In this excerpt from Monique and her husband Sidney’s periscope podcast they discuss Adrienne Bailon’s comments made on the The Real talk show. They say although she is not on Monique’s level right now, one day she may be.
And they also discuss Gabourey Sidibe not being provided hair and makeup assistance when doing promotions for Precious.
They feel Lee Daniels should have automatically looked out for the star of his movie and not had her out doing press looking like Precious, for real. They also discuss Lee Daniels originally making Gabourey Sidibe fly coach (despite her size at the time.) And how he didn’t upgrade Gabourey’s ticket until Monique asked him to.
Monique is saying all that to say, she cares about the future generation of actresses of color, including Adrienne Bailon, and she wants them to be treated fairly even though she was not.
