Omarosa Manigault-Newman is poised to compete in “Celebrity Big Brother” after being booted from President Donald Trump’s White House under disputed circumstances in December.
A promo that aired Sunday night during the Grammys featured the ousted Office of Public Liaison communications director, whose position formally ended Jan. 20.
Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly had Manigault fired and Trump signed off on the dismissal in December, setting of a whirlwind of rumors that the former “Apprentice” contestant was dragged out of the White House.
The reality show veteran is slated to bunk alongside roomies Shannon Elizabeth of “American Pie” fame, Sugar Ray front man Mark McGrath, “Bill Cosby Show” cast member Keshia Pulliam and Ariadna Gutierrez, the beauty queen Steve Harvey mistakenly crowned the 2015 Miss Universe.
“Big Brother,” which debuted in the U.S. in 2000, features an array of contestants recorded nearly constantly while living together in a house. This will be the first version of its celebrity spin-off to air in the U.S.
The series is expected to begin Feb. 7.
