Omarosa saves Michael Clark Duncan, her boyfriend, after his heart attack

The Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth saved the life of actor Michael Clarke Duncan yesterday, giving him CPR after he had a heart attack.

TMZ reported that Omarosa “performed CPR and was able to resuscitate the 54-year-old” after discovering him at about 2 a.m. Friday. Later, his representative told Us Weekly that he “suffered a myocardial infarction early this morning” but “is now stable and we look forward to his full recovery.”

Omarosa was ordained earlier this year going to seminary because, she said at the time, God had been calling for two years.

Update, Sept. 3, 2012: Michael Clarke Duncan died on Labor Day; a statement said that he “suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered,” according to the AP, which has other details.
