Omarosa Manigault is still healing from the loss of her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan, and she’s playing for a cause close to his heart on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” this season.
It has only been five months since the untimely passing of Duncan, but Omarosa says that she is still holding on, “What I’ve learned is that if I trust God, He will carry me through the difficult times and challenges,” she told Essence. “And I’ve learned that I am equipped to deal with everything that life throws at me.”
The “new and improved” Omarosa has decided to participate once again in the show that made her a star. Her time on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” will be dedicated to attempting to win the $250,000 prize for the Sue Duncan Children’s Center.
“I think the center’s mission is vital. My fiancé, the late Michael Clarke Duncan, is an alumni, but he’s not related to Sue Duncan,” said Omarosa. “The 200-plus children that they’re serving at the center literally need every dollar I raise. Michael and I have made sure to make contributions to the center over the years so I wanted to keep that going.”
Omarosa also told Essence that she feels like Michael is still here with her. “I live with the presence of Michael Clarke Duncan every day because everything is as he left it,” she explained. “It’s unbelievable at times. I miss him every single day. It doesn’t get better, but you get better. So I’m working on getting better.”
