Exclusive: Omarosa Manigault “I’m Running For LA School Board Because I Can Connect”



If you hadn’t heard, Omarosa Manigault is running for the Los Angeles School Board and she is hitting the streets hard to campaign.

The reality star, most known for her appearance on Donald Trump’s The Apprentice, attended BET’s Annual Celebration of Gospel over the weekend to  support the event, but also to … Get some votes.

“The election is June 3rd, I’m running against nine other people and I need you all to vote for me,” Omarosa told HipHollywood while on the red carpet. “It’s a special election. Unfortunately, the woman that was in the seat, the only African American member of the board, had a heart attack and passed away in December. Members of the community, my congregation said ‘why don’t you step up and go for the seat?’ So I did,” she told us.

The 40-year-old, Ohio native who was engaged to the late Michael Clarke Duncan before his passing, does not have any kids. But according to the star, she can relate to the children she is fighting for.

“I connect because I was those kids. I grew up in the projects of Youngstown, Ohio, I went through public schools. I know the effect that fear, crime and poverty can have on young people. That’s why I’m fighting so hard for the children in district 1 of the Los Angeles School Board.”

Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
