According to reports, tensions rose when they brought up comments the 51-year-old Queens of Comedy star made about Whoopi Goldberg. Mo’Nique referred to The View co-host as “the help,” implying Whoopi’s white counterparts don’t think of her as an important aspect of the show's dynamic.

Mo’Nique’s beef with Whoopi in combination with her ongoing feud with Precious director Lee Daniels, lead the 62-year-old host to believe she was “burning too many bridges.”

Steve’s words to The Parkers star upset her so much she reportedly threatened to slap him. If she did get physical, Steve reportedly warned he would call her husband Sidney Hicks from backstage and challenge him to a fight.

In a clip from the upcoming interview, Mo’Nique told Steve, “This is my brother, and when I heard you go on the air and you said ‘My sister done burned too many bridges and there’s nothing I can do for her now.’ Steve, do you know how hurt I was?”
