Although The Apprentice‘s Omarosa Manigault Stallworth and Green Mile actor Michael seem like the world’s strangest couple, he tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively what he sees in a woman known as the queen of mean!

No one was more surprised than we were to see that The Apprentice’s uber-beyotch Omarosa Manigault Stallworth was dating The Green Mile‘s gentle giant Michael Clarke Duncan – but the two confirm to HollywoodLife.com that they are, indeed, a couple. SO WEIRD.

“Oh, most definitely!” the 36-year-old reality villain told us exclusively at In Touch Weekly‘s post-VMAs bash Sept. 12 when we asked if the two were together. Michael, 52, responded, “That’s my girl right there. That’s my girl.”

So how could this crazy strange pairing occur? What could he possibly see in someone so, well, MEAN? “[I like] her personality,” he confided to us. “Really! She’s very knowledgeable. She’s the first woman that I can wake up next to and knows all about politics and what’s going on in the world. The world, defense, what’s going on with the President’s program. Anything and everything. She’s very intelligent.”

How long has this odd relationship been going on? “We’ve been around [each other since] about January, but we JUST started seeing each other because she was doing her show,” Michael reveals. “We tried not to get in each other’s way. I mean, I tried not to get in HER way, but my feelings got the best of me. I took her to a Lakers game and that was it. I shouldn’t have done that, but I couldn’t help myself.”
