Porsha Williams & Tyra Banks To Star In The ‘Celebrity Apprentice 2016’

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2016 by David

Donald Trump’s bid for the White House saw him forced to forfeit his starring role on NBC’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’

Bad news for those who enjoyed his run on the business-based competition? Yes.

However, they needn’t fret. For, the show has called on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ star Porsha Williams and entertainment mogul Tyra Banks to ensure its forthcoming season fares just as well…if not better.

Details below…

The series began as a competition in which aspiring CEOs competed in challenges every week to win an enviable position in Trump’s ever-swelling empire, and spawned the television careers of former contestants Bethenny Frankel and Omarosa Manigault.

Things changed when it morphed into the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ in which celebrities competed against each other to raise money and awareness for charities of their choosing.

Trump has now been replaced by the actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and has learned that Banks (who recently welcomed the birth of her first baby) will serve as one his advisors as he decides which celebrities will be given the boot after each challenge.

The cast includes:

Laila Ali — Boxer and daughter of Muhammad Ali

Brooke Burke-Charvet — Former “Baywatch” actress

Eric Dickerson — Pro Football Hall of Fame running back

Boy George — Culture Club singer

Matt Iseman — “American Ninja Warrior” host

Carrie Keagan — Actress and talk show host

Carson Kressley — “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”

Lisa Leslie — Former WNBA player with the Los Angeles Sparks

Jon Lovitz — Actor best known for “Saturday Night Live”

Vince Neil — Motley Crue frontman

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — “Jersey Shore”

Kyle Richards — “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”

Chael Sonnen — former UFC standout and MMA fighter

Porsha Williams — “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”

Ricky Williams — Former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL star

Carnie Wilson — Wilson Phillips singer and talk show host

Catch ‘Apprentice’ when it airs on NBC this September.

    Oh Tyra! When you are asked to appear on Celebrity apprentice that means you are a has been! Tyra is doing the most of late. Just focus on Top Model and enjoy your newborn already! Leave the Donald Trump circus to the Real housewives of Decatur like Porsha

      Screaming at your comment ???

        I am so done with Tyra. Her career is like a pan of hard scrambled eggs!

    • DD January 29, 2016

      I wouldn’t be so quick to judge Tyra. First, she’s a multi-millionaire who helped invent and make reality tv what it is, second, she’s a consultant which means she’s not competing, third, they probably paid her a *beep* ton of money, and lastly, she’s keeping her name out there. This season will be a hit just out of the curiosity factor. Now, dammit, you got me defending Tyra Banks.

    Clearly you guys didn’t read. She is an advisor with Jessica Alba. They aren’t competing

    • RASHAD January 29, 2016

      I read it & the fact she is even attached to this show is a no no!

    Wendy Williams just said that Tyra would make a great advisor on the show!

  5. @JanetCIARA_ January 29, 2016

    I wasn’t gonna watch because Donald wasn’t gonna be in his own show (He made it ?) but now I’m definitely tuning in, they compensated the loss of Donald with this new cast, I wonder who else will be signing on for this season!!!

  6. MUSICHEAD January 29, 2016

    I would have preferred to see Tyra Banks replace Trump. Or maybe even Puffy, Russell Simmons or Jay Z.
