Mo’nique is killing the red carpet this year collecting all her awards for her stellar performance in Precious. Where we should be focused on her “it” girl status in Hollywood; many are more focused on Mo’nique’s hairy legs.
The ladies of The View asked about Mo’nique’s legs and she told them it was a “black thing.”
The virtual discussion was on fire last night on this topic. To join The Love Zone virtual community visit www.ladawnblack.com.
Do you agree with Mo’nique that not shaving is a “black thing?” Feel free to post your comments. Here is what Love Zone listeners had to say via Facebook and Twitter:
Simone – When i first moved here for school years back..one of my good female friends had the legs of a hairy beast. Then one of my male friends told me ..”well, most bmore girls don’t shave their legs because many men here find it attractive”. i just shook my head.
Bryant – Simple and plain! No man’s going to turn down some a– because her legs aren’t shaved. That’s one of those things women think about but men can care less BUT definitely keep the ‘TRIM’ trimmed
Era – Its a personal preference….i dont shave my legs becuz i like the hair on my legs….i did shave it once and i didnt like it….definately not a black thing, i know plenty black women that shave
Seaniece – I believe it is a personal preference and it certainly has nothing to due with being hood. To each its own.
Crystal – I shave ‘religously’ and it doesn’t make me any less black!
Angela – LaDawn, you know we (black women) shave and wax! I do not have thick leg hair, you would have to feel my leg to know that there’s its there but I wax all other body hair! Being properly groomed is very important to black women too! Monique is from Baltimore, she needs to call Gena at Mt. Washington Day Spa!
Donna – Heck NO !!!!! it is a personal choice.I was not taught to shave my legs growimg up but it is a must in this day & time LADIES BLACK OR ANY OTHER RACE PLEASE,PLEASE SHAVE !!!!!!
Antoinette – Hell No- Monique just forgot or don’t give a F!?k! She should of never made that statment-This is not Europe where they think unshave is Sexy- I shave I like a smooth skin- I love Mo but She played herself- You cant stay Hood all the time- Smooches
Tashawn – Hell no…shaving ur legs is a must…not a white or black thing. u might can go without for awhile in the winter as long as ur man doesnt mind but the summer time its definitly a must! lol
Sheronne – No! Plenty of black woman shave. Luckily Im not hairy so I never have to shave (thank goodness) lol. She just need to say she nasty & lazy and stop puttin color in it
Jada – WELL I DONT SHAVE MY LEGS CAUSE BECAUSE IM LAZY OR NASTY…BECAUSE I LIKE MY LEGS WITH HAIR ON THEM…JUST LIKE SOME LADIES DONT LIKE HAIR ON THEIR LEGS..I SHAVE IN ALL THE OTHER PLACES…BUT FORREAL WHO CARES WHAT HER LEGS LOOK LIKE PPL ALWAYS HATIN. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE SEEN MO’NIQUE IN A SKIRT OR DRESS? WORRY ABOUT YOUR INCOME AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU CAN MAKE MONEY LIKE MONIQUE.
