UAHN UAHNNN WAY MIN: Academy Award Winning Mo’Nique – “BlackBalled” For NOT Kissing Ass @moworldwide LOOK:


blackballed


          It’s been Five years since Mo’Nique won the best supporting actress Academy Award for portraying Mary Lee Johnston in the dramatic film “Precious”. She is considered the first Afrikan American woman to have a late night talk show, on top of her many achievements in television with hit shows like; “The Parkers”, and movies like; “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins”, Mo’Nique is a well deserving, honorable, skilled “creative force to be reckoned with”.

Mo’Nique recently did an interview with the Hollywood Reporter and in it she revealed some very disturbing things about the industry. When asked by the interviewer; “How Has The Oscar Changed Your Life? Has it?” Monique’s answer was shocking;

“……What I understood was that when I won that Oscar, things would change in all the ways you’re saying: It should come with more respect, more choices and more money. It should, and it normally does. Hattie said, ‘After I won that award, it was as if I had done something wrong.’ It was the same with me. I thought, once you won the award, that’s the top prize — and so you’re supposed to be treated as if you got the top prize.

 

I got a phone call from Lee Daniels maybe six or seven months ago. And he said to me, ‘Mo’Nique, you’ve been blackballed.’ And I said, ‘I’ve been blackballed? Why have I been blackballed?’ And he said, ‘Because you didn’t play the game.’ And I said, ‘Well, what game is that?’ And he gave me no response. The next thing he said to me was, ‘Your husband is outbidding you.’ But he never asked me what [salary] we were asking for. You know, my husband [actor and producer Sidney Hicks] and I had to change things so we wouldn’t have to depend on [others]. So we do it independently. We’re very proud of taking the independent route, and we have a movie coming out on April 24 called Blackbird.” READ MORE HERE

 


As an actor, this idea of “playing the game” is often preached to actors in acting class, meetings, and in conversation. We hear it all the time, its who you know, “network”, basically kiss the right asses and you’ll be ok. If you remember Mo’Nique did not monique-240“campaign” when she got the Oscar nomination, they frowned upon her for not showing up at parties and campaigning like many actors do to win. The fact that she still won the award without it, spoke volumes for her talent, but apparently she “didn’t play the game” correctly, and was blackballed.

This is an issue for me because a talented actress whom I believe would never ask for something she is not owed has been treated unfairly, it makes me think as an actor if people are constantly blocking people out from making money, from working and providing for their families, not that Mo’Nique needs money from anyone, but for actors coming up, this is a problem. You cannot be a successful actress like Mo’Nique and be this “difficult” person Hollywood has painted her out to be, I just DON’T BELIEVE IT, but Mo’Nique said it best; “I respect everyone, from the homeless brother and sister on the street to the executive that sits in the highest office named President Barack Obama. I respect everyone — but we over-respect no one.”

This is what Lee Daniels had to say:

“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.”

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS “BLACKBALLED” THEORY IN HOLLYWOOD FAIR OR NAH?

TRUTH: Bobby Brown Asks For Privacy In This Crucial Time For Bobbi Kristina False Reports Broke The Internet LOOK:


bbbk


             This has been an awful time for Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown, and close family and friends. As Bobbi Kristina lays in a hospital, Lord knows how’s she’s doing, we pray for her and her family here at The B.L.A.C.K Media. What is disheartening is the terrible “news” reports that continue to release false information.

I have never in my life seen such a disgusting need to release false news about someones death, and doings. Every blog, and “A-List” “news” outlet have released information that is so extremely false Bobby Browns lawyers had to speak out.

I wasn’t going to blog about Bobbi Kristina as she is going through enough, but I’m so disgusted on how the vultures of the internet have reared their ugly heads in a way that is so ugly, and evil, almost showing excitement for this child’s “possible death”. That is terrible, and NO ONE KNOWS IF ITS ACTUALLY TRUE OR NOT!

People will sell their souls to be the first to break the FALSE news….its sad!

The latest information, which I believe to be true, but I could be wrong too, is that Bobby Brown released the following statement, along with his attorneys:


Bobby Brown states the following:

“We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers.”

Legal Rep For Bobby Brown, Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC states:

“We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended….”

“However the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention.

The desire to be “first” has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.”


The most important thing, weather or not that “released statement” actually came from them or not is that we all need to give them a break. This is not entertaining, this is not entertainment, this is someone in the hospital with very concerned family and friends surrounding them, why would you act without having the truth? Whether you have a statement or not, the least these terrible blogs and “news” outlets can do is release an article praying for the girl and wait till the family comes for with actual information, not slander her name, say she’s dead, say they’ll pull the plug, and worse….I am disappointed in us…

Synopsis:

Sometimes it’s not about changing someone’s mind, but instead, ever so slightly moving their heart. A 12 year old girl little white girl, a middle aged black woman, and a dusty library in a sandy town are the backdrop of this lesson in the form of a Stageplay. Providence Banks is a rambunctious and gregarious child who serves as a role model for her learning disabled mother Bethanne Banks, and a bothersome inconvenience for her stepfather Jon Banks.  Providence is the loud mouthed, opinionated wedge that lives between her folks and Jon Banks makes no bones about it; he’s had it up to here.  So when yet another chiding note comes home from Providence’s teacher as a result of her challenging both children and adults with her verbal menacing, she’s sentenced by Jon Banks to do time in the town library.  If nothing else, he figures it will keep her out of his hair though he doubts she’ll take the time to learn anything.  Maybelle Richards is the janitor in the library and notices Providence has gone from sleeping on stacks of books to actually reading them.  They end up developing a mutual respect for one another and an unlikely love/like relationship is born.  That is until Providence poses a question about the ever so glorious Maya Angelou. Maybelle becomes defensive, determined to prove that Maya belongs to her and her people.  Providence begs to differ and decides to enter a library contest with Maya as her subject, hell bent on teaching HER people about the phenomenal woman. Yours, Ours, & Ms. Angelou presents a simple story about the complicated task of changing minds and hearts, inspiring love where it never lived, and becoming who you were always meant to be.  In Yours, Ours, & Ms. Angelou, you’ll find the spirit of a young girl as it collides with the spirit of a black woman who impacted generations and changed the world.
