'Celeb Apprentice': Let's Cast It!
I don't know how much of a ''boy'' he still is, but I do know that the androgynous Culture Club frontman would be a hilarious addition to the CA franchise. His ensembles alone would provide entertainment enough. Throw in Boy George trying to sell pizza or suntan lotion and you have comedy at your fingertips just waiting to be filmed.
As beautiful as she is ruthless, Robin Givens brings the entire package. The former Mrs. Mike Tyson would no doubt enrage everyone within 25 feet of her, but be savvy enough to keep from getting fired. For a while, at least.
What a country! The Russian comedian and one-joke wonder from the '80s must have some business savvy. How else to explain him outlasting the Cold War and still running a successful entertainment show in Branson, Mo.? Time to bring the bearded wonder back to New York and see if he's as good with celebrating the green stuff (money) as he is the red, white, and blue.
What was that awful movie she made with Billy Baldwin? Fair Game? Damn, that sucked. But Trump likes to have former supermodels on his show, and double C certainly fits the bill. I think she'd do pretty well on it, too. (Not that that matters in the least.)
Trump already had great success with Vincent Pastore back in season 1, so it's time to mine the Sopranos well again, and I can tell you from my time on the Sopranos set that Sirico is as big a character off screen as he is on. There would be no shortage of magic moments with this guy. C'mon, tell me you're not already on the floor at the mere thought of Boy George and Paulie Walnuts working side by side together. Brilliant!
Liza is perfect for this show because she's very famous and very nutty. Who's to say she wouldn't start singing at her fellow players for no reason whatsoever and calling everyone ''darling'' because she's too lazy to learn all their names? CA loves having an elder stateswoman, and I love Liza Minnelli filling that role.
How awesome would it be to get a Super Bowl-winning quarterback on The Celebrity Apprentice? And not just any Super Bowl-winning quarterback, but a rapping Super Bowl-winning quarterback! Need I refresh your memory as to some of the dope rhymes Jim McMahon dropped on ''The Super Bowl Shuffle''? ''I'm the punky QB, known as McMahon/When I hit the turf, I've got no plan/I just throw my body all over the field/I can't dance, but I can throw the pill.'' McMahon was a total nutjob who mooned helicopters and thumbed his nose at Pete Rozelle and the NFL establishment. He'd be perfect here.
Speaking of white rappers, why not cool things down with a little Vanilla Ice? We've seen that this guy has anger issues (like when he destroyed the master tape of the ''Ice Ice Baby'' video with a baseball bat during a VH1 special), and he's talked openly of having ADD. In short, he is the perfect Celebrity Apprentice candidate.
A former Baywatch beauty fallen on hard times, Bleeth could be a wild card here. Honestly, I'm just curious as to what she looks like and is up to these days, and if her being cast on Celebrity Apprentice will help me find out more, then let's do this thing.
The ''Dark Shadows'' crooner would be a dream contestant on the show. He may look ghoulish with his freaky makeup, but did you know that the prince of darkness is actually a golf nut? And do you know how many business deals are struck on the golf course? Sign this guy up!
First off, anyone who goes by a single name should gain automatic and immediate entrance onto a Celebrity Apprentice season. Tiffany hits a lot of sweet spots for this show in that she is an '80s teen steam icon, but also has posed nude with her big fake breasts in the pages of Playboy — always a big plus in the Donald's book.
Like Tiffany, she goes by one name, so she's automatically in. I've always had a soft spot for this sassy little scamp ever since her 227 days. I'm fairly certain Trump has no idea who she even is — can't picture him as a big 227 watcher — which would make her inclusion all the more hilarious.
First off, he needs to grow the McEnfro back. Let?s just start there. But hearing tennis' former bad boy yelling, ''ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?'' at confused teammates would be a full-on ace.
As far as Real Housewives contestants go, NeNe would be hard to beat. But after Teresa Giudice, maybe the time is right for Danielle Staub, who inspired that flipped table and hair pulling. Just imagine Danielle and Robin Givens in a room together. Exactly.
His Survivor strategy would play perfect here — sabotaging his own team members so that when they got to the Boardroom he could blame them for mistakes that he, in fact, had engineered. Pure evil genius.
There's almost always a country-music star on The Celebrity Apprentice, but why should guys like Trace Adkins, Clint Black, and John Rich have all the fun? Reba would be a fundraising machine, and with all the other pop culture curiosities, a rock-solid star like Reba would actually give the show a shred of ''celebrity'' legitimacy.
