Who was the famous female African American author interviewed by Oprah who found out her husband is gay?
Terry McMillan Author divorces husband who inspired ‘How Stella Got Her Groove Back’ SAN FRANCISCO A real life, sudden plot twist for “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” author Terry McMillan. She’s filed for divorce from the man who inspired the novel after learning that he’s gay. McMillan — who is 53 — says she’s come to the revelation that her 30-year old husband only married her six years ago to get U-S citizenship. They met at a Jamaican resort. McMillan filed for divorce in January, but news of the split didn’t surface until this week, when it was first reported in a San Francisco Chronicle gossip column. Jonathan Plummer says McMillan has treated him with “homophobic” scorn. A judge has ordered McMillan to pay him two-thousand-dollars a month in spousal support and 25-thousand dollars in attorney’s fees until the case comes back to court in October.
