CBB host Julie Chen sounded off on Manigault joining the cast of the show.

“It’s a good thing the word ‘brother’ is between ‘big’ and ‘house’ so it’s not from the White House to the Big House,” Chen said on Page Six TV Monday. “We know Omarosa likes a microphone. She likes a camera. She has something to say.”
