Well, well, well, folks, strap in because Mo’Nique is serving up a piping hot plate of grievances on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast. The Oscar-winning actress and comedian decided it was time to unleash some truth bombs, and oh boy, did she deliver.
Mo’Nique, a name you’ve probably heard, went on a verbal rampage, claiming that if she were a white woman, her fame level would skyrocket, reaching the dizzying heights of none other than Melissa McCarthy. According to the 56-year-old sensation, it’s all about the opportunities, and apparently, they’re just not flowing in her direction like they should.
Sure, Mo’Nique has an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, hosted her talk show, and nabbed an Emmy nomination for portraying Ma Rainey in an HBO biopic, but hey, who cares about that when Melissa McCarthy graced the sitcom “Mike and Molly” for six seasons, bagged an Emmy, and got nominated for not one but two Academy Awards? Different tracks, same race, or so Mo’Nique wants us to believe.
But hold your horses, because Mo’Nique’s gripes don’t stop there. She’s got some bones to pick with Kevin Hart, accusing him of leaving her high and dry after promising to produce new content together. According to Mo’Nique, Hart sweet-talked her, saying they’d “do great things together,” but surprise, surprise, he allegedly wants “nothing to do with Mo’Nique” now. Miscommunication or a swift dodge? You be the judge.
And guess what? Oprah Winfrey is on Mo’Nique’s hit list too. The actress claims Oprah went behind her back, interviewed her family about some dark childhood secrets, and left her feeling downright betrayed. Apparently, Oprah wanted to bring Mo’Nique’s family on the talk show to discuss alleged sexual abuse the comedian experienced during her early years. Mo’Nique agreed, but there was a little detail she wasn’t aware of — her entire family would be spilling the tea. Cue the feeling of betrayal and a hefty serving of family drama.
So there you have it, folks, Mo’Nique’s unfiltered commentary on fame, promises broken, and a dash of family betrayal. Get your popcorn ready because it’s a bumpy ride through Hollywood’s rocky terrain, according to Mo’Nique.
