Currently hosting her own radio show The Henner Show for GCN (Genesis Communications Network), Henner has previously hosted and executive produced two talk shows ("Marilu" and "Shape Up Your Life"), and has guest-starred on every major talk show, earning her the title "Talk Show Guest of the Year" several years in a row. As a two-time competitor on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" (Season 7, 2008) and "Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars" (Season 13, 2013), Henner made it to the Final Five and played for her favorite charities, including The Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and the Alzheimer's Association.
