Someone has taken the time to put it in a script format and this is a behind the scenes look at the first day on the set of the new “Celebrity Apprentice.” It’s very rare that you find something like this before the show goes on the air. I only wish I could have been a fly on the wall in that room!

Scene opens with the group sitting in a room filled with couches and chairs. Everyone appears to be comfortable accept for Gary Busey who is pacing, and mumbling to himself
Lil Jon: Hey, what are you so jittery for “Busboy?”

Lil Jon: I can’t wait to see a good cat fight!
David Cassidy: Hey Canseco, you still juicing up?
Canseco: What did you say?
Cassidy: Oh, I’m no accusing you. I’m just saying, I’m still in AA and I can’t be around needles.

Niki Taylor: Nobody answered my question… am I skinny or thin?
Hope: I don’t think you’re anorexic. (Winks at Niki)

Busey: I don’t remember (both laugh)
Hatch: When do we all get naked? (Yelling) I’m getting naked now!!!

Cassidy: Doesn’t anybody have a needle!!!!
Marlee Matlin: (Does sign language to her assistant/interpreter) I never thought I would sign this, but sometimes it’s good to be deaf. I can hear no evil, speak no evil and close my eyes and see no evil. (They both laugh as he says something in sign-language back to her)
NeNe: Hey! What did she say? (Looks at Marlee Matlin) What did you say? You ain’t said nothin’ this whole time, and you and your friend just start laughing out of thin air????
Busey: Give a rest NeNe.
(THE Donald ‘Trump’ walks into the room)
NeNe: I ain’t giving nothing a rest until I find out what she said!
The Donald: Give it rest NeNe. Has everyone had a chance to meet and greet each other?
(Lots of low grumbling and talking in the room)
The Donald: By leaving you alone in this room, I was hoping you would all have a chance to cozy up and make friends with your teammates.
Meatloaf: And that’s exactly what happened. Donald. We were just about to start ‘making love out of nothing at all.’ You want to join us?
