Sparks on Billy Masters Live

It may not have been the 4th of July, but there were plenty of fireworks on Billy Masters LIVE last week.  I planned a Pride panel with bon vivant Bruce Vilanch, writer Jim Colucci, and performer Jason Dottley.  You may remember Dottley as the ex-spouse of auteur Del Shores.  I covered their union in this very column with some colorful prose.  Jason (who appears at the Post Office Café in Provincetown July 12, 13, 19, 20) decided to take me to task for some pointed barbs…in which he was never actually named.  I believe one blind item mentioned someone who “bounced from bed to bed to obscurity”.  While I admit that sure sounds like him, I’d add that the real Jason has enormous balls.  Not many people take me on face-to-face, and the fact that he wanted to discuss it in such a good-natured way impressed me a great deal.  He’s absolutely right about one thing – only he and Del know what went on in their relationship.  And if Jason has in fact “slept his way to the middle”, well…good for him!  You can watch this very juicy episode of Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on

We’ll wrap up Pride Month on Tuesday, June 29th with a special Billy Masters LIVE featuring Norman Korpi and Eric Nies – cast members from the very first season of MTV’s The Real World.  They recently starred in a reunion series, The Real World Homecoming: New York, and we’ll talk about how the television landscape has changed in the past 29 years.
