You know how one person’s gold is another’s garbage and vice versa?
Well Academy Award winning actress/comedienne/talk show host Mo’Nique doesn’t place a huge value that solid gold statue she received for her role in Precious.
In fact, in the April 2011 issue of Ebony magazine, Mo-Apostrophe-Nique (© Freshalina) reveals to writer Toure that she keeps her Oscar in her pantry between the fruit loops & canned spam. (I kidd… but not really!)
Mo’nique explains in detail where she keeps the golden statue below: Continue Reading…
Mo’Nique won Best Supporting Actress last year for her role in “Precious” and it’s customary for the previous year’s Oscar winners to present the awards to the current year’s Oscar winners in each category.
All of last year’s winners were in attendance… except Mo’Nique.
So the big question is… why did Monique skip the show? Continue Reading…
Comedienne/Actress/BET Host Mo’Nique and her hubby/business partner Sidney Hicks hit the “Black” carpet of the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta last weekend.
Mo’Nique looked amazing onstage and off, but the Oscar winning diva, who was clowned maliciously for her hairy legs during the Golden Globes Awards, is still sticking to her guns about that dayum leg hair.
If you recall, Mo’Nique has discussed her “hairy situation” (and also clarified her “open marriage”) on more than one occasion.
She talked about it on The View and most recently during her post-Oscar interview with Barbara Walters, where she said that her husband loves it so she ain’t changing a thing.

I dunno…Hubby looks a lil worried too Mo.
It’s a shame she won’t even consider shaving…a trim? or at least think about rocking a longer dress. But I guess if he likes it… we love it. *shrug*

Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas hit up BET’s Mo’Nique Show recently to promote her new reality show, “What Chilli Wants.”
During her discussion with Mo’Nique, Chilli went down her list of requirements for a mate and she’s sticking to at least one requirement that is a deal breaker:
“Some little person came up with that, “it’s not the size of the boat theory”… I want a big ship!”
Mo’Nique follows up with…. “if you have a rowboat you’re not the man for Chilli. She wants the brother with the yacht!”
In keeping this post PG, I’ll have to co-sign with Chilli. A big boat is always better!
Chilli also reveals that she doesn’t consider herself a “single” parent cause her baby daddy, Dallas Austin is always involved.

Mo’Nique is felling some kinda way after the brother she accused of molesting her as a child appeared on Oprah this week. Gerald Imes approached Oprah’s show for the interview after Mo’Nique revealed during Barbara Walters Oscar special that she had been molested.

Although Winfrey asked Mo’Nique if it was okay if Gerald Imes appeared on her show, the actress feels that he lied during the interview and that it was not sympathetic enough towards her.
Oprah and Mo’Nique were never the best of friends… Mo’Nique was less than impressed with how the interview played out as she felt that her brother lied and that it was not sympathetic enough towards her.
She was particularly upset that Gerald lied to Oprah that he molested her while she was sleeping because she was wide awake and scared of him. Also, she is angry that he did not get any help or enter a rehab and she does not trust him around children.
Oprah asked her to appear on her show again for another interview but at this point she has declined the invitation.
If anything it has made the situation worse between Mo’Nique and her family and she doesn’t know if she will ever speak to them again now. (Source)
