Lemon tried to bring up the topic of former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who recently debuted on “Celebrity Big Brother,” but Sanders wasn’t having any part of that discussion.

“Don, it’s Black History Month. We gotta talk about Omarosa?” Sanders asked.

That did it. Lemon broke out into a laughing fit, as Sanders rolled her eyes and continued. 

“It’s Black History Month, OK? Carter G. Woodson did not go to the mat to get Negro History Week that eventually turned into Black History Month for us to talk about Omarosa and her apology tour and her attempt to salvage her reputation on a reality television show,” Sanders said. “Not during Black History Month, Don.”

Omarosa says she wouldn’t vote for Trump again ‘in a million years’

Former Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman continues to comment on the Donald Trump presidency while in the “Celebrity Big Brother” house.

She previously made headlines for saying the country wasn’t going to be OK after talking about her time in the White House with contestant Ross Matthews. 

CBS News reported that Manigault Newman said she would never vote for Trump again in the Thursday episode of the reality TV show.

Speaking with fellow celebrity contestant Keshia Knight Pulliam, Manigault Newman compared her relationship with Trump to Pulliam’s relationship with Bill Cosby. Pulliam starred as the youngest Huxtable on “The Cosby Show” from ages 5-13.

Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by more than 50 women. The accusations span decades.

Pulliam asked Manigault Newman about what she said was hate spurred by the campaign.

“When you’re in the middle of a hurricane, it’s hard to see the destruction on the outer bands,” Manigault Newman said.

“Since you’re asking me, you stood strong by somebody who you have known and have been loyal to and have known for a long time and who has supported you, and people judged you for that,” Manigault Newman told Pulliam, according to Us Weekly. “But only you know the inner workings of your relationship with Mr. Cosby. That’s the same thing with me and Mr. Trump.”

Pulliam pushed back on Manigault Newman’s remarks. 

“It’s comparing apples to oranges,” she said. “It’s a different situation because this man (Trump) is running the country and being the voice of a whole country of people.”

The reality star turned White House official turned reality star said on the show that she would not vote for Trump again “in a million years, never.”

“If we become friends, you’ll see how loyal I am, like maybe to a fault,” Newman told Pulliam.

“It’s just been so incredibly hard to shoulder what I shouldered for those two years because I was so loyal to a person,” she said. “And I didn't realize that by being loyal to him, it was going mean I was going to lose 100 other friends.”

Later in the show, when speaking to Matthews, Manigault Newman said that working in the White House was “100 percent” worse than being on reality TV.

“I made choices, I just have to live with them,” she said.

Justin Timberlake surprises Super Bowl selfie kid with tour tickets

Days after Super Bowl LI, 13-year-old Ryan McKenna is still coming down from getting a selfie with halftime performer Justin Timberlake.

The photo -- and footage of Ryan trying to get his phone to snap the image -- has made the seventh-grader a viral sensation.

Ryan has been making the rounds speaking to media about the viral moment, but got a special surprise when he was on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Friday.

The New England Patriots fan from Hingham, Massachusetts said he didn’t know the musician would be walking through the crowd until it happened.

Ryan wasn’t in the prime spot at first.

“I pushed through—I was elbowing people,” said. “But I got there and I was there with him.”

Memes emerged of Ryan struggling with his phone, but he explained that he was trying to switch to video.

“Yes, I saw all the memes. I’ve seen those,” Ryan said. “My dad told me he was coming up so I had to push out there, but I had the video (on) when I was going out to Justin, and then I had the iPhone 6 and that thing is slow. So it just shut off, and that’s why all the memes formed.”

DeGeneres surprised Ryan with a phone call from Timberlake, who then surprised him with tickets to his show in Boston. DeGeneres then told him that the NFL gifted Ryan and his family with tickets to a Patriots home game next season and four pre-game tickets.

“Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together,” Timberlake said.

Royal wedding: Will guest list include Laura Lopes, Fergie?

The countdown to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is on and as the couple prepare for their “I do’s,” royals fans are questioning who might be on the guest list.

>> Read more trending news

Some may be surprised to hear that the royal family is much bigger than just Queen Elizabeth II’s direct line, which includes her four children, eight grandchildren and soon-to-be seven great-grandchildren. There are even more cousins and distant relatives who maintain royal status and will likely get a seat at Markle and Harry’s nuptials, but what about Harry’s stepsister, Laura Lopes?

Lopes is the forgotten daughter of Prince Harry and Prince William’s stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her ex-husband Andrew Bowles Parker.

But it seems that she prefers life outside of the royal spotlight. According to The Mirror, Lopes wed husband Harry Lopes in front of at least 400 guests in 2006, and William and Duchess Catherine were among the distinguished guests. Her daughter Eliza, now 10, later served as a flower girl at William and Catherine’s 2011 wedding. Apart from those occasions, Lopes hasn’t been in the public eye.

It sounds like Lopes might merit an invitation to Harry and Markle’s wedding in May without question but Harry did invite one guest that may be rocking the royal family.

The Daily Mail reports that Harry made waves in the family when he insisted on inviting estranged aunt Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York to his upcoming wedding.

“Harry has nailed his colors to the mast on this,” a royal aide said, according to the publication. “He wants his aunt there — and she will be.”

He reportedly made the decision as to avoid causing Ferguson anymore grief.

“Invitations for Harry and Meghan’s wedding are expected to go out the first week of March. Despite reports to the contrary, Sarah Ferguson will be receiving one and attending,” a source told Us Weekly. “Harry has always intended to invite Sarah to the wedding. He is very close to Eugenie and Beatrice, and their mother is just as much family as their father. Harry and Meghan have total control over who goes to the wedding and there was never an issue at the Palace about Sarah being invited. No pushback from anyone.”

If the rumor is true, Ferguson will have two royal weddings to look forward to this year, as her daughter, Princess Eugenie announced she will marry fiance Jack Brooksbank in October.

“Photoshoot today and there’s no hiding this baby bump anymore,” she captioned an Instagram selfie in which her pregnant belly is just slightly out of frame.

Gaines, 39, also encouraged fans to check out her Instagram stories to get some behind-the-scenes sneak peaks of the shoot.

Last September, the couple announced that they will be ending “Fixer Upper” for good in a post on their official blog.

“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season five of ‘Fixer Upper’ will be our last,” they wrote at the time. “While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with. Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place.”

In the following months, the couple denied security issues and pregnancy rumors as the reason for the end of the series but in January, Chip Gaines announced his wife is expecting the couple’s fifth child.

“Gaines party of 7 … (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines,” he wrote on Jan. 2, alongside the sweet photo of the couple in coordinating grey sweatshirts and matching bumps.

Earlier this month, fans of the duo’s hit HGTV series watched them team up with former football player Tim Tebow to give a dream home to a family in need. Melissa and Jody Copp have two sons, Calan, 9, and Lawson, 5, who are both in wheelchairs, so the family needed a ADA-approved home. The Make-a-Wish foundation and Tebow’s own foundation teamed up to put the family in contact with the Gaineses, who delivered one heck of a dream home.

Chip Gaines took to Instagram on Tuesday and revealed that he and Joanne decided to take things a step further by offering to help pay off the family’s mortgage.

Nicole Eggert reveals alleged abuse by Scott Baio almost drove her to suicide

“Baywatch” alum Nicole Eggert reveals she contemplated suicide at the age of 15 over Scott Baio’s alleged abuse.

>> Read more trending news 

Eggert recently accused her “Charles in Charge” castmate Scott Baio, 57, of sexually abusing her as a minor, and she says she nearly committed suicide as a result.

Eggert, 46, told police that while on the set of the popular sitcom, Baio — then 25 — reportedly abused her over a two year period beginning when she was 14. She said  her struggle to cope with the trauma led her to a bridge over the Los Angeles River.

“For so long I hid it because I thought because I didn’t fight back, and because he wasn’t holding me down, that it made it OK – that I was to blame as well,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

“In those days, I had moments of being so hurt and so upset, and even thoughts of ending my life.”

She recalled staring down at the river as she wept, before ultimately deciding it wasn’t worth it.

“I’m sobbing and I looked at it,” she said, “And I said to myself, ‘It’s not a legit bridge. You’re not going to die. You’re going to break a lot of bones and you’re not even going to kill yourself. Get home.'”

The actress made the allegations against Baio official when she filed a police report on Tuesday.

She initially tweeted the shocking claims, telling the public to “Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor” and calling him a “creep.”

Eggert later appeared on the “Today Show” and shared her story of Baio’s alleged predatory behavior. “He immediately took to me and befriended me and earned my trust. He expressed his love for me and talked about marriage in the future,” she told the host, Megyn Kelly. “And then, before my 15th birthday, we were at his house, in his car, in his garage, and he reached over, and he penetrated me with his finger. And that is when the sexual touching and abuse started.”

A few days later, Baio appeared on “Good Morning America,” and acknowledged the pair did have sex, but that it was consensual. He also says it was after the show stopped shooting, and Eggert was of age. He claims he remained friends with Eggert “after [their] only sexual encounter, which she aggressively sought.” He took to Facebook Live to earnestly deny the accusations.

Actor Brad Pitt involved in three-car accident near his Los Angeles home

The 54-year-old reportedly crashed his grey Tesla into a Nissan, which then slammed into a third vehicle. According to the Daily Mail, the Feb. 5 accident — nearby his Los Angeles home — was minor, and Pitt did not appear to suffer any injuries. He was photographed wearing a casual black sweats and a pageboy cap, while exchanging information and shaking hands with the other smiling drivers. According to an Us Weekly source, Pitt’s home is “just down the street” from the residence of his ex-wife Angelina Jolie and their six kids — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9.

The former super couple filed for divorce in 2016, and Jolie moved their kids into an LA home while Pitt worked on quitting drinking, which reportedly contributed to their breakup. During the very public separation, the “Fight Club” actor was being investigated over claims of alleged child abuse stemming from an incident on a plane involving him, Jolie and the children. He was later cleared of any wrongdoing, and their contentious separation has since become more amicable.

According to Page Six, the pair — once known as “Brangelina” — recently filed an extension in LA courts to allow for more time to resolve their custody issues. While their antagonistic custody battle seems to have cooled off, it’s unlikely that the pair will be reuniting anytime soon. Jolie revealed that their relationship issues had long since been apparent, even before they began filming their final movie as a couple — which had many parallels for their real-life issues.

“We had met working together, and we worked together well. I wanted us to do some serious work together, I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate,” Jolie said about the actors’ 2015 drama “By The Sea,”

“In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things. But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on, and it wasn’t because of the film.”

The experience of working through fictional relationship struggles while dealing with their own ultimately wasn’t enough to save their marriage. Ironically, the pair met on the set of the hit 2005 spy-vs-spy thriller “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

“I’m glad we did that film, because we did explore something together. Whatever it was, maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other,” Jolie said.

It seems Pitt, who has largely remained out of the limelight since the separation, is stepping back into the dating pool, and he reportedly uses his birth name when he does meet people, in coffee shops at least.

He was recently spotted introducing himself to a lady in a coffee shop during a flirtatious exchange as “William” before eventually hoping back on his motorcycle, according to gossip website Page Six.
