Michael Clarke Duncan

Planned To Wed

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.

SHAME< SHAME > SHAME!!!!! How could you even approach Omarosa when she has had such a shock over the sudden death of her friend and fiance! How could you even make such an insincere condolence all to get her on video sobbing and grieving. Have you NO couth? have you NO RESPECT??????

Harvey Levan, you should know better. You should have stopped your dog and at least waited until days/weeks/months after the funeral. For what?. a video & story???? SHAME< SHAME< SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!!!

Karma is a bi**tch! In my entire life, I have never witnessed a more vicious or prejudicial woman than Omerosa. She did not DESERVE this wonderful man. I hope that she doesn't get a dime of his money.
