Meat Loaf Reveals a New Song with His 'Celebrity Apprentice' Team (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 20th 2011 3:35AM
Meat Loaf, 'Celebrity Apprentice'You never know where a musical collaboration might be born. Most people probably wouldn't guess that it would find its genesis on a show with Donald Trump. But that's exactly what's happened on this season's 'Celebrity Apprentice.' On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), Meat Loaf offered a sneak preview of the track.

It's a collaboration between him, his two fellow finalists on the men's side (Lil Jon and John Rich), and the already eliminated Mark McGrath. This is what happens when you force a bunch of musicians to hang out together.

What's fun about it is the diverse musical backgrounds and fields they're bringing into this joint number, called 'Standing in the Storm.' "It's kind of a rock/country/hip-hop thing," Meat Loaf said. "It's very interesting."

Is It the End of the Road for Gary Busey on 'Celebrity Apprentice'?

Gary Busey & Mark McGrath, 'Celebrity Apprentice'Gary Busey's unpredictability has had the men on the edge of their nerves for weeks now on 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Sun., 9PM on NBC). Last week, Meat Loaf had an infamous meltdown of expletives and rage toward Busey, though that was ultimately undeserved. But it's safe to say that Busey has been a difficult teammate.

This week, he was up to his antics again during the challenge, driving the guys crazy and even hitting up the Australian Gold executives for some work.

Mark McGrath was the project manager for the men's team, and LaToya Jackson took point for the women. While both teams did exceptionally well, one team stayed on task and sold the message better.

Mark McGrath on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Mark McGrath made the cut as Clip of the Week -- and the No. 1 clip of the year, on 'The Soup' for a 2010 appearance on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated). He was back on the show Thursday, and both McGrath and Williams were beaming with the pride of their accomplishment.

McGrath praised Williams' "crowd," but said they were dangerous, because they made him think he was funny. "Last time I was here I was talking so much because you guys were laughing so hard," he said, "and then Joel McHale got me on 'The Soup.' "

Williams saw the year-end wrap up show, and said it made her feel like "a proud mother" to see the clip of McGrath pop up. McGrath also confessed that when he was on 'Extra,' he and his co-host would actually try to get on 'The Soup.' "The cheesier the better," he said, "and let's just say we got on a few times."

Gary Busey Is Terrifying in the First 'Celebrity Apprentice' Promo

by Jean Bentley, posted Jan 12th 2011 11:15AM
Gary Busey, Celebrity ApprenticeIn this first promo for the upcoming season of 'Celebrity Apprentice,' this year's gang of unlikely star contestants tell a dude in a suit (what, The Donald was busy?) why they're qualified to be the next champion.

Let's just say their answers probably wouldn't get them a business-related job anywhere else other than an NBC reality show -- LaToya Jackson's "I'm an entrepreneur, and a Jackson" and Nene Leakes' "When I walk into a room, I own it" aren't actual things you can put on your resume. Jose Canseco's menacing bat swing and Gary Busey's terrifying gaze might get me to think twice, though.

La Toya Jackson, Star Jones and Mark McGrath to Battle it Out on 'Celebrity Apprentice'

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 12th 2010 10:00AM
Star JonesWhen the new season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' starts up, expect to see many familiar TV faces. According to Entertainment Weekly, La Toya Jackson, Star Jones and Mark McGrath will be part of the cast vying for cash for their respective charities.

Jackson, sister of pop stars Michael and Janet, is no stranger to reality TV. She appeared in CBS's 'Armed & Famous' while training to become a reserve police officer and was a housemate on the UK's 'Celebrity Big Brother.'

McGrath, the lead singer of Sugar Ray, co-hosted 'Extra,' appeared on 'American Idol' and judged 'Girlicious,' and is currently the host of 'Don't Forget the Lyrics.'

Jones, most famous for her stint on 'The View,' was last seen on an episode of 'Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?'

Mark McGrath to be replaced by Mario Lopez on Extra

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 30th 2008 9:24AM
mark mcgrath mario lopezWho's ready for a Sugar Ray reunion? Anybody? Hello?

Well, ready or not, you're going to get one. Mark McGrath, the Sugar Ray frontman-turned-entertainment-reporter is leaving Extra. Some reports say he's been fired, but The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that he really just wanted to get back to the band.

McGrath has been on hiatus from Sugar Ray for the past three years as he hosted Extra, but now the band is heading back to the studio and Mario Lopez is stepping up to take his spot behind the anchor desk. Lopez's much lauded muscles are apparently too big to share the stage, though. McGrath's co-host, Dayna Devon, has been demoted to Special Correspondent and backup host for Lopez.

I will always look at Lopez as A.C. Slater, so the idea of him becoming a "journalist" kind of makes me laugh. But then again, it's not like Mark McGrath was exactly the second coming of Cronkite. Besides, anyone who could stand 6 inches away from Miss Teen South Carolina as she rambled on about "The Iraq" without completely losing it obviously has some talent.
