While it kills me to give Donald Trump the recognition he wants (and you know he wants it bad) I do have to devote some time to the new cast of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice because it has a shitload of totally random celebrities, pretty good ones to boot, and it’s all for charity anyway. Plus: George Takei, man. George fucking Takei. Access Hollywood reports:
Mob boss widow Victoria Gotti, singer Clay Aiken and IndyCar champ Michael Andretti are on tap for the next edition of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. Host Donald Trump announced the new batch of contenders on Wednesday’s Today show. They also include Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Teresa Guidice, comedian Lisa Lampanelli, former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, rock star Dee Snider and American Chopper star Paul Teutul Sr. Other contenders include radio host Adam Carolla, comedian Arsenio Hall, singer-actress Aubrey O’Day and magician Penn Jillette. Rounding out the rivals are model Cheryl Tiegs, singer Debbie Gibson, Star Trek star George Takei, singer Tia Carrere, actress-model Patricia Velasquez and “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno.
Trump may be a huge attention whore, but goddammit, I cannot resist the pull of Takei. He can say “oooooh my” to me any day. And also Lisa Lampanelli is in the cast, so at least there are two funny people in the cast, and it’s nice to see them have Teresa Guidice as the token crazy bitch who will probably end up stabbing someone. Probably Paul Teutul Sr.‘s moustache.
