After last night's season high ratings, Donald Trump took time to talk about the latest episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" and its surprising influence in the media.
"Well I'm amazed at how much press this is getting," the real estate mogul said. "People are finding the show fascinating, that's why the ratings are so good but I'm amazed at how the press is covering it because they can't get enough of the show."
Donald also spoke on his decision to fire the latest contestant, Dionne Warwick. "She had attitude, she had a lot of things going," Donald affirmed. "Boy she had attitude and the other women on the show really couldn't stand her, they couldn't take her any longer and they really went against her."
When confronted with whether or not the drama will stop on the show, the Donald resounded with a less than subtle hint. "Well what happens in the next four weeks is the most incredible scenes I've ever seen on television or reality television in terms of fights and craziness."
Check out the video to hear more from the Donald and tune into "Celebrity Apprentice" Sundays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
From Los Angeles to Miami! Paris Hilton connects via telephone to Lil Wayne for Interview Magazine’s April issue.
Hilton and Wayne met at a Grammy Party he threw in Los Angeles (Hilton hosted the event). The rapper tells Hilton he loves being the so-called new King of Hip-Hop. "I guess if that brings forth pressure, then I'm up for it...As long as people remember me forever that will be enough for me."
Wayne tells her he makes music for his fans. And when asked about rap lyrics often being about money, sex and violence, the rapper adds, "Music is a reflection of who you are, and if those things that you mentioned are what your music is all about, then I guess that's who you are."
Wayne says he gained inspiration from the record company he was with from the beginning and still with today. "He says, Cash Money Records...they were pretty big locally in New Orleans and so I always looked up to them."
He dishes to the socialite about working with newfound rapper, Drake. "I already knew that he had potential beyond my imagination, because the kid was singing and rapping-and he was rapping real well," Wayne explains. He adds that the rapper would have been successful with or without him. His advice for Drake, "...stay humble and remember who you are throughout it all, because there's gonna be moments in every single day when you'll have to go back to that person and reflect on that person."
Hilton & Wayne go on to discuss their experiences behind bars, both having been in solitary confinement. Hilton adds, "I had to spend 24 nights in solitary confinement...I know how it is." They both agree that being released from custody was a great feeling. Wayne says, "Words cannot express." Hilton adds, "It's the best feeling in the world when you come out."
While Wayne says he does not Google himself, he did add that he used to be on Twitter. "I Once it got hacked I had Twitter fix it. They changed it. And then it got hacked again so I just shut it down. As of right now, I'm on Twitter strike," Wayne explained.
Lil Wayne will be taking over Interview Magazine’s website this week from March 28th – March 30th, providing his own exclusive content for the website. Check out the full interview in the April issue of Interview Magazine.

The stars turned out in droves on Saturday night for Perez Hilton's Blue Ball celebrating his 33rd birthday at Siren Studios in Hollywood.
Showing up wearing a brown afro wig and a fringe covered outfit, Perez says that his outfit was, "inspired by Elvis and Liberace. In other words, fierce and fabulous."
Not just content with enjoying his birthday, Perez was glad to be able to use his party for a special cause. "I've been able to use my birthday as an opportunity to raise awareness and money for GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network," Perez says. "I really want to raise awareness for them and raise money because I want to try to save lives, and have a party and do it all."
Also in attendance to celebrate Perez's birthday were "Dancing with the Stars" pros Lacey Schwimmer, Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson, Karina Smirnoff, model Joanna Krupa, "The Big Bang Theory"'s Mayim Bialik, and "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Do the "Dancing with the Stars" judges get along, or is there dissension in the ranks? Which judge gets so nervous that they've gotten sick right before the show started? Which of the two is "like an old married couple"?
Hear a few secrets from the judges themselves -- Carrie AnneInaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli -- as we time warp back to their early "Dancing with the Stars" interviews!
"Dancing with the Stars" contestant Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower hit the dance studio to rehearse for their next dance. With their first dance, and butterflies, out of the way, Romeo finds the similarities in doing anything for the first time.
"That first dance, I feel great right now," the former USC basketball player said. "It's like playing that first big basketball game. That first game is always the most pressure and it drives you crazy and it just feels good to let this dance out and move on to the next one."
The pair's next dance will be the Quickstep and Romeo did his best to sum it up in two words. "It's fast, that's all I'm going to say."
Chelsie elaborated more on what to expect on the next episode and alluded to a strategy they have for the judges. "It's going to be fun," she proclaimed. "We have a really fun theme this week and I'm really trying to get him involved and wrapped up in the character and the technique obviously to please Bruno [Tonioli]."
When pushed about revealing the theme, Romeo and Chelsie gave nothing away but a tiny morsel for people to think about. "All I'm going to tell you is I'm going to do something very special for a special lady."

It's time to jump back 21 years to March 28, 1990 when Audrey Hepburn appeared at a gala hosted by UNICEF honoring her efforts with the relief group.
When asked if she thought the organization was old, Hepburn responded, "Old? All the better! They have 45 years of experience and they're going strong in 120 countries. I wish I could take those people with me and see what we're doing."
Speaking on the work UNICEF has done, Hepburn was quick to remind that "Where there was no water, there is water today. Where there was no health care, children are being vaccinated."
X marked the spot in Los Angeles on Day 1 of a nationwide search for the first $5 million "The X Factor" champion in the United States. Does the next singing sensation already call Hollywood home?
With such a large jackpot, executive producer Rob Wade estimated that over 15,000 hopefuls registered to audition. "We're looking for a global superstar… This isn't a TV show. This is genuinely an audition to find the best singer in America."
"The X Factor" is already a phenomenon in the U.K. Thanks to Simon Cowell, the talent competition jumped across the pond to U.S. turf. It's still unclear who will be joining the snarky Brit and L.A. Reid on the judging panel.
With two slots to fill, the auditionees weighed in on possibilities. Some of the names thrown out there were Cyndi Lauper and the head of Sony. Kenneth Schwab, 52, from Las Vegas, opined, "Sharon Osbourne because I love Ozzy." Sisters from the group "The Kleindashians" thought Cheryl Cole and Mariah Carey would have a lot to offer, but would be "intimidated" by Mariah. Rob promised he and Simon are actively working towards making a final decision.
Young and mature alike filled the L.A. Sports Arena, all sharing one common goal. An overwhelming number of solo acts turned up in comparison to groups. The ensembles tended to keep it a family fair. A mother and daughters group, father/son duo, and brother trio showed us what they got. Modern-day Von Trapps, the Fowler Family trio of sisters, "started singing together 7 years ago at church" and are now embarking on the road to fame and fortune.

Actress Greta Gerwig found herself in an awkward situation on set with Russell Brand while shooting the new comedy 'Arthur,' and she dished on the event to "The Insider" co-host Kevin Frazier.
Greta plays Russell's love interest in the movie, so the script called for her to kiss Russell several times, but Greta didn't know who would be watching.
"One of the scenes when he kissed me - where the first time we meet and he kisses me in front of the police officers - Katy Perry's were there that day," said Greta.
When Kevin asked how Russell kissed her, Greta responded, "Very respectfully and very aware of the fact that he's married to the most beautiful woman in the world."
While Russell is married to one of the hottest singers in the world, Katy Perry, he can still appreciate beauty when he sees it. Kevin had the comedian dish on Helen Mirren's status as a sex symbol.
"She is sexy isn't she?" Russell said of his co-star. "There's a certain type of feminine sexuality that lingers beyond adolescence."
"I just kind of let it wash over me a bit," said Helen, who continued to explain that her fans keep her grounded, saying, "Sometimes I see people in the supermarket checkout line looking at me going, 'No, that can't be her. She must look better than that.'"
'Arthur' opens Friday, April 8.
'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe chatted with "The Insider" following his opening night performance in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway Sunday, reminiscing about the simpler time in which the story is set.
"It's kind of fun to be playing someone who is so shamelessly ambitious," said Daniel, who plays the opportunistic J. Pierpont Finch in the stage production. "It's from a much more innocent time in the history of the U.S. and the world... It was a time when there was no shame in being this ambitious."
Daniel's Broadway debut was in Peter Shaffer's Equus, a play which famously called for the actor to be nude on stage for a portion of the story, and Daniel admitted that this production was a welcome change of pace, especially for the young fan base that might know him from the 'Harry Potter' movies.
"It's a great show and I think everyone can kind of enjoy it," Daniel said. "It's nice, as well, to be doing something that is suitable for everybody so that everyone can come and see it."

The sun broke through the rain clouds Sunday morning as Josh Duhamel and Fergie sprinted for a cause at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica.
Inspired by the devastation faced by the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, actor Josh once again partnered with the American Red Cross, following up with his fundraiser last year for Haiti. "When I saw some of those images come out of Japan, I'd never seen anything like it," he said compassionately.
It was a close call for Fergie and her band The Black Eyed Peas, who were in Japan to shoot a video a mere week before disaster struck. "Leaving there we had such a positive vibe and then this happened," she said. "We were all tripping out that we were just there in Japan. It was just a wonderful chance for us to give a love letter back to Japan."
Fergie graciously celebrated her birthday with the "gift of giving." A more traditional party took place Friday night in Las Vegas. What does she hope to accomplish in her 36th year? Dianna Agron would "love" to have the "Fergalicious" singer as a guest on "Glee."
Nicky Hilton really feels for the residents of Japan. "Japan is one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited," she asserted. Sister Paris Hilton explained they've been doing business with the country since they were teenagers and have employees and friends they're concerned about.
Despite the inclement weather, Josh was pleased with the turnout and hopeful that the effort could surpass last year's donations. T-shirt sales alone have yielded $90,000 thus far. If you're interested in supporting the relief efforts in Japan, Josh recommends you visit reliefrun.com.
Comedy Central and MTV Networks honored the funniest actors, directors, writers and stand-up comedians last night at the first annual Comedy Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Guest such as Jon Cryer and Chloë Moretz were in attendance and the many funny men and women met the event with appreciation and comedic undertones.
"It's very nice of Comedy Central to do this,” Jon Stewart said. "Not a lot of people throw a party for just comedians."
Will Ferrell gave his take on how to compare this night to other awards shows on the red carpet. "I think they’re happy with settling for the ACE Cable Awards of comedy," the funnyman quipped. "If they get that, they can build up to being the Oscars of comedy."
Also on hand was Tracy Morgan, who gave his take on comedy and its limits. "Really funny people don't have boundaries," the "30 Rock" star commented. "If you have boundaries, to me, you're not funny."
While on the subject of no boundaries, Stephen Colbert spoke on the notion of limits in regards to George Lopez’s assault on Kirstie Alley. "That's not nice, that's not nice at all," Colbert stated. "He shouldn't do that. She's a lady."
