Trump asked Lindsay Lohan to join Celebrity Apprentice 4

Donald Trump wants trainwreck Lindsay Lohan to join the cast of The Celebrity Apprentice 4, but her movies and court-ordered restrictions may prevent her from doing the show.

Lindsay’s mom, Dina Lohan, told People, “Donald approached Lindsay about being on Celebrity Apprentice, so we’ll see where it goes. I think it’s a great idea for her, but Lindsay has two movies coming up [Machete and Inferno], so I don’t know if Lindsay has time. It may conflict with her schedule.”

And it might conflict with her ankle bracelet, too. “She can’t leave L.A., the judge won’t even let Lindsay go to Texas to shoot Machete, so I just don’t know if it’ll work out,” Lindsay’s mom said, adding that Trump is “a very good friend of the family and he’s had our back for years. He’s a great dad, and he would do anything to help us.”

But does Lindsay Lohan’s mother know what Trump does to celebrities with DUIs once they go on The Celebrity Apprentice?
