*NBC today announced the return of “Celebrity Apprentice” on Sunday, Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. with Donald Trump back running the boardroom.
Cast members Vivica A. Fox and Kenya Moore already made news last spring for butting heads while filming in New York. Also set for this season are “The Cosby Show’s” Keshia Knight Pulliam and former NFL star Terrell Owens.
Late comedian Joan Rivers will be among the previous “Celebrity Apprentice” champs who are returning as advisers. (Rivers filmed her segments prior to her death in September.)
Trump’s kids — Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump — will serve as his advisers. The winner of the competition will score a $250,000 donation to his or her designated charity.
After its Sunday, Jan. 4, 9 p.m. premiere, the show will move into its regular Monday 8 p.m. timeslot, with back-to-back one-hour installments each week — which will mean two boardroom showdowns and multiple firings.
Rounding out the cast are two-time World Series champion Johnny Damon; comedian Gilbert Gottfried; Sig Hansen, the star of “Deadliest Catch”; singer Kevin Jonas; actor Lorenzo Lamas; talk show host Geraldo Rivera; “Sharknado’s” Ian Ziering; Gold Medal Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson; TV host Leeza Gibbons; reality star Brandi Glanville; reality star Kate Gosselin and gold medal Olympian Shawn Johnson.
