Mo’Nique Reportedly Working on New BET Show

BET disappointed Mo’Nique fans when they cancelled her late night talk show in 2011. Since then, the comedian has laid low on the professional front, but continues to motivate her Twitter followers with daily fitness updates. Today (July 10), rumors are swirling that the Academy Award winner has reunited with the network to develop a new show. Although both parties remain mum on details, it comes as no surprise since Mo’Nique has worked extensively with BET in the past as host of their annual awards show.

During a recent interview with Hot 97, she called the talk show “one of the greatest experiences of [her] life.”

“We wanted folk to go to bed and feel good. Those two years were amazing. I wish I could give you the answer. I honestly don’t know what happened with the Monique Show. You should maybe ask Ms. Debra Lee because I don’t wanna assume. I can’t give you an answer to that,” she explained.
