On 'Celebrity Big Brother,' Omarosa Says We Should Be 'Worried' About Trump: 'Everything's Not Going To Be Okay'
Omarosa claimed she ultimately just wanted to serve the country, not Trump.
The Omarosa/Trump saga has been heating up ever since she left the White House. A little over a week ago, it was announced that Omarosa Manigault would be returning to her reality show roots by starring in Celebrity Big Brother.
A sneak peek of the upcoming show was released and yes, there was a bit of Trump tea.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Manigault was asked flat-out by TV personality Ross Matthews: "I never got it ... why [did you go] to the White House?"
"I felt like it was a call to duty," Manigault explained through tears, "I felt like I was serving my country, not serving [Trump]."
She went on to break her silence about what she went through as Trump's Director of Communications.
"I was haunted by tweets every single day, like 'What is he going to tweet next?'"
Omarosa claimed that she tried to stop the president from tweeting, but that "all of the people around him attacked me. It was like, 'Keep her away from him. Don't give her access. Don't let her talk to him.' Ivanka's there, Jared [Kushner's] there."
She said that she realized eventually, "It's not my circus, not my monkeys. I'd like to say not my problem, but I can't say that because it's bad."
Matthews then asked the ultimate question, "Should we be worried?" and Manigault nodded. After Matthews expressed chagrin, saying that he hoped she would say everything would be okay, she firmly said, "Everything's not going to be okay."
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah responded to her comments during Thursday's briefing noting, "Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice, and this was the fourth time we let her go. She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now."
On a somewhat lighter note, another teaser clip has been shared this week; this one shows the former White House official explaining her strategy to emerge from the Big Brother house victorious:
