Meat Loaf and La Toya set for US Celebrity Apprentice

Singers Meat Loaf and La Toya Jackson are among the stars vying to become Donald Trump's latest Celebrity Apprentice.

Contenders for the US charity version of the show, hosted by the business tycoon, also include former teen idol David Cassidy and actor Gary Busey.

Deaf Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin and singer Dionne Warwick have also signed up to appear.

Poison singer Bret Michaels won the show last year.

Retired baseball player Jose Canseco and US TV personality Star Jones will be others hoping to hear "You're Hired!" while raising money for their chosen charity.

So will NeNe Leakes and Richard Hatch, from reality shows Survivor and The Real Housewives of Atlanta respectively.

Soap actress Lisa Rinna, supermodel Niki Taylor, rapper Lil Jon, country singer John Rich and model Hope Dworaczyk complete the line-up.

Previous winners of the show include comedienne Joan Rivers and former Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan.

The show - which sees its participants compete in business-oriented tasks - begins on 6 March on US network NBC.

Seeing artists take part in such shows is kind of sad.

Well I don't know. I can understand a bit of fun here and there and after all it's for charity so good on them.
I just hate the American Apprentice, it's all over the place and you don't really get a feel for what's going on with how they edit the show I think. It's so awful in comparison to the UK version in fact. On top of that there is simply no comparison to the whit and humour and intelligence of Alan Sugar. For me Donald Trump is impossible to enjoy watching. On a different level completely.

Meat Loaf in Alan Sugar's boardroom, now that is something I would like to see.

Doubt we'll see that, I see to remember Lord Sugar saying he wouldn't do Celebrity Apprentice again.

That almost sounds like an excuse. There are better ways to do something for charity, in my opinion.

Quite the opposite. I have heard a lot of big time celebs try to get on shows like this and are not chosen.

All I see are lists of people that once were successful. Why pick them over the 'Big Time' celebs? *Unless Gary Busey, LaToya etc. are still 'big time' celebs in your eyes. Hell even Meat isn't a Big Time celeb. He might be the most succesfull present celeb but the Big Times are from the past. The others don't even come close...

It's like Celebrity Big Brother and Celebrity... whatever. Desperate names from the past trying to get in the spotlight one more time. Quite sad....

Yeah LaToya.... The only thing I remember her being famous for was doing Playboy and some stripping in Vegas. Obviously she's too old for that now.

I never said she was a positive influence, but she does have an impressive IMDB listing under her belt:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0517820/

She is still considered A/B List Hollywood.

Disappointing news considering the point Meat made right here of saying that he wouldn't do reality TV. Still, its his life. At least its for charity I guess. Can't say it pleases me as a fan though.

i'll look at it as potential good marketing... it gets meat back in the media, back in the public domain, back interested??

he's a recent album out, and a new album in the making (alledgedly)

and if its for charity excellent!!! (though i imagine thats never the primary reason people appear on these shows)

Do you seriously think he'll get more recognition as a singer / actor because of his appearance on that show?

I'd rather see people WORK TOGETHER for charity than AGAINST EACH OTHER on a show where this is part of the concept:

Quote:
As with the previous seasons, the winning celebrity team will have the privilege of watching the losing team squirm under the scrutiny of Donald Trump and his advisors from the comfort of their own war room.
