No “Celebrity Apprentice” for Martina Navratilova

There were various reports online that Martina Navratilova was going to be a part of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice – and Johnny Weir too.

I thought it would be interesting to have two famous gays on a show built around the famously three-times married Donald Trump who still goes around saying he’s against gay marriage.

I figured Martina would try and educate the man in the same way George Takei did a few seasons back.

So I sent the nine-time Wimbledon singles champ a tweet asking if she planned to help The Donald evolve on LGBT issues.

Martina tweet me back saying the story, picked up by multiple websites, is not true!

‘No, I am not doing The Apprentice,’ Martina tweeted. ‘False report.’

Okay, so what about Weir? I tweeted him too but have yet to hear back. His most recent tweet had nothing to do with Celebrity Apprentice though.

It read: ‘I need to get on the ice so badly! Gaining weight and eating cake every minute and need a major workout!’

2 Remarks

  1. Thank baby Jeebus. I was heartbroken when I read she would be on it. So glad she will NOT be appearing on that racist, homophobic, misogynistic, tea bagger’s show.

  2. It’s the dumbest show on television along with The Bachelor. I truly respect people who won’t do this awful show. The Trumps are rich, but money can’t buy class.
