Martha’s Apprentice wraps production, will have “totally different rules”

Martha Stewart’s version of The Apprentice finished production last week, according to the New York Post. It’ll be edited this summer and air in the fall.

Despite sharing a name with Donald Trump’s show, the new version has “totally different terminology and a different look than The Donald [version],” according to an “insider.” That means no boardroom or firing. That person also says the show has “totally different rules and regulations.”

Another difference: the source says two of the contestants are openly gay.
