Is ABC’s “The View” just reaching preposterous levels of desperation?
E! reports that co-host Rosie Perez has admitted to being “quasi-straight” and says she once wanted to mount a woman. The remarks were made Monday night at a TrevorLive event in Manhattan. The Trevor Project provides counseling and suicide prevention to LGBTQ youth.
The same-sex crush happened in junior high. Her name was “Michelle.”
Perez just comes right out with it.
“All I wanted to do was hump her,” she said.
She tried to fight it. Until Michelle prompted the humping.
“And I suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge until Michelle one day started humping on me,” she said.
It is a bold admission. But will it translate into more viewers into watching “The View”? The show most recently debuted new host Raven-Symoné, who won’t call herself gay or African American despite being in a relationship with a woman and being black.
Rosie, who has been married and divorced twice to men, wasn’t done with that word: humping.
“If I had other people, specifically adults, if I was just able to call up and they said, ‘Oh, I humped the Michelle-type person too, you’re normal, don’t worry …that would have made all the difference in the world,” she told the audience in New York.
