Dayana Mendoza
If anything, Celebrity Apprentice has proven that models can be more than just a pretty face - in fact, many of them have strong business acumen. With Donald Trump ousting Dayana Mendoza, putting her in sixth place in a strong field, we decided to take a look at how the models of Celebrity Apprentice did over the years.

Carol Alt (3rd place in season 1) learned firsthand that Donald Trump can be fickle. After wowing interviewers (the second to last task is always an interview with trusted Trump executives), she was highly recommended to take on Trace Adkins in the final. However, Trump l...

Hollywood is a great place and the parties that I’ve had the chance to attend are sometimes the biggest events on the calendar every year. I’ve done a lot of parties in my years on the entertainment beat. If it’s movies, television or video games, events they all know how to throw some of the biggest parties.

I will always say that as long as the event has food and liquor, reporters will sign up to cover the party or the event without a problem! To tell you the truth I’ve done the same and sometimes that’s almost the only reason it’s worth attending some events. Especially...

Last week, Sharon Osbourne and Maria Kanellis told Trump that they hated Chef Curtis Stone because he’s smug and uses an absurd amount of hair gel. Of course, the Donald's next move is to put them on a team together. Finally, there's a payoff to all of the inane boardroom questions about who everyone likes, doesn’t like, wants to marry, bury, fire or whatever.

From Trump’s majestic castle in the clouds, the six remaining celebrities find out that their next task is a design challenge. Each team is charged with refurbishing an apartment and turning it into a living space that would befit a ...

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: Money Changes Everything

Celebrity Apprentice
Donald Trump is back with celebrities, “celebrities," and a disgraced politician for the third installment of "The Celebrity Apprentice." He reminds us that the show is not just about giving has-beens a chance to be on TV; it’s also about raising money for their favorite charities. Of course, philanthropy is best served as a side dish to the drama of reality TV, so Trump will "fire" someone each week.

This year's cast of characters boasts Reality TV man-whore Bret Michaels, Olympian Michael Johnson, Sinbad, someone named Goldberg, Baseball Star Darryl Strawberry, Celeb Chef Curtis Stone, a...

Rod Blagojevich
Another season of The Apprentice, another Celebrity version. While it would be nice for Donald Trump to help out our unemployment numbers by actually hiring someone via the show, he has quite an interesting group of celebrities to deal with this season.

Rod Blagojevich: Included because the producers knew the announcement would make a splash (and it did), don't expect the former Illinois Governor to last very long. Remember, Khloe Kardashian was fired for a DUI arrest last season. Expect Rod to scrape together some cash for charity, then get ousted during a bully pulpit from The Don.
