On Thurs., Oct. 13 Mo’Nique made the cover of the November 2016 issue of SHEEN Magazine showing off her slimmer figure in a gold, dazzling dress. The issue not only covers the beautiful results, but it also reveals the hard work blood, sweat and heels that the hollywood actress had to put in to reach her goal.
Mo’Nique openly spoke about her exercise routine on the talk show The Preachers where she mentions that her husband was her inspiration for losing the weight. She goes further into saying ”I’ve been dancing. I love to dance, and when your are a certain size people underestimate you and take you as a joke.
