WTH is that all about?! Why be married then?

(I also heard she has hairy legs - a contributing factor? LOL)

Prior to her current marriage, Mo'Nique was married and divorced twice. She has twin sons Jonathan and David, and another son, Shalon. She and her husband, Sidney Hicks, have what she calls an open marriage, as she mentioned in a profile in The New York Times:

“ We have an agreement that we'll always be honest, and if sex happens with another person, that's not a deal breaker for us, that's not something where we'll have to say, 'Oh God, we've got to go to divorce court because you cheated on me.' Because we don't cheat".[15] ”

She later clarified her comments on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show that aired January 28, 2008. She told Oprah Winfrey that in her prior marriages, she was constantly searching for "that extra oomph".[16] Mo'Nique explained, "When I said I had an open marriage, people automatically jumped to sex. They automatically went there. But I've been best friends with my husband since we were 14 years old. When we say open, we're very honest. There are no secrets. Oftentimes you have people that are married, but they're strangers, and we refuse to be those people".[17] She concluded, "I've had to sneak and I've had to lie, and I don't want to do that any more. But my husband is so awesome and so fine and so—oh, girl....No other man can compare"

But I heard that she has "let him" stray, but she hasn't done it once.

It's quite a lot different from my "Cheat and you die, but only after I've made your life a living hell and taken every penny you have" marriage.

I think the open marriage thing is kind of sad. It's like you've been hurt so many times that you decide it's just easier to lower your expectations so far that you really don't have any.

This. I agree 100%.

She does not shave her legs. She was on the Barbara Walters Special last night and they showed them. Definitely not my cup of tea. Blech. The women on my dad's side of the family never shaved and I swear it gave me nightmares. double blech.

As for the open marriage- it was more along the lines of it wasn't a deal breaker in their marriage. Not that it was necessarily an open marriage. At least that is what I took from her explanation last night.

A lot of black women don't shave their legs. A lot of my black friends don't, anyway. I don't shave mine, either, haha! It doesn't seem to bother Denny.

I think it is kind of sad to have a built in excuse to cheat. Why be married if you can't be faithful? NTM it puts the spouse at risk for STDs and other gross stuff.

She is a heavy woman in a land of thin women in Hollywood. Why would she want one more thing stacked against her, looks-wise?

They were making jokes on the radio about when she won her award and raised her arms. Evidently, there was a lot of "bush" under there, too!!! LOL

Mo'nique played the abusive mother in "Precious", not that I've seen it. Apparently she's a comedian by trade, and just happened to fall into this position.

Allie, I'm curious, why don't you shave your legs?
