Mo'nique is Still a Comedy Queen
At the filming of The Oprah Winfrey Show's "After the Oscars Party" episode at the Kodak Theatre today (which I attended, nerds!), Mo'nique proved she had not been changed by her win. During commercials, the comedian hollered at one hooting audience member who claimed she was from Mo'nique's native Baltimore. "Yeah, I know where that is," Mo'nique called to her, as Oprah's hair was straightened and fluffed by assistants. When the audience member kept calling from the upper balconies, Mo'nique leaned forward and bellowed, "You need to sit down!" The teensy Sandra Bullock, seated next to her, laughed and didn't seem frightened.
