Omarosa Manigault hasn’t been in the Big Brother house long and she’s already spilling the tea on her time in the White House.
During a tearful chat with TV personality Ross Mathews, the former Trump aide put on the waterworks after being pressed about her decision to work for President Donald Trump.
“As a voter, as a citizen, I never got it…why you went to the White House with him” Mathews said, to which Manigault replied that she felt taking the job was “a call to duty.”
“I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” she said.
Manigault also touched on Trump’s incessant Twitter fingers, saying that she was “haunted by tweets everyday.”
“Like what is he going to tweet next?” she recalled.
Mathews, seemingly trying to pin Omarosa down on some form of accountability, pressed her further asking “Does anybody say what are you doing?”
“I tried to be that person, and then everyone around him attacked me,” she explained. “They were like keep her away, don’t give her access.”
‘It’s not my circus’
Things took an interesting turn in the conversation when Omarosa described the happenings in the Trump White House as a “circus,” suggesting that we should all be worried about the country.
“It’s not my circus, it’s not my monkeys,” Manigault said. “I like to say it’s not my problem but I can’t say that because it’s bad.”
That prompted Mathews to ask the Apprentice veteran if the country should be worried, to which Manigault nodded her head to signify ‘yes.’
“It’s not going to be OK. It’s not,” she added.

Though Omarosa may seem compelling, the internet doesn’t seem to be buying her tearful monologue. Some are flat out calling her a bonafide actress.
“Omarosa has these lines ready to go. This is 2018,” Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson tweeted.
‘People want to stab me in the back’
While Omarosa appears to be emotional and connecting with her co-stars on Big Brother: Celebrity Edition, it all seems to be a part of her social strategy for the reality competition show.
“There’s a lot of people that want to stab me in the back, kind of similar to the White House,” she said during her entrance into the Big Brother house. “The one thing I learned from politics is you have to learn how to watch your own back and in some cases you have to watch your front too.”
Omarosa, who said she was a big fan of the show, said that she came to win.
“As I enter into the ‘Big Brother’ house, as challenges come my way, I will seek to overcome each and every one of them,” she said. “I’m exceptional in everything that I do and aspire to do. I was the queen of the boardroom now I’ll be the queen of the ‘Big Brother’ house. Celebrities, you better watch your back.”
