Omarosa, Former Star Of 'The Apprentice,' To Leave White House Post

You're fired!

Well, maybe not, but Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former star of Donald Trump's reality show, "The Apprentice," and one of the president's most prominent black supporters, is leaving the White House.

Omarosa joined the Trump administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, where she worked on outreach to various constituency groups.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says Omarosa’s resignation will be effective January 20, exactly one year since Trump’s inauguration.

“Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” Sanders said in a statement. “Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”

"She reportedly has drawn scrutiny from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for her work in the office designed to garner outside support for the president’s agenda," Fox News reported

"The former 'Apprentice' contestant recently drew press attention after she brought her 39-person bridal party inside the White House this past spring for an 'extended' photo shoot in the Rose Garden. It is unclear whether she had permission. She was reportedly banned from posting any of the photos online by White House officials citing security and ethical concerns. "

Others are expected to leave the White House early next year as well. Deputy national security advisor Dina Powell will leave the administration early next year, the White House announced last week.
