From White House communications director to reality TV? That’s the rumor concerning Anthony Scaramucci, the controversial spokesman who once claimed he would never do reality TV.

Trump fired Scaramucci after just 10 days on the job.

Scaramucci’s is famous in political circles for having a jaw-dropping, obscenity-laced phone call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza.

Earlier this year Scaramucci was very upset that CNN ran a headline Wednesday quoting him calling President Trump a “liar.”

So when he was on Bloomberg TV the next day, he decided to clarify.

“Yes, the president is speaking mistruths,” Scaramucci said after accusing the network of pursuing “clickbait.” “Yes, the president is lying. He’s doing it intentionally to incite certain people, which would include left-leaning journalists and most of the left-leaning politicians.”

Scaramucci added: “He’s an intentional liar; it’s very different from just being a liar liar.”

So he’s a liar then?

Scaramucci follows Omarosa Manigault Newman, another former Trump staffer, who was paid $1 million to appear in the first season of the show.

While not confirmed by CBS, a Twitter user named “Susan Big Brother Insider” claims to know the complete list of celebrities.

NO STORMY

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who was paid hush money by Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump, demanded a $1 million payday to appear on the show according to Susan Big Brother Insider.

Producers declined, believing her ratings would not be as strong as Omarosa’s last year.

SALARIES

Dina Lohan, Lindsay Lohan’s 56-year old mom, recently filed for bankruptcy, and was offered a $100,000 guarantee to appear on the show according to sources.

But not all salaries are reportedly alike:

Last season, Omarosa was paid $1 million to appear, but the rest of the cast was reportedly paid much less to be on the show.

SCHEDULE

Celebrity Big Brother premieres on CBS on January 21.

Like the first season, the show will air multiple nights a week until the show’s two-hour season finale on Wednesday, February 13th.

New episodes of “Celebrity Big Brother” will air every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

FUTURE OF JULIE

Julie Chen Moonves returns as host amid allegations of sexual misconduct by her husband Les Moonves.

Chen Moonves, 48, resigned as co-host of The Talk back in September.

She remains employed at CBS, and will host the celebrity edition, although Big Brother hasn’t been renewed officially by CBS for a 21st season.

There is also growing speculation that Celebrity Big Brother may be her last show at the network.

Meanwhile, final preparations are being made for the premiere.
