Ever since NBC and Donald Trump parted ways, fans of The Celebrity Apprentice have been left to wonder who would be filling the presidential candidate's shoes as the host of the reality competition. But now, sources close to the show say the right man for the job just might be a woman, and they know just which one they want -- human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney!

The British barrister was relatively unknown before she married actor George Clooney, but since being thrust in the spotlight, she has captured the adoration of the public with her professional prowess as well as her keen sense of style.

“Basically we want Amal, although there are a couple of other prominent women in contention," a television executive told Express. Amal, who has been working as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School, has already been spending a good amount of time in New York where The Celebrity Apprentice is filmed. "We think she could be a perfect fit, if her schedule can be made to dovetail with shooting requirements.”


Sources close to Amal say that she is keen on the idea of filming in New York City, and that she has the support of her friends as well as her husband should she decide to take the job.

“As well as the cachet of being married to George, she is also a highly respected figure in her field," the television executive said. "And, since she rarely says anything in public, there is still something of an air of mystery to her."
