NBC may still keep the cast of "The Celebrity Apprentice" season 3 a secret but a picture speaks louder. The celebrities participating in the reality show were shooting the opening sequence down on West 15th Street in the Meatpacking District on Wednesday, October 14. It can now be confirmed that Democrat Rod Blagojevich is among the line-up.
Also spotted on the set are Bret Michaels, Curtis Stone, Bill Goldberg, Summer Sanders, Sinbad, Carol Leifer, Sharon Osbourne, and Darryl Strawberry. Singer Cyndi Lauper is not captured in the photo released by NY Post but she is in the one from People. NY Post said that she was "visibly upset" because her wrestler friend Lou Albano died earlier that day. Actress Holly Robinson Peete and wrestler Maria Kanellis are also not in the picture but are reportedly included.
Ivanka Trump confirmed on "Live with Regis and Kelly" that they will start shooting next week. She commented about this season's cast, saying "It's obviously so important to have the right people, and this year we feel so good about the group we've put together. They'll make [season 2 contestant] Joan [Rivers] look calm."
NBC is expected to come out with the official announcement soon including the premiere date in 2010. There are 12 celebrities who have been confirmed but the show traditionally goes beyond that. Rumor has it, talk hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Jimmy Fallon may join.
