While Dancing With the Stars All-Stars didn't exactly capture the public attention, NBC is attempting its own all-star reality gathering with the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice, debuting March 3.
This one might work better than ABC's, especially once you remember that Celebrity Apprentice has the unique ability to collect the most bizarre (and occasionally bats--- crazy) personalities in the biz. That craziness was on display at the show's TCA panel on Jan. 6, when some of the celeb contestants, including Stephen Baldwin, Lisa Rinna, Trace Adkins, Penn Jillette, and Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, gathered to discuss the new season.
Once we were able to stop snickering long enough to take notes, Hollywood.com gathered the most insane quotes from the panel. Enjoy them, and the first trailer for the new season, below.
On returning to the show:
Busey: "I’m very likable. The reason I did the show is because I didn’t have anything else to do."
Adkins: "It took my house burning down to get me to come back."
On the worthiness of individual charities:
Jillette: "If you’re against my charity you’re against Elvis, and if you’re against Elvis you’re against the United States of America."
On Stephen Baldwin's competitive nature:
Omarosa: "Stephen Baldwin will stab you in the front, as opposed to the back."
Baldwin: "Is that true about me, Trace?"
On how the show helped change the public's perception of the competitors:
Lil Jon: "Grandmoms love me. I can’t go anywhere without a 70-plus-year-old woman coming up to me and going ‘You did so good on Apprentice!’ "
Adkins: "Old ladies are hot for me too now."
On the competition:
Rinna: "Women can be bitchy. Let’s just say that."
Jillette: "Men can be bitchy too."
Omarosa: "Lil Jon had to break up all the fights between me and crazy-ass La Toya Jackson."
On the valuable life skills learned during production:
Adkins: "I don’t think I ever learned anything doing this show that I’ve used anywhere else. No s---."

Fifty years in the biz is sure to teach you a thing or two, especially if you are Mick Jagger. And sex and drugs are just a few of the topics that you study as a rolling stone. When there is a song out there about your dance moves and you have been around the world and then some, there surely is a story to tell. Jagger stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman Tuesday night to present his top 10 list of the things he has learned after 50 years of being a rock star.
Jagger presents "The Top 10 things I, Mick Jagger, have learned after 50 years in rock n' roll":
10. Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album.
9. Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.
8. Before shouting, "Hi, Seattle," make sure you're in Seattle.
7. You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having "Moves Like Jagger."
6. Everybody you meet after you become famous is only interested in you as a person.
5. Song royalties are great, but even they can't match the guaranteed cash flow from a reverse mortgage.
4. A good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every tenth autograph "Doris Goldblatt."
3. Be considerate of other hotel guests — trash your room by 10 PM.
2. You can't always get what you want — like a good joke on the top ten list.
1. You start out playing rock n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs, but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock n' roll and have sex.
