I don't know if its her dude or her diva attitude, but you're girl "MoNique" is punk'n the industry like a dude. Due to her attitude "Mo’Nique" might lose out possible Osacr bid for the movie "Precious" that she co stars in with "Mariah Carey". She hasn't done any promotions for this movie and has not appeared at the New York Film Festival premiere or the Toranto Film Festival premiere. Reason being, all about the money, honey. She didn't come because she wanted a $100,00 for an appearance fee and hair and makeup and that they all fly first class.
“Mo’Nique said she signed on to do this film for a small amount of money. She said she didn’t care about ‘no Oscar’ - all that mattered was ‘those Benjamins!’ Because Oprah and Tyler Perry are backing the film, she feels as though there should be a budget to pay for her promotional duties,” the source explains.
"Oprah" and "Tyler" said two can play at that game so they instructed Lionsgate not to put Oscar buzz behind her name. Instead their concentrating their promotions for Oscars behind "Mariah Carey" and "Gabby Sidibe". “When people say, ‘You care more about money than winning an Oscar,’ well, what does an Oscar mean? An Oscar means more work when you win it, and that means more money!” Mo’Nique says in response to the allegations. “I couldn’t eat that Oscar. Everybody needs money, baby. That’s how we survive, right?”
Reps for "Oprah", "Tyler Perry" and Lionsgate declined to comment, but the film’s director, Lee Daniels, was quick to say, “Mo’Nique is not a diva. She puts her soul into whatever she does. I love her very much.”
