Piers Morgan, the most loathed man in British media, took aim at Omarosa Manigault, his stateside counterpart, claiming that she offered him sex when the two were on the set of The Apprentice — and resorted to vicious insults when he declined.
Omarosa — who is currently appearing on Celebrity Big Brother to dish about her time in President Donald Trump’s White House — once starred in The Apprentice and subsequent Celebrity Apprentice, both Trump productions. The latter was where Omarosa clashed bitterly with media personality Morgan.
But according to Morgan’s new column in the Daily Mail, what ended in acrimony started with a lecherous proposition:
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. Everyone has sex together. Then we can make lots of money out of it.’ I stared at her grasping, ferociously ambitious little eyes, and laughed: ‘You must be joking, you deluded woman.’ She didn’t take it well. ‘What are you? Gay?’
“From that moment, she turned on me like a viper,” Morgan writes.
I can honestly say I’ve never been spoken to in my life like the disgusting, foul-mouthed, homophobic way Omarosa spat at me throughout the weeks of filming.
At the time, I was separated from my ex-wife, and mother of three of my four children – a fact Omarosa seized on with glee.
‘The mother of your children hates you Piers,’ she giggled on camera one morning, ‘and your children f**king hate you, they’re embarrassed by you. Is there another man raising your children?’
Morgan goes on to detail a series of instances in which Omarosa questioned his sexuality, including once trying to convince Trump that he was a closeted gay man.
“Shut the fuck up, asshole,” she allegedly once snarled at Morgan. “How are your kids going to feel when they wake up and discover their dad’s a fucking faggot?”
Beneath the laughs though lay a less savoury truth: 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.
