Arnold Schwarzenegger will Host ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

posted by Corine Gatti

ArnoldGOP candidate for president Donald Trump shared on Facebook that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be his replacement for the next season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC.

“Congrats to my friend Arnold Schwarzenegger who is doing next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. He’ll be great & will raise lots of money for charity. To all my fans, sorry I couldn’t do ‘The Apprentice’ any longer— but equal time (presidential run) prohibits me from doing so,” Trump wrote.


The network already severed the relationship with Trump due to comments made about immigrants during a campaign speech, but made a mends and the show was picked up for 2015-2016 season.

The Hollywood Reporter shared that the reality show franchise had a “2.4 rating among adults 18-49 despite the nearly yearlong gap between the start of production in early 2014 and the season’s debut in January 2015.”

What was the actor and former California governor’s reaction? He took to Twitter, of course. “Wow. I’m blown away and honored by all your tweets. I can’t wait to bring my experience to the board room & raise millions for charity.”

Executive producer Mark Burnett reportedly said they’ve found a new leader to say the well-known catchphrase: ‘You’re fired.’


“Donald made it clear that he wanted ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that,” Burnett said.

“The Apprentice” first aired in 2004 and was changed to “Celebrity Apprentice” after six seasons.


Moses Malone Dies at 60

Moses MaloneThree-time NBA MVP and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer Moses Malone, 60-years-old, was found dead Sunday in hotel in Norfolk, Virginia.

Malone failed to appear at a scheduled celebrity gold tournament, which prompted the discovery of his body. There is no indication that foul play was a factor. After hearing the news NBA commissioner Adam Silver made a statement, “We are stunned and deeply saddened by the passing of Hall of Famer Moses Malone, an NBA legend gone far too soon. He was among the most dominant centers ever to play the game and one of the best players in the history of the NBA and the ABA. Even more than his prodigious talent, we will miss his friendship, his generosity, his exuberant personality, and the extraordinary work ethic he brought to the game throughout his 21-year old career. Our thoughts are with Moses’ family and friends during this difficult time.”


Malone’s fans often referred to the star athlete as the ‘Chairman of the Boards.’ He led the Philadelphia 76ers to the title in 1983 and was also crowned Finals MVP. Malone averaged 20.6 points per game and 12.2 rebounds. He played for eight teams over 20 NBA seasons and led the league in rebounding six times. His rebounds totaled 16,212 and Malone still ranks fifth on the NBA’s all-time list. Malone was the first player to go pro right out of high school, signing with the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association in 1974.

Malone has left a great legacy behind and will forever be remembered as one of the best to ever play in the NBA.

Driven Towards Unity

posted by Corine Gatti

The film “Woodlawn” is based on the true story surrounding the Woodlawn High School football team in Birmingham, Alabama during the 1970s where racism was fluid. This changed through a young team, influencing an entire city to put down their hate in exchange for hope.

Written by the Erwin Brothers, the larger than life story follows the rise of African American running back Tony Nathan, his coaches, rivals, and the power of faith in the midst of great darkness. The interracial team made headlines, not for racial tension, but for winning on and off the field. In the midst of chaos—a healing takes place.


Nic Bishop stars as Woodlawn coach Tandy Gerelds, who struggled to patch together a winning football team until he found Nathan. Authenticity was crucial to Bishop, as the Australian actor worked to create a southern accent, and gain a better understanding of Gerelds. “It all starts with the script I’m given, and they [Erwin Brothers] gave me a very detailed description of who this man was or is. So I start making notes from the very first read through, and then I go through a process of research. I was really lucky to have a wealth of photographs, and interviews, some newspaper articles, and journal entries written himself in his own journal.” Bishop described the coach as being a fair man, but a realist. He was a disciplinarian, and believed in hard work. Bishop said his favorite line in the script was when Gerelds turned to assistant coach Jerry Sterns (Kevin Sizemore) and said ‘I believe in what I can see.’ He’s very much driven by his own belief system Bishop shared.  But “he will stand behind his players, his family, or anyone he believes in. He was a good, honest man.”


With the country being so divided emotionally, politically, and racial discrimination seen today–the film comes at a good time. Perhaps the story can be used as a bridge. “I think that sense of unity, that sense of hope—that sense of standing together as one regardless of our faith, or belief system, or our ethnicity… if we all stand together and aim towards a more positive way to live, then you can kind of conquer anything.”

 Jon Voight is Paul “Bear” Bryant, Sean Astin plays chaplain Hank Erwin, and Caleb Castille makes his acting debut as Tony Nathan. “Woodlawn” hits theaters nationwide Oct. 16.
