The New Celebrity Apprentice premiered Monday night with two Housewives on the cast and a brand-new boss, Arnold Schwarzenegger, at the helm. With the new season now underway, we can confirm that Kyle Richards and Porsha Williams will face off for another week of fierce competition on the series. Carnie Wilson and Carrie Keagan were the first two celebs eliminated (or should we say "terminated") from the show this season, but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom and The Real Housewives of Atlanta radio host are staying strong and looking forward to what's next.
Ahead of the January 2 premiere, The Daily Dish spoke to Kyle, who admitted she was initially worried about the show's hectic schedule, but ended up enjoying the experience quite a bit. "It ended up being an incredible experience. I ended up really loving it a lot," she said (she's playing for Children's Hospital Los Angeles). "It was challenging physically and mentally and emotionally exhausting, but it was a great challenge and I ended up liking it a lot and really loved the people that I met. So I'm really happy that I did it."
Kyle said she and Porsha had a blast together. "We got along so well," she said. "I think people were disappointed, maybe. We laughed and joked and teased each other the whole time. It was fun."
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi also spoke to us about appearing on the show and playing for North Shore Animal League America. She shared that she and Kyle have a pretty similar style when it comes to competing. "I knew Kyle previously, so it was nice to see a familiar face. She's great. I love her. I consider her one of my friends. It was the first time I met Porsha and she was so sweet and I consider her one of my friends now. I was definitely the closest with those two," she said. "I would say me and Kyle were the same. We were crying. And I would say Porsha, she was Porsha. She killed people."
Sounds like it's going to be a crazy season!
