The Fix

“Apprentice” star Donald Trump almost caused a gag reflex in the audience of “The View” March 6 when he was a guest on the show with daughter Ivanka, 24, US Weekly reports. The 59 year old was asked how he would feel if the ex-model (who holds an M.B.A.) posed for Playboy. He replied, “[She] does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka wasn’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Eww. Three days later Trump was a guest on “Larry King Live” and said of his creepy comment, “It was obviously in jest.” OK, but the next time you decide to jest about your daughter, don’t do it on national television!

Singer Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, 9, has reached the age when she is questioning her parents, and Madonna has recently had to explain some of her past actions to her newly inquisitive daughter. In the April issue of Out magazine, Madonna gave the dirt about her explanation to Lourdes concerning the infamous 2003 Video Music Awards kiss with fellow singer Britney Spears: “I am the mommy pop star and she is the baby pop star. And I am kissing her to pass my energy onto her.” Umm, I think Britney should be insulted and Lourdes just might need therapy. Oh, well. Madonna can afford it.

Isaac Hayes, 63, is quitting Comedy Central’s show “South Park,” according to OK! magazine. The voice of the character Chef since 1997, Hayes, in a March 13 statement, criticized the series’ “inappropriate ridicule of religious communities.” Hayes’ sudden decision was inspired by a recent episode that poked fun at Scientology, (Hayes’ religion). Co-creator of “South Park,” Matt Stone said recently of Hayes, “He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured.” We’ll miss you, Chef!
