Celebrity Apprentice 2011

A new season of Celebrity Apprentice begins this weekend, and it looks crazier than ever.  Donald Trump should forget about regular editions of the show with average no-name casts and simply stick to the celebrity versions.  Previous celeb winners have included Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, and Bret Michaels.  Who will take the prize for charity (and the bragging rights) this time around?
