Exclusive! Celebrity Apprentice 3 taping with Sharon Osbourne, Daryl Strawberry, Sinbad, Bret Michaels, Cyndi Lauper

Production on The Celebrity Apprentice 3 began yesterday in New York, and thus we now know the identities of many of the cast members.

In addition to previously revealed cast member Rod Blagojevich, the cast includes America’s Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne, Rock of Love star Bret Michaels, baseball player Darryl Strawberry, singer Cyndi Lauper, and comedian and actor Sinbad.

reality blurred reader Sam N. identified the cast and took the photos below–exclusive!–as they shot the opening sequence, walking down a New York street with camera-friendly wet pavement (15th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues, outside Chelsea Market and Jeffrey’s). A bald wrestler is apparently Bill Goldberg. (Thanks to those who identified him; it’s not Stone Cold Steve Austin.)

The Daily Mail reports that Holly Robinson Peete, an actress, is also on the cast; the paper also has some close-up paparazzi shots of a few cast members.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
