Former Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigualt-Stallworth has come out swinging after Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel dissed her during an appearance on The View. Frankel said on The View Thursday that she could not be compared to Omarosa because she had made a “real career” out of her reality TV fame.
“I think she’s an interesting example because she used [her time on a reality show] to be infamous,” Frankel said of Omarosa. “I have a real career. I have a brand, I have a very popular cocktail, I have two New York Times Bestsellers, I have my own show.”
Omarosa, known for her allegedly terrible temper and tendency to rant angrily about whatever pisses her off, slammed back at Frankel over the comments.
“The gloves are off,” Omarosa said, according to PerezHilton.com. “Today [Bethenny Frankel] tried to act like her show was superior to my new show and her book was superior to my book or her career was superior,” Omarosa said. “I was surprised that she went there with me!! She got her start or the Apprentice just like me. She is on a NBC show just like I was. She is making a living in the world of reality just like me.”
Taking things to an even nastier level, Omarosa said Frankel had a tummy tuck after giving birth and lied about losing her baby weight naturally. Even snarkier, Omaraso said everyone knows Frankel’s husband, Jason Hoppy, is gay “but we never said anything – because she was HAPPY.”
