Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kenya Moore and former Cosby kid-star Keshia Knight-Pulliam are the names that have been added to the list of celebs participating in the 7h installment of Donald Trump’s reality competition show, Celebrity Apprentice. According to TMZ, going into next year, the two ladies will be amongst 12 other celebs competing to raise money and awareness to where they are chosen as the Celebrity Apprentice and have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.
Kenya’s twirling and tea delivering has gotten the Bravo show new ratings heights since seasons 5 and 6 which can give her a right to hold her ground on the small screen. Pulliam has also had some first-hand experience with reality TV being the first eliminated from the 2013 ABC celebrity diving show “Splash.”
Donald Trump has highlighted a few Atlanta celebrities over the years on his NBC reality program, including recent “Rachel vs. Guy” winner Herschel Walker, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins of TLC, the infamous Omarosa , Star Jones and Moore’s current nemesis on the show NeNe Leakes, who has admitted to being close friends to Trump. (Leakes just joined “Dancing With the Stars.”)
Other names whispered to be casted are football player Terrell Owens, newsman Geraldo Rivera, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast mate Brandi Glanville and reality TV personality, Kate Gosselin.
NBC has not said when this upcoming season will air but the show effectively took the 2013-14 season off. It’s scheduled for sometime during the 2014-15 season. The last cycle ran in the spring of 2013 with Trace Adkins winning an all-star edition.
