Omarosa Manigault-Newman is likening her experience working at the White House to a plantation.
The former White House staffer is a cast member on this season’s Celebrity Big Brother and she’s not holding back talking about her period working for the Trump administration.
“I’m emancipated. I feel like I just got freed off a plantation,” she said during Saturday’s episode. “Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! ”
She added: “I was literally the only African-American woman in the senior staff,” she said of her role as the Office of Public Liaison’s director of communications.“I’m going to meetings with people who are ignoring me, or because I was Black, people wouldn’t even talk to me. And it wasn’t just the Black thing — it was the woman thing.”
But Manigault-Newman won’t just be spilling tea on reality TV. She told her housemates that she is contemplating writing a tell-all book about her experience.
“I’m thinking of writing a tell-all sometime,” she said. “[Trump is] going to come after me with everything he has. Like, I’m going up against a kazillionaire… but I have to tell my truth. I’m tired of being muted… I’ve been defending somebody for so long. Now I’m like, ‘Yo, you are a special kind of f—ked up.’”
Manigault-Newman was cast in the most recent season of Celebrity Big Brother following her surprise firing from the White House last year.
