Kimberly Elise Stands with Mo'Nique


Last month pop culture journalist Jawn Murray leaked an email exchange between comedian Mo'Nique and Almost Christmas director Will Packer to prove working with Mo'Nique was difficult and to discredit her calls to boycott Netflix over racial and gender inequality [click here if you missed that].

Mo'Nique's Almost Christmas co-star Kimberly Elise tells a different story...

Wow, you know Kimberly Elise is worshipped by Oprah! Lol. Now if that don't beat all. Oprah always calls kim the greatest actress of all time and even did Beloved with her! Lol. I Love seeing someone Oprah loves standing with someone Oprah hates. IRONY.

When you take a stand always look at who is "standing" with you. Now ask yourself...is this how I want to represent myself? Are these the people I want to be associated with? If the answer is "yes" keep standing. But if you look around and all the people with you are kinda lame, or ignorant and outta touch...sit yo ass down!

And thats my 2 bits about all these "stands" everybody is making.

Y'all have a good day.

Maybe it's me but Ms. Elise didn't address,specifically, what Mr. Murray said occurred on the set- the demands, allegedly, Mo and Sidney were making on the set. I think Mo DID bring sparkle to the film and Ms. Elise confirms it. I also agree with Ms. Elise that the film wouldn't have been been the same without Monique- but she didn't (or couldn't) address the specific issues Mr. Packer, allegedly, had with Mo and her husband.

6:42 exactly....Ima grown man, if I agree with someone or not, loyalties and whatever the fuck else be damned, that's what Ima do. This is not the fucking playground. If Oprah seriously takes issue with this (btw Elise is clearly referring to the industry as a whole) then thats her sensitive rich ass

What exact movie were y'all looking at? Because the "Almost Christmas" that I saw was garbage. Its just that there are so few good holiday Black films, we flock to them, so they're an automatic success. Just like artists always do holiday albums, hoping for royalties like Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas". I'm just saying, "Precious" was a highly acclaimed work. "Almost Christmas" was a step above a Madea flick.

Kimberly Elise is such an underrated actress.
I didn't think I would like Almost Christmas but it is a cute movie. Monique was funny in it too.

i use to respect her but oh well. some people cant even get $10 an hours and this fat chick is crying b/c 500k is not enough.........please........

Just an observation said...

Mo'Nique was the sparkle in Almost Christmas. Her and JB Smooth had me in tears.

Mo'Nique is the ish! Don't know why they won't do her right... I guess they can only have one big Black woman on top and since Oprah is it... well.

@8:53 am... you make no sense. Just like people who can't control their emotions and/or uneducated who keep running their mouths and throwing insults with no real facts to debate... Only preteens (that would be 14-18 year olds) and young college kids should be making $10 an hour. Get your game up please :)
