The cast of next season’s “Celebrity Apprentice” has been leaking all week and we think it’s finally done and actually close to being official. Various news outlets are reporting the following contestants as fact:

NeNe Leakes (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”); Star Jones (formerly “The View”); former “Survivor” Richard Hatch; musicians Meatloaf, Dionne Warrick, Mark McGrath, John Rich, David Cassidy and LaToya Jackson; rapper Lil John; super model Niki Taylor; Playboy model Hope Dworaczyk; actors Lisa Rinna (“Days of Our Lives”), Marlee Matlin (“Children of a Lesser God”) and Gary Busey; and baseball player Jose Canseco.

That’s quite a cast. There are a lot of musicians and several people already pretty used to reality television.

Keep in mind, this cast isn’t 100 percent confirmed, but I think we can believe it.
