Trump rescinds Rachel Uchitel’s Apprentice invite, calling Celebrity Rehab “a bad mistake”

Rachel Uchitel is part of the new cast on Celebrity Rehab, but she won’t be on The Celebrity Apprentice 4 because Donald Trump thinks the fame that comes from his show is far more important than one that’s about something trivial like sobriety.

“Look at what ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ did for Piers Morgan. He’s getting Larry King’s job. She made a bad mistake,” Trump told TMZ. “‘Celebrity Apprentice’ is a huge show and ‘Celebrity Rehab’ is not. I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available. I’m moving on.
