Thanks, Wonkette, you’re a liberal but you get the goods. Today the Wonk-chick alerts us to an item in this week’s U.S. News & World Report‘s “Whispers” column informing us that Omarosa Manigault-Stalworth, the wicked witch/slacker on our favorite reality show, The Apprentice, alienated almost as many people when she worked for Vice President Al Gore as she does today clawing for the $250,000-a-year job as amanuensis to Donald Trump on NBC. According to U.S. News (fifth item down):
“[Omarosa] honed her annoying ways while on Vice President Al Gore’s staff. And the result was a carbon copy of the reaction she’s received on the Donald’s show: Some love her; some don’t. ‘The traits she displays on the show she displayed to us,’ says a disgusted former Gore insider of the ex-scheduler-receptionist who likes to drop names and avoid hard work. But others thought she was swell. ‘I loved her,’ says a top Gore aide. ‘I guess the others are just jealous of her.'”
Scheduler-receptionist? Is that what Omarosa was doing for Al? No wonder she blew the one project that she was assigned to manage on “The Apprentice.” We’ll keep you tuned on Omarosa’s fate when we file our weekly “Apprentice” report on Friday.
