Channing Tatum Goes Nude

Our Ask Billy question comes from Kevin in Chicago: “I just saw a nude photo Channing Tatum posted.  Is that recent?  Because he looks AMAZEBALLS!”

And that, dear reader, is the first – and hopefully last – time the word “amazeballs” will appear in a Billy Masters column.  I’m often stymied when people with perfect physiques on screen – Channing Tatum, Colin Farrell, Mark Wahlberg – turn up in candids on the beach or jogging shirtless with a body more akin to one’s second trimester.  I don’t know how Channing goes from chunk to hunk with such annoying regularity.  But the photo he posted from the set of The Lost City of D is abs-olutely striking, indeed.  He captioned it by saying, “You know when you in the make-up trailer asshole naked holding a towel over your junk you about to do some shit on set that you gonna have to prepare ya mama for before she see the movie.”  That Chan – he’s got a golden tongue.  He added, “And yes I’m flexing so hard I got a cramp”.  You’ll appreciate his efforts on BillyMasters.com.

When Tatum is cramping for our pleasure, it’s definitely time to end another column.  You know what won’t cramp your style?  Checking out www.BillyMasters.com – the site that always delivers a happy ending.  If you have a question, send it off to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before David Archuleta chronicles his coming out story on a Netflix series!  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

Masters, Rudnick & Mathews

It’s been a while since I did two Billy Masters LIVE shows in one week.  But I love a theme.  And when I got books from both Paul Rudnick and Dan Mathews, I knew they were perfect for Pride Month.  Paul Rudnick is fascinating because he’s done SO much – essays, novels, plays, films.  His latest, Playing the Palace, is a perfect summer book (I read it on a plane).  Dan Mathews may be Senior Vice President of PETA, but his writing has always entertained and enlightened.  His memoir, Like Crazy: Life with My Mother and Her Invisible Friends, is heartfelt and hysterical.  I had a blast chatting with these witty gents, so be sure to check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

One of my favorite events every year is Broadway Bares.  Due to that pesky pandemic, Broadway Bares: Twerk From Home will be a virtual chance to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  Naturally, I’m gonna have some of the hunkiest performers join me for a special Billy Masters LIVE.  On Thursday, June 17th, I will host Jay Armstrong Johnson, Patrick Boyd, Sebastian La Cause, Mark MacKillop, and perhaps a couple others.  Bares founder Jerry Mitchell is in London rehearsing Hairspray, but he’ll also pop in.  See you on Thursday.  And be sure to check out Broadway Bares which takes place on June 20th at 9PM.  Watch it for free on BroadwayCares.org.

Archuleta Comes Out

On the same day, someone else made a statement.  When David Archuleta was on American Idol, MANY gay men eagerly questioned his sexuality.  I was not amongst those people.  Archuleta was 17 years old at the time and – well, my feeling about sexualizing youngsters is well documented.  I also knew from several sources that he came from a devoutly religious family – and had a very domineering father.  A couple of years later, I reported about David going to a NYC gay bar – ostensibly to see singer Charice.  He Tweeted, “Wasn’t my kind of place”, adding “I have friends who are gay, and they’re great people.”  Now he’s all grown up and shared the following on Instagram: “I came out in 2014 as gay to my family.”  Then he thought he might be bisexual, since he was attracted to both genders.  Now he kinda considers himself asexual.  “I don’t have too much sexual desires and urges as most people, which works I guess because I have a commitment to save myself until marriage.”  However he chooses to define himself, we congratulate him on his authenticity and wish him well on his journey.  As to waiting till marriage…well, see Colton Underwood.

Kamala Harris is Proud

“Now, therefore, I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America
…do hereby proclaim June 2021 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,
and Queer Pride Month.  I call upon the people of the United States to recognize
the achievements of the LGBTQ+ community, to celebrate the great diversity
of the American people, and to wave their flags of pride high.”
 
President Joe Biden.

Despite President Biden allowing US embassies around the world to fly the rainbow flag during Pride Month, many demurred.  The Pentagon banned the flag from flying outside of military bases.  The more things change…  And then, out of the blue, everything changed with the single act of a single person.  It helps when that single person is the sitting Vice President of the United States.  Without any fanfare, Kamala Harris (and second dude, Doug) showed up at Capital Pride celebrations in DC.  Just by strolling around wearing a “Love Is Love” tee, waving to people and saying, “Happy Pride”, history was made.  Remember that when you wonder if your voice matters.

Italian Stud Comes Out?

This week’s Ask Billy question comes from Mark in Cyberspace: Michele Morrone – the super hot star of the popular Netflix Italian drama 365 DNI posted a photo of himself and his equally hot male costar Simone Susinna with the caption, ‘I’m a liar’.  Is this his way of coming out?  If anyone would know the real story, it would be you.”

Alas, he’s not coming out.  Referring to Simone, Michele says, “He became a very good friend of mine, we’re like brothers.  We’re shooting a movie together.  It was just a picture.  Nothing more.”  He added, “An actor is a kind of liar.  That’s why I wrote that.  Acting…as someone who is not.  I didn’t come out.  So, I’m so sorry for the confusion.  As I said, I’m a big supporter of the LGBT community.  There’s a lot of young guys and girls…  They would love to come out but they don’t do it because of their families.  You know, happiness is priceless, guys.  Peace and love, I love you so much.”  Gay or straight, he’s mighty hot – as you’ll see on BillyMasters.com.

When we’re extolling the significant virtues of a self-proclaimed ally, it’s definitely time to end another column.  Based on a suggestion, members of our website will soon get an e-mail with the column when it goes live – including a link to all photos and videos.  Since we’re running a Pride Month sale, this is the perfect time to check out www.BillyMasters.com – the site that’s proud 365 days a year.  For all your pressing needs, write to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Frankie Grande realizes he was only cast because of who his sister is!  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

Billy’s Literary Guests

A safe haven in the world is still Billy Masters LIVE – although I am partial to men in masks.  Last week, we kicked off Pride Month with legendary drag diva Momma – aka Worthie Meacham.  The two of us co-hosted LA Pride for seven consecutive years, and we looked back at those celebrations.  Making special appearances were Olivia Newton-John, Pauley Perrette and Willam.  This week, we celebrate gay writers with TWO special shows.  On Tuesday, June 8th, Paul Rudnick talks about his prolific career and his new book, Playing the Palace.  And then on Thursday, June 10th, Dan Mathews – mouthpiece for PETA – drops by to chat about his book Like Crazy: Life with my Mother and Her Invisible Friends.  So be sure to check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

Stomp Out Covid

This next story is going to demonstrate that I can admit that I was wrong – and that it doesn’t make me happy.  The off-Broadway production of Stomp will resume performances at the Orpheum Theatre on July 20th.  They have announced that everyone walking into the theatre – cast, crew, staff, and audience – must present proof of vaccination AND wear a mask.  While I am totally in favor of people being vaccinated, I question the legality of requiring proof for admission – especially for Stomp!  I can only speak for myself, but I ain’t gonna risk losing my original vaccination card to see a bunch of guys banging on anything…unless it’s me!

As I told you last week, the Crown & Anchor is requiring proof of vaccine for patrons to their popular dance parties – something I support.  Following suit in Ptown is The Boatslip for their popular tea dance – in addition to many dance clubs around the country.  And Pride Night at LA’s Dodger Stadium will require proof of vaccination to attend the game and post-game fireworks.  This may very well be the new normal.  Along with that new normal are the new ways around it.  Google searches for fake coronavirus vaccination cards are up by 1,000%.

Celebs Celebrate Pride

Welcome to Gay Pride Month.  While we cautiously emerge from the pandemic, many Pride events have been cancelled out of an abundance of caution.  But there are still festivities taking place.  For instance, the police and paramedics were called to the home of JoJo Siwa during an out-of-control Pride party.  My first question – who the fuck is JoJo Siwa?  Wikipedia tells me that she is “an American dancer, singer, actress, and YouTube personality known for appearing for two seasons on Dance Moms.”  So my instinct that she was someone I didn’t care about was accurate.  The press referred to the soirée as a “star-studded Pride party”.  So I was curious which stars studded this event.  Details are sketchy – like, I suspect, many of the attendees.  But one report claims that it was “attended by several fellow influencers”.  BTW, the party took place at her home in Tarzana.  And, I’m done.

At least I know who Dove Cameron is.  I don’t care, but I do remember her from Hairspray: LIVE.  And I’m always happy to welcome anyone coming out.  During an Instagram Live, she said she didn’t say anything sooner because she didn’t think anyone would believe her.  “I was never confused about who I was.  I felt like I wouldn’t be accepted and I had this strange narrative that people wouldn’t believe me.”  Really?  I’d have guessed right off.

Then there is Frankie Grande – a veritable senior by comparison.  The 38-year-old claims that it was his “celebrity” that got the producers to cast him on Big Brother.  “They were so obsessed with the fact that they were going to get a YouTuber and a personality on their show for the very first time.  I was the first influencer to ever be on Big Brother.”  Allegedly people all over the world credit Frankie for showing “such a different concept of what a gay man was.”  A bleached blond, sexually insatiable schemer?  Honey, I was that person while you were practicing on a pacifier.

Mike Doyle Uncovered

Our Ask Billy question comes from Toni in Dallas: “I was recently watching Green Lantern and think I remember you writing about the guy who plays Jack.  Isn’t he gay?  He’s really hot.”

Mike Doyle is indeed gay.  Aside from being a talented Juilliard-trained actor, he’s also a filmmaker.  In 2019, he directed the indie flick Almost Love, which starred openly gay actors Scott Evans and Augustus Prew playing a gay couple (see our Billy Masters LIVE discussion about whether only gay actors should play gay roles).  If you think he’s hot, then we have a treat for you.  When he appeared in Paul Rudnick’s play The New Century at Lincoln Center, he was nude – and impressed audience members with his enormous talent.  When I wrote about this in a 2008 column, I mentioned that he may have made New York theatre history as the first actor to appear naked onstage while wearing a cock ring.  Of course, we can back that up with footage and photos on BillyMasters.com.

When we’re backing up on Mike Doyle, it’s definitely time for me to relax and end another column.  Before closing, I want to acknowledge the passing of circuit party king, Jeffrey Sanker.  I worked with him on many events, and what stands out to me is how good he was at delegating – IF he trusted you.  I was glad to be one of those people and remember him fondly.  Don’t forget to check out www.BillyMasters.com – site that always has fresh dish…usually including some kinda meat.  If you have question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I find out if underwear parties are returning to Ptown (fingers crossed).  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

 

Troye’s Posterior

Singer P!nk revealed a particularly uncomfortable moment during her bisexual days – sharing a girlfriend with her brother!  “My first girlfriend – I was 13 and she left me for my brother!  I was very confused by that, ‘cause she kissed me first and that’s gross.”

Troye Sivan is doing his best to get eyeballs on the video for his new song, “You”.  He posted a still showing him wearing a see-through lace body stocking which displays his best assets.  More intriguing than his pert posterior is the fact that the photo was liked by Shawn Mendes.  Take that any way you’d like – which I suspect is OK with Troye.

 

Franzese Dishes & Raps

We had a dishy episode of Billy Masters LIVE last week.  We talked at length with actor, comedian, and rapper Daniel Franzese – who you may recall from Looking and Mean Girls.  He had a great story to share about being fired from hosting a male beauty pageant at a Christian college.  We were joined by Frank DeCaro, who announced that his next book will be devoted to DISCO!  And, rounding out our panel was actor Jonny Beauchamp, who announced that he’ll be appearing in the film The Way Out, written and directed by Barry Jay (of Barry’s Bootcamp), which will also star our pal Sherri Shepherd.  Be sure to check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

One of the topics our panel tackled was news that Vanessa Redgrave will NOT appear in the Kevin Spacey comeback film, to be directed by her husband, Franco Nero.  Lemme tell you the storyline – Franco plays a blind artist accused of molesting children, and Spacey plays the detective investigating the allegations.  Hmmm.

 

Provincetown Preview

We have a Memorial Day tradition here at Billy Masters Worldwide – that’s when we start planning our summer travels.  So now, without further ado, let me tell you what’s happening in Provincetown.  After a somewhat bleak 2020, I am pleased to report that Ptown is back!  As of this writing, everything is re-opening, shows are taking place inside and out, and dance clubs will be buzzing.  However, people are not taking anything for granted.  Rick Murray, proprietor of The Crown & Anchor, has gone above and beyond the call by ruling that entrance to “large scale dance events…will REQUIRE proof of vaccination for entry.”  Bravo, Rick.

colorbar1

But what is Provincetown without shows?  The Crown has the legendary Thirsty Burlington holding court on Mondays, while Well-Strung violinist Edmund Bagnell appears on Tuesdays.  The uproarious Varla Jean Merman brings her Little Prick to the stage Tuesdays through Saturdays, while Dina Martina is on Wednesdays through Sundays.  There are oodles of others appearing, so check out the full schedule of events at OnlyAtTheCrown.com.

After being shuttered for a year, the Provincetown Art House resumes a full slate of performances, anchored by the hysterical Judy Gold on Fridays and Saturdays in July (Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August).  Seth Rudetsky hosts a number of fantastic evenings, featuring such powerhouse vocalists as Sierra Boggess, Rachel Bay Jones, Liz Callaway, Lillias White, and Beth Malone.  The indefatigable Marilyn Maye takes up residency for two weeks on either side of Labor Day.  And scattered throughout the summer are pals like Steven Brinberg (Simply Barbra), Ben Rimalower, John Hill, Ginger Minj, and many more.  Their entire lineup can be found at PTownArtHouse.com.

By the by, the Art House also presents several special events at Provincetown Town Hall – including concerts by Stephanie J. Block, Alaska Thunderfuck, Kristin Chenoweth, and Kelli O’Hara.  Same website.

Over at the Pilgrim House, Miss Richfield 1981 continues her reign Monday through Friday, Paige Turner is Wednesday through Saturday, Steve Grand is there July 10-20, and the legendary Sharon McNight returns July 31st through August 3rd.  Specifics can be found on PilgrimHousePtown.com.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that The Post Office Café and Cabaret is reopening under new management.  There will be shows by Seth Sikes, Anita Cocktail, Debby Holiday, Del Shores, and even Jason Dottley.   All the details are on PostOfficeCafe.net.

The Provincetown Theater reopens…with a twist.  Despite restrictions being lifted, they have constructed an outdoor performing space to provide the audience with a safe, tranquil and unique experience.  In June, they have Neptune, which is a one-man show starring Timothy DuWhite.  A writer/producer from This Is Us has written a play called The Cake, which will run in July.  And August will see Tennessee Williams’ classic, The Glass Menagerie, which was born in Ptown. Grab your tix at ProvincetownTheater.org.

 

Wilkas’ Motel Workout

Our Ask Billy question comes from Thomas in Chicago: “You’ve mentioned Gus Kenworthy a lot.  What about his ex, Matt Wilkas?  He was really hot.  What’s he up to?”

Touching himself inappropriately in a motel room.  Yes, I’m serious.  He recently did a photo shoot with Brian Kaminski where Matt is frolicking naked in a run-down motel room.  Why?  Some think it’s art.  Some think it’s porn.  I think you can see the pics on BillyMasters.com.

 

Hocus Pocus 2

And now, news that people have actually been waiting almost three decades for – Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will reunite in Hocus Pocus 2!  We knew Disney was making a sequel, but the original trio was not confirmed…until now.  Shooting will begin this fall, and the film will debut on Halloween 2022.  Bette Midler made the announcement on Twitter: “Sistaaaahs!  It’s been 300 years…But we’re BACK!”

Speaking of Sarah Jessica Parker, there’s news about the Sex and the City sequel.  HBO Max has ordered 10 episodes of And Just Like That…, with filming beginning any day now.  As you know, Cattrall opted out of reprising Samantha, but both Davis and Nixon are on board.  And they’ll be joined by Sara Ramirez, who will play Che – described as “a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured.  Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive, human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular.”  Eh, I’ll give it a shot.

 

Disney Goes Gay

We hear that the upcoming Cruella starring Emma Stone is a hoot and a half.  The extra half-a-hoot comes from Disney’s first openly gay character named Artie, played by John McCrea.  He’s a member of Cruella’s gang, and we hear he has a good amount of screen time and saves the life of another character.  And he’s fifth-billed, which says something.

OMG – another Disney story!!!  Joshua Bassett just came out.  Who?  He’s on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series – which, if you ask me, has one too many colons.  His revelation came about almost matter-of-factly.  He was asked in a video interview about performers he admires.  He chose Harry Styles.  “He’s cool, he’s just cool…who doesn’t think Harry Styles is cool?  Also, he’s hot, you know?  He’s very charming, too.  Lots of things.”  He then added, “This is also my coming out video, I guess.”

 

Porter Goes Public

Billy Porter just went public with a very personal story.  He told The Hollywood Reporter that he has been HIV-positive for the past 14 years.  His silence was motivated by shame.  “I was the generation that was supposed to know better, and it happened anyway.”  It’s a secret he kept from most people – including his mother.  His reason?  “She’s not going to be here long, and then I’ll write my book and come out and she won’t have to live with the embarrassment of having an HIV-positive child.”  Her response surprised him.  “You’ve been carrying this around for 14 years?  Don’t ever do this again.  I’m your mother.  I love you no matter what.”

Although Pose has wrapped, Porter is busier than ever.  He’s directing his first feature film called What If?, Netflix is doing a documentary about his life called Rise, and he’s playing a gender-free Fairy Godparent in a remake of Cinderella.  He’s also joined the cast of the upcoming Disney+ animated series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder – a reboot of The Proud Family, which ran on the Disney Channel from 2001-2005.  Porter joins the original cast alongside Zachary Quinto, who plays his partner.  It’ll hit the air in early 2022, but we’ve got photos of their characters on BillyMasters.com.

 

Garfield Goes Nude

This week’s Ask Billy question comes from Gary in Utah (yes, I was surprised, too): “I heard Andrew Garfield is nude in his new movie.  Do you know if that’s true??”

True…but also false.  The film in question is Mainstream – and it’s anything but.  It sounds like it’s targeting a niche market…but if anyone can fill that niche, it’s Andrew Garfield.  In the film, he walks around in a flesh-colored thong with an enormous fake penis sticking out.  So if the thought of Garfield’s not-so-unappealing torso and bum are to your liking – to say nothing of a big fake penis being to your licking – then check out BillyMasters.com.

Billy’s Latest Panel

Oh, I know where I heard it – on Billy Masters LIVE.  Last week, we had another fabulous panel discussion.  I was joined by E! legend and pioneer, Steve Kmetko and acclaimed announcer and the morning host on Palm Springs KGAY 106.5 FM, Ben Patrick Johnson.  Filling what Regis dubbed the Young One slot, the dashing, devilish, and divine Mark MacKillop – who is the top fundraiser for Broadway Bares two years running, bringing in $168K!  On my show, we talked about Ellen, the Golden Globes, Kevin Spacey, and oodles of other things.  It was totally fun, totally dishy, and totally unscripted.  You can watch Billy Masters LIVE on Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

Cox Controversy

When awards return to the air, a notable presence will be missing from the red carpet.  Giuliana Rancic has announced her departure from E! to take up a development deal with NBCUniversal – the company that owns…you guessed it, E!  Since Ryan Seacrest already left, someone decided to combine those two and come up with a formidable replacement.  Laverne Cox will greet nominees and ask what they’re wearing.

Laverne made news last week for another reason – and it could jeopardize her new working relationship.  When films are released overseas, they are often dubbed by actors who speak the language.  In the upcoming Italian release of Promising Young Woman (which came out here last Christmas), Laverne plays the pivotal role of Gail.  In the Italian dubbed version, Gail is voiced by actor Roberto Pedicini.  This is not an isolated incident – when Orange is the New Black, The Mindy Project and Doubt were released in Italy, Cox was dubbed by male actor Andrea Lavagnino.  Days before the film’s scheduled Italian release, someone leaked a clip online with Roberto’s voice.  All hell broke loose.  Oh, did I mention the film comes to us courtesy of Universal?  The company issued a statement: “We are deeply grateful to Laverne and the transgender community for opening our eyes to a bias that neither we nor many in our industry had recognized.”  They added that the part is being redubbed with a female actor…which I’m not sure is any better.  I mean, a cis female?  Not that I know how many transgender voiceover actresses there are in Italy.  That’s beyond my pay grade.

 

Billy’s Latest Panel

Ellen is leaving the building…in another year.  DeGeneres says she made this decision on her own, and she always planned to leave at the end of the 19th year – something I don’t believe.  She also asserts that she had no idea her set was a toxic work environment, and wishes someone had told her.  Ellen even swore to Savannah Guthrie that not a single guest has had anything but a good experience.  She may want to peruse Kathy Griffin’s book.  Or check in with Wendy Williams, who said, “I’m not sure that all the guests are happy.  I was a guest.  I wasn’t happy.”  Ellen feels this was an orchestrated and misogynistic attack on her.  Haven’t I heard that one before?

Janet Mocks Everyone

One would think the final season of a landmark, award-winning show would get tongues wagging.  But that wagging about Pose is coming courtesy of Janet Mock, the show’s transgender writer and director.  The place – a private premiere party in NYC.  The audience – Hollywood heavyweights (and I don’t mean like Will Smith).  Janet started her tirade by saying: “Why am I making $40,000 a motherfucking episode?  Huh?  Do you know who the fuck I am?  Do you know what I fucking mean?  Huh?  I’m angry!  Fuck Hollywood!”  While $40K a week is nothing to sneeze at, it’s peanuts in Hollywood…especially for a writer and producer.  Mock went after Ryan Murphy, who defended himself by saying he brought in transgender talent both in front of and behind the camera. 

And then…Janet asked her boyfriend to rise.  That boyfriend is Angel Bismark Curiel, a 25-year-old actor on Pose.  “Let me tell you something about love,” said Janet.  “Today I was gonna let you go.  I was gonna let you go, right.  But what did I do?  I fucked someone on the crew, right?  Angel, Angel, I’m not losing you.  You hear me?  You are fucking important to me.  I don’t want to live in a house alone.  I want you, you motherfucker.  Right there – that’s who I want.  I’m getting what’s mine.”  I am speechless.  All I know is Angel didn’t walk out.  So I’m shutting up – because, clearly, we have nothing in common.

 

Billy Takes On Broadway

Broadway will open in the fall – maybe.  Chicago will knock ‘em dead starting on September 14thSix (the new musical about Henry VIII’s wives) will kill starting on September 17th, while Phantom of the Opera swings back into action on October 22nd.  But will any of this happen?  We tackled Broadway on last week’s Billy Masters LIVE with writers Michael Riedel and Eddie Shapiro.  Both have penned two volumes on the Great White Way which I cannot recommend enough.  See what they had to say on Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

This week, we have another panel discussion with some fabulous fellas talking about anything and everything.  Tune in – Thursday at 3PM Eastern, Noon Pacific.  ‘Cause if we’re there, we’re live.

Sarah Paulson’s Tripp

Weight was also in the news for women.  No one will deny that Sarah Paulson is one of our greatest actresses.  And, as a favorite of auteur Ryan Murphy, it was no surprise she was cast in his upcoming Impeachment: American Crime Story.  However, people couldn’t quite picture the svelte Paulson as the rotund Linda Tripp – she of the loose lips about Monica Lewinsky (whose lips were otherwise occupied).  When photos of a stout Sarah surfaced from the set, scuttlebutt spread that the actress was wearing a fat suit.  And many wondered – why not hire a fat actress?  They believe Paulson’s casting sends a message that plump actresses are unhireable.  Which leads to my usual argument – why not hire the best actress?  Paulson has proven to me that she can play any role.  Show me an actress of the same caliber and cache who looks more like Linda Tripp and is available (this might be a good time to point out that Tripp was played on Saturday Night Live by John Goodman).  I would like us to get to the point where the best actor gets the part – regardless of their weight, creed, sexual orientation, or age.

Will Smith’s Dad Bod

It may have just been Mother’s Day, but everyone is talking about the “dad bod” – which, for those of you youngsters, is a body with perhaps a spare tire or two around the midsection.  The recent discussions are courtesy of Will Smith – who was previously in possession of a gym bod.  Will posted a revealing photo with the caption, “I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life.”  Headlines hailed Will’s photo as “body positive” and helping change beauty standards.  And, how did he celebrate?  By going to the gym and going on a diet!  And by signing a six-figure deal to document…you guessed it…how he got rid of his dad bod.  Best Shape of My Life will follow Will’s journey to losing the weight – with the help of personal trainers, state-of-the-art gyms, and various doctors.  So, for several thousand dollars, you too could get into the best shape of your life!

News Making Nudes

One of my proofreaders is quite taken with Ashley Parker Angel’s recent nearly nude photos.  For those who don’t know, the former O-Town singer likes to post sexy pics on social media – a holdover from his days with Lou Pearlman, no doubt.  I never tire of looking at every inch of Angel – who was not only delightful on Broadway in Hairspray, but is also a delight in person (perhaps I’ll have him on Billy Masters LIVE).  To tide you over, I’ll post some of his more sizzling snaps on BillyMasters.com.

Our Ask Billy question comes from Paul in Indianapolis: “What do you know about Blake McCoy?  I heard he accidentally posted a nude photo online, which he’s taken down.  Can you find it?”

First, let me answer the obvious question – who the fuck is Blake McCoy?  He’s one of those regional news anchors who bounces from city to city – most recently, our nation’s capital.  He was bounced from that gig after Tweeting the following: “I’m annoyed obese people of all ages get priority vaccine access before all essential workers…Vaccinate all essential workers.  Then obese.”  But what does he think about vaccinating obese essential workers?    Days later, he posted an Instastory of two men fucking!  On video!  He quickly took it down, claiming it was posted by someone who borrowed his phone.  My sources swear that McCoy was the top in that footage.  Check it out on BillyMasters.com.

Billy’s Gay View

The latest episode of Billy Masters LIVE was quite a landmark.  At the risk of sounding like Barbara Walters, I always wanted to do a show with gay men of different generations, backgrounds, and views.  In light of the recent Oscars, I planned to sit down with award-winning writer, comedian, and bon vivant Bruce Vilanch – and, boy, did he give us Oscar dish!  I then mixed in producer and director Richard Jay-Alexander.   To fill the “young one” slot, I enlisted actor Jonny Beauchamp.  It was a combustible combination – and one that led to some fascinating discussions.  From the Academy Awards, to Colton Underwood, to The Talk, to opportunities for gay actors, it was really on fire!  I’m planning a panel show every month – and perhaps more often.  If you missed it, check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.  And, again, thanks Del!

This Thursday, May 6th, we have a treat for fans of Broadway.  Columnist Michael Riedel has written a fabulous book called Singular Sensation: The Triumph of Broadway, in which he peeks behind the curtain during the 1990s (his previous book, Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway, covers the prior period).  And Eddie Shapiro has a great new book out called A Wonderful Guy: Conversations with the Great Men of Musical Theater (his previous book was Nothing Like a Dame: Conversations with the Great Women of Musical Theater).  Both men are joining me to discuss their books and what they think Broadway post-pandemic will look like – and when they’ll finally give out last year’s Tonys!  Be sure to watch Billy Masters LIVE – ‘cause if we’re there, we’re live.

Elliot’s Happy

I have to make a confession – I never really cared for Ellen Page as an actress.  So, I’m not particularly invested in Elliot Page – other than, obviously, my trademark compassion and empathy.  Page spoke to Oprah about his transition.  When asked what part of the process brought him the most joy, he said, “Getting out of the shower and the towel’s around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re just like, ‘There I am.’”

Backstreet Boy AJ McLean just released a song called “Love Song Love”.  In the video, he’s in drag and dancing around a dollhouse with Nahla Wyld and Carmen Carrera, who happen to be transgender models.  “I’m an ally and this song, to me, screams ‘love no matter what’.  It’s about loving and respecting one another,” says AJ.

Caitlyn’s Woes

You already know that Caitlyn Jenner has filed papers to run for governor of California if Gavin Newsom is recalled.  But, Caitlyn’s got a big problem – none of her kids will support her candidacy.  Brody, Brandon and Burt have not only advised her not to run, they’ve said they won’t even vote for her.  OUCH!  To make matters worse, nobody in the Jenner or Kardashian camp will campaign for her.  Not surprisingly, we hear Republicans won’t support her because she’s trans, and Democrats won’t support her because she’s conservative.  But I bet it would make a great reality show.

The 2021 Oscars

This column is coming out the day after the Oscars – or, as I like to call it, The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe.  Am I the only one who was waiting for Regina King to break into “Don’t Rain on My Parade”?  Still, it’s hard to take issue with any show that features Glenn Close doing “Da Butt” – even if the bit was scripted within an inch of its life.  It’s too early for me to know who got left out of the In Memoriam – aside from my beloved Tempest Storm, who just passed away last week.  Still, I wouldn’t expect the Academy to honor the star of Teaserama.

Kym Whitley Chokes

My pal Sherri Shepherd has gone through an extraordinary transformation and lost over 20 pounds.  I had a hunch when she surprised Eric Roberts on Billy Masters LIVE.  And I knew she joined HealthyWage, which is a weight loss program where you get paid to hit your goal.  She’s also been doing Zumba, boxing, rollerskating, and pole dancing.  You had me until the pole.  She’s also got a weekly podcast with her bestie, Kym Whitley.  On last Monday’s episode of Two Funny Mammas, they were promoting an upcoming comedy special while eating dinner – salmon, vegetables and salad.  Kym started coughing and took a huge bone out of her mouth – saying she felt another one was still lodged in her throat.  Since she was choking, she ran to the kitchen, while Sherri was doubled over in hysterics saying, “I think Kym is dying….we’ve got to help her!”  It was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.  Since Kym is fine, feel free to laugh when you watch the clip on BillyMasters.com.

Zac Efron’s Change

Lots of people believe that Zac Efron has had extensive plastic surgery.  What is their proof?  His jaw looks fuller now than it used to.  The side-by-side photos are quite staggering.  What they neglect to take into account is that Zac is now roughly 30 pounds heavier than he used to be – to say nothing of a few years older.  Trust me – I gain 10 pounds and it goes directly to my face – and if you don’t believe me, compare episodes of Billy Masters LIVE from the beginning of the pandemic to now.  Leave Zac alone!

Delve Deep with Del

Last week’s Billy Masters LIVE featured Del Shores – the prolific playwright, director, producer, and all-around auteur.  We’ve known each other for years, but have never been particularly close.  I have enormous respect for him and his work – in fact, the last play I saw prior to the pandemic was This Side of Crazy, his latest effort at the Zephyr Theatre in Los Angeles.  So when I had a last-minute opening in my schedule, I asked Del to be on, and he graciously accepted.  There are some who feel perhaps I was a bit intrusive with some of my questions.  What can I say?  I’m a naturally curious person, and I ask the questions many of you have.  Afterwards, Del said he enjoyed himself and found the interview “cathartic”.  If you want to know things that only I would ask, check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.  And, again, thanks Del!

Sebastian Shows All

Our Ask Billy question comes from Frank in Detroit: “I heard Sebastian Stan shows all in his new movie.  Do you have it?”

Have it, love it, happy to share it – which is what I say to pretty much everything…except dessert.  In the new movie Monday, the sexy Sebastian and onscreen galpal decide to ride a motorcycle through the streets of Athens completely naked.  Needless to say, this leads to a traffic infraction – probably due to helmet laws!  So, yes, his walk of shame is completely au naturel.  And, naturally, you can see it on BillyMasters.com.

When we’re showing Sebastian’s hog, it’s time to end another column.  And what a column it was!  Love, death, the pursuit of happiness.  The only thing missing was taxes – thank God for that extension.  You know what won’t tax you?  Going to www.BillyMasters.com – the site that always delivers a big return.  If you have a question, send it to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I’ll get back to you before Colton loses his gay virginity (which, I suspect, might require the assistance of a time machine).  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

 

Princess Di Out

Princess Diana Comes Out!  Well, that’s what all the headlines said.  Emma Corrin – who plays Diana on The Crown” – posted some photos on Instagram in a wedding dress from a photo spread in Pop magazine with the caption “ur fave queer bride” and the hashtags #POP44 OUT NOW.

The musical about Princess Diana was in previews on Broadway when the pandemic hit.  It’s been announced that the show will resume previews on December 1st, and opening night is now scheduled for December 16th.  Should you not be able to score tix (or not be ready to attend a public gathering), you can watch the show from the comfort of your own home courtesy of Netflix.  During the pandemic, the production resumed rehearsals with strict Covid protocols, recorded a cast album, and filmed a performance onstage without an audience.  It drops on October 1st.

 

Royal Gossip

Last week, Billy Masters LIVE was all about the British royals.  Between Harry and Meghan and William and Kate, we had lots to talk about with royal expert, Richard Mineards.  And then Prince Philip up and died – not unexpected at age 99.  Mineards was right on the money, and everything he told us would happen did.  Of course, you can watch Billy Masters LIVE, which you can watch on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

For me – a vociferous Anglophile (although I do sleep with non-Brits) – I found Prince Philip’s funeral a sad event.  Not for Philip, but for poor Queen Elizabeth II.  If there’s anything sadder than watching an old woman with a hump shuffle into a church all alone, it’s seeing said woman sitting by herself in a section of a chapel designed for hundreds!  But all eyes were on William and Harry.  Per the prepared choreography of the day, they were separated during the procession to St. George’s Chapel by their cousin, Peter Phillips (Princess Anne’s son).  To be more accurate, while Pete stood between the brothers, he purposely walked a step behind.  And here’s a fun fact – when Phillips was born, QE2 offered to give him a title as a courtesy since he was her first grandchild.  Both of his parents declined.  Keep that in mind next time you hear grumblings about titles.  While William and Harry were separated walking to the chapel, they walked out together – accompanied by Kate.

By the by, either we gays are more popular than anyone imagined, or we just love the royals.  CNN’s coverage was anchored by Anderson Cooper and Richard QuestABC had Mrs. Muir and James Longman.  The televised event was somewhat contentious in the UK.  Permission for news websites to livestream the funeral was denied.  Buckingham Palace said that in the UK, the only place to watch it online was on the Royal Family’s YouTube channel.  Prior to the funeral, their channel only had 779K subscribers.  It’s now up to 815K.  Talk about clickbait.

 

Colton Guided Out

Colton Underwood is gay.  This, of course, is no surprise to any of my loyal readers.  Way back in September of 2018, I quoted Colton’s tearful farewell to Bachelor in Paradise: “I just honestly feel there’s something wrong with me, ‘cause I’ve never wanted something as bad as I wanted it to work.  I want somebody I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with.  I really did give it my all, I really did try.  I don’t deserve her.  I’m broken.”  I followed that up with, “You’re not broken…you’re just…”  I honestly believe that the last person to know Colton was gay was Colton.  Sure, he had those feelings since high school.  But given his background, he fought it – and even attempted suicide.  So, his finally coming out is a good thing.

What most people don’t know is how these things get orchestrated.  His coming out interview with Robin Roberts is a major storyline for a new Netflix reality show, which has been in production for weeks.  On said show, he’ll be “guided” (their word) by Gus Kenworthy – and I think we all know where that’ll end up.  Many gay men have voiced their dissent.  I suspect jealousy plays a part – Colton is attractive, has some money, has been on TV, and now is getting paid to sleep with a bunch of hot guys.  Or am I projecting?  BTW, he “wrote” a book that came out last March called, ironically enough, The First Time: Finding Myself and Looking for Love on Reality TV.  The paperback edition was released a few weeks ago, and the cover promised “With a New Afterword”.  It’s amazing how out of date a book can become in a matter of days.

Someone doing an about-face (or flipping another part of his anatomy) is Billy Eichner.  When Colton was The Bachelor, Eichner appeared on that show saying, “I’m gay.  I know that’s a shock, Colton…Maybe you’re the first gay Bachelor and we don’t even know!”   Of course, Colton laughed – in that way he wouldn’t have if Kenworthy were making the quip (not that I think he could land that joke).  Billy has since apologized for the barb in light of Colton coming out – and because, you know, Colton’s hot.

Lone Star Stud Comes Out

Sexy men are a perfect segue to our Ask Billy question.  Harry in Texas writes, “I heard that Ronen Rubinstein just came out.  What do you know about him?  Does he have a boyfriend?”

Hold your horses, cowboy.  The Israeli actor from 9-1-1: Lone Star did make an announcement – but he didn’t exactly come out: “I fully identify as bisexual.  I literally just got goosebumps saying that.”  Is that what goosebumps feel like?  Frankly, they leave me cold.  Still, bisexuality is typically a brief pit stop on the road to homosexuality.  Apparently he’s had an inkling since high school.  “I was aware of my feelings and how I started looking at men, but I couldn’t talk to anybody about it.”  Alas, he also revealed he has a girlfriend.  So, why the big announcement?  “I wanted people to know that this is a hopeful and a happy story.”  I’m hopeful that he’ll eventually date a happy dude.  You want a real happy ending?  Go to BillyMasters.com, where we’ll post some sexy shots of Ronen.

When I’m in need of some CPR from a hot EMT, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  If you need a bit of TLC, check out www.BillyMasters.com – the site guaranteed to get your heart racing.  For all your non-emergency needs, drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I find myself in a pickle – or a pickle is found in me!  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

 

The Talk Plot Thickens

My previous coverage of The Talk kerfuffle should have left no question as to where my loyalties lie.  But lest my opinion be too subtle, let me clarify – there was clearly a concentrated campaign to oust Sharon Osbourne.  When asked on her podcast if Sharon has reached out to her since the dust-up, Sheryl said, “No”.  And that’s a lie.  Osbourne released screenshots of two messages she sent to Underwood – one the day after the incident, and one a few days after that.  “I not only sent these messages to Sheryl but I apologized to her in person in her dressing room.  Why are you saying I never apologized Sheryl?  What are you trying to do to me?  Why are you trying to destroy my reputation?” asked Sharon.  Why indeed.

Bills, Bills, Bills

You’ve gotta hand it to the Brits.  While the US is still dickering over what portrait of Harriet Tubman should grace a redesigned $20 bill (we hear it is a priority of the Biden administration), the Brits have selected a visage of Alan Turing for their shiny new £50 note (that’s 50 pounds for you Continental types).  The famed mathematician is known as the father of modern computers and helped the Allies beat the Nazis by cracking their code.  Since being gay was a crime, Turing was later arrested and charged with gross indecency.  He made a deal to avoid prison by agreeing to be chemically castrated with female hormones – which made him grow breasts and go somewhat mad.  He took his own life in 1954 at the age of 41.  The new £50 note with his image will be released on June 23, 2021.

Pickles & Maye in Florida

Greetings from Florida – or, as I like to call it, Ground Zero.  I understand that people have pent-up energy from social distancing, but one man found a creative form of companionship.  The headline is what caught my eye – “Florida Man Caught Pleasuring Himself with Produce”.  Police in Tampa were called to a townhouse where a man was found lying outside unconscious after “using a pickle to penetrate his rectum while he was masturbating”.  So many questions.  First up, he was found at 4PM – why, it wasn’t even happy hour!  I also noted that the pickle wasn’t even taken into evidence.  And, what is the man’s religion?  If he’s Jewish, perhaps he used kosher dill!

Only something mighty special (or a few Fireball shots) would get me to enter the belly of the beast.  The mighty special event was the 93rd birthday of the marvelous Marilyn Maye.  Her sold-out run at the Wick Theatre in Boca Raton was such a success, they had to add shows.  Auntie Marilyn – especially when accompanied by Billy Stritch – never disappoints.  In fact, I think she’s in better voice now than ever.  Mo Rocca was there to capture the event for CBS, and Marilyn was fêted by such luminaries as the Countess Luann, attorney Mark Sendroff, director Richard Jay-Alexander, Randy Roberts and Varla Jean Merman, and oodles of others.  Photos and videos can be found on BillyMasters.com.

 

Disney Prince Shows All

Our Ask Billy question comes from Jared in Rhode Island: “I’m totally in love with Franek Skywalker.  He’s so freaking hawt, great ass, and has a huge dick.  He says he was on a Disney Channel show.  Is that true?”

Franek is very popular on social media.  He describes himself as a “real-life Disney prince” – and that’s true.  In his younger years, he had been on Do Dzwonka.  Ring a bell?  Probably not.  It was the Polish version of As the Bell Rings (I never heard of the US version).  These days, he’s a model with an OnlyFans page.  Jared is right – Franek is hot – if you like a great face, a perfectly sculpted torso, rock-hard ass, and impressive penis.  Check out BillyMasters.com and decide for yourself.

When a Disney prince is showing off his Polish sausage and buns, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  I’ve suddenly got a hankering for some kielbasa.  While I grab something to munch on, you can check out loads of tasty treats on www.BillyMasters.com – the site that’ll whet your appetite.  If you have a question for me, dash it off to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Ruta kisses Franek’s ass!  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

 

Ruta & Billy Together Again

Without question, it would be blasphemous to miss a single episode of Billy Masters LIVE.  Last week, we celebrated our one-year anniversary with my favorite sparring partner – NECN political commentator Sue O’Connell.  Then we were joined by Mack Beggs, the trans male wrestler fighting for the rights of all trans athletes.  It was a provocative conversation which – and brace yourselves – actually got me to consider changing my often intransigent views.  We didn’t come up with any solutions, but maybe you will when you watch it on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

Things will get very lively on Thursday, April 8th when I’m joined by one of my favorite people.  Ruta Lee is a Hollywood legend and one of the great raconteurs.  From classic films like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, to timeless small-screen shows like The Twilight Zone, or stage musicals like Hello, Dolly, she always delivers.  Her new autobiography, Consider Your Ass Kissed is filled with dish and dirt up and down Hollywood Boulevard – where she has a Star!  We’ll talk about her life, career, and philanthropy – primarily as a founding member of The Thalians.  Consider yourself reminded to tune in.

 

Satantic Sneakers Suit

Lil Nas X partnered with MSCHF for limited-edition sneakers to be released in conjunction with his latest song (and epic video), “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.  When I saw the prototype, I was shocked.  Unless Nas was in business with Nike, this was obviously trademark infringement.  Aside from appropriating the Nike logo, the company’s Air Max design was clearly copied.  I expected a suit, I didn’t expect it would be about blood.  Oh, yes – each of Lil Nas X’s limited edition of 666 pairs allegedly includes a drop of human blood!  BTW, MSCHF previously produced Jesus Shoes, which allegedly had a drop of water from the River Jordan…blessed by a priest!  Nike was outraged.  “We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF.  Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them,” said the sneaker giant – and you’ve gotta love a corporate press release that refers to Nas as “Little”.  They demanded all the shoes be destroyed.  Problem is, they’ve already “soled” out!

 

Legal Woes in the Air

It must be Spring, because all of a sudden there’s a flurry of legal activity in the air.  Remember Benjamin Crosswhite?  Let me jog your memory – he was the “personal trainer” to Jerry Falwell Jr. who was given an 18-acre fitness facility and $650K for “services rendered”.  He’s filed a lawsuit against the Reuters media outlet because they referred to him as “another pool boy”.  Benji claims their account of the affair caused him “scorn, ridicule, and public humiliation”.  One bit of the suit caught my eye – prior to the Reuters report, “Ben enjoyed an untarnished reputation as a personal trainer and businessman.”

Next up is a surprising sex scandal involving Matt Gaetz.  I call it “surprising” because nowhere is there any mention of other men, boys, or his “adopted son”.  No, believe it or not, the Republican Congressman from Florida is being investigated for an alleged sexual relationship with a teenage GIRL!  I know – shocking!  It’s also alleged that Matt paid a 17-year-old girl to “travel” with him.  We hear that the payment could have been in cash, drugs, or a combo platter.  Crossing state lines means charges of sex trafficking are being investigated, and Gaetz is being probed.  I will suppress the obvious joke.

Glee Reunion Drama

You may have heard that members of the cast of Glee will reunite to pay tribute to Naya Rivera.  However, one person who most certainly will not be in attendance is Lea Michele.  Lea and Naya had what could politely be referred to as a combative relationship – and by “combative”, think Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.  The question is not whether she didn’t want to appear – it’s if she was asked NOT to.  My sources tell me that several members of the cast made it clear – if Lea’s involved, they wouldn’t participate.  But she’s more than welcome to watch the GLAAD Media Awards on April 8th at 8PM Eastern on their YouTube channel (or at 10PM on Hulu).

Billy’s Got Mack Beggs

I know you were all watching Billy Masters LIVE with my special guest, Christopher Atkins.  I had no idea the whole show would be about penises!  Flaccid penises, semi-erect penises, and lots of talk about – you guessed it – penises (with numerous visual aids).  When preparing for the show, I watched a whole lotta Christopher Atkins, to the point that my carpal tunnel started flaring up.  Turns out, he’s done loads of full-frontal work, which you know I brought up – and which you can see on BillyMasters.com.  We also discussed memorable moments in his past, present, and future – which includes writing, directing, and reality.  And ghosts!  Oh, and a juicy story about Gina Lollobrigida!  I kid you not.  Check it out on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

Believe it or not, it’s our anniversary.  Our first official episode was on March 31, 2020.  Time flies…in quarantine!  So on Thursday, April 1st, we’ve got another episode ripped from the headlines.  Have you been following the story of Mack Beggs?  He’s the trans male wrestler who is fighting for his right to compete against men and not women.  Mack will be our special guest, so definitely tune into Billy Masters LIVE.  ‘Cause if we’re there, we’re live.

Ellen DeGeneres’ Drama

There’s other trouble in daytime.  According to Nielsen (the ratings company – not Brigitte), Ellen has lost roughly one MILLION viewers!  It bears noting that her season premiere back in September was the highest-rated episode in more than four years.  Why?  Because everyone wanted to see how Ellen would address the “toxic workplace” claims.  They came, they saw, they tuned out.  And the ratings plummeted.  Troublesome times. 

Recently, it was Portia DeRossi DeGeneres who was in trouble.  You would already know this story if you were still watching Ellen.  This is how DeGeneres opened her show last Tuesday:  “How was everybody’s weekend?  Anybody else have to rush their wife to the emergency room for an appendectomy?  Anybody?  No?  Just me?”  Yes, just her.  One night, the couple went to bed early.  Ellen awoke to find Portia “on the floor on all fours”.  My first thought was DeRossi was in the mood for a spirited game of leapfrog – because, I must confess, I’m not well-versed in the art of lesbian sex.  Turns out, it was neither sexual nor amphibial.  Ellen drove Portia to the hospital, but couldn’t go in with her due to Covid restrictions.  The next morning, she got a call that they’d have to slice Portia open like a sturgeon.  Bing, bang, boom – appendix out.  See all the excitement you miss when don’t tune in?

 

Sharon Osbourne’s Out

I hate to say I called it, but I called it – Sharon Osbourne has left The Talk.  Left/Pushed/Fired…who knows.  But she’s out.  In a situation that has had more twists and turns than Ratatouille (the film, not the yummy French stew), the sole remaining original co-host is history.  As you know, it started with Osbourne standing up for the rights of a commentator to express his opinion and led to Sharon accused of being a racist on live television.  Then she was chastised for being outraged at the premeditated attack.  But, it doesn’t end there.  Several rumors are floating around CBS Studio City.  Some people claim the network will use this situation as an excuse to axe the ratings-challenged talker.  Another is that a newbie to the panel has designs on running the show.  And a third is that creator and former moderator Sara Gilbert will be offered any amount of money to come back.  Stay tuned.

More Nudity on Riverdale

Our Ask Billy question comes from George in Pasadena: “I heard that someone on Riverdale did gay porn.  Who was it?  My money’s on KJ Apa.”

While Apa has shown his share of skin, it wasn’t him – although a year or so ago, a photo of an erect penis surfaced that allegedly stems from one of his online trysts.  And it wasn’t Charles Melton, who plays Reggie (actually he’s the second Reggie, but that’s another story).  The closest Melton got to gay porn was posing nude for D&G.  The Riverdale actor who allegedly did gay porn was Tommy Martinez, who plays Malachai.  But let’s be clear – he also allegedly did straight porn.  He goes under the name Logan, and his most memorable scene is called She Sucks It So Good #31.  Needless to say, all of these guys can be found on BillyMasters.com.

 

Christopher Atkins Bare

I’ll be waiting with Christopher Atkins.  Oh, yes, THAT Christopher Atkins – the pin-up that everyone reading this column had impure thoughts about (and wore out the stripping scene on their VHS copy of A Night in Heaven).  I used to dream about walking into my high school reunion with Atkins on my arm.  The next best thing is Christopher Atkins coming on Billy Masters LIVE – and if you read that phrase the correct way, it’s awfully titillating.  On Thursday, March 25th at 3PM Eastern / Noon Pacific, we’ll talk about his acting, his modeling, the highs, the lows, and if he’ll buy me a corsage.  You can watch on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

Last Thursday’s show was a HOOT!  Martha Wash is a diva who dishes.  She tells it like it is and, honey, I was surprised by some of the things she had to say.  When Jeanie Tracy joined us, we got into some Sylvester stories.  I think we’ll do a whole Sylvester tribute show during Pride month.
