Okay, real talk. I’m hairless on my gams and thank God every day for it. For with all the other grooming areas to be concerned with, hairy legs are a beauty issue I’m blessed not to be worried about. So I feel for women who have to shave every day. Really, I do. But when photos of Mo’Nique at the Golden Globes appeared where she gladly showed off her hot steppas-topped off with a French pedicure– full of hair, I gasped and did a double take! Is that hair fuzz I see in those photos? Yes, indeed. Why would she groom her face, her underarms, and her toes and not just shave those legs for such a special moment. It reminded me of Julia Roberts hairy reveal a few years ago. Julia, while walking the red carpet, raised her arm to wave at fans and at least three inches of underarm hair waved back. She said Benjamin Bratt, her boyfriend at the time, liked it.
Back then, saving the New York Post and Joan Rivers, there were limited opportunities for post-hair reveal commentary. For Mo’Nique, however, it was a different story. You Tube has seen over 30,000 views from folks who made video responses discussing her hairy legs, and comedian Jimmy Kimmel included it in his monologue, joking that she she was promoting a Chia Pet.
