Omarosa Marries Pastor Fiance’ Despite Death Threats From His Congregation

Omarosa Manigault, a senior staff member of President Donald Trump‘s administration and a former Apprentice cast member, got married in Trump’s Washington DC hotel this morning.

The 43-year-old ex-reality star tied the knot with Pastor John Allen Newman, 61, at the Old Post Pavilion in Trump Hotel, a stone’s throw from the White House.

About 70 people attended the wedding in the hotel’s Presidential Ballroom, which was followed by a brunch and reception.

Donald Trump and other White House senior staff remained at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida following Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit and after the US airstrike on Syria,.

The couple exchanged vows at an intimate private ceremony and the celebration went forward without incident – despite Omarosa’s concerns about death threats.

There was a brief scare when one of the bridesmaids nearly fainted at the end of the service.

Another guest brought the woman a glass of water and she recovered.

After the ceremony, the guests gathered for a brief cocktail reception in the hotel’s ornate art-deco lobby under a 200-foot-high glass ceiling.

Attendees included Lynne Patton, a former Trump SVP and now adviser to Ben Carson the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Also there were Niecy Nash of Reno 911! fame and Katrina Pierson, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign.

The newlyweds walked into the lobby arm-in-arm, with Omarosa waving a bouquet of pink and white roses.

Her husband wore a tan suit with a pink tie and a white flower in his lapel. Omarosa’s mother, Theresa Manigault, looked stunning at nearly 70 years old in an off-white sequined dress with a plunging neckline.
