During her time on the show, she is still talking about Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and more about her time in the White House. What has she said and what new reports are coming out about her past? Here are seven things to know, including why Manigault Newman called out Pence on the show.

Manigault Newman has made her return to reality television, and now, reports of what possibly happened while she was in the White House is coming out. Apparently, she was escorted out of the White House and fired from the position of communications director for the Office of Public Liaison because of her misuse of car service.
Officials told Politico she was dismissed for using the White House car service, known as “CARPET,” as a pickup and drop off service, which is forbidden by the federal government. After she was dismissed, she reportedly tried to get into the White House residence to speak to Trump and accidentally tripped a Secret Service wire that monitors the residence.
This goes along with previous reports from April Ryan that Manigault Newman got into a screaming match and then was escorted off the property by Secret Service.

4. She said Pence is worse than Trump
On an episode of Celebrity Big Brother, Manigault Newman told the rest of the house what she really thinks about Pence.
“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” she said. “Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for days of Trump if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying. He’s extreme.”

While on the show, the reality has star also touched on religion and specifically, the religious beliefs of Pence. “I’m Christian, I love Jesus,” she said on the show. “But [Pence] thinks Jesus tells him to say things. I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.'”

This isn’t a revelation either, but Manigault Newman also tied President Trump’s desire for a wall at the border of Mexico to the fight over immigration and the recent government shutdown it caused.
“The DACA piece came as a result of [Trump] wanting his wall,” she said on the show. “Barack Obama’s administration said, ‘If you sign up, and basically out yourself — that you’re here illegally — we’ll protect you.’ All these people signed up — outed themselves, their families, people that were in hiding. Then Donald Trump got in and that was his little executive order.”
She then continued, “The crackdowns are happening, they’re aggressive and they’re intentional and they’re gonna get worse. But don’t get me wrong — the Obama administration was aggressive about deportation, too. But nobody talks about it.”
Next: She previously claimed she was haunted by tweets while working in the White House.
7. She tried to downplay her support of Trump on the show
This wasn’t the first time the reality star brought up her time on the White House on the show. She previously attempted to distance herself from Trump when talking to fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Ross Mathews.
“I felt like it was like a call of duty. I felt like I was serving my country, not serving him,” she said. “It was always about the country. I was haunted by tweets every single day, like what is he going to tweet next?”
