Johnny Weir Had to Quit Celebrity Apprentice Because of Victor Voronov SplitJOHNNY Weir has been forced to drop out of Donald Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice this season.

The Olympic figure had to quit the program due to his bitter divorce drama with estranged husband Victor Voronov, RadarOnline reports.

“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,” a source said.

“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.

Weir recently claimed in legal documents filed in his ongoing divorce that he isn’t worth $10 million, lives in a rented apartment, drives a leased Lexus SUV and will not be appearing on the upcoming season of Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice.

“Johnny has also been put on ice by NBC….there were plans to develop a reality show with Johnny and Tara Lipinski,” said the source.

“The duo was a hit with their broadcasting from the Sochi Winter Olympics, but all of that is now on hold. This divorce is going to cost Johnny a lot of career opportunities, and that is truly sad for him.”

Bret Michaels Experiences A Meltdown After His Celebrity Apprentice Firing

Bret Michaels Experiences A Meltdown After His Celebrity Apprentice Firing

When Bret Michaels sauntered out of Trump Tower after being the first celeb Donald Trump fired on Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars Sunday night, he seemed to have taken his dismissal in rock star stride. As it turns out, the shock elimination sent Michaels into a breakdown and allegedly left him sobbing.

An insider source told RadarOnline that “Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired.” Aww…poor Bret! “It was a mess when Bret was told the news and filming was done,” the source says.

“He couldn’t stop crying and even the producers were trying to comfort him. No one expected him to have a meltdown like that.”

Michaels was the only previous winner to return to the show. As he told CBS’s The Talk in his own words yesterday, “I got hired big on this show, and I got fired big.” So perhaps he was suffering from a tiny bit of an inflated ego?

RadarOnline’s source concurs. “Bret totally went into the show believing he was going to win again,” the source said. “He couldn’t believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did.”

Cheer up, Bret! Maybe you didn’t win Celebrity Apprentice: All Stars, but you still rock a bandana better than anyone else – man or canine!

They’ve heard the dreaded “You’re Fired” before, but they’re back for more!

Celebrity Apprentice is back with its all-star season, giving fan favorites another shot at a $250,000 prize for the charity of their choice. Among the crop of 14 who’ll battle it out in the boardroom: Bret Michaels, Trace Adkins, Lil John, Marilu Henner, Lisa Rinna, La Toya Jackson, Gary Busey, Stephen Baldwin, Penn Jillette and Omarosa.

Show host Donald Trump and the new cast appeared on Friday’s Today show to talk about what’s in store for this season, which starts shooting Monday and will premiere in March 2013.

“So far it’s been very sweet and peaceful and calm, but that’s kind of scary,” Baldwin said. “I think we’ve got a couple of zingers coming. It should be very exciting.”

Poison frontman Michaels won the competition in 2010 in the midst of serious health problems. But he’s prepared to compete, and he’s stronger than ever.

“I was really sick, and this time I’m ready to come back, but being a lifelong diabetic, I’m ready,” he said.

Everyone’s getting a second chance.

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” Rinna said. “I didn’t really get a shot last time. I didn’t get to get my groove on, so let’s see. I don’t really know what I’m capable of.”
