He won’t be back.

James Dyer, Empire Online:

Fans of Celebrity Apprentice are about to lose the show’s biggest asset as Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be returning to host another season of the show…

“It’s not about the show,” he explained. “because everyone I ran into came up to me and said ‘I love the show… but I turned it off because as soon as I read Trump’s name I’m outta there!'”…

“When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people [started] boycotting it.”

Okay, never mind.

A couple of months ago, I predicted that Celebrity Apprentice‘s ratings would improve. I said that the feud was just a publicity stunt, and that Trump knew exactly what he was doing.

Once again, I was wrong!
