Omarosa: "White House 'Crazier Than 'Celebrity Big Brother'"

Newman's latest comments on the topic came in response to her telling Celebrity Big Brother housemate Ross Matthews that the U.S.is going to "not be OK" under Trump's leadership. "Hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus", she said in a clip that aired Saturday but was filmed on her sixth day in the house.

"Awful, awful, unacceptable, awful, awful, awful, awful, unacceptable, unequivocally unacceptable, awful", she said. She was willing to discuss her disapproval of Trump's Twitter habit, but avoided expressing displeasure with his political platforms. This convo was about President Trump. When asked, she said we would not be okay.

CBS has yet to respond to Mathews' request, and they may not, but one thing is for certain.

Omarosa Manigualt may not have won "Celebrity Big Brother", but the former White House staff became the talk of the town - and perhaps, even the world. She added, to Colbert, that he might feel the same way "if your best friend was president".

Omarosa Manigault-Newman has left the Celebrity Big Brother house and she is ready to unleash.

"And it's landed me here on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, so I'm doing OK", Omarosa said.

"I knew that viewers would connect with me because one, I'm a huge Big Brother super fan. Because you're laughing about it", Colbert said. Viewers and voters were shaken when, during a late-night heart-to-heart, Omarosa told Ross that the United States is "not going to be okay, it's not", under President Donald Trump. I don't know that that's, for someone who is in communication like Hope and myself, that's not a place you want to find out at 5 in the morning about something that would impact so many people's lives.

"He was my friend and watching him in this position has caused me to be excited sometimes and sometimes be very very concerned. I think if you woke up and your best friend was president tomorrow you'd have that same range of emotions".

Newman replied: "The White House that I worked in, that Trump administration, it was troubling and it was very hard".

Colbert then asked for further context for her comment about leaving the White House feeling like she'd been "freed from a plantation". "I didn't want to be the one to break it to him". And my analogy of it being a plantation, of being oppressed is pretty clear: "When you're not allowed to do the job that you were meant to do ... that's what they analogy meant", she said. "And that's what that analogy meant".
