Straight No Chaser: Is Mo’Nique Tripping?

When actress/comedienne Mo’Nique recently made public claims she was supposed to play “Cookie” on the hit TV series, “Empire,” was I the only one who thought she might be on drugs?

I really don’t know what the feud between she and Director Lee Daniels has been all about, but I am stuck on the fact that she really wants us to believe she could have been close to delivering the performance, or the look, that Taraji P. Henson has given us. Come on Mo’Nique, I am not a hater, but the only part I could imagine you being offered is the one as Lucious’ secretary. Did Mo’Nique misinterpret the script she allegedly had been given by Lee Daniels? Or, has this all just been wishful thinking on her part? Mo’Nique claims Mr. Daniels is the one who has had a problem with her, because she did not mention his name when she received her Oscar. Well, if there has been any truth to that, why should the man who fed you continue to feed you, when you had the opportunity to publicly THANK him, and chose not to, in your arrogance?
