DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Those who know Omarosa Manigault Stallworth at the United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, are showing their support for the former reality TV star.

"The Apprentice," "Celebrity Apprentice" and "The Surreal Life" antagonist began working toward a doctorate of ministry at the seminary this week.

The Dayton Daily News said UTS President Wendy J. Deichmann gifted Stallworth with a mustard seed Monday to remind her of the Bible parable in which Jesus told followers faith, even the size of a tiny mustard seed, means "nothing will be impossible to you."

"Very few people have faith in my transformation, so this is a wonderful gift," the newspaper quoted Stallworth as saying, referring to celebrity gossips who have poked fun of her calling.

"Don't let that hold you back," Deichmann told her.

Classmate F. Willis Johnson Jr. said he is supportive of Stallworth's intention to live a life of ministry.

"People need to know that she is as sincere and as authentic as anyone I've known who's taken this journey," the Daily News reported Johnson said.
