If you were expecting Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth’s upcoming reality show, ‘The Ultimate Merger,’ to be another ‘Flavor of Love’ or ‘I Love New York’ for that matter — you’ve got another thing coming.
The former star of ‘The Apprentice’ teamed up with her real estate mogul mentor Donald Trump for the new venture, which she she describes as “a mix between ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Bachelorette.'” The real-estate-tycoon-turned-reality-TV-kingpin and Manigault-Stallworth developed the show together.”When you have a development project with ‘the Donald’ you don’t pass it up,” Omarosa — as she is widely known — told BV Newswire this weekend. “Donald is invested in me and seeing me succeed and you have to have someone who is going to look after your success.”
As for the direction of ‘The Ultimate Merger,’ the Cleveland native describes her latest reality television venture as something distinctively her own.
“I really enjoyed the whole franchise, from ‘Flavor of Love’ to ‘Ray J,’ and I think there’s a place for that type of program, but this one is kind of different. Ain’t nobody passing out roses or writing poetry,’ she laughed.
