My son who has an encyclopedic knowledge of modern American culture tells me this is the second season, but I’m that much behind.
The reason I know about this one is that I bought an US Weekly at the supermarket because I wanted to find out if octo mom had breast implants and cosmetic surgery while on public assistance. Since the checkout line moved fast, I had to buy the magazine before I could find out. (US is pretty sure she did.) As a California taxpayer I thought that I had a right to know since there is a possibility that I paid for them.
On the inside of the cover is a 2 page spread promoting “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Picture it…Donald Trump and his henchmen…sixteen celebrities (some I have even heard of) vying for the position of Trump’s apprentice.
The egos, the backbiting, the scheming, the humiliation, the dog fights, the cat fights…. It has the trappings of being the best guilty pleasure of all time.
Now here’s the problem: I have a conflict. My heart belongs to Keiffer Sutherland and “24,” saving the country one explosion at a time. I don’t TIVO and my VCR is inoperable.
Remember last summer when I watched “America’s Greatest Dog” every week so you didn’t have to? It’s payback time. I hope someone will post what happened on Tuesdays. Maybe even live blog it. You won’t have to search for an idea for a Tuesday post for the duration of the show.
Let me tempt you with the all-star cast: Jesse James, Dennis Rodman, Andrew Dice Clay, Joan Rivers, Herschel Walker, Khloe Kardashian, Tionne Watkins, Natalie Gulbis, Tom Green, Claudia Jordan, Clint Black, Brande Roderick, Brian McKnight, Melissa Rivers, Scott Hamilton, Annie Duke.
Surprisingly I have heard of seven of them and have even interviewed one.
If you think this show is a ridiculous idea and you need to exercise your inner snarkiness, you are probably perfect for the job.
