Books: Omarosa’s “Unhinged” is Number 1 on NY Times Non Fiction Bestsellers, Just 27 on


Omarosa. I keep hearing her name in my head as it’s “rolla-coasta” from the Ohio Players’ “Love Rollercoaster.” I don’t know why. She definitely needs her own little theme music.

Anyway, her book “Unhinged” will be number 1 on Sunday’s New York Times non fiction best sellers. It’s also number 1 on the non fiction print and E book best seller list.

Over at, it’s number 27 of all books including paperbacks, hardcovers, and how to manuals.

Ms. Manigault-Newman has exacted her revenge on Donald Trump. For that, we are all grateful, whether or not it’s true. To paraphrase Rudy Giuliani, “there is no truth.”

Certainly, the Manafort and Cohen legal debacles will fuel her sales even more.

On the best seller list, by the way, she’s ahead to two people way crazier– Gregg Jarrett and Jeanine Pirro from Fox News. Compared to them, Omarosa is Colin Powell.
