As we previously reported, Philly-born reality queen Kate Gosselin will star in the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, scheduled to begin airing on January 4th. Coatesville native and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir was also supposed to be on this season, but he dropped out in the midst of a difficult divorce.

According to People, “The rest of the cast of Season 7 … includes musician Kevin Jonas, Deadliest Catch star Sig Hansen, Real Housewives stars Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore, actor Lorenzo Lamas, NFL player Terrell Owens, talk show host Geraldo Rivera, actor Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210), TV host Leeza Gibbons, Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, actress Vivica A. Fox, Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson, World Series champion Johnny Damon, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show) and actor and comedian Gilbert Gottfried.”

The show will also feature an appearance by the recently deceased Joan Rivers, who was there to tape a few episodes when the show began production earlier this year. Rivers won Season 8 of Celebrity Apprentice, and will step in this season as a mentor.
