Omarosa’s Asthma Attack on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’: Here’s What Caused It



CBS

Never fear, Omarosa is still here and she’s doing just fine now. However, we have learned what caused the former Trump administration member’s recent health scare while competing on “Celebrity Big Brother”: bowling.
On Sunday’s episode of the CBS reality series a “Bowlerina” challenge required the former Trump administration staffer to wear a tutu, spin around 11 times and roll balls up a ramp to knock over pins. It exacerbated her asthma and caused her to leave the house to seek medical attention.
“I couldn’t breathe,” Omarosa said in the diary room after she was seen grabbing her inhaler. “It was really difficult to breathe. I knew I was in trouble with my asthma.”
Omarosa was seen pounding on a door and calling for medical help before the show cut to a commercial break. When they returned, Omarosa was gone and later the houseguests received a note saying she was receiving treatment in the hospital and would be returning.
Fans first learned of Omarosa’s health scare on Saturday, following the attack the previous night.
“We were able to get my asthma under control,” Omarosa said in the diary room during Sunday’s episode. “It was a really scary experience. Thank God I am back in the game.”
“Omarosa has returned to the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house after receiving medical attention last night and today for an asthma attack. This development will be addressed on the Sunday night broadcast,” a CBS spokesperson told TheWrap Saturday. On Monday CBS said there was no further update to share on her condition.
