Mo’Nique Heading Back To TV To Host LHH-NYC 2-Part Special

Mo'Nique Heading Back To TV To Host LHH-NYC 2-Part Special

We’re on Mo’Nique watch, thanks to interest from some of you, who’ve been wondering what the actress/comedienne has been up to, given her relative “silence” since winning her Oscar for Precious, and the cancellation of her BET late night show. 

Was she blacklisted?” is a question I’ve seen asked from time to time.

So what’s Mo’Nique up to now? Well, she’s going to be appearing on a TV screen near you in about 2 weeks, when she’ll host the two-part reunion for the current New York season of VH1’s hit reality series Love & Hip Hop NY.

On Monday, January 27th, VH1 wrapped up the highest rated season yet of the series with a finale that scored a 2.0 in the key adult 18-49 demo and attracted 3 million total viewers. When combined with the 10:00 PM ET/ PT encore, 4.2 million total viewers tuned in to the season four finale on VH1 Monday night.

For a series I’ve never actually watched, those are some strong numbers for a cable TV network like VH1.

VH1 is continuing that momentum by picking up a fifth season of the series, to begin production in New York City later this year. Additionally, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta will return to VH1 for a third season in May 2014.

The two-part reunion special for the current New York season, hosted by Mo’Nique, will air on February 3rd and 10th

I suppose this is what life is like after winning an Oscar.

Wow! This has got to be an all-time new low for an Oscar winner.

As for her, allegedly being blacklisted, that is so 1950s. No one gets
"blacklisted" anymore. …Besides there's no good reason to "blacklist" her.


Mo'Nique makes me SMH all the time…


From Oscar to Love and hip hop? Really?
