Omarosa Manigault during Michael Clarke Duncan's funeral
Michael Clarke Duncan was laid to rest. Many of his friends attended the memorial service at Forest Lawn in Los Angeles on Monday, September 10.
His fiancee Omarosa Manigault gave a tearful speech. She remembered the pick-up line he’d used when meeting her at a grocery store. ” ‘Aren’t you that mean girl from The Apprentice?’ “And then he worked every single day of our relationship to change that perception of me. The man you knew as an actor was my best friend”, Omarosa recalled.
The actor and his fiancee had planned to marry in Gambia, West Africa, in December. Unfortunately, the actor died on September 3 after two months of treatment for a heart attack. He was 54.
