Dennis Rodman fired from ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ over spelling mistake

 

Viewers got a whole lotta Dennis Rodman over the weekend. And by the looks of it, the former basketball star needs a good copy editor.

During the opening skit of Saturday Night Live — sending up Kim Jong Un — the North Korean ruler’s newest pal, 51, came on stage and screamed, “Live in New York, it’s Saturday night,” instead of “Live from New York...” Dennis, the show’s only been on air since 1975.

On Sunday night, Donald Trump fired Rodman from All Star Celebrity Apprentice for ticking off his wife. As project manager, Rodman signed off on an advertorial for Melania Trump’s skincare line that misspelled her name as “Milania.” Eek!

Welcome back

Wesley Snipes has been released from a federal prison in Pennsylvania.

The actor, convicted in 2008 on tax charges, was placed under home confinement. A Bureau of Corrections spokeswoman said he’ll be overseen by the New York Community Corrections Office until July. The Blade star entered the McKean prison in December 2010 to begin a three-year sentence for failure to file income tax returns. Snipes belonged to a group that challenged the government’s right to collect taxes. Prosecutors say he failed to file returns for at least a decade and owed millions of dollars. He had appealed in an Atlanta court, saying he didn’t get a fair trial.

Berry happy

Halle Berry and Michael Kors announced a philanthropic campaign Monday called Watch Hunger Stop that includes raising money through the sale of a version of Kors’ best-selling Runway watch.

The 46-year-old mother to be said in an exclusive joint interview with the AP: “I hope we go while I’m pregnant, so I can talk about prenatal care.”

“And I will have time off,” she said, patting her belly and smiling. “I’m not working right now.” Berry told CNN that she felt great. “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.” It is unclear whether Berry had medical assistance.
