Mo’Nique sets the record straight again…
It’s almost like bloggers, news sites, and their readers don’t even take the time out to actually watch, and listen, let a lone read what the actual truth is…It makes me question…do we as a people even care about the truth anymore?
Today Sherri Shepherd asked friend and fellow actress Mo’Nique if she’d actually said that she’d give her husband a “hall pass” to cheat. Being a veteran Tv Show host, Sherri understands what it means to go to the source to get the truth. Mo’Nique responded hastily saying;
This is not the first time Mo’Nique has been in the news for rumors saying she and husband Sidney Hicks have an ‘open marriage’. Rumors she defended, but no one listened. Mo’Nique’s point of view on being open and honest, is one most should have in every relationship, love, sex, friendships, etc. Be open and be honest, if someone you love cheats on you, wouldn’t you rather know? I would…
Mo’Nique recently took to Periscope and Us Weekly transcribed her thoughts on “Free Passes To Cheat”
“When I say I’m in an open marriage, it was not my husband’s idea,” Mo’Nique said in the live-streamed clip, which was shot in her car. “Originally it was my idea because at the time when Sid and I got together 10 years ago — now keep in mind this was my best friend since I was 14 — but when we first got together I was still stuck in being famous and a celebrity and being a star, and I felt like I could have whatever I want. So I was still in an insecure place of, ‘I can have that, I can have that, I can have that.’ And because I was dealing with my best friend, my best friend said, ‘If that’s what you think you need, as your best friend, I don’t want to stand in the way of it.’”
“It makes me laugh when people put it all off on my husband as if it was something he was doing,” she said. “It was my idea. That’s how I felt back then… but what I didn’t want to do with my best friend was to be sneaking or cheating, so we had open and honest dialogue, which unfortunately some of us are so afraid to have.”
She went on to further clarify her comments about a “pass” to cheat, saying, “We don’t give each other passes to cheat, because when you cheat, you lie, when you lie, you steal.”
After receiving widespread criticism from several fellow celebs including Sheryl Underwood on The Talk, Mo’Nique said, “I’d like to ask those people who are so up in arms about it, what kind of relationship do you have? And when you’re focused on yours, you don’t have enough time to be focused on anyone else’s.”
The stand-up comic also revealed that she and her husband have a radio show called Mo’Nique and Sidney’s Open Relationship premiering on New Year’s Day where they can talk about the secrets to the success of their marriage.
“Open means we’re open-minded to the world,” she clarified. “That’s what we’re open to. We are open to being honest to each other all the way through.”
Below are the real excerpts from the interview she recently did with TRUE EXCLUSIVES. Other bloggers promoted Mo’Nique saying she gives her husband the pass to cheat when Mo’Nique was simply answering a question that was asked to her about the thoughts of secrets to a long lasting relationship and how she felt about a ‘free pass to cheat’…
“The person that you stood up and you said ‘for better, for worse, sickness and in health, richer or poorer’ you took those vows in front of the universe. If you don’t live by them, then maybe you shouldn’t have taken them. And when you say ‘a pass to cheat’… see when you’re with your best friend and you say to your best friend ‘I’m having these feelings about this person, sexually and I wanna share it with you’.. when you’re best friends, you can have those open and honest conversations. Often times people cheat because of something they’re not getting. But when you have open and honest dialogue and you say we’re just human beings and all these people on the face of the earth, do you think my eyes won’t ever say ‘he’s fine’ or ‘she’s attractive’. Now if you wanna go further with it, let’s be honest enough to have those conversations. What is it about that person that you find that you wanna sleep with? Because they may give you something that I’m simply not willing to do. And if that’s the case, how can I be mad? Because I’m not gon’ do it. Should I deprive you of not having it? That’s when the relationship is real real. FULL INTERVIEW HERE
