After two lucky escapes, Omarosa finally gets the chop
Omarosa fired, or, in Donald Trump’s words, “Omarosa, you're fired” is the latest headline from the Apprentice. Omarosa Manigault, 39, became known as the bad girl on the original season of The Apprentice in 2004. “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. But Omarosa, you're fired.”
In this week's task Omarosa brought in the least amount of money of all the contestants (along with Dennis Rodman), and that was another major factor in her being eliminated from the show this week. "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 told Oprah Winfrey for an episode of Where Are They Now? "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 bout her missionary work in Africa in the interview, and opens up on her late love Michael Clarke Duncan, who died 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.”
