Celebrity Apprentice has lost a big villain. Donald Trump fired Omarosa on Sunday’s episode.
“I adore you,” Trump told the reality star in the boardroom. “We’ve had tremendous success together. You helped make The Apprentice. You helped to make me a star.”
He then added, “But Omarosa, you’re fired.”
Being fired by Trump isn’t new for her. Omarosa Manigault, 39, rose to fame as the bad girl on the original season of The Apprentice in 2004.
On Tuesday, she talks with Oprah Winfrey for an episode of Where Are They Now?airing on OWN at 10 p.m. and recounts how her life has changed since that first Apprentice. “I went from being anonymous to being famous overnight. I did 10 reality shows in one year. I did a stint on soap operas, and I did a couple of scripted shows.”
She adds, “I remember a lot of titles being put on me at the time, they called me the greatest reality TV villain of all time … It didn’t define who I was. I was always bigger than my reality TV character.”
Omarosa also talks about finding her calling doing missionary work in Africa, and about losing the love of her life, actor Michael Clarke Duncan, in September.
“He went to bed a little earlier than me. And at some point I, later that evening, I could hear him laboring, trying to breathe. And then I didn’t hear anything, I just jumped up and um, when I realized he wasn’t breathing I just started doing CPR and trying to get 911 on the line and just — I just started praying. I mean I prayed like I have never prayed before. We were able to get him — his heart started again, breathing again and we got him to the best hospital and he fought. After two months of fighting, he passed away.”
Omarosa was a great villain. I’m wondering if less people will tune in with her gone. What do you think? Let me know on my facebook page by clicking here.
