Piers Morgan readies for his return to "The Celebrity Apprentice"

As the first-ever winner of NBC's hit reality program "Celebrity Apprentice," Piers Morgan holds a special place in the heart of Donald Trump, the show's creator, and ultimate decision-maker.

As such, the man known by his contestants as simply "Mr. Trump" has invited his first-ever celeb. champ to serve as an "advisor" on the upcoming sixth season.

Premiering this Sunday at 9 p.m., the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host will join fellow former winners Arsenio Hall, Joan Rivers, and John Rich in guiding a cast of returning All-Stars that includes the likes of Lil Jon, Stephen Baldwin, Gary Busey, and the infamous Omarosa.

In advance of this weekend's debut, on Tuesday, Trump joined late-night host Jimmy Fallon, sharing some details about Morgan's return:

"Piers is great. Piers came back, and they went at it," said Trump, referring to Morgan's legendary feud with Omarosa, a woman voted "the most evil person in the history of reality television."

Describing it as "something that I don't think we've ever had to that extent on 'The Apprentice,'" Trump watched as Fallon rolled a clip from the upcoming first episode.

Seated across from the table in the show's famed boardroom, Morgan says of his Season One nemesis:

"It's great to see Omarosa, it really is. Seriously. It's really heartwarming to see such a delightful creature in her natural habitat."

In response, the 39-year-old former political consultant reverted to old-school insults:

"Your mama should know, Piers. Your mama should know."

After being reminded by Morgan that his new role would have him judging her, and not competing with her, she seemed hardly concerned:

"Who cares! Donald makes the ultimate decision. Don't get it twisted!"

Watch the clip, and hear much more about the season premier of the highly successful reality show, and then tune in for the first episode Sunday evening.

    The comedian on Piers who is talking about the Catholic church is making a lot more sense than anyone I've ever heard on tv talking about Catholicism. The Catholic faith believes that Jesus created a Church to interpret and teach the faith and guided by the Holy Spirit. Martin Luther and his Protestant reformation opposed that. They believe it is up to the individual. As a result, if you think the Church's teachings on moral and faith issues are wrong than you are not really a Catholic, you are a Protestant. It might sound a bit insulting to the majority of modern Catholics who are really just Protestants.

    Do they let you self righteously pontificate on Celebrity Apprentice? Why does this guy have guests on? Don't they just take up time that he could be talking?

    I saw this guy for the first time yesterday. Now I know why my friend calls him the Hannity of CNN. His integrity level is about the same.

    Also I believe that mesothelioma cancer is a exceptional form of most cancers that is typically found in those people previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous cells form inside mesothelium, which is a shielding lining which covers the majority of the body's bodily organs. These cells ordinarily form from the lining on the lungs, mid-section, or the sac that really encircles one's heart. Thanks for giving your ideas.

    This whole scenario is just rich. Pierce returns to Donald's show despite the political backfire he received from Donald over Morgan's appropriately questioning the GOP delegates for the 2012 election. Interesting that he is put up against Omarosa, his previous nemesis on Trumps's show. Also interesting that Omarosa is even there on the show despite her miserable productivity on her first round on the show. Could it have anything to do with Trump and Omarosa doing a show together on TVOne called The Ultimate Merger? This woman has no admirable skills. She started an education through the united theological society but eventually received a preacher's license from her baptist church in L.A. Well, I have received a minister's license from the web with no training and I would attribute Omarosa's to be just bout as ethical and genuine. By her practices, one would not think of her acting out in the name or best interest of God.
    The new Apprentice show appears to be just another Attempt by Donald to keep certain characters in order to get b
    The greatest show followers for a salicious, exciting show. This also benefits Donald in his business affairs because it keeps Donald's business and pressence in the media. Omarosa honestly comes across S the worst manipulative, conniving, self-serving nd empty person on the show. I feel Donald is protecting certin celebrities for ratings and to keep viewer interest rather than looking at true business talents. I work in healthcare and Omarosa would be seen as a fake very quickly and her value system would quickly reveal her Work as being counterproductive to the efforts and value system that our healthcare system has set in place.
    Basically I am saying Donald can keep letting her stay on the show but the intelligent And professional general public can see that Omarosa would ever make it in a real industry and corporation simply because her fake, self-serving agenda would be seen as so ridiculous that she would immediately be seen as not a good fit for any serious companie's goals to reach out to the mass public. Thank God this is just a show
    and it doesn't really mean anything in the real world where professionals are exactly that, real professionals with real values. But to Donald, we understand you keeping her on your show for juicy controversial show ratings.
