Manigault actually earned the same amount as Kellyanne Conway. Though Manigault insisted that she chose to resign from her position, Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah clarified that Manigault was let go. During a press conference, Shah said, “Omarosa was fired three times on The Apprentice, and this is the fourth time we’ve let her go.”

Manigault was one of 22 staffers for the Trump administration receiving the highest salary, according to a White House report.

Duncan died in 2012 at 54 years old of a heart attack. Manigault was the one who announced his death, after performing CPR on him personally when she found him. Some estimates of Duncan’s worth put it as high as $18 million, but Manigault likely split the estate between multiple people, including Duncan’s mother and sister.

4. Omarosa Landed a ‘Seven Figure’ Book Deal to ‘Spill the Beans on Trump’

According to The Washington Examiner, Manigault signed an undisclosed amount surpassing seven figures for her book deal, which is supposed to be released mid-August.

The book, titled ‘Unhinged,’ is set to detail Manigault’s time in the White House. Manigault reportedly leveraged secret audio tapes that she’d recorded of her conversation with the president as leverage for her book deal, according to CNN. 

It’s unclear whether Manigault’s current estimated net worth of $3.5 million includes her recent book deal. If not, the book deal could set her net worth far closer to $5 million, or even higher.
