Welp… it doesn’t look like this Mo’Nique ‘Blackballing’ situation is going away anytime soon (at least not if she can help it).
In the ongoing saga over whether the Academy Award winning actress was ever offered the coveted role of Cookie Lyon on the hit Fox series “Empire,” Mo’nique is back and this time… she’s pulled receipts!

Mo’Nique recently appeared on the SiriusXM radio show “Sway in the morning,” where she told host Sway Calloway that last year, Daniels called her saying, “You got the role, but you know, there’s some technical stuff — I aint’ never done TV before, so you gotta go through the technical part.”
Mo’Nique then produced proof of their conversation… printed-out emails she said were sent to her by Daniels’ camp shortly after their conversation, asking her representatives to coordinate a screen test, before they later announced the deal was dead.
