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.

I'm probably going to get a lot of hates on this but...reality tv isn't real, it's just unscripted and the producers give you a character to play and can be extremely pushy. I have experience in this after being a guest on a reality show. Just because she played a hard ass doesn't mean she was one. Let her mourn, this is a tragedy for her. Please stop with the hate. Do you think this is what MCD would want? Most of you are vile in your thoughts but I will keep you in my prayers in the hope that you come to some kind of personal enlightenment.

Omarosa has her own money. Probably more than him. She wasn't with him for money. They were in love. You can tell. This is heartbreaking.

You people are disgusting. I was looking for more info in MCD and I find this crap. Someone just lost someone they loved and you pound her with flashes and give her insincere condolences while trying to get her photo? VULTURES you are. And anyone who reads TMZ are supporting this vulture activity. GET A LIFE people, instead of watching other people live better than you.

IN JUST A FEW HOURS OF ONE ANOTHER, our country has lost two of our highly talented and beautiful individuals in Michael Duncan and Mark Abrahamian. Deepest sympathy to both families and friends. Sleep Well, Michael. Sleep Well, Mark.

She hadn't even seen him yet. In my opinion, this is going too far. Give the woman some grace and leave her alone during this time.

That's why I hate California drivers; there's always someone just LAYING on the horn like that. Idiots.

Omarosa found her Alpha male, and lost him.. she will be devastated for a long time.

Whoever is saying my condolences is phony as hell, by the way. You don't shove a camera on the grieving widow if you truly respect the death of her soon to be husband.

Same on TMZ in general actually.

A wise woman (my mother) said: Girlfriends and Fiance's DON'T COUNT! They should have had a bedside wedding....so she could have been protected just in case he didn't pull through. It's not unheard of.

RIP Michael. My condolenses to the families.


Now, that being said, I hope this won't turn out to be the Omarosa show with all the grieving and the fake tears, Harvey milking out the hits much like he is right now etc etc.

Cuz if there's one person who would try to push this for personal gain and a reality show, it truly is her.

Wow, hopefully that's the last we will see of Omerosa in the news for a while. Give the woman time to grieve.
