Ice-T threatens to shoot Omarosa, she calls him a sell out
By Reality TV World staff, 11/03/2005
And to think former The Apprentice villainess Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth thought she had it bad when The Surreal Life 5 roommate Janice Dickinson started waving a butcher knife at her -- now she has someone that she claims to have never even met threatening to shoot her.
According to the New York Daily News, rapper-turned-actor Ice-T told the paper that he dislikes Omarosa so much that he'd like to shoot her during an appearance at Project Runway host Heidi Klum's Halloween party.
"I'll tell you who I don't like: Omarosa," the Law & Order: SVU star told Daily News gossip columnist Lloyd Grove. "That b- is not supposed to be famous. Being somebody in the business, you have a lot of admiration for people because you know how hard they work. But certain people, you're just like, what the f- has that ho done."
Told that plenty of other folks probably feel the same way about the former reality star, Ice-T (whose real name is Tracy Marrow) took his criticism to another level. "Yeah, well, I'm at the top of the list. Give me the gun," the former Crips gang member and "Cop Killer" song writer replied.
Once informed of his comments, Omarosa wasted no time firing back at Ice-T. "Tracy sold out his rap career to go play a cop on a show because his last album tanked," she told the paper while also noting that she'd never even met her would-be attacker.
"You're supposed to be hard-core, rapping about killing and pimpin' hos, and you go and play a cop? He sold out!" Omarosa charged on. "Real hip-hop artists - the ones that are true to the art form - do not resort to playa hating."
