The blurred line between Trump administration official and reality TV star continues.

The 11-day White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will be part of the cast of CBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother” when it makes its season premiere on Jan. 21, CBS reported.

Other stars on the show this season include suspended Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, NFL player Ricky Williams and Lindsey Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan.

Scaramucci isn’t the first ousted Trump official who’s made the jump from the West Wing to “Celebrity Big Brother.” After being forced out of the White House last year, Omarosa Manigault-Newman starred in the reality show.
