So EVERYONE else is wrong. And EVERYONE is saying the same thing. Fuck that "receipts" bullshit. Come with work and come with professionalism.

NO PAYCHECKS.

@9:39 I’m starting to get that no matter what, people will always take sides with the most popular/POWERFUL. Not EVERYONE is saying the same thing. Look at the video. The “regular” people on set said that she was not hard to work with. The only people that have a problem are the people who are supposed to be PAYING her. No actors have come forward stating that she was hard to work with. The most opinionated are the “friends” and people who want to be apart of the “GAME”.
People just don’t like her because they precieve she is weak because of her choices with her husband (Daddy, open relationship, losing weight). They think that her husband is controlling... which may, or may not be the point. That doesn’t mean you slander someones character. Moniques been positive throughout the whole ordeal and that still isn’t enough. Monique proved herself to me when she did the show for prisoners. People who get judged all the time, but she wanted to give them a little happiness. She showed love regardless of faults. She goes against the grain. Watch more people come out about not getting paid enough. Wanda already did. I mean she isn’t even asking us to boycott anymore. She’s definding herself because of slander. When I was a teen everybody loved her on Queens of Comedy
Oh but now she’s a problem and to vulger bla, bla, bla.

10:23AM I agree with your sentiments. People are so quick to turn against our own and look at them as if their feelings are illegitimate... y'all didn't see white people stop protecting that fudged up white kid after his family was exposed for the racists that they were. Why do we criminalize our own people over such minuscule things? Just sad

I believe she's not getting paid what she thinks she's worth. Monique may not be hard to work with. But she has a big mouth with no filter.

That podcast has been her Waterloo. Telling Oprah to suck her dick. Calling out Tyler Perry and then putting him on blast when he calls to open dialog with her-on that same damn podcast.
Career suicide!

As far as Will Packer and the others they are acting in the sic dog mode. Too much pile on. So much that it feels like over kill. Gary Owen should've kept his albino mouth shut. That's bullshit about him defending his friend. Will Packer grown. He had already defended himself. Although I see Packer's part in a conspiracy. He too could've shut his damn mouth. At this point I think they are doing the white folks bidding.

The husband had no experience and should never have her manager. He has managed her career into the ground. Besides managers have several clients.

Also the last few times she has made video statements she has left her "daddy" somewhere else. Which is what she should have done when she met him.

Trust me they both know that they have severely damaged her career. Maybe beyond repair

Sorry but I never liked her. EVER. Not on Queens of Comedy, not that sitcom she did, not her talk show. Never. And we decide what we will work for. When I thought I was being underpaid, I went to leadership and asked for what I knew I was worth and I got it. When I was lowballed in another offer, I said point blank, “I won’t work for that.” And they gave me what I asked for.

If someone knows their worth and has value that justifies the pay they’re demanding, then only a fool would take less than that. THIS chick Mo’nique is asking for something that makes her look insane and then wants everyone to jump on her looney bandwagon.

I am not giving any of her videos the time of day but here’s the question about her so called receipts and your claims about the “regular” people whatever the hell that means - was it Mo’nique telling us what people think of her or were those people telling us what they think? Oh ok then. 🙄 AND, dear, if you are nice to your peers and the folks under you but insubordinate to your boss, guess what? You’re difficult to work with, gon’ get yo’ @$$ fired, and will have no work references to back you up. HENCE MONIQUE’S CURRENT SITUATION.

Mo been in the indusrty a loong time. If she was THAT hard to work with she would never of had that longevity nor been asked to be in the will packer movie in the first. This is just propaganda because she's standing up to the slave-pay mentality system.

Will Packer hiding behind that white boy and that homosexual biracial's skirt.

Just tell us if you paid under $1 mill total for Last Christmas casting. Danny Glover, Gabriel Union, Kimberly Elise, and Nicole Ari Parker SHARING $1 million for a movie... Among with Moniy and others. Did she lie or not?

Be unapologetic. That's right, baby!

Tyrese dogged the shit out of black women while claiming his non black wife as his black queen. No comparisons at all.

Yeah, what receipts exactly? Where is the producer or director coming forward to say how easy she is to work with? The grips and electricians don't sign the checks and she likely has zero interaction with them.

When all this is said and done nobody will hire her and then what? She wanted $20 million but she's mostly doing small clubs. The comedians she was comparing herself to do STADIUMS.

Y'all love Mo so much go see her MOther's day show. LOTS of tickets still available.
Or you can go see her play, lots of tickets available.

It's over and she did it to herself. Y'all want to talk about the iluminati, skull and bones, etc. There is no secret here. She runs her mouth, complains and tries to renegotiate after signing a deal. That's not how you get ahead or maintain a career.

All you guys bitching and moaning on her behalf must not know how to actually deal with people in the real world. You should take a break from selling essential oils, get a real job and educate yourself.

If these folks are slandering her rep, why nit sue?????

Laa soul said...

@E-Strokes, thank you, my sentiments exactly. Monique needs to take some ownership regarding her behavior. How anyone thinks that telling someone to suck something (you don't have) and expect to be taken as a serious professional, I just don't get.

@10:52am. Amen especially to the last four sentences of your post.

And btw, I would love to hear from Martin Lawrence, a fellow comedienne, since she was in his movie, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins. I can honestly say Monique was hella funny in that role.

At the end of the day, Monique needs to go back to the drawing board because what she's doing is not working.

@4:04 you can't sue someone for telling the truth. Her being difficult is an opinion and people are entitled to them. She's a public figure too so the bar for slander and liable is much higher.

@ Miss JI
Can’t argue with your opinion. You’re right. You’ll definitely get fired if you are insubordinate to your boss. I think that she does need better representation. I really don’t think that she’s asking for too much though, especially when I’ve heard what Netflix pays for shows even excluding Amy Schumer’s stand up. She has an Oscar. If she had different representation like Octavia Spencer had gunning for her, she may have made more. But still her worth is up there regardless of representation. Why keep saying no because of what Lee Daniels says. Did will packard think that since she was already blackballed he wouldn’t have to pay her as much as much? She is an excellent actor to me.

My biggest point is that it’s surprising to see most people shooting against her. I feel like people sway more so towards the powerful, who to me are a small few. That’s where my “regular” comment comes in because I feel like Oprah, Tyler Perry, Will Packer, and Lee Daniel’s are some of the “elite” of black entertainment.

I don't think people are intentionally shooting against her, I for one do not want her to fail. I think people saw she has a legitimate beef, but her delivery sucked and as a grown ass woman, she knew better. Why does she keep on tagging people in her messages? Why didn't she find a new outlet like Wanda Sykes and invest in herself? That is what smart and logical people do. Out of pocket individuals like herself involve "regular" people as she calls them and used them to fight her battles. As a result, her voice is becoming "blah blah blah" to regular people, who got way bigger problems then she got.

Why isn't anyone asking her why didn't she take the 3 million she was allegedly first offered? Jawn Murray revealed that Monique was offered that much if she would audition first. I guess she feels she's above that, but I bet she wishes she had taken the 3 million.

The cast of "Last Christmas" deserved to be compensated well over a million dollars. If the cast were white they wouldn't be subjected to having to split 1 million dollars. That's probably what the lowest paid actor/actress alone would have been paid.
