Forget beating cancer, winning the Tour de France (oh, seven times) and preparing for the NYC Marathon, Lance Armstrong is in the news these days for who he may or may not be dating.

Namely, Ms. Ivanka Trump.

While recent rumors confirm these two are merely friends, we have to hear it from Donald Trump himself before knowing what believe. Fortunately, the real state mogul cleared it all up with Larry King.

“They talk,” Trump said. “I don’t think that would be for her and perhaps not for him, but he’s a great guy but they are friends. I know that and they do talk.”

Friends that talk. For Lance and Ivanka, that could mean nothing but a platonic relationship. For someone like Lindsay Lohan, of course, that still means some serious hitting of skins.

In the interview, which will air on Larry King Live tonight Trump talks about his daughter’s potential suitors (“There is no man that is good enough for her”), along with how Ivanka’s dates are greeted (“Usually with bodyguards, they beat him up”).

The Donald even weighed in on the phenomenon that is Paris Hilton:

“Paris said she wants to build a brand just like Donald Trump. And I don’t know if she’s done it the same way but she is smart like a fox. People say, ‘Oh, she’s not smart, she’s not this, she’s not that.’ She’s done a very good job.”

Actually, The Donald, Paris herself said she wasn’t smart. Remember, Trumpy, money doesn’t equal brains. Or happiness.
