Mo'Nique Stands by Lee Daniels Tyler Perry Oprah Winfrey Diss


This week Academy Award winning actress Mo'Nique went off on Precious director Lee Daniels and producers Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey for allowing her to be blackballed in Hollywood after she refused to promote their film during the 2009 awards season without compensation [click here if you missed that]. 

Mo'Nique is not backing down...

In an interview with TMZ Mo'Nique defiantly insists she was telling the truth and that Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey sat by and let her be labeled difficult in the Hollywood community despite their friendliness on set.

I'm not a fan of Lee Daneils and Tyler Perry, and Oprah only got on my good side when she had Obama's back. But what did Mo'Nique think was going to happen when she wouldn't promote the film without being paid? She played her cards wrong on this, and now she's calling out other people. She's dumb, dumber, and dumbest all rolled into one.

She will remain unapologetic and out of work. Sometimes, we have to know when to keep quiet and fall back. By constantly talking about this issue she is proving that YES, she can't let ish go. YES, she can be difficult. And YES, she can carry a grudge. Who in H'wood is going to give her job knowing that if things don't work out in her favor, she will do a stand up about them and berate them publicly? No one.

Years from now, when she's doing stand up in strip malls near you, she'll say that she was mismanaged and mishandled and didn't have good representation when this all went down. Her own worse enemy.

I think there's more to this. Mo'Nique seems misguided and petty, but there might be something else going on like the Azealia Banks/Russell Crowe incident. I think she wanted to be famous but wasn't down for all the "EXTRA" stuff Black people have to do to get to a "high" level as an entertainer:

~ Alleged attacks on other Black entertainers and Black people in general

~ Same-sex encounters and casting coach liaisons

~ Having your money, where you live, what you wear totally controlled

~ Minimal access to family and real friendships

~ Constantly working with no say over the projects or their content

~ Literal Tap Dancing and degrading acts

As someone said, there's a reason the late Bernie Mack, Holly Robinson-Peete, and the Reids are not bigger stars

Even if it's true. Keep quiet collect your check and keep it moving.

She is allowing her "husbad" to destroy what is left of her career. Why do women allow men to dictate how they move in their career. Especially since he has no experience with it and the advice is bad. She worked long and hard to get where she is for one man to tare it down. She is a fool, is this how she proves her love to him? All he wants is money even after the marriage and kids.

Nah, she not loud fat and dumb, well maybe. She just is not handling the situation well and proving everything anyone says negative against her correct. She could simply do an interview talking about her hardships since the encounter. The difference between she and Richard Pryor was the era doesn't measure the same. She needs a new approach.
I also agree her husband is misguiding her

So that's why she's mad? Because Oprah and Tyler didn't speak up for her? Oh. And here folks were talking about illumanti, sex parties, blood sacrifices...Lol. At least we have a bit of clarity now.

She damn near did the part for free, so to be blackballed is just wrong. I'm hoping Oprah will say she had nothing to do with the pettiness.

Monique need to sit down somewhere girl u been a hater all your life u hated skinny girls cause u wanted to be skinny now u hate them cause u not them girl u need Jesus

blondie said...

@ anonymous 9:35 am ... RESOUNDING MIC DROP!! That is exactly what is happening. I didn't have her pegged as a puppet but I was wrong.

She's just doing what overly emotional people do, they react to situations they have no controlover. Her ranting isn't going to hurt the industry or any of the three she's referring to. This is typical Hollywood enlightenment, it happens to all of them eventually, but the smart ones realize this while stacking their coins and staying quiet and doing their "jobs", disappearing and emerging when they feel like it after they've reached that status. Denzel, Morgan Freeman, Jim Carrey, Shia Labeouf etc. while they don't say anything loudly in publicly, we see it in their attitudes, tones of speech and remarks. Still, it doesn't matter to the powers that be because they know "There's a sucker born everyday"!

12:09 Thats deep. They can always replace their employees. They will always find someone that looks like monique who is willing to listen.

PhxSun said...

@12:48- Yep, you're right. This is Moniques' delayed "reaction" to the "Hidden Figures" diss.

She has a right to feel how she wants to and address the situation in her way.

It is her life.

I think that the more she shines light on this the better. It needs to be said.

Some people are very vocal when they get Lied on especially if it negatively impacts their career. So she is speaking out.
I don't blame her.

Plus all publicity is good publicity so she is getting exposure either way.

She just focus on independent projects and she will be fine.

Monique is just trying to tell us that Oprah, Tyler and Lee are satanic. She doesn't want to play the game but she already sold her soul when she played that demonic black character in Precious. They all have to move to LA eventually to participate in the rituals. Dave Chapelle alluded to this before he joined the brotherhood for fame and fortune.

Mo’Nique continued, explaining to Lemon that she got paid just $50,000 for her role in “Precious,” and so she hoped that they would’ve received some financial assistance to cover her travel and promote the movie: “It really wasn’t about the money and I am not complaining because I signed up to do it [“Precious”] with my friend […] When the movie studio said we can’t pay you to do this, we [her husband and herself] didn’t have a problem with that.”

YASSSSS @ 9:21 ... I will only add that she is fastly becoming a consistent STUNT QUEEN. The last time she came out with this bull, she and Sydney were about to release that AWFULLY acted "Blackbird" movie. I wonder what they are about to release. Also, See original Aunt Viv... She's known more for her rants and that ONE show than anything else. There's something to be said for letting your work speak for you.

What in the hell is she doing? Go sit down.

Don't know about TP, but O had her Mo's family on to talk about the fact that she was molested by her brother.

@ 1:20 Exactly !

Unlike most people you actually LISTENED.

Monique is REsponding to what she is being asked.

She keeps getting asked about that situation so she chooses to respond truthfully to these same questions.

It's not like she just ups & talks about it repeatedly for the fun of it.

She could've chose to not answer BUT they KEPT asking her about it.

Maybe now they will leave the question alone

PhxSun said...

She's getting blowback due to her immature response to a question asked. This whole incident should've been discussed privately among the adults that were there. To blame the audience for asking a question that broke the dam, for the sake of hoooonesty, is stoopid! Now she has plenty of time to be a stay at home mommy to her husband.

OWN network spelled backwards is New World Order. Thats says it all, please support Monique for telling the truth.

Just because someine ASK you a question Doesn't mean uou have to respond.
You notice she never responds directly to the open marriage question
