Celebrity Apprentice premieres tonight with a new formidable presence in the boardroom.
The new boss in charge, Arnold Schwarzenegger, greets the cast in a sneak peek preview — and gets right down to business. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills player, Kyle Richards, shares her impression of her new reality boss.
“The second that Governor Schwarzenegger walks in the room, everything stops,” the Bravoleb says. “He’s just a powerhouse and it’s intimidating. This is my new boss!”
Schwarzenegger has giant shoes to fill, stepping into those vacated by the incoming President of the United States, Donald Trump.
“I plan to be tough but fair,” Arnold tells the new board members. “I want you all to fight like hell to make sure the dreams of your charities come true. Now, you’re all part of my start up company and your job is to help some of the top companies with some of their business challenges, but at the same time raise a lot of money for your charity. My job is to terminate you one by one!”
