Here's the Scoop...

So I guess Arnold Schwarzenegger won't be back!

Arnold says he won't return for a second season as host of The Celebrity Apprentice.

Schwarzenegger took over NBC's business competition series after its creator and longtime star Donald Trump went on to run for and win the U.S. presidency. Trump is still listed as an executive producer of the series.

"I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone -- form 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," Schwarzenegger said in a statement Friday.

EW.com quoted NBC insiders as saying no decision has been made yet regarding whether it will renew The Celebrity Apprentice with a new host.

I'm sure that it'll be back. Probably with Harrison Ford as the host. And after the contestant gets fired they'll be put on a private jet and then Ford will say the catchphrase, "Get off my plane." Then somebody will slap a parachute on the contestant's back and then out they go. Hey, you'd watch that!

Be Well,
Steve

Ellen DeGeneres to host prime time game show for NBC
NBC says it has ordered six, hour-long episodes of a prime time game show hosted and executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres.

The program is called Ellen's Game of Games.

"I'm so excited to be hosting a huge, prime time game show for NBC," DeGeneres said in a statement Thursday. "We're pulling out all the stops -- gigantic sets, hilarious games. It's going to be like a combination of American Ninja Warrior, RuPaul's Drag Race and a water park. OK, it's nothing like that, but you should still watch."

"Ellen's impact as a daytime icon is unprecedented and we can't wait to see her bring that amazing spirit to Game of Games," added Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and reality group for NBC Entertainment. "She is among the very best at engaging with her devoted audience and we are all in for a treat when her antics hit primetime."

"Since establishing Warner Alternative Television over three years ago, some of our greatest successes have come from working with Ellen and her incredibly talented team," said Mike Darnell, president of Warner Bros.' unscripted and alternative television division. "But the dream has always been to get Ellen herself to say 'yes' to hosting a prime-time show. Now that she finally has, I am more than ecstatic. We've married a great concept to the best host in the business. Home run!"

Which rocker said that his ex-girlfriend, Meg Ryan, 'hates me to death'?

John Mellencamp says ex-girlfriend Meg Ryan hates him "to death."

The 65-year-old singer claimed on Wednesday's episode of The Howard Stern Show that the 55-year-old actress hasn't wanted "anything do to with him" since they split again in 2015.

"Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan," Mellencamp said. "She hates me to death."

"She just doesn't want anything to do with me, and I don't blame her," he added. "I think it's because I'm a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I'm moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that's me."

Mellencamp and Ryan called it quits in August 2014 after three years of dating, but appeared to briefly rekindle their romance a few months later. People initially reported the couple, who live in Indiana and New York, respectively, split due to distance.

"I'm too sensitive to live [in New York]," Mellencamp told Rolling Stone in 2013. "I can't see poor people. I can't see the suffering. I can't see the trash on the streets ... I'm not leaving Indiana. I'm going to die here."

Mellencamp was previously married to Priscilla Esterline, Victoria Granucci and Elaine Irwin, and dated supermodel Christie Brinkley after his split from Ryan. The singer will release his 23rd studio album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, on April 28.
