'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Star Nene Leakes Joining Cast of 'Celebrity Apprentice 4'

Comments (65)


The upcoming eleventh installment of 'The Apprentice' -- featuring a who's who of celebrity personalities-- is gearing up to be the most diverse cast yet.

Though NBC and Donald Trump have yet to formally confirm what big-name superstars would be participating in the new reality competition series, because taping kicked off this week in New York City, news has already leaked of some of the show's big names.

The sixteen hopefuls recently gathered at the real estate mogul's Trump Tower Penthouse for a private cocktail party in New York, but until now the final cast list was kept on the hush.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Nene Leakes is the final addition to the cast. The 'Never Make the Same Mistake Twice' author will go head-to-head with former TV personality Star Jones and music acts like Lil' Jon, Dionne Warwick, LaToya Jackson for a cash prize for the charity of their choice.


According to published reports, other competitors on 'Celebrity Apprentice 4' include sexy models 2010 Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk and Niki Taylor, musicians/singers like rocker Meatloaf, Sugar Ray front-man Mark McGrath, and country star John Rick of Big & Rich, and actors David Cassidy, Gary Busey, deaf Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin and Lisa Rinna.

There will also be two controversial figures - former 'Survivor' winner Richard Hatch, who evaded paying his taxes on his reality show winnings and wound up in jail and Steroid-using baseball star Jose Conseco.

Shooting is set to continue through the first week of December with the new season's ten episodes beginning to air next March on Sundays through May.
