Mo'Nique's talk show put on hiatus

Academy Award winning actress Mo'Nique is about to have more time on her hands.

BET has confirmed to CNN that her late night chat fest, "The Mo'Nique Show," has been placed on hiatus.

The show, which has been on for two seasons, will continue through the summer the network said.

"'The Mo’Nique Show' will be on production hiatus beginning in the fall," according to a statement from BET. "However, new episodes of the show will continue to air throughout the summer. Mo’nique Hicks and 'The Mo’Nique Show' are important to the Network and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her."

But the actress may not be out of work for long.

Variety reports that she's in talks to play a supporting role in the indie dramedy "Bumped," starring Katie Cassidy, Alex Gonzalez and Xenia Siamas.

    I though BET had changed their name to NTV.

    What happened to the good shows for black people like "The Jeffersons"? Why are black people forced to watch some crappy talkshow hosted by Shirley from "What's Happenin'?"

    MR. "THE ARYAN" I ASK YOU, SO YOU THINK GEORGE BUSH WAS AN EXPERIENCED BUSINESS MAN AND IS MORE CAPABLE OF RUNNING THIS COUNTRY THAN PRESIDENT OBAMA? HA HA HA, YOU MAKE ME LAUGH. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHITE PEOPLE THINK THAT A BLACK PERSON HAS TO BE 100 TIMES MORE COMPETENT THAN A WHITE PERSON TO TO MEASURE UP TO THEIR STANDARDS. PRESIDENT OBAMA IS MORE INTELLIGENT THAN ALL OF THOSE "WHITE REPUBLICAN LEADERS PUT TOGETHER. MR. "THE ARYAN" I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE BUT YOU'D BETTER THINK AGAIN 'CAUSE THIS AIN'T THE 'OLE SOUTH ANYMORE. HAVE A GOOD DAY.

    I would love to know how this article about Monique's show turned into a "racial/political" issue? This is truly sad. The Monique Show has been a breathe of fresh air to BET, hopefully the break will allow her to come back renewed and refreshed.

    I can't believe that these single digit I-Q people read anything on CNN.com. I would have thought that CNN drew more an intelligent group of people. "You People" who made those comments about Oprah and Monique are a bunch of idiots. Why are "You People" so afraid of intelligent and successful African Americans. This country would be much better off if it would allow our first African American President, President Obama to govern the nation the way that it should be governed but, again "You People" are so afraid of a strong, intellegent African American that you'd rather this country to go to hell than to give in to what President Obama advises is best for this country. Again I ask, what the hell are "You People" so afraid of.

      Obama is the reason we're still going downhill. There has been no "change" for the better. We need an experienced businessman leading our country, not a socialist "community organizer" lawyer with no practical experience running any kind of business. I know plenty of black folks who are sorry they voted for this disaster. Defeat Obama in 2012!

      "Obama is the reason we're still going downhill" – The guy before him had nothing to do with it I guess?

      "I know plenty of black folks" – Firstly, really? You don't really expect anyone to believe that statement, hell you don't even buy it. Secondly, if you can count on one hand how many "black folks" you know you're still a racist. Finally, "black folks" that says it all. I put to you that you’re a small minded country redneck that has no real grasp of the society that surround you other than having views that have been passed down to you from your forefathers before you. Where you taught as a child to hate black people? You are clearly damaged and I feel nothing but sorrow for your soul and that of you children as I fear that as your young mind was warped theirs undoubtedly will be too.

    Shaniqua– Ignore the racists. They have lost their mind since Obama got into office and just can't hold it in any longer. They jump on EVERY chance to play computer commando because they are too chickensh*& and scared of their own shadows to say any of that crap about blacks TO blacks in person!

      If you people didn't act so stupid, there would be no racism. You yourselves play the race card every chance you get. Speaking proper English instead of Ebonics would help so much to improve your lives. You are where you are because of your own poor choices. Stop whining and do something about it.
