By their nature, celebrities are afflicted with a touch more narcissism than the average Joe.
Then, there's this one:
And this one, just back from N. Korea:
NBC has struck ratings paydirt with carnival barker Donald Trump, the tea-totalling elitist who has an opinion on everything, especially when it comes to President Obama and Tarantino revenge fantasy film "Django Unchained."
This Sunday he brings back the best of the best and worst for his long running series that raises money for charity through a series of exhausting team exercises, Machiavellian schemes and backstabbing B-Roll that lets competitors in on the action.
Of course, if you participate in the series, you best have a rolodex of rich as Croesus pals ready to write big checks every time you're up to bat as project manager. Ask Cyndi Lauper about that one.
Anyhow, from NBC:
They’re baaaack! Donald Trump is back for the first-ever “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” where 14 of your favorite contestants will return to the show to compete for a chance to win $250,000 for their charity of choice. Familiar faces such as Bret Michaels, Stephen Baldwin, Marilu Henner, Dennis Rodman, and of course Gary Busey, are just some of the celebrities we will see returning to the show.
