“Open Relationship” is a play on words referring to Mo'Nique's announcement to publications that she and her husband of close to 10 years, Sidney Hicks, have an Open Relationship. Though the real intent behind her statement refers to their long history together, their Open-Minded Relationship simply means that something like an extra-marital affair wouldn't be a deal breaker to their marriage. They build upon the public discussions surrounding this concept to explore the openness and communication that is necessary for us all to have better relationships with others, in anything including Open Relationships, Falling in Love, Discussing Sex with Our Children, and everything in between. As Mo'Nique & Sidney would say, "The mind is like a parachute; it’s no good unless it's open.”

Lady Coco ,

Great Job Monique and Sidney

Every black person in entertainment needs to hear this podcast!!! It’s more of what we need to hear. I’m going to play it again. These words resonate in my mind, I’ve been preaching the same message for years. I’m so glad you are around so the youngsters/newcomers entering in the business and around world know the real truth. When are we going to realize this is really about us and what we can do for ourselves not what we can get from someone else. We can stand together today and prevail or stand alone and fail. It’s our choice.
