Mo’Nique has been feuding with everyone in Hollywood from Whoopi Goldberg to Oprah Winfrey to Steve Harvey. She appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show” on Wednesday and the conversation got intense with neither of them backing down.
The interview started with Mo’ expressing her disappointment in people saying she was difficult and said directly to Harvey: “This is my brother, and when I heard you go on the air and you said ‘My sister done burned too many bridges and there’s nothing I can do for her now.’ Steve, do you know how hurt I was?”
Harvey responded with, “But see now Mo, let me give you this, because you and I had this conversation, I thought you went about it wrong. I thought you had done yourself a disservice by the way you went about it.”
He also said her Netfilx boycott had no point of action and it was rich people problems. In addition, he said she went too far when she told Oprah, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels to “suck my dick.”
The interview got even more heated when Mo’Nique said she was about integrity.
Harvey responded with, “If I crumble, my children crumble, my grandchildren crumble. I can not for the sake of my integrity, stand up here, and let everybody that’s counting on me, crumble, so that I can make a statement. There are ways to win the war in a different way.”
It’s good to see these two try to hash it out but who knows if anything was resolved? Most recently, Mo said about Whoopi Goldberg during her interview with Vulture, “When you have a woman saying, ‘I could have schooled you,’ someone would say, ‘What was the schooling going to be?’ When I look at this woman you say is our icon and our legend — she is.”
She continued, “But, how many things has Whoopi Goldberg executive produced? Whoopi Goldberg has always been the help, and I say that humbly. So what is it that you’re going to school me on? I’ve been doing it for almost 30 years.”
Clearly, Mo’Nique is going to keep doing her.
