Janet Mocks Everyone

One would think the final season of a landmark, award-winning show would get tongues wagging.  But that wagging about Pose is coming courtesy of Janet Mock, the show’s transgender writer and director.  The place – a private premiere party in NYC.  The audience – Hollywood heavyweights (and I don’t mean like Will Smith).  Janet started her tirade by saying: “Why am I making $40,000 a motherfucking episode?  Huh?  Do you know who the fuck I am?  Do you know what I fucking mean?  Huh?  I’m angry!  Fuck Hollywood!”  While $40K a week is nothing to sneeze at, it’s peanuts in Hollywood…especially for a writer and producer.  Mock went after Ryan Murphy, who defended himself by saying he brought in transgender talent both in front of and behind the camera. 

And then…Janet asked her boyfriend to rise.  That boyfriend is Angel Bismark Curiel, a 25-year-old actor on Pose.  “Let me tell you something about love,” said Janet.  “Today I was gonna let you go.  I was gonna let you go, right.  But what did I do?  I fucked someone on the crew, right?  Angel, Angel, I’m not losing you.  You hear me?  You are fucking important to me.  I don’t want to live in a house alone.  I want you, you motherfucker.  Right there – that’s who I want.  I’m getting what’s mine.”  I am speechless.  All I know is Angel didn’t walk out.  So I’m shutting up – because, clearly, we have nothing in common.
