Arnold Schwarzenegger quits The Celebrity Apprentice, blames Donald Trump for low ratings

 

 

US actor and politician, Arnold Schwarzenegger has ‘terminated’ his ties with “The New Celebrity Apprentice.”   In a new statement, the former California governor said he will not be returning to host the reality program, which was once hosted for a longtime by the now US President, Donald Trump. He said:

“I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage”.

The “baggage”Schwarzenegger refers to, is the constant taunting he received from Donald Trump, who frequently as President of the United States – criticized Schwarzenegger and The New Celebrity Apprentice’s lagging ratings on Twitter.

 
 

On February 3rd,Trump tweeted, “Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice … but at least he tried hard!”

In an interview with Empire, Schwarzenegger blamed Trump’s interference and badmouthing (as a producer on the series) for the ratings dive. He said:

“It’s not about the show, because everyone I ran into came up to me and said ‘I love the show. .. but I turned it off because as soon as I read Trump’s name, I’m outta there”. “When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people started boycotting it.”

Before he quit the show, he told Empire magazine that even if he got invited back to the reality show, he wouldn’t accept . He said:

“With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show,” he said. “It’s a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division.”

Trump had repeatedly taunted Schwarzenegger for the show’s drop in ratings, going so far as to ask for prayers for him during the National Prayer Breakfast:

“They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went down the tubes,” Trump said. “I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings.”

The Feb. 13 season finale of “Celebrity Apprentice” attracted 3.45 million live viewers, a steep drop from the 6.1 million who tuned in for Trump’s last season finale on the show in 2015

Estimated 3m Nigerians Lost N18bn to MMM – NDIC

While delivering a speech at the 38th Kaduna International Trade Fair on Thursday, the Managing Director of Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC)Umaru Ibrahim said that about 3 million Nigerians lost N18bn to money-doubling scheme Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox (MMM).
 
Ibrahim who was represented by the Deputy Director Corporate Affairs, Hadi Suleiman lamented that Nigerians still patronise the scheme even after repeated warnings by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the corporation.
 
He stressed that the creation, usage, and usage of Ponzi schemes and all forms of virtual currencies – Bitcoin, Ripples, Monero, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Onecoin – as currencies or media of exchange are Internet-based transactions and are not authorised by the CBN due to the risks involved in their operations.
He cautioned that any person or groups of persons who invest their money in the Ponzi scheme does so at their own risk.
“The Ponzi scheme is the phenomenon of illegal fund managers, popularly called ‘Wonder Banks’ which have continued to defraud unsuspecting members of the public of their hard earned money. This phenomenon has been a source for concern because despite our repeated warnings over the years, some members of the public have continued to fall victims of their fraudulent practices.
We would like to reiterate the fact that these fund managers are illegal as they are neither licences by the CBN to take deposits from members of the public not are those who patronise them covered by the NDIC deposit insurance scheme.  I want to also draw the attention of some cooperative society which often go beyond their primary mandate by accepting contributions from members as cooperative societies are only recognised to mobilise savings from their members,” he said.

Don’t Tell People Your Dreams/Goals. Show Them.

It is a common practice that when people have goals or dreams. They will start babbling and broadcasting it to everyone. Some people believe that when they broadcast it more, it motivates them more to reaching their finishing line.

Honestly, this sometimes might back fires and can lead to shame and mockery. If failure arises you will begin to have many questions to answer to all the people you had told.

Babbling about your dreams and goals sometimes, might make you less likely to achieve them. Frankly speaking, it is better to keep quiet and succeed, people will want you to show them the result rather than broadcasting and babbling them. This can be seem as a false accomplishment.

Why  not sharing your goals and dreams  will be the best,  it will save you from people’s negative opinions and distractions that might comes from naysayers. Close your damn mouth.

If you must talk make sure it is a trusted and reliable friend, and make sure it is not someone who is seeing you as competition.  Be wise,  just because you think you trust someone doesn’t mean the person is trustworthy. Many people have suffered in regrets for opening up to someone they thought was trustworthy.

Best way, instead of telling people your goals,you can surround yourselves with people who have attained that goal, this will help you and facilitates your growth towards attaining your goals.
