Omarosa To Compete On Celebrity Big Brother

Variety reports:

Omarosa has moved from the White House to the Big (Brother) House. Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman — who exited the Trump administration last year — was unveiled as one of the contestants for the CBS reality show “Celebrity Big Brother” in a promo aired by the network during the Grammy Awards.

A veteran of reality shows, Newman appeared on the first season of NBC’s “The Apprentice” with Donald Trump, and then returned for “Celebrity Apprentice,” among others. She served as assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump Administration, but resigned her post in December under a cloud.

    WHY ?

    • Gustav2

      Because she is a “Lady” and not a whore!

      • SkokieGuy

        Not only is the latter true, she is lowering her asking price.

        Then again, Trump has turned the WH into a reality show, so perhaps this is a lateral move?

      • olandp

        I think you may have your definitions mixed up.

        • BJORN RAGNVALDR

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Her paint by number cat poster will have to wait .

    • Gerry Fisher

      Ha! [ahem]

  • SkokieGuy

    Is this one of the shows with demeaning challenges?

    • Ginger Snap

      You just described every single reality show on the air.

      • SkokieGuy

        Howdy sailor! Good to see you back in the comments!

        The question is, what is the more demeaning challenge, being on a TV show like Survivor, or working for the current admin?

        • Nowhereman

          Well, Trump thinks it’s just a Reality show, so I’d say it’s a draw.

        • Ginger Snap

          Hmmmmmmm. I’m glad to be back I’m recovered from retail holiday hell and life is back to as normal as it can be.

  • olandp

    Who is this bitch?

    • Treant

      She used to be a thing, I guess. I never knew her.

    • Rambie

      She was the token black at the White House. Now she’s trying to cling to those 15min.

  • clay

    “the Big (Brother) House”

    Really, Variety, you had to turn it into a joke about either prison or slavery with those parentheses?

  • Treant

    I look forward to laughing at the future ex-contestant when they vote her off for being a pain in the ass.

    • Scott Carpenter

      I boycott “reality” television on general principle, but hubs watches them. It always strikes me as convenient that the most vile and hated contestants are the ones who stay till the bitter end. I’ve always believed the voting is as rigged as the 2016 election, and it’s all about the ratings.
      Short response: don’t hold your breath waiting for her to be voted off.

      • Treant

        Heh, you may be right! On the up side, Omarosa may think she’s a big shark, but we may find out she’s a little fish.

        They tossed her bowl right out of the White House, for example…!

  • JT

    She’ll be dragged kicking and screaming out of that job too.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Other people who have to live with this vile person? Surely she will be voted out first, right?

  • Jay Silversmith

    In other words….no employable skills.

    • clay

      not even as “pastor’s wife”

      • Ginger Snap

        She could be a pastors wife she is a great Fame whore and pastors love that.

      • Lindoro Almaviva

        in her case, it is her husband who is the pastor’s wife. Yes, you read that right, she is an ordained minister, if that can be believed

        • clay

          Yes, but so is he.

          • Lindoro Almaviva

            birds of a feather and all that jazz

  • Lizard

    Wait wait wait, they’re going to put a former Trump staffer in a big house–alone–with a bunch of pissed-off, mostly left-leaning celebrities? I might have to watch Celebrity Big Brother for a change.

    Also, “celebrity” might be a bit of a stretch for Omarosa. C’mon, no one outside political junkies like us knew who she was before she was fired.

    • Jeffrey Robert

      Have you seen the list of the “celebrities”. The word might be a stretch for ANY of them –

      Ross Matthews, Ariadna Gutierrez, Chuck Liddell, Kshia Knight Pulliam, James Maslow, Brandi Glanville, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Matta World Peace, Shannon Elizabeth and Mark McGrath. If you said “Who?” more than five times you are not alone.

      • AltheaTheCat

        I know who three of them are including Omarosa, and a few other names look slightly familiar. This is more like Has-Been Big Brother.

      • Scott Carpenter

        The only one I recognize is omarosa, and that’s because of here.

  • Jack

    WTF is wrong with this woman?

    Full disclosure: I watched the first few seasons of Real World and Road Rules. Love Josh and Pam. At some point, I finally admitted to myself that I was being played and that was that. I’ve seen a few random episodes of Big Brother. Even a few episodes of The Apprentice (but never from start to finish).

    That said, I absolutely HATE when I hear someone referred to as a “Reality Star.” Nothing real and not a star.

    • Acronym Jim

      Pedro Zamora probably did more to expose the general public to the human face of the AIDS crisis than any other person.

    • Ginger Snap

      The first and last reality show was the first season of Real World and the last reality TV I watched. Well I did watch a few episodes if season two until I realized it was not the same.

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      WTF is wrong with CBS?

  • kareemachan

    Whores gotta whore, I guess.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Get a JOB!

  • Acronym Jim

    Democrats retire to lead a life on the lecture circuit or to go back to their previous professions. Republicans retire and go on Dancing with the Stars and Big Brother.

    • Nowhereman

      Didn’t Spicer go on Dancing with the Stars?

      • Robert K Wright

        No. He says he was offered a spot, but he “turned it down because he was too busy”. Lol

        • Nowhereman

          I guffawed when I read that!

      • Judas Peckerwood

        No, but human fistula Tom DeLay did.

      • Acronym Jim

        I don’t know about Spicer, but Rick Perry and Tom Delay certainly did.

  • Ginger Snap

    Once a Fame whore always a Fame whore just like her former boss.

  • hdtex
  • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

    Wonder why our nation has become so vulgar and disgustIng? Look no further than over-the-air, network, television companies such as CBS who choose to reward this. Fuck Star Trek Discovery. I won’t pay to support such trash via CBS All Access.

  • Cackalaquiano

    My god she’s so tacky.

  • Robert Adams

    Omarosa is like Kim Kardashian. Neither have any real purpose in their lives.

  • Christopher
  • Taylor

    I suspect that there will be a huge lawsuit from her after its over.

  • Outlaw Woman

    Just like Celebrity Apprentice, it appears Celebrity Big Brother will be populated with has beens and never wases … well, I’ll still watch when I’m drinking.

  • William

    Anyone watching the crap on purpose should have their right to vote yanked and be put into a group home. I hope Omarosa is devoured by crocadiles during the opening credits.

    My partner won’t even watch the “celebrity” version of Big Brother. I could bounce a bowling ball off his head during the regular program.

  • architect_tim
  • Alexander M R Volk

    Will not be watching that.

  • Ron Romero
  • WNY
  • Nowhereman

    Gee, you’d think she’d go on “Survivor”. And “exited the Trump administration” made me laugh. It was more like she was shot out of one of those circus cannons.

    • Gene Perry

      Maybe “Naked & Afraid”! Yikes!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • JOE, PLEASE STOP MENTIONING THIS WOMAN.

  • Larry L

    $alebrity would be closer to the truth.

  • fuzzybits

    Back to reality show villain.

  • Highmoremotel

    That’s further down the shit hole than I expected. Wow. The never-mighty has fallen.

  • JWC

    How far the mighty have fallen

  • Jefe5084

    i pegged her for naked and scared or whatever that other one is.

  • Rick Jackson

    I have never watched Big Brother. Even if I were interested, I certainly would not watch it now.

  • JCF
  • Terry

    She’ll be the same miserable dolt she’s always been
