Comedienne Joan Rivers has been enlisted by business tycoon Donald Trump to take part in his hit U.S. TV show THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE.
Rivers, 75, admits she has never seen the show - a spin-off of Trump's The Apprentice - but is keen to work under the guidance of her new mentor.
She says, "I will be on Celebrity Apprentice... They are going to send me tapes."
The show's new season is set to begin recording in the autumn (08) and is scheduled for a premiere in January (09).
Network executives have yet to confirm Rivers' appearance, although the star had been tapped to participate in last year's (07) season before scheduling conflicts forced her to cancel.
A spokesperson for the show says, "We can't confirm any casting until an official announcement closer to the airdate."
Former Celebrity Apprentice stars include model/actress Carol Alt, boxing champion Lennox Lewis, rocker Gene Simmons and actor Stephen Baldwin.
