TV briefs: To Trump loser, Danza says "You're hired"
"Apprentice" contestant Ereka Vetrini has signed on to be show announcer and sidekick on the new syndicated offering "The Tony Danza Show."
Vetrini will introduce each day's show and will stick around to discuss events, happenings and cultural tidbits with the "Who's the Boss" and "Taxi" star. She'll also be a lead correspondent for the show, going to premieres and red-carpet events.
Although she was one of the early stars on "The Apprentice," Vetrini is probably best remembered for her feud with the volatile contestant Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, who accused Vetrini of using racial slurs. Vetrini strongly denied the charges.
Actress in "Men's Room"
Sitcom veteran Kate Walsh is the latest addition to the cast of NBC's midseason comedy "The Men's Room." Walsh's addition continues the casting shakeup for the comedy since its original pilot. Brian Skala ("Just Deal") has already replaced Eric Lively.
The show stars Scott Cohen ("Gilmore Girls"), John Cho ("Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle") and Skala as three men who meet up each week at work to try to make sense of their lives.
Walsh has had recurring roles on shows including "The Fugitive," "The Drew Carey Show" and "Karen Sisco." She also appeared in the Diane Lane romance "Under the Tuscan Sun."
