Steve Harvey and comedian Mo'Nique got into a fight on Steve Harvey's talk show, and Mo'Nique threatened to SLAP Steve - MTO News can confirm.
Mo'Nique appeared on Steve's show on Wednesday. It was supposed to be a friendly interview between two old friends - but the day ended in fireworks.
As soon as the interview began, Mo'Nique tried to steer the discussion towards her new Las Vegas residency, which is at the SLS Hotel in Las Vegas. But Steve had other things that he wanted to discuss.
Steve turned the discussion towards what he called "disrespectful" comments by Mo. He brought up some controversial statements that Mo’Nique has made about popular Black entertainers like Whoopi Goldberg, Tyler Perry and others.
Mo’Nique recently referred to Whoopi as ‘the help’ in an interview, and Steve took offense to the comment. He then tried to pressure Mo'Nique to apologize to Whoopi - and Monique snapped.
According to multiple sources, Mo'Nique stood up and tried to get physical with Steve. Here's how the website Jasmine Brand is describing what happened:
“She threatened to hit Steve in the face. He told her if she hit him, her husband would have to come out and square off.”
MTO News can confirm that Mo'Nique's husband was with her, and prepared to jump on Steve if needed. Luckily, that wasn't needed.
Everything calmed down and Steve and Mo'Nique managed to finish the interview without violence.
But as one audience member told MTO News, "There was a lot of tension in the room. Mo'Nique looked like she was ready to put hands on Steve."
