An­thony Scara­mucci makes the leap from Trump aide to “Celebrity Big Brother.”

The Washington Post - - STYLE -

“Celebrity Big Brother” has once again dipped into

Pres­i­dent Trump’s for­mer em­ployee rolls for on-air tal­ent: CBS an­nounced Sun­day that An­thony

Scara­mucci, the man who lasted less than two weeks as the White House com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, is join­ing the B-list cast of the “Real World” meets “Sur­vivor” com­pe­ti­tion se­ries.

Scara­mucci fol­lows in the stilet­toed foot­steps of for­mer Trump staffer Omarosa Mani­gault New­man, whose sala­cious ten­ure on “Big Brother” was marked by head­line-grab­bing con­fes­sion­als about the ut­ter chaos be­hind the scenes at 1600 Penn. While there’s no doubt that “the Mooch” will be drop­ping gems of his own, as a Trump loy­al­ist, we doubt Scara­mucci’s rev­e­la­tions will be half as jaw-drop­ping as Omarosa’s tea.

Scara­mucci, who re­turned to his in­vest­ment firm after leav­ing Wash­ing­ton, has re­cently been spot­ted in Hol­ly­wood, as he at­tended the Golden Globes cer­e­mony this month. His rep told the Re­li­able Source at the time that Scara­mucci was there just to have fun, but per­haps he was get­ting used to be­ing in the spot­light again.

Join­ing the Mooch in the Big Brother house will be mo­mager Dina Lo­han; co­me­dian Tom Green; for­mer WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie; ac­tor Joey Lawrence; ac­tor Jonathan Ben­nett; Olympians Lolo Jones and Ryan Lochte; for­mer NFL player Ricky Wil­liams; re­al­ity star Kandi Bur­russ; singer Ta­mar Brax­ton; and the coun­try’s most in­fa­mous house guest, Kato Kaelin.

The sec­ond U.S. edi­tion of the al­most-fa­mous train wreck, which will again be hosted by Julie Chen, pre­mieres on Jan. 21.
