Oprah Winfrey has decided to answer Mo’Nique who has claimed on numerous occasions that she is a fake.
Mo’Nique has bashed the talk show host and reporter over the years and accused her of teaming up with Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry to blackball in Hollywood.
However, the truth of the matter, the media mogul and the Oscar-winning actress started beefing almost a decade ago after a disastrous appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show around 2010.
Oprah was asked about the fight while promoting A Wrinkle in Time and she replied by: “You cannot meet negative energy where it is. You have to rise above it. You have to transcend it. You have to be the light. It only takes a little bit of light to banish the darkness…so I would never stoop to try to meet somebody where they are negatively. Don’t care who they are.”
Global Grind Interview: @Oprah speaks out about the negative comments that she’s been receiving and why she doesn’t entertain negative energy with a response. A MUST SEE.

Mo’Nique hit back with: “My Love. Fake gold shines too but it does not change the fact that it will turn your neck green. Oprah you keep shinning.”
Fans have a lot to say about the drama.
One of them said: “This goes back when Monique went on her show and revealed she was molested by her brother, she cried on Oprah’s shoulder and everything. Then for views, Oprah invited Monique family(including the brother and mother who didn’t believe her) on the show without telling Monique. Monique was angry! It’s childish at this point. Support whomever. However, you choose. But take note of THIS fun fact…none responses & simply not dealing with a person is better than any revenge, response or debate. Ish will drive a person slap crazy!who looks like they bout to lose it in this equation.”
Another commenter stated: “I dig her cause but calling ya ppl out over social media -yes @cthagod u too- is not the way to go. We need to brainstorm new ideas to reach one another without tearing us down. There’s been too much of that. It’s soooo annoying Oprah is still human and can still be mean and cut deep but because she’s worth a billion it’s ok…if Oprah were white everybody would be on Monique side.”
Most commenters say it might be time for Mo’Nique to move on.
