Mo’Nique Joins ‘NOH8’ Campaign; Wants Public Chat with Lee Daniels

mo'nique-husband-sidney-hicks-pose-for-noh8*Going to bat for equal rights and her upcoming film “Blackbird,” Mo’Nique has joined the “NOH8” campaign.

The Oscar winner and her husband-manager Sidney Hicks are among the latest celebrities to tape their mouths shut to pose for pictures promoting campaign, which is rooted in marriage, gender and human equality.

The couple released a joint statement to Huff Post regarding the motivation behind standing with the “NOH8” campaign, saying, “Let us as a world, allow others to be what they had no choice in being. We’re a part of the NOH8 campaign because when you say NO to H8, what you’re really saying is YES to Love.”

Mo’Nique’s involvement in the campaign comes amid the upcoming release of her film “Blackbird.” The film, which arrives in theaters April 24 and finds Mo’Nique serving as producer and star, centers around a young singer (Julian Walker) coming to terms with his sexuality in a small Southern Baptist community.

The release of “Blackbird” isn’t the only thing on Mo’Nique’s mind. According to Hello Beautiful, her situation with Lee Daniels still maintains a presence with her.

So much so that Mo’Nique is voicing a desire to sit down with Daniels for a public discussion regarding their issue. The request is the latest development since Mo’Nique claims Daniels told her she  was “blackballed” in Hollywood after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress for her work in “Precious.”

In an interview with Hello Beautiful, Mo’Nique stated that a public sit down would not leave any confusion regarding their “differences.”

“I no longer have Lee’s phone number but would love to have a conversation with my brother, but we would have to do it publicly because the one’s we’ve had privately –when you then speak about them — you don’t tell what the real conversation was,” she told the site. “When a person is saying, I want to do it publicly, does it sound like a person who has something to hide? I don’t bind to the A-list, I don’t bind to the elite. I’m just a regular folk from Baltimore Maryland, who’s living out her dreams. I’m a wife and a mommy and having the time of her life. That can be for the other elite folk, I’m not that.”

So with that in mind, do you think Daniels will grant Mo’Nique’s wish and actually hash everything out publicly or will he find something better to occupy his time?

  1. Baby you don’t have anything to prove, and Lee Daniels ain’t God. Who cares???

    Go to the next gig. Whatever it is… A lot of us still dig you… Stop trying so hard to be understood by people who get off on not understanding anything…

    This stuff isn’t that serious… The people in Hollow-wood will probably never accept a down-to earth person in their cliques… So what?

    Use your talent, and go get that next project…

  2. Lee Daniels seems like a real melodramatic queen. She shouldn’t give his name any more time. I think she’s already explained the whole thing clearly, and her work speaks for itself.

  3. I’m guessing that Mo’Nique and her husband was hard up for cash. That’s why she did this disgusting faggot movie in the first place. So it’s all about milking that cash cow for all its worth.
    The fags recognized their dilemma and decided to take advantage. Noting better than having two straight individuals fronting a gay campaign.

    The way they see it, all publicity is good publicity. And the name Lee Daniels is trending right now.

    But I ain’t mad at you at all girl. Gotta do what you gotta do to pay the rent.

    • The Fags? Oh you must be some lights can read nigga. Light skin ignorant read Nigga.. Oh and dumb. A fag is giving you a platform here to communicate with sensible people. Now, wipe the shit off your niddle weenie and apologize punk ass!!!

  4. Mo’Nique was absolutely fabulous in the movie Precious and very well should have deserved the award, but I have to admit that when she was in my town doing a comedy show, she was very snotty towards her fans, which made me kind of NOT a fan anymore! So I think there is some validity to Mr. Daniels claims about how hard she is to work with. just say’n! So I agree with a lot of other people, MOVE ON!!!

  5. Monique need to just keep it moving and don’t bother with this nonsense campaign because it doesn’t seem genuine and she looks as if she’s selling herself out….

    Lee Daniels strike me as a messy queen and I believe he set Monique up to look like a fool.He is not anyone that Monique need to prove herself to.She need to get a new manager besides her husband.
