View Comments ()




    World Wrestling Entertainment's Maria Kanellis, a native of Ottawa, Ill. -- and a veteran Playboy cover gal -- will appear on the upcoming season of "Celebrity Apprentice," where she'll compete against Rod Blagojevich.

    Besides Blago, the 27-year-old bicep-tual wrestler compete against a motley crew of lovable has-beens, including Sharon "Married to Ozzy" Osbourne, Bret "Hair doo rag" Michaels and Cyndi "Girls Just Wanna Have Their Career Back" Lauper.

    Kanellis lives in LA now, and she finished 5th in WWE's 2004 Diva search. If you'd like your day free from undies-shifting distractions, please don't check out the Diva photos here.

    Kanellis also appeared on the cover of Playboy in April 2008. She attended Northern Illinois University, where she majored in myocardial sonography. Ok, that's not true, but who cares!
