The Donald says he'd like the trio for his celebrity edition of The Apprentice

A feisty Donald Trump touched upon two of his favorite topics this weekend: his sexual prowess and his sparring partners.

“I’m great in bed,” said Trump, 61, as he divulged the secret of his marriage to Melania, the mother of his 17-month-old son Baron. Melania, at his side, smiled – and declined comment.

Speaking to PEOPLE on Saturday at an event launching Trump on the Ocean (a banquet facility under construction at New York’s Jones Beach) during Mercedes-Benz Polo challenge in Bridgehampton, N.Y., the mogul took another swipe at Rosie O’Donnell – who had declined his offer to appear with him on the planned celebrity edition of The Apprentice. (“It will not happen in this lifetime or beyond,” said O’Donnell’s rep, Cindi Berger.)

“I don’t think Rosie is a good competitor,” said Trump. “I watched her fold with me.”

He added, “And I watched her fold with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. And Elisabeth Hasselbeck has the brain of a pea. And yet she was able to out-duel Rosie verbally when they had their spat. So I don’t consider Rosie a good competitor at all.”

Besides, Trump has another line-up he’s envisioning for his re-imagined Apprentice, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six: Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

“We’re negotiating with Britney right now,” The Donald tells the paper. “Can you imagine her doing it? We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had [UPN’s Britney and Kevin: Chaotic,] did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television, and I think she’d be great.”

Hilton, he says, “wants to be on, and we’re thinking about it, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it.”

Lohan he calls “Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do.”

A rep for Hilton told the Post he was unaware of a prospective deal, but that Trump and the hotel heiress’s father, Rick Hilton, were friends. (Rick Hilton and wife Kathy stopped by the JetOne Jets field to wish Trump well during Bridgehampton polo.)

Spokespersons for Spears and Lohan reportedly did not respond to requests for comment.
