Goodbye Mo-Mo!?

Goodbye Mo-Mo!?

My television just got a little less gay. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that “Nurse Jackie” – one of my favorite new series of ’09 – has got rid of Jackie’s gay bff Mohammed “Mo-Mo” De La Cruz, played by the ridiculously sexy Haaz Sleiman. Sleiman’s rep said producers felt “the character’s storyline ran its course… We were surprised. It came out of left field.”

What storyline? Most of the time he was just there to be sassy and/or provide advice to Jackie (as gay characters tend to be reduced to). Worse is they apparently aren’t even going to address his departure in the narrative!

R.I.P. Mo-Mo. We hardly knew ye.
