Kate Gosselin is on board for the latest round of Celebrity Apprentice. But you already knew that.
Kate Gosselin has been talking about her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Apprentice 7 way ahead of Donald Trump’s official announcement. The reality TV mom will have to square off against — and cooperate with — the likes of two “real housewives”: Brandi Glanville from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Kenya Moore from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
While these ladies are under close watch for the possibility of drama they may bring to the proceedings, they also have to contend with a few heavy-hitters who could dust them where it counts: business and contacts.
Geraldo Rivera is in the lineup. With his years of media work and contacts, Rivera could be a formidable opponent.
There are a few Dancing with the Stars alumni among the cast this time around. In addition to Gosselin herself, who only lasted five rounds on DWTS, there is Ian Ziering, who made it to the semi-finals in Season Four. But there is also Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, who won the mirrorball trophy in Season Eight.
Gosselin recognizes that she was out of her element in DWTS, but thinks she can do better this time around.
“I’m really excited to sort of take on a competition that I have a chance of doing well at, versus others I’ve done,” she told US Magazine last month. “I feel really in my element taking on something like this.”
Gosselin says she is better-suited to this competition due to her personality.
“I have a business-running personality,” she said. “I work for myself. I’m the secretary, the personal assistant, the president, the accountant, and I run my ship at home as efficiently as possible.”
Gosselin, Johnson, Rivera and the others will be joined by Keshia Knight Pulliam from The Cosby Show, comedian Gilbert Gottfried, Lezza Gibbons, Kevin Jonas, Vivica A. Fox and Terrell Owens.
A couple of episodes will feature appearances by the now-deceased Joan Rivers as an advisor to Donald Trump.
