AceShowbiz - CBS' "Celebrity Big Brother (US)" is only in its second week. However, one of the contestants, Omarosa, has rubbed the other cast members the wrong way. A new report suggests that the other houseguests are upset over salary disparity between them and the former White House staffer.
"Omarosa is earning more than the other houseguests," says a source to Naughty Gossip. "She is getting $250,000 base salary and a bonus of $200,000 if she wins."
In contrast to Omarosa's salary, the source claims that the other cast members are only getting paid between "$150,000 to just $50,000."
"When Omarosa's paycheck was revealed, the other cast members went crazy," adds the source. "But it was too late--their deals were all signed."
Omarosa has been making some headlines over the time she's competing in the first season of the "Big Brother" spin-off. In Wednesday, February 14 episode of "Celebrity Big Brother", the former "The Celebrity Apprentice" contestant talked about Melania Trump.
While she criticized Donald Trump in the premiere episode, Omarosa praised the First Lady of the U.S. "I don't know why people don't think she's sharp," Omarosa shared. "She speaks so many languages ... she's sharp."
Omarosa, who was let go from the White House on January 20, previously revealed that she accepted the job as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison because "I felt like it was a call of duty," adding, "I felt like I was serving my country, not him [Donald Trump]."
She went on saying, "I was haunted by tweets every single day. Like, 'What is he going to tweet next?' " When asked about who has the power to say "What's going on?" Omarosa replied, "I don't know. I'm not there. It's not my circus, not my monkeys. I'd like to say not my problem, but I can't say that because it's bad. It's not going to be OK, it's not." While tearing up even more, she added, "It's so bad."
