Yikes! It looks like Larissa aka “Bootz” from several VH1 produced reality series has an issue with Oscar winner Mo’Nique. Bootz is calling Mo a ‘hypocrite’ in a recent interview where the actress reveals she was allegedly blacklisted by the comedian once upon a time. Larissa feels like Mo’nique’s more recent message of standing up for herself and Black women is all a facade.
Let’s back up a little bit though. If you don’t remember the classic show Flavor Of Love you missed an incredible time in reality TV show history. Bootz was one of the girls competing for Flavor Flav’s love on the show. Shortly after, she transitioned over to Charm School Of Love, a spin-off of the series which would teach the cast proper etiquette skills in return for a grand cash prize and the title of “Charm School Queen.” Mo’Nique was the host of the hit TV show.
While interviewing with Lacie Sculls from “Talk Of Love”, Bootz told a story about the time she was asked to not attend an event due to Mo’nique not wanting her there. Apparently, this message got to Larissa through her then publicist.
Still obviously upset about it, Larissa told her side of the story. Hit play to hear:
Interesting. Mo’nique wasted no time addressing the rumors. “Y’all should be ashamed of yourself”, she wrote underneath the comments of The Shade Room’s post, addressing the situation.
Fans have dug up clips of Mo’Nique and Bootz interacting on “Charmed School”, which aired over a decade ago. Did these two look like that had tension to you? In this moment from the show, the two appear to have had it out for each other even back then. Bootz appeared on a recent Instagram live interview where she recounted her and Mo’nique’s past drama and things got heated!
Do YOU think there’s truth to Bootz story?
