Votes Are In - Omarosa is a Bitch

Omarosa 100% Bitch

Omarosa Manigault-Stallingworth, the women who says: I'm going to crush my competition and I'm going to enjoy doing it." The black chick with a 'tude on NBC's Apprentice is a bitch. There is no doubt. Sure you can peddle the "strong women" argument. But that dog won't hunt in this field. Some other opinions:

Jenice M. Armstrong of the Philadelphia Daily News is upset that people are calling Omarosa a bitch:
I always cringe when I hear people referring to strong, assertive women that way. Martha Stewart? Bitch. Sen. Hillary Clinton, -----. It's so tired.

Yeah, I know Omarosa is, well, abrasive. And even if it were true - and it was - girlfriend shouldn't have told that contestant with the weird eyebrows last week that she didn't have class. And Omarosa should have gotten Mizrahi's name right. Having dragged herself from the projects to a job at the White House, she should know better.

But the b-word? Why is that always the first word out of someone's mouth when they're talking about a tough, decisive woman?
Charlotte Hays of the Independent Women's Forum, says, no, Omarosa really is a bitch:
But more than the slacking, it's the way she treats people that makes Omarosa richly deserving of the b-label. Even Donald Trump, a denizen of the famously rough and tumble world of New York real estate, was shocked by Omarosa's rudeness."You were rude. You are rude," said an obviously shaken Trump. Omarosa is the sort of person who can make an office hell for other people.

She is far more than the "abrasive" Armstrong is willing to concede.

I cringe when I hear bitches defended as merely being assertive women.

It is a disservice to all of us.
Sara Butler thinks: "Ms. Armstrong may be right that assertive women can get unfairly labeled as bitches, in this specific case, I'm going to have to go with Ms. Hays. Omarosa's problem isn't just the way she asserts herself, but the way she's unnecessarily not nice to the people around her."

Deb says: "in Thursday’s episode, Omarosa is being her usual bitchy self and now she tops it off with sheer laziness…busted drama queen laziness!"
