Mo’Nique Breaks Down The Rules To Her Open Marriage & Talks Lee Daniels + Gabby Dishes On Beyonce Friendship


Mo’Nique trekked it to the clubhouse to chat with Andy Cohen about the rules to her open marriage with her husband Sidney Hicks. She also revealed if she would ever work with Lee Daniels again. Get those deets and find out what Gabrielle Union said about her friendship with Beyonce inside…

Almost Christmas co-stars Mo’Nique, Gabrielle Union and Omar Epps stopped by the clubhouse to chop it up with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live" last night before their holiday film hits theaters on November 11th.

Since Mo’Nique shared she and her husband Sidney Hicks have an open marriage, many have questioned how they make it work.  Well, it’s simple…at least for them. She said it all boils down to honesty.

“Let me tell you what the rule is so that everybody is clear," she said. "The rule is simply honesty. Often times we’re with people where we can’t say ‘this is how I’m feeling.’ And you find out it’s so not about sex, it’s not about can you be with other people. It’s simply about, I won’t take any secrets to my grave and he won’t take any to his.”

Andy asked if they have any rules about going on vacation with a lover, which she responded, “We don’t go on vacations with anyone other than our family.”

Is there a rule with the number of times you can sleep with someone outside of the marriage? “No”

They’ve been happily married for a decade and she credits that to their open marriage. She said the idea of an open marriage was HER idea and not his.

“When we first got into it, it was my idea,” she shared. “When we first had the conversation it was because I was in the mindset of ‘I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer and I want to have it all. So I said, ‘you know what I want an open marriage.’ And he said ‘Mo’Nique, we’ve been friends since the 10th grade. Do you think that’s going to stop us from loving one another? So, it was just being able to have that dialogue to say, ‘Hey, let’s make sure we’re always open and honest.”

The Oscar winner went on to say the world took [their open marriage] as her allowing him to sleep around with any woman he wanted because "she’s a fat girl" and "he’s a beautiful man," but that’s simply not the case.

Peep the clip below:

A fan called in and asked Mo’Nique if she would ever work with Lee Daniels again after she made claims that he black balled her from the industry. She said the last interaction she had with Lee was a warm telephone conversation. Will she ever work with him again? Yes!  They hit a rough patch in their friendship, but they’re still cool.

Gabby, who looked amazing in a black jumpsuit, doesn’t say much about her friendship with Beyonce after she compared their relationship to “fight club,” meaning what happens between them STAYS between them. But, she did serve a little info on her friendship with Bey.

Are Dwyane Wade and Jay Z good friends? “Yes, they’re pretty close.”

Who pays when they all go out? “Not us!”

What does Beyonce smell like? “Moonlight and roses.”
