Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth mostly known only as "Omarosa" (born Omaroseonee O. Manigault February 15, 1974) is a former participant on Donald Trump's television reality show The Apprentice. Omarosa was born in Youngstown, Ohio where she attended Rayen High School. She has gone on to appear on various talk shows and other reality shows, where her strong personality has often been the source of controversy. Her partner was late actor Michael Clarke Duncan.

Omarosa's appearance on Trump's The Apprentice ended on Week Nine, when she was "fired" (see Season 1). During the final episode, in which two finalists competed, contestant Kwame Jackson chose Omarosa as part of his final team. Trump complained that Jackson was unable to control Omarosa and added that he should have fired her.
