Celebrity Apprentice

Poker players. TV personalities. Recording artists. Athletes. What do they all have in common? They all want to learn from . Or, they at least want to give that appearance while they collect a paycheck from NBC.

Reality TV has now become much more a medium for quasi- and has-been celebs, rather than an unscripted jaunt where ordinary folks get their chance to shine. But what the hell? Donald Trump is always fun, so why not another season of The Celebrity Apprentice? At this point, NBC’s willing to try anything.

So who makes up the star-studded cast? Mother-daughter team Joan and will join Tionne Watkins (T-Boz of TLC), Brande Roderick (Baywatch), reality TV vet Khloe Kardashian, Annie Duke (reigning poker queen), Natalie Gulbis (pro golfer) and Claudia Jordan (Deal or No Deal winner) to make up the female team.

OmarosaAs reported previously, reality TV starlet Omarosa had a verbal confrontation with FOX talk show host Wendy Williams. After the on-screen blow up (in which the two women traded barbs about each other’s appearance and managed to fire insults almost with every breath), Williams commented to reporters that Omarosa is “pathetic” and “delusional.”

has now made her own choice statements to the press. “I stand by everything I said,” said she, expressing no regret over the argument she participated in during daytime TV.

“She’s a phony,” the former attention-getter said of Wendy Williams. “As long as she continues to be a fake and a phony, she won’t be successful.”

MONDAY (3/24)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  The overly-promoted Britney Spears cameo finally airs tonight.  Let’s just be happy the show is only 30-minutes long.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Nicole Scherzinger gives the girls tips on vocal expression.  Sadly, advice on releasing solo albums is not something she can dish out.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  New episode.  “A bride is murdered at her wedding.  The investigation takes the CSIs to a strip club where the bachelor party took place.”  Strip club? This would be the perfect time for another Elizabeth Berkley appearance.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season premiere.  I wonder if LC wore any of her own designs in Paris.  Doubt it.

MONDAY (3/3)
  • The Royal Family (ABC, 8pm):  hosts a special that documents a year in the lives of the British royal family.  Wow - they’re letting people get to know them better?  That’s such a Diana move.
  • Terminator:  The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm):  “In the two-hour finale, John and Derek are at odds over whether Cameron can be trusted.”  Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure out whether I’ll miss the show.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Marty gets Josh an interview with the president of Paramount.”  At least one of them will have a job when the show’s cancelled.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  “Matthew goes to therapy to discuss intimacy issues and learns he is too dependent on his sister.”  Did anyone else shudder when they read that sentence?

Maybe last night’s episode was a bit too confusing?  Whatever the reason, Lost is returning to old ways and starting to see declining numbers.  (Not that it would have been able to stop FOX anyway.)

MONDAY (2/25)
  • A Raisin in the Sun (ABC, 8pm):  and the rest of his Broadway cast bring the play to the small screen.  I’m sorry - I believe his theater name is Sean Combs.
  • The Moment of Truth (FOX, 8pm):  Special night.  Apparently this episode is so controversial, the producers debated airing it.  Then they realized what network they were on and just went with it.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Hope makes some new friends so she won’t be alone on Friday nights.” Their names?  Jack and Daniels.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  “The women receive a surprise visit from JC Chasez.”  They, too, are wondering why he doesn’t have anything better to do.
