Comedian turned actress, Monique, is shrinking y’all. This week, she stopped by Hot 97, dishing about her weight loss, clarifying what she meant by having an ‘open relationship’ with her husband of seven years, along with how she feels about her late night talk show on BET.

Peep a few excerpts:

On why she admires Charles Ramsey:

Because I admire that brother and I really appreciate what he did. And you know you hear the jokes and I understand..No, he don’t have no teeth. It’s a lot goin’ on, but Charles when we come to Cleveland, you have tickets to the show. I admire that brother. That took a lot of courage. Because normally we mind our business, normally folks don’t get involved. And he was so honest, baby. That brother saved lives.

On her weight lost:

I tweet every morning my workouts because I wanted women to see, (especially us big women) you don’t have to let them cut and suck it out. You don’t hafta let them staple you up, you don’t hafta let them give you a pill. If you just put the work in baby, I promise you, it comes off. Now, I’m three years in….The weight right now….two weeks ago it was 218. My goal is between 190 and 200. When I watch ‘The Parkers’ and I watch the reruns, I know I was tipping about, close to 300. I am thee best Monique I’ve ever been in my life. I feel amazing.

The last time she was at her current weight:

Never. Never. In my mind, things never got sideways until someone brought it to my attention, which is my husband. When I had to step back and look at the damage I was doing to myself, made me say ‘Sis, you got these babies’.

On what food she enjoyed eating, pre-diet:

Buffalo wings, Doritios dipped in blue cheese at the same damn time. You were eating whatever you wanted. There were junkies in my family and there still are junkies in my family. And I use to judge them. I was a food junkie.

Why her show on BET ended:

Let me say this about the experience, it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. We wanted folk to go to bed and feel good. Those two years were amazing. I wish I could give you the answer. I honestly don’t know what happened with the Monique Show. You should maybe ask Ms. Debra Lee because I don’t wanna assume. I can’t give you an swer to that. But what I will say to the people, we thank you. It was a show for our community, baby. It was so diverse; it was for everybody.

If she’d consider doing another talk show:

I had a great time doing it and who knows what the universe is doing.

What she meant years ago, when she said that she and her husband had an open relationship:

Let me define this really quick. See, that happened nothing to do with my husband. When I did that interview, I didn’t realize the king that I had. I was just being old Monique. Listen, the road is what it is. It goes for men and women. I felt like well this is just how it is. People automatically went to my husband. It had nothing to do with that. It actually backfired. I thought I was saying to women you can enjoy your cake and eat it too. It backfired. Now that I understand what I have, baby listen, there’s not another man on the face of this earth that can compare to mine. In my humble opinion. That’s just for me. When you really take the energy and pay attention to your relationship….and love him in a way that your mama didn’t teach you how to love a man, don’t neither one of y’all wanna go nowhere. Treat ’em like a King if you wanna be treated like a Queen–it works.

Further defining what an ‘open relationship’ means to her:

We are open and we’re open because we’re honest. When I said an open relationship people automatically thought sex,sex,sex. An open relationship means to us, there are no secrets.There’s nothing that my husband doesn’t know about me and there nothing I don’t know about him. Some people are laying with strangers. When it’s open, y’all so honest. Sisters if you got a good one baby honor him. It’s nothing wrong with being submissive. It’s nothing wrong with loving him, all of it. We treat each other good right now in life, the best we can and then that way when you’re loving good, everything around you is good.

    I am proud of her weight loss and this place she is in. But there is no way you can share your spouse or allow yourself to be shared within a marriage and there not be some serious consequences. X amount of years from now she’ll be saying how she had such a great body, great health but her mindset or emotions was all jacked up. God bless you Monique. Good luck with that.

        Monique clearly is backtracking. I remember when she first said this crap. She and Sid were best friends and she was married to someone else and he was in a relationship with someone else. She was all over the place talking about how they got together because they were so close and was practically begging him to be with her. When she finally got him, she let him “cheat openly”. That was nothing to her because she tried for years to get that man but he did not want her. She is full of sh*t. Not some of the time but all the time. Now she got the gastric bypass and is lying talking about she lost it naturally. GTFOH with that! We see the bobble head look and the parenthesis smile lines. No one is stupid. And this from the chick that said bust a skinny girl up side the head for nothing just because she could not stop eating. Cold piece of work she is. She should stop lying and just tell jokes because really who gives two f*cks what she does besides be funny.

    @anonymous it’s not that Overseas is not listening closely, Monique is back tracking on what she said years ago because she received a lot of backlash for it–like she just mentioned. Open marriage refers to partners agreeing to have extra-marital affairs—not spouses who share secrets and are honest w/ one another, this is the ingredients to any functional relationship, and people don’t refer to that as an “open marriage”. She just feels stupid for saying it a couple years ago, so now she wants to pretend like the world misinterpreted her words—BS!

  • Obama already has ruled out any intervention that would require U.S. military troops on the ground. Other options such as deploying American air power to ground the regime’s jets, gunships and other aerial assets are being more seriously debated, officials said, but they cautioned that a no-fly zone or any other action involving U.S. military deployments in Syria were far less likely right now. The U.S. can provide weapons without sending soldiers into Syria, either by sending materiel to rebels in neighboring Turkey and Jordan or working with regional allies.
