Britney and Paris to Be Trump's Tarts?

8/20/2007 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears' prayers have been answered -- now that the Donald himself has offered to hire her and resurrect her career.

Armed with the searing insight that she's a "[bleeping] mess," Trump tells Page Six that he's "negotiating" with Brit-Brit about appearing on his "Celebrity Apprentice" and that he's also "thinking about" having Paris Hilton on the show, though, says Lord Combover, "I don't know if we're going to do it." As for Brit and Paris' comrade-in-wreckitude, Lindsay Lohan, Trump says he's going to contact her this week about the show.

Paris' rep says he wasn't aware if any deal was in the works, and Spears and Lohan mouthpieces weren't available.

No Movies, No Prob: Lindsay Can Rock


Speaking of Lindz, it seems that even if she's radioactive to movie producers wary of her DUI and drug busts, the music biz is more than happy to have her back.

Rush & Molloy report that the rehabbing Lohan is "looking to revive" her singing career, and that she's told record execs at Universal that she's ready to deliver her next magnum opus, the follow up to 2005's "A Little More Personal." And it sounds as though song slingers are ready for her -- says a source, "A record by Lindsay Lohan costs almost nothing to make ... You just give her some songs and session musicians."

Ray-J -- I Did It With Bigger Kim, Not Lil' Kim

The Brandy bro was, of course, an Internet sensation with another Kim -- Kardashian, i.e., the Tush -- and even reportedly fielded offers to be a professional porn-trepreneur. But we're told by a source close to Ray that despite the fact that Ray and Lil' K have been seen stepping out together, anything that's happened between them is recorded only in the warm glow of their memories.

Gummi -- Empty Honey Pot?


First, it was Greasy Bear who reportedly found his pockets no longer lined with loot from his folks, and now Page Six is saying that older bro, Gummi -- aka Jason Davis -- who will be getting the pinch from the parents. The pair have allegedly been cashing checks around Tinseltown "in small amounts" and "not from their family." Still, "friends" of the Big Bad Bears say they haven't been cut off.
