She's definitely not with him.

Vivica A. Fox says that in the short year since she appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump has changed – and not for the better.

"I'm like, 'Who are you? Are you serious?' " Fox tells PEOPLE Now of Trump, whom she got to know during season 14 of the reality series in 2015.

She says that "the statements that come out of his mouth on a continuous basis daily are a little disturbing, but that's on him. If that's how he's deciding to run his campaign, that's okay because #I'mwithher."

It's a situation that haunts all of our nightmares: You're gossiping about a friend (or frenemy) of yours via text, only to discover that you've actually sent that gossipy text to the very person you're gossiping about.

Well, comedian Lisa Lampanelli lived out that very horror during the fifth season of Celebrity Apprentice – also known that year as Celebrity Fight Club because Lampanelli "hated everyone" – when she sent a text gossiping about costar Teresa Giudice to teammate Aubrey O'Day … only to find that the message didn't reach its intended recipient.

The Celebrity Apprentice will be back … with the Terminator himself!

Arnold Schwarzenegger will host the reality competition when it returns for the 2016-17 season, NBC announced Monday.

"Wow. I'm blown away and honored by all your tweets," he Tweeted about the news. "I can't wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity."

The actor is replacing Donald Trump, who cut ties with NBC after declaring that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president.

Trump, 69, congratulated Schwarzenegger on Twitter, saying he'll "be great" and raise "lots of [money] for charity." He also apologized to his fans for being unable to continue with the program because of the Federal Communications Commission's guidelines for candidates.





It's like the stars are switching places: Schwarzenegger, 68, turned to politics as governor of California in 2003, and he served two terms in office.

After weeks of intense challenges, both physical and mental, I am thrilled that Leeza Gibbons was named the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice, proving that success can be achieved through positive leadership, grace and elegance. More on that shortly …

First and foremost I want to say that being a part of Celebrity Apprentice has definitely been one of the most difficult (and rewarding) things I have ever done in my life. It was such an amazing experience and an honor to have this opportunity to raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa (EBKids.org), bring in more than $300,000 for this wonderful organization and receive countless Tweets and Facebook messages from families who live with EB.

Now, last night's finale was quite the show! I am thrilled that my friend Leeza Gibbons reigned victorious after all of these weeks of challenges. Though I was a part of Geraldo Rivera's final team, and I gave 150 percent to helping him win for his charity, I think that the right person came out on top. Leeza played the game with grace and a spirit that made this extremely difficult endeavor a little easier for all of us that got to compete with her this season. She is, pure and simple, a class act!

King's Hawaiian

Our eighth task was a New York "photo bomb" campaign for King's Hawaiian.

We all worked well together coming up with hashtags, slogans and visuals. Coming up with a helicopter really made our concepts pop. It was another "not even close" victory for us.

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Joan Rivers Makes Her Final Appearance

Monday night's episode of The Celebrity Apprentice ended in a display of gratuitous firing that felt ... well ... mean.

The first hour divided the teams to shill for King's Hawaiian buns. It was obvious from basically minute one of the task that Kenya Moore's "Baby Likes Buns" idea would be polarizing – offensive, really. And so Team Vortex lost, and Kenya was dispatched.

The second task, which saw the brief return of Joan Rivers – in what was probably her final on-air appearance – was oriented around crafting a jingle for Anheuser Busch's [Fill-in-the-Blank]-a-Rita beverages. Even in the face of an incredibly low musical bar set by Ian Ziering's "La Cucaracha" knock-off, Johnny Damon's blueser for Team Infinity could not compete against Vortex's catch "Nice on Ice" hook. And so, ironically, Infinity ... came to its end. Seriously, the whole team was fired.
