RadarOnline broke exclusive news yesterday reporting that Oscar winning actress and comedienne Mo’Nique is not pleased with how the Oprah Winfrey interview with her brother Gerald Imes turned out.
Although Mo’Nique gave Oprah her blessing to interview her brother, she declined an invitation to join the show.
According to the report, Mo’Nique’s brother sought out Oprah for an interview, calling the Talk Show Queen asking if he could appear on the show.
The interview aired on Monday – Imes confirmed he molested his sister, Mo’Nique. Imes indicated that the molestation continued for a year or two starting when he was 13 and Mo’Nique was 7 or 8.
In what was Imes’ effort of bringing an estranged family together is reportedly now worse than ever.
The source also stated, “Oprah and Mo’Nique were never the best of friends. Mo’Nique was less than impressed with how the interview played out as she felt her brother lied and that it was not sympathetic enough towards her. The source adds, “Mo’Nique was particularly upset that Gerald lied to Oprah that he molested her while she was sleeping because she was wide awake and scared of him. She (Mo’Nique) is angry that he did not get any help or enter a rehab and she does not trust him around children.”
Was it a poor decision for Oprah to accept Mo’Nique’s brother’s request for an interview? Speak on it!
