Kate Gosselin’s disastrous Today Show interview in January earned her broad criticism. But, to NBC producers, is apparently confirmed the mother-of-eight creates interesting television: Sources confirm the network has now picked Kate to appear on the upcoming season of Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Besides Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate appeared on Dancing With the Stars and Wife Swap. Interestingly, ex-husband Jon Gosselin finished his run on Couples Therapy last week, which makes me think the sworn enemies are actually working together to keep one Gosselin on the air at all times…
According to Page Six, other good-as-confirmed contestants are Sharknado‘s Ian Ziering, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir and tennis pro Martina Navratilova. (Kate and Martina were both paired with Tony Dovolani on Dancing With the Stars, which means they could be easy allies or enemies.)
Producers are reportedly close to finalizing a contract with Baywatch‘s David Hasselhoff, which they think would be great because the “unpredictable” star “could be this year’s Gary Busey.” Other stars supposedly on Celebrity Apprentice producers’ wish list are Scott Disick, Snooki, Holly Madison and Kenya Moore.
