I'm thinking about making Omarosa the poster child for this site, since she can be counted on to act Dangerously Stupid.

Anyway, I thought the last time I discussed her would be the end of her fifteen minutes. Alas, she's gone into Warhol Overtime. This week's People discusses her tenure as a 'worker' in the Clinton/Gore White House and Commerce Department. [All quotes from the 19 April 2004 People print edition.]

Perhaps unsurprisingly, she doesn't come off too well. First, there was a stint on what, yes, technically was a job on algore's staff, although I think calling her position 'social secretary' would simultaneously insult both real secretaries and social coordinators:

At her first White House gig, answering invitations received by Vice President Al Gore, "she didn't do her job and it got everybody in trouble," says a former Gore staffer.
Next, she was transferred to the White House personnel office. Not much comment on her job there, but I'm guessing she didn't distinguish herself, since she was later transferred to a job at the Commerce Department. She was transferred to another Commerce job because, "says another former administration official, 'because she couldn't get along with people.'"

For the coup de grace, we manage to get somebody to speak on the record:

At her last [job at Commerce], "she was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive," says Cheryl Shavers, the former Under Secretary [sic] for Technology . . .. "One woman wanted to slug her."

So now you have to figure she knows she's busted. Au contraire:

"I'm a moving target. As soon as they think they've figured Omarosa out, I've already moved on to a whole different industry."
Yeah. As in "Moved on one step ahead of getting fired, to somewhere they don't know me."

Despite being cold-busted as a liar by The Donald on live national TV, she still claims she's "inundated with job offers," to which I can only reply "There's a sucker born every minute."

Speaking of which, we have this Einstein weighing in on the issue in this week's MailBag. According to Crystal C. Brown, of Houston:

Black women who are assertive are always labeled aggressive and often singled out in the workplace. Omarosa is beautiful, intelligent, and savvy, and I'm certain she will find continued success without sacrificing her morals, ethics, or integrity.
...only because she doesn't have any of those left! NSA Rice is assertive. Oprah is assertive. Whoopi is assertive. I'd trust any of them with my life before I'd trust Omarosa to find out the correct time.

I've already put in my two cents about the evil that is Omarosa. Chris over at Dangerous Logic has more on this grave and gathering threat to humanity. PS - Besides learning the interesting tidbits on Omarosa, we also learn... Read More

Chris over at Dangerous Logic is Omarosa blogging again. Like a dog with a bone, that kid. I have some earlier hyperbolic thoughts on this... Read More


You know that I respect you and enjoy your posts. However, this time you have gone too far. You have now become my absolute hero for being able to discuss the media ho with any kind of calmness. Every time I start to say her name a vein in my forehead starts to pop out. Besides my idle hatred of a woman I've never met, I also have for her: contempt, disgust, and fury. When she played the race card in the third week (wasn't it the third? Maybe the second?) I lost all respect for her. When I hear people defending her, they always use the same language that she uses herself. They identify her, as she identifies herself, as "black woman" and assume that her "aggressiveness" and whatever else is a result of us not being able to handle "aggressiveness" in a "Black Woman". It's the worst kind of race baiting.

Anyway, I've written a whole novel here, and violated my own rule about giving air time to her, so I'll close here.

Rock on!

PS. I forgot to rant about the "book deal" that the hobitch apparently has, and the fact that she's set to "host a primetime tv show". WTF? Do I live in the freakin Twilight Zone? What could she possibly have to say that would justify either of these "deals"? I loved your other post about her with the psychoanalysis. Perfecto!

Okay, now I'll quit.


Testify, sister!

OTOH, Jerry Springer still doesn't have any trouble filling out his guest lists, despite the fact that everybody knows every show's going to be an ambush...

Sure, I sound calm and rational now, but you should have seen me whenever she got any screen time. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

I knew Kwame was going to lose when he asked her what the dinnertime phone call was about, and she said "I'm not going to have that conversation right now," AND HE LET HER!

I'd have said "Like hell you're not; if you don't like it, there's the door!"

"Osama-rosa." :)

Can't stand her, and I LOVE aggressive women!

What can I add that hasn't been said already... I am with you RightThinkingGirl. Just thinking her name makes a vein pop out and I get so riled... GGRRRrrrrr.

I love that word... Media ho... haha.. I was thinking that but didn't find the words "Media ho"
god I love it!! She is so wrong and I just wish Kwame had tossed her aside like some tired old rag, because this woman is... so tired!!!
