Omarosa Manigault hitched her wagon to another older man got hitched at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

The White House adviser and Donald Trump apologist posted a lovely snap of her nuptials to Pastor John Allen Newman, 61, on Twitter that read, “Just Married! #HappilyEverNewman.”


E Online reports that the former Apprentice star wore a YSA Makino cap-sleeve, blush tulle beaded ball gown with a cathedral train and veil.

Omarosa, whose father is of Yoruba descent, also posted beautiful photos of herself adorned in an ornate, textured gold gele—the traditional head wrap worn for special occasions in Nigeria—and used the hashtag #Naija, a nod to her Nigerian roots. She also posted pics of her multilayer wedding cake drenched in white, pink and gold flowers.


Politico reports than Manigault, 43, had originally planned on exchanging vows with Newman in Jacksonville, Fla., in March, but ended up rescheduling and changing locations after getting death threats.


She was also allegedly called Trump’s whore while shopping for bridesmaid’s dresses in February.


Manigault and Newman reportedly met while she was teaching at Howard University. Newman proposed to Manigault in front of a crowd of churchgoers during a service at the Sanctuary at Mount Calvary church in Jacksonville, where he is pastor. (She is also a pastor.)

President Donald Trump and his family did not attend the wedding, but her West Wing colleagues threw her a wedding shower earlier in the week.
