Donald Trump has revealed that he would be interested in signing Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina to appear "as a team" on The Celebrity Apprentice.

The real estate mogul told Access Hollywood that the mother-daughter pairing could rival the success that Joan and Melissa Rivers had on the series in 2009.

"We would love to have [Dina and Lindsay] both as a team," he said. "You know, we did it with Joan Rivers, not to equate - but we did it with Joan and Melissa, and they came on as a team, and it was a great success. We've been talking to [Dina and Lindsay] as a team, as opposed to individuals."

Trump referred to the Lohan family as "terrific people" and asserted that Lindsay's first priority should be overcoming her alleged drug problem.

He explained: "She's got a problem. So before they do anything, she's gonna straighten out her problem. I've spoken to Lindsay, I’ve spoken to the mother, but they've gotta really straighten Lindsay out first."

The Celebrity Apprentice is to return for a new season in 2011.
