Omarosa: Bad Girl Gone Good?



Omarosa may be dubbed one of reality TV’s bad girls, but according to her, that’s not who she really is.

HipHollywood recently caught up with the newly ordained minister, who explained that her TV persona is just for fun and entertainment, nothing more. “When I get called to tape a reality show for two or three days it’s fun like a vacation,” she explained. “ I go, I show up, I stir things up, I cash the check, it clears, I go home. It’s just fun, you know what I mean, but people they think everything they see on reality TV is real, come on now.”

People will get a chance to see the real Omarosa on Oprah: Where Are They Now? In her sit down with Lady O, Omarosa opens up about how she’s coping with the untimely death of her fiancé, Michael Clark Duncan, and her recent call to ministry. “I believe it’s going to be eye opening for people who don’t understand my call,” said Omarosa. “People see me on The Apprentice one day and then see me or try to visualize me on the pulpit but this will allow people to understand that that’s work and this [is] my call.”

Oprah: Where Are They Now? airs Tuesday, April 2 at 10pm on OWN. Will you be watching?


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
