*Would it surprise you to know that Omarosa Manigault’s new job as a White House
puppet liaison is reportedly the most regular paycheck she’s had in a while?
USA Today reports that her finances were detailed in one of dozens of disclosure reports released by the White House late Friday. Donald Trump’s apprentice-turned-political consultant lived off royalty checks and appearance fees prior to joining his team — in addition to her $46,000 salary from the Trump campaign and presidential transition.
Manigault also received royalty checks worth less than $5,000 for her appearance on “Raising Whitley,” and less than $2,500 each for “The Steve Harvey Show,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “David Tutera Celebrations.”

She also banked half-dozen appearance fees of $1,000 to $5,000 for local plays, corporate functions, church events, and Omarosa made $400 as a substitute teacher from the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Her biggest payday came with a bridal package worth $25,000 from Kleinfeld’s in New York City, which she received free as part of a celebrity appearance on TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress.”
In 2000, Omarosa married Aaron Stallworth and they separated fives years later. She was engaged to “Green Mile” actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who died of a heart attack in 2012. He reportedly left her part of a trust fund that’s worth between $1 million and $5 million.
The actress and certified special education teacher got engaged last July to Jacksonville pastor John Allen Newman. She dished to People about the style of the ring, the dress and her Democrat fiancé. Most recently she held a lavish bridal shower in Washington.
In related news, Manigault, who is currently Trump’s director of communications for public liaison, walked out of a National Newspaper Publishers Association meeting last week after a reporter asked her a “tough question.”
