Mo'Nique Enters The Color Purple

Mo’Nique Enters The Color Purple Chat And Calls Out Oprah, Saying The Producer “Was Caught” Allowing Mistreatment On Set. Taraji P. Henson’s The Color Purple revelations regarding set conditions have sparked debate. Mo’Nique joined the conversation to criticize Oprah despite her long feud with the media mogul.

Fans and industry insiders alike raised fingers at various persons for the hit film’s subpar lodgings for its actors. Some criticize day-to-day producers and production managers. Others accused Warner Bros. of shortchanging the black cast members.

In an exclusive interview, Mo’Nique claims that her collaborator-turned-enemy, Oprah Winfrey, is ultimately responsible. She commented on Taraji’s remarks on shooting The Color Purple and how the business consistently mistreats Black women.

As previously reported, the actors joined Oprah in shutting down suspicions regarding the mogul’s role in the poor circumstances. On the Golden Globes red carpet, Oprah addressed reports of a conflict forming.

“Taraji will tell you herself that I’ve been the greatest champion of this film,” said Oprah to Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight.

“Promoting not just the behind-the-scenes projection, but also everything everyone required. So, if I heard that someone required something, I wasn’t in control of the budget because that’s how the studio structure works at Warner Brothers.”

Oprah went on to clarify that she fulfilled her responsibilities as an executive producer. She claimed she saved the day when the actors raised issues on set.

“Whenever I heard about an issue or a problem, whether with a vehicle or their meals, I would step in and do all I could to make things right. And I think she would even attest to it and confirm that it is accurate,” she said.

However, Mo’Nique didn’t buy it. She stated that Oprah’s ability to settle these difficulties personally demonstrated that she needed to be standing on business from the beginning.

“Everything was, ‘Didn’t I advocate for you?’ I was like, “Stop it.” “You didn’t stand up for those Black women, for our sisters,” Mo’Nique shot back.

“What [she] did was say, ‘We can treat them as we always do, who’s going to check me, boo?'” I’m Oprah Winfrey. You knew everything should have been done when you arrived…Now, when you hear our lovely females say, ‘yes, but it was repaired,’ it’s as if we’re exacerbating the problem.”

The Oscar winner pointed out that someone who understands the “system works,” such as Oprah, would not put her name on a production with Taraji’s objections. The Shug Avery actress complained about needing more trailers, food, and transportation to convey the group to the site safely.

“So, when Oprah Winfrey sits at the helm, Taraji P. Henson says, ‘It’s an honor that we were hand-picked for this film.’ “Well, if they were hand-picked for that film, those women should have been taken care of from the start,” Mo’Nique said.

Her husband and long-time manager, Sidney Hicks, said, “What Oprah fixed should have already been prepared when they arrived.” You shouldn’t have to repair it; it should have been done already.”

“Oprah got caught. That’s what happened,” Mo’Nique stated, reflecting on her decades-long criticism.

Mo’Nique says the world embraced Taraji differently, but their message remains the same: “We Don’t Want To Hear The Message Though It Might Be True.”

Taraji’s remarks regarding disparities in salary and opportunity after a lengthy, highly acclaimed career struck many as familiar. Mo’Nique accused Oprah, Precious director Lee Daniels, and Tyler Perry of “blackballing” her after voicing similar views. However, the comedian claims that the public discovery is better late than never.

“People are catching up to what it is. If the messenger does not look what we expect, we do not want to receive the message, even if it is accurate,” Mo’Nique said.

Taraji claimed her compensation remained unchanged despite receiving Oscar nominations and appearing in Oscar-winning films. Mo’Nique also said she had to start again after receiving the coveted prize.

Mo’Nique said that she reached out to Taraji personally online to assist. It “pained” the outspoken diva to witness a “beautiful soul” like Taraji suffering as she has for years.

Vivica A. Fox seemed to dismiss Taraji’s predicament for Black actors, claiming she can’t connect.

“I am quite glad I did not have that experience. “I love my girls for looking out for one another, but I’m fine,” Vivica told TMZ.

Many questioned how Vivica could be so excellent with even less regularity, quality, and, most likely, money as the veteran continued to labor. Mo’Nique saw the problematic statement affectionately because she recognized the “fear” that motivated it.

“Remember when I came out and said, ‘This is not right?'” Fear is genuine. She responded, ‘I don’t want to be beat.'”

“We don’t begrudge individuals for their fear, but the true fear should be what’s going to happen to us in the long run if I don’t speak up,” he said.

Mo’Nique said that individuals are more open to more than just a particular message. Like many assertive Black women, she believes people are more concerned with policing her tone and delivery than with what she has to say.

“Humbly, our community was more willing to tolerate a damaged Black lady. “And we saw Taraji broken, bent over, and crying,” she said.

“It is difficult for our society to accept a Black lady with a strong Black male at her side declaring that this behavior is wrong.
