Omarosa Manigault Newman claims Caitlyn Jenner was ‘very, very nasty’ to her in the Big Brother VIP house before branding her a ‘Karen’ in scathing radio interview
They’re two of the most well-known international stars set to be appear on the upcoming season of Big Brother VIP in Australia.
But according to Omarosa Manigault Newman, she didn’t see eye-to-eye with Caitlyn Jenner, 71, while filming the Channel Seven series together.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, the 47-year-old former advisor to Donald Trump claimed Caitlyn was ‘nasty’ to her in the house, and even branded her as a ‘Karen’ to hosts Jackie ‘O’ Henderson and Kyle Sandilands.

‘Honestly, she didn’t talk to me very much. She was very, very nasty to me,’ Omarosa scathed.
‘I thought I was going to get to know Caitlyn, but instead I got to know a “Karen”.’
A ‘Karen’ is a colloquial term used to describe a self-righteous woman, usually middle-aged, who tells people how to do their jobs, asserts their rights and complains to the manager.
Daily Mail Australia have contacted a representative for Caitlyn for further comment.
When asked if she connected with anyone else on the show, Omarosa cited AFL star Dayne Beams and NRL superstar Matt Cooper – who she described as her ‘bestie’.

Indeed, emotions are always heightened in the Big Brother house as celebrities are forced to spend every day together in close proximity.
However, earlier this year Caitlyn confirmed she was actually on the show for around a week in total, after revealing on Twitter she was ‘glad to be back’ in California for her campaign trail days after filming began in Sydney.
‘Great time abroad for fun and glad to be back in #California on the campaign trail!’ she wrote.
