Khloe Kardashian Kicked off 'Celebrity Apprentice' for Past DUI Offense
Though Khloe Kardashian has been gaining attention on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she became even more notorious for being the seventh contestant fired from the reality series The Celebrity Apprentice.  In a shocking turn of events, Donald Trump revealed that he had just learned about the starlet’s past DUI arrest and decided that it was one reason for her to leave the show. 

Audiences might think it unfair that Khloe’s DUI was the sole cause for her elimination, and the reality TV celebrity agrees.  Following the incident, Khloe Kardashian wrote on her blog: “So as I'm sure you've all heard, The Donald fired me off of Celebrity Apprentice last night. It wasn't because of my work ethic, it wasn't because I was slacking -- it was because of my DUI, one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made that I will forever regret.”

“I will NEVER say that what I did was right, but I think it is completely unrelated to my place on the show and I don't think I should have been fired for that reason alone.  I have tried to bring awareness to how serious DUI's are and I am trying to make some right out of my huge mistake.” 

Despite the injustice of what happened, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star realized that the experience was worth it anyway.  “Oh well...what's done is done, and there's nothing I can do now.  I just wish Mr. Trump would have handled the situation a little differently.  I guess I was expecting a lot... LOL.”

Even though she’s no longer on Celebrity Apprentice, Khloe Kardashian gathered enough memories and lessons to last.  “I met a lot of cool people on the show, many who were really talented.”

“It was a great experience and I love a new challenge,” she wrote, “but I have to say that I was happy when it was over so that I could focus on the growth and success of my clothing store and shooting Keeping Up with the people I love most in the world!  Filming Celebrity Apprentice gave me a whole new outlook on Keeping Up.  I adore working with my family and this just made it all that much clearer to me.”
