"The Apprentice" to Hire Celebrities

(AP Photo/HO/NBC/Virginia Sherwood)

The Slug just gagged on our Trump Steak and fell out of our Trump Chair. NBC announced over at the Television Critics Association press tour — no, we're not members 'cause they wouldn't let us in — that not only is "The Apprentice" not fired, but the reality competition is coming back with a mid-season celebrity edition (and the network would love to have Rosie O'Donnell participate). Instead of working for The Donald, the celebrity "Apprentice" will win cash for their favoritest charity. Then, may we dare to ask, what is the point of a 15-week job interview? We'll watch D-listers dance or ice skate, but we have zero interest in watching them create marketing campaigns or bicker in a boardroom.
