Omarosa Manigault-Newman, previously starred on NBC’s “The Apprentice” during President Trump’s time as the reality show’s host and later became an aide at the white house (Now former aide) and now starring in Celebrity Big Brother, has compared the cast of the reality show to her former colleagues at the White House in the season’s debut episode on Wednesday.

Omarosa revealed that both the cast and her former White House coworkers would “stab her in the back” if given the chance.

She said: “There’s a lot of people that want to stab me in the back, kind of similar to the White House. The one thing I learned from politics is you have to learn how to watch your own back, and in some cases, you have to watch your front too.”

In her cast member introduction, Omarosa said that lessons she learned working for Trump would serve her well on the show.

“I am a reality TV legend. I am most famous for the first season of ‘The Apprentice’ and then I had an opportunity to work in Washington in the Trump White House. The one thing that I learned from politics is you have to know how to watch your own back — and in some instances, you gotta watch your front too,” she said.

She added:”After the very interesting year I’ve had, I’m actually looking forward to being away from … the press. I’m pretty sure that the world doesn’t know that I am a ‘Big Brother’ superfan. As I enter into the ‘Big Brother’ house, as challenges come my way, I will seek to overcome each and every one of them.”
