Wondering how Gypsy Rose feels about Joey King getting nominated for a dang Emmy Award for playing her in The Act? Yeah, not great. Gypsy’s spokesperson Fancy Macelli allegedly told TMZ that while Gypsy congratulates Joey for—to quote the outlet—”nailing the role and mastering her look, voice and mannerisms,” she’s zero percent interested in meeting the actress because of how inaccurate she felt Hulu’s limited series was. She also believes that meeting with Joey would “validate the series’ narrative.”
According to Fancy (via TMZ), Gypsy’s taking issue with several of The Act’s plot points—including the repeated sex scenes in the series being “dramatized to make her seem like a nymphomaniac,” as well as how frequently her mom Dee Dee was shown tying her up in bed (it only happened once IRL).
Apparently, Gypsy—who’s currently in prison for the second-degree murder of her mother—just wants to put The Act behind her, and has nothing to gain from meeting Joey. Meanwhile, Joey seems thrilled about her recent Emmy nomination, and hit Instagram to share a super emotional video of herself breaking down into tears upon hearing her name read out as the nominations were announced.
This is me in South Africa on my way to set in the car live steaming The Emmy nominations announcement from the hotspot on my phone also known as the best moment in the world. My work on The Act was the most fulfilling and challenging work I’ve gotten to do as an actress thus far. To be nominated for an Emmy in a category with such INCREDIBLE nominees by my side, especially Patricia is the most surreal feeling. I haven’t stopped crying. Gettin to call Patricia right after and share this moment with her is something I’ll never forget. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, there’s so many people who are behind The Act that I couldn’t have done this without and I can’t wait to call all of them!!!! OH MY GOD I CANT BELIEVE IM NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY
