More Trump TV

Hold on to you hairpieces kids! More of “The Donald” is set to hit a television set near you. Families and couples will be set up with Trump in meetings that discuss finances and relationships. The plan is for the advice and Trump antics to be aired in 2008.

“Property tycoon Donald Trump can add another high-profile role to his résumé–as a TV counselor and legal advisor. The billionaire, 71, is in talks to offer advice to members of the public engaged in financial disputes as part of a hybrid show described as “Dr. Phil meets Judge Judy.”


Donald has had some practice when it comes to dolling out his views on money related subjects. He made an appearance on “Oprah” to face off with former “Apprentice” hopefuls and throw out a few freebies on making finances grow. Such gems included:

“Surround yourself with people that are full of ideas, and people that are not going to be “yes-men.” Surround yourself with smart, truthful, honest people. Only invest in what you know, or invest with people who are really good and have a great financial track record. Do a little research. Look at the paper and look at the rate of returns. Put your money in one of those funds.”

I am cringing at the thought of all this. Why would Trump be ideal for advising others on relationships and money? How many times has he been married? How many times has been bankrupt or on the verge of bankruptcy? It is like asking Lindsay Lohan for advice on remaining sober.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Donald Trump is shown at the launch of his “Trump Home Luxury Lifestyle Collection” (I wish I were making that up) at Macy’s on 7/19/07.
