Mo’Nique Needs A (Reality) Check

You know what? On some real shit I do like Mo’Nique. I think she’s a funny, talented sistah. I also believe that she has a bit of an over-inflated sense of self-importance in regards to her talent and what’s she’s worth.

No Oprah. No.

Saying that 2017 will live in infamy as “The Year of the Pervs” is an understatement.
