The new season of The Celebrity Apprentice 2011 premieres tonight at 9PM on NBC and will feature 16 different celebrities battling it out for charity. Among those celebrities is Star Jones who is playing for the American Heart Association. Star is best known as a former host of the hit TV show The View. She has spent much of her time since leaving The View in 2006 trying to rebuild her career.

Celebrity Apprentice’s Star Jones is one of those celebrities that was on a hit show and left it so she could be the solo star of her own show only to find out that the public has no interest in them away from that original show. In this case Star left The View and tried to start her own show on the TruTV network, but it never took off and lasted less than a year. Since then she has released two books and has finally come clean about having gastric bypass surgery.  While on The View she got married to Al Reynolds (whom she is now divorced from) and held a huge wedding with more than 500 guests. More than 30 “sponsors” donated just about everything used in the wedding in exchange for Star mentioning them on the show and during any appearances she made. She came under pretty heavy fire from people who were angry with her for using her show to get a free wedding. There are some that speculate that was the beginning of the fallout between her and Barbara Walters that ultimately led to her leaving The View.

Star Jones now joins the cast of The Celebrity Apprentice 2011 and we will see how she hold sup. Supposedly she is in good health and I have a feeling she will be motivated to do well and come off well in the public eye.
