“When we first came out with it, everybody said, ‘Oh my God, how could Mo’Nique let that man do that to her’ … It was my idea,” Mo’Nique said on “The Preachers” with her husband.
Mo’Nique has been quite candid about her open marriage with husband Sidney Hicks.
And now the Oscar winner has revealed she was the one who championed the unconventional relationship from the start of their ten-year marriage.
“It was my idea,” she proudly proclaimed during an appearance on the new talk show The Preachers.
The actress – who shares twin sons with Hicks – also shot down nasty rumors that she only opened up their marriage in order to be able to keep “this good looking man.”
“There may be times I want to be with other men,” the Precious star said bluntly, before adding her motivation was out of respect for her husband, “I wanted to be open and honest with the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with.”
While Sidney was completely on board with their arrangement, he’s also not the controlling type. He added: “Who am I to tell her what she can and cannot do?” Or who!
