Mahsa Saeidi-Azcuy, a Brooklyn assistant district attorney, was forced to quit after her role on the NBC reality series "The Apprentice" made her recognizable to juries, reports the New York Post.
The 29-year-old ticked off her bosses by becoming a contestant on the show, because they gave her a two-month leave in June without knowing she had plans for reality TV, the story says.
So far, she has survived three episodes of the series. "If we knew she would have been on ‘The Apprentice,’ it would not have been approved," said a spokesman for the DA, referring to the leave.
Saeidi-Azcuy resigned on Monday, after her bosses reassigned her to a lower-profile job and were annoyed by an episode in which Donald Trump blamed her brusque manner on her job as a Brooklyn assistant DA, the article says.
