While President Trump was off hosting — but not golfing with — Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, former Apprentice contestant-turned-White House public liaison leader Omarosa Manigault became a preacher’s wife on Saturday.
“Just married!” she tweeted later in the afternoon, after tying the knot with Florida pastor Dr. John Allen Newman.
The ceremony was held Saturday morning at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, TMZ and the New York Daily News reported. TMZ featured video of the couple making their arrival at the reception.
Omarosa wore the pink, full-skirted, embroidered gown and custom veil that she was seen in during her appearance on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress. The episode airs tonight (8 ET/PT).
In her financial disclosure form, which was released along with those of other White House staffers last week, she stipulated that she was given the dress, a custom veil and other merchandise valued at $25,000 from Kleinfeld’s, the New York bridal outfitter featured in the reality show.
The couple got engaged in July 2016.
This was Omarosa’s second walk down the aisle. She was previously married to Aaron Stallworth, from whom she split in 2005. Prior to her relationship with Newman, she dated and said she was engaged toThe Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan, who died at 54 in 2012 following a heart attack.
