Mo’Nique On Whoopi Goldberg : ‘She Has Always Been the Help’

Mo’Nique sat down for an interview with Vulture a year after she asked for us to boycott Netflix and held nothing back.

It’s a long read , but she did go into detail about her on going feud with Whoopi Goldberg after she appeared on The View last year.

Check out this excerpt:

After you announced your Netflix boycott, you went on radio shows like The Breakfast Club and Sway in the Morning to explain what had happened. Then when you appeared on The View, Whoopi Goldberg told you?

“I’m going to stop you because, contractually, when you make a movie, regardless of who you sign the deal with, your job is to go and promote said movie.” She continued saying, “And we’ve had this conversation, and I said if you had called me I could’ve schooled you on what was expected.” When I sat there on that platform on The View, I felt sorry. I had empathy for my sister Whoopi Goldberg. Because what you’re saying to me is, “You must work for free. I could’ve schooled you.” The very thing I went to The View to speak about was the very thing I experienced on The View. You give me three minutes to talk about inequality? Well, I was there the whole show. When you have a woman saying, “I could have schooled you,” someone would say, “What was the schooling going to be?” When I look at this woman you say is our icon and our legend — she is. But, how many things has Whoopi Goldberg executive produced? Whoopi Goldberg has always been the help, and I say that humbly. So what is it that you’re going to school me on? I’ve been doing it for almost 30 years.

This is a woman who says “I could have schooled you,” and this is a woman who accepted Ted Danson in blackface, and our community praises this woman. So oftentimes, we do it to ourselves. But, I just can’t. Understand, I love my sister. However, when you know you’re being fed the wrong food, you must say, “I can’t chew this, y’all.”

Was there ever an opportunity to address Whoopi privately? I feel like a lot of these things kept happening publicly.
Whoopi and I did have a conversation after that. I was up in Whoopi Goldberg’s dressing room — and you’re the first person I’m telling this to. I said to Whoopi Goldberg, “Listen, sister.” Because she said, “Mo’Nique, you gotta let that go. You gotta move on. People just wanna see what’s going to happen to you next.” I said, “Whoopi, I can’t let it go. I gotta think about the little sister who’s not here yet.” And our icon and our legend said, “You better stop worrying about the little sister who’s not here yet and worry about you.” In that moment I knew I was looking at a woman who didn’t give a damn about me. And if she’s telling me, “Stop worrying about that little girl who not here yet,” well, she forgot about the ones that came before her who were worried about her.

We Dont Want It : ‘Sister Act 3’ Is On The Way Without Whoopi Goldberg

‘Sister Act 3’ is officially in the works, but Whoopi Goldberg will have no parts of it.

via EW:

Anyone with very specific memories of shouting “Salve Regina” at the top of their lungs while on a middle school choir field trip might find this news particularly interesting: 25 years after Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit debuted with one of the best sequel titles this side of Reno, Sister Act 3 is now in development for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, EW has learned.

Regina Hicks, an executive producer on HBO’s Insecure, and Karin Gist, showrunner of Fox’s Star, are penning the next chapter in what began as the saga of Deloris Van Cartier for Disney+. Plot details are currently unknown, but the biggest question remains: will Whoopi Goldberg make an official return? Sadly, it doesn’t seem that way, despite what she said in the past.

“It is our understanding that this is not a continuation and Whoopi is not involved,” a rep for the actress told EW.

Reps for Disney did not immediately respond to EW’s requests for comment.

Goldberg starred in the first Sister Act of 1992 as Deloris, a Las Vegas lounge singer who witnesses her mob boss boyfriend commit murder. She’s placed in a nunnery in witness protection and becomes Sister Mary Clarence. Maggie Smith, Kathy Najimy, Wendy Makkena, Harvey Keitel, and the late Bill Nunn also starred. In addition to Sister Act 2, the film spawned a Broadway musical, which featured a part for Goldberg.

Goldberg first mentioned the “different direction” for Sister Act in September on Good Morning Britain (around the 3:25 mark of the below video).

“We’ve been all over Disney begging and they’ve decided that they’re going to go in a different direction with Sister Act. So it won’t be Sister Act 3, it’ll be a brand-new rendition of Sister Act,” the EGOT winner said. “And I guess I’ll walk through a scene and that’s how they’ll say I was part of it.”

Sister Act 3 joins a number of other titles Disney hopes will build up its Disney+ streaming library. These include live-action television series around Avengers movie characters, like Loki, Scarlet Witch, Winter Soldier, and Falcon. Diego Luna and Pedro Pascal are also getting their own series based in the world of Star Wars: one on Luna’s Rogue One character and the other titled The Mandalorian.

There is NO ‘Sister Act’ without Sister Mary Clarence — PERIODT.
