Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” contestant and Trump White House aide who has been making the rounds of the news shows hawking her new book “Unhinged,” appears to be having trouble getting booked on CNN.
The New York Post’s Page Six quotes an insider saying: “Don Lemon was offered one of the first cable interviews and passed.”
“We’re told Manigault Newman was also scheduled to appear on Jake Tapper’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday, but CNN canceled the appearance,” The Post adds. “Another source said CNN was initially only interested in booking commentators who would trash-talk the reality-show vixen.”
That source is quoted saying: “They only wanted to book guests with nothing positive to say about her. They were specifically looking for people who would provide a more negative slant when discussing Omarosa.”
