In case you're wondering what comedian, actress, talk show host Mo'Nique has been up to lately...

Well... it's been over a year since BET cancelled her late night talk show, and over 3 years since her Oscar-winning performance in Lee Daniels' Precious.

Her long-in-development Hattie McDaniel biopic, which she's attached to star in doesn't seem to have made much progress since we first announced it 2 or 3 years ago. Recall that at the time, she said she wanted Lee Daniels to direct it. 

And then there was the indie dramedy titled Bumped, which she was 'in talks' to co-star in last year, but that didn't happen.

So what's Mo'Nique up to these days?

Announced yesterday, Mo’Nique will serve as honorary chairwoman of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s gala benefit performance on November 28.

The evening will kick off the company’s five-week season at City Center and will also feature Ailey’s signature 1960 work “Revelations,” with special guest musicians. Featured vocalists will include the Tony Award-winning actors and singers Audra McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Anika Noni Rose.

I'm sure we're all familiar with those last 3 names - McDonald, Mitchell and Rose.

And for those unaware, The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is a prestigious modern dance company based in NYC, founded in 1958 by African American choreographer and dancer Alvin Ailey.

Ticket and additional information about the gala benefit are available at www.alvinailey.org.
