Having wrapped production on The Apprentice 2, Donald Trump and company–mostly company–are starting to cast for The Apprentice 3. Auditions begin today at Universal Studios Hollywood, and will hit at least 16 cities between now and August. Trump will actually audition people himself today from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today, and will also reportedly show up for the New York auditions. Meanwhile, first season cast member Katrina Campins was beaten up by two tow truck drivers in North Miami Beach. After an altercation with two brothers who were towing their car, Katrina and her boyfriend went to retrieve their car, and “a fight with the Seay brothers erupted again.” Katrina “broke her nose, while [boyfrined] Moss needed several stitches on his lip and suffered a laceration on his head,” the AP reports.
