    OK, I’m actually excited semi-intrigued. The celebrity component adds a level of toughness, I think, because every celebrity has to be competitive in some way, and generally had to have a success mindset to get to wherever they once got.

    Frankly, as one of the lower profile celebs, I think she’ll do really well.

    I also predict she’ll face some tough competition from Dennis Rodman. He’s a more impressive dude (when he’s not fucked up) than most people realize. I’m surprised they didn’t acknowledge his already highly successful excavation company:

    If you read one of my posts from late last year, you’d know about how well she did (spoiler alert).

    The tasteless oaf, Donald Trump, is broke on paper. Talk about a celebrity bottom of the barrel. I wonder why Dennis Rodman would lower himself enough to associate with these folks. The whole crowd were saddened when O.J. Simpson couldn’t get a leave from jail to join them. Celebrity in America is degrading most of the time.
