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?)

You will notice one previous Celebrity Apprentice winner whose name is not on that list above — season 3 winner and Tour Bus Thrust enthusiast Bret Michaels. But a source close to the show tells me that the Poison frontman will indeed appear in some other capacity. (With this being an All-Stars season and him not being an advisor, you can make your own deductions.) Excited to see all the winners back? And whom do you want to see in the cast? Hit the message boards and let us know. And for a truly alarming amount of Celebrity Apprentice coverage, you can follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
