Donald Trump never shies away from chiming in on the latest controversy, and this week’s Charlie Sheen interview madness is no exception.

But, Trump is speaking from a bit of experience and he does know the troubled actor. It seems Sheen’s ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s parents belonged to one of Trump’s country clubs, Milagro in Palm Beach, Florida, and Trump spent some time with Sheen when the pair were dating.

“I got to know Charlie,” Trump said during a conference call today for the new season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” which debuts this Sunday (NBC, 9/8c). “He’s a different kind of guy. I did say to [Brooke's] parents, ‘I don’t think this is going to work.’ So I was right about that.”

“But I also got to like Charlie,” he continued. “He’s just a different kind of a guy. You see that in his interviews. These interviews are unbelievable entertainment and that’s probably why he does well in the ratings business. And, while Iā€™m sure we won’t get him on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ we’d love to have him.”
