: MediaTakeOut.com just got an EXCLUSIVE REPORT . . . as of yesterday, Mo'Nique's highly rated talk show just got the AXE.
So what happened? Well it's not ENTIRELY CLEAR, but MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a NEWLY UNEMPLOYED producer from the show who claims that it wasn't RATINGS that caused Mo's show to get canceled.
The producer claims that there were "personality conflicts" between Mo and some of the higher ups at BET.
Sad to see Mo get her PINK SLIP . . . but we're HAPPY to say that we don't have to hear anymore HEY BABY'S . . .
As of time of publication, NO media source in the WORLD is reporting Mo'Nique's getting FIRED other than us. MediaTakeOut.com MUST be credited with BREAKING this report. If you don't credit us, we will NEVER credit you or your company for ANY of your reports. Trust us, it's not worth it to STEAL from us.

I CANT WAIT CAUSE AALIYAH DESERVES THIS SHE WAS THE SO SWEET AND HAD THE PRETTIEST FACE IN THE GAME AND ROCKED HER NATURAL HAIR!
Lmao she had too many flops on her show! As soon as I saw that flame rickey smiley on the dusty couch I knew monique days were numbered and I never really liked her fake a$$ anyway! She turned into a b+tch after she lost all that weight and starred in precious with that other fat burnt g0rilla anyways follow me on twitter @jeminibish www.bishesonblast.blogspot.com
The show wasn't a favorite of mine, but I must say that it was an awesome platform for a lot of
black outlets (Entrepreneurs, entertainers, and people being productive citizens) that you simply
will not see on Jimmy Kimmel or David Letterman, or any other network or cable show.
maybe it"s not me after all? i see other folks on here used to like her but like me think she changed after precious ( i hated that movie btw) seem like she got stuck up to me but she did have alot of old schoolers on her show i"ll give her that (chi-hop)!
It was all that damn screaming she do: AAAAAYYYYYYYYY I couldnt watch the show for that. After 1 show (and NOT the entire show) I was done. Just bring back The Parkers. She will be aw'ight........
AND, The Game, better come back, gotta finish watchin Malik fall in LOVE.......
Mo'Nique's show was the only show I watched from that coonish network! They
can cancelled her show but can't cancel the bad made-for-TV movies, Toya's
reality show (what does she do professionally instead being Weezy's ex?) and
The Game (the show was better on the CW)?!
Negroes have turned into a bunch of sellouts. Black people always have to get approval from white folks. We cannot be ourselves. We have to speak and act a certain way so white folks can be comfortable. I am so glad Monique stayed being true to herself. I really love Monique. She supports her people 100%
YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SMDH AT SOME OF THE MOST IGNORANT COMMENTS EVER NO ONE SETS US BACK MORE THAN OURSELVES NOW I WAS NO FAN OF MONIQUE SHOW BUT AT THE SAME TIME I GIVE MUCH RESPECT TO SOMEONE WHO LETS OUR PEOPLE SHINE BECAUSE ALOT OF THE OTHER WACK SHOW WENDY WILLIAMS IS A BIGGER JOKE THAN MONIQUES WAS AND IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOMEONE SETTING US BACK WELL WHO DOES A BETTER JOB THAN MTO LOOK HOW BAD THEY BASH OUR PEOPLE AND INSTEAD OF SOME OF YOU SEEING RIGHT THROUGH THE BULLISH YOU FEED RIGHT INTO IT WE CAN NEVER RISE AS A NATION IF ALL YALL KEEP TEARING EACH DOWN WAKE UP MY PEOPLE! PEACE
had some nice guest on the show but she and her lil back-up guy (whatever his name) was corny as hell.
BET staff probably couldnt take anymore of that loud mouth of hers like the rest of us.
YEAH BAYBEEH!!! YES BAYBEEHH!! THATS RIGHT SHUGA SHOW EM SOME LOVE BAYYYBEH!!!
GOOD! FUC BET! ITS SAD FOR MO' SHES HAD A HARD TIME EVER SINCE HER BROTHER CAME OUT ON
OPRAH WITH THAT MOLESTATION ISH... AND I THINK SHE WAS SCARED TO ACT LIKE REGULAR MO AFTER
SHE PLAYED THAT ROLE IN PRECIOUS... THEN GETTING THE OSCAR, TOO MANY EYES FOR HER TO STILL BE
HERSELF MO USED TO BE RAW, BUT IT WAS TOO MUCH TOO SOON. AND SHE USUALLY HAD WACK ASS
GUEST BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS NOT TO DEAL WITH BAMBOOZLED ENTERTAINMENT (BET)!
Monique's come a long way - and though she was a little unrefined and raw in the beginning, she's truly honed her skills as a talk show host and has showed more class than I ever thought she was capable of. Sorry to hear her show's being cut but I'm sure it won't be the last we'll see of this strong sista. Keep your head up, Mo, and much love to you!
If that's all you got from the show is that she is loud and ghetto.then I really feel.sorry for you. Monique is a deep sincere good hearted person.that like to have fun and not be quiet and serious all the time she a fucking comedian. She had a lot of great moments on the show I am so proud of how far she has come. And I hope this rumor isn't true.I love monique to pieces
And I agree BET is trash and is not a representation of black people. We need a new BET that has more class and shows that represent us in a positive light and brings education. BET is a disgrace, is it even run by blacks? I'm all for entertainment which is why I come to MTO bc a lot of ish on here is funny and the comments have me cracking up. But as far as a network TV station that purports itself to be a channel for blacks and is yet is such an embarrassment, I think TV ONE should be the new BET, I know its owned by them but they just need to do away w BET and we can have TV One and Oprah's OWN network, THE END
Sad, I wouldn't wish anyone to lose their job..we all have bills to pay and lives to live!!!! She is loud but has a great heart for ppl, and does A LOT of charity work and helping young girls. She'll be back in it to win it. Best wishes Mo.
However. BET pls get better programming and stop repeating the same damn movies, cutting off every commercial before it ends and find more black movies than the same 3 u keep showing!!!!
I'll tune in to TVOne long before I tune in to coonish BET until the new season of The Game starts of course. I used to watch Mo's show bcz I like her but the shouting/hey babys kinda got to me too.
If true,With her personality she will bounce back in no time.
oh well when one door closes another one will open she still got doe didnt really care for her show but i would watch monique over that white ass media show that wendy williams is behind shyt take that hot mess off air send dat bitch to e tv or some shyt
Well I'm sry to hear Thts, but Idk she only had z list celebrities on her show any way, but bet wrong for Thts, I mean her show was still str8 even tho she talked entirely to loud, and said sugar to much....lol Idk but good luck Mo! U still gotta Oscar....
SHUT THE HELL UP WITH THAT COONERY $HIT...GUCCI MANE IS COONERY..MEDIATAKEOUT IS COONERY. THATS WHY BLACK PEOPLE CAN'T HAVE ANYTHING BECAUSE OUR OWN PEOPLE TALK SHIT ABOUT US. OLDER BLACKS LOVED THAT SHOW...SHE ALWAYS HAS CLASSY GUEST!AND MAKES ME PROUD WHEN I SEE PEOPLE ON HER SHOW WHO DESERVE IT..GET THE RECONIZITION THEY SHOULD GET...TALK WHAT YOU KNOW!
I didn't like that show. Think that they tried to do the Ellen thing with all of that dancing, but it was just to desperate for me (plus we are laughing at Ellen, not with Ellen, no bueno). The show just didn't seem all that interesting. Sorry Monique, but I'm sure that you can try the acting thing again, right?
THATS WHY US BLACK PPL ARE STILL AT THE BOTTOM,BECUZ WHEN ONE OF US MAKE IT WE
ALWAYS TRY TO HATE AND BRING EM BACK TOTHE BOTTOM,I ADMIT I WAS NEVER A FAN OF
MONIQUE,IN'TILL I WATCHED THE SHOW,SHE GAVE A LOT OF BLACK PPL SHINE THAT WOULD OF
NEVER GOT THAT TREATMENT ON ANOTHER OUTLET,HOW THE FUK YOU GONNA HATE ON SOME ONE
THAT'S GIVING US AND OUTLET TO SHINE,I'M READING ALOT OF COMMENTS ON HERE,AND ALOT
OF YALL SOUND LIKE COONS AND IGNORANT BITCHES,SAYING SHE LOUD AND GHETTO IS JUST
STUPID,CAUSE IF YOU WATCH THE SHOW SHE'S NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL,THAT WAS THE ONLY
SHOW I FUCK WITH ON BET
When your core demographic is the "fat black and loud black woman crowd" what do you expect.
SMDH AT YOU NYGGA AND BYTCHES DEFENDING HER IGNORANCE ! LOVE MO TOO BUT SHE MADE BLACK FOLKS LOOK BAD WIT ALL THAT COONERY ! THIS IS THE STEREOTYPE PEOPLE THINK ABOUT WHEN THEY THINK OF BLACK WOMEN, AND SHE WAS THE NUMBER 1 PROMOTER OF THAT SHYTE !
WE CAN DO BETTER !
I watched ONE show of hers and couldnt take it no more with her phony ass!!! When Lenny Kravitz was on her show you can see the WTF look on his face when she was interviewing him. She is too extra and animated for me with her 'hey baby this and that and I love y'all this' bullshit!
high ratings... she's an academy award winner... she'll get picked up by a
stronger network ... BET needs to start cancelling some other shit while their at
it.... *cough - 106th & park* it's time they wrap it up .. music video countdowns
aren't as exciting as they use to be
SOME OF YOU GUYS ARE UNREAL ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE MAKING YOU LOOK BAD YOU MAKE YOURSELVES LOOK BAD FROM THE GARBAGE THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH BC YOU LOVE IGNORANCE IT IS COON THIS AND GHETTO THAT YALL USE THE SAME BULLISH RACISTS DO DAMN SHAME GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR BEHIND AND STOP DOGGING ON YOURSELVES SO MUCH PEACE
I love monique but I didn't love the show. So I'm not surprised. And her celebrity guest roster was lack luster, too many gospel singers and boring forgetable actresses. Dare I say, big foot Wendy Williams show is better.
CANNOT STAND MONIQUE! SHE SUKKKKKKED! HATED HER! WON'T MISS HER AT ALL!!! THE GUEST LIST WAS AMAZING... MOST OF THE TIME! SHE'LL BE ALRIGHT. SHE CAN JUST WRAP HER ARMS AROUND HERSELF AND SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZE REAL TIGHT!!!!!!!!!!
glad that mess of a coonery and cornbread fluff got cancelled. She in there preachin like she holy and got an open marriage. What type of idiot does she take the public? Wasnt nobody on that show but thugs such as trey songz foxy brown and young money. judge mathis was about the only decent guest on her show and when he came out, he didnt receive no applause. that shows u the level of that dumb black audience she had. only thang missin in that show was some chittlins hamhock and cornbred
lmfao I didn't like her show anyways. too me it fit the older generation and it just seemed so boring to me. Even when I forced myself to watch it because of the guest who were on but it still just made me want to turn the channel almost all the time it came on lmao hahaha true story! lol now she can get on unemployment with the half of the nation ctfu
and for the fools ayin this show was tight yall need to look at yoselves cuz that show was some coonery in a hand bucket.. i am so tired of media givin black folk a bad name first tami from that trashy basketball hoes now monique with her open marriage backwards behind. smh enough of the shuckin n jivin
The person who drove me nuts the most was her side kick guy..what was his name? lol smh... I would love to MO in more dramatic films or in another sitcom....However, as a Talk show host? Advice giver? not so much :o(
Knowing that the show was cancelled doesn't affect me at all. The Mo'Nique Show was kind of corny anyways. Speaking of "coon"
..shows like The Wendy Williams Show and Toya: A Family Affair need to be canceled.
BET is not Black-owned so aint no telling what they wanted her to tap dance to. Much like JP Morgan just bought a stake in Johnson Publishing (yes the makers of Ebony, Jet, etc) which means WE won't have that in a minute either.
Yet, she was the loudest most abrasive, cantankerous, annoying, irritating and vexing, embarrassing Black woman on TV. Couldn't watch her for the damn noise. Then she promotes unhealthy living in this BIG GIRLS crusade and then turns around and loses weight - not because she wanted to, but because she said her husband went to pick her up (literally) and he couldn't. Hopefully she'll resurface - just quieter!
"It's not worth it to steal from yall"? 1st off infomation is public domain unless it's considered a national security risk for the public or real news organizations to know about. 2nd: YALL AIN'T SHIIT!!!! Most the shiit dat spews fron this gossip rag is false or at the least highly suspect. It's unnerving to see that MTO takes themselves so seriously. Chao4now
THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE THAT I THINK YOU ALL SHOULD CONSIDER SOME OF THESE POSTERS ARE SPIES THEY'RE NOT REAL POSTERS AT ALL PAY SPECIAL ATTTENTION TO THE ONES THAT ALWAYS TRY TO DEGRADE US BY SAYING STEROTYPICAL NONSENSE PHRASES TO TRY TO DESCRIBE OUR PEOPLE THEY ALWAYS TRY TO SNEAK IN NEGATIVITY WHENEVER THERE ARE ALOT OF POSITIVE COMMENTS TO KEEP THE FOOLISHNESS GOING MIND YOU SOME PEOPLE ON HERE ARE JUST IGNORANT BUT AND ARE RACISTS SPIES OF MTO I KNOW WHATS UP DON'T FEED INTO IT MY PEOPLE PEACE
they do need to cancel BEt and while they at it they need to stop lettin brothas play professional sports. sick and tired of folk thinkin we just good for sports and play. will the real engineers doctors and black scientist please stand up
katdaddy4- aint you tired of gettin roasted? Myself, blacknbeautydiva, mtoaintshyeet, tastysis along with some others done roasted you dry and crispy. aint yo behind tired of coming to get roasted? Now its mY turn. First off ALL black SISTAHS aint FAT, LOUD, or BROKE. You need to read what you wrote and try to clean that comment up cuz i dont like the way you came at us like that. For sho i aint fat or loud. so come again young california blood
Girlfriends was a good show...wish that they would have expanded on the whole "tony childs" drama.....and "eve" was good too. They ruined the game...trying to turn a comedy into a drama....trying too hard.
I have to be honest I got sick of the yelling and i thought rodney perry was CORNY as hell. But I did enjoy her show I loved seeing celeb's that you wouldn't see on some of these other shows. She dd seem sincere. Glad it wasn't the game. Other then the game bet is so WHACK. I miss donnie simpson. The old 106 midnight w.e it was called when they played the throwback slowjams and comicview
The show was awful. how could they be SO unable to make her - a natural beauty -look fabulous each night? who was the dude, her ed mcmahon? he SUCKED the worst of all. why didn't she just change dudes in that spot. no doubt - some 'friend' b.s. instead of a business decision. she did not work on her interviewing skills... did not get any better at it. she should continue to do other entertainment work. scarier thought based on the braintrust (not) at BET: what will replace her?
@quick2letuknow - true. but you gotta have the competence to go with 'dominant and assertive'. otherwise you are just a bunch of loud noise with unremarkable unattractive, unmarketable attitude and no one will want to be near you - regardless of your gender or theirs.
JASMINE/GUESSJEANS>they need to stop lettin brothas play professional sports.
DUMBEST POST EVER ON MTO AND THATS SAYING SOMETHING!!! HEY B>YTCH WHY DON'T YOU MOVE TO LET SAY ANTARCTICA THAT WOULD SOLVE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS SILLY HOE AND OH HOW YOU DOING TODAY B>YTCH?!?
@THEREALDEAl00 ura so right 100%agree with u,funny thing tho i think wendy
is really fake cuz she always say every white looks good and i wonder does she
need a glasses and when its black she say he aight or some other chit.Bottom
line:wendy promoting whites and Monique which clearly being her self promoting
blacks and refer 2 her brothas as kings cuz she no we are.they trying hard 2
us down and these haters on MTO got alot of problems in there life and evil in
them,if they dont like it switch stations because there are alot of channels,but
keep my TV on BET when am not at home and when home watch it or the sports or
maybe look 4 a good movie,I will stop watching BET if this chit continues.
Im glad she thought she was always like my sista tell them, and calling her white guest things like tell them white girl, and plus her legs were to hairy for tv.see ya. im wendy williams fan not monique
After she lost the weight she got really fake. I'm not saying she needed to stay big if she didn't want to be, but after all those verbal attacks she made on skinny women you'd think she'd be embarrassed by doing an abrupt about face. I guess there's no shame in her game. Better luck next time Mo.
Took the words right outta my mouth! LOL!!!!
Can't sue them for using the word 'black'...but we oughta be able to do it for them IMPLYING that they are entertaining!
I swear, I just wanna get a collective group of venture capitalists together so we can buy BET...and then set that muthaphuka on FIRE!! Worst thing to happen to black people since wack ass nygguhs learned how to rap!
Earlier today, I heard that “The Mo’Nique Show” had been axed. I had sent an email out to various BET publicists to ask what was up. No word back.
At about 1:30 p.m., I called Rodney Perry, who was Mo’Nique’s sidekick on the show. He said he was running into a meeting and didn’t answer my question. While I was at lunch over at the mall court, at 1:40 p.m. EST, he texted me: “I was told indefinite hiatus.”
That’s a euphemism for canceled.
In an interview I did at 2:40 p.m., the stand-up comic said he enjoyed the experience working with Mo’Nique. “I’m selling out shows now,” he said. “That’s a win.” He heard the news from Mo’Nique’s husband but hasn’t spoken to the Oscar-winning actress yet. (He wouldn’t say when he knew about this, implying he has known for awhile.)
“We did some good work,” Perry said. “And I think the show is significant. There hasn’t been an outlet for people of color late night since Arsenio.”
The talk show, which Mo’Nique compared to a high-energy nightly party, lasted two seasons and had been taped in Turner Studios, which are now being used for BET’s show “Reed Between the Lines” through October. When I heard that earlier today, I wondered if that meant “Mo’Nique” was not coming back or had been moved to another studio. If her show were coming back, she would be taping by August. (Like many shows, it does not tape original episodes during the summer.)
This didn’t appear to be an issue of ratings. I didn’t have time to do an entire season’s check on ratings so I sampled four weeks in April, 2011 vs. April 2010. Ratings from April 5 to April 29, 2010 averaged 615,000 viewers a night. From April 4 to April 28, 2011, her show averaged 586,000. That’s only a five percent drop.
Mediatakeout, which broke the story, said there were conflicts between BET management and Mo’Nique. Was it creative and/or financial? The story does not say. It also doesn’t say if BET will seek another talk-show host or just drop the concept.
Perry isn’t sure why the show was cut but thinks it might have been a financial decision. “They haven’t had this type of investment ever,” he said. “We did 300 shows over two seasons. That’s a huge investment.”
IF this TRUE---I have to SAY this BITTERSWEET!
I would never want to see a SISTA out of a JOB BUT IF she had COVICTIONS about something she didn't AGREE with--(like the FORMAT of the show, or they wanted her to dumb-down to FIT-in and so forth) the shows format---or they wanted her to SELL-OUT then---BRAVA Monique!
Her one-liner BABY--BEE is overly USED but the few times that I watched I didn't see anything COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE about the forum.
Anyway, her radio-TALK was canceled and IF true NOW her NIGHTLY broadcast....hmmmmm! THREE times the CHARM MONIQUE!
I used to like the Game until Tasha's role went from (female) minority sports manager to gangsta B, cigarillo smoking, girl I'm the man-sports manager. They too pushed the gay agenda w/that fag wanting to b a 'sunbeam'. It's one thing for a team member (Clay) to 'come out the closet', but a fag wanting to be a part of a team wives org...(sigh, um yeah 'Black Entertainment')
like someone else said, its a cont. effort to remove AA from prime TV slots. Viacom buys BET, changes the platform, we stop watching the BS as they change the agenda. JP Morgan buys a stake in Johnson Pub (Ebony, Jet, etc), change its pro-Blackness, we stop buying, magazines disappear for low sales. Oprah may as well have bought the network, at least some folks would've STILL been fooled. We cant have ISH!
thank god couldn't stand this phony bitch1 she was loving the"cushion" then the fat pig went and lost all the wieght and became siddity ! now she gon sit home and gain back 1000 lbs she lost to fight n the camera lens! FAT BITCH
If this is true then it is our loss. I am a long time Monique fan and applaud
her growth and transformation and triumphs throughout the years. I enjoy the
show and enjoy her on it. This is the only outlet where you can see Black talent
and personalities, that you will NOT see anywhere else.
The show was always about positive topics and influences in the Black community.
Something that BET has never been about.
Perhaps she can move to TBS.
This news saddens me! It was a great show with great guests! The show really had some enlightening moments and she asked in depth questions! I'm not surprised though, I knew it was just a matter of time. Any show that's positive and black on BET eventually gets canceled! We have to keep in mind BET, is not 100% black owned it's owned by Viacom.
Hopefully, TV One or the OWN Network, Oprah Winfrey Network will pick up the show, that would be a good look!
Black people are so miserable and such crabs...she was one of the few people that gave Black people a platform to be seen and heard and still you applaud her show getting canceled...misery love's company.
I knew it would be cancelled...R pERRY THOUGHT IT WAS HIS DAMN SHOW sHE DID NOT NEED A SIDEKICK...sHE COULD HAVE DONE HER SHOW SIMILIAR TO gEORGE LOPEZ...TALK ABOUT CURRENT EVENTS...HAVE SOME GOOD SKITS AND HER EXTENDED COMEDIANS WERE ALL UNATTRACTIVE....i FF THROUGH THE BEGINNING BECAUSE I COULD NOT STAND TO LOOK AT UGLY RODNEY PERRY AND HE WOULD SIT ON THE COUCH AND INTERRUPT INTERVIEWS...SO DISTRACTING AND SO UNPROFESSIONAL... i SENT HER A TWEET SOME MONTHS AGO AND SAID YOU ARE TRYING TO LOOK OUT FOR YOUR FRIEND BUT YOUR FRIEND WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL..GOOD LUCK MONIQUE
