Donald Trump plans on announcing a 2012 Presidential Election-related press conference during the season finale of "Celebrity Apprentice"

Whoever wins "The Celebrity Apprentice" this year may find themselves working for a 2012 Presidential candidate.

Donald Trump - who has been toying with a run for President (much to the annoyance of Bill Cosby) - claims he will announce during the NBC series' May 22nd season finale plans for a press conference that will announce his candidacy.

Earlier this week, Trump faced accusation from the Wall Street Journal that using his reality show to announce his run for president was little more than a ratings stunt.

"I don't need to do this for ratings on 'The Apprentice," Trump told the Journal. "This is too important. Our country is in trouble. Our country is not being properly led. It needs help."

Here's hoping NeNe Leakes or John Rich don't mind having their potential victory overshadowed in a huge way.
