This morning on the Today show, NBC officially announced the new Celebrity Apprentice cast that will invade our television sets in early 2015. The network also sent us an exclusive photo of the new cast, because nobody — and I mean nobody — goes into overkill obsess mode over this show more than we do. And when I say we, I guess I kind of mean me. But “we” sounds slightly less pathetic so let’s just stick with that. READ FULL STORY

You better not cross Marilu Henner. Because that woman remembers EVERYTHING! No, seriously, she does. The former Taxi star possesses some sort of super memory power worthy of X-Men mutant status. So we put her special powers to the test when she dropped by the InsideTV Podcast studio to tell us about her All-Star Celebrity Apprentice experience.
Why was Marilu assaulting people at Universal Studios by yelling out what day of the week they were born on? What’s this about Celebrity Apprentice pimp daddy Farouk Shami trying to fly her down to Houston? What are some things we didn’t see because they never made it onto the show? And most importantly, if Marilu has some sort of superhuman memory, why does she not remember meeting me?!? It’s a fun, freewheeling conversation that also somehow manages to include Tony Danza and a orangutan. To listen in, just click on the audio player below.
But that’s not all. First up, blindsided Brenda Lowe calls in to talk about the “painful eye-opener” of being voted out by her friend Dawn on the last episode of Survivor: Caramoan. Turns out she has refused to communicate with the woman who blindsided her since they returned from the game last June. What will happen when they share the stage at tonight’s reunion? Brenda tells us how she plans to approach the awkward situation. Looking for the perfect way to pre-game for tonight’s finale? Then have a listen! READ FULL STORY
The premiere of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice is only two days away, but you can get your first taste of the season right here and right now. In the exclusive sneak peek video from the premiere below, the franchise’s most notorious villain (and camera hog) Omarosa has her sights set on a new target — season 3 champ Bret Michaels. “Bret better watch his back,” she tells teammate Claudia Jordan. “I’m coming for him. It would be a personal moment of privilege to take out the only winner in the game.”
But the most bizarre part of the clip is Jordan’s impressed reaction to Omarosa’s clearly designed play for extra air-time. “Nobody plays the game better than her so far,” says the former Deal or No Deal briefcase holder. Really? Nobody? Because I’m pretty sure Omarosa lost on this show. Twice. So far.
In any event, it’s the perfect tease to get you primed and ready for more absurd antics from both delightful and demented D-listers. Click on the video below and enjoy. And for more All-Star Celebrity Apprentice news and views, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY
Filming commences today on All-Star Celebrity Apprentice as Donald Trump’s reality show brings back contestants from the first five celebrity seasons of the program. The cast is a curious one, missing some seemingly obvious choices like Annie Duke and Aubrey O’Day while including a few head-scratchers (Claudia Jordan? Does anyone even know who she is?). What’s also interesting is that no famous Celebrity Apprentice feuds — Omarosa versus Piers Morgan, Annie Duke versus Joan and Melissa Rivers, Lisa Lampanelli versus Dayana Mendoza — will be rekindled as none of the selected players have any past bad blood with anyone else.
I took a double-decker bus ride with Donald Trump and most of the new cast (La Toya Jackson and Omarosa were MIA) around Manhattan (some pictures of which you can see here) to take the temperature of the new crew. In terms of how they will actually do on the show, it seems like you can separate this cast into three groups: the frontrunners, the sleepers, and those that don’t stand a chance in hell of winning. Who falls into which category? Here’s my take: READ FULL STORY
'Celebrity Apprentice': Joan Rivers, Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall and John Rich to return as advisors -- EXCLUSIVE
Get ready, New York because the circus is coming back to town. The next season of Celebrity Apprentice will commence filming soon and it will indeed be an All-Stars edition filled with returning players who were just too crazy to keep away. And we can exclusively reveal that former winners Piers Morgan. Joan Rivers, John Rich, and Arsenio Hall will all be returning — but not as contestants. Instead, the four Celebrity Apprentice champs will show up alongside Donald Trump in the Boardroom at some point as advisors. (Don’t worry, Trump offspring Ivanka, Don Jr., and Eric aren’t going anywhere. They’ll still be around as well to nod approvingly at everything their father says. You were worried, right?)

'Celebrity Apprentice': Arsenio Hall talks about Trump's verdict, being reunited with Aubrey O'Day, and fending off angry Claymates
Arsenio Hall and Clay Aiken entered the Celebrity Apprentice finale on Sunday night as BFFs. But only one would exit a champion. When all was said and done, a cacophony of woofing enveloped America as dog pounds from coast to coast erupted in chants and cheers upon the naming of Arsenio Hall as the new Celebrity Apprentice. What was his key to victory? What happened with Aubrey O’Day at the finale? How does he feel about now incurring the eternal wrath of angry Claymates? And what are his post-Apprentice plans? We talked with the winner on Monday morning to get the full scoop.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It seems congratulations are in order.
ARSENIO HALL: What an exciting feeling! And I know everybody thinks orgasm trumps everything, but nothing trumps this!
Have you slept at all?
Yeah. You know what, I figured part of my first duty as Celebrity Apprentice was to not go out and get drunk, and wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to show him that he made the right choice. The worst thing I could do would be to wake up in the back of Scores. READ FULL STORY
'Celebrity Apprentice': Get ready for my favorite picture ever and a truly bizarre finale entrance by Donald Trump -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO
I have to apologize. I would have posted this sooner, but I was incapacitated for a good half hour due to excessive laughter brought on by the sight of the following photo. I can’t really explain why I find it so funny, but it just is. Well, take a look for yourself and then we can discuss… READ FULL STORY
He’s not exactly Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire, but Lou Ferrigno does his best dance with a mop in Sunday’s episode of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. The men’s team is tasked with filming a viral video for the O-Cedar Pro-Mist Mop, and of course, there will ultimately be tension and hurt feelings. But before all that, there will be dancing, and despite the Hulk’s promises, I think you’d have to agree the mop mopped the floor with him. READ FULL STORY
We already know they have beauty and grace, but let’s hope this year’s Miss USA contestants also tout a killer sense of humor and a wicked sense of style: Bravo’s Andy Cohen and E!’s Giuliana Rancic will return as co-hosts of this year’s Miss USA competition. “Not only will we have the hottest show on the strip the night of June 3, but we are excited to welcome back Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic as hosts,” said Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization. “Andy and Giuliana’s charisma and energy are a great fit for us, and it was obvious they had a lot of fun together at Miss USA last year. We are happy to have them back.” READ FULL STORY
