(RNN) – First it was Michael Cohen. Now it's…Omarosa?

Maybe.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the "Apprentice" contestant-turned-White House staffer, reportedly made secret audio recordings of her conversations with President Donald Trump.

She then used those recordings to shop her upcoming tell-all book about the president, multiple unnamed sources told The Daily Beast.

Sources characterized the recorded conversations as normal, everyday chitchat.

If the "Omarosa tapes" exist, Manigault-Newman will be the second former confidant to betray Trump by means of clandestine audio.

Cohen, Trump's former attorney and so-called "fixer," made secret recordings of his ex-boss – recordings the FBI seized when they raided his home, office and hotel room earlier this year.

Cohen released one recording to CNN last month. It contains audio of Cohen and Trump discussing plans to purchase a Playboy model's story about her alleged affair with Trump.

Manigault-Newman was ousted from the Trump administration in December 2017. Her book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," is set for release on Aug. 14.
