She went from working in the office of Vice President Al Gore to becoming one of reality TV’s most controversial stars. Omarosa rose in the ranks as a competitor on Donald Trump's The Apprentice, where her shrewd tactics and confrontational behavior led to her being labeled the “bad girl” and “villain.” Since The Apprentice, Omarosa has appeared on over 20 reality series and numerous talk shows. In 2010, the fiancé of late actor Michael Clarke Duncan scored her own reality dating series with TV One called The Ultimate Merger.
