Omarosa Manigault offered fellow TV personality Piers Morgan sex to win the "Celebrity Apprentice" when the two were on the show together in 2008, according to an explosive op-ed by Morgan in the Daily Mail.
When Morgan denied the request, Manigault began accusing him of being a homosexual, and spreading rumors about his sexuality while calling him a “fucking faggot” in the process, according to Morgan.
*NEW: Omarosa offered me sex to win Celebrity Apprentice, then called me a 'f***ing f*gg*t', invented gay smears & threatened to punch me. Why the hell was this vile creature ever employed at the White House? https://t.co/HyxnSWyBLZ pic.twitter.com/UbXQzDX1Tj— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 13, 2018
“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen,” Morgan wrote. “But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work.”
“Which beggars the question,” Morgan continues, “What the hell was she doing inside the world’s most powerful building for 12 months?”
Morgan also tweeted that hiring Manigault was as much a scandal as the hiring of White House staff secretary Rob Porter who resigned last week amid domestic abuse allegations from his two ex-wives.
*NEW: Porter's a scandal - but so was Trump's hiring of Omarosa, one of the worst human beings I've ever met. https://t.co/HyxnSWyBLZ pic.twitter.com/bzk1ogHlmb— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) February 13, 2018
Manigault worked in the White House as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison and was fired for using a White House car service in December of last year. Manigault was reportedly dragged out of the White House during her departure after she was refusing to leave.
Manigault later joined this season’s current cast of CBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother” and has made headlines talking about her time in the White House on the show.
Manigault compared living in the house to working in the White House on the show’s season premiere.
“There’s a lot of people that want to stab me in the back, kind of similar to the White House,” Manigault said.
Manigault also cried about her time at the White House and said to TV personality and housemate Ross Matthews on the show Americans should be worried and she was “haunted by tweets every single day.”
“I tried to be that person and then all of the people around him attacked me,” Manigault said.
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah shot back after her comments aired.
“Omarosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this was the fourth time we let her go,” Shah said. “She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now.”
Manigault was on the regular show of "The Apprentice" in 2004 when she placed eighth and was on the show again with Morgan when she placed sixth. Morgan came in first.
