Wow.... from the comments it's apparent that a lot of you are very bitter and unhappy. Lighten up will ya?! Montel is just looking for happiness like all of us are. As for his fiance... yes, she younger than him, but not as young as everyone seems to think. ( Take a good look at the picture) It's obvious she's a beautiful woman in her early to mid thirties.

True she is in her thirties, I heard Montel on the radio when he was in Memphis,TN and he stated that he needs to stay in shape for his young girlfriend.

Congrat's I guess? I remember when I was in 7th grade Montel Williams came to my middle school and did a speech called "Mountain! Get out of my way! " In retrospect.. it was funny the way he was yelling "Moun-tain!"

Good for him!! Dealing with MS and all its pain has been a real hardship for this man. At least now he has something wonderful to look forward to. Wishing the new couple a wonderful life together.

Does this man ever encounter women who look like him to date? I'm not opposed to dating any race, however I find it suspect when someone NEVER dates a person who shares their own race!
