Donald Trump, Cher
Donald Trump has opened his mouth again — and this time he's going after Cher.
Donald Trump: Rosie O'Donnell is a failure
The real estate mogul slammed the singer on Fox News Monday, calling her lonely and miserable, when he called in to Greta Van Susteren's show to talk about the President Barack Obama's campaign ad that calls Mitt Romney a "job destroyer" for his involvement with Bain Capital. (You can watch the ad here.)
Kathy Griffin's Emmy winning Bravo reality series My Life on the D-List ended in 2009, but the unapologetic red-headed comedian is back —this time with a self-titled talk show. Griffin promises that Kathy, a weekly series that premieres Thursday at 10/9c, will stay true to her no-holds-barred style, which means drinking on set will be frequent, and clothing will be optional.
Rosie O'Donnell, Donald J. Trump
Donald Trump wasted little time before tweeting his satisfaction about OWN's cancellation of The Rosie Show.
OWN axes The Rosie Show
On Friday, OWN announced that Rosie O'Donnell would tape her final episode this Tuesday. (It will air on Friday, March 30.) The show, which debuted in October, averaged just 497,000 viewers. Trump pounced quickly.

13. Best Wigging Out: The Real Housewives of Orange County get together for an '80s party and — surprise! — there's drama when Slade stops by, just days after ripping Vicki and calling her ugly in his stand-up act. Vicki, complete with big hair, gets up to leave, telling Slade that her parents think she's beautiful and that she has never been mean to him. When Gretchen brings up Vicki's "deadbeat dad" comments about Slade, as well as Vicki's new boyfriend's own problems with paying child support in the past, a full-blown argument breaks out. Neon colors have never made us more depressed.
12. Best Reality Check: On Life's Too Short, Ricky Gervais calls up his Office pal Steve Carell to see if he'll do a guest spot on Gervais' new project. Carell only agrees to "consider" the role, which...
George Takei's time on Celebrity Apprentice may be over, but he's not finished with Donald Trump yet. The actor and gay rights activist says he plans to persuade the real estate mogul to understand his position on gay marriage.
Watching celebrities be forced to do "normal people" things like selling hot dogs, or working as hotel employees is inherently funny. But when you throw in a few hilarious comedians and B-listers that have inflated perceptions of their own notoriety — as they have on this season's Celebrity Apprentice — it almost guarantees viewers will be laughing the whole way through.
What's Homeland star Mandy Patinkin's favorite medication? Viagra, he tells New York magazine in a Q&A.
Donald Trump — who apparently is not running for president — says he initially struggled to persuade household names to sign up for Celebrity Apprentice when the series premiered in 2008. Not anymore (or so says the Donald).

14. The Ex Factor Award: Jenny doesn't know how to swim, so the sadistic producers of Fear Factor make her drive a car into water! When she and her ex/teammate Sean exit the car as it sinks, Jenny expects him to help her to dry land. But he doesn't. "He left her! Whoa! She's going under," host Joe Rogan says. The show's diving team rescues Jenny, who is understandably peeved at Sean. "I waited there for you," he says. Er, no, you didn't. And even if you did, she can't swim!
13. Nerdiest Trash Talk: Nothing less than first place on The Amazing Race would have sufficed for perfectionist Cindy and her fiancé Ernie. They eventually win the $1 million, but not before dissing the other two teams during the final leg. "It would be like losing to C students and we're ....
Jeff Probst, Survivor
The finale of Survivor: South Pacific airs this Sunday, and in reflecting on the season, we're feeling like the franchise is getting a bit stale. So we began to imagine what a "Celebrity" Survivor would be like.
Would it be the train wreck that I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here so quickly became? Or perhaps it would have a more successful run, like Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, now approaching its sixth season. Either way, we'd want to see Jeff Probst in the competition, rather than hosting it — and then, we'd place our bets on him.
As the host of Survivor for the past 11 years, Probst has traveled to 16 different countries, presented checks to 22 winners, and witnessed over 500 competitions. At this point, we figure he has a foolproof strategy to win the game. So we decided to ask him about it.
Check out Probst's six-point plan for taking Survivor's million-dollar prize:
1. Read people. I think I'm a pretty good read of people. That really subtle read of the competitors from moment to moment is crucial.
2. Stay involved. I would play...
