Like Katt Williams, Mo'Nique made contentious comments on the “Club Shay Shay” program. Her goals are slightly different.
The comic attacked Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Tiffany Haddish, and Kevin Hart in her Shannon Sharpe-hosted podcast episode that aired today. Mo'Nique has complained about being blacklisted in Hollywood, and she accused Winfrey and Perry of damaging her career during her talk with Shannon. This time, she claimed to have audio proof of Perry confessing to this, and Shannon Sharpe suggested he heard it off-camera.
Despite Mo's repeated assertions, Tyler Perry has denied harming her reputation behind the scenes. The reported tape was not played on “Club Shay Shay”. However, Mo'Nique continued.
She proceeded to attack and accuse Oprah of “overstepping” in numerous ways. She even made fun of Haddish's GQ interview statements by mentioning Tiffany's DUI offenses and legal issues.
Mo’Nique has been campaigning for years, alleging mistreatment by industry figures. She has reconciled with some, but hatred remains with others.
It's amazing that Mo'Nique's complaints stem from a 2009 film she acted in, which she presumably regrets owing of the uproar.
Some social media users were curious about the interview, while others criticized Shannon's interviewing abilities or reacted on podcast quotes:
Mo'Nque wore her finest half-wig
“Meh, I doubt it'll be as explosive as Katt's interview but I have nothing else to watch.”
Oprah is shaded: ‘I saw a gigantic figure, with large limbs, a big head and big feet.’
Why did Tyler Perry request to see Monique without her husband? Very dark.”
Shannon is using Monique to schedule Tyler Perry on his program.
Oh, Shannon is a lousy interviewer. Someone should give him a journalism crash course because he constantly struggles with queries. It's difficult to see. Poorly spoken.”
