The Grio is reporting Reality Star  Omarosa was recently ordained as a Reverend after serving in her home church–the Weller Street Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California for about a year.

Now let me say this up front before I give y’all my take on this, I am not questioning her calling at all, but what I am questioning is how the ordination council (if it was one) signed off on her ordination after, come on, one year training in your home church and continuing seminary studies, what happened to graduating from an accredited seminary before becoming ordained as a Reverend.  Now I can understand given her a license  to minister while in seminary, but to ordain her as a Reverend .  Chile please, if that is the case everybody who went through discipleship training should be lining up to be ordained.    I am just keeping it Real!

Reality TV star Omarosa O. Manigault has been recently ordained as “Rev. Manigault” after serving as an assistant pastor at her home church — the Weller Street Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California — for about a year. Manigault was unanimously approved to become a reverend by the ordination committee in a vote held at Weller Street church in mid-February.

The newly-minted reverend said of her ordination: “This is the day that the Lord has made, I truly rejoice and am glad it is! This was one of the most profound days of my life and my ministry. How amazing I feel to serve God[.] I made a very personal decision to dedicate my life to the service of the kingdom of God. I intend to continue my seminary studies and to fully discover what God’s plan is for my life and ministry.”

In 2009, Omarosa announced her enrollment in seminary school. The former Ultimate Mergerdating show star received her preacher’s license in February 2011, which is an alternative to ordination. Now a fully ordained minister, the former Apprentice villainess will continue in her role as assistant pastor, but can now officiate Christian rites such as marriages, funerals, and baptisms.

Manigault also revealed that she “is currently enrolled in the doctorate of Ministry program at Payne Theological Seminary in Ohio,” according to a statement released to the press.

After Manigault earned her preacher’s license in 2011, reported that:

Omarosa recognizes that there will be some skeptics who will never let her live down her bad girl ways. To them she offered: “Like the gospel song says, ‘My Worship is For Real!'”

Manigault most recently made an appearance at a lavish gifting suite held in honor of Valentine’s day. Gifting suites are luxurious parties at which celebrities pick up desirable items for free (although this party had a charity component) as part of the promotional efforts of various brands.
