You never thought it would happen, but yes, Omarosa is back! The Apprentice season 1 candidate who makes up the punchline of at least 50% of all reality TV jokes (the other 50% being Gary Busey) has left a job in the Trump administration. But where has she been and how much is Omarosa’s net worth now?
The US Government is now officially a reality show. Omarosa has been given a job as “pubilc liason” leader for the White House. Surprisingly, this isn’t Omarosa’s first time in the U.S. government. She actually started her career in the Vice President’s office when Clinton was President. Apparently, though, that didn’t work out that well for her, as she was “banished from four jobs in two years with the Clinton administration,” according to People.
But Omarosa wasn’t getting rich in the US Government. The place where she really got her start was on the first season of The Apprentice. The show’s first season was a breakout hit, landing Omarosa a lot of publicity. Even though she wasn’t particularly good at business, her pugnacious style and do-anything-to-win attitude made her a household name. Having lost The Apprentice, Omarosa disappeared for a while, but was able to make some money via various TV and live appearances.
It turned out that Omarosa’s Trump connection helped her in the future, however. Through Trump, she got involved in multiple reality/game TV shows, which quickly increased her coffers. After that, she returned to school for a while, until she resurfaced to become a Trump surrogate, and the Director of African-American Outreach for Trump’s campaign.
Since leaving the Trump Administration, Omarosa has reportedly signed a $1.3 million deal to do Celebrity Big Brother and test out her own talk show on CBS. That should really enhance her chances of being extremely wealthy in the near future.
Meanwhile, it’s rumored that she has signed a book deal worth $1 million or more to dish on what happened inside the Trump Administration. You may remember that in an interview after leaving the White House, Omarosa told reporters that she has a lot to talk about, and a lot of things that occurred in the Trump Administration made her feel uncomfortable. It’s likely that she got a big advance on her book, and if her book sells anything like Michael Wolff’s book, she is likely to be very wealthy in the near future.
So what is Omarosa’s net worth? She recently made a cool $1.3 million selling her deceased ex-fiance’s home. She has also made some serious cash in her recent work with Trump — there’s a rumor that she was making nearly $400,000/year as his outreach director.
But none of that is comparable to how much Omarosa is making after leaving the White House. In the end, we estimate Omarosa Manigault’s net worth at $4-6 million in 2018.
