Gypsy Rose whose life, viewers witnessed through Joey King in the Hulu series ‘The Act’ is not really happy with the storyline. This comes when Joey is nominated for Emmy Award, and Gypsy congratulated her for the same with the saying that this will not lead to a meet between them.
Gypsy Congratulated Joey But She Is Not Happy With Storyline
Gypsy Rose family spokesperson, Fancy Macelli reported the same to TMZ. He was quoted as “Gypsy sincerely congratulates Joey for nailing the role and mastering her look, voice and mannerisms.” Moreover, this doesn’t mean that Gypsy also liked the way her story was depicted through the popular series. The representative told that Gypsy’s meeting with the Emmy nominated actress would allot a validation to the inaccurate storyline of ‘The Act.’ This is something the girl who was forced to pretend like disable for years never wants.
The Inaccuracy In The Storyline
Now, what are the things that didn’t go along with Gypsy’s expectations? She claimed that the sex scenes repetitions in ‘The Act’ “make her seem like a nymphomaniac.” As per her view, the scenes were dramatized. Reportedly she said, this not the true depictions of her real-life episodes.
On the other hand, her mother’s attempt to holding her hostage by tying her up in the bed is something that happened only once with her when she tried to escape. But the series has shown Dee Dee (Gypsy’s Mother) doing this repeatedly with her daughter.
Gypsy, who is serving her 10-year jail sentences, thinks that “she has nothing to gain by meeting with Joey.” Her then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn, who wanted to help her to escape from her mother’s hostage is also behind the war for the alleged murder of Dee in 2015. He was convicted with a life sentence for the second-degree murder.

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
