NBC ANNOUNCES THE 14 ALL-STAR CELEBRITIES TAKING ON DONALD TRUMP IN THE BOARDROOM FOR THE THIRD SEASON OF 'THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE' PREMIERING SUNDAY, MARCH 14 (9-11 P.M. ET/PT)

Darryl Strawberry, Cyndi Lauper, Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne, Michael Johnson, Holly Robinson Peete, Goldberg, Carol Leifer, Sinbad, Summer Sanders, Rod Blagojevich, Maria Kanellis, Curtis Stone and Selita Ebanks Will All be competing for Charity.

Apprentice" premiering on Sunday, March 14 (9-11 p.m. ET/PT).

Over the course of the celebrity seasons, over $3.5 million has been donated to charities worldwide in addition to money raised from the awareness and exposure on the show. Now 14 new celebrities will rise to the challenge once again it will be men versus women. All the celebrities will be vying for the coveted title as they fight for their respective causes close to their hearts.

The men include: Darryl Strawberry, Bret Michaels, Goldberg, Michael Johnson, Rod Blagojevich, Sinbad and Curtis Stone. The women include: Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Selita Ebanks, Maria Kanellis, Carol Leifer and Summer Sanders.

Donald Trump said "This season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' is going to be fantastic. The list of celebrities we have this season is outstanding and the show will really resonate with our core viewers and fans. I expect this season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' to be the best one yet."

The celebrities will compete in business-driven tasks around New York City using their fame, rolodexes and their business acumen to win weekly tasks and money to donate to their favorite charities, while ultimately battling with each other to stay out of the boardroom and avoid hearing those dreaded words "You're Fired!"

They'll be subjected to long hours, grueling mental challenges, personality clashes and intense scrutiny -- all without the help of their regular support system of agents, managers and personal assistants. Certain tasks encourage the contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations -- making for entertaining surprise visits by some of the world's biggest stars along the way.

Trump and his advisors in the boardroom will judge all of the tasks. Returning back to the boardroom are Trump's children (and colleagues) Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., alongside longtime Trump Organization employee and "Apprentice" advisor George Ross. The boardroom will again feature a "rotating seat," allowing a variety of famous business leaders and industry legends to join Trump in spirited judgment on each task. As with last season, the winning celebrity teams will relish the opportunity to watch the losing team squirm in the boardroom from the comfort of their own war rooms. When all is said and done, 13 celebrities will be famously fired and only one will emerge to become The Celebrity Apprentice.

"The Celebrity Apprentice" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump, Page Feldman and Eden Gaha are executive producers.

ABOUT THE CANDIDATES:Each celebrity contestant was handpicked for their balance of notoriety and business skills. Their bios and photos will be available on NBC Media Village https://www.nbcumv.com/celebrityapprentice.

I watched last year as Joan Rivers took on that "POKAH PLAYAH!!!!" It was kind of an embarassment, but seems celebs are more and more willing to do degrading things. Well, let me amend that... desperate D-List celebs who need the career boost. Truly none of these ill-tempered miscreants are anything more than newsworthy for their efforts in scandal rags and reality television. The truly celbrated ones like the sports figures and singer are long past their prime.

Of course I will watch though. Cyndi Lauper teaming up with Sharon Osbourne? Sounds too funny to miss, although my money is on Mrs. Ozzy if business savvy has ANYTHING to do with this.

I wouldn't call them "All-Stars" but the last Celebrity Apprentice was a ton of fun to watch whether it was Joan betting down that trampy poker player or watching her daughter get dragged around by her cord. I would have that Tom would have gone farther. Oh well. Let the craziness begin.

Tom Green only had one ball... unfortunately one less than what Joan Rivers and Annie Duke had. He was doomed!
