Former White House employee and reality star, Omarosa Manigault, reportedly had an asthma attack during a taping of Celebrity Big Brother, Entertainment Weekly reports.

According to the media outlet, a head of household competition that required her to spin and then knock over bowling pins triggered her attack.



Omarosa left the house and sought medical attention.

In Sunday’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother, Omarosa was one of the first houseguests to compete in the “Bowlerina” challenge. It required everyone to wear tutus and spin 11 times before attempring to roll balls up a ramp. After one guest triumphed in the first part of the challenge, Omarosa can be seen grabbing her inhaler and fleeing the backyard.

“I couldn’t breathe,” Omarosa said in the diary room. “It was really difficult to breathe. I knew I was in trouble with my asthma.”

Before the show cut to a commercial, she was then seen pounding on a door and calling for a medic.

“We were able to get my asthma under control,” Omarosa said in the diary room during Sunday’s episode. “It was a really scary experience. Thank God I am back in the game.”
