Omarosa Manigault first achieved fame during her stint on The Apprentice Season 1 in 2004 — and back then, she wasn't exactly known for being a sweetheart. But, what is it really like to work with the woman who's been labeled a "reality TV villain?" Brandi Glanville has some scoop on that. 

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock or the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum recently teamed up with Manigault for a run on Celebrity Big Brother. Since the show centers on a group of people living in close quarters, one could assume that Brandi got to know the infamous personality pretty well. Or, did she? 

When Brandi stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on March 6, a fan asked whether she feels like she got to know the real Omarosa. "No, I don't think [Omarosa] knows the real Omarosa," Brandi said. "She's an evil genius." 

Andy Cohen later asked Brandi what she thinks of Omarosa backtracking from comments she'd made about the Trump administration in the Big Brother house, claiming that statements she'd made on the show had been edited. (ICYMI: Omarosa was Trump's director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, until her resignation in December.) 

"She's full-on a liar," Brandi said. "[During filming, producers] kept on saying, 'Omarosa, don't forget, you have a contract, you're going to get sued.' They kept calling her in, because she was just speaking out ... She thinks she can do whatever she wants and get away with it. It's interesting." 

While at the Clubhouse, Brandi also spilled the tea on her feud with Teen Mom personality Amber Portwood, with whom she appeared on Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars Family Edition. "She came for me," Brandi clarified. "I said she was a narcissist, and so she lunged at me. Thank God for the Mob Wives; they all jumped in. They were like: 'Don't hurt Brandi!' But I was taking off my earrings — I was going in!" 

Brandi also weighed in on the state of her relationship with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his wife LeeAnn Rimes. Watch the clip below to see where things stand today.
