Piers Morgan says Omarosa offered him sex, called him homophobic slur while on 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Piers Morgan came out swinging against his former “Celebrity Apprentice” colleague Omarosa Manigault, saying that she offered him sex during their time on the reality series, then hurled a homophobic slur at him when he passed on her offer.

Morgan made his claims about Manigault, who recently made headlines due to her comments about the Trump administration during her stint on “Celebrity Big Brother,” in a Daily Mail column published Tuesday.

The British media personality held little back in his assessment of Omarosa, calling her “a vicious, duplicitous, lying, conniving, backstabbing piece of work.”

Morgan wrote that Manigault made her offer while they were taping the first season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” as they awaited details of their first challenge.

Jonathan Ernst: "The most visible person in any White House is naturally the President, followed by the press secretary. But there are also the staff who support them, any one of whom might suddenly jump into public view and be national news for a day or two. For those of us covering the President Trump administration, there seem to be more compelling figures in the West Wing than ever before. It's crucial to know who's who and why they're important. When I raised my camera and back-pedalled ahead of the group to take this image Lewandowski gave me a hello and pointed right into the lens. I liked the photo, but had no idea it would go a little bit viral, especially since Scaramucci, who was the biggest mover and shaker that week, was hidden back in the pack. But I guess the image catches a glimpse of what it's like to be a West Wing staffer on the road." REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File Photo SEARCH "POY TRUMP" FOR THIS STORY.

“Omarosa sidled up to me at the New York Mercantile Exchange and said, quite seriously, ‘Piers, do you want a showmance?’ ‘A what?’ I replied. ‘A showmance. You know, a romance on the show — we get it on together. Happens all the time on ‘Apprentice.’ Everyone has sex together. Then we can make lots of money out of it,'” Morgan wrote.

“I stared at her grasping, ferociously ambitious little eyes, and laughed,” Morgan continued. “‘You must be joking, you deluded woman.’ She didn’t take it well. ‘What are you? Gay?'”

According to Morgan, after he rejected the offer, Manigault decided to “repeatedly question my sexuality in the most crude and offensive manner.”

Among the instances, Morgan wrote, was when Manigault “snarled” at him, “Shut the f— up, a–hole … How are your kids going to feel when they wake up and discover their dad’s a f—ing f—-t?”

TheWrap has reached out to a representative for Manigault for comment regarding Morgan’s column.

Last week, Manigault — who came aboard “Celebrity Big Brother” shortly after her stint with the Trump administration — opened up about her former employer, saying that the country is “not going to be okay” with Trump in the White House.

Manigault told Ross Mathews that she felt a “call to duty” to serve in the administration when her former boss won the 2016 presidential election, but once he took office, things went south.

“I was haunted by tweets every single day. What is he gonna tweet next?” she told Mathews through tears. “I mean, I tried to be that [stabilizing] person, and then all of the people around him attacked me.”
