I'm Surprised This Hasn't Gotten More Press

Did anyone see the CNN article about Omarosa Manigault Stallworth of “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice?” Apparently, she is going to be attending divinity school on a scholarship. She is studying for a Doctorate of Ministry.

While I didn't watch the the complete first season that she was on The Apprentice, I caught glimpses of some of Omarosa's more infamous outbursts. I did, however, watch her on Celebrity Apprentice and felt her attacks on Piers Morgan were particularly vicious.

So you can imagine my surprise after reading about the newer, softer Omarosa.

Publicity stunt or Genuine change of heart? Your thoughts....

She had a Cameo on passions way back when....

and those are my only thoughts on THAT. :P

I can not imagine that. I did watch her boy will they have their hands full transforming her. And on a scholarship? Aren't there people more deserving than her? Lord, I hope so!

Tammy Howard said...

I stay away from reality TV, but I knew about her on accounta living in the world and all...

So with what little I've got to go on, I'm gonna go with skeptical on the change of heart and mildly outraged at the scholarship...

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

She makes me want to gag. We actually watched the first season in which she appeared and I might actually say we hated her. I vote stunt!

Kathie @ my net finds said...

Maybe it is genuine, I don't know, but I do doubt it. I remember being really surprised reading about it!

Lemondrop Marie said...

And on a scholarship no less... interesting! I hope it's sincere, but have to wonder.

Amanda said...

TOTAL fakeness. I saw her on...what is that show where the semi-celebs are in the house together... her and Janice Dickenson went at it.

I truly thought OM was EVIL. Always have. People that can manipulate like she does do NOT have a relationship with Jesus.

Dont you love how I turned this into a talk about Jesus??

Hey! Your kid home yet?

Lucy said...

As much as I love Reality T.V. the Apprentice shows are ones I have never seen BUT I am interested in as to why she would need a scholarship?? Hmmm.

Jen said...

When is this lady going to go away??

AK said...

I have never seen this show. SO not so sure what should I vote for. But from the comments, one thing is clear for me and that most of 'em think that it is more of a stunt than change of heart.But we cannot be sure. We never know when the Lord heals a person. It can happen to anyone at anyplace. So let's wait and see.

Thank you so much for joining me Carma.I will try keeping up with expectations of all my friends including you, about my blog...Keep reading and keep blogging.

Seriously? Omarosa??? I watched her in both the original Apprentice and the Celebrity Apprentice - she seemed even meaner on Celebrity Apprentice. Definitely has to be a publicity stunt. Either that or they're trying to change her public image. Not sure they'll be all that successful. ;)

Shawn said...

Don't have any thoughts----was just doing good to try and catch up on your fabulous blog---whew!

You are amazing!

April Belle said...

I saw this too! My first thought was "no effing way!" But as I read the article more, I couldn't help thinking... this is SO Omarosa.

Now she'll have access to a "legitimate" bully pulpit so to speak. I cannot even imagine her spin on scripture...

I will say no more. But honestly... it scares me!

Yankee Girl said...

I have never seen The Apprentice because I think anyone willing to go on that show has to have a large mean streak. I don't like watching other people be mean and manipulative to each other.

I guess there is hope for all of us but it just doesn't seem realistic.

Well I'm always amazed at people when they make an announcemment that they are turning their lives over to God or they choose ministry AFTER they have run the streets, etc. Why wasn't God [big G] their first choice when other temptations were dangled in front of them? That's all I have to say about that.

Rebecca Jo said...

First thing that came to mind "God help us"... did you see her on "The Surreal Life" where her & Janice Dickinson were ready to KILL each other? Yeah - there's Christian love right there...

Laura said...

I never saw either show but I am having a HARD time believin this one! I mean ser.i.ous.ly! What is she up to now???

Housewife Savant said...

She's a glory seeker and a self-promoter. She's ugly inside and out. She's a B-word and I hate her.
Don't make me say anything bad about her.

Joy said...

Publicity stunt that tanked.

Tina said...

My mama told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say, not to say nothing at all....

JennyMac said...

WOW..this is surprising given that she was an uber b*tch on both shows. And then flashed her fake implants all over the red carpet as much as possible after those shows concluded. The Holy Trinity might be a bit shook up...

Stephanie Faris said...

I've only watched The Apprentice once, and it was the Celebrity Apprentice you wrote about...and only the final few episodes. She did seem harsh but also like the type of person who could lead a large group of people. Maybe she just does better when in that position? Because there certainly are a few in positions of leadership in this country who do well among those who are beneath them but cannot get along with those at their own level.

Janna Bee said...

Is that a rhetorical question? Every bone in her body is fake!

Mary said...

Hi! Popping over to visit from SITS roll call.

I actually just saw this today on something on tv. I hope for her sake that it is real - if only to soften her character and bring out some humility. God loves to work on people who never thought they needed Him before. And boy, does He work on them.

~Kristen~ said...

Well, I am not a fan of Omarosa at all from what little I have seen of her, and this could very well be a stunt, but how do we know? If people can be in prison and find God and bring Him in to their lives I think she can to.

angelcel said...

I don't know this person but reading the comments here she clearly isn't about to win any popularity contests.

What struck me (and it has nothing to do with anything but I'm just adding my ha'peth worth) is how she looks like she could be Michelle Obama's sister.

Unknown Mami said...

Very strange.

Whaaaaaaat?? How is that possible??? Oi!
