I tried to give Mo’Nique a chance with this one, but I couldn’t continue to allow my earsdrums to hear the ratchett sounds on my TV. LOL
Okay, let’s be honest here. I love Mo’Nique for many reasons; she is very confident black woman that embraces beauty in aspects. I find her a role model to many full figured women, giving us hope in the Entertainment Industry. But…there is always a but. I do NOT feel that she should’ve been given a talk show. A comedy show maybe, but not a talkshow on BET that can be aired for all of “White America” to see.
For so long we have tried to break away from the stereotypical image of the “blackface” in Hollywood and I feel that she is not helping with it. All the yelling and screaming and loud noises is okay for excitement, but you can’t be sitting at an interview yelling and carrying on, whatever happened to holding a decent conversation? I honestly don’t think she can do that. It’s not about being funny, its about knowing when to control yourself in certain situations like a TALK SHOW.
I don’t know if you noticed but BET has really been following these stereotypical images of black women, you would never see Oprah on BET, Ever. I honestly don’t think BET has enough revenue to house a women like her. But more importantly, I have been shaking my head all week at Mo’Nique, just hoping that she will turn her act around or at least turn that microphone down so she doesnt blow America away.
