Omarosa Onee Manigault Newman (; born February 5, 1974), often mononymously known as Omarosa, is an American reality television show participant, writer, and former political aide to President Donald Trump. She became widely known as a contestant on the first season of NBC's reality television series The 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 on the first season of Celebrity Big Brother, making it to the final five of the season.
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 2 September 2020, 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.
She is also known as Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, Omarosa, Omarosa Manigault and Omarose Onee Manigault.
