The Real Housewives of New York star, who is worth an estimated $25 million, transformed from a reality star into a superstar businesswoman with her entire collection of Skinnygirl products, ranging from low-calorie margaritas to protein bars to salad dressing. Meanwhile, Rodriguez, 41, who is currently dating Jennifer Lopez, owns A-Rod Corporation, which invests in a variety of real estate and businesses. The former Yankee is estimated to be worth about $300 million. 

Budding entrepreneurs will also get the chance to pitch to guest sharks Richard Branson (Virgin Group founder), Sara Blakely (Spanx founder) and Rohan Oza (a venture capitalist who has stakes in brands including Vitamin Water, Pop Chips and Vita Coco).
