Eager to hear someone say, “Kate Gosselin, you’re fired?” You may just get your chance!

The infamous mother of eight will join the cast of Celebrity Apprentice, which is returning to NBC on Jan. 4 before settling into its regular time slot on Mondays. The late Joan Rivers is also set to appear in two of the upcoming episodes. Since she won the second season, she will return as an advisor, as will Piers Morgan, Bret Michaels, John Rich, Arsenio Hall and Trace Adkins.

The rest of the cast of Season 7, which was unveiled on Today, includes musician Kevin Jonas, Deadliest Catch star Sig Hansen, Real Housewives stars Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore, actor Lorenzo Lamas, NFL player Terrell Owens, talk show host Geraldo Rivera, actor Ian Ziering, TV host Leeza Gibbons, Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, actress Vivica A. Fox, Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson, World Series champion Johnny Damon, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam and actor and comedian Gilbert Gottfried.

Naturally, Donald Trump will appear in the boardroom, along with his kids Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric.

Season 14 of The Apprentice was filmed earlier this year. The last time Celebrity Apprentice aired on NBC was from March to May last year.

In case you can’t wait until January, Gosselin and her brood can be seen in December, when TLC will air more installments of Kate Plus 8, which will feature Gosselin and her family traveling to Boston.
