Michael Clarke Duncan

Planned To Wed

Omarosa in January

9/4/2012 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903_MICHAEL-CLARKE-DUNCAN_omorosa_tmz_gettyMichael Clarke Duncan and Omarosa Manigault were secretly engaged and the wedding was set for this January, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us, Michael and Omarosa kept the engagement a secret from the media ... only telling very close friends and family about the pending nuptials.

We're told the couple had just started planning for the wedding when Michael went into full cardiac arrest​ July 13 and was hospitalized until his death.

We're told Omarosa is just destroyed after waging a valiant fight to save Michael.  She had doctors flown in from all over the world but constantly worried if she was doing enough.

Michael died while still in the hospital Monday morning. He was 54.

Omarosa, who had just left town for an engagement before Michael's death, returned to L.A. last night ... and was sobbing uncontrollably at LAX.

They really did seem to be a very happy couple and by their recent public appearances, I think it's been obvious that these two were going to walk down the aisle. If it wasn't for her actions when he had the heart attack he may have left sooner. She should be proud that she was given several more weeks with him because of her actions. In time her heart will mend but she will never lose the memories they shared.

Is or is there not a life after. Even Jesus who rose from the dead could not tell. If there is a life after he would have told . So I guess there is nothing but us being fertilyser. Fix what you can with people you love because they can not hear you after you are in your grave. They only regrett not having to made up with you. Save them from these horrid guild feelings.

When is the United States going to do something about paparazzi? They need to be banned, especially at airports - that ******* giving fakeass condolences to her while snapping her picture. How inhumane can you be? Just like those psychopaths who work in the TMZ newsroom. Just devoid of everything that makes one human. It's amazing how they function in life.

So sorry to see this about Big Mike. Really liked him as an actor. But I can see where the thought of spending life with the likes of Omorosa would send one into cardiac arrest.... and with her, what goes around, comes around.

I like TMZ, but Im not feeling the fact that they cornered Omerosa at the airport and shoved the camera in her face and the flashes etc, not when they have just suffered a loss. Bad form tmz.

I deepest sympathy to Michael Clarke Duncan's family and friends. Omarosa, you are a wonderful woman and thank goodness you where there when Michael got sick. You saved his life.

Cedars-Sinai is the best hospital, my boyfriend is there awaiting a transplant.
