Actress Vivica A. Fox couldn’t get the “no” out fast enough when presented with the possibility of playing Omarosa Manigault Newman in a movie.
Asked about that possibility by a TMZ camera guy, Fox not only said no, but she said it repeatedly. And then she took a pot shot at President Donald Trump.
“That’s not a role I would play, fortunately,” she added. “But I will say that if they do decide to make her movie, it’s definitely full of scandal, myself as an actress I’d have no desire to play that.”
“It depends on how good that book does. If that book sells, they may do the story of Omarosa,” she said about the possibility of others taking the role. “If it doesn’t, she’ll just have to ride off into the sunset.”
Fox then took a veiled shot at Trump while mixing up her metaphors.
“On a donkey,” she continued, “because she connected herself to an *ss and when you lay down with dogs, you get fleas.”
As for snubbing Omarosa, that appears to be the chic thing to do, with even CNN said to be giving the former realty TV star a cold shoulder — which is huge, given that she is peddling anti-Trump wares.
Page Six reported that the controversial former White House staffer hasn’t been able to book an appearance on CNN.
CNN anchor Don Lemon was said to have passed on an interview with Omarosa and a scheduled appearance Sunday on “State of the Union,” featuring Jake Tapper, was reportedly cancelled by the network.
The latest from Omarosa is that Trump “wants to start a race war in this country,” as she told race hustler Al Sharpton on Sunday. That assertion ranking up there with a claim in her book that the president will deport the first lady, Melania Trump, if she divorces him — never mind that she is now a U.S. citizen.
“If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave him while he’s in office, he would find a way to punish her,” she wrote.
Suddenly, avoiding Omarosa seems like a really smart thing to do.
