Trump, Omarosa Reunite for Dating Series
Donald Trump, Omarosa
The Apprentice's infamous one-named villain, Omarosa, is looking for the one — with a little help from The Donald.
The ex-contestant (formerly known as Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth) will reunite with Donald Trump for a dating reality series called Omarosa's Ultimate Merger, in which she will try to find a man out of 12 business-minded suitors, Variety reports.

"Omarosa was a great personality on The Apprentice that was watched by over 40 million people as it became the No. 1 show on TV," Trump said. "Omarosa is smart, witty and difficult, but all of those qualities will make for some very interesting entertainment."
The series is being made for cable's TV One and will feature Trump doling out love advice to his former protégé. It will be filmed at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas.
Robert Horowitz, an executive producer on the show, said the dating show's producers intend to depict her as anything but the heavy this time.
"We do not want to bill her or portray her as a villain," he said. "That's not what this is. You will like Omarosa; you may not want her for your son or brother, but you will easily see where she has a lot of positives in her life. She's a smart woman, and she knows what she needs to do."
