Hasta la vista, baby!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is stepping down as the host of Celebrity Apprentice after just one season, he announced today.
"I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone — from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department — was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn't have this baggage," he said in a statement.
His departure was preceded by an ongoing feud between him and previous host-turned-President Donald Trump. The actor and the POTUS frequently butted heads via social media, and the real estate mogul blamed low ratings on the Terminator star.
Arnie claims DT is actually to blame!
"With Trump being involved in the show, people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period now, and I think this show got caught up in all that division," he said in an interview with Empire on Thursday.
