Word on the curb is that The Mo’Nique Show is on the chopping block!
BET’s late night talk show, hosted by Monica Imes AKA Mo’Nique along with her sidekick Rodney Perry, would have started its third season this fall but rumor has it, the show has been cancelled.
The Academy award winning actress/comedienne, who was just honored by Big Boi’s Big Kidz Foundation, has been plagued in recent months with reports of disputes between she and some of her higher ups at the network.
Besides all the talk show hoopla, Mo’Nique is reportedly scheduled to appear in a new new movie called “Bumped,” which is currently in pre-production.
If BET really does can The Mo’Nique Show, will you miss it?
*UPDATE 7/27/11 ~ 3:38pm: Rodney Ho of AJC’s Radio & TV Talk just confirmed that the show has been cancelled. He received confirmation of the cancellation from Comedian Rodney Perry via text message.
At about 1:30 p.m., I called Rodney Perry, who was Mo’Nique’s sidekick on the show. He said he was running into a meeting and didn’t answer my question. While I was at lunch over at the mall court, at 1:40 p.m. EST, he texted me:
“I was told indefinite hiatus.” READ MORE
So now that you know for sure… do you still feel the same?

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.

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*
