I am a huge fan of the Monique, her show she looks fabulous, and for being a plus size girl myself, I adore the clothes she wears. However, does Monique have a hearing problem? With all that yelling it has become somewhat annoying ok extremely annoying. She is slowly losing me and I am sure some other fans as well. Some radio stations are having comments sent with all the yelling on her show.
Please Monique tone it down a bit. Love

I have watched "The Monique Show" since it first aired on BET TV and have found it very entertaining, refreshing, real and satisfying to watch, as well as to be able to laugh, because Monique seems so able to do her thing, which includes spreading a whole lot of cheer and helping me/us laugh, as well as watch and listen to many of the really good guest who have been on her show thus far. The Monique Show has made it possible for me, as well so many other people to feel good about watching her (Monique) looking good and sharing a lot of good and much needed information over the TV, and all that is good. But why does Monique have to be so loud during each show that I have watched and/or listened to. Why does Monique keep yelling and acting like she's trying so hard to get the attention of someone or something? I mean ..., Monique is already the host of that show right? People, including myself, immediate, as well as extended and/or many of my other family members, relatives, friends that I know have watched and enjoyed most of The Monique Show, except when it comes (they've told me, and I fully agree)to Monique yelling all the time, or at least during most of the time that her show is on in the Washington, D.C. area, where I live and work. Please, can Monique stop so much yelling all the time, because she is, I believe going to lose me, as well as a lot of of other people who really want to watch her show, as well as see Monique on that channel doing what she does so well. Monique's clothes look great on her, and she really looks lovely, but she has got to act like a lady sometime or another, and stop acting like a fool, or worse. Please, Monique, tone down, or even better, please stop all that yelling with each and every one of your TV shows.
