Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former White House aide who is now a reality TV contestant on “Celebrity Big Brother,” described Melania Trump as “amazing” in Wednesday night’s episode. Newman, a former “Apprentice” contestant, has been critical of President Trump when discussing her tumultuous year in the White House to other show contestants.

“I don’t know why people don’t think she’s sharp,” Newman said. “She speaks so many languages … she’s sharp.”

Newman gave some behind-the-scenes information from her time at the White House. When asked about the residence, Newman said the Trumps had renovated the residence, although because it’s a “historic building,” there were “limitations” to what they could do.

But she complimented Melania Trump as having “impeccable taste.”

Since Newman knew Mr. Trump before she was in the White House, contestant Ross Mathews asked what she called Mr. Trump. She said they called him “Mr. President” and “the first month I would slip … but you snap out of it real quick when there are men with guns around.”

Newman, in a previous episode of “Celebrity Big Brother, told Matthews that she would “never in a million years” vote for Mr. Trump again.

“I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” Newman said. “I was haunted by tweets every single day, like what is he going to do?”

Newman has also called Vice President Mike President “scary” and “extreme.”

“We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying,” she added.
