 Grammy award-winning musical artist and actress Tia Carrere is a woman of many talents, but in Donald Trump’s boardroom she is just one of 18 celebrities fighting to come out on top.

Her career in acting includes roles in film, animated series and television. Carrere is perhaps best know for her role as a foxy babe on “Wayne’s World” and her career-launching role as a nurse on “General Hospital.”

She’ll now have an opportunity to show her business survival skills in Donald Trump’s boardroom alongside celebs like reality star Teresa Giudice, Victoria Gotti, Lisa Lampanelli, and others.

Hawaii born Carrere appears in “The Celebrity Apprentice,” where contestants are divided into two teams to compete for $250,000, which will go to a charity of their choice.

Carrere joins fellow Asian American actor George Takei on the show that will test celebs through a series of challenges. The first task on “The Celebrity Apprentice” challenged the celebs to make and sell deli sandwiches, all to raise money for charity. But like most challenges, one celeb on the losing team had to go home. This time it was Cheryl Tiegs.

The competition heats up on the Feb. 26 episode when celebs get medieval. In their next task celebs will perform a live performance at Medieval Times. Who will be fired by Trump next?

The Pacific Citizen caught up with Carrere, who is in the process of producing a biographical movie about Hawaiian surf legend Rell Sunn, to get the inside skinny on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Read her Q&A with Pacific Citizen here.
