SHE'S ON FIRED! Manigault-Stallworth was not a team player in Washington

''The Apprentice'''s Omarosa loudly touted her White House resume on the show, but People magazine reports that, during her two years in D.C., she went through jobs faster than you can say, ''Manigault-Stallworth.'' According to People, the reality star who won't go away was sent packing four times, making ''You're fired'' a familiar refrain to her well before she heard Donald Trump say it.

Manigault-Stallworth's work for then-Vice President Al Gore consisted of answering his invitations. ''She came to self-promote, and at that she was excellent,'' a former Gore staffer told People, adding: ''She didn't do her job, and it got everybody in trouble.'' She was transferred to the White House personnel office, which in turn sent her to the Department of Commerce. She lost that job but landed another Commerce post. The department's former Undersecretary for Technology, Cheryl Shavers, told People: ''She was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive. One woman wanted to slug her.'' Sound familiar?

Talking to the Washington Post, Manigault-Stallworth blamed her final ouster in 2000 on a colleague who, she said, had it in for her. She gave People two different explanations for her departure, saying at first ''I left when I got married,'' but later telling the magazine she left ''to go out on the campaign for Al Gore.'' She tells the magazine she's fielding plenty of new job offers.
