Club Shay Shay: Mo’Nique talks entertainment scum

HOLLYWOOD — Dammit Katt Williams! Look what you’ve started. Oscar-winning actress Mo’Nique, 56, appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast (the male show with a female moniker) to confabulate the entertainment industry, Taraji P. Henson’s “Color Purple” beef, her upbringing in Baltimore, her “Queens of Comedy” experience, and the many challenges she faced as an African American thespian. Mo’Nique also addressed her clashes with Oprah Winfrey and Lee Daniels, and she said Tyler Perry admitted he got her blacklisted in Hollywood. “Tyler Perry called us up and he said, ‘I can see the pain in you and I can hear it, and I want to let you know that I would never do nothing to hurt you,” Mo’Nique recalled. “But the conversation kept going on, only for Tyler Perry to admit he did start a rumor that I was difficult to work with. He lied.”

Perry’s exaggeration cost Mo’Nique a boatload of mazuma because the aforementioned Daniels offered her a big-time role in the “Empire” TV series only to renege and give it to Taraji. “Cookie from the show ‘Empire,’ I was offered that role,” Mo’Nique recounted. “Now, Taraji tore it up. However, I was offered that. Then [they] called me back and said, ‘Babygirl… you too difficult to work with.”

Mo’Nique, who starred in “Precious,” was blacklisted shortly after winning an Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” in 2010, and she went more than a decade without a massive payday. Mainly because her husband, Sidney Hicks, is her manager and Winfrey, Daniels and Perry didn’t want to work with him. When Mo’Nique was at her lowest, Kevin Hart swooped in to save the day.

“When my family was up against the wall, Kevin Hart wrote us a check,” she said.

“We’re forever grateful for that.” 

But the powers that be told Hart to stay the f*ck away from Mo’Nique and he brushed her off too.

Katt called 2024 the year of truth.

He wasn’t bullsh*ttin.’

Seems everybody’s spilling the tea nowadays.

  4. Man… this interview got me through the day here at work…. still love MoNique

  5. When you tell the truth- there’ll be repercussions. So should I tell a lie to get a reward- MONIQUE❤

  6. If steven Spielberg or Ellen did to us what Oprah and tyler perry did, we’d be losing our ish.

  8. I agree 💯 percent with Mo she gets treated like this because the way she looks! I know that’s true because I’m light skinned and my twin is dark skinned, society treat me nicer. I hate it!!😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

  9. Gadeom! I admit I bought into the bullshiiite they said about Mo’Nique. They hoodwinked me good! 😮😮😮

  10. So Is Club Shay Shay the Head Ni*gga in charge?! MoNique told a great story!

  11. if u wanna know what it feels like when 3 hours go by like 5 minutes, you’ve come to the right place.

  12. I love the way she talks about her husband!!!!! Yes !!! Love ❤️❤️❤️ we need that!!!


  14. She should sue Tyler Perry for defamation of character.

  15. Monique said on the breakfast club in 2018 that if you can’t say their names then keep it on the playground.
    Tyler, Oprah, Kevin, D.L., Tiffany. She said ALL of their names 😎☕️

  16. What Monique is talking about happens in work environments in all industries. One manager, one influential colleague, one executive can kill a person’s career. One person in a boardroom, meetings and conversation can cast a shadow on your skills, your credibility, your character. Based off a lie or a mere opinion with no facts to back it up.
    Usually those people get away with it. They’re upset because Monique called them out.

  17. I’m sorry I don’t trust Monique she been rocking with Oprah 🤔 then when she didn’t wanna play the game no more now she mad 🤔 Precious was Horrible 😠 but she did it, she said her husband can cheat on her, threesomes smh, then she was dissing Big girls, then flipped on them after she lost weight I’m telling y’all She a snake she’s playing both ends watch and see 😮😮

  18. Never will I understand how a man who wasn’t known back when Mo was at her greatest could come in and ruin her the way he did. It’s utterly disgusting and shameful! I loved me some Tyler P! But after him and Oprah screwed MO’s career I lost all respect for them both! LOVE YOU MO!

  19. So what I got from this is that Monique is a snitch 😂😂 .. lmao I respect her for what’s she doing but she a snitch
