NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Is Donald Trump going to “hire” Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan?
Trump has reportedly signed some famous folks to appear on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” but he’s itching to get the three famous starlets into the boardroom as well. In fact, the proactive Donald is reportedly already in talks with Britney about appearing on the show!
“We’re negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it?” Trump reportedly told The NY Post’s Page Six. “We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she’d be great.”
According to the report, Trump wants the trio on the show in order to “whip them into shape” and help save their careers.
In regards to Paris, Trump said she “wants to be on, and we’re thinking about it, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it.”
As for Lindsay? “Another [bleep]ing mess,” he is quoted as saying. “We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week.”
The Donald made headlines earlier this month when he inferred that Lindsay’s parents, Dina & Michael, were a factor in her recent troubles. He relented soon after, telling Access Hollywood that “Dina’s a terrific woman as far as I’m concerned,” adding, “I hope everything works out for Lindsay because Lindsay’s got a lot going for her in the positive sense.”
Trump told Page Six that his show, in which celebrities play for charities as they vie work for him, “would be a positive thing for [Lohan] to do . . . for all of them.”
Hilton’s spokesman, Mike Sitrick, told Page Six he wasn’t aware of any deal, but he acknowledged that Trump and Paris’ father, Rick Hilton, are friends. Reps for Spears and Lohan didn’t respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.
In the meantime, Trump has reportedly already signed various celebrities for the show:
Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, and George Foreman will reportedly appear, as will “Baby Phat” head designer Kimora Lee Simmons, baseball legend Pete Rose, video vixen Dana Patrick, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk and NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon.
Adding spice to the proceedings will be original “Apprentice” villain, Omarosa!
“There are more than a hundred others who want to be on the show,” said Trump, in his usual humble style.
One star who definitely won’t be appearing is Trump’s frequent sparring partner, Rosie O’Donnell.
When rumors surfaced last month that Trump was considering asking Rosie to appear, her rep responded to Access, “Not in this lifetime or beyond. Someone needs to put down the crack pipe.”
Trump later told Access that he never asked Rosie to appear, but remarked, “it would be a good idea, because I would fire her fat a**. She would definitely not last more than one show . . . I would love to fire Rosie, but I don’t want her on the show.”
