Jonathan Plummer is now living a happy life, more than a decade after he shocked his wife Terry McMillan by admitting he was gay.


Terry McMillian’s controversial ex-husband Jonathan Plummer is in a better place right now. Just take a look at this post with his new husband and you’ll see why. 

The 46-year-old was smiling in his collage of selfies as he matched his husband who was also in black and making funny faces to the camera.  Looking at them, it seemed eons ago when Plummer shocked the world and his ex-wife, author McMillan, 66, with his admission he was gay.


Back in 2005, the “Waiting to Exhale’ author terminated her 6 1/2-year-marriage to Plummer after she discovered he was gay. During her confrontation with him in an episode of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’, she revealed she always thought her husband was “not the most masculine man” but she never expected anything because “he wasn’t effeminate.” She later told Plummer who joined her on the show,

“You didn’t say anything about being gay. You said everything but that.”

On his part, Plummer admitted he only realized he was gay four years into their marriage. 


Flash forward to 2014, and McMillian was singing a different song. Gone was the bitter wife who sued her husband in 2007 for $40 million claiming he tainted her reputation. Instead, a forgiving woman sat before Oprah on the talk show host’s ‘Where Are They Now’ series admitting she would marry Plummer again after what she now knows. She explains, 

“….They were some of the best years of my life...He made me feel like a princess...He could give a lot of lessons to straight men on how to treat a woman 'cause he was very good. I felt beautiful, I felt loved."


McMillan’s 1998 best-selling book ‘How Stella Got Her Groove’ back was actually inspired by her love affair with Plummer.  The book which was adapted on the big screen centered around the character Stella who fell in love with a man 20 years her junior. 

Today, it appears the author has her groove back and so does Plummer. The road to forgiveness was long but it was worth it.
