Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault was hospitalized during the filming of Celebrity Big Brother, reportedly due to an asthma attack.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Manigault’s fellow Celebrity Big Brother cast members were heard discussing her hospitalization on the show’s live feed on Saturday. Manigault appears to have suffered an asthma attack following a challenge in which competitors were told to spin around until they were dizzy and then bowl.
CBS confirmed in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter that the former Apprentice contestant has been treated and released.
“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.”
Manigault was formerly the White House Office of Public Liaison, until she left the position amid controversy late last year. It remains unclear if she left voluntarily or was fired.
