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."

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 …

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!

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Joan Rivers Makes Her Final Appearance

Originally posted 02/03/2015 07:15AM

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.

Cosmopolitan Project

For 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.

Geraldo Rivera Blames Tequila for Naked Selfie

Geraldo Rivera Blames Tequila for Naked Selfie

Geraldo Rivera, 70, just wanted to show the world he's as fit as ever.

But after the Geraldo at Large host showed off his physique Saturday in a risqué selfie on Twitter that just barely covered his private parts, his daughter and his network, Fox News, were not too happy.

Blaming tequila, which he says he usually doesn't drink, Rivera explained on Monday to New York's 95.5 PLJ Radio that he'd taken the photo earlier in the day and when he got home from a late night at work, "I had a couple of drinks ... It was 2:30 and I was like, 'Dammit, I like that picture.' I learned how to use Twitter a couple weeks ago and there I was. What a great idea."
