We're sure it was a hard thing to listen to and watch.
Mo’Nique's brother, Gerald Imes was on The Oprah Winfrey Show earlier this week, attempting to apologize and provide insight on the many years he sexually molested his younger sister.
Though originally she gave Oprah her blessing, sources say that Mo'Nique is "not happy" with the direction the interview took. Supposedly, Mo'Nique feels that her brother lied about many of details about the abuse and was not "sympathetic enough towards her."
In particular, Mo'Nique was upset to hear Gerald claim that he molested his sister while she was asleep. According to sources close to her, she has always said that she was “wide awake and scared of him."
Now, instead of bridging the gap between the family, Mo'Nique is said to want nothing to do with any of them again and refuses to speak to them. She also allegedly declining to appear on Oprah's show again because of how the interview was handled.
Tsk, tsk. Don't take it too personally, O. You might not have asked the right questions, but he's the one who really should feel the shame!
