Election day is almost here, and honestly, it couldn’t have come soon enough. It’s safe to say most of us have election fatigue, and even frustration, as the candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, battle it out for the highest office in the land. But, for Trump Senior Advisor, Omarosa, the effects of her Donald support my last long after the election is over.

Omarosa has taken a lot of flack for supporting the Republican presidential nominee, but that doesn’t seem to concern her one bit. “I could care very less, little about what people think about me,” the former Apprentice star told HipHollywood while at the Soul Train Awards, “I’m never going to be enslaved by what people think about me.”

And even though she’s received death threats over her support of Trump, she believes the work she is doing is helping the Black community, not hurting it. “What I realized by working so closely with him is how many Caucasians have no idea who we are, they don’t know about our culture because they haven’t been exposed to it. So we can just wag our finger at them and criticize them or we can teach them how to talk to us and how to appreciate our culture and how to approach us … we have to get out of our feelings. Somebody says something out of the side of their neck, you correct them and you keep pushing on.” Well, OK then!

Check out our full interview with Omarosa below, where she also gives an update on how Donald is doing following his security scare in Reno, NV.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
