Omarosa Sent to the Hospital While Competing on Celebrity Big Brother
UPDATE: Following her trip to the hospital, Omarosa Manigault-Newman has arrived back in the Celebrity Big Brother house on Saturday just after 4:30 p.m PT.
On Saturday evening, CBS issued a statement addressing the health issue: “Omarosa has returned to the Celebrity Big Brother house after receiving medical attention last night and today for an asthma attack. This development will be addressed on the Sunday night broadcast.”
The game of Celebrity Big Brother just got a bit trickier for Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
“Omarosa had everything to lose, I mean, I put her in the hospital,” Marissa Jaret Winokur told fellow contestant Ross Mathews after completing the show’s “Head of Household” competition. “She’s going to be okay.”
During their chat, the pair also referenced former contestant Christmas Abbott who suffered a broken ankle during the show.
After leaving the house to meet with doctors, Christmas was ultimately allowed back into the competition and made it into the Top 3—crutches included.
Marissa to Ross (3:20 AM)- This is hilarious that you and I knocked out those people. Omarosa had everything to lose. I didnt. I mean, I put her in the hospital. She is going to be okay #CBBUS#BBCeleb

CBS has not responded to E! News’ request for comment on the reported injury. The “Head of Household” competition is expected to air on Sunday’s all-new episode.
As of press time, Omarosa had not yet returned to the house causing some houseguests to question where she is and how she is doing.
In less than a week, Omarosa has made headlines for revealing details about her time in the White House with President Donald Trump. She also brought up houseguest Keshia Knight Pulliam‘s former co-star Bill Cosby.
Big Time Rush member James Maslow, Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Brandi Glanville (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Metta World Peace (former NBA player) and Ariadna Gutierrez (Miss Universe 2015) are also part of this season.
