Academy Award winning actress Mo’Nique has been in the news for quite a few months now as she battles rumors of being ‘blackballed’ in Hollywood, but now it’s time to show & prove with a new release.
[FLASHBACK: He Say/She Say: Mo’Nique vs. Lee Daniels… (VIDEO)]
Despite all of the nay-sayers, Mo’Nique & her husband, Sidney Hicks put their money and her acting skills behind their own project and are prepping for the release of ‘Blackbird,’ Mo’Niques first film since, Precious.
The film, starring Mo’Nique & Isaiah Washington, was shot a few months back in Mississippi.

“And why should just being who you are be a struggle? Since Mo’Nique won the Oscar, we have received a flood of scripts, but nothing captured our attention until Isaiah — who we have a high level of respect for — sent us ‘Blackbird.’”

On his show being stereotypical and/or ‘glorifying’ baby mama…
Basically, I can get what they mean by ‘glorifying’ because the name of my show was ‘All My Baby Mamas’… I had nothing to do with that. Period. That was something the network came up with and I was telling them, I didn’t like that name.
I have 11 kids and 10 baby mamas. 11+10 is 21 and I wanted by show to be called, ‘Shawty Lo: Being 21.’
But they did what they wanted to do and I think that’s one reason we got backlash…
