Omarosa Manigault Stallworth, of “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice” fame has, well, found a new calling. A publicist for the reality show villain confirms for us that she plans to enter United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio for training to become a minister. Uh-huh, yep. I'm serious.
A spokesperson for the seminary tells CNN Entertainment/Showbiz Tonight the following in a statement:
“She has been accepted. We have offered her a scholarship through our Baptist House of Studies and will be releasing a statement soon detailing her new challenge here at United Seminary as she begins her residency. United Seminary is one of the 13 United Methodist Seminaries in the United States and has a long and celebrated history with the African American Church and social justice advocacy.”
She starts classes on Monday, studying for a Doctorate of Ministry. “I feel like God is calling me. He’s been calling me for two years and I can’t ignore it,” Omarosa told Sister to Sister Magazine.
Does it make me evil and cynical to say, I'm not so convinced her motives are all that holy? I mean, the girl still has a publicist. What do you think? Do you think it's really a change of life? If she does eventually become a minister, would her words of moral and religious guidance carry any weight?
