Apprentice TV Show Contestant Offers Britney Spears Advice

Britney Spears has been offered free legal representation by divorce lawyer and one-time The Apprentice contestant Stacy Schneider. Schneider - who appeared on season five of Donald Trump's reality show - has stepped in after Spears' last law firm Trope & Trope asked to sever ties with the troubled star.
The 38-year-old has even offered to move into Spears' home as she helps her with her custody fight for her two sons Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James.
Schneider tells the New York Post, "I hope my offer to represent her at no charge is communicated to her."
And she discloses some of the advice she'd give the singer: "Number one, I would tell Britney to hibernate. She'll no longer be airing her personal business in public. She needs to stay inside and stop the Starbucks runs so that no more bad-behavior stories leak out. She has to stop mouthing off to the judge, she has to learn to control her emotions. She has to practice her testimony.
"She only has one shot to win back her kids and she's not able to lip-synch her way through her testimony. What Britney's doing now is showing everyone that she's irresponsible or just doesn't care."

Apprentice TV Show Pushed Back One Week

NBC has decided to hold off on the show's premiere a week, pushing it back from Jan. 3 to Jan. 10. Its timeslot -- 9 p.m. ET Thursdays -- and everything else about the show remains the same.The move will protect the show from a couple of other likely big ratings draws on Jan. 3. FOX broadcasts college football's Orange Bowl that night, and ABC is slated to air the last original "Grey's Anatomy" completed before the writers' strike.It also extends the "Apprentice" run one more week into the spring, when -- barring a strike settlement -- supplies of original programming will be getting pretty thin.

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump hired the 33-year-old to oversee construction and development for his new Dominican Republic project, Cap Cana. Named a Super Lawyers Young Rising Star in both 2006 and 2007 in Los Angeles, Stefanie is all brains and beauty. She graduated from UC Riverside with a double major in English and Psychology in 1996 and earned her doctorate at Southwestern University School of Law. Working for a California law office, she defended employers against workers’ compensation claims and defended real-estate developers in construction defect litigation. No wonder “The Donald” told me she’s “an amazing woman!”

But now she’s bringing that style and business savvy to Vegas. Donald has agreed to her request to move her from the Caribbean to Vegas as VP of marketing for his Trump International Hotel and Tower which opens fully in April opposite Fashion Show Mall on the Strip. Ironically, Stefanie, who is getting married next Spring, had to create a marketing program for Donald’s Vegas dream on the TV show—and now she’s getting the opportunity to execute it for real.

“I could not be more excited to be putting that plan into action. I just had to be a part of it,” she said. “We’re bringing a new level of luxury and sophistication to the Strip and I’m looking forward to getting to know Vegas better and becoming a true member of the community.”

The talented tycoon-to-be herself will oversee Trump’s residents and signature restaurants, his Spa and Salon, a business center and meeting facilities. Stefanie will ensure that the 24-hour concierge is always on duty for guests and residents, and the doormen and valet parking all keep their white gloves spotless at all times! Her Apprentice gig ends in April and it will be up to The Donald and The Stefanie to negotiate any longer stays in town!.
