During the first few episode of Celebrity Big Brother, contestants Omarosa and Keshia Knight Pulliam agreed to start their own two-woman alliance called “Black Girl Magic.” However, the ladies’ partnership didn’t stop them from addressing what they deemed to be the elephant in the room: their controversial former bosses.
Well, the ladies didn’t hold back when expressing their opinions about one another’s questionable decisions in supporting their ex-employers, and Wendy Williams took to her show to share her two cents.
During the episode, prior to Pulliam’s recent eviction, both the former White House official and child star had a candid talk about their respective public endorsements of President Donald Trump and Bill Cosby.
According to Us Magazine, Pulliam started the conversation, asking the notorious TV villain, “Do you feel like you were able to understand how people from the outside looking in just saw the hate that that campaign kind of incited and that you supported it?”
After taking a breath, Omarosa responded, first starting out by defending her decision to take the gig at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. before going in on the former The Cosby Show star.
“When you’re in the middle of the hurricane, it’s hard to see the destruction on the outer bands,” she said. “Since you’re asking me, you stood strong by somebody who you have known and have been loyal to and have known for a long time and who has supported you, and people judged you for that.”
Here, Omarosa is referencing Pulliam’s bold decision to publicly support her former TV dad, Bill Cosby, during his highly publicized trial for sexual assault.
“But only you know the inner workings of your relationship with Mr. Cosby,” Omarosa continued. “That’s the same thing with me and Mr. Trump.”
Pulliam went on to rebut her claims, saying, “it’s comparing apples to oranges,” and it seems as Williams agreed with her sentiment.
“The difference is that Rudy [Pulliam] went on The Cosby Show [with] all those kids not knowing that Bill Cosby is one of them,” she said during the Hot Topics segment of her show. “Omarosa knew full well, ahead of time, that Trump was one of them.”
That wasn’t all. The talk show maven, though initially defending Pulliam, went on to throw some shade her way, soon after.
