Even though she may be facing a lawsuit from her former “Celebrity Apprentice” co-star, LaToya Jackson isn’t retracting her comments about Omarosa Manigault.
LaToya was eliminated from “Celebrity Apprentice” Sunday night and was regretting her decision not to bring Omarosa into the boardroom to face Donald Trump. After being fired, she said: “She’s conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Clarke Duncan.”
For Omarosa, who was engaged to Michael and present when he suffered a heart attack that ultimately claimed his life, that comment crossed the line.
Omarosa, who is credited with helping save and prolong Michael’s life, has reportedly hired an attorney to represent her in a slander suit against LaToya.
“Rev. Manigault has been heralded as a life saver for her actions on the evening that her fiancé suffered a life-ending heart attack,” read a statement provided via RadarOnline.com. Omarosa’s representative described LaToya’s comments as “repulsive” and “of the lowest level of class.”
Though she told “Today” that she didn’t mean to imply that Omarosa caused Michael’s death, LaToya continued to express her belief that Omarosa is using her fiancé’s passing to her advantage on the show.
“That’s what every teammate was saying, and we all feel that way,” LaToya told Wendy Williams. “I’m just puzzled at how a guy so kind, so sweet could be mates with someone like that.”
