Good news! Writer Lee Daniels and Oscar-winning actress Mo'Nique needed their 13-year feud. Earlier this week, a video went viral of the two at "Mo'Nique and Friends: April Fools Day with The Queen of Comedy" in Staten Island. In front of a large audience, Lee Daniels apologized to Mo'Nique. He said, "I am so sorry for hurting you in any way that I did."https://twitter.com/PopCrave/status/1510107341508726784?s=20&t=38NOlBbV_5cL8s4nZX7GsgThe two were once friends; however, in 2009, their relationship took a turn after working together on 2009's Precious. Mo'Nique chose not to participate in the film's awards campaign, and she wasn't obligated to in her contract. She reportedly did the movie as a favor to Lee because she was paid $50,000 for the role, and Mo'Nique told CNN she was only contractually obligated to promote the film domestically.Mo'Nique's public dispute with Lee, Oprah Winfrey, and Tyler Perry resulted in her not booking acting gigs. Mo'Nique accused the power players of blackballing her from the movie industry. Mo'Nique said she's been labeled "difficult to work with" and "tactless." However, in 2010, she won an Oscar for Precious for best-supporting actress. Lee confirmed Mo'Nique will co-star in his new Netflix film Demon House, saying, "And we're gonna f*cking do it again!" Mo'Nique will play a social worker helping Andra Day and her family through a controversial exorcism in the upcoming release.Social media reactions:https://twitter.com/callmedollar/status/1510089930982178818?s=20&t=38NOlBbV_5cL8s4nZX7Gsghttps://twitter.com/Amazon_Queenn/status/1510096721497317384?s=20&t=38NOlBbV_5cL8s4nZX7Gsg
