LIFE AFTER BERNIE

She married Horace Gilmore in 2011, after being introduced to her by her younger sister. In an instant, they had a connection which McCullough claims is "God-sent." Now, he is her companion as she continues to go through life and is appreciative of their relationship. 

Despite this, she still heads the Bernie Mac Foundation, supporting its endeavors as its CEO and president. The foundation focuses on combating Sarcoidosis, a disease that causes inflammation of organs, common in African-American women, and those of Scandinavian descent.

A BIG ADJUSTMENT

In 2016, Rhonda opened up about how life has been without Bernie, and it was an emotional discussion for her as she tried to hold back her tears. After all, she grew up with him and he was all she ever knew. 

"My whole life was him, since I was 16, and I just didn't know what I was going to do. I was like, 'What is my reason for being here now? What is my purpose? How am I going to make it now?'"

REMEMBERING BERNIE MAC

During her husband's final moments, McCullough shared that she was asking her husband not to die, reminding him that she was still there waiting for him. However, he ultimately succumbed to his illness and at the time, she was unclear of what to do.
