Did You Know?


Mo'Nique and Dorien Wilson are the only cast members to appear in every episode of the series. Had it not been for her pregnancy and giving birth, it's very likely that Countess Vaughn would've appeared in every episode as well. See more »


Technically speaking, there is no way Kim, Nikki, Stevie, and T could have spent five years as students at Santa Monica College. Santa Monica College in reality is only a two year junior college. See more »

This is definitely my favorite comedy show of the decade...
19 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen almost all the episodes on BET, and I hope it comes out on video. I think it's the funniest show to come out in the new millennium and I wish it never ended. Fortunately, we can still see it on BET, but mark my words, it'll take its rightful place on DVD and on TV Land or Nick at Nite in the years to come. I also love Mo'Nique because she is the only role model for (BBW) big, beautiful women.

One of my favorite episodes was the Tae Bo episode, and also when Shaq came on the show. I love all of Mo'Nique and Andell's antics as well as Kim's "ka-yut" personality and marvelous singing voice. And Boo, is really hot. Worth fighting for. There are so many memorable episodes, that if you haven't been fortunate enough to see it, you must check it out. It is hilarious and loads of fun.
