Remember Oprah fave author Terry McMillan? She’s the one who married a much younger Caribbean man–23 years younger. The novel and movie screenplay she wrote, “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” extolled that relationship with her young boyfriend-come-husband.
Well, it turns out her relationship was a fake. In fact, the man is gay, and “Stella” married him so he could get a green card, on his way to becoming a U.S. citizen. No wonder this man in his twenties was so “attracted” to this female authoress, much his senior. All of this is coming out in McMillan’s divorce, in which she’s claiming her “paramour” (“para”-something, anyway) was gay all along. Well, then, why did she marry him and bring him here? If she knew he was gay all along, she committed marriage fraud and should be prosecuted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). And he should be deported. (Don’t hold your breath for either–for a variety of PC reasons, she’s untouchable.) I have a suggestion for a sequel: “How Stella Got Prosecuted for Immigration Fraud.” Don’t look for her good friend, Oprah, to do a follow-up on her past show lauding McMillan and her phony old matron-young dude marriage.
