As promised Mo’Nique alongside her husband Sidney went on to premiere the first episode of their podcast series Open Relationship. To get right into things Mo’Nique & Sidney spoke on their relationship and all the controversy surrounding it. Mo’Nique specifically addressed the way society first viewed her relationship with Hicks.
I think that a lot people took it as… here’s this fat black women who has this good looking man and now she’s going to let him do whatever he wants to do, for the sake of saying she has this good looking man. But what nobody knew was that me and this good looking man have been best friends since the 10th grade…. It was not Sidney’s idea to have an open marriage, it was mine…
To specifically address their open relationship, Sidney had something to say to better define what it means to be in a open marriage.
The reality of our relationship is more of a mental mind set….Which one of you out there are able to control someone else’s spirit? Why did James cheat on me? You didn’t know you were in a open relationship, but James felt is was an open relationship. Being in a situation we’re in no one can ever come to us and say your wife did this or your wife did this…It’s not just an open relationship from a sexual standpoint, it’s an open relationship with the dialogue you’re having with your spouse.
