Last night, Def Leppard made an appearance on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice…by not appearing. If you follow this show and you wonder if the band could not be bothered to show up, please keep in mind that this “reality” series is not entirely unscripted: Def Leppard WILL appear on the season finale, next week, May 22. The preview you may have seen (in which it seemed that the band bailed) was (obviously) edited heavily for some serious dramatic (?) purposes, and the band WILL show up to help out John Rich with his 7UP Retro promotion.

Oops, spoiler alert! Sorry about that.

The Celebrity Apprentice. Sunday. NBC. 9PM.
