Mo’Nique: Lee Daniels Is Upset Because I Didn’t Thank Him!

Published: Monday 2nd Mar 2015 by Rashad

…and the claws are out!

Mo’Nique may have been coy last week as she took to CNN to defend herself from ‘Empire’ director Lee Daniels’ claims of her “diva” behavior, but this week we got to see a bit more of the sharp-tongued Mo we’re used to.

Hot on the promo trail for her new independent film ‘Blackbird,’ the jet-setting actress landed on ‘Good Morning America’ today to discuss her alleged “black-balled” status.  As ever, she kept it all the way real!

See what we mean below:

People were saying, ‘Someone needs to teach Mo’Nique a lesson because she’s not playing the game, and she’s gonna get in her own way of winning this award, because it seems like she’s choosing her family over Hollywood.’ I don’t think Hollywood has turned its nose up to me. I think that those are feelings that Mr. Daniels is having. And then he said, ‘You know, there were things that Mo’Nique – she didn’t thank the producers, and she didn’t thank the studio, and that’s just not things that you do.’ Well, it had nothing to do with the producers, nor the studio. Mr. Daniels had a problem that I didn’t say his name the night of the Oscar awards.

I appreciate that comment because he’s absolutely right – it is show business. A game does have to be played. But why can’t we play the fair game? Why can’t we play the right game? If you’re asking, am I willing to put my integrity on the line for Hollywood? No.”

Your thoughts?

    @Beyonce_Stats: Independent Woman by Destiny’s Child is the second biggest girl-group song of all time in the US

      omg her fake “white” accent on GMA is HILARIOUS.
      We all know that fat bish don’t talk like that at home, in that sweet soft voice.

      • iLoveMusic March 2, 2015

        She spoke with class, proper grammar, & home training. Just because she black, it doesn’t mean she has to be ratchet. Low level minds (like yours) are always bringing race, & sexuality into the conversation. This is the reason why the internet is no longer an enjoyable, informative platform for entertainment.

      • Pat March 3, 2015

        What’s a white accent?

  2. Me. I Am… Stephy Aka Queen Elizabeth Taylor March 2, 2015

    Interesting. I’m glad she’s defending herself. But, I think she needs to be quiet now.

      Oh hey StephSteph! I see you’ve paid all my comments dust lately. Someone really knows how to hold a grudge. Keep hoping and praying for flopriah and her elusive vocals #YouGotMeFeelingEmotions #WhyAintNickObsessedWithMe #YouWontAlwaysBeMyBaby #ByeBye

      • TheElusiveLamb March 2, 2015

        Sigh just bc the you found a free Wi-Fi signal while laying down in the hut doesn’t mean you should leave stupid comments. Flop vocals? My dear did you forget you stan for the banana boat girl?

      CTFU!!! I love Monique but you right. She needs to say f*** em just make her comeback. It won’t take long or Much because after all, a lot of us did miss her.

  3. MisdamenorFan March 2, 2015

    Somebody isn’t telling the truth.

    • maurice March 2, 2015

      That would be Missy Elliot telling her two fans she’ll slay when she makes a supposed comeback

      • MisdamenorFan March 2, 2015

        Not today Satan. You gets no energy from me.

      • iLoveMusic March 2, 2015

        Here we go again. Another mentally impaired person, dragging the wrong celebrity. If this post is about Monique (the actor), why would you even mention Missy Elliott (the musician)? How do they compare?…

  4. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 2, 2015

    Why is this overweight höe so pressed, is she being deprived of food? that would explain why this fat bîtch keeps talking

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 2, 2015

  5. #TeamTinashe Stan (New Single “All Hands On Deck” Now On iTunes) March 2, 2015

    I’m glad she’s on a promo trail to clear the air. Every one wanted to know what happened to her after “Precious.” I can’t say who I believe but what I can say is that Lee Daniels seems very creepy.
    But anyways I love my Mo’Nique! 😉

    • Lake Erie March 2, 2015

      Lol! Right! When she was on CNN, that little clip of him was the first time I saw him and yea. I was like “who da f***”? :/

    • maurice March 2, 2015

      When will Tinashe win an Oscar, let alone any award?

  6. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT March 2, 2015

    • Tamartian Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ March 2, 2015

      Not I stan(d) for foolishness arguing with herself! You ok sis?

  7. ~The Arcade~ March 2, 2015

    For some reason I can’t see the video, but I agree that she needs to simmer down a bit. I forgot all about Blackbird, cos she’s constantly talking about this!

    • maurice March 2, 2015

      Only Mariah Carey and Beyonce fans can watch the video!

  8. Lovely rose March 2, 2015

    He produced a film and casted her in a role that gave her an Oscar, regardless she should have thanked him. She is coming across very ungrateful and she needs to shut up

  9. Tamartian Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ March 2, 2015

    Luv her!!! but she’s just tryna get some spotlight for her indie film ;[

    • FutureCIARA March 2, 2015

      Thats what I think too…. Celebs do this all the time.

      • Tamartian Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ March 2, 2015

        yea I know I’m stupid. Not the ci-error fan clinging to my comment because her faves single dropped out the top 100. let me contact Wendy Williams for shade

      • FutureCIARA March 2, 2015


        BWAHAHAHA Not your failed attempt at a dragging match to make you relevant… By muppet.

  10. FutureCIARA March 2, 2015

    Cant tell if this is promo and publicity for their new projects or not, But whatever it is, Its about to get juicy, And T will be spilledT

    Goes to grab Popcorn!

  11. FutureCIARA March 2, 2015

    She needs to take the time to promot her new movie #Blackbird which looks really good, instead of focusing on all this negative energy….. I guess any drama is better than no drama right?

  12. Rancor March 2, 2015

    Lee Daniels is pushing the homosexual agenda in primetime and what makes it worse is that he’s trying to mask it as a “black drama,” playing on the sensitives of the black community’s desire to see itself represented in prime time…when all he’s really doing is playing lapdog to the perverted gays. Shame on him. Glad Mo’ didn’t thank him.

    • King March 2, 2015

      “Homosexual agenda” lmao. Shut up.

  13. Rated R March 2, 2015

    Wow I was right , You can only spin a story so much Lee Daniels before it comes back to bite you and people actually read through what you’re actually saying and how you really feel , His remarks with “she didn’t thank the studio and the producers” is just him saying She Didn’t thank me and for that I’m going to pretend like we’re friends, Let her know “Hey, You’re being blackballed by Hollywood” , offer her roles but simply secretly take them back – act as if they were never hers and blackball her myself. While at the end of the day still claim she is talented and a great friend. Lee Sit

  14. DD1G March 2, 2015

    Not surprised. Lee comes off as very insincere and full of himself. I hope Mo’Nique can get n the good graces of someone more powerful than him.

  15. TheElusiveLamb March 2, 2015

    I really want to see that movie. It looks good.

  16. Naomi March 2, 2015

    This is getting tedious.

  17. MISHKA March 2, 2015

    A petty queen looking for a stable check against a queen directing the hottest on TV rght now…Mo’Nique, you’re still losing boo.

    Are you not a stand up comedian? Write some material and go on tour, leave this petty sh!t alone, we are not here for it.

  18. alisha March 3, 2015

    She mad cause she still fat and couldn’t keep her weight off look how bad she talked about skinny ppl but she says she find being bigger also another production that Monique has divas ways besides lee Daniels too so it’s like 50/ 50 on both sides I do like her but its only making him hotter promote and not having no classy rants I ok miss her talk show

  19. R March 3, 2015

    Mo’Nique has always seemed really obnoxious and sanctimonious.

    I’d say “bye” Mo’Nique but you already left.
