Mo’Nique is fighting vehemently for both her career and her reputation.
The star’s claim that she was told she had been “blackballed” by Hollywood has not only made headlines but has also birthed a slew of new ones.
Most notable in the midst of the mayhem has been her war of words with ‘Precious’ director Lee Daniels – the man she says informed her of her relegated status.
Unapologetic, Daniels (who is enjoying ample success with his FOX series ‘Empire’), elaborated on his statement by adding that he feels the actress/comedian ultimately “blackballed” herself by bailing on promotional duties.
Still on the rebuttal trail, Mo and her husband/manager Sidney Hicks stopped by V103 radio in Atlanta this week to tell their side of the story.
A fascinating watch, the pair expand on the reasons for rejecting the requests (from the movie studio, Oprah Winfrey, and others) to promote the film abroad.
What’s more, while suggesting that she’s the latest in a long line of “friends” Daniels has turned on, Mo’ revealed that Halle Berry has fallen foul of his favour and that she witnessed him call the ‘Extant’ actress a “b*tch.”
