In the words of Shemar Moore to Susan Lucci when she finally won her daytime Emmy, “the streak is over!”

Director Lee Daniels and Oscar winner Mo’Nique have finally squashed their beef, after not speaking for 13 years.

As seen in footage shared to social media Friday, the Oscar-winning actress was onstage during her “Mo’Nique and Friends: April Fools Day with The Queen of Comedy” event at St. George Theatre on Staten Island.

The clip shows Daniels joining Mo’Nique in front of the crowd and offering a public apology.

“I am so sorry for hurting you in any way that I did,” Daniels said to the comedian, leading her to put her hand to her heart and appear to get emotional. “Y’all, and she was my best friend — my best friend. Y’all think that Precious was just … That was God working, through both of us.”

He continued, “And we’re gonna fucking do it again!” as the two then briefly danced onstage.

As previously reported via Variety, Mo’Nique will star in Daniels’ Demon House for Netflix, the same network she filed a lawsuit against for racial and gender discrimination. She will be replacing Octavia Spencer. Andra Day, Glenn Close and Aunjanue Ellis will star.

After Daniels concluded his onstage moment by telling the star, “I love you,” she also told him she loved him.

Now this is what I love to see, and what we should be celebrating, instead of focusing on that bullshit that happened at the Oscars this past weekend. I know some were wondering if 50 Cent had anything to do with Lee putting his big boy pants on and apologizing to Mo’Nique.

It turns out Ts Madison may have had something to do with the two squashing their beef, since Maddie interviewed Mo on the season finale of her talk show Turnt Out. Maddie has an interview with Lee which you can see on the show’s upcoming second season.
