Last year, during April, I saw Clay Aiken on television at least once a week. I also got to read a blog from him each week. April was good! It was great to see and hear from Clay each week even if it was Celebrity Apprentice.
Although I am not a fan of Celebrity Apprentice, there were lots of things that made it fun. One of the things I enjoyed was getting to know the other celebrities that were a part of the cast. I knew some of them for their work, others I knew only their name and they were a few I didn’t know at all.
I did know Dee Snider by name. I knew he was the lead singer of Twisted Sister, but I admit, I had never heard him sing. It was exciting to see what an intelligent, friendly, and caring man Dee is. It was fun to see that he and Clay Aiken became friends during the taping of Celebrity Apprentice.
- Dee was born on March 15, 1955 making him 58 years old.
- Snider has been married to his wife Suzette, a former Twisted Sister costume designer, since 1981. They have four children: Jesse, Shane, Cody, and Cheyenne.
- In June of 1999, Dee became a morning show radio host on WMRQ in Hartford, Connecticut. Dee Snider Radio aired for three years. He returned to radio in June 2006 with Fangoria Radio on Sirius Satellite Radio.
- In 1998, Dee tried his hand in the movies. He wrote and starred in a horror film titled Strangeland.
- In 1998 he wrote the song “The Magic of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)”, which was later recorded by none other than Celine Dion.
- Dee was also seen on Kitchen Nightmares, as well as being the host of DEAD ART and House of Hair. Snider and his family later starred in the reality show Growing Up Twisted and Celebrity Wife Swap.
One of my favorite things that Dee has done musically was to sing a duet with Clay Aiken. He included Clay in his duet album, Dee Does Broadway. The song, Luck Be A Lady Tonight was the most downloaded song on the album.
The talented SueReu put together a creative video that featured Dee and Clay’s recording of Luck Be A Lady Tonight. I hope you enjoy it!
Besides Clay, who was your favorite celebrity on Celebrity Apprentice last year?
