Webber “never agreed to do” Apprentice charity event, is “looking at legal action.”
One of the two Apprentice 2 cliffhangers we were left with Thursday involved Sacramento Kings player Chris Webber and whether or not he was going to show up for Jenn’s charity basketball game. Webber says that he never agreed to participate, and his “lawyers are looking at legal action now. There was never a part in the show. They wanted to entice me to come on there. But I said I really didn’t care about being on their show. So no, I never agreed to do it, and my people are upset that they tried to use my name to snare interest for their last show.” He adds, “that whole thing was staged.”
