Mo’Nique said: “It made me say [to myself], <<OK sis, you got these babies. The twins [Jonathan and David] are 7, [stepson] Michael’s 9, Shalon’s 22>>.
“And I want to meet their babies. So, I said, <<Let me stop being selfish, and eating everything>>. And I ate everything . . . I was a food junkie.”
