A little while ago, we reported that Mo’Nique appeared on The View and Whoopi Goldberg lost her temper. She offered school the actress on how she was supposed to promote her latest film.
Now, it looks like these two’s feud spilled off the air as well.
Mo’Nique is now speaking out about how Whoopi’s advice was a direct shade towards her husband and manager, Sidney Hicks.
Mo’Nique appeared in a recent episode of the couple’s podcast and said that Whoopi told her that Hicks had advised her in the wrong way.
She claimed that Whoopi blamed him for her career’s sad state:
‘When we got to her dressing room and when we were sitting down, and this is what she said to me,’ she said, with Hicks sitting beside her.
‘She said, ‘Listen, from the first time I saw you, I loved you. So, I’m going to tell you right now, you’ve got to take some of this responsibility, and the real problem is, Mo’Nique, you’re bring ill-advised, you’re not thinking for yourself, and the real problem is your husband.’
She went on to say that she had to take Whoopi’s hands and tell her that she is misinformed about her husband and she’s making statements about something that she does not know.
‘See, I’ve had the big white manager, the big white agent, I’ve had the big attorney firm, all in Hollywood… I would watch those people cheat me, and they would say to me, ‘We’ll get them the next time, Mo’Nique,’ she stated.
After that, Mo’Nique continued to say that ‘I said the reason why my husband is considered a problem is when we’re in those meetings with those executives, they can’t answer his questions.’ We’ll just have to wait and see where things go from here.
