Oprah Author Terry McMillan: How Stella’s “Groove” was Immigration Fraud–a Sham Marriage

By Debbie Schlussel
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.

La Deb,
You must have missed the Tom Cruise episode recently on Oprah.
It has taken 10 years for the hip, with it McMillan to figure out he was playing for the other team?
Sounds like the butch partner is going to “hit her up style”…you go,girl!
Get Springer on the phone.

In the WP article, it says that TM sent her former groove provider an email stating, “The reason you’re going to make a great fag is that most of you guys are just like dogs anyway. . . . You do whatever with whomever pleases you and don’t seem to care about the consequences.”
So her marriage is not only a fraud, but she’s anti-gay, too. And ultra pro-gay rights Oprah made her career. This woman’s a complete phony & I love it.

She’s also guilty of orientation fraud by being so willing to be this guy’s “beard”. If Oprah won’t have her on again, maybe a Dr. Phil appearance is in order? After all, didn’t Oprah make both McMillan’s and Dr. Phil’s careers?
