LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Omarosa is still coping with the death of her fiance Michael Clarke Duncan.
The “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” star stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, where she opened up about losing Michael, who died in September after complications following a heart attack.
“I miss him every single day. I really, really do,” she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, holding back her tears.
“The laughter, he was always joking and smiling and playing,” she told Kit when asked what she misses most.
Omarosa has kept the home she shared with the actor the same way it was before his death.
“I’m still in our home, I haven’t moved anything. The bedroom is exactly the way it was the night he had the heart attack. I haven’t moved anything,” she explained. “I haven’t been able to do it.”
The reality star has had trouble returning to one room in the house.
“I think through my grieving process I’ll get to a point where I’ll be able to go into our master [bedroom] and not feel that same anxiety of that night,” she said of the night the “Green Mile” star suffered a heart attack.
Appearing on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC (Sundays at 10 PM) has helped Omarosa honor her late fiance by earning money for the actor’s charity, the Michael Clarke Duncan “You Can Do Anything” Organization.
“I had fun [on the show] and I’ve raised $40,000 for Michael’s charity,” she told Billy and Kit.
