Stephen Baldwin stole Michael Lohan’s shot at becoming the next Apprentice

Posted by: Ted Mann - Posted in Michael Lohan, Stephen Baldwin, Upper Grandview on Oct 24, 2007


Perhaps the most telling thing to come out of the news that Stephen Baldwin will be competing on the next season of “The Apprentice”: He wasn’t The Donald’s first choice. Michael Lohan was.

Tabloid Baby claims that Lohan had already accepted the offer to appear on the show when NBC lawyers learned of the wayward dad’s criminal past and current parole. That’s when Baldwin, an Upper Grandview resident, stepped in to pinch hit.

As we’ve reported before, the two born-again ministers (Baldwin and Lohan, that is) became buddies while trying to launch a $15 million teen detox center on Long Island. It’s good to see the two tag-teaming yet again on another worthy cause.
