Celebrity Apprentice 2011: Who is Niki Taylor and why is she famous? Celebrity Apprentice 2011! Who is Niki Taylor and why is she famous? [Mar. 13] A Florida native (one of the few these days) and supermodel, Niki Taylor, of Fort Lauderdale, FL, lost her younger model sister, Krissy Taylor, to ventricular dysplasia in 1995. Niki has supported the HollyRod Foundation, modeling for fashion shows to benefit the foundation, and she has been a member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet. Niki’s chosen charity for her battle on Celebrity Apprentice is the American Red Cross. From the time she became a model at the age of 13 Niki Taylor was a hit, reports RobotCeleb.Com. She was on the cover of Seventeen when she was 14 and on the cover of Vogue at 15. In 1996 she set a record by appearing on the covers of six major women’s fashion magazines at the same time. Niki Taylor was once known as one of the hottest supermodels in the world. Tragedy struck again, though, forever changing her life. In 2001 she was critically injured in an automobile accident when her boyfriend at the time dropped his cell phone and took his eyes off the road. The couple hit a utility pole and the green celebrity was left unconscious for six weeks and bedridden for a month after she awoke. She endured 56 different surgeries during her recovery. Also, according to RobotCeleb.Com, in 2007 Niki Taylor sued the E! Entertainment Network for slander and emotional distress. They did a profile on her promising to promote her success along with struggles from the accident, but instead they misrepresented her as a failure whose life had been filled with tragedy. She settled that suit out of court. More good news and green gossip on this [...]

Celebrity Apprentice 2011: Who is Meat Loaf and why is he famous? Celebrity Apprentice 2011! Who is Meat Loaf and why is he famous? [Mar. 13] Rocker and actor Meat Loaf (Marvin Lee Aday) is probably best known for his Grammy Award-winning song I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).

In 2007, he auctioned an autographed guitar to benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The show premiered in 2008 on the 101 Network, a network exclusive to DirecTV customers. Each team of contestants plays for its chosen charity. Meat Loaf has offered several stories about how he got his famous name, but most sources confirm that his father teased him about his weight when he was young, calling the green celebrity "Meat". Supposedly the "Loaf" was added in high school. It should come as no surprise that Meat Loaf might exaggerate the origins, though. He is well known for his operatics. Asked about his age, and whether he was born in 1947 or 1951, the green celebrity famously replied: "1951. I have it on my passport and driving license. [I said 1947 in my autobiography] because I just wanted to maintain a constant lie. I was born in 1951 but see what a great thing it is, because everybody asks me? And I can keep it up - I can tell you I was born in 1952. Names and ages piss me off. So I just continually lie." More good news and green gossip on this [...]
