Leaks are flying for the upcoming “Celebrity Apprentice” and Atlanta looks to be represented, courtesy of rapper Lil Jon.
TMZ broke the news that Mr. “Get Low” will join steroids-pumped former baseball player Jose Canseco, “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch, supermodel Niki Taylor.
Three other names were leaked yesterday: former “View” talker Star Jones, LaToya Jackson and Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray.
Lil Jon, 39, helped make the phrase “Get crunk!” famous. His most successful run of hits was from 2003 to 2006. His solo album released this year didn’t do particularly well.
Set to come out early 2011, this will be the fourth “Celebrity Apprentice” for Donald Trump. After a three-year-break, he and NBC tried to revive the non-celebrity edition this fall using the premise of unemployed white-collar folks seeking redemption. It has failed miserably, not even drawing 4 million viewers a week, a dismal showing for an NBC show at 10 p.m. Thursdays. (Yes, that used to be the spot “ER” aired.)
