    I can’t say I’m sad the show if going to be off the air.  I found Monique to be sychophantic and mammyish.  She lavished praise on people who didn’t deserve it.  I remember how disgusted I was when she had Lil’ Wayne on the program and she lauded him as a positive black role model.  I nearly spit out my drink.  Wayne has four baby mamas, a felony conviction, a drug problem, an an acute hatred of black women, but Mo’Nique acted like he was the second coming of MLK or Malcolm X.  She completely overstates people’s accomplishments in an effort to ingratiate herself with them (and the audience too, I suppose).  Good riddance, I say.

      I completely agree. This is no loss for black people.  Mainstream media loves to parade these type of black minstrel on TV and movies. This untalented woman won a Oscar for one of the most negative portrayals of a black woman and black people we have seen since Birth of a Nation. Racist Hollywood shuffles these type of Negros in the spotlight long enough to perpetuate the worst stereotypes and rewards them for it. Good riddance to this show and her.

        It’s people like you who also wanted Arsenio off and Oprah off also, when a black person does something for the good there is always haters in the hood. Why can’t we as a people celebrate our blackness instead of trying to bring each other down. We always say the white man is putting us down or holding us back but it is Just Us (justice)

          Further more this role was created to show that this kind of living environment happens each and every day. Who would you have rather played the part a white actress who doesn’t know or ever experienced this type of behavior? Then you really would have been hollering foul play. I am proud that a black actress won that award take a look around we don’t have that many.

      Yeah you need a break just like X below, maybe LIl Wayne isn’t the proto type black role model, but the reason Monique lavished praise on him is that coming where he came from he could have been out robbing banks or shooting people and robbing them. But instead he found a way to make money in a legitimate way and doing some good for the people in his community. He didn’t run to LA or New York and buy a mansion but decided to stay in his own backyard. Although he hasn’t made some of the best decision in his life he still manage to come up out of a bad situation, and this is what Monique saw in him. Remember there has been only one perfect man to walk this Earth we all fall short in some way or another. Even You.

        I’m astounded by your logic.  You are saying that Lil’ Wayne deserves to be praised because he could have been robbing banks and shooting people but he chose the lesser evils of impregnating black women with reckless abandon, developing a drug problem, and getting a gun charge?  I earnestly implore you to raise your standards.

    Man, I never watched the show except when she had Eric Benet on there (wink).  I suppose I wasn’t missing much.

    I personally Love MoNique, I don’t care for Lil Wayne, but he does have a couple of good songs. I think people hating on her cause she’s comfortable and knows that she doesn’t have be a size 2, to be Beautiful.
    I think they jealous cause she’s comfortable with herself. I Love her performance in Phat Girlz too.

    Let’s start to boycott this network.  Enough is enough!  It is not representing us with good quality programs, and it’s time to do something about it.
