Mo’Nique Talks Open Marriage on ‘The Preachers’

Mo’Nique isn’t afraid to speak her mind. The Oscar-winning actress has spoken candidly about everything from her weight loss and relationship, to her decision to do things her way in Hollywood.

Since marrying her husband Sidney Hicks in 2006, the couple has also been very transparent about having an “open” relationship, something many can’t understand.

Some people criticized the couple’s decision arrangement, arguing Mo’Nique acquiesced to her husband’s decision to engage with other relationships with women just to keep him.

Recently, Mo’Nique and her husband appeared on The Preachers, a new daytime talk show featuring some of the country’s most prominent pastors, to set the record straight.

When it comes to who brought up the idea of an open marriage in the first place, Mo’Nique said it was her choice.

“When we first came out with it, people said, ‘Oh my God, how could Mo’Nique let that man do that to her?'” the actress said of her critics.

“It was my idea,” Mo’Nique said plainly. “I wanted to be open and honest with the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with,” she explained.

Apparently, it’s been working out for the pair so far. A decade after jumping the broom, the couple is still together and going strong.
