Quote of the Day: Mo’Nique’s Open Relationship

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here is a quote from Mo’Nique back in 2007 from a NY Times article discussing her open realtionship with husband Sidney Hicks:

We have an agreement that we’ll always be honest, and if sex happens with another person, that’s not a deal breaker for us, that’s not something where we’ll have to say, ‘Oh God, we’ve got to go to divorce court because you cheated on me.’ Because we don’t cheat.

Mo’Nique went on Oprah recently and made some clarifications on her open marriage comment:

When I said I had an open marriage, people automatically jumped to sex. They automatically went there. But I’ve been best friends with my husband since we were 14 years old. When we say open, we’re very honest. There are no secrets. Often times you have people that are married, but they’re strangers, and we refuse to be those people. I’ve had to sneak and I’ve had to lie, and I don’t want to do that any more. But my husband is so awesome and so fine and so—oh, girl. … No other man can compare.

    That definition makes sense, good for her. It’s good to see married couples still going strong, especially in these days.

    I hear ya gurl……..


    hey whatever works…she gotta man and i don’t so who am I to speak on it


    why is he wearing those big 70s serial killer glasses? but on another note .. i believe thats how all relationships should be. personally speaking, i dont think monogamy is an attainable expectation to put out there in a relationship.



  • Lady Architect

    I’m glad their marriage is open with being honest and things….My question is how many times is he allowed to let sex happen with another person before it becomes a deal breaker?…or as long as he comes home and tell you its cool with you?…cause in that case yall should’ve made a roommate agreement and slept with each other at the same time…Iono just a lil weird to me, but it’s her marriage so whateva

  • mr.anderson

    ^^^^^ You speak truth.

  • JusWondering

    Why the hell are you guys visiting again today?? After saying u weren’t gonna come back for them calling maya angelou a “hoe” yesterday?… Hmmm.

  • Corree

    I think her first statement about the open relationship was taken in the exact content in which she gave it: he cheats, and she’s not excited about it, but because she loves him so much, she’ll take him any way she can. She just tried to clean it up on Oprah because everyone was giving her static for saying it. If that’s how they roll, then cool, but keep it real, boo.

    Hmmmm. Hmmmm. It’s open, alright.

    He’s GAY!

    Anybody that respects and agrees with Monique obviously doesn’t understand the meaning of marriage. If you’re going to cheat, there is no point of being married. You can just play house if that is the case.

    Pttybrn – it’s sad that you think that way. But not all relationships consist of cheating. It is possible for two people to love and be faithful to one another.

    @prettymiss..girl, you are so right. I HATE to see women always bashing brothers. I LOVE to see women talk positive about their man.

    Wait…what happened to Professor Oglevee? I thought he was her boo…

  • Lady Architect

    Black Beauty,

    I agree with your comment completely…and why does she need to clarify if she’s so confident in her marriage and what makes it work?…if that’s how you feel then there’s no need to clarify. She know she revealed something that shows her lack of confidence though she says she has so much of it. What happens if 1 of these women get pregnant or he catches something…I swear some people don’t think until it’s too late..She mind as well be a woman who gets abused cause she sound just like 1…
