Donald Trump said sparks will fly this season when "The Celebrity Apprentice" returns on Sunday night.

When asked on Thursday's Access Hollywood Live who the villains are in the new season, Trump did not single out notorious "Real Housewives of New Jersey" table-flipper Teresa Guidice, nor did he call out mob daughter Victoria Gotti.

"We have an interesting combination. You have Lisa Lampanelli... first of all she's a great character and a great person, but she's nasty and she's got that mouth that you two know about," Donald told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover as he appeared on the show via satellite from New York City.

Donald went on to explain that on this season of the show, Lisa spars with pageant beauty Dayana Mendoza.

"She goes after -- we have Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, who's one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen, and she's a huge celebrity in South America in particular. She was from Venezuela. She was Miss Venezuela, became Miss Universe, and Lisa Lampanelli doesn't like her," he explained. "Why she doesn't like her? That's a long story, but she doesn't like her and those two go at it and actually, it's amazing to see it. You sort of have opposites. It's going to be great."

As for Victoria, Donald spars with her in an early episode this season, and he revealed he might ask for a little help if he has to fire the daughter of late mob boss John Gotti.

"If I fire her - she doesn't get fired [in episode 1], I'll tell you that, I'll reveal that, but when I fire her, if I fire her, it's going to take a great deal of courage. I'm going to call you, Billy, for protection," he said.
