nene leakes 320 'The Celebrity Apprentice' cast leaked: LaToya Jackson, NeNe Leakes, Lil JonEvery year we tell ourselves that we’re not going to get sucked into “The Celebrity Apprentice,” and then we inevitably find ourselves parked on our couches, insisting that Bret Michaels is the greatest business mind of his generation.

According to Las Vegas Weekly, the upcoming “Celebrity Apprentice” contestants met this weekend in Vegas for a friendly get-to-know-you cocktail party before the claws come out. We’ve got the full list of attendees, and it seems Donald Trump has outdone himself this time.

Previously unannounced contestants include “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” NeNe Leakes, founder of the Twisted Hearts Foundation that addresses domestic violence against women. Country artist John Rich, best known for his group Big & Rich, has also joined the team, along with the always unpredictable actor Gary Busey.

Other rumored contestants were also in attendance. We’ve got our musicians and singers (and “singers”), including Mark McGrath, LaToya Jackson, Dionne Warwick, Meat Loaf, and Lil Jon. Jose Canseco is the only athlete on the list, while supermodel Niki Taylor and Playboy Playmate Hope Dworaczyk can battle it out for hottest boardroom babe. We can also look forward to former teen idol David Cassidy, TV personalities Lisa Rinna and Star Jones, actress Marlee Matlin, and the first-ever winner of “Survivor,” Richard Hatch.

What do you think of the cast, Zappers? Will you be tuning in?
