She might be a little hard to digest, but she does have a point! Even though, I still feel like there is a place and time for everything.
Since 2010, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth has been feuding with former Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel. So when invited by the hostess to do the show Stallworth kindly accepted — knowing she was going to clear up some issues between them once and for all.
During her sit down with Bethenny, Omarosa touched on white verses black issue in America (bringing several issues to light) saying; “It’s different for you and I, I am an African American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and still get rewarded with things. Like your show for instance.”
The TV personality then continued, ‘we have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.’ However, the experienced political hack’s instincts soon kicked in, “you made cupcakes and I worked in the White House,” while she tried to explain her quotes. She added: ‘I wasn’t calling her (Bethenny) mediocre, clearly she’s doing well. I am here on your show and I think that’s fantastic.'”
Bethenny then tried to get in a dig of her own, telling her she did not mind the barb, because she made her $10,000 richer due to her appearance on the show. Watch the video below:
The famous quote from the exchange above left a sour taste in the mouth of not only the studio audience, but the host as well. As you can see, Bethenny did not appreciate the fact that her success was being attributed to her skin color rather than her hard work.
