Mo’Nique and her man, Sidney Hicks, have been talking smack about Hollywood in recent months, including alleged secrets of the entertainment capital of the United States. In their most recent statement, the couple claims that Shonda Rhimes and Isaiah Washington were blackballed from the industry for racial reasons.
The couple went on their respective social media accounts to reveal an email which they came upon, information which supposedly proves that a lawyer for ABC sought out to ruin the reputation of Isaiah Washington.
As it was previously reported, Isaiah lost his job on the television show due to homophobic comments made towards his fellow castmate, T.R. Knight. Washington, during a confrontation with Knight, supposedly called him a “f*ggot.”
Although the public forgot about the altercation shortly after it happened, during the 2007 Golden Globes, the controversy reared its ugly head again when Washington, on the red carpet, said an awkward comment about gay people. The actor said, “I love gay. I want to be gay. Please let me be gay.”

However, Isaiah vehemently denied all wrongdoing in an interview with Larry King on CNN. According to the email, as obtained by Mo’Nique and Sidney, Washington was “thrown under the bus” for the sake of another person.
Because of “incorrect” information, Washington supposedly lost his job due to “misconceptions” regarding his employment history. In the past, Mo’Nique stated that she had also been banned from the industry due to racially charged reasons.
As you may know, Mo’Nique worked with Washington in the past, including in the picture, Blackbird. Hicks read the letter which states that an employee lied about Washington’s character and reputation to Shonda Rhimes, who used to be Washington’s boss.
The stream provided by the couple continues for more than an hour. Check out the original post above.
