After another week of madness on his hit show "The Celebrity Apprentice," Donald Trump met up with The Insider and touched on Gary Busey's unavoidable exit. Despite his willingness to work with the troubled contestant, Trump felt his time came to a close. "We just love Gary, but in the end I have to do what's fair and what's right and I said, 'Gary, you're fired.' "
Trump spoke on a gamut of different talking points, from his claim of being a bigger businessman than fellow Republican Mitt Romney to his displeasure with President Barack Obama's hesitance to provide a birth certificate. During his confessions, one thing remained clear: the real estate tycoon still seems to have his sights set to take the helm and steer one of the greatest countries on earth in the right direction.
"If I decide to run and if I win, I will be a great president and the world will know the United States is great again."

The Insider's correspondent Kevin Frazier caught up with a very pregnant Kate Hudson, and the cast of 'Something Borrowed' to discuss love, relationships, and betrayal for their highly-anticipated new film.
Now, it's a bit of a stretch of the imagination to picture the charming and bubbly Kate Hudson as a self-absorbed, morally-questionable party girl, but the actress admits she enjoyed exploring her new role as "bad girl," Darcy. She confessed playing the character "was fun" explaining, "that's what I do for a living."
Ginnifer Goodwin plays Kate's consummate good-girl best friend Rachel, who after a night of drinking on Rachel's thirtieth birthday, sleeps with her best friend's fiancé, Dex, played by silver screen newcomer, Colin Egglesfield. The actress confesses she was involved in a similar circumstance. She explains, "best friend in high school kissed [her] boyfriend, and that was enough [for her] to cease being friends with her completely." She says, coming from the experience, she would never put herself in Rachel's shoes because "her girlfriends are far more important to [her] than any guy."
Cast mate John Krasinski had an excellent time opposite Kate, calling her "awesome," "a consummate professional," and "one of the main reasons for doing the movie."
Check out the trailer and some behind the scenes footage for 'Something Borrowed' right here, and make sure to mark your calendars for the films National release on May 6, 2011.

After their duet on the Grammy's stage in February, there has been speculation about Cee Lo and Gwyneth Paltrow recording an original song together and we got Cee Lo to dish on the subject on Saturday.
"[Gwyneth] did me such a great favor by coming along and joining in with me for the Grammys that if she asked me to do something or if this rumor of her having a record deal is true and she reaches out to me, of course [I would work with her]," Cee Lo said.
The soulful musician is now starring in the new reality series "The Voice," which debuts April 26 on NBC, but he explained that the show isn't your average singing competition.
"These are blind auditions that we're doing," said Cee Lo. "We don't see them. We don't know them. We know nothing about these people. All that we can go off of is the way that they make us feel."
Cee Lo revealed that he believes his new show co-starring Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine is bringing music back to basics, saying the lately the music industry has focused on "product over passion."
"You have to have your priorities in a different order," said Cee Lo. "It should be vice versa. Quality should be your first concern."
Another major difference separating "The Voice" from every other vocal competition is that it features coaches as opposed to judges.
"Ultimately we do not judge," Cee Lo announced. "It is about the encouragement, the mentoring, the nurturing of a very potential star."
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson were the ringleaders of fandemonium at the New York premiere of 'Water for Elephants' on Sunday.
After stopping to sign autographs, Reese said, "I think it's incredible because as movie actors we sort of work isolated and we don't get to see fans as often, so it's a nice experience to actually get to meet some of them and know they're excited for the film."
Smiling from ear to ear, newlywed Reese is excited to watch the early morning vows of Kate Middleton and Prince William. What advice does she have for the bride-to-be? "She's called me a lot and our conversations are super private, so I couldn't really talk about it on television," she joked.
Englishman Robert thinks the time of the ceremony in his native country should be "catered for the audience."
The big top gets pitched when 'Water for Elephants' opens in theaters on April 22.
On April 17, 2000 Oprah Winfrey held a party to celebrate the premiere issue of her new endeavor, O Magazine.

Gayle King, Stedman Graham, Martha Stewart, and Rosie O'Donnell were just a few of the high profile names in attendance at the party.
