Mo'Nique

Mo'Nique? Please, no mo'


Maybe I'm being a stickler about this, but it should be a rule: You really shouldn't start giving your Emmy speech (or your Lifetime Achievement speech) until you've actually done a show ... or at least part of a show ... or at least told one joke or sung one song or interviewed one person.

This feeling built inside me as I watched the dismal debut of "The Mo'Nique Show," which airs at 11 p.m. weekdays on BET.
