When she hiked up her gown due to the rain at the more recent 2010 Golden Globe Awards, more folks chimed in. Now it's Mo'Nique's turn. On Barbara Walters' upcoming annual Oscars special, the Academy Award Nominee said her hubby actor Sidney Hicks likes her un-shaved legs, NY Daily News reported, "and if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go," she said. Mo'Nique went on to say that she "tried shaving one time, and it was uncomfortable and painful. I said never again would I do that to myself." The "Precious" star also took the time to explain her claims that she and Hicks have an open relationship. "Let me say this: I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney," she makes clear. "Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That's not a deal breaker," she continues. And what if he steps out multiple times? "What if it's been 20 times? So what?
