Mo'Nique On Her Open Marriage And Hairy Legs

| Filed under: Barbara WaltersLove LineAwardz

She's quite the non-traditional woman to say the least!

Mo'Nique
recently opened up to Barbara Walters about her marriage to Sidney Hicks and why she doesn't feel the need to shave her legs! Here are some HIGHlights:

On her open marriage to Sidney:

"Let me say this: I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney. Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That's not a deal-breaker. That's not something that would make us say, 'Pack your things and let's end the marriage…'

"We've been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are. Oftentimes, people get into marriages and they don't know who they're laying next to. I'm very comfortable and secure with my husband."

On her hairy legs:

"He loves the hairy legs and if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go. I tried shaving one time, and it was so uncomfortable and painful. I said never again would I do that to myself. I'm 42 and I'm very hairy."

On her potential Oscar speech:

"I don't like thinking about that, because I'm big on the universe. I don't want to start making this speech or [think about what] I'm going to say because I don't want the universe to say, 'Really? You so sure about that?' Let's not jinx it."

Hey, whatever works! And we think it's probably hard to find a man who can appreciate hairy legs, so good for Mo!

  2. 2

    Up until a 100 years ago, all women had hairy legs.



  3. 3

    Fuck, I wish all men thought that like. Shaving is a fucking hassle.

    Although little beats the feel of sleeping with freshly shaved and lotioned legs.



  4. 4

    Go for what ya know mo - yo!

  6. 6

    Gross.. hairy legs… I'm sorry… I can't look at this woman now…



  8. 8

    I think that she's a very beautiful and talented actress/comedian, but she doesn't seem to understand what "marriage" means. It doesn't mean that your husband can sleep with whomever he wants to if the opportunity comes…

    Don't sell yourself short! You deserve to be treated like a princess! No man that you are with or married to should want to be with anyone else but you!



  9. 9

    Shaving is painful? Maybe back in 1979 with a disposable Bic, but there've been a lot of improvements since then.

    If Whoopi Goldberg can glam it up for an awards show, then so can Mo'.



  10. 10

    she actually looks pretty in the picture



  11. 11

    a women is so secure and comfortable in her own skin.. i love it!



  12. 12

    WOW…IT'S HER LIFE BUT DAMN, SO YOUR HUSBAND CAN FUCK AROUND AND YOU'RE OK WITH THAT?! I'M DISAPPOINTED IN MO'NIQUE FOR EVEN THINKING THAT WAY. NO WONDER THE DUDE IS HAPPY AS A LAMB! HE'S GOT A RICH WOMAN TO FEED OFF OF AND HE CAN FUCK AROUND WHENEVER HE WANTS TO! WOW



  13. 13

    Re: thesleepless – Totally agree on all counts.



  14. 14

    The open marriage part is just strange. Is she afraid that if she expects him to be faithful she'll lose him? Desperate. She could do better..



  15. 15

    MO MO HONEY NO, I hope ur man is thoughtful enough not to sleep outside his marriage and set a real example for his son girl, BOO if the shaving hurts then why dont you VEET it



  16. 16

    Re: sarahwall – girl you said it right, high five !!!!



  17. 17

    Good for her. She's realistic. Guys get horny and they cannot eat the same penut butter and jelly sandwich every night.



  18. 18

    Re: EvaDiva – Youd rather your husband look at you like you'rea ball and chain and know he's miserable to be married to you?
    I think she's realistic. its just sex, he just needs to blow his load and then he can go back to her.

    often with guys its like sneezing, you just do it to get rid of it, it doesnt have much meaning



  19. 19

    Re: sarahwall – Honestly, who are you to say what a marriage is anyway? Everyone has their own dynamics and just because it makes you feel 'icky' because it's violation of your religion or something…keep that to yourself!



  20. 20

    Hey it's her marriage and if she is okay with fine but I'd personally kill the prick!



  21. 21

    The only time it's painful to shave is when you cut yourself, other than that. I don't have a problem.



  22. 22

    That's because he's probably used to rubbing up against men's legs…HOMO!HELLO! He married his hag of 25 years! Is your gaydar busted fools?



  23. 23

    She is STYLISH and honest I have a feeling she will take home Oscar and well deserved.

  24. 24

    Her legs and her marriage are her business. She seems like a strong confident woman! Loved her in 'Two Can Play That'!

    25

    oh GAG, no one wants to know that you're covered in hair. so friggen nasty!



  26. 26

    The hairy legs? eewww — I'm sorry Mo, that's gross.
    Shaving your legs is painful? No, I don't think so. It's a hassle, but if you use a sharp razor and some wonderful girlie scented shaving cream, it doesn't hurt.
    Someone else suggested waxing, now that does hurt, but if I had her money, I'd endure the pain and wax because it lasts much longer.
    Mo has money, she could hire someone to shave her legs. Hell, her husband should shave her legs! A lot of husbands do.

    As far as having other partners…I bet the women he sleeps around with shave their legs! LOL

  27. MP says – reply to this


    27

    She can always get her legs lasered.



  28. 28

    I am liking her more and more everyday.
    What a empowered person.



  29. 29

    WTF?? she doesn't know if her man is sleeping around and if he is she's ok… I don't care how talented you are or how much you have… that is a "HELL NO" to me.



  30. 30

    Shaving/waxing can be very painful for some women, especially black and Mediterranean women. The hair is course and curly so often it result in many red bumps and terribly painful ingrown hairs all over, which also result in many scars. It's more than a matter of inconvenience. I would never go out and show off my hairy legs, because I would be waaay too insecure, and I know people would judge me and call me nasty and everything else so I wear pants all the time, even in the summer. Even when I do shave my legs, and am still insecure because of the scars so I dont wear shorts or skirts. When I see Monique doing this, it just makes me feel really great about myself, no matter what you ppl say.
    So to the people who say that she is hairy and that is so fucking nasty…grow up. honestly. You have hair on your body too,you just lucked out in your genes and it's just way easier for you to hide that and pretend you dont. I know that my legs have never been a deal-breaker! We all have our flaws.



  31. 31

    Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes.

    The way she said that, it seems she's unsure that if her husband has had sex outside the marriage. Is that really a marriage?



  32. 32

    Geez an open marriage??? Im sorry, aint got much respect for couples like that. Apparently the two don't love each other THAT much. Btw, is Sid fucking men outside of their marriage? How awfully strange for a woman to think cheating is okay…



  33. 33

    No comment for the "hairy" legz.



  34. 34

    Re: chiro – So waxin is even LESS painful than shaving??

  35. 6one9 says – reply to this


    35

    Her ass is too FAT to bend down and shave ““` is ALL!! come on now!! :)



  36. 36

    Re: PerezTheBlogNazi – Hey girl. Love Mo'Nique! Damn good actress.



  37. 37

    Hairy legs are natural and she's right, shaving is uncomfortable and PAINFUL!! If she doesn't want to shave, then she doesn't have to. If the hair wasn't meant to be there then we we would've all been born hairless.

    I wonder if she lets her husband sleep with other people???



  38. 38

    I bet she has a hairy puzzy too…



  39. 39

    Stanky hairy puzzy….



  40. 40

    A doctor once said its in a mans DNA to cheat. I bet he made that up. Men cheat. Even Halle Berry got cheated on. I guess she's doing it because she thinks men get bored, even if they're the most beautiful woman in the world. Maybe they are. I don't know. I'll keep my marriage CLOSED thank you.

  42. 42

    She's fine with the open marriage thing now, but I bet she'll be rethinking that bad decision when he falls in love with someone else. Sex is one thing, love is another.



  43. 43

    What kind of twisted shit is THIS? Why get married in the first place if your going to be so opened about it. weird…



  44. 44

    If shaving is painful, then you're doing it wrong. And if her hubby likes hairy legs, maybe he's on the down low…thinks about being with a man when he rubs up againt those hairy stumps



  45. 45

    Re: sarahwall – that's ideal. your man wants to fuck 50 other women, though. And that's just who he saw today. It's nothing personal. But wake up.



  46. 46

    There is no such thing as an open marriage in my book. You are either with me or you're not. And hairy legs are gross. She needs a healthy dose of some self-esteem! Good actress though.

  47. 6one9 says – reply to this


    47

    Oh yeah “““““` What about NAIR????? Rub it on “` wait 10 minutes ““` wash it off along with the hair.

    Re: buckets8 – Amen , Strong beautiful woman , dont listen to the haters honey!

    It would be about as hard for a man as it is to find a woman who appreciate hairy legs; and most all men's legs are hairy. It becomes a non-issue, or it should. Also, I don't think she's saying it's an 'open' marriage, but that after all of these years it would take more than a tryst to end their marriage.
    That's confidence in what they've had and have.

    Re: Tobotv2 – I wish I could PAY you for having the patience to explain reality to the shallow! Very nicely explained! NOW do you grossed-out little drones get it? I'll tell you what's ugly. SUFFERING JUST TO CONFORM!!



  52. 52

    Shaving is painful? That's weird, do the hairs on her legs have feeling? Must be painful to get a haircut then.



  53. 53

    how is shaving painful?!



  54. 54

    You go Mo….she's a woman who has her own and having trust in her man….well as long as he's taking care of business at home….then go. Less she has to do. As long as he does'nt bring her something she cant get rid of and all those bitches know, they will never be her…..then go for it. Live long and happy.



  55. 55

    Lots of men do like hairy legs…on other men. Right Hilton??



  56. 56

    really tho this is kinda sad…..she thinks she's so worthless that she doesn't deserve someone to love her enough not to sleep around….yeah, she can rationalize it all she wants, but everyone knows better. Sad!!!



  57. 57

    I think she is fab! Strong, beautiful, funny and smart. And if you are going to have hairy legs, well be proud and dont hide. Refreshing that she isnt as vain as most everyone else.
    Hope you take home the oscar MoNique!



  58. 58

    Marriage is about way more than sex so is intimacy. For all of you who rate your marriage higher than Mo'nique just because you would never let your husband stray a little. you're focusing on the wrong thing. Sex is just another physical function. What's important is sharing your lives honestly, working toward the same goals and commiting your lives (not always your bodies) to each other. This doesn't sound one sided, I think she has the same opportunities to sleep with other men if she chooses. If this works for them then it works for them and who are we to criticize.



  59. 59

    Re: Tobotv2 – I'm a Mediterranean girl and I know exactly what you mean. I DO wax my legs, and i love the feeling when they are smooth, but it is so hard to keep it up when your hair is so coarse, black and curly. I wish people wouldn't be so judgmental. Its often a racial thing, not a choice.



  60. 60

    If Tiger were married to Monique he wouldn't have gotten his ass beat. She's ok with cheating.Husband must be gay though.



  61. 61

    I just threw up. Gross. And she has an "open" marraige because thats the only way she can keep a man. Let him sleep with skanks on the side.



  62. 62

    Re: Meedee72 – I agree with you. No man is "friends" with a woman for 25 years then marries her in an "open marraige". Monique may just be the black Liza Minelli.



  63. 63

    Re: Paris France – Hey girl, I totally agree!



  64. 64

    He's gay anyways…



  65. 65

    the only reason it's okay for her husband to sleep around is because she is obviously very insecure…..why eles would it be okay for him to and not her? which either one cheating is morally WRONG! getting married is agreeing to be committed (which also means faithful) to the person whom you're marrying.

  66. ei says – reply to this


    66

    is she fucking crazy?? let him screw someone else? why would a woman have such a low opinoin of herself to allow her marriage partner to do that? has it occured to her that her husband has the best of 2 worlds and she is allowing it?? ever think of vd or stds?? how about a pregnancy by some whore who will take money from her earnings? this whole thing is stupid mo nique will be the only loser in this marriage.



  67. 67

    Kudos to her! I hope that whoever came up with the idea that women having hairy legs, which is only natural, is unacceptable, is burning in hell.



  68. 68

    Gross



  69. 69

    Just imagine what her twat looks like?



  70. 70

    noy buying it….plus shave yer freakin legs.



  71. 71

    I FUCKING LOVE THIS WOMEN! YES! POWER TO THE FEMINIST! SHE CAN DO WHATEVER THE FUCK SHE WANTS AND DOESN'T CARE! THAT IS A REAL WOMEN! GOOOO MONIQUE!



  72. 72

    Gotta love these one-sided "open marriages"



  73. 73

    LOL her bush must be fuckin dredlocked



  74. 74

    pffffft….. shaving is about looking prepubescent - you can keep your barbie doll pedophilia beauty standard. i have no trouble finding fine men who could not care less about the leg hair.



  75. 75

    Re: Mrs. Palin-Carmody – Yeah, if the woman wanted to screw other guys the husband would never agree to it.



  76. 76

    im sorry to break it to you sweets but if your husband wants to go boink someone else, he is not in love with you.
    YOU ARE DEMEANING ALL WOMEN and maybe even the entire marriage institution BY SAYING ADULTERY IS OK
    my entire view on u has changed, youve always seemed like a powerful level headed woman. I dont like u anymore…



  77. 77

    What's next for her hair arm pits! Shave your freeken legs Monique!



  78. 78

    sounds smart and refreshing, fuck the haters



  79. 79

    She's full of shit. He has gayface.



  80. 80

    Basically she's saying… no, I have no cheating on my husband. But if my husband has or does cheat on me, I won't end the marriage because I am so desperate that no matter what he does I will tolerate it and stay married.

    How could she "not" know if he has had sex outside of "his" marriage to her? makes no sense! If your so close and comfortable with one another, I would think sexual relations with others would definitely be discussed.

    I think she's just hairy and fat and ugly… of course cheating isn't a deal breaker, she's trapped a man and has no plans of being alone no matter what. Its called insecurity.



  81. 81

    She doesn't shave her legs ? It's painful ??? Yes, a LOT of black people have PROBLEMS with shaving. The shaving isn't the problem. It's after the shaving, when the problems begin. Shaving side effect could be unending pain.



  82. 82

    Straight up foolishness! There is no point of getting married. I bet she will be singing a different tune if he brings home another child or a disease.



  83. 83

    Every human being has the ABILITY to stay faithful to their spouse, partner, girlfriend/boyfriend, w/e. It may be hard and would take alot of work but its possible. Except, for whatever reasons a good portion choose not to. I don't care what scientist says its in our DNA to 'cheat'. We're humans. Our morality and our ability to make decisions is what separates us from the animals.



  84. 84

    He's one freaky man if he likes hairy legs



  85. 85

    stupid woman.



  86. 86

    i srsly think he likes hairy legs bcz it reminds him of a man. i'm feeling a little beep beep on my gaydar. another star jones relationship happening here.



  87. 87

    Helloooooo…..sounds like her hubby is gay! Thay have been best friends for 25 years….since they were still in school. She don't mind if he sleeps with someone else?…..he's gay. Who knows…she may be gay too.



  88. 88

    Re: UberBlingRe: DebDebs

    If it's painful for her to shave her legs then it's probably also painful for her to shave her armpits too! lol



  89. 89

    Hairy legs on a woman are just disgusting, we don't live in Europe, or some caribbean country, shave or wax but do something with those awful hairy legs!….ugh



  90. 90

    hahah lucky her! shaving is annoying



  91. 91

    PEOPLE COME ON - SHE HAS AN HONEST MARRIAGE
    SHE IS ALSO ALLOWED TO SLEEP WITH OTHER PEOPLE IF SHE WANTS
    IT IS BETTER THAN ALL THE SECRET AND LIES, WE ALL KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS LIED OF CHEATED SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY PEOPLE CHEAT,

    THEY HAVE AN AGREEMENT AND IT IS NOT THE SEX THAT KEEPS THEM TOGETHER IT IS THE LOVE, THEY LOVE EACH OTHER AND KNOW FROM TIME TO TIME THEY WILL BE ATTRACTED TO OTHER PEOPLE.

    TO ME THEY HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS AND IT IS WORKING FOR THEM, NO ONE IS CRYING SAYING HIS CHEATING ON ME ETC ETC, SHE CAN CHOOSE TO SLEEP WITH A HOT GUY IF SHE WANTS, SHE JUST HASNT TAKEN THE OFFER YET……………………….YOU GO GIRL



  92. 92

    So she's just a pushover. Okay …. if it works for you ….
