Why Is Showtime Taking Away Homo Mo-Mo?


Haaz Sleiman, the Nurse Jackie actor who plays Mo (Jackie’s main gay), has been cut from Season 2 of the show, which premieres March 22. That’s too bad, because he was The Awesome. Sleiman’s rep says the actor was “surprised” as the news. Read: It wasn’t planned. Moreover, TV gossip Michael Ausiello says: “Adding insult to injury, I just screened the first two episodes of Season 2 and Mo-Mo’s departure isn’t even addressed. Not even his best bud Jackie acknowledges his absence. It’s as if he never existed!” We’d love to be able to throw around accusations like, “Showtime is hating on the gays!,” but really, Showtime is gayer than LOGO these days.
