Johnny Weir Drops Out of Celebrity Apprentice

Well here’s some bummer news. Looks like Coatesville’s Johnny Weir has dropped out of this season of Celebrity Apprentice, citing his divorce as the cause. From radarlonline.com:

Johnny had indeed begun filming Celebrity Apprentice last week, but has been a no show on the set this week amidst the ongoing divorce drama with Victor [Voronov]. He felt all of the drama was going to detract from filming, and decided to quit. It was a hard decision for him to make because Johnny was very excited about doing the show, and has tons of respect for Donald Trump. Hopefully, the offer for him to appear on the show will be extended again in the future.

That leaves only one local celeb on this go-round of Trump’s annual shitshow: Kate Gosselin, which is just enough reason to tune in.

    Please stop using sites such as Radar Online as sources! This story is 100% false, just another attempt by Victor to destroy Johnny’s reputation and career with lies. Johnny’s sworn statements to the court specifically state that he did not ever sign with Celebrity Apprentice.

    Its a pity that Philly Mag is copying and pasting a site like Radar Online without doing even the most basic fact checking. Johnny’s rep denied the Celebrity Apprentice rumor long ago, before the divorce was ever announced. It’s all part of Victor Voronov’s attempt to make the court and his own representatives think Johnny has a lot more money than he really has. Radar depends on the word of Victor, a man with a history of arrest for DUI, theft, and battery, and his rep Wendy Feldman, who has spent time in prison for investment fraud, for their bogus reporting. Not very trustworthy sources IMO and it’s a shame Philly Mag doesn’t have higher standards.
