Omarosa Manigault has apparently been trying to recruit her friends to work for Donald Trump for some time now. The 43-year-old who gained fame from being a contestant on first season of The Apprentice has kept close ties to the now President of the United States .

So when Trump made it into office, it was no huge surprise that she got the role of director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

Sheryl Lee Ralph was asked about Omarosa’s new job and how their relationship has changed on Hollywood Today. “We’ve been friends a long time. We don’t share the same politics, we don’t share the same thoughts. But, I like her,” she said. 

“Omarosa and I meet at this church event. And I say, ‘Girlfriend please don’t tell me your taking.. you’re doing.. what why?’ And she said, ‘Sheryl, I am going to the White House. I will have an office in the White House. I am riding this train and I’ve got a ticket for you, if you would like to come along. And I was like, ‘Girlfriend, Imma have to miss that train.'” 

On a positive note, Omarosa is being credited for pushing the historically black college and university initiative to lock in long-term funding.
