Reality TV Land in America, is increasingly putting pressure on A-List film stars popularity and appeal. Reality TV is the fastest moving media television terrain, stars are made after one season (The Jersey Shore Italian-American kids phenomenon here in the US, for example, not to mention all of those “real housewives unite” shows too.
For Donald Trump‘s store front window, Celebrity Apprentice, which he turns up to judge ‘celebrity’ in America, and leveraging the value of his brands, across his investment portfolio by the exposure, it’s tough times to stay ahead of the reality TV game.
What does he do? He turns to the most proven celebrity brand that sells off shore in China and America. That being Michael Jackson, or, namely Michael’s older sister, LaToya Jackson to lead his starring line up of a new season of Celebrity Apprentice.
In particular, in a creative New York tribute to First Lady Michelle Obama, The Donald is going to play star producer, to a line up of African-American women and leading lights. LaToya’s Jackson glitter, he hopes to parlay onto Ms Warwick, to hot up her star power again. Let’s see how that happens in his format. If you can recall, on the Inauguration day of the Obamas, Dionne Warwick was throwing one of the Inauguration Day parties, which then got canceled, Dionne was never heard of again, so it’s kiss and make up time for Warwick perhaps with Camp Obama. That would be the good mannered thing to do, outside of America, in the manners department anyways.
Here’s all the people also selected to feature with LaToya and Donald. Looks like crazy, American fun. Already. Names via Zap2It: Pic via Michael K. Image of The Donald via Stephen Prosterous blog, Image of Haka bro, Horiwood.Com’s own. Here’s those names.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” NeNe Leakes,
“Survivor winner,” Richard Hatch
As LaToya has been a celebrity, longer than Donald ever owned an investment portfolio of anything, it will be interesting to see, what the outcome of this show will be.
Seriously, let’s cut to the direction of this show already. Dionne Warwick appearing is exciting news. Who can forget her duet with Stevie Wonder here, That’s What Friends Are For. This version with Sir Elton John and the one and only Gladys Knight. And we all know just how much the Obamas love Stevie. Who doesn’t?
As a Maori and rugby obsessed California resident in Hollywood, such news makes me want to bust out with a haka bro Dionne Warwick tribute really. Like so, just for LaToya’s sweetness. Wild card of this series is supermodel Niki Taylor who bounced back from the dead in a car accident, requiring steel put into her back bone. She could win too. Still a good look for Dionne to be seen supporting and being a big ally and friend of white people surviving tragedy in life – is a great look too -with a Niki upset win.
Actually, that storyline is cooler. But if Dionne or Niki win, I’m all cool with that. Of course, LaToya doesn’t need to win she’s a Jackson, African-American entertainment royalty, and there aint no one that can take that away from her. Here’s that song.
