NeNe Leakes has no interest in returning to Donald Trump's boardroom for NBC's planned all-stars edition of The Celebrity Apprentice.
"It was hard as hell — a grueling-ass schedule," says Leakes, who will now juggle her Real Housewives of Atlanta duties with roles on Glee and NBC's new comedy The New Normal. "You work every single day except for Sunday from sunup to sundown. You're locked into a war room and you have to give up your cell phone, your iPad, your laptop, everything. It's a tough show.

(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.

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.
