As you know the book PUSH has been turned into a Motion picture called Precious. I mention this in a previous post. Anyway Monique plays the abusive mother in the film and she is apparently getting OSCAR buzz to boot.
Ofcourse in old Monique fashion she would rather act like the Fat Bitch that she is turning out to be:
from a New York Times source
“Mo’Nique said she signed on to do this film for a small amount of money. She said she didn’t care about ‘no Oscar’ – all that mattered was ‘those Benjamins!’ Because Oprah and Tyler Perry are backing the film, she feels as though there should be a budget to pay for her promotional duties.”
“When people say, ‘You care more about money than winning an Oscar,’ well, what does an Oscar mean? An Oscar means more work when you win it, and that means more money! I couldn’t eat that Oscar. Everybody needs money, baby. That’s how we survive, right?“
Now Mariah Carey has plenty money and she is promoting the movie for free. Carey played the social worker. Anyway Monique thinks that she should get $100,000 appearance fee to promote a movie that She is in. You know this is the reason why they only use the same black actresses all the time. Does this bitch think that she is that good to be getting that kind of dough up front.
You see she is never at the Promos for the movie because the promoters told her to go fuck herself as they should. Here are pics from the New York film Fest Premier… Folks lookin a little questionable but ConGrats!
