Piers Morgan has accused former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman of coming on to him in exchange for her to win the “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
The British journalist even called Omarosa a “relentlessly loathsome” person and questioned how she was even able to obtain a job within Trump’s administration.
“I’ve met a lot of vile human beings in my life, from dictators and terrorists to sex abusers and wicked conmen. But I’ve never met anyone quite so relentlessly loathsome as Omarosa; a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work,” Morgan said.
Because the focus right now is on White House employee screening & I find the hiring of Omarosa as scandalous as that of Rob Porter. https://t.co/wX60k8FMdV

In his op-ed, Morgan details a conversation between himself and the former Trump aide during the first season of the Trump-hosted “The Celebrity Apprentice,” during which Manigault-Newman allegedly offered to create a “showmance” between the two contestants, which Manigault Newman claimed would make them both “lots of money.”
” ‘Piers, do you want a showmance?’ ” Morgan quotes the former White House aide as saying.
” ‘A showmance. You know, a romance on the show — we get it on together. Happens all the time on Apprentice. Everyone has sex together. Then we can make lots of money out of it,’ ” she reportedly added.
Morgan said that when he turned down the offer Manigault-Newman questioned his sexuality.
“You must be joking, you deluded woman,” Morgan reportedly said, “She didn’t take it well. ‘What are you? Gay?'”
“Beneath the laughs though lay a less savoury truth,” he said, “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.”
