Piers Morgan Claims Omarosa Offered Him Sex to Win ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

If you were one of the many viewers who caught Celebrity Apprentice in 2008, you know Piers Morgan and Omarosa Manigault don’t like each other.

Ten years ago, the foes were more than just opponents, they were full on enemies. And now that Omarosa is making waves in the Celebrity Big Brother house, Morgan has a lot to say. In a piece for The Daily Mail, the columnist spoke candidly about his former competitor, and what he had to say wasn’t the least bit pretty.

So what sparked this sudden outburst? According to Morgan, he was inspired to share his stance on Omarosa after it was revealed that White House staffer Rob Porter had allegedly committed domestic assault.

“[Trump] took this serial loser, and horrible human being, into the heart of the White House to spread her poison. In its way, that’s just as big a scandal as Rob Porter, yet nobody seems to care,” said Morgan. The Brit, who nabbed an interview with the president at the beginning of this year, then claimed that Omarosa offered him sex when they met on Celebrity Apprentice.

“Omarosa sidled up to me at the New York Mercantile Exchange and said, quite seriously: ‘Piers, do you want a showmance?’ ‘A what?’ I replied. ‘A showmance. You know, a romance on the show—we get it on together. Happens all the time on Apprentice… Then we can make lots of money out of it.’”

Morgan maintained he denied the offer, and “from that moment, she turned on me like a viper.” These claims have yet to be rebuffed by Manigault, and the journalist doubled down, concluding, “She did all this purely so it would bring her more airtime, and more attention.”

This new layer to the current Celebrity Big Brother contestant’s narrative doesn’t seem to be having any impact on her game play. In true Omarosa fashion, we’re sure she’ll respond hastily to these claims, because if there’s one thing we know about her, she doesn’t back down for anyone or anything.
