No Cat Fights In Mo’Nique’s Beauty Pageant

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comedian Mo’Nique now has her own beauty pageant, but she promises it’s not trying overshadow Miss America.

Mo’Nique’s F.A.T. Chance is a plus-sized beauty pageant that airs Saturday (July 15) on the Oxygen network, and while last year’s show was one of the highest- rated shows in the network’s history, she has no plans to crowd out Miss America.

In her words, “There’s enough room [in the beauty pageant world] for a size 2 and a size 22.”

The second year of the pageant means bigger is better: Current contestants stay in a mansion with a chef available 24 hours – though Mo’Nique says it’s not to indulge the large ladies, but “just so they feel happy and valuable.”

There is a reality show portion to the broadcast, but if you think you’ll see a whale of a cat fight between two beefy beauties, fat chance.

As Mo’Nique says, “[Fat women] fight society every day. We don’t have enough time to fight each other.”
