Why Was Mo'Nique BlackBalled?
I wonder why Mo'Nique was banned from Hollywood!
When this happens, you are about to blow all the way up!
It took Lee Daniels to reveal to Mo'Nique that she was banned from Hollywood, even though she proved she was a hell of an actor in “Precious.”
Peep what dude Daniels told her!
But I got a phone call from Lee Daniels...And he said to me, 'Mo'Nique, you've been blackballed.' I said, 'Why?' And he said, 'Because you didn't play the game.' "I said, 'Well, what game is that?'" He gave me no response."
She was supposed to be in the “The Butler” and the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic but both roles went or are going to Oprah Winfrey. Big O eating that plate! She was even offered a role in “Empire.”
The comments ran in The Hollywood Reporter. Lee Daniels also responded with:
"Mo'Nique is a creative force to be reckoned with. Her demands through Precious were not always in line with the campaign. This soured her relationship with the Hollywood community. I consider her a friend. I have and will always think of her for parts that we can collaborate on, however the consensus among the creative teams and powers thus far were to go another way with these roles."
Mo'Nique is far from finished! She just needs to re-adjust who she caters her talents to! These Hollywood haters don’t want the real! I don’t even see what she did that was so bad? She just said that she’s glad that she won based on the performance and not the politics of Hollywood.
And there you have it...THE GAME.
