Omarosa’s outspoken persona is what continuously extends her 15-minute of fame. And wardrobe stylist, Goo Goo, may be sister to Gospel Duo Mary Mary but has no problem letting her persona shine its own light. theJasmineBRAND.com correspondent @SmithWorldWide caught up with the two on the Celebration of Gospel’s red carpet where the two dished on their thoughts of christians doing reality TV. The former Apprentice, who lives without “the spirit of fear” and the “tell the truth” middle sister of 5 were very candid about their differing views. Press play to watch their interview.
The Jasmine Brand: Have you been watching the Preachers of LA? What is your portrayal of the church world on television?
Omarosa: If anytime you can get people talking about the church, reflecting about religion, reflecting about their relationships with God, what’s appropriate and what we’re not appropriate than we’re winning. I’m an assistant pastor at Weller Street Missionary Baptist church and ordain baptist minister and I tell you as much as you try to get people to come into the kingdom it’s very difficult. So this is a vehicle to introducing, reintroducing people and encouraging people to be apart of the kingdom.
Goo Goo: You know I tell the truth right? I think they be wilding out on the show and people are entitled to do what they want to do and you never how they’re going to edit the show but some of the stuff I wish they kind of would conceal. Because it’s kind of one of those things that its like, that’s family business. We all know that we have ups and downs like that fight I almost got into last week, I wouldn’t put that on TV.
Omarosa: But you know what? When you’re in that moment—because I’ve had a lot of those fights on TV—it’s so important to be authentic and to allow whatever’s going to transpire to transpire, I wish there were times I would have held back, but sometimes people really tick me off.
Goo Goo: That’s true sometimes people really tick me off but I’m not a pastor. I’m glad we’re able to see the work that they do, how much they give to the ministry, sometimes their wives and families are 2nd and 3rd to the ministry. Sometimes it has their perks and somethings it’s like ooh it’s not that.
the Jasmine Brand: If you could ask God anything and he had to answer, what would you ask him?
Omarosa: God let your will be down, whatever you may have for me, may your will be done.
the Jasmine Brand: What is one of your greatest fears?
Omarosa: God didn’t give us the spirit of fear.
Goo Goo: Honestly I’m not a fearful person and when I feel fear trying to creep up on me, I don’t like that feeling of control. So I force myself to get passed it. Like this season of Mary Mary we went zip lining, and I was horrified but I said, ‘you not gonna be no punk though’ so I went zip lining. I take that approach into everything—it’s just like you have to do what you have to do, fear can’t punk me.
