Mo'Nique defends telling Oprah and Lee Daniels to 'suck her d***'

Mo'Nique called out Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry during a recent stand-up set for blackballing her from show business following her Oscar winning performance in "Precious". I feel this is unfortunate because we love Lee Daniels and what he's doing, we love Tyler Perry, we love Oprah Winfrey, and if there is a way for us to settle this...she's an awesome actress and an incredible comic - so somehow we have to settle this together...and the hard part about this is other people make demands and they still get the work. No, baby, I wasn't blackballed.

"You're in the Apollo [Theater], so you gotta keep it real in the Apollo and she used a lot of street terms to voice what I consider her frustrations", Underwood says of Mo'Nique on "The Talk" Monday, May 15. Y'all can suck my d**k if I had one'. "I was white-balled by some black [expletive] who have no balls", the actress said onstage at the Apollo Theater over the weekend. Everything I say comes from my heart.

Mo made it clear she believes Oprah was complicit in the negative campaign against her, telling folks that she is hard to work with. Check out the rant and more in the latest Comedy Hype News above.

In a 2015 interview, she first brought up being "blackballed" by the trio, saying that she had spoken to Daniels and he would not elaborate on what Mo'Nique did or did not do to be blackballed.


She added, "I was offered the role in "The Butler" that Oprah Winfrey played". "I was also approached by Empire to be on Empire".

Since Precious, Mo'Nique has starred in Almost Christmas, Blackbird, Steppin: The Movie, Interwoven and Bessie.

The director said, "She's brilliant, and I like working with brilliant people..." She was making unreasonable demands, and she wasn't thinking - this was when reverse racism was happening, I think. "I told her, 'You have to thank the producers of the film, you have to thank the studios.' And I think she didn't understand that, and I said, 'People aren't going to respond well if you don't'". I have and will always think of her for parts that we can collaborate on.
