On second thought, maybe she’s looking to be loved by anyone and doesn’t care where it comes from — even if its from conservatives who only “like” her out of convenience. That’s the only explanation I have for her decision to cape for Roseanne Barr, who said Valerie Jarrett looks like the “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes had a baby”. Mo’Nique’s reason for offering support to Roseanne boils down to her appearing on The Mo’Nique Show (her short-lived late night show on BET) when many major black stars supposedly declined because the show was “too black.” She says Roseanne made a mistake and that she won’t put her on “the racist list.”
When it comes to bigotry, I don’t leave much room for error, but if we were to play along with the mistake line, how does Mo’Nique explain this bullshit photoshoot where Roseanne is dressed as Hitler?
She also says that her all-knowing husband, Sidney Hicks, says you know who your friends are during hard times, which is why she is going up for Roseanne. My first question would be: Did Roseanne ride for you all these years when you could barely find work in Hollwood? I’m gonna take a wild guess and say the answer is no.
Mo’Nique is full of shit. She’s siding with Roseanne because misery loves company and who better to align with than someone who’s on the Hollywood shitlist you’ve resided on for almost a decade now. I also can’t help but think this is a weird case of the balance theory, where the enemies of your enemies become your “friends”; Valerie Jarrett is a longtime friend of the Obamas, which means she’s probably friends with Oprah, and we all know how Mo’Nique feels about Oprah.
I have spent many years defending Mo’Nique to friends and family because I do think she has been treated horribly by the industry. However, I’m looking goofier by the day because she keeps putting her foot in her mouth. What am I gonna do now, Mo’Nique? Hmm? Since you got your degree and know every fucking thing. Watch Mo’Nique make an ass of herself below.
