Mo'nique Calls Out Hollywood Figures In Candid Interview With Shannon Sharpe

Comedian and actor Mo’Nique recently sat down with Shannon Sharpe for a revealing interview on the Club Shay Shay podcast, where she didn’t hold back in calling out various Hollywood figures. The nearly three-hour-long episode trended on social media and sparked conversations across platforms.

During the interview, Mo’Nique addressed past comments made by Tiffany Haddish about her and her husband, Sidney Hicks, and brought up Haddish’s DUI incidents and her involvement in a scandal where she was accused of grooming a child with comedian Aries Spears.

Mo’Nique also discussed her long-standing feud with Oprah Winfrey, stemming from an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010. She felt blindsided when family members she didn’t approve of appeared on the show and downplayed the abuse she suffered from her brother Gerald Imes. Mo’Nique called out Oprah for overstepping boundaries and expressed her disappointment.

Another notable revelation in the interview was Mo’Nique’s discussion about Kevin Hart. She claimed that Hart initially agreed to work with her on new projects, but later withdrew from their deal. Mo’Nique revealed a phone call recording where Hart’s manager, Dave Becky, stated that Kevin wanted nothing to do with her. This incident allegedly caused Mo’Nique to lose out on significant opportunities, such as being replaced in the role of Cookie on Empire.

Mo’Nique also discussed how Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey allegedly contributed to blackballing her in Hollywood. She mentioned being labeled as difficult after refusing to do non-contractual promotion for her role in Precious. Mo’Nique claimed that Perry and Winfrey asked her to work for free and became the gatekeepers who acted against her career interests.

In addition, Mo’Nique spoke about her feud with D.L. Hughley, as well as her disappointment with civil rights leader Al Sharpton’s lack of support during her conflicts with Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry.

This candid interview with Shannon Sharpe allowed Mo’Nique to address longstanding issues and shed light on the challenges she has faced in the entertainment industry. It sparked discussions about fairness and representation in Hollywood.
