Profile Information

Name
Tha Original Gata™, Monique Dupree
About Me
Newark, NJ native Monique Dupree (also known by the title ‘Tha Original Gata™' and in some circles is referred to affectionately as ‘The First Black Scream Queen.’) is without question a force to be reckoned with in the universe of fringe/genre entertainment.
Whether it’s in independent horror films, fetish, comic-book, catalog and/or alternative modeling, local and national reality television or even her occasional cross-over into mainstream television and cinema she has carved an enduring and prestigious legacy that persist and interjects itself into more and more fascists of the entertainment industry as well as popular culture with every passing day and accomplishment.
This would include; Music by way of her band Negro Childe, publishing, promotion, internet radio, fitness, production and pro-wrestling.
Monique shows no signs of stopping or slowing in her continuous media rise, while maintaining a marriage and mothering eight children in a family with more than a few promising careers at varying levels of evolution aside from her own. As well as being involved in several grass-root charities and social outreach organizations.
To date Monique (two time tromette) has completed upward of seventy films and television projects, inspired the creation of several comic-book heroines and consistently works and is for hire across the country and around the world.

WHAT DOES "THE ORIGINAL GATA" MEAN?
"Gata" (spanish for cat) is used as a descriptive for my cat totem. The eternal spirit of the cat is worshipped by some ancient cultures, and seen as the ambassadors to the after life. Like the egyptian Goddess Bast or Sekhmet for example, I'm an aspect of that energy. Its present in many. It is, was and always will be Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, Josephine Baker, Betty Page....Monique Dupree...
Monique Dupree was also interviewed on Maxim Radio for the "Hotties of Horror" in 2008

I AM NOT MY HAIR

Posted on May 20, 2013 at 1:48pm 0 Comments

Greetings people

Well we all express ourselves in different ways. But no doubt, our hair is one of those forms in which we express ourselves. Recently, I came across afew really touching stories about little girls with cancer and how they deal with being bald. I saw on a facebook page that a parent said she had wished someone would come up with a princess in their image (her daughter and countless others like her) It was then I got the idea to put together a shoot for them.…

hello and how are you and how everything with you?

Back at you!  I've been away for a minute! LOL Time for me to fix that!

At 2:10pm on August 14, 2012, Patrick Chappelle said…

Thanks for the add, sis! I'm only now discovering your (*ahem*) body of work, and I'm impressed thus far with what I've seen. Soon I hope to have a collection of your film appearances.

I'm doing great :) how are you?

Is that you & the tremedous Tony Todd?! (bows) We are not worthy! Respect.

At 4:24pm on January 7, 2012, VOODOO JEEPEE said…

 RASPECT !!!!!

At 7:16pm on January 2, 2012, Spookycreep said…

  Crap! Give me another second. I just typed out a message to you but the dumb machine wouldn't send it. Once again from the top (never thought I'd ever get to say that to an actress).

At 8:01am on January 2, 2012, Spookycreep said…

Thank you for accepting my request and I look forward to talking to you too. The chance to talk to some one with your background in Horror (and alternative culture in general) reminds me of the line from the Iggy Pop song "Fun Time": Last night I was down in the lab/ talking to Dracula and his crew/ All aboard for fun time!

At 4:12am on December 29, 2011, Spookycreep said…

  Just listened to a couple of your songs. Yeah, you rock. I want to hear more.
