The meaning of «omarosa manigault newman»

Omarosa Onee Manigault Newman (/ˌoʊməˈroʊsə ˈmænɪˌɡɔːlt/; born February 5, 1974), often known mononymously as Omarosa, is an American reality television show participant, writer, and former political aide to former US President Donald Trump. She became widely known as a contestant on the first season of NBC's reality television series The Apprentice - she also later appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice

Newman became assistant to the President and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison during the Trump administration in January 2017. However, on December 13, 2017, White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly, fired Newman, citing "money and integrity issues", as well as "inappropriate use of company vehicles". Afterwards, she competed twice on the Big Brother reality series - in 2018 on first season of Celebrity Big Brother US (placing 5th), and in 2021 on Big Brother Australia VIP.

In August 2018, Newman published Unhinged, detailing her tenure at the White House and criticizing Trump and his administration. Two days before the book was released, she released the first of as many as 200 secret tapes she recorded during her White House tenure. As of 16 October 2021, she has released four tapes. The first tape she released, which was secretly recorded inside the Situation Room, was described as "one of the worst White House security breaches ever," though the tape is thought not to violate the Espionage Act.[1][2]

Newman was born in Youngstown, Ohio, the daughter of Theresa Marie Walker and Jack Thomas Manigault. Newman's father was murdered when she was seven years old.[3] After graduating from The Rayen School in Youngstown, she earned a bachelor's degree in communications with a concentration in radio in 1996 at Central State University[4][5] in Wilberforce, Ohio.[6] She later moved to Washington, D.C., to attend Howard University, where she earned a master's degree[5] and worked toward a doctorate in communications, but did not finish.[7][8] Newman has also received biblical studies training at Payne Theological Seminary in Wilberforce, Ohio.[6]

In the 1990s, Newman worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration. She later said the job had been "a very difficult environment, because they don't believe in training. They just kind of throw you in the fire."[9] Gore's former office administrator, Mary Margaret Overbey, has said in 2017, that Newman "was the worst hire we ever made."[10] She was later transferred to Clinton's Commerce Department via the White House personnel office.[9] Cheryl Shavers, who then served as the Commerce Department's Undersecretary for Technology Administration, said that Newman was "unqualified and disruptive," adding, "I had her removed."[10]

Newman first came to public attention in 2004 after becoming a participant on the first season of NBC's reality television series, The Apprentice. Stemming from her confrontational persona on The Apprentice (particularly in its boardroom segments), Newman soon became the "woman America loved to hate"[11] and was named by E! as “reality TV's number one bad girl“.[12] Newman has disagreed with the "villain" label, rather believing herself to be "a shrewd businesswoman," asserting that when a man behaves assertively, he is seen as strong, but when a woman does so, she is portrayed negatively. Newman has also claimed the show's producers have manipulated footage of her to make her look like the villain.[11] She was “fired” in week 9.
