Ex-'Apprentice' Star Omarosa to Tell All About White House

"[Chief of Staff] John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised and, as a result, I resigned", Manigault said on ABC News' "Good Morning America". "No one else has reported what she's reporting and this is the one person who has attacked me for the past year so you know this is personal". "As the only African American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that made me feel uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply an emotionally, that has affected my community and my people".

A CNN political commentator cackled with joy at the news that White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman is no longer part of the Donald Trump administration-and she wasn't the only black woman celebrating the dismissal.

Omarosa says she quit the White House but it's with a large group of black people in homes all over America she found herself with at odds Thursday.

Despite rumors that Manigault-Newman's access to the White House was revoked, Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The Washington Post in an email that Manigault Newman's resignation will not be effective until January 20.

Manigault Newman was also expected to be at the White House on Thursday, Huckabee Sanders said.

She also denied reports that she made a spectacle of herself while being escorted from the White House grounds, calling the stories "100 percent false" and questioning why photos or video of her alleged misbehavior had yet to surface.

The former Apprentice star sat down with Roberts' co-anchor Michael Strahan Thursday to discuss her exit from the Trump administration, which was announced Wednesday. And so, you know, I hope you find something to do, O.

Newman contends that she resigned from her position and was not fired.

Manigault-Newman responded to Roberts's comments by saying they were "petty". Only one thing is clear: Somehow, for some reason, Newman, the Trump adviser who first gained fame with Trump on "The Apprentice", is leaving the White House reality show.

Two other women told Variety Hoffman sexually assaulted them while filming 1987's Ishtar. She added that her departure will leave Trump without any African-American representation on his senior staff. Manigault Newman was one of 22 Trump staffers receiving the top salary, and not the only one to surrender it.

"Thank you Omarosa for your service! And I just, you know, never mind".

Manigault Newman described her conversation with Kelly as being "very candid". She was portrayed as a cut-throat contestant during the season.
