'Piers Morgan blasted former "Apprentice" contestant and onetime White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman as a "poisonous little viper," ripping her for badmouthing Vice President Mike Pence's devout Catholicism.
On CBS' "Celebrity Big Brother," Omarosa criticized Pence, saying that America should not want to impeach President Donald Trump because Pence is a religious extremist.
"I'm Christian, I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things, and I'm like Jesus didn't say that," Omarosa said.
On ABC's "The View," comedian Joy Behar said Pence has a "mental illness" because he hears Christ's voice in his head.
"She's behaving exactly as I predicted," Morgan said of Omarosa. "She's a reality television star whose only raison d'etre is to be a poisonous little viper spreading gossip, innuendo and terrorizing everyone in her wake."
Morgan also questioned why Trump hired her in the first place.
He added that Omarosa is only "famous for being horrible" and "one of the worst human beings I've ever encountered in my life."
Morgan and Omarosa starred together on a season of "Celebrity Apprentice," hosted by Trump.'

Mike Pence 'thinks Jesus tells him to say things', says former Trump aide Omarosa
'Vice president Mike Pence is “scary” and “thinks Jesus tells him to say things”, according to a former Trump administration official.
Omorosa Manigault Newman, who left the White House in December, cautioned critics of Donald Trump against impeachment, because it would mean the “extreme” Mr Pence would inherit the presidency.
"Can I just say this? As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Ms Manigault Newman, who is starring in the US version of Big Brother, told housemates on Monday evening.
“Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives. You would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president. He’s extreme.
“I’m Christian, I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things, and I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ Scary.”
Ms Manigault Newman, the former White House director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, also warned about the “crackdowns” being imposed on immigrants under the Trump administration.'
