Former reality star turned White House aide turned reality star Omarosa Manigault-Newman is still going strong — and spilling tea — as a contestant on "Celebrity Big Brother."
On Monday night's episode, Manigault-Newman, who previously declared on the show that she wouldn't vote for Donald Trump again "in a million years," said a Mike Pence administration would actually be worse.
"As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence," she said. "So everybody that's wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives. We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president."
"He's extreme," she said of the vice president. "I'm Christian. I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. I'm like, 'Jesus ain't saying that.' " In addition to being a reality show veteran, Manigault-Newman is an ordained minister.
As the “Big Brother” contestants sat around to discuss illegal immigration and the Obama-era program known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), Manigault-Newman also chimed in with her expert 2 cents.
"No, we're not OK," she said. "I've seen the plan. The round-up plan is getting more and more aggressive."
Earlier in the show, fellow contestant Ross Mathews said, "Every time (Manigault-Newman) opens her mouth I'm like, ‘Is she going to drop a bomb?’ "
And the answer, of course, is yes. It also might be a part of the former senior White House aide's strategy. Who doesn't want to hang around and gossip with the woman willing to spill all the political tea on her former boss who just so happens to be the leader of the free world?
Manigault-Newman, who was saved from eviction Monday night, is still a major contender on the show, which runs until Feb. 25. The "bombs" she's been dropping thus far have prompted a response from the White House. During a press briefing last week, Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah dismissed the former senior aide.
"Omarosa was fired three times on 'The Apprentice,' and this was the fourth time we let her go," Shah said.
