“Sometimes people think I’m so strong that people forget what I've been through. It just means so much to me. I won for the Sue Duncan Children’s Center. My fiance was an alumni of that center,” Omarosa said.
After winning as project manager for the task on-hand, Omarosa broke down in tears.
LaToya Jackson stated Omarosa is using this as a card to manipulate herself through the game to soar to the top and win.
Reality TV star Omarosa Manigault returned to this season’s ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice’ and designated the Sue Duncan Children’s Center in Chicago as her charity of choice in honor of her late fiancé.
She was engaged to ‘The Green Mile’ actor Michael Clark Duncan who passed away last September from complications of a heart attack. A native Chicagoan, Duncan credited the Center for putting him on the path to success during his childhood.
The $40,000 Omarosa raised as project manager on behalf of the Sue Duncan Children’s Center will bring the center closer to its goal of opening additional sites serving Chicago’s Woodlawn and Englewood neighborhoods. In addition this will help provide additional technology resources for the kids at the original Oakland site.
If what the other celebrities on ‘The Apprentice’ are implying is true or not, the bad girl of reality TV is still in the thrones of grief. Taking that grief and turning into something positive and good is noteworthy.
After her first stint on the series, Omarosa was voted as the number one villain of reality TV and she may play that ultimate all-time bad girl for television but she is taking this opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause.
The Center has been highly effective in transforming children academically and socially, 100% of the children who attend the Center show remarkable progress with their grades, test scores, behavior, self-esteem, and planning for the future.
In reference to her choice of charity, Omarosa said in a press statement, “I feel very blessed to have this opportunity to raise money for a charity that is near and dear to my heart. These last few months have been the worst of my life. The world lost a great actor and incredible human being, but I lost my best friend, fiancé, and the love of my life. I chose to compete on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” to honor him and his legacy. Sue Duncan Children’s Center is an organization that Michael was very passionate about. He and Sue have always had a special connection and she served as a mentor to Michael throughout his entire life. I truly hope to make a positive impact on the kids and raise much needed funds for the Center.”
