You're hired! There's officially a new winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice," and we can finally add another female victor to the show's list.

"The winner of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' is... Leeza Gibbons!" said Donald Trump on "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Yes, during Monday night's live season finale, Leeza Gibbons became the second woman ever to be crowned "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Of course, the late, great Joan Rivers became the first when she snagged the title back in 2009.

And the media was just as thrilled as we were to see some good old fashioned girl power prevail on the show once again.

As a writer for Bustle put it, "It's about time another woman is recognized for her smarts, business skills, charitable endeavors, humility, among many other worthy qualities."

But as Leeza so perfectly put it before Donald Trump announced the winner, "Never underestimate a woman with passion who knows where she was going and what she wants." You go, girl!
