Mo’Nique’s brother Gerald and parents made an appearance on Oprah to discuss the sexual abuse and how he was a “Monster” for molesting a 7-year-old child. Continue…

I hope you get the help you need brother. You made the first step by admitting you had/have a problem.
Sadly, chances are you won’t get any support but will be persecuted. SMH.
Okay but why did he do this after his sister won her Oscar, you think this ish is going to make your sick a-ss famous. Someone should set him on fire and let Monique decide whether to put his a-ss out.
All out the woodwork…Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems ain’t neva lied…Monique stackin’ that cheese now for real…NOW all her “relations” coming out like diarrhea..can’t hold it in..just gotta go RUNTELLDAT all isms…”Family”..naw..”people”..never cease to amaze me….
i hate rapist and people of his nature
And that knot on the side of his head was very distracting. 😦
Well, I guess this might help others get the courage to discuss and apologize for molestation that took place in the past and molestation that might possibly be ongoing currently. Interesting, I wonder how much older is he than her and at what age did it start and end.
Finally someone actually admitting to sexually abusing a child. I get so sick of people (especially black people and even more surprising women) acting as if people just pull sexual abuse out of their a$$ to get some attention. As far as this guy right here…well I have very little sympathy as usual.
@KEEP IT REAL- It started when she was 7 years old and continued for a full year when his parents moved him back in.
I agree since all the dirt was coming out he should have told WHO molested him as well. Mo played the hell out of Precious’ mother. She drew pain from way down deep. As ignorant as her character was see took it there. Mo I hope this helps you heal. You said you had expereienced abuse and many didn’t believe you. I applaud your courage and bravery.
“Instead of trying to help both of them they basically swept it under the rug trying to pretend that everything was going to be alright and they wonder why she is not speaking to them now.”
Mo’Nique’s story is one that has occurred in many families in our community, but the stories of many individuals are never heard, and they’ve been left to cope with their pain alone. I’ve only seen the snippet of the show when Mo’Nique’s brother addresses the molestation, but I was amazed that he seemingly thinks that his relationship with his sister can be somehow magically restored. He struck me as being in deep denial of the deep psychological impact of his violation of his sibling.
Sexual abuse and other dysfunctional behavior is still considered a taboo subject among us. I think with the changes over the years with the media, we’re hearing about more cases involving the mistreatment of children, but abuse is nothing new in a number of families — just hidden.
hidden or more like denial? Kinda like “don’t ask don’t tell” It’s sad for the victim because the issue of credibility comes into play. But children are so honest to a fault until adults shut them down emotionally and physically.
I know that Monique doesn’t speak to her mom or dad. Her mom tried to say it wasn’t because of the abuse. But I believe that was part of the reason why. They seemed like they didn’t want to believe her.
I will pray for Monique because she is strong and courageous.
lol at Sepia830…lol at the knot
i just am lovin sister mo’nique 100% more!!! will support her and give her love in whatever she does [even though i had trouble with her ghetto show in the beginning] will stand beside now! she DESERVES every ounce of goodness in her life .. hell, let her win the powerball too – she deserves it to have had that CREEP on her .. my gawd and her parents and brother? spooky family, i wonder how many other family members were at the hands of these perfected brothers!!
“hidden or more like denial?”
I believe both. I’m sure most of us have heard of stories in which victims have come forward, only to be accused of lying, attempting to hurt the family, or to simply keep quiet about what they suffered. There is still a pathological form of thinking among some of us that convinces individuals that if they do not talk about what happened, then, somehow, it never occurred. Or that it’s better to be silent, then to risk having a relative/family friend/etc. prosecuted or bring “public shame” to the family.
This may be tangential to the subject of the thread, but when the news of the 7-year-old who was sexually a-s-s-a-u-l-t-e-d first broke, I spent time reading articles about the crime, as well as reactions from readers, and one post, in particular, struck me. It was written by a man, I believe, who refused to believe that a black person was capable of such depraved brutality, that people in our community don’t violate young children in such a manner. The sad reality is, what happened in that apartment building is the story of a number of other young black girls.
What happened to Mo’Nique has happened to other sisters (as well as some brothers), and, perhaps, by her coming forward, they will also be encouraged to have their voices heard – despite any fears they may have of a backlash and other repercussions – and to go through the long process of healing.
Oprah’s creepy self like stuff likt this. Did anyone noticed the way she sat there and smirked the whole time. As far as I am concerned Monique won an Oscar now it’s time to be humiliated on Oprah sounds MK-Ultra to me. Go check out Oprah smirk, Oprah was loving every minute of him discussing what he did to Monique. Thats the type of wicked witch oprah is
” but I was amazed that he seemingly thinks that his relationship with his sister can be somehow magically restored” SYDNEY
Hey, girl, the original comment was written by Ms. Fefe M-Rodgers 😉 but SO TRUE!!!! I was shocked at how he actually thinks that they can have a “normal” brother and sister relationship. I totally understand about forgiving, because God knows I’m not perfect and if he can forgive me for my wrongdoings/sin, then I can do the same. HOWEVER, I know that in my learning of forgiving it also does not mean that one has to have a relationship with someone, because sometimes it is better to love from a distance or in some cases totally separate yourself in order to keep your peace.
And this is why Ièm afraid of having children! The world we live in is seriously fu.cked up!
I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND HER SMIRK .. WHY DID YOU THINK SHE WAS LOVING IT? WASN’T SHE ALSO MOLESTED? IT BOTHERED ME, BUT I DIDN’T KNOW WAS SHE SMIRKING BECAUSE SHE WAS NERVOUS OR KINDA LIKED THE FACT THAT MONIQUE WAS MOLESTED??? WHAT I DID FIND VERY VERY WEIRD WAS THE FACT THAT SHE SOUNDED LIKE SHE COULD HAVE BEEN A FAMILY MEMBER, VERY QUICK TO FORGIVE AND HELP HIM WITH HIS WORDS .. WHOSE SIDE WAS SHE REALLY ON .. GUESS WHY THE SMIRK – I JUST THINK SHE’S EVIL ALONG WITH ALL HER ILLUMINATI CELEB FRIENDS
i do not leave my kids with ANYONE and they know to tell mama and only mama about ANYTHING AND ANYONE [yup, including daddy] that touches them down there or makes them touch them down there and that mom will KILL anyone, so when someone says they’ll kill them or hurt them, know that mommy will do it first – they know my police friends with big guns!! and about sitting on laps .. not going to happen – they are on it – when cousin wanted to wash them up, they simply told them they can wash themselves and when he insisted, shouted, MOM, HE’S TRYING TO MOLESHETT ME! that did it .. now all family knows no means no ..
Hey EJ!! Thank you. Can you give me the link to it? I went on the Youtube but I only saw clips of the show not the whole thing.
Maybe Oprahs smirk was the audacity of this family not to protect their daughter, and only be concerned about the public knowing their secret. I have not seen it but just a thought. From what I hear, they made excuses right?
Nickey- Here are a few facts
-Oprah does not beleive in God.People like her Russel simmons, jayz….they beleive people can be Gods
-Monique was on her show following the oscars and Oprah said ” I was so proud of you, you did not go up there and thank God like they usually do ( I took “they” as black people)you thanked the academy blah, blah blah, but I want to congradulate you for not thanking God”.
-Oprah Winfery Network/NWO backwards
-Mary J Blige was on her show I think last friday and she told a story about how she was down and out in life and she said she asked God for a sign and she saw the clouds spread and the sun shine through and she knew at that moment God had a plan for her” do you know Oprah was like ” humph, O kaaaaay” as if girl you beleive that. thats all I am going to say
@OBSERVER- I will do my best Ms. Lady. I wish folks would actually record the whole show of something rather than splitting it up in several parts…but, yeah, it just seems that they were more focused on Monique telling their bus-sine-s-s. It just seems that they put more concern and affection towards the “criminal” (though he was never charged, but he still committed a crime against his sister)rather than the victim. That is hurtful.
