONFIRMED list of who is on Celebrity Apprentice . It wasn’t easy but I have the list. But first, yesterday was the first challenge. The celebs were divided into two teams by gender. Keisha Knight-Pulliam took the role of Project Manager for the women’s team and Geraldo Rivera grabbed the reins for the men’s team. Both teams took over a Pie Face location in NYC to sell pies. The guys choose to sell a low-fat chicken pot pie and a desert pie of some sort. The ladies had two pies as well and sold theirs for $10 and $20. The ladies also advertised a celebrity pie in the face event. Each team sold their pies from 11;30 -2:30 yesterday.
So who won?
This should be an exclusive unless my source got chatty. It’s finally time for the RHOA to film the reunion episode and there is so much potential for disaster! First of all both Kenya and Nene will have to leave their current engagements to fly in to the ATL. This won’t be much of an issue for Nene because she and Tony have already secured rehearsal space here for when Nene has to be in Atlanta. So she is likely already back here. But Kenya is working on Celebrity Apprentice all day today and then flying out tonight and likely flying back right after the reunion. For that reason Andy won’t be able to keep everyone there until the wee hours of the morning like he tends to do. They are going to have to do this down and dirty this time!
So what can we expect? LOTS of drama that is what.

What is shaping up to be an epic season of Celebrity Apprentice due to the casting of not one but two controversial “real housewives,” Kenya Moore and Brandi Glanville, has begun filming y’all. Frankly, I am already worried I am going to have to buy ‘rica that house in Scottsdale, Arizona or whatever it was I promised her in a wine infused frenzy the other night. But before I get to all that, let’s check in with the girls.
Brandi arrived on Wednesday and hit the ground running hitting up Kristen Taekman from RHONY to ensure she shows up to thangs camera ready with a big check from her husband. It’s no surprise she will end up being at one of the first fundraisers. Next, she focused on the important stuff like her hair. Her poor, poor, hair. She rang up snarky stylist, Mark Hasche who arrived in NYC yesterday. I hope he was not the one who did her hair for the reunion when it appeared her goal was to look like Wayland Flowers sex crazed puppet, Madame. These are all good moves, but I take comfort in the fact that she was already tweeting she was overwhelmed on the day she arrived. Last night, she seemed a bit more relaxed and tweeted “It’s on like Donkey Kong!” at 9:30 pm. I wonder if she has adjusted to the early bedtime, early morning call on the east coast situation.

Today’s blog will be guest written by Penn Jillette. Okay not exactly. Penn has a new book out called, Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday there is an excerpt from it over on Salon.com. In the book he talks a bit about his experiences on Celebrity Apprentice. It’s an interesting read. So if you like to read, be warned it is more than six sentences, head on over and check it out. A short excerpt of the …..er…excerpt are behind the jump as well as the like.
In real reality, there would have been hell to pay for screaming epithets at people, but in “TCA” world, there are no repercussions. No one loves anyone on the set enough to say, “Hey listen, man, take a little break and think about this.” No one cares. We’re all trying to save our own sorry asses. Then the next day, Trump says something insane like, “I’m glad you showed some backbone. I like passion.” He means, of course, he likes passion for his little TV show, but it feels like he’s saying the outburst was a good thing. We’ve chosen to make this whackjob, with the cotton candy piss hair and the birther shit, into someone we want to please.
For the whole article, go here.
Donald Trump announced the line-up for the next Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars today. There will be a total of eight men including: Trace Atkins, Stephen Baldwin,Gary Busey, Penn Jillette, Lil Jon, Bret Michaels, Dennis Rodman, Dee Snider. There are six women in the cast: Marilu Henner, La Toya Jackson, Claudia Jordan, Omarosa, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick. This makes it seem like teams will not begin as the men versus the women which I think is a great idea as it will limit the women cannibalizing each other early.
Back in August when Nene Leakes was claiming she was turning down the loud mouth black woman slot because she was too busy, I wondered whether that meant Star Jones was coming back. I certainly didn’t think Omarosa would be available with her finance Michael Clarke Duncan recovering from a heart attack. Unfortunately, Michael Clarke Duncan passed away last month. So Omarosa has agreed to film another season. It’s a bit surprising, but it will probably be good for her to keep busy. I wonder if she will be her usual abrasive self or a more toned down version. It looks like a really great cast! I predict the playmate gets the boot first and then it becomes a cutthroat fight to the finish. I’d like to see Penn Jillete win. What about you?
The first media reports hinting at an All-Stars season of Celebrity Apprentice began in early July. Many names were floated around including past winners Bret Michaels, Trace Atkins, Joan Rivers, Pierce Morgan and interesting characters like Meatloaf, Omarosa, Gene Simmons, Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, and Dennis Rodman. Apparently, with offers now going out and filming time fast approaching Ms. Leakes wanted to put it out there that she wasn’t interested.
According to TVGuide.com, Nene Leakes has turned down an offer to be on Celebrity Apprentice All Stars. In a statement to William Keck, Nene explained why she was not up for another season,
It was hard as hell — a grueling-ass schedule. You work every single day except for Sunday from sunup to sundown. You’re locked into a war room and you have to give up your cell phone, your iPad, your laptop, everything. It’s a tough show. I can’t do it again!
Nene certainly does have a full calendar at the moment with three TV shows filming at once; however, Trump hates a quitter. I have my doubts that even with Nene’s fifteen minutes extending to an hour that Trump would invite Nene back. She broke under the pressure once. I figure Trump would want fill any position that Nene is up for with Omarosa. Unfortunately, depending on when filming starts, Omarosa will likely be unavailable. Omarosa’s man, Michael Clarke Duncan, was out of intensive care yet still in the hospital after a very serious heart attack in July. Omarosa has not left his side. So I guess the sassy black woman role will be filled by Star Jones. I haven’t heard of her being terribly busy lately and Trump loves her. Celebrity Apprentice Allstars is expected to air in February.
What do y’all think? Did Trump even ask Nene or is Nene getting it out there before the offers come out to save face?
