Bethenny Frankel invited Omarosa on her show, and boy… did she get her money’s worth. Omarosa managed to offended not only host and arch nemesis Bethenny, but her entire audience of white women who evidently took exception to Omarosa’s harsh (but true) words on equality within the entertainment field.
“It’s different for you and I; I’m an African-American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.”
Omarosa was then quick to add that she wasn’t calling Bethenny “mediocre” before adding a comparison between Bethenny “making cupcakes” and her having “worked in the White House”. Needless to say, the remainder interview was tense. You can watch the clip below.
Does Omarosa have a point? Are African American women expected to be exceptional whilst their Caucasian equivalents get a ‘free pass’?
