She’s not a regular mom, she’s a Cool Mom!
We’ve got SO MUCH to learn from this Cool Mom, but not as much as SHE has to learn from her gay, homosexual son. Jinkx Monsoon and Nick Sahoyah star in our brand new web series on WOW Presents Plus and boy is it a good one.
Wait, before we continue have you subscribed yet? It’s 30 days FREE if you sign up and only $3.99 after that… a steal if you ask me.
Anyway, we got the chance to catch up with Jinkx and Nick to talk about what Cool Mom is, where you should watch it, WHAT you should eat while watching it and SO MUCH MORE!
Check out our interview with them below!
Chelsea Perrotty: What IS Cool Mom? Can you explain it to viewers in your own words?
Jinkx: Cool Mom is the answer to the question: “what if my mom were a gay man?” In this webshow, Jinkx Monsoon takes a few moments to better understand the lifestyle of her adult, gay son- cuz she’s not an ordinary mom. She’s a cool mom.
Nick: Jinkx and I have always had this mother/son dynamic and Cool Mom is a natural extension of that. It’s Jinkx trying to understand modern topics even though she’s a 50-something year old woman.
C: Do you have any fun stories that happened behind the scenes while filming for Cool Mom?
Jinkx: Well, for one episode, we discuss the benefits of marijuana (medicinal or otherwise,) and the only way to fully understand the mindset of a stoner is to… be stoned. I’m sure we can all agree, nothing is more awkward than getting stoned with your son and then trying to carry on, business as usual. But hey, we’re method actors.
Nick: During the episode where I teach Jinkx about Grindr we were actually on the app talking to guys around us. One dude was really attractive and afterwards I had to apologize to him for all the embarrassing stuff Jinkx typed to him during the episode. I was going to try to hook up with him later but I think he lives in Europe now.
C: What’s your favorite part of filming/making Cool Mom?
Jinkx: I’ve always wanted to help elevate my son out of obscurity, so that he may have a taste of the fancy life, like his mother. Having a webshow together has been a perfect opportunity for just that.
Nick: It was nice to have an open ended schedule. We knew we were filming all day so we could really dive deep into a subject or go off on whatever tangents we wanted
C: Do you have a favorite episode of Cool Mom?
Jinkx: I enjoyed the episode where he teaches me what Grindr is, and how to use it. Can you imagine!?
Nick: Well, they locked us in a room for 9 hours and filmed us while we slowly lost our minds. So, I’m interested to see what I look like when I’m emotionally depleted.
C: Who is your ultimate real world “Cool Mom”?
Jinkx: The mom in me wants to say: Michelle Obama. However, the COOL mom in me, wants to say, Sharon Osborne.
Nick: I love Jennifer Coolidge. She had her mainstream success in American Pie and Legally Blonde but she’s a total scene stealer in all of Christopher Guest’s movies.
C: If you could be on any other WOW show – past, present, or possibly future – what show would you pick and why?
Jinkx: I would have liked to be a recurring, supporting guest in Uuuuunnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhh. Like the mail person, who occasionally brings Trixie and Katya packages that turn out to be hate mail, sent by other queens.
Nick: I want to be on Fashion Photo Review so I can say “Trend alert: Sleeves!”
C: What is your go-to “WOW Presents Plus and Chill” Snack?
Jinkx: Frosties and French fries, from Wendy’s. You dip the fries into the frosty, and forgive yourself later.
Nick: I think the “and chill” part implies sex is maybe going to happen so I guess anything mild that won’t upset my tummy.
C: In your own words, why should people download WOW Presents Plus to watch you both on Cool Mom?
Jinkx: Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places. You may think this show is just a self indulgent exercise of blatant nepotism… and it is- but that doesn’t mean you won’t possibly learn something from it.
Nick: Because data rates are very reasonable and there’s free wifi just about everywhere. Just download the app, we’ve got kids to feed.
