the horror, the horror. my eyes…they burn!

# 2

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

# 3

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

# 4

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.

# 5

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.

# 6

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

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.

# 8

llia is a r—-………………well you know

# 9

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………….

that is gross! is not even funny…

@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.

Im with you Heathen
those are 2 ugly broads

i think Mo has fetal alcohol syndrome

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!

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.


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

Shave that sh!t sista!

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.

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

She never shaves her legs though.

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

chicagotune @ 03/07/2010 at 5:57 pm

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

@Payson: ***** yeah!!!

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

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