The Mooch Joins Cast Of Celebrity Big Brother

Entertainment Weekly reports:

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will be among 12 new contestants competing on season 2 of Big Brother: Celebrity Edition when the reality show hosted by Julie Chen Moonves premieres Monday, Jan. 21 on CBS.

Scaramucci lasted only six days as President Donald Trump’s White House Communications Director in July of 2017 after going on a profanity-laced tirade to The New Yorker, including several disparaging comments about then-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Will “The Mooch” last longer here?

Talking Points Memo reports:

Other stars on the show this season include suspended Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, NFL player Ricky Williams and Lindsey Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan.

Scaramucci isn’t the first ousted Trump official who’s made the jump from the West Wing to “Celebrity Big Brother.” After being forced out of the White House last year, Omarosa Manigault-Newman starred in the reality show.
