White House correspondent April Ryan reported Wednesday that the former "Apprentice" contestant did not resign, but that she was sacked by Chief of Staff John Kelly and exploded into vulgarities upon hearing the news.

A source familiar with Manigault-Newman's departure told the Guardian that her refusal to defend the administration had always been a sticking point. "As the only African-American in this White House..."
