Foxy Brown Interview On “The Monique Show” (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by T. Adeyemi on May 13, 2010

Let me find out Mo’Nique is becoming the late-night Oprah with all these emotional scenes. She still has a way to go before she can think about even mentioning Oprah with her show, but this was a rather dope piece. The Academy Award winner recently had Foxy Brown on her show, joined by the original Foxy Brown, the timeless beautiful Pam Grier

Mo’Nique also gave a very specific and moving statement when she said, “I celebrate this award with all of the Precious’s, with all of the Mary’s. I celebrate this award with everyone that has ever been touched. It’s now time to tell, and it’s okay.” By far, Mo’Nique’s most poignant moment of her acceptance speech.
