UPDATE (12/15/17 at 8:53 a.m. ET):

It's war!

Omarosa is clapping back at Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, who tersely said "bye, Felicia!" on-air in response to Omarosa saying she "has quite a story to tell" about her departure from the White House.

And it's an all-out war.

"That was petty," the former reality star told Inside Edition. “It’s a black woman civil war."

UPDATE (12/14/17 at 9:23 a.m. ET):

Not everyone is buying what Omarosa is selling.

A day after the White House announced the former Apprentice star will be stepping down from her role as aid to President Donald Trump, she's opening up about her decision to leave.

But at least one famous face, Robin Roberts, is not exactly believing her story.

Omarosa, who was rumored to actually be fired from the position, did an interview with Good Morning America's Michael Strahan, in which she revealed she has "quite a story to tell."

 

"As the only African American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the President, I have seen things that made me feel uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally," she told him. 

"That has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”

But GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts wasn't so convinced.

“That’s what said: She has a story to tell,” the 57-year-old said on-air.

“I’m sure she’ll be selling that story. Bye, Felicia."

Original story (12/13/17 at 1:13 p.m. ET):

Omarosa Manigault Newman is out.

The former Apprentice star, who has served as one of President Donald Trump's aids in the White House since he took office, has officially resigned from her position.

But Omarosa may not be telling the whole story — was she actually fired instead?!

"Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement today, December 13.

"Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service."

Fair enough, right? But April Ryan, longtime journalist and White House correspondent, implies there's more to the story.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, the Baltimore native reveals Omarosa didn't leave her position on her own merit, but was rather fired... and even escorted out of the building!

She claims General Kelly did the honors, and the former TV villain "acted very vulgar and cursed a lot" when she was given the news, hence why she was escorted out.

April's version of events hasn't been confirmed, but she told followers to "stay tuned" to find out what happens next. Color us intrigued!

However, it's important to note that Omarosa and April have quite a histroy.

Though the two powerful women were friends at one point, their friendship turned sour once Omarosa started endorsing Trump in his presidential run, according to The Washington Examiner.

She reportedly wanted to distance herself from the reporter, and April claims the 43-year-old in turn "wanted to kill my career."

With that said, take Omarosa's alleged firing with a grain of salt until we get more information.

Can't wait to see what Mr. President has to say about this...
