According to reports, Mo’Nique and Harvey had a heated exchange over her comments towards Whoopi Goldberg. As we previously reported, Mo basically called Goldberg the maid of Hollywoodland and Harvey allegedly took offense to that.
But on the Feb. 6 edition of “Mo’Nique & Sidney’s Open Relationship” podcast, Mo addressed the controversy and said she and Steve had a “very real and honest conversation” which probably took some people “off guard” because “they were seeing a brother and sister really talk,” per Atlanta Black Star.
The Jasmine Brand previously cited a source who claimed Mo’Nique and Steve’s conversation got so tense that “She threatened to hit Steve in the face. He told her [if] she hit him, her husband would have to come out and square off.”
But on Wednesday, Mo’ explained why folks shouldn’t believe the hype.
“My brother got to talkin’ up on me, I got to talkin’ up on him back,” the actress explains, noting she’s always lovingly threatened to push, kick or shove him. “He said, ‘Mo, I ain’t gon’ sit here and argue with you.’ I said, ‘We not arguing, we are brother and sister talking and Mommy and Daddy just happen not to be here and you keep talkin’.
“And I did not tell that man I was going to slap him,” she added. “I said, ‘I’m going to punch you in your mouth!’ I ain’t no slap, b—, I’m a punch! … That is how me and Steve Harvey has always gotten down. Always.”
Mo’Nique said she found the reports about her husband and Steve nearly coming to blows quite hilarious.
“It got so big and so crazy that when me and Steve talked, we both bust out laughing,” she said. “He said, ‘Mo, they got you slapping me all in my face, and what they don’t know about you, Mo, you’ll bang a n—a, you ain’t slappin’!’”
