Boy George and Carson Kressley to compete on new season of “Celebrity Apprentice”
I’m not going to lie.
The only time I watched The Celebrity Apprentice is when Joan Rivers was on it.
But the upcoming season has given me two reasons to watch: Boy George and Carson Kressley.
This show, formerly hosted by Donald Trump, has long needed more gay people. The only previous gay celebs to take part in past seasons have been Clay Aiken and George Takei.
Boy George and Kressley are among the 16 celebrities vying to win $250,000 for the charity of their choice.
Kressley took to Twitter to describe himself as ‘exhausted’ after his first day on the set on Monday.
Since Queer Eye went off the air, he’s kept busy hosting other shows, writing books and designing clothes. He’s also become a successful horse show exhibitor as the owner of Saddlebred Horses.
Boy George, best known as lead vocalist for the pop band Culture Club, recently was seen as a coach on the UK version of The Voice.
The rest of the field includes retired pro boxer Laila Ali, actress-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, retired NFL player Eric Dickerson, actor Matt Iseman, VH1 host Carrie Keagan, retired WNBA player Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil, reality show stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Porsha Williams and Kyle Richards, mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, ESPN analyst Ricky Williams and singer Carnie Wilson.
Whoever loses, they won’t have to be told ‘You’re fired’ by Trump who has been head of the boardroom in previous seasons. The current Republican presidential hopeful has been replaced by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
