Omarosa Calls Bethenny ‘Mediocre,’ During Heated Argument [Video]

Rucuss staffOctober 31, 2013

Celebrity Apprentice alum Omarosa Manigault and talk show host Bethenny Frankel rubbed each other the wrong way during Wednesday’s show.

Omarosa and Bethenny have been at odds since 2010. Bethenny blasted Omarosa doing an episode of The View. Hosts attempted to compare her to Omarosa and Bethenny got offended.

Bethenny told the hosts that she is different because she has a real career, a brand, a show, and two New York Times best-sellers under her belt. From there, Omarosa snapped back by claiming Bethenny’s hubby was gay, and calling her a b-tch.

Now three years later, the two were at each throats again. Bethenny tried to deny that she ever talked bad about Omarosa. She denied that she said, “I have a real career.”  She even bet Omarosa $10,000 that she didn’t say it. But moments later when they pulled up the transcript online, it was revealed she did say it.

Bethenny didn’t back down. She asked Omarosa what exactly was her brand. Omarosa began by saying that she was under the impression that she and Bethenny were friends, and felt a bit disappointed when she made some not so nice comments about her.

“I actually thought we were friends…So, maybe you were just trying to use that to get information,” Omarosa said.”To go on ‘The View’ and bad mouth me to my friend, it’s bad forum.”

Omarosa also said:

“I’m unapologetic about being a strong, African American woman who does not apologize. It’s different for you and I.  I’m an African American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.

I think it’s important to understand that you don’t stay a decade on television, on reality TV, without being smart and creating a brand that people want to see. If the audience didn’t want to see Omarosa, they would never book me again. You booked me to be on your show today. There’s a brand there. There’s a commodity.[…]

You’re not walking in your own truth. The moment you accept your real truth, everything is going to open up for you. Everything, your happiness, your joy, your relationships, but it cannot happen until you accept your own truth. Truth is, 10 years later I’m still here. I hope that you’re still here a year from now.”

Bethenny replied, “I meant what I said. You do have a career. I invited you here because you know — I don’t think that you have a brand. I think that you’re infamous. I’m on the show because I want to give a point of view. I don’t think you have a brand.”

Omarosa: Honey, you made cupcakes. I worked in the White House. Get a grip!

Bethenny: What’s your brand?

Omarosa: I’m a strong businesswoman who celebrates in being smart — and there is a brand in being smart.

Bethenny: Your brand is smart? So Omarosa’s brand is being smart. Is that in your business plan?

Omarosa: Oh, absolutely. Hear this out, you’re entitled to your opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts. I have an accomplished career.

Bethenny: What is it? What is your business?

Omarosa: I teach young people and I hope that the young people don’t get discouraged from watching two women who have an opportunity to put things behind them. We have a chance to turn this thing around.

Bethenny: No we don’t.
