Joan Rivers To Compete On "Celebrity Apprentice"

Joan Rivers will be a contestant on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, she told Ron Pascoe and Paul Telner for the Canadian Jewish News this week (midway through the article is the below excerpt):

After having celebrated her 75th birthday last month, Rivers continues to have a full schedule.

"I have a play in Edinburgh that will go to London. I have two books coming out. I have a tour going around with my comedy act. I have my jewelry company. I perform Wednesday nights at [the New York club] The Cutting Room," she said.

"I'm in a series called Z Rock coming to IFC [Independent Film Channel], doing a TV pilot, offered another game show and will be on Celebrity Apprentice."

She admits that she's never seen Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump's reality TV show. "They are going to send me tapes."

Rivers and her daughter, Melissa, have worked together as co-hosts of endless red-carpet events, starting in 1996 for the TV channel E! Entertainment, then for the TV Guide Channel and next for AOL."It's a lot of fun to work with your daughter. She's the only one that I'm happy who does better than I do," Rivers said.

"I'm very competitive. I'm not sitting back and passing the mantle. You're going to have to rip it from my shoulders."

On her show this morning, Martha Stewart hosted Joan Rivers, who mentioned that she received a gift of Donald Trump steaks. When Joan told Martha that they didn't slaughter Donald to make the steaks, she said "too bad!"
