Mo’Nique Slams Sherri Shepherd, Kym Whitley Over ‘Backhanded Compliment’



Mo’Nique isn’t too happy with fellow comediennes Sherri Shepherd and Kym Whitley.

In case you missed it, Shepherd and Whitley spoke about the Oscar winner during an episode of their podcast “Two Funny Mama’s.” During the episode, the comedians praised Mo’Nique for her performance in the BET film The Reading directed by Lee Daniels.

“Let me tell ya’ll something, go watch….This is why I hate that Mo’Nique got blackballed by Hollywood,” said Shepherd.

“Mo’Nique won the Oscar for Precious for a reason…People underestimate comics. She’s really really good – she’s a great actress. Now personality wise, she’s always getting in trouble, always. If it’s not with another comic, D.L. Hughley…it’s somebody.”

You recall Mo made headlines for calling out fellow comic D.L. Hughley – who allegedly used his pull to replace her as the headliner of a show where they both were performing. Mo’Nique also butted heads with Steve Harvey last year, Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey and director Lee Daniels, who she has since reconciled with

Unfortunately Mo’Nique didn’t take too kindly with the ladies praising her while also mentioning she’d been blacklisted in the film and TV industry.

She took to Instagram to admonish them for their “backhanded compliment.”

“Hello @sherrieshepherd and @kymwhitley first thank you for your compliments regarding my talents and performance in “The Reading”, she wrote.  “I couldn’t help but notice though, that you two said, because of my personality I’m always “getting in trouble”.”

“You then attempted to show a connection between my personality and me being blackballed, along with the fallout I had with Brother DL Hughley. In addition, you two within the same breath mentioned how we as comics are “underestimated”… My personality is of such where I have to speak up and out against injustices, so we can stop being as you both said, “underrated. And if you notice I haven’t ever started a conversation about you two that involved any negativity in any way in all of the years I’ve known you two.”

“Anytime the team of you two sisters would like to speak with the team of my husband and I, we welcome it. Thank you two again for the compliments, though backhanded, and please know regardless, I still love you both to life, “sisters”! I LOVE US 4REAL!”
