    OMG HAIRY LEGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kirsten

    She did do fantastic in that role. Hairy legs aside, I am happy for her.

  • jake

    That is a shame. You dress up and look good for yourself, not for your husband. Plus, what about the public, if you are going to wear a short skirt, at least shave for the public. You always have to put your best self forward. Legs shaved. Its not hard.

  • barbie

    I love how fearless Monique is. Everyone is so shocked at her legs, as if hair is something no-one has ever see before. Good for her, and I wish I could be as brave as she is.

  • cj

    everyone is covered with hair ……………..if it bothers you that she won’t shave you have the problem not MO’nique

  • rock_chick_chic

    it seems like a way to get attention, lets face it she has now been on pretty much every huge media blogs and sites because of the hairy legs. plus alot of thought went into that leg hair, that isnt just forgetting to wax or shave for a day.

  • cj

    llia is a r—-………………well you know

  • cj

    does it make one a bad person for not shaving……………..what some actor and actresses using drugs………….they get more sympathy then MO’NIQUe how sad………….

  • kitty

    that is gross! is not even funny…

  • Mollie

    @rock_chick_chic: Nah. I remember seeing a picture of her with unshaved legs years ago. She just got more popular, so now it is an issue.

  • free

    Im with you Heathen
    those are 2 ugly broads

  • free

    i think Mo has fetal alcohol syndrome

  • Carrie

    Her role wasn’t THAT groundbreaking, to be honest I think a lot of actresses out there could have done a BETTER job that Mo.

    Plus … if the rumours are true and Mo will only promote the film for $100,000, that’s pretty disgusting and completely contradicts the message of the film itself!

  • Kelley

    Congrats Monique

    You have always been a positive person. Glad to see that hard work really pays off.

    Monique has not been shaving for years. Seen this before. Not my thing but qudos for her not conforming.
    For the people that are hating b/c she does shave her legs. Seems like you would still hate if she did. The hate in your heart is far worst than the natural hair that grows in all humans.

    MY EYEES ARE BURNINNNNG

    Oh my God – I couldn’t believe it when I saw this!!!!!

  • yo sista

    Shave that sh!t sista!

  • Elle

    I think she should shave her legs, its not a problem of looking good, or conforming, it is about presenting yourself in a professional manner.. (especially at the Oscars lunch!) I see as disrespectful, if you don’t want to shave (all the power to you!) but make sure you wear the right attire so you still look professional and groomed.

  • Payson

    Oprah needs a BLACK and BIGGER bra to wear under that brown top.

  • LuckyL

    She never shaves her legs though.

  • JENMN

    omg why the hell does she not shave her legs??? i’m disgusted.

  • chicagotune

    no doubt oprah and MO chowed down.
    I don’t doubt it one bit.

  • lizk

    @Payson: Hells yeah!!!

    I wonder if these people who work for or collaborate with Oprah really like her or if they just tolerate her?

  • http://justjared deke

    I really don’t want to see those legs again!!

  • MKK

    They both should have skipped lunch and gotten nose jobs.

  • lalalaove

    Guhhhhh shave ur f**king legs! It’s not even funny!

  • lalalaove

    @MKK:

  • IFC

  • LuckyL

    Can all the KKK members and Skinheads leave now? Thanks

  • Payson

    lizk– I’m sure we’ll never know…too bad!

  • Kelley

    Dear justjared

    Your blog sucks. I know you are blogging but find another way to do a job. There is just so much hate and racism here, I would hate to personally be a part of this. It’s just disgusting.

  • subway

    I HATE Oprah. I can’t wait for to retire. She’s such a racist.

  • Kelley

    @lizk:

    how do you wonder that? The real deal is that you don’t like Oprah and you cant imagine others in the biz liking her. Are you in high school, maybe jr high, right.

    they are hot

  • Bianca

    @Ilia: You said a mouthful and I feel the same way about that African Precious fat girl…

  • BIANCA

    DAMN, OPRAH LOOK DEPRESSED! SHE NEED SOME GREASE FROM ARBYS OR SOME BOTOX OR NIVEA OR VITAMIN E OR SOMETHING!

  • http://JUSTJARED FRANKIE

    FORGET ABOUT MO’NIQUE, LOOK AT OPRAH’S FACE, THIS WOMEN IS CLEARLY DEPRESSED, SHE NEEDS A GOOD F…………..K, THAT’S WHAT SHE GETS FOR NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HER SEXUALITY, AND TELLING WOMEN NOT TO GET MARRIED, AND NOTHING CAN HELP HER FACE, NOT A EVEN A NOSE JOB. SHE THINKS BEAUTY IS A WHITE WOMEN WITH BLOND HAIR. AND SHE HAS NEVER BEEN ATTRACTIVE. PS MO’NIQUE PLEASE YOUR LEGS BELONG ON A RANGATANE(APE)

  • Jo Jo

    My three year old just went to the bathroom, came out and said, “Daddy, I just made a Mo’Nique.”

    I went in to the WC, took a look and sure enough, the kid was telling the truth. Honesty counts! The only thing missing were the hairy legs. It also weighed a great deal less, but otherwise………………………

  • Alexxa

    Well, MoNique is a role model. She did a phenomenal job with her role. She deserved every award that she has won. I was very proud and moved by her speech. It just goes to show that with a little patience and hard work and as long as you have the right people behind you, anything is possible. So eventhough i can tell most of you are not used to seeing Strong Beautiful Elegant Black Women in places of high power like Oprah or wining a much deserved award like MoNique you all still should show some class and dignity about yourselves when posting things about people who you are ignorant about.

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    Well it brings up an interesting question: why do men get away with not shaving their legs or backs, or chest hairs but women HAVE to shave? I shave religiously but to be honest I spend a lot of money getting waxed. Why do men not have to do this ritual? Something sexist about it I think. But I do it because if you are in a relationship, the man likes that but I don’t wax because I enjoy it – I hate it. But women are forced to do this stuff insociety. My opinion.

  • Bernie3200@hotmail.com

    I don’t care who she is. Shave those legs!

  • Dawn

    I dont care much for Oprah and to show off legs like that is a crime.She should know better.
