Meat Loaf, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray and John Rich of country duo Big & Rich were among the celebrities selling pies at Famiglia’s Pizza in downtown New York on Tuesday (Oct. 19). The stunt, which attracted a growing crowd of onlookers throughout the day, was part of a television shoot widely rumored to be for the upcoming season of Donald Trump‘s NBC reality franchise, “Celebrity Apprentice.” Lil Jon stood outside the pizzeria and held up signs promoting the sale of the “celebrity” pizza, with the proceeds for each pie going to charity.
