Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph stopped by Hollywood Today to explain why she turned down an offer by friend Omarosa Manigault to work at The White House with Donald Trump.

“Omarosa and I meet at this church event. And I say, ‘Girlfriend, please don’t tell me your taking.. you’re doing.. what why?’ said Sheryl. “And she said, ‘Sheryl, I am going to the White House. I will have an office in the White House. I am riding this train and I’ve got a ticket for you if you would like to come along. And I was like, ‘Girlfriend; Imma have to miss that train.’”

Sheryl says she and Omarosa have “been friends a long time.”

“We don’t share the same politics; we don’t share the same thoughts. But, I like her,” she said

Meanwhile, Omarosa is set to marry Jacksonville pastor John Allen Newman — who happens to be a staunch Democrat — April 8, at his church, The Sanctuary at Mt. Calvary, on Kings Road northwest of downtown. It’s the same place where he asked her to marry him.

“I actually knelt right there, the end of worship, the fourth Sunday in July, and asked her to marry me in front of the congregation,” Newman said.

He admitted to that he was only vaguely aware of Manigault during her time in the reality-TV spotlight. As for her reputation of being reality television’s most famous villain, that was just a character, he said.

“She played a part. All of us have degrees of personality … she played a role, so to speak, because she wanted to win. A lot of people only see that and think that’s her, when there’s so much more to her than that.”
