“Epic” is the word The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore is using to describe the forthcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.
The reality TV beauty stopped by the HipHollywood loft this week and opened up about a slew of topics, including her journey on the forthcoming season of Donald Trump’s program. “We have great people on the show. We have Kevin Jonas, we have Geraldo Rivera, we have Terrell Owens, we have so many great names and so many different personalities, that some clash and some gel.”
“As the show progressed and the weeks started to get harder and harder, you really start to see peoples competitive nature come out,” she said about filming earlier this year. “It is incredible. It is going to be the highest rated Celebrity Apprentice ever. I promise you.”
When production got underway, there were rumors that Moore and contestant Vivica A. Fox were already butting heads, but according to the 43-year-old, the drama is universal. “I think there’s is drama on this show, it’s a very competitive show. So there’s drama between several of the contestants. I don’t think it’s specifically me or her.”
The forthcoming season, which will also star Jamie Anderson, Johnny Damon, Kate Gosselin, Gilbert Gottfriend, Sig Hansen,Leeza Gibbons, Brandi Glanville, Shawn Johnson and Keshia Knight Pulliam, will premiere January 4 and January 5, on NBC.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
