Omarosa Opens Up About Michael Clarke Duncan’s Death
Reality TV star Omarosa met Oscar-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan in a Los Angeles Whole Foods when he recognized her as the controversial contender on “The Apprentice.” Omarosa gave Duncan her phone number and the two began dating. After getting engaged three years later, the couple planned to have a January 2013 wedding — but everything changed when Duncan passed away unexpectedly in September 2012.
In “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”, Omarosa — who currently appears on TV’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” — remembers the chilling details of the night that changed her life. “[Michael] went to bed a little earlier than me. At some point later that evening, I could hear him laboring, trying to breathe,” Omarosa said. “And then I didn’t hear anything.”
When she realized Duncan wasn’t breathing, Omarosa jumped into action. “I started doing CPR and trying to get 911 on the [phone],” she recalls.
The paramedics were able to get Duncan’s heart started again and rushed him to the hospital. “He fought,” Omarosa says. “[But] after two months of fighting, he passed away.”
