I exclusively spotted the twirl queen aka “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Kenya Moore making herself dizzy for charity at Manhattan’s PieFace bakery, while “The Cosby Show” star Keshia Knight Pulliam and “Sharknado’s” Vivica Fox were swiping customers’ credit cards. The roving cameras gave away the best kept secret: competitors for latest round of “Celebrity Apprentice” have been chosen.
Although it hasn’t been officially announced, it was pretty obvi this was a team challenge. Also rounding out the group that’s pegged “Team Infinity” are talk show host Leeza Gibbons, snowboarder Jamie Anderson (she waited on me, such a sweetheart.), “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Brandi Glanville (we chatted about how amazing the food smelled), gymnast Shawn Johnson and “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” Kate Gosselin, who was surprisingly friendly.
So, here’s the scoop. Customers buying a pie could take a snapshot with a celeb. So, after Rudy, er Keshia rung me up, (and in the process I took many candid shots of her) I hauled ass to Ms. Twirl, who pranced around the shop like a ballerina on steroids, to take a cute pic together.
It was hard to tell who was the team captain, but if I had to guess it was either Kenya or Kate because they weren’t working as hard as the ladies behind the counter, which got me thinking what charities are they shilling pies for.
Well, I’ve come up with a few guess-estimates. Keshia Knight Pulliam will more than likely throw her Kamp Kizzy non-profit into the ring. It’s a mentoring camp for young girls. Vivica’s charity is a little hard to narrow down. She’s supported so many over the years, but if I were a betting woman I’d put it on Breast Cancer Awareness or Sojourn, an LA-based safe haven for domestic violence survivors, because of her public support of the charities in the past. And finally Kenya Moore would be honoring who else? Kenya Moore, lol. I can bet my hat she will try to pull in money for The Kenya Moore Foundation that offers young girls from her alma mater, Cass Technical High School, educational scholarships.
The upcoming season of “Celebrity Apprentice” looks to good to pass up. So, I’ve decided to recap each episode. Stay tuned, my loves. And let the games begin.
