Even before filming begins on seasontwo of the Celebrity Apprentice, Heather Mills has been fired! The former model and ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney, was let go by the NBC bosses due to a ridiculous clause she was demanding to be in her contract.
Heather was asking the executives to guarantee her a place in the final, regardless of how succesful she was during the rest of the show.
The business tycoon confirmed in June that Mills was bidding for a role on the series, a spin-off of The Apprentice, which sees celebrities work under the guidance of Donald Trump.
A source told Britain’s The Sun newspapers: “The network was originally very keen on getting her involved. But her demands were ludicrous and it soon became clear that getting her involved would be a headache. It was the final straw when she said she wouldn’t take part unless she was guaranteed a place in the final – even after it was explained that wasn’t how the show worked.”
NBC politely told Heather that they would not be following up their interest in her appearing on the show.
The second series of the show is set to begin recording this month and is scheduled for a premiere in January.
