'Precious' Star Mo'Nique

Sues Landlord

My House Smells Like Dog Crap!

Academy Award-winning "Precious" actress Mo'Nique is suing her landlords in Georgia -- demanding she be let out of her $22,000-a-month rental contract ...because her house smells like dog feces.

Mo'Nique filed the papers in Fulton County in response to her landlords' lawsuit -- which claims the actress bailed on her two-year lease agreement, signed in March, and owes $370,000 in unpaid rent and other charges.

But Mo says it's all crap ... literally ... insisting there's a damn good reason she's walking out on the rental contract -- the house stinks of dog feces, wet dog, and urine (of unknown origin) ... not to mention an overflowing septic tank.

But it doesn't end there -- according to Mo'Nique, the house also had a bad mold problem and the security gate was busted.

Mo'Nique claims she struck a verbal agreement with the landlords, allowing her to renege on her contract with 60 days notice because of all the problems -- but Mo' claims her landlords aren't living up to their word.

It's unclear if Mo'Nique has since moved out. Calls to both sides have not been returned.

$22k/month? Acting may not last forever.

You can imagine the Jabba the Hutt's lair smelled similarly and you didnt hear him complaining! Or Chet from Weird Science.

I just remembered that Monique doesn't shave her legs. She appeared at an award ceremony wearing a dress and she looked like a tarantula from the waist down. Her smelly house is probably the result of poor personal hygiene.

OK, so something definitely smells fecal. We can all agree on that. Now let me just put this out there: is it possible that the odor of excrement is actually emanating from Monique herself? You know, because she's a big fat slob who might not be clean in the bathroom ha ha.

Nothing about this story makes sense to me. That includes the question of-if it's this bad, why she didn't realize it in a New York minute and move out immediately.

Maybe she should try living somewhere she can afford so she won't have to skip out on the rent.

Didn't Michael Jackson rent a mansion? Renting by celebrities is probably not as uncommon as one would think, especially since their work could take them almost anywhere.

Wait a minute... $22.000 a month?! No wonder all these actors end up destitute.
