It’s All-Star time. “Celebrity Apprentice” is back and this time, someone is playing for our team.
Actress/model and TV personality Claudia Jordan, one of this season’s celebrity all-stars will be playing for the Tom Joyner Foundation, which awards scholarships to college students in need attending HBCU’s (historically black colleges and universities) and with the help of corporate partners also provides funds to support the schools themselves. In the 13 years since Tom Joyner began the foundation, it has provided over $60 million to students attending HBCU’s around the country. Jordan will join The Party With a Purpose this year on the annual Tom Joyner Cruise April 7-14 and will tweet and Instagram all the fun directly from the ship.
Jordan is best known for her work on two TV game shows – she was only the second African-American to be a presenter on “The Price is Right” and she’s one of the models on “Deal Or No Deal.” Once crowned Miss Rhode Island, beauty parlayed her pageant appearances into a versatile career. Not only has she done her share of TV work, she also has her own show on Sirius XM after four years as part of Jamie Foxx’ popular show “The Foxxhole.” Jordan also appeared on “Tiny Tonight” Tameka “Tiny” Cottle’s new VH1 talk show. (On one of the first episodes, Jordan and guest Tamar Braxton exchanged words and then tweets). If that wasn’t enough, Jordan joins the cast of the new Debbie Allen sitcom “My Parents My Sister, and Me,” and is in training to play an Olympian tempted by performance enhancing drugs.
On “Celebrity Apprentice,” premiering on NBC this Sunday, March 3 at 9 p.m., Jordan faces tough competition from the other All-Stars. Fourteen celebrities return including LaToya Jackson, Dennis Rodman, Omarosa, and Li’l Jon; advisors include Trump’s children, Ivanka, Eric and Don, as well as Arsenio Hall. The premiere episode “The Wolf In Charge of the Hen House,” starts with a meatball-selling competition that ends up setting new fundraising records for both teams. Piers Morgan, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Nikki Taylor and more all make appearances on the episode.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
