— Omarosa Manigault Newman shared some of her experience in the Trump White House while on “Celebrity Big Brother.”
Manigault Newman is part of the cast on the CBS reality TV show, which places 11 celebrities in a house filled with cameras for two and a half weeks, watching them compete for a $250,000 grand prize.
CBS reported that the former White House aide confided in TV personality Ross Matthews about why she joined the White House staff and what she thinks about the status of the country under President Trump. For Newman Manigault, it was a sense of patriotic duty, not serving Trump.
“I felt like it was a call of duty, I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” Manigault Newman said. “Like, I was haunted by tweets every single day, like, ‘What is he gonna tweet next?’”
“All of the people around him attacked me,” she said. “It was like, ‘Keep her away, don’t give her access, don’t let her talk to him.’ It’s like, Ivanka's there, Jared’s there...”

The former “Apprentice” contestant said she tried to prevent Trump from tweeting, but was stopped by others on staff.
“I’d like to say, ‘It’s not my circus, not my monkeys,” Manigault Newman said. “I'’d like to say, ‘Not my problem,’ but I can't say that because it’s bad.”
When Matthews asked for reassurance that things would work out, Manigault Newman couldn’t provide it.
“It’s going to not be OK,” Newman said. “It's not. It’s so bad.”
Manigault Newman left the White House in January after announcing she was leaving her role in December.

— Olivia Munn has opened up about ex Aaron Rodgers’ family issues nearly one year after their split.
Munn appeared on Sirius XM’s “Andy Cohen Live” and said she only met the NFL Green Bay quarterback’s parents “a couple of times.”
“Before he and I started dating, he hadn’t spoken to one of the brothers and his parents for eight months,” Munn told Cohen, according to Bravo TV.
US Weekly reports that Munn and Rodgers dated for three years before their split in 2017.
Rodgers’ brother, Jordan, got the final rose on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” during the show’s 2016 season.
She told Cohen that she encouraged Rodgers to work on his family relationships. At one point, she said that she helped him draft bullet points to guide a conversation.
“I just think it’s really important to try to mend things in a family. And I encourage that,” Munn told Cohen. “But at the end of the day, I do believe that family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success.”
While they were together, Munn was blamed for causing the rift between Rodgers and his family, 24-7 Sports reports.
Rodgers is currently dating professional racing driver Danica Patrick.

— Actress Alicia Silverstone and her husband, Christopher Jarecki, have gone their separate ways after 20 years together. They were married for 12 years.
The couple confirmed the news in a statement to People on Monday.
“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together whom they will continue to co-parent,” Silverstone’s representative said.
The couple wed in June 2005 in a small ceremony in Lake Tahoe and share one son, Bear Blu, 6, together. They started dating eight years before, in 1997.
“So fun playing in the water with Bear. Swimming, boogie boarding and just savoring. We’ve been staying at my friend’s home while he is away,” Silverstone wrote on one post. “Driving around in his big truck was fun in the rain and mud. Bear and I played with this adorable little man we met on the beach with his beautiful mom. And somehow, even cleaning the kitchen (constantly) and doing laundry here is fun.”
