LOS ANGELES (AP) The Latest on Omarosa Manigault Newman on "Celebrity Big Brother" (all times local):

7:30 p.m.

Former reality TV star and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman says she would never again vote for President Donald Trump.

Manigault Newman made the remark Thursday on "Celebrity Big Brother."

Manigault Newman was an assistant to the president until she left in December. She is now one of 11 cast members for the reality TV show "Celebrity Big Brother."

The actress met Trump as a contestant on his TV show "The Apprentice," which aired in 2004.

Her support of Trump was challenged by another Big Brother contestant, Keshia Knight Pulliam.

Manigault Newman compared her loyalty to the president to that of Knight Pulliam for Bill Cosby.

Previously, Knight Pulliam has said accusations of sexual abuse against Cosby don't reflect the man she worked with as a child actress on "The Cosby Show."

Knight Pulliam rejected the parallel.

Fellow contestant Ross Mathews says he wants her to say it's going to be OK. She says tearfully "it's going to not be OK."

Manigault Newman was an assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison until she left in December.
