LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Combine “The Celebrity Apprentice” Season 4 cast with a Sin City nightclub and what do you get? Gary Busey dancing on a pole.
Gary, along with “Apprentice” castmates Lil Jon, NeNe Leakes and Hope Dworzczyk hit up Encore’s Surrender Nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday night to celebrate the launch of the hit NBC reality show.
The group partied in style, while Lil Jon commandeered the DJ booth. “Apprentice” boss Donald Trump made an appearance via video at the swanky celebration, telling the crowd, “Ladies and gentleman this is Donald Trump. My man from ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ Lil Jon is on the turntable. If you’re not partying, your a** is fired!”
Gary, however, devised his own means of entertaining the crowd.
With a cigar planted firmly between his teeth, the 66-year-old actor leapt onto a dancing platform to give pole dancing a whirl for the onlookers before speaking out about his pal, Charlie Sheen
“Charlie is in a tailspin,” Gary, who has appeared on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” told People at the Vegas bash. “Charlie’s got to understand what the truth is. The beautiful thing about the truth is that it requires no questions.”
The former Hollywood bad boy said he’s known the “Two and a Half Men” star for 30 years and hopes Charlie can transcend his recent difficulties.
“I want Charlie to get up out of the mud and reclaim his life and I’m praying for him,” Gary told the mag. “The advice I have for him is to look at himself and the truth in his heart, because what he’s doing is not true to his heart.”
Catch all of “The Celebrity Apprentice” action when the fourth season premieres on Sunday at 9PM on NBC.
