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!

Well, Celebrity Apprentice fans, the final boardroom has come and gone, more than a million dollars was raised for charity, the words "toxic trick" were tossed around and Donald Trump pointed his finger guns at 15 different people before naming the latest Celebrity Apprentice.
Without further ado, the winner of Celebrity Apprentice season 7 is Leeza Gibbons!

When TV personality Leeza Gibbons married Steven Fenton in 2011, she joked that she was finally embracing "my inner cougar" – on their first date he was 38 and she was 51.
Now approaching their two-year anniversary in April, Gibbons has given a little more thought to the dynamics of their relationship and concludes that "the term cougar has so much energy around it that doesn't really fit."
"We laugh about it all the time," Gibbons, now 55, tells PEOPLE. (Fenton is a longtime talent manager and former president of the Board of Education in Beverly Hills.) "I always joke that emotionally and with regard to maturity, he's much older than I am."

Leeza Gibbons has some big news, but the TV personality has been keeping it all in the family – until now.
Gibbons, 54, quietly wed Steven Fenton, 41, at midnight Wednesday on the rooftop of the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, where they had their first date. The only guests at the intimate, candle-lit ceremony – which took place before a roaring fire, with white roses from the couple's Beverly Hills home – were the bride's three children: Lexi, 21, Troy 19, and Nathan, 13.
"We are living the fairy tale," Gibbons tells PEOPLE exclusively. "We have so much respect for each other and grow stronger together … always so grateful to have been given another chance at love."
Adds Fenton: "Leeza is the most kind person I have ever known. It's that compassion that I see every day in her children. My life is now complete."

Leeza Gibbons has been keeping a secret.
The former talk show host and her beau of two years, Steven Fenton, got engaged in June, she reveals to PEOPLE exclusively.
Fenton, 40, asked Gibbons, 53, to marry him on the lawn of their new home in L.A. before they moved in. "He was on one knee and I was on Cloud 9!" Gibbons says. "I have a ring but we decided that I won't wear it until we have a private exchange of vows."
Gibbons began dating Fenton, who is President of the Beverly Hills Board of Education, after being set up on a blind date two years ago. "In the beginning, the age thing tripped me up for a minute," she says. "I believe in love and I always held onto the belief that I would find it again but I didn't think it would come in the form of Steven."
