MO’NIQUE

Long before she became an Oscar winner for her visceral performance in Precious, the Maryland native’s claim to fame was a raunchy standup act, in which she praised her pleasantly plump supporters and blasted “skinny bitches.” In fact, her outspoken, big-is-beautiful campaign spawned a full figure clothing line, a New York Times bestseller, Skinny Women are Evil, a lead role in the film Phat Girlz and a $13 million fortune. But these days, the funny girl, whose self-titled talk show was put on indefinite hiatus last July, is singing a different tune. Mo’Nique is currently using her free time to get it in at the gym—even tweeting motivational words with pictures and videos of her workouts as she fights to reach her 180-pound goal weight.
