Omarosa calls Robin Roberts 'petty,' declares 'black woman civil war'

Newman also teased that she has a story to tell in the future. "And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear".

It supposedly was not clear - even to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly - what her responsibilities were exactly.

"It has been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff", she said. "A secret service agent stopped her, while another said, 'Eh, I want to see how this plays out".

"There were a lot of things that I observed during the past year that I was very unhappy with, that I was very uncomfortable with", she said.

"That was petty", Manigault-Newman told Inside Edition when asked about the remark. She went on to become the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liason and one of roughly 30 assistants to the president. "It's a black woman civil war".

Omarosa appeared on Trump's NBC reality series The Apprentice in 2004 and Celebrity Apprentice in 2008 and 2013. The Ohio native also collaborated with Trump in 2010 on a dating show called The Ultimate Merger, in which 12 men competed for the businesswoman's heart.


Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy has a theory as to why many in the media have reacted so gleefully to Omarosa Manigualt's dramatic ouster from the White House.

During the presidential campaign, the president sought black Americans asking: "What the hell do you have to lose?"

The White House could not say on Thursday how many African-Americans now work in the building. "More than anything we've seen before", says Cordova.

She said she was the one who resigned, after seeing things in the administration that made her "very uncomfortable".

Jackson, whose relationship was once close with Manigault but he says now is beyond fix, said of the White House official: 'She was just a tyrant.

Black Republicans who would otherwise be working with the administration said they are hopeful that they will have a productive relationship with Kelly and other senior White House officials, especially when it comes to the HBCUs initiative, once Manigault is out of the picture.
