This week, Tre’Vell and Jarrett give Mo’Nique the FANTI treatment. After the powerhouse comedian earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Precious, she was well-positioned to land other major roles in studio releases, so…what happened? Are the stories about her being difficult to work with true, or might it have something to do with being a strong black woman from Baltimore not afraid to stand up for herself?
A Tough Question
What’s a single living in the midst of a pandemic supposed to do? Shelter in place… alone? Do single folk no longer get to mix and mingle, Netflix and chill, or have the sex while we’re in the age of the Ronia?

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and Jarrett Hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
