NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice just wrapped up their latest season last month, and the good word is that Donald Trump has signed on for 2 more seasons. With rumors flying around the web, how much is Donald really making for the show? Read on to hear what NBC said!
Reports that recently surfaced saying that Donald Trump would making millions for the show are now being slated as untrue by NBC. The New York Post recently claimed that the business guru got a raise bringing his and producer Mark Burnett’s earnings to around $160 million, and of that, Trump would pocket about $65 million a year.
However, in a statement made to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC said: “The financial information reported today in regards to ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ is grossly inaccurate and has been significantly overstated.” Now, while they don’t normally discuss financial information, the network went on to reiterate how ridiculous that claim was when they added: “neither the production costs of the show nor what Mr. Trump makes personally is in the realm of reality.”
So what exactly does Mr. Trump make for the show? No one knows and honestly, I doubt anyone really cares. NBC also noted that they are looking forward to a new season with Trump and that Celebrity Apprentice will remain part of their prime time lineup.
