According to transition officials for President-elect Donald Trump, the infamous woman from the first season of Trump's reality show, Omarosa Manigault The Apprentice will be entering into Trump's cabinet as public liaison.

Manigault is known for being a nasty contestant during her nine week stint on The Apprentice before she was fired by Trump himself. Her attitude and tactics were so verbose, however, that Manigault made a recognized name for herself, causing her to reappear on the The Apprentice, as well as other reality TV shows.

From CNBC:

Manigault was one of Trump's most prominent African-American supporters during the campaign and has been working with his transition team. Her effusive praise of Trump has at times drawn criticism.

"Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump," she said in an interview for a PBS "Frontline" documentary about the presidential campaign. "It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe."

This won't be the first time Manigault has been working at the White House, however. She also has served former Vice President Al Gore when President Bill Clinton was in office.
