During her rant she named names like Oprah, Tyler Perry, and Lee Daniels.
Fellow comedian and co-host of the “The Talk,” Sheryl Underwood says she is concerned about her friend ….
“Mo’Nique gave me one of my first jobs…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 amazing actress and an amazing 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.
