Yelling, bickering, rejoicing and defeat are all Celebrity Apprentice mainstays, but show judge Ivanka Trump said this season's cast, the show's largest yet, has brought an unexpected element — tears.
“They're very emotional. It's kind of amazing,” Ivanka said of the cast, at the Crystal Light Mocktails launch party at the Trump SoHo in New York City, which Donald's daughter helped host. Ivanka cited Arsenio Hall’s well up when playing for his charity. She also expressed shock at seeing Lisa Lampanelli, comedy’s Queen of Mean, show tears on occasion. “It shows how seriously people take the game. I never would have thought she was a crier.”
Ivanka also listed some of her favorite cast members and biggest surprises, including Paul Teutul, Clay Aiken, Dayana Mendoza and Lisa, before adding “I'm not saying the one that makes it!” Hmm, does that mean we can rule out all the above names as potential winners? The Celebrity Apprentice continues its fifth season on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on NBC.
