Page Six is circulating the rumor that Khloe Kardashian will be appearing on the next installment of Celebrity Apprentice. NBC has yet to confirm the report, but insiders at the network say they’re way beyond the talking stage and Donald Trump has a signed contract in hand.

Khloe currently stars on E!’s celebreality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians along with sisters Kim, Kourtney and Kendall, mom Kris and stepdad Bruce Jenner. More solid confirmation was given to the report that Joan and Melissa Rivers have also signed on. Less certain are ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman, Domestic Divo Tony Danza and Russian ??????????? Petra Nemcova.

The show caught fire from day one with the unusual premise of fresh young faces vying for the chance to be hired by billionaire comb-over king Donald Trump. In its rookie season Bill Rancic came out of nowhere to become the first rising business prospect to hear the Trumpster utter the words “You’re Hired!” That of course after more than a dozen other unknowns heard the now famous, but fatal phrase “You’re Fired.”


In recent years, ratings have sagged, but the show regained popularity since the cast has been comprised of more well-known candidates, some of whom have shown surprising business acumen well beyond their chosen entertainment careers (most notably Stephen Baldwin.) America’s Got Talent Judge Piers Morgan was the winner in the last contest, season 7.

Celebrity Apprentice begins filming this fall in New York City and is scheduled to premiere in January on NBC.
