HSM Act 2: Mo Mo  
Why did we stop with this? Let's resume this series pronto!

Monique Adrienne Coleman

Known aliases
Mo, Mo Mo, Walking gun show

Nov 13, 1980, Orangeburg, SC

Special talents
Pretty much everything. Woman has written a book about her life and knows how to fly on a trapeze. A trapeze!

Key quote
"I was babysitting the night High School Musical premiered last year. I watched with the kids and we sang along to the lyrics. I was making $12 an hour."

Monique presents a bit of a challenge for us. While she’s the one with the smallest entourage, we think she’s pretty talented and oozing with charm and class. The odds may be against her, but we are rooting for the underdog. Momo, we hardly know you! Don’t go just yet!

She’s a smart lady- completed high school and college and everything! We anticipate her taking strong but not necessarily star-making roles to build a credible acting career. She may fall off the radar for a few years and then re-surface on a sleeper hit TV show. Maybe something procedural? But then, we don’t see why ABC Family can’t give her a pilot. They gave one to a Mowry twin, why not MoCo?

But… then again… MoCo is a smart lady. And as the only HSM kid to actually struggle to make it as an actor before finally landing the plum role, she knows the value of a dollar. Her participation on Dancing With the Stars, while fabulous and a terrific example of her hard work, also demonstrates her willingness to do what she has to do. We might also see her taking a Tori Spelling approach to celebrity- a tell all book here, a reality show there, and a handful of guest appearances on highly rated teen shows. We would still love it- just for different reasons.

Bu then back to the other hand, Mo is the least visible and therefore the least well known. She could easily re-invent herself and “break free” in a brand new project in a whole new genre with HSM as a funny anecdote to relate at interviews.

Regardless, she will continue to build up her immense arm strength. And she’s still the one we would most like to invite to share a bottle of wine and some fried food with a side of Hollywood gossip.

(Totally off topic now: did anyone see Star Trek? OMGSQUEE!)

Man, to be honest I haven't even seen 17 Again. No interest! That is how far I've fallen off the HSM wagon. I don't know if M has been as sacriligeous as I have though.
Heather: SNLmoviesurfer on May 17th, 2009 04:39 am (UTC)
17 again was pretty good actually...I watched it TBH cause I FLove the actors that played Zac's characters 'kids'

I'm confused about the wagon. Is it when we resist Disney or when we don't watch it enough?

I would say I'm in Disney Detox. Did you know that there's a whole channel dedicated to Oprah?
pastaprimavera: Trek: Bones 2pastaprimavera on May 19th, 2009 04:53 am (UTC)
Being on the wagon = caring about Disney.
Falling off = not caring anymore.

Although, we could call it being "on the monorail" if that makes it easier.

I too am in Disney Detox. Have you seen the Star Trek film yet? :)

I loved Star Trek. My parents are closet Trekkies and they loved it.

I would probably bet that MoMo would write a book about the inside world of Disney and I'd totally read it too.
pastaprimavera: Trek: Kirk 3pastaprimavera on May 17th, 2009 02:26 pm (UTC)
I would read anything MoMo writes. Honestly, why do Vanessa get to be on the cover of Self when Mo is the only one with a real self to talk about? Same question re: Tizz on Shape's cover. Um, hello?


Star Trek ruled. I'm obsessed. Have you seen ontd_startrek?
tejal: friends: rosssparkagrace on May 17th, 2009 10:17 pm (UTC)
I haven't! Thanks for the link. I shall waste precious studying-moments studying Chris Pine.
Mm_alicious on May 19th, 2009 02:27 am (UTC)
Be careful... if Star Trek is a drug, Pasta is your dealer. Stand by for the start of "Appropriately Aged Trekkie."
pastaprimaverapastaprimavera on May 19th, 2009 04:56 am (UTC)
To be quite honest, I do not know what to do with the Star Trek fanning. I'm currently pretty happy to lurk and enjoy other people's picspams and the like!
Mm_alicious on May 19th, 2009 04:29 pm (UTC)
It's nice letting someone else do the work.

Can I still get the coffee?
Mm_alicious on May 20th, 2009 03:31 am (UTC)
I don't think either one of us remembers how to make coffee... so I think we have to take you wherever we go.
DD: [hsm] modreamon_dreamer on May 17th, 2009 02:33 pm (UTC)
yay, glad you started these up again with her. i totally agree, she could go any number of ways as far as her career. i'd love to see her on tv.
wow, i can't believe she's going to be 30 next year. she doesn't look it, at all.
did anyone ever find out more ab her book? i really need for it to be released; i'd buy it in a heartbeat.
i'm going to see star trek this evening :D
pastaprimaverapastaprimavera on May 17th, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
We have these all written, so I don't know why we just haven't gotten around to posting them! No matter, they're up now.

And I think I'm going to start being a bit more committed to the community -- I've been quite absentee around here and it's time for some love. (Ooh -- famous last words?)

Okay, and watch Star Trek and then come back and squee! There is no way you're not going to like it :)

awesome. i could always use some more of you and M's brand of comedy.

oh, i know i'm going to love it. i'm a bigtime trekkie :)
DD: [tv] voyagerdreamon_dreamer on May 18th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
ahem: SQUEEEEEEEEEE! it was SO amazing.
pastaprimaverapastaprimavera on May 18th, 2009 06:45 am (UTC)
I know :) So good!
DD: [movie] nyotadreamon_dreamer on May 20th, 2009 07:19 pm (UTC)
srsly, if i wasn't a spock/kirk friendship fan before, i def am now. they're awesome and hilarious together.
spock/uhura kind of intrigued me even, and i wasn't completely expecting that. still wish they would've shown uhura more in her own light and not just with spock.
zachary made me a definite spock fan and that i REALLY wasn't expecting, since i still see skylar whenever i see him, and get pissed all over again at all the time i wasted watching the first season of heroes. but i think the blinders are finally coming off and i can now enjoy the quinto effect.
the cinematography was kickass and i loved the cast chemistry that grew as the movie advanced. simon pegg was great. that shot of all the characters from the original series near the end of the movie made my heart flip.
have you heard that jj is making another? so excited!

Yes, apparently they're all signed on for 3 movies! I can't wait. I feel exactly as you do about the film: Spock/Kirk ftw! And I didn't even like the original series: I was a TNG girl myself.
DD: [tv] staydreamon_dreamer on May 21st, 2009 05:51 am (UTC)
omg, 3? music to my ears. i'm a VOY girl. i think i've seen maybe one original series eppy all the way through. but i now have a strong desire to do a marathon of the entire series' dvds :) i'm actually still up bc i'm making star trek icons, lol. it won't leave me alone!

also, chekov was one of my other fave things ab the movie. i heart him.
DD: [hsm] this dancedreamon_dreamer on May 20th, 2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
the book.
asking about the book worked i think, bc i came across this blurb:

...and High School Musical’s Monique Coleman, who’s writing an advice book called From Ramen Noodles to the Red Carpet: A Guide to Becoming Who You Are Without Forgetting Who You Were.

from here: http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/ecollywood/stories/ecollywood-the-cast-of-the-new-terminator-goes-green

tried searching on amazon and googling, but didn't come up with any further info. but at least there's a title! hopefully this is a timely update, and not old news, which would mean i've just been slacking on keeping up with her.

pastaprimaverapastaprimavera on May 21st, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
Re: the book.
How bizarre that they would reference the book! I don't think anyone's talked about it since that one blurb I wrote about like 2 years ago. MoMo, get it out already---I'll drive it up the Amazon charts myself!
DD: [hsm] otpdreamon_dreamer on May 21st, 2009 05:52 am (UTC)
Re: the book.
yeah, it was very random. but at least a mention means it's still in the works! i hope it's released soon.
Mm_alicious on May 19th, 2009 02:29 am (UTC)
Yeah... I was supposed to post this weeks ago, huh? Please don't lock me in the closet with Miley. I promise to post Lucas this week, cross my mouse glove fingers and hope to die.
pastaprimaverapastaprimavera on May 19th, 2009 04:30 am (UTC)
No no, I think this one is on me --- you did post the Tizz one last.
