Mo’Nique ‘Apologizes’ To Tyler Perry and Oprah
Mo’Nique issued an “apology” to Tyler Perry and Oprah after calling them out on the Club Shay Shay show. In an interview with Shannon Sharpe last week, she didn’t hold her tongue on how Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey have allegedly treated her over the years and how it affected her career.
Mo’Nique accused Perry and Oprah of blackballing her in Hollywood and says that she has audio proof of the Diary of a Mad Black Woman star allegedly admitting to it. Sharpe seemingly acknowledges that it’s something he has heard off-camera. Perry has not spoken out about the alleged audio. As for Oprah, she says the media mogul has “stolen” at least two film roles from her over the years.
The comedian is now on tour with Katt Williams — who also had an explosive episode on Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay — where she “apologized” for what she said to Perry and Oprah.
“I wanna apologize for telling y’all to suck my d—,” she said on stage in Connecticut Sunday (Feb. 11). “Because I forgot to tell y’all to lick the nuts that came with it.”
Mo’Nique Calls Out Tiffany Haddish
During her interview with Sharpe, Mo’Nique also blasted actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish.
“If you had a husband like mine, you may not have two DUI’s,” Mo’Nique said, referencing Haddish’s recent legal mishap. “If you had a husband like mine, you may not be caught up in what looks like you could’ve been grooming a child.”
Sharpe responded: “She don’t even have a husband, let alone yours.”
Mo’Nique’s criticism of the actress follows comments Haddish made about her during her 2018 GQ interview.
“My business run different than her business. I don’t live her life. I don’t have that husband of hers,” Haddish said to the publication at the time.
Haddish was referencing Mo’Nique slamming Netflix for allegedly lowballing her with a $500,000 offer for a comedy special back in 2017. Netflix’s alleged offer to Mo’Nique failed in comparison to other comedians. Chris Rock reportedly made $40 million for two specials, Dave Chappelle inked a $60 million deal for three specials, and Amy Schumer racked up $11 million for one of hers. After withdrawing the offer, Mo’Nique boycotted the streamer until, in 2023, she closed a deal with Netflix for her comedy special My Name Is Mo’Nique for an undisclosed amount.
