How did Mo’Nique get the role

Since Tyra couldn’t swing it, how did Mo’Nique luck up with the role? She answered that in a Black Film interview

Well, money. (laughter) No, actually I got this movie and it actually just fell into my lap. My agent called me on a Friday and said there is a role in a movie with Vivica Fox if you want it you have to report to work on Monday. So I hadn’t even read the script. So I got there on Monday and I fell in love with the script. Actually, Tyra Banks was supposed to be Deidre. They went so far different, but I actually love that they put a glamour girl in with those tiny-weenie women. I loved that. I loved that Deidre was so close to Mo’Nique. She said what she felt and felt what she said and didn’t care. She loved who she was, she loved her man and was not afraid to talk about sex or anything. She was out there. That is who Mo’Nique is except I wouldn’t wear that cheap jewelry.
