The immoral of this story: Bed a married athlete and bam! You’ve booked yourself a cushy seat on the reality-TV gravy train.
Donald Trump has propositioned Rachel Uchitel – aka the first mistress of golf great Tiger Woods to reveal herself – saying that she would be an “awesome” addition to the next ‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ cast.
Trump tells TMZ that his camp called Uchitel three weeks ago “and asked if she was going to take the offer, and she said, ‘Absolutely’”
UPDATE: Soon after Trump’s overture, Uchitel accepted a big-bucks offer to battle her assorted demons on VH1′s ‘Celebrity Rehab.’ As a result, Trump rescinded his offer, telling TMZ, “We have zero interest in her now.”
Listen, it’s low-hanging fruit of course to mock Donald and ‘The Apprentice’s increasingly broad definition of “celebrity,” but don’t you have to think that this is casting too wide a net?
Before the next ‘celeb’ edition rolls around, NBC will bring back the original, regular-folk ‘Apprentice’ this fall, airing Thursdays at 10/9c.
