Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

The New Cast of The Celebrity Apprentice is Revealed!

Another season of celebrity firings is coming! Donald Trump confirmed the cast of the seventh season of  The Celebrity Apprentice on the Today show!

The cast actually had me a little excited! It includes  Kate Plus 8’s Kate Gosselin, The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore, as well as The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsBrandi Glanville, so the drama will definitely be heavy! according to Us Weekly, the other competitors are  Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, World Series-winning baseball player Johnny Damon, actress Vivica A. Fox, TV and radio host Leeza Gibbons, comedian Gilbert Gottfried, Deadliest Catch star Sig Hansen, the Jonas Brothers’ Kevin Jonas, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, soap star Lorenzo Lamas, famed NFL player Terrell Owens, The Cosby Show vet Keshia Knight Pulliam, reporter and television personality Geraldo Rivera, and Sharknado actor and Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Ian Ziering.

“This season of The Celebrity Apprentice is on point to be the best yet,” Donald said in a release. “With 16 extraordinary contestants bringing their energy to the boardroom, it is sure to be a hit, as always.” The late Joan Rivers will also make an appearance in the boardroom. She filmed two episodes of the show as an advisor before she passed away in September.

I never watch Celebrity Apprentice to be honest, but with this cast, I might just have to tune in! I especially want to see how the Queen of Twirl, Kenya Moore, fits in. She has her own production company, so she knows a thing or two about business, but she is messy! More drama for us!

Celebrity Moms Struggle To Take Off The Weight After Birth Too


Except Gisele Bundchen, of course…who probably nibbled on lettuce and worked out six hours every day until the weight shed.

After popping out a baby it is hard to lose that weight. But can you imagine how hard and stressful it must be for a celebrity mother who needs to get down to where they were in order to get a job on a film or back in that swimsuit for a modeling gig? Well, yeah it would suck. Having an unlimited amount of money for trainers and nannies to care for your little ones make it a whole hell of a lot easier for celebs. Other than for Gisele Bundchen who makes it look so easy, there are some celebrity mothers out there who found it to be a HUGE struggle to get back the bod they once had.

Check out five stars who found it very difficult to take off the baby weight here via our friends at Girls Talkin Smack.

FUN FEATURE: Celebrities Love Bingo?

Trust, it’s not all bat crazy old ladies that enjoy a good old game of bingo from time to time. There are actually celebrities who love bingo. While some celebrities have been spotted at actual bingo clubs, I have a sneaking suspicion that celebrities do enjoy to remain anonymous.

But from what we know is that the UK has quite a few fans of the American 75-ball game.

Some of the most well known celeb bingo players are Robbie Williams, Katie Price, Catherine Zeta Jones, Sharon Osbourne and Kerry Katona.

Sure Robbie Williams loves a good game of 90 ball bingo, which is a very popular UK version of bingo, and he has even been spotted playing in bingo clubs in London! And believe it or not, Katie Price (yes, THE Katie Price), Glenda Gilson and Kerry Katona are all said to have enjoyed a game of bingo online such as the site Binguez.es

Catherine Zeta Jones is also a huge fan of 75-ball bingo in America. In case you didn’t know Zeta Jones is known for her Christmas bingo parties. If you were ever invited over to the Douglas-Zeta-Jones household during the holidays you probably got handed out a fabulously festive Christmas bingo card with a chance to win a bag of homemade goodies.

Are you a big fan of bingo? Have you played online bingo before?

Ricky Gervais to Host Golden Globes Sunday Night

Ricky Gervais is set to host the Golden Globes this Sunday!

Don’t you hate celebrity bashing? Don’t you hate when people talk bad about celebrities?

Why don’t they just let them be?

Kidding, people! Just making sure you were listening!

I don’t know about you, but after missing last year’s Golden Globe Award ceremony, I am making sure that I am not missing it this year. Why? Ricky Gervais.

Just like last year, Ricky Gervais tells Matt Lauer that he won’t back down from his style of hosting the show and does plan on bashing the celebrities we all know and love so much. I’m looking forward to it. In his interview with Matt Lauer, he seems very unapologetic about offending certain celebrities, “If you don’t let yourself be offended, you’re not offended.”

Suddenly, I’m becoming very glad that I’m not a celebrity. Aren’t you?

So, while we all sit back at home and enjoy the celebrity bash (and bashing), we can all take comfort in the fact that what we wear on the red carpet, what we weigh, and what our private lives are like won’t be scrutinized and made fun of for the whole world to see.

But, somehow I take great comfort in the lack of editing and scripting of what Ricky Gervais will bring to the show. Although there were rumors of Ricky having to submit a script pre-award show, Ricky Gervais warned via Twitter that the show, “it’s live! Ha!”

And while the celebrities squirm in their seats, the Golden Globes will finally become really, really interesting all over again. Let’s just hope they have him back for more next year.

Golden Globes airs Sunday Night at 8 PM ET.
