Omarosa Steps Into ‘House Of Villains’ Reality Show While Attending Law School
Omarosa might still have a bone to pick with Bethenny Frankel over a decade after reading her down on her daytime talk show.
The former White House staffer along with Tiffany “NY” Pollard, Tanisha Thomas, and Bobby Lytes are reality TV villains and proud! The quartet is among the 10 iconic and infamous reality television villains E! brought together under one roof for the new competition elimination series “House of Villains.”
The cast of notorious villains was put together to outsmart, out-manipulate, and out-scheme each other through a series of challenges in order to win a $200,000 cash prize and the title of “America’s Ultimate Supervillain.”
Hailing from some of the most popular reality television franchises, there’s Omarosa who rose to fame after competing on “The Apprentice” in 2004, Tiffany Pollard who became “NY” after competing on both seasons of “Flavor of Love,” Tanisha Thomas a veteran of the “Bad Girls Club,” and Bobby Lytes who’s become a staple on “Love & Hip Hop: Miami.”
Each week, the contestants compete in a challenge that tests their physical, mental, and emotional strength with the winner being safe from elimination and one person going home.
Filming the show was an even bigger challenge for Omarosa who was also busy attending classes at her 4th HBCU, Southern University and A&M College. The former political aide to Donald Trump is studying law in hopes of doing more advocacy work in politics and entertainment.
“I’m in law school at Southern University Law Center. I am entering my third year,” she told BLACK ENTERPRISE. “I’m a non -traditional student, so part -time. I’m also doing the JD MBA program.”
While the cast was spending their nights partying after challenges, Omarosa was upstairs in a closet using her “makeshift desk” to do her school work. As for those Omarosa bumped heads with, she called out the racial lines that were tested during episode one when Corinne Olympios (from “The Bachelor) “weaponized” her “white tears,” according to the reality TV vet.
“White women tears are very dangerous,” Omarosa said before explaining the exchange.
Another exchange she relived was her infamous 2013 appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s old talk show where she accused her of being awarded for being “mediocre” while citing the hard work Black women have to do to succeed.
When asked about the age-old encounter, Omarosa didn’t hold back while explaining the challenges Black women face on television. According to the former political aide to former U.S. President Donald Trump, Bethenny is “just blah” yet was awarded her own talk show while “exceptional, talented, beautiful” Black women “who show up” and do the work weren’t getting the same at the time. Bethenny’s former talk show ran from 2012 to 2014.
Elsewhere, Tanisha Thomas, who first appeared on “Bad Girls Club” in 2007 before going on to host the explosive reunion shows, hinted at “House of Villains” being her last hoorah.
“I think I’m probably done. This is probably the end of my reality era,” Tanisha said. “I want to own businesses. I want to host and I want to be a mom.”
