*Can anyone suggest the right wine to go with the Crow we’re having for dinner after reporting earlier that Omarosa Manigault Newman‘s book, “Unhinged” wasn’t a best seller. Yep, that was then. NOW we can report that Omarosa’s Trump tell-all is atop the New York Time’s best-seller lists. So yes, the news follows theories and speculation about why the book wasn’t “burning up the sales charts” on the day it was released.
According to Deadline, “Unhinged” topped both the print hardcover and the combined print and e-book best sellers list, according to the Times chart, which was shared with publishers on Wednesday. Some of the sales data indicates that the book started climbing Amazon’s best sellers chart following Donald Trump’s tweets labeling her “Wacky Omarosa” and referring to her as a “dog.”
The outlet notes that the tweets generated more news coverage and curiosity which in turn generated more sales.
Publisher Gallery Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster) said in a press statement that the author “continues to promote the book and is committed to sharing her story.”

Meanwhile, as the former White House aide and Trump ally continues to make the press rounds promoting the book, Omarosa and her pastor husband are being sued.
As reported by the Miami Herald, the couple is being sued by The Jacksonville Golf and Country Club Property Owners Association, demanding that they make crucial fixes to their four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 3,048-square-foot home.
Photos published by The Daily Mail shows its exterior in disrepair.
The $615,000 home sits on a golf course.
The suit was filed back in June after Omarosa and hubby John Newman apparently disregarded pleas to fix up the place.
via Miami Herald:
The lawsuit claims that there is mold on the roof, a filthy pool that attracts mosquitoes and needs “complete chemical treatment,” plus a dead tree “resting on a fence.” The suit also demands $11,063 in back fees and charges.
“Such maintenance shall include but not be limited to paint, repair, roof repair, roof repair and replacement, gutter, downspouts, exterior building surfaces, and yard cleanup and/or maintenance,” the suit reads.
A hearing is set for Oct. 15, according to Duval County court records.
