Manigault and Newman, a pastor in Jacksonville, Fla., met at Howard University, where the former “Apprentice” star teaches an executive business course. Newman, who according to his Sanctuary @Mt. Calvary bio campaigned for President Obama in 2008 and Jesse Jackson in 1988, proposed in front of his congregation after Sunday’s service.
Manigault was previously engaged to “The Green Mile” actor Michael Clark Duncan, who died in 2012 after suffering a heart attack. Since then, Manigault, who describes herself as Trump’s Valerie Jarrett, has been linked to WWE pro Titus O’Neil and D.C. businessman Thomas Graham.
