Omarosa, one of reality TV’s earlier beeyatches, is back in the reality circuit but this time looking for love. She was probably one of Donald Trump‘s most memorable contestants who appeared on season 1 of “The Apprentice” as the bright yet take no mess “villianesse” (I think I just made up a word…cool!) on the show. Since then, Omarosa also appeared on VH1‘s “The Surreal Life” which is usually an indication that your career is on the outs…
But sista girl, Omarosa Manigault-Stallwort, ain’t havin’ it!
Now she’s back with love doctor Trump on “The Ultimate Merger” premiering tonight on TV One. “What’s TV One?” my non-African American readers may be asking. In short, it’s basically another BET style network with what some say has some better programming choices (go to www.tvoneonline.com). TV One may have seen a diamond in the rough by scooping up the show, but it also might lead to the show’s demise, despite promoting on the talk show circuit, in terms of mass popularity potential.
Check out the preview below…
PRESS RELEASE — Real estate billionaire and entertainment mogul Donald J. Trump has partnered with TV One on a groundbreaking new reality series, Donald J. Trump Presents “The Ultimate Merger,” in which Omarosa, “The Apprentice” cast member Mr. Trump helped make into a reality TV star, sets out in search of the perfect mate.

And while it has been a much more emotional and dramatic experience than I ever expected, I look forward to making the Ultimate Merger.”
