Outspoken comedienne Mo’Nique once claimed that after winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2010, her Precious director Lee Daniels had her blacklisted for failing to thank him during her acceptance speech.

Mo hasn’t let go of the grudge, and made sure to vent her frustrations during a Mother’s Day weekend stand-up show at the Apollo theater in Harlem.  She also expanded her targets to additional industry professionals, Oprah and Tyler Perry. Her message to the stars: “Suck my d*ck … if i had one.” Mo claims they, in tandem with Daniels, have had a part in her excommunicated from Tinseltown.

Check out the clip below that Mo’Nique uploaded with the hashtag #GoOff :



Daniels went on record back in 2015 during an interview with Don Lemon on CNN, admitting that Mo’Nique wasn’t completely wrong in her assumption, saying

“During the [Oscar] campaign, she was making unreasonable demands, and I remember thinking ‘This is when reverse racism happens.’ You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studio, and she didn’t understand that. People aren’t going to respond well. I love her, I’ve spoken to her. She’s brilliant, and I love working with brilliant people. Sometimes artists get in their own way — I know I certainly do often, I have my own demons. I think that there were demands that were made on the ‘Precious’ campaign that everyone knows hurt her. I told her that. You’ve gotta play ball. This is not just show — it is show business.”

Based on Mo’Nique’s recent Apollo performance, it doesn’t look like she’s willing to “play ball” anytime soon.


Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
