The Do-Gooder's Apprentice

It seems that America's most notorious real estate mogul conceals a heart of gold (metaphorically, though Donald Trump's heart might actually be made of gold).

Turns out that the stars who fight for pretend employment on "The Celebrity Apprentice" every week -- the likes of Debbie Gibson, Meatloaf, Clay Aiken, George Takei, Bret Michaels, Lil Jon duke, et al --
are vying for a chance to win $250,000 for their favorite charity. Jolly good show, as the Brits would say (about the charitable part, if not the, you know, show).

Could be that this isn't news to the diehard devotees of this riveting reality show. The fact that this blogger wasn’t might be attributed to: A) the fact that she's never seen it, B) the host’s other publicity stunts, somewhat ironically, crowd out this quite endearing story, or C) the liberal media elite refuses to give him a fair shake. I'll let you decide.

Contestants in the current season (also known as "The Apprentice 12") are giving their all for charities like Racing for Cancer, Gay Men’s Health Crisis, After-School All-Stars and The Magic Johnson Foundation. If you’d like to know who's lining up behind which cause and why, tune in to NBC on Sundays at 9/8 central, or click here.
