Mo'Nique Show Gets the Axe



According to reports The Mo'Nique Show is on "indefinite hiatus"...

Rodney Ho from the AJC got confirmed reports from Monique's sidekick Rodney Perry that the show was a goner.

Rodney writes
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.”

That’s a euphemism for canceled.

In an interview I did at 2:40 p.m., the stand-up comic said he enjoyed the experience working with Mo’Nique. “I’m selling out shows now,” he said. “That’s a win.” He heard the news from Mo’Nique’s husband but hasn’t spoken to the Oscar-winning actress yet.

This didn’t appear to be an issue of ratings. I didn’t have time to do an entire season’s check on ratings so I sampled four weeks in April, 2011 vs. April 2010. Ratings from April 5 to April 29, 2010 averaged 615,000 viewers a night. From April 4 to April 28, 2011, her show averaged 586,000. That’s only a five percent drop.

I'm a big fan of Monique but I didn't like the show. it just came off to preachy and all that yes baby use to drive me nuts.

I got fed up of her sucking up to every celeb guest she had on that show, particularly Charles Barkely. That was nauseating!

She's ghetto and so was the show. Her sidekick was pointless, and embarrassing. I used to like Monique but after I learned about how she's cool with her husband sleeping with other women (and possibly men), I was over this chick. She's still an insecure overwieght girl who pretends to love herself and be a strong woman but she isn't.

And that whole wrap your arms around yourself and give yourself a big hug is a bunch of lame bs. That's something someone who is content with being alone for the rest of their lives would do. You can't give yourself a comforting hug, that's why God created companions for us.

Good!
I was sick of all that damn Yelling and hollering the hype for all her one-hit-wonder guests. She would hype a wet paper-towel from the Dollar General store.

Yeah, Mo was definitely trying to get more money and EBT said "hell to the naw" and gave her the deuces. Girl, I understand, you got a husband and twins. You better start meeting with the networks and get your ass a sitcom....

Aside from Monique's annoying antics on the show, I believe America is becoming disenchanted with talk shows. With all the twittering and other social media outlets, we don't need to hear one on one interviews with celebrities.
They show their real unedited selves and tell all with twitter, etc. so who needs a talk show?

LOL! All she does is scream. I have never watched a single episode of her show...not a snippet but I have seen her on other shows. I was MORTIFIED when she was the hostess of "Charm School". Wow...that big, fat, braying at the top of her lungs, hairy legged bitch actually trying to teach bitches how to be prim, proper and classy?

That's like Donald Trump giving hair stylist lessons!

RNBTHUG the only thing you care about is how shitty dicks smell, you homosexual bitch so even if her pussy smelled like a fresh roses on a dewy spring day...it would still nauseate your Rupaul stanning ass.

Good for the FAT loud mouth bitch, bitch forgot she was the Host and not the BOSS.

THAT'S TO BAD LOVED HER SHOW....SHE WAS POSITIVE TO HER GUEST AND UPLIFTING. I liked the mix of Monique and then Wendy ...Two totally different kind of host. BET should reconsider there decision. Well Maybe Monique could get a better show on Oprah's OWN network .

Good, Fat bitch! Now her black side kick is going to have to find another job!

FOR THE MOST PART SHE HAD INTERESTING GUESTS, BUT ALL THAT FREAKIN HOLLERING AND MUSTERING UP TEARS FOR CERTAIN GUESTS WAS JUST TOO MUCH OVER THE TOP. HER SIDEKICK WAS JUST PATHETIC AND NOT FUNNY AT ALL. I REFUSED TO WATCH HER SHOW SIMPLY BECAUSE OF HER BEING SO LAME....HOPE IT IS OFF THE AIR FOOD GOOD!

I have always felt Monique was not a genuine person. She hypes up every interaction with others, and I am guessing BET said enough! We are not paying you anymore $$ no matter what aware you won.

I Need Talk Shows, twitter can't show me a live performance, what they're wearing, if they're fine-their beauty face and body, and on talk shows you get the better behaved celebrity, twitter does not offer a good fantasy.
I need a visual, a new outfit and hair-do, all that good visual stuff.

I'm hoping they cancel Wendell Williams show next. At least Monique had better guest. Wendell has 90 year old white women as guest on his show.

I never had a problem with Mo because she came off as being real as far as telling it like it is, or saying what was on her mine. When she had that reality show - Flavor Of Love Charm Girl School? I was floored with the episold when she called that white boitch a WHORE. And during the reunion when Old girl on there Mother came up on stage bout to get in Mo's ass about talking down to her daughter (Which) the girl was fast, out of control and all Mo said was, One day Aressa was going to run into the wrong person with that mouth of hers and end up with a slashed throat.
Now Mo's show was cool the first season. Then it got tiresom and boring with her co host acting a fool and an ass. Hope Mo get back into acting on the screen. I think she was funny in 2 can pay that with vivca fox, and on baby boy. Phat Girls was alright too. Good we dont have to her her screaming anymore.

I hear they was talking about doing a Waiting To Exhale part#2. I got the book? AND PLEASE DONT SPEND YOUR MONEY PEOPLE. tHE BOOK IS SHIT!
But if they do the movie, I hope Mo playOh girl who had the son who went off with the church. Loretta Devine's role.

BET hasnt had an original show worth watching since BET uncut.

I wasn't a fan of the show, but Mo can't complain.

She had a good run while it lasted.

On to the next project.

I don't really get the hate against Monique. I liked her radio show as well as the TV show. People saying she's "loud" when she sounds like your average black person on the daily. Most of you all know you have a loud aunt or cousin. Half of you are probably louder than her.

Anonymous said...

I CANNOT BELIEVE you people!!! You all bitch, complain and go in on people for every non-positive thing they do (as you should) and rant on about how they should do better. Yet, here is a non-typical looking, black, full-figured, strong woman trying to promote positivity, encourage people to be better, show the human side of celebrities- as opposed to the sides we encounter everywhere else in entertainment, and she gives you all a chance to learn more about the struggles blacks have face and how they pushed through and black culture in general.

I am disgusted by you all for not accepting and embracing someone that is averagely representive of black culture and offering you all the stories needed to uplift the race and show blacks in a POSITIVE light.

I truly don't want to here another black person complain about 'Acceptance', 'Respect', 'Making It', ect.... You all get what you deserve. As for Monique, she has been a very encouraging person and the celebrities and affluent blacks love and respect her so she will be alright. The show only lacked good writers, some talented young people for ideas and skits, and either no sidekick - or one that is ALOT better than Rodney.
