A picture showing some of the cast of season 3’s The Celebrity Apprentice has leaked online. Though not all of the cast-mates are shown in the new image, some rumored celebrities can be confirmed as NBC was caught filming a sequence on West 15th Street in New York City’s Meatpacking District on October 14th.
The standout from the pic is that the shamed former governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, will indeed participate in Donald Trump’s reality show. Joining him will be 80’s metal rocker Bret Michaels, Curtis Stone (Australian chef), Bill Goldberg (aka professional wrestler Goldberg), Summer Sanders (retired Olympic gold medalist in swimming), Carol Leifer (comedienne), Sharon Osbourne (TV personality and wife to rocker Ozzie Osbourne) and Daryl Strawberry (former MLB all-star).
According to the NY Post, ’80s icon Cyndi Lauper is also reportedly in the cast but missed the photo shoot due to her personal loss of Lou Albano who died early that day. Also included in the cast are Holly Robinson (21 Jump Street) and WWE Diva Maria Kanellis.
Ivanka Trump recently appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly where she announced that production on The Celebrity Apprentice will begin sometime this month. “It’s obviously so important to have the right people, and this year we feel so good about the group we’ve put together,” the model/executive said. “They’ll make [season 2 contestant] Joan [Rivers] look calm.”
Only 12 celebrities have been confirmed for the NBC show. The cast usually goes beyond that and talk show hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Jimmy Fallon are rumored to participate though it’s unlikely due to their existing responsibilities.
Democrat Rod Blagojevich was indicted on April 1st on federal corruption charges for attempting to sell the Illinois Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama. Blagojevich was also recorded attempting to “shake down” a hospital and advocating the termination of editorial writers for the Chicago Tribune. He was denied a request to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and his wife Patti later stepped in to compete on the reality show. Prior to the release of the picture, NBC was asked about Blagojevich’s participation. The network responded with: “NBC doesn’t comment on casting until there’s an official announcement to be made.”
That official announcement is expected to be made soon.
