Clay Aiken, my reality TV obsession of 2003 + The Apprentice, my reality TV obsession of 2004 = weekly posts about The Celebrity Apprentice. It’s going to be a thing.
[I know all anyone remembers from the first season of The Apprentice – if they remember anything at all – is that Giuliana Rancic is married to the dude who won, and also Omarosa. BUT IT WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! It was Troy and Kwame and their beautiful, perfect BFFery, it was crazy Sam and his cowboy hat trying to sell a dude a thousand dollar cup of lemonade, it was Carolyn and George being total badasses as Trump’s advisors, it was the grand prize on one challenge being a tour of Donald Trump’s hideously tacky apartment, it was the final task being to manage a JESSICA SIMPSON concert. I own the first season of The Apprentice on DVD, you guys. It’s serious between us. As for Clay Aiken, I’ve seen him live three times. THRICE.]
