Claudia Jordan fired on 'Celebrity Apprentice'

NEW YORK, March 25 (UPI) -- Model Claudia Jordan has become the latest contestant fired on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" in New York.

Jordan got the ax on Sunday night's episode of the business-themed competition series after her team failed to develop a compelling marketing campaign for Farouk Shami's hair care products.

Celebrities previously eliminated from the show this season are rockers Dee Snider and Bret Michaels and singer LaToya Jackson.

Still in the competition are Omarosa Manigault, Gary Busey, Lil' Jon, Lisa Rinna, Dennis Rodman, Trace Adkins, Brande Roderick, Penn Jillette, Marilu Henner and Stephen Baldwin.


Will Smith says he turned down Django because it wasn't a lead role

LOS ANGELES, March 25 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Will Smith says he turned down the chance to play the title character in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" because the role wasn't the lead.

The pre-American Civil War film was a Best Picture Oscar nominee, with Jamie Foxx playing the title character, a former slave on a journey to reunite with his wife.

Writer-director Tarantino earned the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, while Foxx's co-star Christoph Waltz won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role of Django's gun-slinging partner.

"Django wasn't the lead, so it was like: 'I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead,'" Smith told EW.com.

"I was like, 'No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!'"

Smith said he liked the way the film ultimately turned out, however.

"I thought it was brilliant," he told EW.com. "Just not for me."
