It appears as if former White House communications director Omarosa Manigault’s short stint with the Trump administration was a mere gap stop en route to her destiny of being a veteran reality television star.

Following her controversial December departure from the White House, the former The Apprentice contestant’s future looked a bit glum. But she seems to be doing just fine. In addition to talk of a possible memoir and signing on as a speaker for the American Program Bureau, she’ll also be a house-guest on Celebrity Big Brother.

The announcement Manigault would be returning to her reality TV roots came about on Sunday night.

On the CBS reality series and game show, Manigault will be shacked up with Cosby Show actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and former NBA star Metta World Peace among others. The former Trump staffer will be competing alongside 10 other cast members to win $250,000. Former contestants include boxer Evander Holyfield, former basketball star Dennis Rodman and singer La Toya Jackson.

The competition is slated to premiere Feb. 7.
