A month and a half after NBC announced it would no longer be airing the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants following Donald Trump's controversial comments about Mexican immigrants, the network has opened up about cutting ties with the presidential hopeful.
"He is a lovely guy. He was very much of a collaborator and worked with us closely on Celebrity Apprentice and is a really effusive great guy," said NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt when asked about their working relationship with Trump at the Television Critics Association press tour Thursday. "We weren't in any adversarial position. We had no controversies. He had his own personal controversies. It was a congenial, really great relationship."

Move over, Donald Trump.
A surprising contender just threw his hat in the ring to replace the real estate tycoon on TV. Lord Alan Sugar, a prominent English businessman, says he "would like the challenge" of hosting the The Apprentice in the United States.
The Brit expressed his desire to take the reins on Twitter in response to suggestions that he would make a "perfect replacement." Sugar already fronts the U.K. version of The Apprentice on BBC.

Apprentice. Besides being a clothing entrepreneur – though he's also Chippendales-approved and ready for any tasks that require shirtlessness – Ziering has one major edge one his opponents: Have they ever faced off against a throng of sharks? That is, not in the boardroom …

Cosmopolitan ProjectFor the teams' fourth task, we had to come up with a four-page health and fitness layout layout for Cosmopolitan. Having Terrell Owens and Johnny Damon on our team really helped focus us on what we needed, content-wise. We also used our athletes as fitness models.
Geraldo Rivera modeled, too. With his infamous "selfie at 70" from last summer, he's feeling quite confident these days.

The various allegations of sexual abuse currently being leveled against Bill Cosby made Sunday's premiere of Celebrity Apprentice a little awkward, to say the least.
Keshia Knight Pulliam, best known for her role as the adorable Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show, was the first to get fired from Donald Trump's newest team of Celebrity Apprentice hopefuls.
As project manager, it was Pulliam's responsibility to ensure that her female-driven team – which included Housewives Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore – raised more money for charity than their male opponents, led by Geraldo Rivera.

While Joan Rivers may have been known for a fairly caustic wit, her upcoming appearance on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice proved to Donald Trump and the rest of the cast and crew that she wasn't all sharp edges behind the scenes.

It would be an understatement to say that the host of Celebrity Apprentice is the head of one unusual household.
And yes, Donald Trump's children know that they were spoiled.
However, as Donald Jr., 37, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview from the family's gilded penthouse in New York City, they were "spoiled the right way. Spoiled with great experiences, great surroundings, and incredible environments that really allowed us to see other incredible people and really try to emulate that."

When Omarosa Manigault appeared on her archrival Bethenny Frankel's talk show on Wednesday, confrontation was expected – and viewers weren't disappointed.
The pair – who've been feuding for more than three years since Frankel dismissed The Apprentice star as nothing more than a reality TV villain – didn't hold back. In the segment, Manigault suggested that the reason why Frankel had been successful was because she was white.
"It's different for you and I," she told the talk show host. "I am an African-American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business."

The Apprentice season 10 began Thursday with a battle of the sexes in the two-hour NBC premiere. Dropping the celebrity angle, the show took on 16 new hopefuls vying at a chance to work for Donald Trump after becoming unemployed due to the recession.
Dividing the contestants into teams of men and women, Trump assigned each a design project to build an ultra-modern workspace. They would be judged on execution, functionality and originality. Gene was elected to take charge for the men. His group was up against the women, led by Nicole, who volunteered to be project manager for her squad.
Both leaders took flack from their teammates. "Our lack of focus has to be Gene's fault," teammate James said during the project design. "We have eight people who are motivated and ready to work. He needs to take that energy and direct it."
