C'Mon Hollywood, You're Killin' Me


I wasn't going to make a blog post today. I really wasn't. But this story just BEGS for discussion and I have yet to see much discussion...

You've probably all read about Mo'Nique and her 'open marriage' which she discusses with Barbara Walters on her Oscar special.

What.Is.Up.With.That????

Mo'Nique is multi-talented and comes across as incredibly self-assured, with hairy legs, so why would she put up with a husband who she pretty much says (in a round about way) is free to cheat on her (although she's been faithful to him)? And call me crazy here, but doesn't it DEFEAT THE PURPOSE OF MARRIAGE??

Salma's booby time reading pales in comparison to this. Your thoughts?

----------------------------------
Update: A couple of you have inquired about the hairy legs reference:

How did I miss this? I think that very, very few couples can actually make this kind of relationship work.

I couldn't live with it, but hey whatevah floats your boat... I hope she isn't settling, thinking she can't do better. As you said she seems so confident... and she is beautiful.

Anyone who buys into this is deluding themself. It *will* all end in tears.

Love this: "Mo'Nique is incredibly talented and comes across as incredibly self-assured, *with hairy legs*". Oh... so funny! :D

Mmmm....hairy legs..didnt here that part...LMAO...tooo funny..now about the other...maybe she is having some open-ness herself..I dint see the show so I dont know..but I saw her on "O" and she did seem like a sexual beast..always open and ready for "What-Eva'..(as I snap my fingers..get it)..which is all fine and good and fun..but Im just sayin maybe shes doin it to and they both like it that way.. Def not for me...although one day I asked hubs if he mined if I had a lesbian affair and he said no..he wouldnt mind...WTF..!!..not that Im interested in that, but more so his view on it....and no he doesnt want to watch (that was what my friend asked me)..Any Hoo Have a great day..!..Oh and Carma...I was laughing at your email to me at 3 in the morning (cuz I read it before bed..who knows..?) and hubs was "like what are you laughing at"..and i just said "A blog" thing"..he's like....Oh..!..

I totally missed that!

wow...I saw her on "charm school" on VH1 and what a hypocrite! all the stuff she was telling those girls and she has an "open" marriage? I don't buy the concept...that's not marriage.

Lucy said...

I am stuck on the Hairy Legs, what is that about, no wonder he wanders. No, really, I always think that Open Marriages are TROUBLE, why get married?

w said...

oh man. my friend did a post on monique and her hairy legs. i thought for sure i'd never have to see those legs again.

i was wrong.

Rebecca Jo said...

I saw that & was stunned... how does someone allow her husband to do whatever he wants & respect herself? OR HIM??!?!?!?! EGGADDDS!

~ Mel ~ said...

Agree with Lucy, here. Why get married if you want to be with other people?!

Date Girl said...

Ew. Ew. Ew. To both the hairy legs AND the open marriage. Bleck!

alessandra said...

I simply don't get how hairy legs match with a dress and high heels, and why bother to marry at all?
Hey but variety is the spice of life!....?

buffalodick said...

I've seen more feminine male cross dressers!

Randi Troxell said...

personally.. and this is just my opinion.. but talking about open marriages.. yikes!! talk about opening door, the WRONG DOORS... plus.. hellooooo! i wouldn't wannna some other chic with my hubby!!!

and those legs, oh my...

have a lovely wkend!

~Kristen~ said...

I am all about live and let live. If it works for them, eh, whatever. It is not for me. I mean, if you want to have an open relationship why bother getting married?

I read that she said her husband actually prefers her with hairy legs!!! I so don't get that either. And even if my husband preferred hairy legs on me ( could never see that happening), I don't prefer it and would shave them anyway!!!

blueviolet said...

He must be a freak, a freak not worth having!

Michelle Pixie said...

Her legs look like my hubby's in heels! I probably should have waited to read this until after dinner....

Um yeah the faithful thing is a deal breaker for me! But I guess if it works for them?! I just can't help but feel a little sorry for her because I just think that is her insecurities coming out and some one must have really done her wrong. :(

Joy said...

It could be a tradeoff - she gets to never shave and he gets to --

Nah, that can't be it.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

I hadn't heard about any of that (of course, I haven't seen her movie, either...), but my guess is that "marriage" won't last.

And what is up with those legs? Can the woman not afford a razor???

Unknown Mami said...

I've heard her discuss the open marriage thing before and it is very odd.

Kristin said...

Wow. Just wow. The thought of the hubs being with anyone else makes me want to burst into flames.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I couldn't do it.

Sissy said...

honestly, it works for some people. not for me but if that's what floats your boat...

AnnQ said...

While it's not something I could do, I do know a couple who does and they're both cool with it (she's free to sleep with whomever she wants, so long as she tells him about it. In DETAIL.).

There's a lid for every pot. :-)

Mocha Dad said...

It's sad that she accepts this behavior from her husband.

Fifi Flowers said...
