Usually when I hear the words Celebrity Apprentice I can’t help but think of one word, “ugh.” But this past Sunday, they had a secret weapon to make the show a little more interesting. To help his team win the challenge, country artist, Trace Atkins, used his resources to enlist the help of country cutie Hunter Hayes to give a little acoustic performance to impress some suits. Hunter performed “Somebody’s Heartbreak” which got everyone up and dancing. Even Lil Jon is seen bobbing his head and enjoying the show.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, President Barack Obama gets re-elected, Donald Trump is a sore loser, and One Direction wear football uniforms.
HIT: President Barack Obama gets re-elected
Let’s see: I’m a Canadian. I like my healthcare. I’m also a woman so I like my rights. I also love seeing people in love get their happy ending, whether they’re straight, gay queer, etc. So obviously, I’m happy that Obama won and those dickwads (a.k.a. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock) who have absolutely no idea what rape is didn’t. Oh, I might as well mention that a very large group of diverse women (including an Asian-American and an openly gay politician) will be in the senate next year. To quote Tina Fey, “bitches get stuff done.”
MISS: Donald Trump’s Twitter rant post-election results
There was no one more upset than Donald Trump last night after all the news outlets (including Fox News) called the election in favour of Obama. He has since deleted most of the tweets, but it doesn’t matter because, to quote NBC anchor Brian Williams, Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance.” Trump is too short-sighted, stubborn and maybe even xenophobic to even contemplate bi-partisanship and it’s people like him who are splitting America apart. He can rant and rave all he wants, but he has to pull a Bill Clinton by backing his claims with facts before I take heed of his garbage.
HIT: One Direction in (American) football Uniforms
Sorry for the political bits. Apparently, the American political world morphes into the entertainment world during the last days of the election (Canadian elections aren’t as entertaining. Interesting, yes, but not entertaining). To apologize, here’s a photo of One Direction in tight American football uniforms. You are welcomed.

Just yesterday, I wrote a letter to Donald Trump telling him to give up on his ambitious quest to de-President Obama. I even mentioned that in no time would President Obama respond to Trump’s latest shenanigans. For once in my life, I was right.
President Obama joked with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show about an early childhood rivalry with Trump. “This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya,” Obama says with a completely straight face. But on the inside, I know he’s thinking ohh yes, feel the burn Trump.
Of course, the President is referring to Trump’s long-time suspicion of Obama’s American status. Something tells me that Trump is too serious to even realize that Obama is making a joke.
Stephen Colbert is also wearing his Team Obama shirt today by making an equally excellent reply to Trump’s offer. Colbert said that he will give $1 million to the charity of Trump’s choice if Trump lets him “dip his balls” into his mouth. I’m serious.
And so begins the wait for Trump’s next angry rant. The suspense is killing me.
Watch the interview with President Obama here:
Watch Steven Colbert’s offer here:
Dear Mr. Trump,
First of all, I’d like to say thank you. Because of your latest angry rant against President Obama, I now have a reason to write a letter about how much of a lame d-bag you are. Clearly you saw this one coming.
Mr. Trump, you say that it’s necessary that the President “gives” his college applications and passport records to you. Apparently this will prove that the President is in fact a legitimate, 100% American-made man like yourself. You’ve even spiced up the deal with a reward of $5 million to the charity of the President’s choice. Toupée. Er, I mean touché.
I have one question, Mr. Trump — are you for reals? The last time you questioned President Obama’s identity, you got a cold slap in the face from the President with the help of our Disney friends, Mufasa and Simba. I doubt you even know who they are since you clearly don’t understand the concept of joy.
Mr. Trump, I feel sorry for you. Because when President Obama serves you a cold slap in the face: part II, I will be watching with my popcorn in hand and a pen ready to write an “I told you so” letter.
Watch the (lame) proposal here:
We all have expectations in life that are sorely squashed when we realize what we think we look like, isn’t what we look like at all. For example, when the Hammer pants came back in a while ago I jumped all over it, until someone took a photo and I realized they look more like diaper pants, if such a thing exists. Don’t do it.
Anywho, sometimes movies, actors and photos lead us to believe that everyone who shaves their head or bites their lip in attempt to be sexy will be attractive. This is not so. Not so at all. [Source]
Here’s what you think you look like and what you ACTUALLY look like:
On ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ last night, the Donald dropped in to promote the upcoming season of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” and was all about the business.
He talked about the twelfth season of the show that is ‘guaranteed’ to be bigger and better than ever, with 18 celebrities and 15 episodes. He had a few choice words to say about some of the contestants:
On American Idol’s Clay Aiken: ”He’s much different than you’d think. Tough and smart. He really is a tough cookie.
On Real Housewive’s Teresa Giudice: ”Aw, she’s great. She actually flips a table, she gets so angry at a group,” said Trump. “She’s a very calm person … until she gets angry. And then she’s nasty, but she’s terrific.”
On Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider: ”He’s very talented, very tough — tough player, smart as can be, and you watch what happens to him after this show. He’s going to go places, he’s really terrific.”
Both Snider and Giudice were surprise-guests on Fallon last night, joining Trump and Fallon for a classic game of “Password” – and although most of the questions were Valentine’s Day related, the easiest of them all was still a miss of the Donald.
Snider had the word “Fired” – so he pointed at Trump and said, “You’re…”
He was clueless. If only ‘illegal immigration’ was one of the answers. Check out the embarrassing bafoonery below.
Barbara Walters always wraps up the year by announcing the top ten people that have fascinated her the most.
She just unveiled the top 9, according to ABC News.
Royal family member Pippa Middleton made the list. She certainly made heads turn during the Royal Wedding this summer.
Another Brit, Simon Cowell made the list, probably for his controversial roles as judges on popular talent shows. And maybe for finally joining the Twitterverse.
Then there’s the two actors who play gay parents on the hit show “Modern Family”, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.
Captain of the New York Yankee, Derek Jeter also made the list. It’s probably under her contract to include at least one athlete every year.
Donal Trump trumped other business tycoons by appearing on Barbaras list. I bet he paid her a pretty penny for it.
Katy Perry also fascinated Barbara and the rest of the world with her lavish wedding to Russell Brand and all her number one hit singles off of “Teenage Dreams”.
Barbara also included the entire Kardashian family on the year-end list, hence the photo posted above. I think she misinteruperated “fascninating” for “annoying”, though.
The number one person who was the most fascinating person of 2011 will remain a mystery, until her special airs on ABC Wednesday December 14.
If you are a 19 year old white rapper, do you really care what Donald Trump thinks? Well, if you are Mac Miller you care.
Mac got the attention of Donald after his “Donald Trump” video got over 20 million views on YouTube.
“It’s named ‘Donald Trump.’ Maybe he should pay me a lot of money,” says Donald. “I am proud of him. “I haven’t actually seen the language. It’s a little bit hard to understand on the song itself. But this kid is the new Eminem. Everybody says he’s fantastic.”
We don’t think Mac liked the Eminem comparison. When we interviewed Mac one of the conditions of the interview was not comparing him to Eminem.
There is some confusion in how this works, but Gawker reports Getty Images takes a cut, and passes the rest on to “the money-grubbing celebrity.” Gawker also reports that Donald Trump knows nothing about this supposed alliance with Getty.
Anyways, believe it or not andPOP will not be purchasing these photos. In fact, we feel like douches writing this article in the first place.
American President Barack Obama, slayed the crowd on Saturday at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C. Using the same gift of speech that played a large part in his election, Obama executed a hilarious speech roasting Donald Trump, who cameras showed as clearly unimpressed.
“I know he’s taken some flak lately,” said Obama, “but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald.”
Trump, who was reportedly considering running for President of the United States in 2012, has recently been on Obama’s case to produce proof of American citizenship. After the birth certificate was released last Wednesday, Trump spouted off saying, “Today I’m very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish.”
Obama continued on in his speech, saying, “And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter – like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?”
With the supporting laughter and applause of his audience, Obama went on to wryly praise Trump’s “credentials and breadth of experience.”
“In an episode of Celebrity Apprentice, at the steakhouse, the men’s cooking team cooking did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks. And there was a lot of blame to go around,” he said.
“But you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership. You fired Gary Busey. And these are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night.”
After being beaten so badly, you’d think Trump would have the good graces to fake a laugh and pretend to be good-natured about the whole thing. Instead he sat there giving Obama the stink-eye with a bratty pout plastered on his face.
Check out the video of Obama’s hilarious speech, and Donald Trump’s even funnier reaction here.
According to Page Six, Seinfeld was scheduled to attend a Sept. 13 event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Eric Trump Foundation. However Seinfeld has pulled out over remarks Donald made regarding President Obama.
“I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity,” Trump wrote to Seinfeld, “because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader.”
“We don’t care that you broke your commitment,” he continued, “even though the children of St. Jude are very disappointed, and despite the fact that your manager clearly stated you are ‘truly a man of his word.’”
Adding insult to injury, Trump took a shot at Seinfeld’s NBC show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ which Trump appeared on last year.
“What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ even though I thought it was absolutely terrible,” Trump wrote. “Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.”
So this feud does have some merit, as it seems to be politically based. However leave it to Donald Trump to make it a childish pissing match. We side with Seinfeld.
Perez Hilton reports that while introducing Cooper, Larry King said “Let’s see what she’s up to.”
Oh come on! How old is Larry King? It was probably a major senior’s slip, considering he’s like a leathery bat-human hybrid at this point in his life! Plus that’s not even a good joke!
…oh wait, you say this was at a roast? So then it was definitely on purpose then because roasts are never funny even when they try to be.
You heard us! NEVER FUNNY! Donald Trump’s will be just as boring when it airs, so it’s no surprise that mysterious ‘controversy’ is bubbling up surrounding it! We don’t want to say ‘conspiracy theory’ but why else would anyone be watching?
That being said, that was not very LGBTQ friendly Mr. King! We don’t approve.
PerezHilton reports that once he heard that Uchitel was appearing on “Celebrity Rehab,” he rescinded his offer.
“It’s a terrible decision. We have zero interest in her now. Look at what Celebrity Apprentice did for Piers Morgan. He’s getting Larry King’s job. She made a bad mistake.
“Celebrity Apprentice is a huge show and Celebrity Rehab is not. I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available. I’m moving on.”
The title pretty much says it all. Sources tell TMZ that Donald Trump personally called one of Tiger Woods’ old lady friends, Rachel Uchitel, and offered her a spot on the upcoming season of The Celebrity Apprentice.
It likely wouldn’t be too difficult for Uchitel to win the competition, should she accept the offer. She’s got experience with winning large sums of money, namely the $10 million settlement she got from Tiger Woods.
Uchitel took a call from TMZ and let them know that she is “absolutely” going to take the offer. So, you should see her on the show as long as NBC decides she’s a good fit.
The only question is should the wives of the other celebrities on the show be worried?
Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, married businessman Jared Kushner Sunday in Bedminster, NJ, reports Perez Hilton. The bride wore a Grace Kelly-inspired gown by Vera Wang.
Among the 500 guests at the ceremony, performed by Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, were Barbara Walters, Rudy Guiliani, Emmy Rossum and Adam Duritz.
A second reception is planned for Wednesday at the Puck Building in Manhattan, NY. The couple will then head to Africa for their honeymoon.
Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton recently signed an anti-Trump petition after accusing Donald Trump of coercing Scottish residents. Trump is ploughing the way for a brand new golf course developed by the Trump Organization.
Since getting permission to go ahead with the course’s construction in 2008, Trump has been scrutinized by local residents, environmentalists and now British-born Swinton.
Louis Ferreira and I share more than one thing in common: we both speak Portuguese aside from English and both of us were not Sci-Fi kind of guys before Stargate Universe — the latest entity in the space-themed franchise, which premiers today at 9 p.m. exclusively on Space.
Ferreira’s resume includes an impressive amount of TV and film work. His characters range from The Donald himself in a Trump TV-movie, to lead roles in shows like “Trinity” and “Missing,” guest spots on “24” and “CSI Miami,” among tens of other TV series and films, including a a role in this year’s “Grey Gardens” with Drew Barrymore. Still, Sci-Fi remained unexplored territory for the actor (aside from a very short stint on “Star Trek”).
So how did he wind up on one of the most successful Sci-Fi franchises of all time? It’s actually quite a serendipitous story which Fereira (formerly known as Justin Louis) shared with andPOP.
Side story: when the Portuguese-born, Toronto-raised actor kicked off his career in the late ‘80s, early ‘90s, Vancouver was a booming destination for film productions so he’d go there whenever work would dry up in Toronto. “I remember being in my twenties and being like, ‘If I could have the ultimate lifestyle, it would be the farm in Toronto, the apartment in New York’ and I said, ‘a boat!’ If you could live on a boat like “Miami Vice” you would want to do it in Vancouver,” shared the Gemini winner.
Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California who made headlines for opposing same-sex marriage, has been forced to leave her post by Donald Trump.
“I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so,” Trump said in a statement. “Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen.
“Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests.”
Christina Aguilera, “Dirty” diva and recent mom, has been hired by Donald Trump to perform at a party for the opening of his new hotel in Dubai, Trump International Hotel & Tower.
Aguilera will perform for the Donald at a private estate in Los Angeles. Pete Wentz, soon-to-be-dad, is also set to DJ for the night.
This will mark the second time Aguilera has performed since giving birth to her son, Max, in January. Most recently, Aguilera has been in the studio working on a new album and shot a P.S.A. with her newborn son for the Rock the Vote campaign.
Comedian ANDY DICK was forcibly removed by security during an appearance on US talk show JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE Friday night, after repeatedly touching guest IVANKA TRUMP without her permission.
Trump, the daughter of real estate mogul DONALD TRUMP, was attempting to promote her reality show THE APPRENTICE, when Dick kept interrupting her with rude comments.
The troubled comedian repeatedly rubbed Trump’s legs and touched her hair, while Kimmel begged him to behave himself.
When Dick asked Trump to “give him a big, fat, sloppy wet kiss right on the lips” and grabbed her arm, Kimmel called in two security guards.
The talk show host carried Dick’s feet and helped the guards drag him out of the studio.
Trump was a good sport after the incident telling Kimmel, “That was brilliant. See, that was a much more entertaining segment.
“I could sit here and talk to you about the buildings I’m building in Chicago and Las Vegas, but I’m sure you’d much prefer to see Andy Dick actually forcefully removed from a stage.”
