Could Omarosa Manigault Newman’s explosive book “Unhinged” become a movie? It is an idea that Manigault Newman teased while sharing a blockbuster movie-esque promo of her best-selling new title.
“Unhinged the movie?” she asked in the caption.
The former White House aide is sitting high after it was announced that the memoir of her time working with the Trump administration is now number one on the New York Times’ best-seller list. She served as the administration’s director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison before she was unceremoniously let go in December.
“Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” topped both the print hardcover and the combined print and e-book best sellers list, according to the Times chart, which was shared with publishers on Wednesday. She sold a total of 33,000 copies in its first week, Reuters reports.
She, however, failed to reach the top spot on some lists, including Amazon’s best sellers chart. “Unhinged” instead took second place to Rachel Hollis’ “Girl, Wash Your Face.”
Manigault Newman’s whirlwind press tour for the book included the release of secretly recorded audio of her time working in the White House. Last week, she threatened to release more recordings, of which she has many.
“I have a significant amount, in fact, a treasure trove, of multimedia backup for everything that’s not only in “Unhinged,” but everything that I assert about Donald Trump,” Omarosa told the PBS Newshour last week.
“The book started climbing Amazon’s best sellers chart when Trump let loose, labeling her ‘Wacky Omarosa’ and describing her as a dog,” CNN reports. “The Trump tweets generated more news coverage and curiosity which in turn generated more sales.”
