While Manigault may want to start wedding planning, she’ll have to focus on her new job with Donald Trump.
He recently named her the Director of African-American Outreach for his presidential campaign, according to MSNBC.
A request for comment from Manigault wasn’t immediately returned.
During one episode of “Celebrity Apprentice,” British television personality Piers Morgan noted the incongruity. “And you don’t have star power.” But Manigault had one thing going for her that superseded everything else.
Newman popped the question in front of his congregation at The Sanctuary @ Mt. The pair reportedly met while Manigault, 42, was teaching at Howard University.
Pastoring is something the couple has in common as Manigault is an assistant pastor at Weller Street Baptist Church in Los Angeles.
“I adore you,” Trump told her in a 2013 episode of “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” a subsequent spin-off that convened “Celebrity Apprentice” contestants from previous seasons. You helped make ‘The Apprentice.’ You helped to make me a star.” A moment later, Trump “fired” her, the third time he’d done so on national television. Now, Trump has cast Manigault in another unlikely role, as an adviser in his White House — a twist that would seem implausible even on reality TV.
Among the president’s eclectic cast of senior advisers, Manigault has said that Trump sees her as “his Valerie Jarrett,” a reference to President Obama's close personal friend who was a central powerbroker in the Obama White House.
