Mo'Nique Denies $3 Million Netflix Rumor


Earlier this month comedian Mo'Nique sparked a national debate on racial and gender disparities in pay after she turned down a $500k deal with Netflix because white comedian Amy Schumer received $12 million for her Netflix comedy special [click here if you missed that].

Mo'Nique denies reports she was offered $3 million up front...

This week pop culture journalist Jawn Murray reported Netflix initially offered Mo'Nique $3 million for a comedy special if she auditioned or $500k sight unseen [click here if you missed that].

Mo'Nique's husband / manager denies the reports.

Yesterday Sidney Hicks told the Tom Joyner Morning Show,
"No, no one would promise you what they’re going to give you, prior too, based upon the condition of what you’ve done...I would be interested to know how Jawn Murray knows a deal better than we do…To answer your question no.”

I just saw Rose McGowan tell her story about Harvey Weinstein and my goodness was it powerful. I applaud her strength and bravery!!!!
Idgaf if she's white, green or purple she is a WOMAN that has gone thru what most of us don't care to admit we went thru too and if we can constantly talk about unfortunate looking Any Schumer then imma give Rose her propers.

Jawn Murray is a gay Black man who is using a Black woman as his platform to get on. I wouldn't be surprised if Lee Daniels is offering him some sort of reward for doing his bidding. He's keeping up the mess with Mo'Nique to help advance his career. He knows he can't go after the likes of Oprah or Michelle Obama. But give vultures like that the time and opportunity and *any* Black woman will feel the wrath of his visceral hate.

@1:52 This is the same Rose McGowan who was raped by Harvey Weinstein in 1999, accepted a $1million dollar settlement, then posed for pictures with Weinstein in 2004 at a red carpet premiere? WHO THE FUCK POSES FOR PICTURES WITH THE MAN WHO RAPED THEM?!! Some of these women in Hollywood, fucked to get on! PLAIN and SIMPLE! I am not condoning the behavior of these scumbags in Hollywood, or in the everyday world in general, but you lose credibility with me if you are smiling in a picture with the rapist and continued to do business with them. I'm just saying!

@COOLKID - Exactly! The duplicitousness of some of these women is ridiculous.

Jawn Murray is a well known journalist. Him being gay has nothing to do with it.

Lee Daniels is gay but it didn't stop Monique from working for him and wanted to do so again during the making of Empire.

@2:52, Define "well-known". I had never heard of Jawn Murray prior to this Mo'Nique fiasco. And I mentioned him being gay because there's a strong likelihood that he does know and frequent the circles that Lee Daniels does. The Black gay community is not that big.

What my statements did *not* imply was that Mo'Nique doesn't like gays or was a homophobe. She's actually the complete opposite. She goes up for the LGBTQ community...that's how she ended up in the same circles as Lee Daniels.

@2:45 Actually Rose was given $100,000, not a million, to shut up about the incident after she told several people in the industry about what happened and they told her she should let it go. She used some of that money to pay her bills after she couldn't find work after she outed Weinstein. If she voluntarily slept with him to get roles why would she then "lie" on him and ruin her own career? Weinstein sent lawyers (among other people) to scare the crap out of her and threatened to make her look like a drug crazed maniac if she didn't let it go, so she played along.

No one cares anymore. You're over Monique.

Monique should fire her husband as her manager. He has taken her no where, but in the toilet. She is going to be like Mary J Blige when they divorce.

Thank you love^^^i don't have the energy to debate this. I'm a survivor as well and what happened to that girl like many others is tragic. That snake had all of Hollywood against her for speaking out and hell yea she deserved that money and then some.
I was in the company of my abuser many times b4 during and after. I was young, scared and nobody believed me. He had me thinking I had to turn to him. Thats what they do. That's exactly why they prey on YOUNG girls.

COOLKID said...

@3:10 Why did she continue to do business with him? Posing and smiling with him in a photo at a Movie Premiere... Who does that?

Anonymous said...

@3:20 Monique won't be as lucky as MJB. Mary has always been able to dust herself and keep it moving. The only way I see MoNique bouncing back is by letting go of the husband and letting Oprah Winfrey shame her on TV like she did iyanla before giving her a show on the OWN network.

I stand with Mo'nique.....still!!

Thank you Nestafan, women need to stick together, not tear each other down. Sexism has gone on WAYYY too long. If you don't understand how a young woman can be photographed with a powerful boss who raped her, then you've never been put in that situation. Good for you! If you HAVE been in that situation and spoke up, you wouldn't have a career. Good for you!
Prissa O - please take your ass on somewhere, cosigning with some MAN who knows nothing about being raped and still trying to keep a career. Male chauvinists get ZERO passes from now on and women who enable them are the scum of the earth.

MO'NIQUE GOT AN OSCAR PLAYING THE MOST HORRIBLE AND DEGRADING AND DISGUSTING BLACK MOTHER ONSCREEN TO ATTAIN HER OSCAR. SHE PLAYED A MOTHER WHO HAD RELATIONS WITH HER DAMN DAUGHTER NO LESS AND ANYONE IS STANDING UP FOR THIS LOWLIFE SAID:
This is how they get blacks to win by playing or "acting" detestable and dishonourable Think Halle and Denzel! Mo'nique played an abomination of a mother and had the nerve to get big headed about someone we would have locked up if we would have personally known. Who cares what was offered Mo you should have taken it because the only 1 that made it was PRECIOUS.

Why do niggas think trying in all caps means a damm thang? Shit is just comical. Nobody scared of you or your shallow ass opinion. You can keep all that yelling to your damm self. You may want to learn to accept the fact that others may have opinions that differ from yours. That's the fucking way it is weird bitch.

i'm not listening to the videos but the quotes from her husband reads as if he his talking in circles basically be otherworda lying, didn't make sense, and shows they think are better ask the question "how he would know better than them" but didnt netflix state that was offered the 3mill? not info from jawn himself? think that is his name if not mistaken

my phone skips all over the place basically lying otherwords BS

C&P of my previous comment on the issue.

Jawn and Tony Rock are misogynistic black woman hating trolls. The story that Netflix offered her $3 million BEFORE requesting that she audition makes 0 sense. Why audition when you already offered her something? Monique says that Netflix reps came to her shows TWICE before making an offer. This makes more sense than offering before seeing her perform.

Netflix is slandering this Black woman's reputation and using a gay black man to do it.

Jawn has apparently been targeting monique for years.

Why does Dave Chappelle deserve $60 million and Wanda less than $250,000.

Monique is the most awarded comedian of all time. This is NOT a light. Whoopi is just under her.

All this talk but no one doing the homework. I watched Monique and her husband talk about the issue and what they said made perfect sense.

The entire cast of Will Packer's movie "This Christmas"
made $ 1 million together, not each, TOGETHER, total. That's Gabrielle Union, Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover, and Monique others in one movie SHARING $1 million for a movie that made over $42 million, and $22 million in profit.

That's a fucking shame and you people know it.

Halle won an Oscar and has said that it didn't prove any benefit for other work. Monique won her Oscar about 10 years ago, she should know that Hollywood is all about "what have you done lately?" It's also about who you know. She has cut off her noise to spite her face in regards to Oprah,Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry. Now she's ending any relationship with Netflix. Monique'' husband is "raising" her to be a damn fool who eventually will have nothing.

@8:37PM "Monique is the most awarded comedian. This is NOT a light. Whoopi is just under her"... Damn, you really must've have been on the short bus in high school. Whoopi Goldberg has been a successful black female comedian for well over 30 + years. She starred in classics like "The Color Purple", Sister Act, (1 &2), Ghost in which she when won best Supporting Actress for, help with one of the biggest fund raisers in history with HBO's Comic Relief, hosted the Oscars, has been on the hit talk show The View for years, and is still touring the country as a legendary successful black female comic, whom I saw down in New Orleans. Monique is NOT the most awarded comedian of all time! Eddie Murphy! HELLO!

12:57 not just nominations for WINS it IS Monique. She tends to actually win when nominated. Chris actually had more noms than her but LESS WINS. It IS her.

Moniique's husband is the ventriloquist and she is the dummy.

Just an observation said...

Mo'nique was declared the most decorated comedian because she has won 56 awards which doesn't include her Oscar. Whoopie Goldberg has won 54 awards which doesn't include her Oscar. Eddie Murphy has won 30 awards. Black people who shouldn't be in the public eye doing the dirty work for those scared to speak out for themselves. For black people especially on Snitch, to claim the Oscars is a sham, why do they feel the need to be acknowledged by them etc., all of a sudden people touting Whoopie''s Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy awards. Now, that is comical. Whoopie ain't said shit against Mo'nique and won't because she knows how it feels to black balled in Hollywood. She always thanks Barbara Walters for giving her a chance after Hollywood black balled her for several years.

@8:37 EXACTLY!!!!!
Everything that you said was on point.
Netflix is trying to divide & conquer by slandering her to save face.

Common sense should tell you that this Jawn character was NOT privy to that kind of infp, plus it makes no sense and he is going hard with the Lie like Netflix is his family or something.

Clearly he is doing their bidding for a fee.
I want to know how much HE is getting. LoL



Also to the folks on here talking/ debating the Rose McGowan issue.....
#1 Y'all are on the wrong thread
#2 Nobody gives a damn at all
#3 Go somewhere else with that mess


This is about Monique
