Anthony Scaramucci, Ryan Lochte join cast

Anthony Scaramucci only lasted days at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but hopefully he’ll  fare better on “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.”

President Donald Trump’s former White House communications director is among the 12 celebrity house guests competing for $250,000 on the second season of the CBS reality show, which premieres Jan. 21.

Scaramucci, dubbed “The Mooch,” will follow in the footsteps of Omarosa Manigault Newman, who competed on the network’s first-ever “Celebrity Big Brother” after she was shown the door of the White House.

CBS unveiled the cast of the reality show’s upcoming season Sunday.

“This season’s cast includes Olympians, a former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL running back, a headline-making political strategist, a former teen heartthrob, a Grammy-nominated musician, a former WWE wrestler and an infamous houseguest, among others,” CBS said in a news release. 

The celebrity house guests include momager Dina Lohan, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, singers and reality TV stars Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss, “Blossom” actor Joey Lawrence, comedian Tom Green, “Mean Girls” actor Jonathan Bennett, former wrestler Natalie Eva Marie, former NFL player Ricky Williams, track and bobsled star Lolo Jones and Kato Kaelin, a famed witness during the O.J. Simpson trial.

Julie Chen will return as host following sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former CBS chief Les Moonves.
