Jeff Gordon, Naomi Judd, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Pete Rose, George Foreman, Jim Kramer will be on celebrity Apprentice

Donald Trump has revealed several of the cast members for the upcoming celebrity edition of The Apprentice, and they are actually well-known celebrities.

Page Six reports that “he’s already signed” the following celebrities: “Jim Cramer, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, George Foreman, … Kimora Lee Simmons, Pete Rose, Dana Patrick, Tony Hawk and Jeff Gordon.” Also included, even though the paper misspelled her name, is season one cast member Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.

In addition, Trump said, “We’re negotiating with Britney [Spears] right now. Can you imagine her doing it? We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she’d be great.”

He also said that Paris Hilton, who is reportedly joining the UK’s celebrity Big Brother in January, “wants to be on, and we’re thinking about it, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it.” In addition, he’ll ask Lindsay Lohan, who he calls “Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them.”
