Omarosa Manigault Newman, known simply as Omarosa, confirmed Wednesday she was vacating her position in President Donald Trump's administration. Manigault was expected to officially exit her White House post Jan. 20, 2018, according to reports.

Manigault's claim to fame emerged in 2004 through her involvement in the American adaptation of "The Apprentice," which was previously hosted by Trump. She is worth an estimated $3.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Her role as a contestant on "The Apprentice" opened up future opportunities to her within the franchise, including earning a spot on its subsequent sequels such as "Celebrity Apprentice." She then appeared on a variety of reality programs like "I Love New York" and "The Surreal Life," but also managed to parlay her stint as a reality star into securing acting roles.

The 43-year-old former reality television star eventually nabbed a position in Trump's administration as the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison. Through this position, she earned an annual salary of $179,700, according to an official report released in June by the White House. 

Her position as a White House staffer was her first steady gig in a while. 

Manigault announced in July 2016 at the Republican National Convention that she would take on the role of director of African-American outreach for Trump's presidential campaign. While she had previously been very vocal on her support for the president-elect, she hasn't spoken about her exit from her position within Trump's administration. 

Trey Yingst, a reporter for One America News, claimed to have reached out to Manigault for comment on her departure from the White House to determine whether she was fired or had simply resigned. Yingst said Wednesday on Twitter that "she said she'd have to give me a call back and hung up."

The White House did give an official statement on Manigault's exit, which they claimed to be a resignation to explore other opportunities. 

"Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities," White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Wednesday, according to the New York Times. "Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service."

Manigault's next career phase hasn't been confirmed at this time.
