While many viewed all of the speculation about his next career move as merely a publicity stunt, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports that Donald Trump has decided to take the plunge: Despite receiving a personal call from producer Mark Burnett, the real-estate mogul will not renew his contract with NBC for The Apprentice. “Nobody in the history of television has turned down a renewal,” boasted senior Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski. “But Mr. Trump can do that.” Obviously, this is troubling news for anyone thinking of running for president in 2016. Now competing on Dancing With the Stars is basically their only option for launching a post-candidacy career in reality television.
