Comedian/actress Mo’Nique is still flaunting her massive weight loss, this time in a slinky silver outfit. She’s also doing the major exercise credited for her new figure.
Mo’Nique looked sensational in a glittering sleeveless dress that went all the way to the floor. The gown featured a V-neck cut and was cinched at the waist, ensuring that the comedian’s new figure is on full display. Her hair was styled in waves and curls reminiscent of old Hollywood glamor, and Mo’Nique did an excellent job of embodying the look.
The “Parkers” star appeared to be on the set of a photo shoot, but that did not stop her from engaging in her favorite exercise. Back in March, Mo’Nique took to Instagram with some fantastic news for her fans: for the first time since she was 17, the actress weighed below 200lbs. For a woman who once weighed 300lbs, that was a pretty significant achievement.
The sharp contrast in Mo’Nique’s body size sparked surgery rumors, but the 50-year-old shut down the speculations, crediting a lot of things, EXCEPT surgery, for her new weight.
“For me it was with no surgery, no pre-packaged foods, not listening to no spokespeople saying ‘it’s easy, you can do it.’ It was just putting in the work and not giving up on me,” she said, adding:
“I want to share with y’all what it looked like on the scale this morning, and I want to share with y’all the goodness that you can eat and still drop this weight. It’s called raw foods, it’s called dancing your pounds off. It’s called giving yourself the chance to live the best life you can live.”
Since embarking on her weight loss journey, Mo’Nique has been sharing dance videos more often on social media, but when rumors of surgery persisted, the Academy award winner posted another one with her dance coach and wrote:
“SURGERY YOU ASK? Baby this is all the SURGERY I've ever done. DANCE SURGERY.”
Sadly, Mo’Nique has also caught some flack more recently for her tenacious defense of fellow comic actor, Roseanne Barr, who was disgraced for her racist comments. Barr referred to Valerie Jarrett, former advisor to former President Obama as an ape and a terrorist, but Mo’Nique insisted:
“We’re comedians. And I know her. And what she thought was funny, as a comedian, that’s what it was. Has she ever said, ‘Kill Black people?'”
According to Mo’Nique, Barr could not be racist because she was one of the few white celebrities that agreed to appear on Mo’Nique’s now-defunct show when even Black colleagues declined to come.
Doesn't look like Mo'Nique's doing a very good job of winning this fight, so maybe she should just stick with the dancing.
