Carolyn, George were not part of The Apprentice 6 even before Carolyn was fired

Carolyn Kepcher was fired by Donald Trump just last week, but she will not appear in The Apprentice 6, which was filmed earlier this summer.

Carolyn is “not part of the cast,” according to the AP, just as George Ross also did not participate. Instead, it “includes Trump children Ivanka and Donald Jr.”

Meanwhile, Carolyn released one of those largely meaningless, non-confrontational statements about her dismissal, saying,

“After 11 years with the Trump Organization, Donald and I had different visions for my future role in the company. Donald has been an extraordinary boss and a great mentor over the years, and I will always be grateful for the opportunities and experiences he has provided me.”
