Omarosa Says America Is ‘Not Gonna Be OK’ Under Trump (Video)



Omarosa Manigault opened up about her stint in the Trump administration on “Celebrity Big Brother” on Thursday, warning that the country is ” not going to be okay” with the former reality star in the White House.
Manigault, who was a contestant on Trump’s “The Apprentice,” told Ross Mathews that she felt a “call to duty” to serve in the administration when her former boss won the 2016 presidential election, but once he took office, things went south.
“I was haunted by tweets every single day. What is he gonna tweet next?” she told Mathews through tears. “I mean, I tried to be that [stabilizing] person, and then all of the people around him attacked me.”

White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah brushed off Manigault’s comments when asked about them at the press briefing on Thursday.
“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice’ and this is the fourth time we let her go,” said Shah to a smattering of laughter. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
“Celebrity Big Brother” airs Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, followed by another live episode on Friday at 8 p.m. ET.

White House aide Omarosa Manigault was exited the Trump administration on Tuesday, while it has not been confirmed if she resigned or was fired, some reports state she had to be “physically dragged and escorted” off the premises. It’s hardly the first time the “Apprentice” alum has gotten into a high-profile disagreement since coming into the public eye over a decade ago.

During her first appearance on “The Apprentice” in 2004, Manigault frequently bragged about her experience working with then-Vice President Al Gore. However, it was later reported that she cycled through four positions in two years before finally being asked to leave altogether.

Manigault became one of the original reality TV villains with her instantly iconic performance on “The Apprentice’s” debut season. She clashed with nearly every other cast member that season, but perhaps her most memorable moment came when she accused fellow contestant Ereka Vetrini of racism over the phrase “the pot calling the kettle black.”

Not one to let her 15 minutes expire, Manigault spun her star-making turn on “The Apprentice” into lasting reality TV notoriety. When she appeared on the fifth season of VH1’s “The Surreal Life,” she found herself under the knife — literally — of Janice Dickinson. The mock-threat sent Manigault over the edge, leading her to call Dickinson “a crackhead” and threatening to hit her “in the mouth.”

When Manigault returned to the Trump boardroom for “The Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008, she found a new enemy in the prickly British TV personality Piers Morgan. Their feud persists even until today, but it began when Morgan pinpointed her as the biggest liability among the women and refused to pronounce her name correctly.

Radio personality-turned-daytime TV star Wendy Williams hosted Manigault on her fledgling talk show in 2008 to promote her book, “The Bitch Switch.” That interview quickly devolved into a series of snide comments about each other’s looks and a full-blown argument about whether or not Manigault is a good representative for the black community.

Her third and final “Apprentice” appearance was in the show’s “All-Stars” season in 2013, when she again clashed with Morgan, who was brought back to judge the contestants as a past winner. But it was La Toya Jackson who took the brunt of her anger when the singer dared to try and tell her what to do during one of the weekly challenges.

Manigault and “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel held animosity for each other for years, but the pair tried to turn their beef into ratings when the “Apprentice” alum appeared on Frankel’s daytime talk show in 2013. Manigault slammed Frankel as “mediocre,” saying she’d had an easier path to fame and success because of her race.

Michael Clarke Duncan’s family hired a lawyer in 2013 to investigate the late actor’s decision to rewrite his will to make Manigault, his then-fiancee, his main beneficiary a year before his death. The “Green Mile” star’s sister also took issue with Manigault’s decision to sell some of his belongings without their knowledge.

Shortly after taking on her position as a communications official in the Trump White House, Manigault made headlines for a verbal altercation with veteran reporter — and former friend — April Ryan. Witnesses said the two got into a heated argument outside the Oval Office, and Ryan later said Manigault claimed to have “dossiers” of damaging information about a number of reporters.
