when we go to work everyday,
we are met with nonsense from bosses and co workers.
no matter the jobs we have,
it can be a war zone.
if your co worker was calling out bosses,
and then in one of her/his rants said:
“remember when you told me about insert your boss here.
how you felt you were being treated unfairly?
remember that you told me in this text we had…”
would you also stand behind them?
or would you be like “bitch,
i don’t know what you’re talmbout…”?
if i’ve learned anything in working,
whether it’s jobs or this blogging career,
i’ve learned you play the game of chess and not checkers.
you truly catch more flies with honey.
as a fox,
i’ve learned to be patient before i strike.
so i’m watching the show down between mo’nique and “the breakfast club”…
…and i’m still not sure what the whole situation is even about.
i think folks are hyped because she was so “nice/nasty” in her defense.
and all that other auntie terminology.
i wasn’t moved.
did mo’nique forget her full expose on lee daniels/oprah/and tyler perry?
did she not realize she exposed her past bosses/co workers?
if she woulda came out with this netflix story first,
i probably would have been rallying behind her sketchy cause.
it would have been a “surprise” since she has been so lowkey.
she has continuously showed me she is a risky investment.
when something doesn’t go her way,
she is pulling out emails and detailing private conversations.
viola davis said this in a recent interview:
and it is the same fight as mo’nique,
but her execution was different.
mo’nique came out demanding a damn boycott of netflix.
it’s like she is big mad charlamagne called her “donkey of the day” also.
he calls out everyone on donkey on the damn day!!!!!
she ain’t special.
even i can get “donkey of the day”.
it has nothing to do with being a black vixen or age in the case of mo’nique.
i also had to ask myself:
What makes Mo’Nique a legend?
when i think of legends,
i think of people who had defining career moments and had tremendous influence.
who did mo’nique open the door for?
not to take away anything from mo’nique’s career,
but should we really be throwing the word “legend” out for her?
she was on “the parkers”,
did the queens of comedy tour,
won an oscar for portraying a demon of a sista jackal,
and then what after that?
she sells out comedy tours?
is that what makes one a legend nowadays?
some folks don’t even want to call beyonce a legend.
she even went on “the view” with more:
how could she say she suffered when she was in “bessie”?
she was also still successfully touring and was in “almost christmas”.
maybe i’m missing it.
can one of ya’ll explain this for me?
