On the latest episode of “The Apprentice,” the all-star edition, LaToya Jackson made a series of very hurtful comments about Omarosa, saying she probably gave fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan the heart attack that killed him. Omarosa is now suing LaToya.
As we also reported the other day, LaToya ripped into Omarosa twice on the same episode, once before she was eliminated and once afterwards. Video is below.
On both occasions, she was trying to argument that Omarosa was such a vile, horrible person that she probably gave Duncan the heart attack that killed him last year. The “gentle giant” was just 54 when he died.
Initially, Omarosa only addressed the comments on Twitter, saying she was “saddened” to hear LaToya had said those things but, now that she’s had time to reconsider, she’s taking her to court for label.
“La Toya Jackson’s statement on the March 17, 2013 episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, that the Reverend Omarosa Manigault caused her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan to die, is false, vicious and defamatory,” Omarosa’s attorney says in a statement for Radar Online.
“Rev. Manigault has been heralded as a life saver for her actions on the evening that her fiancé suffered a life-ending heart attack. It is because of her bravery that Mr. Duncan – the love of Rev. Manigault’s life – was able to live for months beyond that tragic night. Mr. Duncan passed away from natural causes,” the statement continues.
LaToya should have never tried to take out on Omarosa her frustration at having been eliminated from the show, let alone by touching on such a painful topic, the attorney further argues.
“Ms. Jackson made the statement immediately after having been ‘fired’ off the show, and blames Rev. Manigault for her loss. It is repulsive and of the lowest level of class for Ms. Jackson, who showed herself to be a ‘sore loser’ in making these disgusting statements in the wake of Rev. Manigault’s tragic loss,” the statement explains.
The attorney concludes by saying Omarosa is determined to pursue the matter to “the full extent of the law.”
It's never been confirmed that Michael Clarke Duncan (R.I.P.) and Omarosa were engaged - that was only stated (by Omarosa?) AFTER his death. Omarosa apparently also said that they were planning to start a family - again, this statement was made AFTER his death. Omarosa, on the Apprentice Show, professes to work at OK magazine and that she runs 1/2 of the country - can't seem to find confirmation of this either. Shame on Amarosa for wanting to sue someone else when it is Amarosa's comments that should be sued about

Omarosa is like a school yard bully and is using this so she can get some press...i hope she is fired soon from the apprentice and Trump never puts her on the show again.

omarosa did fake cry which other celebrities on the show caught on to and felt she was faking her emotions cause no tears came out and she would act sad then change to happy like a light switch which did appear fake and she did give La Toya a hard time on the show along with everyone else he day is coming you should try being a bit nicer omarosa cause you are burning alot of bridges with fellow team mates and others on the show I do believe you are hurting over Michael I did not know him in person but fell in love with him in the Green Mile and when I heard he died I also morned him so he will always be a gentle giant who was very sweet and handsome and will be forever missed
