Former White House staff Omarosa Manigault-Newman sexually harassed Piers Morgan after the latter refused to cave in to sex, the television host tweeted on Monday. The Celebrity Apprentice host revealed details of Omarosa's indecent proposal on the show to apparently make lots of money.
"Omarosa offered me sex to win Celebrity Apprentice, then called me a 'f---ing f-gg-t', invented gay smears & threatened to punch me," he tweeted. "Why the hell was this vile creature ever employed at the White House?"
Omarosa was offered a job as a public liaison at the White House shortly after her stint on Celebrity Apprentice. Her role in the country's center of governance has been fueled with controversy, and critics have since then questioned her qualifications.
Refusing A 'Showmance'
Morgan, 52, described Omarosa as a disgusting human being and that the exact details of what transpired was far worse than what he tweeted. He added that the 44-year-old former political aide is a "vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work."
Omarosa allegedly offered Morgan a "showmance" or a romance on the show because apparently, Morgan incessantly refused, saying that the lady must be joking. Omarosa was outraged and started calling the host gay.
At the time of the Apprentice filming, Morgan was separated from his former wife and mother of their children, Marion Shalloe. He said Omarosa used the occasion to her advantage in attacking Morgan's sexuality and private life.
Morgan denied the allegation of being a gay, claiming that Omarosa did it to provoke confrontation. At one instance, Morgan said he was provoked to jokingly kiss another apprentice and country singer Trace Adkins.
"Omarosa is a reprehensible human being, prepared to offer sex to win a reality TV show and use the most vile homophobic slurs against rival contestants," wrote Morgan in an editorial column. "She did all this purely so it would bring her more airtime, and more attention."
Omarosa, who is now a cast of the Celebrity Big Brother House, has not yet responded to the issue.
'Not In A Million Years'
Meanwhile, Omarosa's dismissal from the Office of Public Liaison, formerly called the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, left a bitter taste in her mouth. She claimed he would never vote for Donald Trump again "in a million years."
Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah commented that Omarosa had limited contact with President Trump during her short stay at the White House and has no contact with him now.
Morgan's revelations prompted Twitter users on a media frenzy, saying they are not surprised Omarosa was capable of such act.
