Reality TV star turned ordained minister, Omarosa Manigault, doesn’t seem to be phased by recent remarks made about her by her former friend and All-Star Celebrity Apprentice cast-mate, Claudia Jordan.
Omarosa tells HipHollywood she believes Claudia was just upset that she was sent home from the show, and adds that Claudia and Latoya Jackson, whom she is filing a lawsuit against, are “sore losers.”
“Both Claudia, Latoya, Bret Michaels, all of them felt victim to the fact that I’m just a better player,” she explained. “I’m smarter, I’m sharper and as a result they are very bitter and angry. It’s terrible to be a sore loser,” she added. “And all of those comments you notice, all those insults and comments and came after they lost and that’s just bad form.”
Claudia, who was kicked off Apprentice on March 24, recently told Wendy Williams that she saw another side of Omarosa while taping the reality TV show. “We were friends. I knew her outside of Apprentice so everyone would ask me, ‘Why are you friends with that girl? She’s rotten, she’s evil.’ I saw a different side of her.”
Wendy says that the two fell out after the funeral of actor Michael Clark Duncan, Omarosa’s fiancé. Claudia told Wendy that she wasn’t aware that Omarosa took issue with her posting a picture of the funeral on Instagram. “You know what’s funny about that, this is my first time hearing this,” said Jordan. For her to have an issue with me putting up a tribute to Michael Clarke Duncan who was my friend, this woman had a red carpet at her fiance’s funeral. I think that’s a little bit more despicable. She was doing press at the funeral. How upset were you?”
Omarosa, who is still competing on Apprentice, says she didn’t see Jordan on The Wendy Williams Show, but is hoping people will tune in on Tuesday, April 2 for her episode of Oprah’s Where Are They Now.
Check out a clip from the show below, and be sure to check back Monday for our full interview with Omarosa regarding her call to ministry and how it’s helped her grieve the loss of her fiancé Michael Clark Duncan.
5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs
If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.
1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.
In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary.
2. He’s funny.
Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.
3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.
In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
4. He’s a rapper.
His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle.
5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.
The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
