Michael jumped the broom twice and is currently married to a fellow actor.
Although Michael prefers to keep his private life out of the spotlight, the 51-year-old has had his share of romances over the years. Per Celebhook, Michael first jumped the broom in 2000 with Nichole Beattie, a producer on The Walking Dead. Throughout their marriage, the pair welcomed two sons — Julian and Maceo. However, the marriage did not go the distance and the couple split in 2007.
Michael was able to bounce back and reconnected with actress Kebe Dunn, per Suggest. The outlet reports that Michael and Kebe first dated sometime in the ‘90s, but details are scarce about when they met and why they temporarily separated.
Michael and Kebe decided to tie the knot in 2016. While the couple has not welcomed any children into their union as yet, they are enjoying each other’s company. On Feb. 14, 2020, Michael took to Twitter to share a video of him and Kebe dancing with one another to promote his podcast, I Am Rapaport: Stereo Podcast.
Michael and ‘RHOP’ star Candiace Dillard-Bassett appear to have some beef.
During the week of Nov. 8, 2021, Michael served as the guest host for The Wendy Williams Show. And in a recent episode, Michael included the RHOP Reunion in the show’s “Hot Topics” segment.
Per The Shade Room, Michael announced that RHOP star Wendy Osefo was in the studio to discuss the reunion. He also took a moment to talk about Candiace Dillard Bassett and said, “I was a victim last night also of Candiace’s words. She tweeted about me guest-hosting this Wendy Williams show.”
Candiace responded to a video announcing the news of Michael guest-hosting the show in a rather nasty tweet.
“This melty-faced dingleberry. @MichaelRapaport make sure you practice in the mirror,” the reality star tweeted.
Unfortunately, Michael not only clapped back, he completely eviscerated Candiace on the show.
"Do I look like a melty-faced dingleberry?,” Michael says in a clip captured by The Shade Room. “Look at me. I look fantastic. I’m suited and booted. My first instinct was to punch back, but I’m going to take the high road. Congratulations on your low-budget album “Deep Space’” that just came out. And shoutout to the one person who downloaded it. Candiace right now you have the same career trajectory as the "Cash Me Outside" girl. Good luck with the music career.”
Whew chile! And since Candiace is not a fan-favorite on the show, social media users have sided with Michael in their beef.
“He ate her up as best as he could. She’s somewhere folding that tissue,” one fan commented.
“Yessssss read her a-s, because I’m so over her ughhhh,” another fan commented.
In case you’ve been out of the loop, Candiace’s mouth has gotten her in quite some trouble on RHOP and beyond. From a verbal spat that turned physical with former cast member Monique Samuels to disgusting encounters with newbie Mia Thornton, many fans have had enough of her mouth. And it appears that Michael shares the same sentiment.
And the moral of the story is: Watch how you speak about people. You never know if someone will clap back and embarrass you on national television.
