Marlee Matlin & John Rich: Too Nice to Fight on Celebrity Apprentice?

Originally posted 05/22/2011 06:00AM

Perhaps surprisingly, the two calmest of this season's contestants – Marlee Matlin and John Rich – ended up making it to the finale of Celebrity Apprentice, which will air on NBC Sunday night.

Unlike others who went before them, the Oscar-winning Matlin, 45, and country music's Rich, 37, never locked horns with others, as did Meat Loaf with Gary Busey, and Star Jones with NeNe Leakes.

Marlee Matlin is proving she has a head for business as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice this season. But like many Americans, the actress has been affected by the economy and the recession.

Matlin, 45, confirms to PEOPLE that she owes $50,000 in back taxes from 2009, and is working out a schedule to make good on her commitment to the IRS.

"I'm paying it back. I'm not shying away from it and I'm certainly not ashamed of it," Matlin says. "It doesn't mean I'm a bad person. It's reality. It's the reality that a lot of people in America are facing."
