More names of stars set to appear on The Celebrity Apprentice were dropped Thursday during Donald Trump's interview with the co-hosts of The View.

Dionne Warwick, LaToya Jackson, Lisa Rinna were all mentioned by Sherri Shepherd to Trump, who appeared in segment to chat about his reality show and a possible run for President.

The mogul himself added José Conseco – whom he called a "real piece of work" – David Cassidy and Meatloaf to the list.



But one contestant mentioned was of particular interest to Shepheard and costars Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg: former View co-host Star Jones.

"How is Star doing?" Shepherd asks.

"Honestly – I know it's been a little controversial over here – she's very, very smart," Trump said. "You're not surprised. She's complicated but I'll tell you what, she's really smart."

Who else is making a good impression? "Lisa Rinna is doing very well, actually," Trump said.

Earlier this month, Gary Busey and Mark McGrath were spotted selling pizza in New York City, where it was reported they were filming a challenge for Trump's show, which is expected to return to NBC in March.
