Omarosa has been delivering hints and details of life working under the Trump Administration, and The Daily Mail reports that she may be looking to tell all formally. ‘I’m emancipated. I feel like I just got freed off a plantation. Hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus,’ she said in a clip that was filmed on her sixth day on the show Celebrity Big Brother.
Fellow houseguest, actress Shannon Elizabeth, asked the former reality star why she left in January.
‘I was literally the only African American woman in the senior staff,’ she said.
‘I’m going to meetings with people who are ignoring me, or because I was black, people wouldn’t even talk to me. And it wasn’t just the black thing – it was the woman thing.’ She also teased writing a tell-all book, despite the fact that it may land her in trouble.
‘[Trump is] going to come after me with everything he has. Like, I’m going up against a kazillionaire,’ Manigault Newman said about a pushback she would get if she wrote a book, according to Vulture.
‘So I’ll probably end up in court for the next…but I have to tell my truth. I’m tired of being muted. All the stuff that I just put on a shelf somewhere out of loyalty.
‘I’ve been defending somebody for so long, and I’m now I’m like: “Yo, you are a special kind of f****d up, and that special breed, they’re about to learn all about it”,’ she continued. She’s already cashed in on her time in the White House in one way. The former White House aide signed with a speakers bureau on Monday and will begin asking for up to $50,000 a speech, according to The Daily Mail.
‘Since it’s Black History Month and Women’s History Month, I’m sure Omarosa will be in high demand, as she has always been,’ said American Program Bureau’s founder Robert P. Walker to TMZ. While this idea may be a bit strange, it goes without saying that she may be an interesting commodity following the way she left the White House.
At the moment, it’s not entirely clear what exactly led to her departure. The only official statement we have on the subject is a brief statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. It said: “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities. Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
