Although the first season of Celebrity Big Brother has just begun, Omarosa Manigault-Newman is already laying the groundwork for must-see television.
After leaving her role as White House director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, Omarosa joined the cast of the infamous reality show. Although it's been a minute since she has been part of reality television, the former White House aid proved she is anything but rusty when it comes to stirring the pot.
Instead of creating drama within the house, Omarosa seems set on sending the country, and the man in charge, a very clear message.
In a clip set to air Thursday, Omarosa talks with co-star and TV personality Ross Mathews about her time in the White House.
In the clip, a tearful Omarosa talks to house guest Ross Mathews and describes her experience in the White House.
"Can I tell you, as a voter, a citizen, I never got it — why you went to the White House with him," Mathews said.
"I felt like it was like a call to duty," Manigault-Newman responded. "I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him."
"Does anybody say to him, 'What are you doing?'" Mathews asked.
"Honey, I tried to be that person, and then all of the people around him attacked me," she said. "It was like, 'Keep her away, don't give her access, don't let her talk to him.'"
The reality star then explained that she felt the country was headed for a bad place.
"I'm not there. It's not my circus, not my monkeys," she told Mathews. "I'd like to say it's not my problem but I can't say that because, like, it's bad."
Mathews then asks if we should be worried.
"No, it's going to not be OK," she said. "It's not."
During Thursday's press briefing, Deputy Press Sec. Raj Shah said:
“Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice and this is the fourth time we let her go. She had limited contact with the president during her time here and no contact with the president now.”
