Despite the world not knowing much about Michael Clarke Duncan and Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth’s relationship, it sure sounds like the two had one heck of a love going on. It was revealed after Michael’s death that the pair were planning to wed next year, and now, friends say that Michael was holding on for his love.
Close friend of the couple, and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant, Holly Robinson Peete recently told People Magazine: “He fought, he fought really, really hard,” of Michael Clarke Duncan after his heart attack in July, adding: “I saw him open his eyes … There were moments of hope. There was a lot of hope and Omarosa.”
Holly also dished on the softer side of Omarosa, and the love affair that she shared with Michael Clarke Duncan: “They loved each other so much … They just had something really magical.” As for how Omarosa is doing, Peete says she is doing as well as she can under the circumstances, and is currently planning a celebration of Michael’s life.
According to People Magazine, A public viewing of his casket is set for Sunday at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Memorial Parks and Mortuaries in Glendale, CA. There will also be a private viewing set for Monday.
