So, late last week, Will and Monifa Sims went viral when they impressed America with a karaoke performance on The Tonight Show's "Pumpcast News" segment. But, because this is a horrible life and we all die alone, The Smoking Gun has done some digging to reveal that the video segment might have been staged.
Will and Monifa are both trained actors who founded a theater company in Chicago before relocating to Hollywood. Monifa, whom Chicagoist once described as a "Chicago actress of some reknown," previously won a nationwide dramatic auditions contest by the cable network TNT.
More importantly, the "Tonight Show" never bothered to mention that Monifa appeared in a "Pumpcast News" segment broadcast more than two years ago.
Yup, Monifa was on "Pumpcast News" before.
