Geraldo Rivera Blasts Brian Williams's Critics for Putting Him 'on the Garbage Heap of History'

Originally posted 02/18/2015 08:15PM

Geraldo Rivera has one word for the treatment of Brian Williams of late: "appalling."

Actually, Rivera, 71, has plenty to say on the subject.

"I think that, with time, people will say, 'What the hell was that about?' " the Fox News senior correspondent tells PEOPLE. "However, they are also, I believe, being so hypocritically self-righteous about what Brian did."

Ian Ziering's Celebrity Apprentice Finale Blog: Beauty Beats the Beast

He may have found fame in Beverly Hills, 90210, but Ian Ziering has set his sights on another zip code these days. Ziering relocated to New York City to vie for the title on Donald Trump's Celebrity 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 on his opponents: Have they ever faced off against a throng of sharks? That is, not in the boardroom …

Follow Ziering on Twitter and check back for his exclusive blog posts on PEOPLE.com after each episode of
The Celebrity Apprentice.

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!
