Omarosa Manigault took a temporary leave of the Celebrity Big Brother house this weekend after suffering an asthma attack on the set of the reality show.

The former Apprentice star-turned-White House staffer for Donald Trump was reportedly taken to the hospital for evaluation after competing in a physical challenge for the show and returned to the set Saturday evening.

In a statement, CBS confirmed the incident: "Omarosa has returned to the Celebrity Big Brother house after receiving medical attention last night and today for an asthma attack. This development will be addressed on the Sunday night broadcast."

Co-contestants Ross Mathews and Marissa Jaret Winokur were heard on the live feeds discussing the incident, indicating that Winokur had "knocked her out" before adding that "she'll be okay."
