(CBS News) -

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman left the set of "Celebrity Big Brother" Friday night for medical attention, CBS News has confirmed. It is unclear if or when Newman will be returning to the house to resume filming. 

It is unclear if or when Newman will be returning to the house to resume filming. The nature of her condition is still unclear. 

Concern over her health first emerged after a hushed conversation between contestants Marissa Jaret Winokur and Ross Matthews after a dizzying house game. Winokur said, "Omarosa had everything to lose. ... I mean, I put her in the hospital. She's gonna be OK." 

Newman joined the show, which premiered earlier this week, after leaving the White House in December. In her short time on the show so far, she made headlines by saying she wouldn't vote for President Trump, "in a million years, never," and recalling — through tears — that she was "haunted by tweets" from the president during her White House tenure.

On the show, Newman expressed concern for the future of the country, when a fellow contestant asked if everything with the country was going to be OK.

"No, it's gonna not be OK," she said. "It's not." 

The White House has insisted up until this point that the former "Apprentice" show and former White House aide resigned, but earlier this week White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah suggested that might not be the case. Shah also said the White House doesn't take her comments very seriously. 

"Omarosa was fired three times on the "Apprentice" and this was the fourth time we let her go," Shah said. "She had limited contact with the president while here. She has no contact now."
