Mo’Nique sheds light on the real Oprah Winfrey

Recently we reported the Comedy Hype interview with Mo’Nique were she shared her thoughts about Steve Harvey losing his show on NBC. Well, the YouTube channel just dropped their second clip and I must warn you, it is intense! The conversation of being black balled is still on the table; however, the focus has been shifted from Harvey to billionaire, business mogul Oprah Winfrey.

For a while now, the feud between these charismatic women has been simmering, but Mo’Nique bravely shared a lot of behind the scenes moments that we were not privy to in order for us to see the big picture. According to the comedian, the issue started when Winfrey invited Mo’Nique’s problematic family on the show to seemingly exploit her. Mo also shares that Winfrey reached out to see if she’s okay with the decision of bringing her brother – who molested Mo’Nique as a child- on set, but never mentioned anything about her mother. For what almost was a moment of respect, quickly turned into a moment of embarrassment.

Mo’Nique goes into detail about how she watched her family scam, ridicule, and demean her on national television and how this truly hurt her as a person. Regardless, she still kept quiet and cordial with Winfrey…that is, until she ran into her at Alfre Woodard’s Oscar Party.

In the midst of congratulating the current year’s Oscar nominee, Mo’Nique abruptly confronts Oprah Winfrey about her decision to blindside and deceive her with her family’s interview.

“Until that woman says, “Let me apologize to you publicly. It’ll be til the day I leave this Earth. Because what you did was malicious and it was intentional, and it was ugly.”

No matter what highs and lows Mo’Nique had to endure, she sternly stated that she cannot be called a liar. She then went to name a few other prominent celebs that were present for the conversation. Regina King, Angela Bassett, Lynn Whitfield, Kerry Washington. After approaching Winfrey for answers, Mo’Nique describes her response as cowardly.

“If you think, I did something wrong. I want to apologize.”

Mo’Nique really puts a frog in our throats when she reminisces about being inspired and meeting Oprah as a little girl. She expressed that Oprah advised her on what it takes to be successful and that she must work hard. We then fast forward to Mo’Nique returning to promote, “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins”, and Oprah’s allegedly not having that same energy. Mo reveals that she reminded Oprah of that memory and her response was, “Oh I say that to everybody”. Ouch.

The video ends with Mo’Nique sending a warning to the community that she knows the “real” Oprah behind closed doors and cameras. She believes that Winfrey will not publicly discuss this matter because “within minutes the community will know the real you”. She asserts that Oprah’s grown accustomed with asking the questions, but not with being questioned herself.

Do you all think Oprah’s hands are dirty or would she be all for having a talk with Mo’Nique? I don’t know about y’all, but Jada Pinkett-Smith is somewhere setting a Red Table Talk date as we speak lol.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child

Published

on

Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”

The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.

While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many. 

Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.

When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison

Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.

The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.

Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.

“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
