Spill that tea! As a former White House aide for the Trump administration, Omarosa Manigault-Newman definitely has a ton of insider information about the president of the United States. She’s been slowly revealing details during her stint on the inaugural season of the American version of Celebrity Big Brother — but she saved the best for last when she teased that she’ll eventually go on to write a tell-all book about her experience working for Donald Trump during the finale!
“I’m thinking of writing a tell-all sometime,” the former Apprentice star said in one clip. “He’s going to come after me with everything he has. Like, I’m going up against a kazillionaire.”

She explained that writing a tell-all will probably end in a nasty court battle with Trump, but she isn’t letting that intimidate her from writing her book.
“I have to tell my truth,” she continued. “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–ked up,’ and that special breed, they’re about to learn all about it.”

Omarosa and Trump developed a close friendship after she starred in a handful of seasons of his now-defunct reality TV series The Apprentice — where she quickly earned fame as the show’s villain. That relationship would later lead to her working closely with Trump on his 2016 presidential campaign trail as the director of African-American outreach.
After Trump was elected into office, he offered her a position as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, which she held for a year. The details of Omarosa’s departure from that role are a bit fuzzy though, and it’s unclear if she resigned from the position or if she was fired. Missed the Celebrity Big Brother finale?
