BEST MO'NIQUE EVER
With the possible exception of Three 6 Mafia, not many Oscar winners can include working with Flava Flav on their rÃ©sumÃ©. Mo'Nique went from stand-up to sitcoms to reality TV before recently nabbing Hollywood's most coveted award for her portrayal of an abusive mom in Precious, a role that makes Faye Dunaway as Mommie Dearest look like Mother Hubbard. Mo'Nique returns to comedy on her current Spreading the Love tour, where the "heavenly honey," "megamasterpiece" and "P.H.A.T (Pretty Hot And Thick)" actress will no doubt narrow in on her favorite target: skinny bitches, or, as she called them in her 2004 size-acceptance manifesto, Skinny Women Are Evil: Notes of a Big Girl in a Small-Minded World , "a powerful, nimble and wicked bunch." Her suggestion? "Trick them with a one-day all-you-can-eat salad special, round them up, and ship their tiny asses off to a sandy island with nothing green on it, just wall-to-wall fried chicken and fast food." The size 22, 220-pound fat lady has sung.
