Most people wouldn’t describe Omarosa Manigault-Newman as nice, but on a recent episode of Celebrity Big Brother, the former White House aide only had good things to say about Melania Trump. Omarosa was asked by housemate Ross Matthews what she really thought of the First Lady — and she did not hold back.
“I don’t understand why people don’t think that she’s sharp,” she said on the reality competition. “She speaks so many different languages. She’s sharp.” She went on to say Melania has “impeccable taste” when it comes to her interior design skills and agreed with Ross, who called the Slovenian beauty “gorgeous.”

While Omarosa seems to be Melania’s biggest fan, she definitely isn’t supporting her old boss Donald Trump anymore, telling the cameras she wouldn’t vote for the former reality star again “in a million years.” Too little too late, huh Omarosa?
“I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” she explained. “I was haunted by tweets every single day, like what is he going to do?” Omarosa also warned Americans about vice president Mike Pence, adding, “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying.”
Last year, Omarosa allegedly “resigned” from her position as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. However, since her stint on the CBS reality competition, White House staffers have changed up the story and claimed she was actually dismissed by the Commander in Chief. “Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice, and this was the fourth time we let her go,” deputy press secretary Raj Shah told reporters on Feb. 8. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
It seems like just yesterday that Omarosa, 44, was singing the Donald’s praises. “I am aware of the perceptions. But [Trump] is open-minded: He does not judge people on their gender or race. He judges them on their ability to do the job,” she told the Hollywood Reporter in 2016. “Truly, I am living the American dream because of Donald Trump. Look at my career, the wealth and exposure that I’ve had: It’s very difficult to make the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t like Black people and Black women.” How times have changed.
