If you tuned into HBO’s “Insecure”, you’re probably well aware that the adventures of Issa, Molly, Lawrence and friends can get pretty raunchy. One scene involving actor Jay Ellis in a threesome even had me clutching my pearls. Well if I was caught off guard, I can only imagine how his family reacted when seeing their loved one get some loving dressed in nothing but the locked eyes of parched women everywhere.
The actor recently made an appearance on daytime talk show “The Real” to talk about rocking his birthday suit in front of family members who probably haven’t seen it in all of its cocoa glory since the day he was born. When questioned about his steamy scenes, Ellis shared with the show that his mother, father and grandmother had mixed feelings about him baring it all on national TV. His mother decided to pass on season 2 after being caught off guard by her son’s booty suddenly on the screen the first season:
“My mom did not watch this season. She watched some of the season but not all of the season.”
“My mom was like, ‘I can’t do it. You didn’t tell me last season and I was watching and then all of a sudden your booty was just on the TV!'”
Ellis says his father revealed his pride in a slow clap as expected, but one family member felt he might need an extra serving of the blood of Jesus to save his soul after baring his body. Ellis’s grandmother wasn’t the least bit impressed by her grandson showing what was made in God’s image to the world:
“It’s odd when my grandmother calls me and she’s like, ‘Baby, was you naked?”
“And I was like, ‘Well, grandma, you saw my butt. I was naked, but not, like, fully naked,’ and she was like, ‘Well, we gon’ pray for you tonight.'”
Sounds like we need to put down our remotes and lift Brother Ellis up in prayer. You can check out his appearance on “The Real” below:
