Why is Carol Leifer doing Celebrity Apprentice?

Celebrity ApprenticeThe cast for the next edition of Celebrity Apprentice has been officially announced, and...what a weird show this is. I think I mean that in a good way, I'm not sure. It does seem like one of those "so crazy I have to watch it" things (though I won't). Cyndi Lauper going up against Darryl Strawberry? Rod Blagojevich? Sharon Osbourne vs. Bret Michaels? Selita Ebanks vs...wait, who's Selita Ebanks again?

But the name that sticks out to me is Carol Leifer. She's a writer, stand-up comic, and the inspiration for the Elaine Benes character on Seinfeld. Doesn't she seem like the type of person who would dump on reality shows (especially celebrity reality shows) rather than be on one? Then again, even Jerry Seinfeld himself isn't immune from the lure of reality shows. He's producing one that debuts later this year.

Celebrity Apprentice #3 launches on NBC March 14.

I am rooting for Carol because she does so much for animals, adopting children and LGBT issues. Go Carol!!

While I wouldn't sat that Celebrity Apprentice is the top tier of classiness, it's not the bottom of the barrel, and they DO raise a lot of money for charity. Or, some, at least.
