Mo’Nique sheds light on the real Oprah Winfrey

mm

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.

Amanda Seales is Not the One

Published

on

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future.
