Former Apprentice Winner, E! Newser Tie the Knot

Bill Rancic and Giuliana DePandiIt’s the wedding of the year! Well, maybe not so much… but it’s an interesting television union, nonetheless. Bill Rancic, who won the very first season of The Apprentice (remember that? when it was good?) and E! News co-anchor Giuliana DePandi got hitched over the weekend. The nuptials were held in Italy in a Catholic ceremony that was conducted in English and Italian. Rancic’s priest from Chicago was even on hand to conduct the ceremony. While Chelsea Handler of E!‘s Chelsea Lately was one of the 180 guests, there were no Ryan Seacrest sightings (maybe he was too busy working one of his many jobs?)... and Donald Trump, although invited, was not present. The couple met when DePandi interviewed Rancic in 2004, but didn’t start dating until 2006. His proposal in December was typical—if you consider being asked in a helicopter ride over Chicago typical. Since both are used to life in front of the cameras, naturally they captured the details of their wedding in a show for the Style Network, called Marry Me in Capri. The show airs October 23rd. The honeymoon is on hold because DePandi has to get back to work—covering the Emmys, and Rancic is set to host iVillage’s “In the Loop.”

Trump’s Celebrity Stable

Donald TrumpThough NBC canceled Donald Trump’s Apprentice, you just can’t keep the Donald down. Here’s what happened: NBC, who is failing miserably in the ratings department, canceled the Apprentice. Evidently, they realized the small ratings they were getting from the reality show was reason enough to stick – so they cancelled the cancellation. This time, Trump’s idea is to use celebrities. Recently, Trump told the New York Post that he’s in negotiations with Britney Spears. Kimora Lee Simmons, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, and George Foreman are already part of the reality cast. Trump also said that Paris Hilton wants to be involved, but he doesn’t know if they’re going to add her to the cast or not.

The Donald Calls It Quits

Donald Trump Self-made businessman and New York celebrity has pulled his most surprising stunt of all: he’s fired himself from The Apprentice. Well, sort of.
