Things are already getting rowdy at The New Celebrity Apprentice, and it’s only two episodes in. After its debut last week, the original host of the show, and current president-elect, Donald Trump slammed the new host Arnold Schwarzenegger in tweets, seeming to blame the shows lower ratings on The Terminator’s election choices.
A week later, and drama on the set rears it’s ugly head. A televised fight between 80’s pop icon Boy George and ex-Motley Crue singer Vince Neil almost came to blows, according to a fellow contestant. MMA star Chael Sonnen told TMZ Sports.
“Those guys had real-life heat,” Sonnen said. “They had a real life confrontation. It was a fight. It was verbal but it was escalating very quickly.”
The fight started when George, a recovering alcoholic, confronted his cast mate about his drinking wine in the studio where they were working on their challenge.
“I do not need to be in the room with someone drinking alcohol,” he said. “It’s just not a good look for me. I’m not happy about it at all.”
“You can’t put your sobriety on everybody else,” Neil countered.
When it seemed the argument would turn violent, Sonnen says the show producers stepped in to break it up. “Production thought it was too hot for TV. They came in, turned their microphones off and shut the cameras down.”
