  • It's was just a couple of years ago when Mo'Nique shocked us all by telling Oprah, along with Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels to suck her [BEEP]. And while we still clutch our pearls just thinking about the biting remarks against her Precious producers, Mo still stands firm in her sentiment.

    Mo'Nique is currently promoting her historic residency at the SLS Hotel in Las Vegas. The Academy Award winning actress is the first Black comedienne to have a residency in Sin City and the honor comes not long after her call to boycott Netflix over gender and racial bias. And it was that call to action that snowballed into a rehashing of her frustrations with Winfrey, Lee and Perry.

    She's honest. She demanded to be treated right and fairly and now people wanna say "She's just throwing a tantrum." No, she's not. She's standing up for herself. At least she's real and can't be controlled or backed into a corner.

      If Monique never actually had that conversation with Whoopi, then she’s just assuming what Whoopi meant by “I could have schooled you.” Maybe Whoopi meant she could have schooled her on how to turn the situation around to get money. There are always more than one way to success, but Mo seems to think it’s either her way or no way. Calling Whoopi, an EGOT, “the help” for attempting to pass on some of the knowledge (that lead her to her legendary status) over to Monique (who could have been your cell mate & starred on the Parker’s) is extremely tacky & offensive.

        If Whoopi is "the help" then Monique is helper or slave to the
        " help ". Whoopi was right to call her husband out for the negative influence and destructive force he is to moniques career. Whoopi knew about sherry shepards trash hoesband too ! Better listen to Whoopi.

                      ..well you wanted to school me on how I was supposed to work for free, I simply don’t want that type of education” wow the self awareness she brings to her conversations. She has refused to allowed herself being conditioned. I always have people trying to school me on what not to do, don’t dream to big, don’t be too ambitious. It’s so important to choose who do we listen to and take advice from. I like Mo’ thinking. She is very clear and articulate. This tells me this woman has put the time to clear up her thought process and be clear with what she wants and where she stands 👏

                              No one is going to support her because if they don't respond exactly how she wants them to, she puts them on blast. So, keep doing you, Monique! One question, "Is it working for you?"

                                Y'all should be tired of hearing the same thing over and over from this woman. She needs to get to work and stop all this talking. While she talking, Oprah, Tyler, Whoopie's all getting paid. Let it go gurl. It's been over 7 years now

                                  The woman speaks deep real truths about black people settling for less and kissing ass just to appease white people and their systems. Physical slavery has been over for blacks for many years, but mental slavery still exists with us. When we decide to no longer play the role of the happy get-along negro and we start speaking up, then we are labeled as the "problematic and difficult negro" who thinks too much of ourselves. We then become not only victimized by the white powers that be, but also by our own race for not sucking up and "playing the game."

                                      She is so bitter and jealous. Anyone that's successful and working is a sell out or a house nigga . Meanwhile she's still unemployed. Her attitude isn't getting better either. People tried to help her and she attacks them.

                                        Whoopi makes $5 million a year. Working 7 months a year 45 minutes a day! That's not "the helps" kind of money. What you make Mo?

                                        You weren’t forced or beaten so it’s not slavery if anything it’s expanding your brand or volunteer service. She really really needs to fire her husband. Why you mad sister, Whoopi is an EGOT icon and has a job making that money 👀

                                                A press junket to do a movie you worked on...is slavery. *siiiiiiigh* or you know, part of a job. actors who get paid multiple millions of dollars for a role, and who are famous enough to create a draw by talking to press about it - also happen to not be paid per appearance, it's just expected because actors usually want to do that so that the film makes more money - because they get 'points' they get a percentage of the films box office and sales. so her refusing to do the press junkets is literally throwing her own money away and other people's. it's not working for free, it's kind of like working on commission - if she raises awareness about a movie by making appearances, the movie does better in the box office and she makes more money.

I realize Mo is frustrated but her constant talking about others is not hurting them, nor is it helping her. I wish her the best.

Also, Whoopi hasn't done a movie or a TV show that she hasn't had the rights to. Also, she wasn't schooling her fat ass on how to work for free, had the bitch listened, she was schooling her on how to get paid.....LIKE SHE DID. Whoopi is a fucking EGOT, the help doesn't achieve that. She was trying to school this fool BEFORE she even did the fucking movie. Monique shady as fuck, but does it in "love".

I DON'T GOTTA WORK! HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW!!?? and then gets mad when Oprah and Tyler Perry and Whoopi Goldberg (and every other actor in the entire world) call her problematic. See you might think it's the 'truth' lpward90, but what you don't know is why you think that. Ask Lupita if she thinks doing a junket for Us is slavery, is she on Mo's side? No.
