Naked Boys Not Singing

Our Ask Billy question comes from Tom in Orlando: “I just saw some very sexy nude photos of actor Chris Salvatore online.  Didn’t I read about him in your column?  Where would I know him from?”

You may have seen him in the Eating Out flicks.  Or, if you’re in Nevada, you may have seen every inch of him in the Las Vegas production of Naked Boys Singing (we have footage from the show on our website).  These latest shots come from a revealing B&W pictorial that highlights various portions of Salvatore’s anatomy.  While you can see a plethora of Chris’ wares on his OnlyFans page, we’ll show you the meat and potatoes on BillyMasters.com.

When we’re sharing Salvatore’s cornucopia, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  But before we wrap up our Thanksgiving leftovers, I want to give thanks to the people behind the scenes – our webmaster, editors, and legal counsel, to say nothing of my personal fluffers who ensure that each and every column is bursting with content.  You can find the fruits of our labor on www.BillyMasters.com – the site that has more fruit than a pitcher of sangria!  Should you have a question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Matt Gaetz takes credit for helping Kyle get off!  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

Upcoming Holiday Flix

Gay will be everywhere throughout the holiday season.  Netflix’s first gay holiday flick is Single All the Way, which will star Michael Urie, Luke Macfarlane (also in the aforementioned Bros), Kathy Najimy and Jennifer Coolidge.  It debuts on December 2nd.

Should you be more interested in donning some gay apparel, The Bitch Who Stole Christmas features the largest group of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums to ever be assembled.  In addition to Ru (who is obviously the star), this flick includes Kimora Blac, Pandora Boxx, Heidi N. Closet, Laganja Estranja, Gottmik, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Jan, Kylie Sonique Love, Manila Luzon, Ginger Minj, Jaymes Mansfield, Kelly Mantle, Morgan McMichaels, Chad Michaels, Mayhem Miller, Peppermint, Porkchop, Raven, Latrice Royale, and Rock M. Sakura.  In addition to the girls, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews, and Michelle Visage will also appear…alongside Charo!!!  Look for VH1 to drop this inevitable holiday classic on December 2nd.

A Buncha Suits

Some stories linger in the ether like a noxious fumes.  Take Jussie Smollett.  You’ll recall that after it was alleged that he was complicit with those mega-hot Nigerian brothers in concocting assault claims, he was charged with felony disorderly conduct for making a false report to the police.  At one point, he had a deal to make the whole thing go away.  He simply had to repay the City of Chicago the $130K they spent investigating the incident.  He declined, the wheels of justice are turning, and a trial is looming.  Smollett moved to have the case dropped, but a new judge quashed that motion.  In perhaps an effort to rehabilitate his image, Jussie donated a carload of items to the Jenesse Center – an LA non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence.  He even enlisted the aid of his sister, Jurnee Smollett…talk about domestic violence!  The trial is slated to commence next week.

The most surprising story of the week concerns Tina Turner suing an impersonator!  This immediately brought to mind another case – Joan Rivers v. Frank Marino.  In that suit, Rivers was upset because Marino was performing many of the same routines that Rivers was doing in her act.  This case is different because Tina retired from the stage in 2009!  And yet she’s still suing Dorothea “Coco” Fletcher.  We’re told that Turner’s team feels Fletcher looks a bit too much like the real thing – which is also strange because she’s 50 years younger!

There’s been a new development in the case between Anthony Rapp and Kevin Spacey.  Back in 2017, a reporter contacted Spacey’s publicists and lawyers tipping them off about “Rapp’s assertion that the defendant made a sexual advance on him in 1986 when Rapp was 14 years old.”  This led to an intense e-mail thread between Spacey, his manager, his two lawyers, and his two publicists.  And therein lies the problem.  “None is a communication between the defendant and his lawyers without one or more of the manager and the PR people at least copied on the email.  Such communications are not lawyer-client communications made in confidence and/or generated for litigation,” says the judge.  Reminiscent of Hillary Clinton – Spacey needs to produce those e-mails or suffer the consequences.

Get Off With Gaetz

Well, there’s no getting around it – we must tackle the biggest story of the day; the story on everyone’s lips; the story that has kept you up day and night.  Did Derek Hough give Len Goodman the coronavirus?  If he was going to infect someone, why, oh why, couldn’t it have been Tyra?  Here we are, writing this on the eve of the Dancing with the Stars finale, and the golden boy of the ballroom has been felled (yes, I said “felled” – look it up).  Since he’s in quarantine, one assumes he won’t be able to judge the finale – unless they employ some sort of remote hook-up.  Personally, I think the show works better with three judges anyway.

Many of you are upset about the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict – although, why anyone is surprised is a mystery to me.  Clearly, Wisconsin law was on his side, to say nothing of the judge, who inexplicably refused to allow the dead people to be referred to as “victims”.  Perhaps the term “people the defendant shot and killed” would have been OK – although not quite as succinct.  In addition to his freedom, Kyle has something to look forward to.  Matt Gaetz is considering inviting him to become a Congressional intern.  Those interns have a long history of curious positions.  Some end up on top of the desk.  Some, like Joe Scarborough’s, end up underneath.

 

Billy Masters hits 100

The gay son of a friend recently asked me to meet him out.  I suggested a local gay bar.  When he arrived, he said, “Phew – I’m glad they didn’t question my ID.”  Why would they question it?  “It’s a fake – I don’t turn 21 until January.”  I felt like I was corrupting a youth – a feeling I know from when I was a youth!  While noting the looks we got from the older patrons (even older than moi), I thought – here I am with this adorable tyke, less than half my age, and I didn’t even win an Oscar!  That being said, the young are exhausting!  While youth may be wasted on the young, you need to be young to keep up.

Last week, we celebrated the 100th episode of Billy Masters LIVE with Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr.  The famed duo talked about The Fifth Dimension, their appearance in the documentary Summer of Soul, their duo work, their solo work, and even a joint appearance in Dreamgirls which you have to hear to believe!  This week, we’re hosting another panel discussion, because there’s a whole lot to discuss.  You can watch us live on Thursday at 3PM Eastern, Noon Pacific.  Or tune in whenever at BillyMasters.com/TV or at YouTube.com/BillyMastersTV.

Ingo and Dick

It’s been a tumultuous week for Ingo Rademacher.  One of the legacy stars of General Hospital re-Tweeted a post which questioned whether US Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine is “an empowering woman” and referred to her as “dude” (Levine is transgender).  People quickly accused Ingo of being transphobic.  His GH co-star, Cassandra James (who is trans), took him to task.  Ingo immediately Tweeted an apology: “Cassandra, I apologize to you sincerely.  I think you’re an absolute talent and you’re very beautiful as well.  I don’t think a transphobic man would say that.  I think you’re absolutely gorgeous, I really do” – which then led many to question if Ingo was only OK with good-looking trans people…or perhaps had a little crush.  He also shared an anecdote about when his 3-year-old son “wanted to look pretty.  I don’t think a transphobic dad would buy his son a Disney princess dress.”  Days later, it was announced that Ingo was no longer a part of GH.  His last air date is November 22nd.  While no reason for his departure was given (speculation runs from his anti-vax stance to this trans scandal), GH Tweeted this: “General Hospital stands in solidarity with the trans community.”

Another day, another arrest for Andy Dick.  According to reports, police were called to Dick’s home after he reportedly hit his boyfriend, Lucas, with a bottle.  A month earlier, he allegedly hit Lucas with a frying pan!  Andy’s ex-fiancée Elisa Jordana says that in June, he smashed Lucas over the head with a metal chair.  “He could have killed him!” says Elisa.  I normally don’t get into victim blaming, but at what point will Lucas stay away?

Harvey Milk and the Seamen

Our community has made enormous strides since I came out some three decades ago – a point driven home when I learned that the US Navy named a ship after Harvey Milk!  The gay rights advocate was assassinated in 1978 at a time when the idea of being openly gay in the military was unfathomable.  The naming ceremony of the USNS Harvey Milk took place in San Diego and was attended by the Secretary of the Navy, Carlos Del Toro.  “There is no doubt that the future sailors aboard this ship will be inspired by Milk’s life and legacy,” said Del Toro.  Somewhere, Milk is smiling at the thought of his namesake being boarded by thousands of young sailors.

Gay at the CMA

“I was like, ‘I hope this doesn’t make anyone uncomfortable,
but this is how I feel.’  I love this person, and I want to be open in
every way…and hopefully show people that they also don’t
need to hide or alter themselves in any way.
 
T.J. Osborne discusses his trepidation at bringing beau Abi with him to the CMA Awards
He says he felt “so accepted and loved by my peers”…so much so that he was comfortable
enough to kiss Abi on the lips when he and his brother won Vocal Duo of the Year.

Sheeran’s Blind Item

Last week, Ed Sheeran revealed that for a brief time as a teen, he thought he might be gay.  “I love musical theater, I love pop music, I love Britney Spears.”  I hate to break it to him, but you also really have to love dick.

Our “Could it be…” item comes courtesy of Sheeran himself, who recently shared this anecdote about a fellow unnamed pop star: “We were just in a club with a shower in it and I turned around and he was naked.  I remember looking at his entourage and everyone was on their phone.  He is naked and walking around doing stuff, gets in the shower and the hot tub naked, he gets out of the hot tub and I was like, ‘Does nobody think this is weird?’  And he puts his clothes on and then the night resumed.  That was quite a strange situation.”  I vote for Sam Smith – who Ed previously revealed he’s gone to pubs with and gave him a statue of a penis for his birthday.

 

Curious Casting

People keep asking Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber how he feels about casting trans actors.  Here’s his latest response: “I’ve got nothing against a trans performer.  The question is are they the best person for the role?  You always want to cast the best person possible for the role.  It really doesn’t matter what they are or what color they are.  It really doesn’t matter.  That’s always been my mantra.”  When specifically asked if he would cast a trans woman as Christine in Phantom of the Opera, he said, “Yes.  If she could sing it.”

Of course, there’s more to being in a musical than just singing.  You’ve also got to be able to act the part.  I thought about that when I read plans for a film version of WickedCynthia Erivo is an inspired choice as Elphaba.  Not only is she a dynamic singer, she’s also an Oscar-nominated actress (not to mention a Tony– and Emmy-winning one).  Then there’s Ariana Grande as Galinda.  She certainly can sing, but I reserve judgement on her acting ability.

This is another blow to poor Lea Michele.  In addition to having the Broadway revival of Funny Girl snatched away from her…twice, she’s also voiced her desire to play Elphaba in the Wicked film.  At least she’ll get to revisit one of her early successes.  The original cast of Spring Awakening is reuniting for a one-night-only benefit for the Actors Fund.  Lea will join Jonathan Groff and John Gallagher Jr. on November 15th at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway.  So, mark it on your calendars – for one night only in 2021, Lea Michele has something to do.

I always love seeing what different actors will do with the play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.  I still mourn the Broadway production with Laurie Metcalf, Rupert Everett, and Russell Tovey which closed after nine previews due to Covid.  So I was intrigued when I heard of a revival coming to the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.  Then I read that Zachary Quinto and Calista Flockhart were cast.  Hmmm – kinda old to play Nick and Honey, but maybe opposite the right George and Martha.  Strike that – Zach and Cali ARE George and Martha.  The production opens on April 19th.  I dunno…

Far more palpable is news that Quinto has been cast opposite Lukas Gage in the rom-com, Down Low.  The flick will also star Audra McDonald, Judith Light and Simon Rex, who is currently enjoying a bit of a renaissance.  Fun fact – Lukas also co-wrote the script and personally asked for Quinto to be cast.  Someone’s got daddy issues.

 

Go-Go’s Get Inducted

For eons, The Go-Go’s bemoaned the fact that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame would never acknowledge their place in music history.  Anger turned to acceptance and eventually, the girls embraced their status as underdogs.  Of course, this led to them being accepted – isn’t that the way it always is?  The Go-Go’s were inducted last week, alongside such artists as Tina Turner, Carole King, and Jay-Z.  An early fan, Drew Barrymore, introduced the ladies – and did so by donning a bath towel and putting cold cream on her face…an homage to The Go-Go’s first album, Beauty and the Beat.  Watching Kathy Valentine, Gina Schock, Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle and Jane Wiedlin on that stage, I was struck by how emotional they were.  Clearly being accepted meant more than they could have imagined.  The entire ceremony will be broadcast on HBO Max on November 20th.

The Pasadena Playhouse is mounting a production of Head Over Heels.  The Broadway show, which features music by The Go-Go’s, has been thoroughly re-imagined and trimmed down to a one-act, 90-minute immersive romp taking place throughout the venue and encouraging dancing from the audience.  Even better, it features our pals Alaska Thunderfuck as Queen Gynecia and Lea DeLaria as King Basilius – you’re not gonna find a queerer royal couple than that!  It runs through December 12th, so grab your tickets now at PasadenaPlayhouse.org.

Divas of Daytime

Sherri Shepherd is having a busy fall.  She kicked off October by returning to The View for a week – the only former co-host invited back for such a lengthy return.  She kicked off November by hosting The Wendy Williams Show for a week – which inspired fans to start a petition for her to take over the show…should Wendy be unable to fulfill her duties.  But she’s not the only sassy black lady in daytime.  Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson wants to replace Ellen DeGeneres!  We hear that she filmed a pilot on Ellen’s set with Ellen’s crew.  Warner Bros. is itchy to get the American Idol alum to go head-to-head with Kelly Clarkson.  Didn’t she already do that on The Voice?

If anyone wants the crown of Queen of Daytime, they’re gonna have to pry it from Susan Lucci’s cold, dead scalp.  Yes, La Lucci is poised for a comeback…as Erica Kane!  ABC is developing Pine Valley and plans to bring back some key players from All My Children alongside some fresh meat.  Susan says if the show gets the green light, she’s in.  She joins previously attached stars Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, who will also executive produce.

Gay Couples Get Hitched

We’re happy to announce the marriage of Jason Gotay from Gossip Girl and his diminutive spouse, Michael Hartung.  Their “elevated backyard ceremony” served pizza and s’mores, and the grooms wore white leather Dr. Martens sneakers.  We wish them many years of happiness.

We also want to send congratulations out to Kal Penn on his engagement to his longtime partner…Josh.  But we have to ask – are we the last to know?

Trans Actor Sues Hamilton

One of the stories we didn’t get to on Billy Masters LIVE was about Suni Reid.  Suni is a trans actor who claims to have been discriminated against by the producers of the musical Hamilton.  Reid is a “non-binary performer” and “openly transgender” – the details of which are unknown to moi.  However, “they” is a member of the touring company’s ensemble, and has occasionally been cast in the roles of George Washington, James Madison and Aaron Burr.  Most theatres have a limited backstage area, which means most performers share dressing rooms.  And ensemble players are either in a large male or female dressing room.  Apparently Suni was assigned to a male dressing room.  Reid requested a gender-neutral dressing room – which, naturally, doesn’t exist.  The producers offered to partition off a section of the ensemble room with a curtain, which “they” did not find acceptable.  When Suni’s contract was up, it was not renewed.  Reid has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and, I would guess, is having a devil of a time finding work.

By the by, the Mr. Gay World competition has announced that anyone who identifies as male is allowed to compete.  But they better not ask for their own dressing room.

B Positive Gets Revamped

Almost nothing surprises me – the wall coming down, the Trump presidency, even Tickle Me Elmo.  But I am completely surprised by B Positive.  If you haven’t been watching – and ratings would indicate that you’re not – it’s a mediocre sitcom with some very talented actors, decent writing, and a crappy theme song accompanied by a really creepy video montage in the style of Monty Python.  In season one, the male lead needed a kidney transplant and was surrounded by dialysis patients and a female lead as his donor.  The season ended with him surviving his transplant surgery.  The end, right?  In season two, his donor (who he’s secretly in love with) comes into millions of dollars, buys a retirement home, and hires the sassy gay dialysis nurse – played by the delicious Darryl Stephens.  The home is populated by such talented oldsters as Linda Lavin, Ben Vereen, Hector Elizondo, and a scene-stealing Jane Seymour.  If I were to describe B Positive now, I’d call it a mediocre show with some very talented actors, decent writing, and a crappy theme song accompanied by a ridiculous video montage in the style of Moulin Rouge.  I don’t know if it’s better or worse – but kudos for the flip.

 

Neil Patrick Gets Uncoupled

Neil Patrick Harris is not only a gay man in real life – he’ll be playing one on television.  NPH’s latest career move is a Netflix series called Uncoupled.  This Darren Star show is about the uncoupling (hence the name) of Harris and his partner of 17 years, played by Tuc Watkins.  According to the producers, “Overnight, [Harris’ character] has to confront two nightmares – losing what he thought was his soulmate and suddenly finding himself a single gay man in his mid-40s in New York City.”  Am I the only one who thinks that doesn’t sound so bad?  Also cast are Brooks Ashmanskas, Marcia Gay Harden and Tisha Campbell.  Eight episodes have been ordered.

While many people are bemoaning the imminent end of Grace and Frankie, fear not – Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda aren’t done with each other (the remaining episodes of the final season will drop later this year).  The actresses will co-star in Moving On, a film about two friends who run into each other at a funeral and team up to get back at a widower from their past.  Has anyone called Dolly?

 

Nude Look-a-Like

Our Ask Billy question came from Robert in New York – and he attached a photo: “You mentioned Ramin Karimloo a couple of weeks ago.  Is this a nude shot of him?”

My heart skipped a beat when I thought I was getting a nude photo of Ramin Karimloo in the mail.  Alas, it wasn’t Karimloo.  It was model Andrew Biernat – who, admittedly, has some Karimloo in him (something I wish I could say).  Should you be interested, I’ll post it on BillyMasters.com.

More Reboots

Over the years, there have been numerous discussions about a reboot of LA Law and what that would look like – particularly given the starry list of alums.  The new show would find Blair Underwood and Corbin Bernsen reprising their roles.  The oldsters would be leading the firm and dealing with a new group of young, hungry millennials.  ABC has ordered a pilot, which is being overseen by creator Steven Bochco’s son, Jesse.  No word yet on any other former cast members who might pop up, but we’re told guest appearances are likely.  After all, what else does Susan Dey have to do?

Candace Bushnell says she has no involvement with the Sex and the City sequel series – And Just Like That….  “They rebooted Gossip Girl.  If they didn’t reboot Sex and the City, it would be really strange.”  While Bushnell says she doesn’t know what the show is about, she will tune in when it debuts on HBO Max in December.

I’m sure you’ve heard that there will be a sequel to The White Lotus next season.  It will feature a new group of travelers visiting a different high-end resort – likely in Europe.  However, my sources tell me that Jennifer Coolidge is in negotiations to be the sole returning globetrotter.  YAY!

 

Batwoman Fights Back

Being Batwoman can be hazardous to your health.  Remember Ruby Rose?  The first Batwoman on The CW left the show at the end of the first season in an air of mystery.  She’s now telling all on social media.  “To my dear, dear fans still asking if I will return to that awful show.  I wouldn’t return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head.”  So far, this sounds like Meghan McCain’s exit interview from The View!  She says she never quit – she was ordered to return to the set 10 days after surgery on two herniated disks damaged during filming, and she refused to be rushed.  Rose continues by accusing the brass of ruining the character and the show, of making her sign away her rights, and of bullying and blackmailing her.  She also says that an incident on the set left her with a cut “so close to my eye…I could have been blind.”  The producers responded: “The truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”  Well that clears up…absolutely nothing.

Bad Co-Host

In terms of hazards, the show with the largest body count is probably The View.  In her endless audible book Bad Republican (there are five hours I’ll never get back), Meghan McCain talks about the toxic work environment and blames many people for troubled tenure – many people except herself.  She says Joy Behar made her cry, vomit, and lactate simultaneously!  Now, look, Joy Behar is a powerful woman.  But can she cause milk to flow?  If true, I don’t believe anyone would be prouder than Joy herself.  McCain says their relationship was never resolved after she returned from maternity leave and teased Joy by saying, “Admit it – you missed me, you missed fighting with me”, to which Joy bluntly responded, “I did not – I did not miss you.  Zero.”  She had a similar fall-out after Whoopi Goldberg chastized her with the now-infamous, “Girl, please stop talking.  Please stop talking right now.”  But could Whoopi instigate creation of a dairy product?  I think not.

More than anything, one is struck by Meghan’s hypocrisy.  When Saturday Night Live spoofed The View, Meghan would repost the clips.  In 2019, she Tweeted, “I’m not supposed to be on twitter because of hiatus BUT this sketch is hilarious, and being parodied by @SNL is a huge pop culture honor. – Signed, your old intern and ‘the princess of Arizona’.”  In the book, McCain claims the sketches made her feel like “I was the laughing stock of the country.”  It’s as if Meghan likes having it both ways – as do I, but enough about my sex life.  McCain would regularly lambast guests on The View who wrote tell-alls.  Andy Cohen asked if she felt hypocritical by writing her own tell-all.  “No,” was her succinct answer.

 

Talk About Daytime Drama

Daytime TV is in freefall.  What’s most shocking is that The View is the most stable of the bunch.  All they have to do is fill Meghan McCain’s seat – a task nobody seems in a rush to do.  Having Sherri Shepherd fill in last week reminded people what a valuable and versatile co-host she is.  But I don’t anticipate Sherri moving back east anytime soon.  And if she did, it would probably be to take over for Wendy Williams!  Wendy has delayed her season premiere TWICE because of complications after contracting the coronavirus (last spring, she told Dr. Oz she would not get the vaccine).  That triggered a flare-up of her Graves’ disease.  Producers are now scrambling for guest hosts through Thanksgiving – and I can tell you exclusively that Sherri will host the first week of November.

On the West Coast, we have The Talk – or the daytime version of The Titanic.  The show was down to two hosts – Sheryl Underwood and Amanda Kloots.  Talk about re-arranging the deck chairs!  Then they hired two guys – whose names are unimportant (except one of them was asked to leave The Talk to take over Wendy).  Then, without any warning, they hired recently departed Today show reporter Natalie Morales.  That pissed off Underwood – who never wanted to moderate, but had been enjoying ruling the roost after ousting Sharon Osbourne.  I’m told Morales was sprung on the cast as a fait accompli – which is French for “If you don’t like it, leave”.

 

Superman Comes Out

Does every superhero have to have homosexual tendencies?  Not that I’m complaining.  Sure, they’ve got perfect, rippling bodies that they exhibit in form-fitting spandex, Lycra, or some other kind of fishnet stocking.  But I’m sure some straight guys could fall into that category – although none immediately spring to mind.  The latest superhero joining our ranks is Superman.  No, not the classic Superman.  We’re talking about Jon Kent, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.  Funny, I always thought he was Superboy – but I suppose that’s a moniker that doesn’t have a long shelf life.  Here’s what DC Comics said: “Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel.”  Jay is Jay Nakamura, a longtime friend of the superlad.  The twosome share a kiss next month.

Not everyone is applauding this news.  Dean Cain, who played Superman in the ‘90s, happened to be on Fox & Friends when the story broke.  “They said it’s a bold new direction.  I say they’re bandwagoning.”  He continued, “If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would have been bold or brave.  But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay.”  While I’m sympathetic to oppressed people, I don’t know if they even have comic books in Iran.  Certainly not comic books with gay superheroes!

 

Billy & Naked Boys Singing

Last week, I too was in Las Vegas.  Coincidence???  Actually, yes.  I flew in to see Naked Boys Singing at the Jewel Box Theatre inside the Erotic Heritage Museum.  They share the space with Puppetry of the Penis – but the puppets had the night off.  I had to settle for five attractive and talented men singing some catchy songs that have a special place in my heart – no strings attached.  My long history with the creation and original cast of Naked Boys Singing was discussed in a special episode of Billy Masters LIVE last year (season 1, episode 41).  So it makes sense that our fall premiere features four members of this Vegas cast.  David Hernandez (a BML veteran), Matthew Ludwinski, Chris Salvatore, and Marcus Terell will join us on Thursday, October 21st at 3PM Eastern / Noon Pacific on BillyMasters.com/TV or at YouTube.com/BillyMastersTV.  We’ll also be airing a world premiere video from the show – you won’t want to miss it.

National Coming Out Day

I can’t believe it.  I completely missed National Coming Out Day.  Not that I typically do much of anything to celebrate.  It’s not like I’d chop down a tree, eat a special meal, or dress in a silly costume – I’m not from Arkansas!  No, I usually think about how fortunate I am to live in a time and place where people can be open about their sexual identity.  And then have anonymous sex with as many men as possible.  What can I say?  I’m a romantic.

colorbar1

It was the day after National Coming Out Day that I read about President Joe Biden condemning anti-gay legislation in various states.  That’s how you make progress.  Then I read that Carl Nassib, the openly gay pro football player, said the most important part of coming out was finding that special somebody.  See?  We have something in common.  Last night, I met a dozen special someones – none that I could identify in a police lineup, but that’s probably for the best.  Anyway, Carl said, “I just wanted to be someone’s number one priority, and I couldn’t have that.  So that was the one thing where I was like, ‘Man, I really fucking want that.’  But I got that now, so it’s good.  Oh, I met an awesome guy.  He’s the best.”

Carl declined to elaborate on who he is dating, but he did reveal that he planned on coming out a year earlier.  Blame the delay on that pesky pandemic.  While he had some trepidation about telling his story, he said, “Everyone responded so well.  I was like, ‘Damn, these are good dudes!’”  Well, not everyone.  Jon Gruden, the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders (the team Carl plays for), sent e-mails containing homophobic, transphobic, racist and misogynistic content between 2011-18 to various NFL colleagues.  While this was long before his tenure with the Raiders, he was obliged to resign over the revelation.  Consequently, Carl took a personal day.  “He just said he’s got a lot to process, there’s a lot that’s been going on the last few days, and of course we support that request,” said the team’s general manager.

Nude Scenes from Marriage

Our Ask Billy question was about someone not wearing a stitch of clothing.  Frank in Indianapolis asks, “When did Oscar Isaac appear naked?  I’ve watched every episode of Scenes from a Marriage, and I missed it.”

You aren’t the only one.  Many people have wondered where this much-discussed nude scene is.  It’s a post-coital scene when he’s talking to Jessica Chastain on the floor about needing to go “freshen up”.  It’s in episode four – roughly at the 16-minute and 39-second mark…but who’s counting?  To make it easier, you can just watch it on BillyMasters.com.

Chappelle Goes There

Dave Chappelle has stepped in it once again.  In his latest special, The Closer, he brought up the North Carolina law limiting use of public restrooms to the gender listed on one’s birth certificate.  When some people in the audience applauded, he said, “No, no, no, no – no, that’s not a good law.  That’s a mean law.  No American should have to present a birth certificate to take a shit at Walmart in Greensboro, North Carolina!”  He then went into a lengthy discussion regarding his history with the trans community – and what a history it is.  GLAAD said, “Chappelle’s brand has become synonymous with ridiculing trans people and other marginalized communities.”  And they’re right – kinda.  You know which group is typically Chappelle’s biggest target?  Black people.  Talk about a marginalized community!  Chappelle says The Closer is his last word on the trans subject.  “It’s over…I am not telling another joke about you until we are both sure that we are laughing together.”  Equality isn’t avoiding jokes about certain people; it’s treating all people the same.  And Chappelle does that.

Nontraditional Casting

We have more casting news for the Broadway revival of Funny Girl.  Nicky Arnstein will be played by Ramin Karimloo – who is not only a gifted actor and lovely singer, but possesses one of the most stupendous physiques to ever grace God’s green Earth.  While Funny Girl is not typically laden with nudity, I am hereby lobbying for the seduction scene to be done shirtless (and perhaps pantless).  The role of Mrs. Brice will be played by Jane Lynch – which I’m sure comes as a shock to people who assumed Rosie O’Donnell was a foregone conclusion.  And under the heading of colorblind, the role of Eddie will be played by the talented Jared Grimes.

And so we come to an issue nobody seems to agree upon.  When “colorblind casting” began, the intent was good – cast actors of diverse ethnicities, races, and even genders in roles where those attributes were unimportant.  It’s often called “nontraditional casting”.  Conversely, many people feel that only gay actors should play gay roles, only black actors should play black roles, etc.  Recently, Sarah Silverman joined the discussion (apropos of Kathryn Hahn being cast as Joan Rivers in an upcoming Showtime series) by saying that only Jewish people should play Jewish roles.  I, again, look at the flip side – if only Jewish people can play Jews, does this mean Jewish actors cannot play Gentiles?  Eventually we’ll be back to a point where gay actors can only be cast in gay roles.

Who would think that Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber would be the voice of reason in…well, in virtually any discussion?  He was asked about casting trans actors in musicals.  “I wouldn’t have any issue casting them, provided they could perform the role.  One’s got to think that if you had written a high coloratura soprano part, you’ve got to have somebody who can sing it.  If you’ve written a part for a deep bass voice, you’ve got to have somebody who can hit those notes.  But provided they could sing the role and you wouldn’t have to change the music, I’d have no concern at all.”  While that all sounds peachy, later in the interview he gives this critique of Madonna as Evita: “To this day, I don’t think anybody else could have done it better.”  Oh my!

Wonder Woman and Bears

“I kept hearing about Fat Bear Week and thought it was a celebration of
body positivity within a gay subculture.  It turns out it is about actual bears! 
Either way, I am here for it.
 
Lynda Carter Tweets her support to bears – both gay and otherwise.

A Whole New Cock

Back in 2009, I saw a production in London of a fascinating play featuring two very sexy young men.  They were Ben Whishaw and Andrew Scott.  And the play, by Mike Bartlett, was called Cock – often sanitized in the press as C*ck.  It was about a gay couple whose relationship is challenged when one of the men finds himself attracted to a woman.  A new version of the play will be mounted in London’s West End next March and will star Taron Egerton and Jonathan Bailey as the couple.  And it will be directed by Marianne Elliott, who is directing the Broadway version of Company.

Banderas’ Company

The daughter of Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas is legally Stella Banderas Griffith.  Why?  I don’t know – that’s what the paperwork says.  Stella has petitioned the court to drop the Griffith from her name.  She says she wants “to shorten my name by removing the extra last name…As well, I typically do not use ‘Griffith’ when referring to myself or on documents.  So, dropping the name would match my regular use.”  Might I suggest Hedren?

Antonio Banderas has been keeping busy with a number of projects.  His latest film, Official Competition, was a hit at the Venice Film Festival (it co-stars Penélope Cruz).  And he’s about to embark on a new theatre project.  Back in 2019, he appeared in a Spanish-language production of A Chorus Line to inaugurate his theatre company, the Teatro del Soho in Málaga, Spain.  On November 17th, he’ll be back onstage with the troupe, this time playing Bobby in a Spanish version of Sondheim’s Company.  Interestingly enough, on November 15th, the gender-swap version of Company will resume performances on Broadway.

 

RIP Tommy Kirk

In the early days of this column, readers would often ask me to track down information about some of their favorite stars of yesteryear.  One of the most popular people was Tommy Kirk, star of Old Yeller and numerous Disney films.  He was also an early victim of homophobia.  “Disney was a family film studio, and I was supposed to be their young leading man.  After they found out I was involved with someone, that was the end of Disney.”  Although his career did indeed take a hit, he did manage to find sporadic work over the years – and became somewhat legendary for going public with his sexuality at a time when it meant career suicide.  Rest in peace.

Someone else who wrestled with his sexuality was Aaron Hernandez.  Although his story has been told ad nauseum, get ready for a new take…courtesy of Ryan Murphy.  Yes, the tight end will be the subject of a new limited series called American Sports Story.  Details to follow.

 

Newsroom Dish

Remember when I told you that Rachel Maddow made a sweet deal with MSNBC?  Now that the details have gone public, some of her colleagues are not so happy – particularly because her $30 million contract set a record previously held by Matt Lauer (speaking of sexual assault).  Interestingly enough, the person most annoyed by Rachel’s raise is Savannah Guthrie.  She feels she’s being underutilized.  Funny, I think she’s utilized plenty.

Bad blood is nothing new in the news business.  Remember Barbara Walters and Harry Reasoner?  Or Barbara Walters and the chimp?  People usually don’t go public with their grievances until they have nothing to lose.  And that brings us to Katie Couric’s new memoir, Going There.  So rarely has one person been given so many opportunities and squandered each and every one.  Couric has bounced from outlet to outlet with alarming regularity.  Her last employer was Yahoo – and when you can’t make it on Yahoo, that’s that.  Some of Couric’s targets include Martha Stewart, Matt Lauer, Ashley Banfield, Larry King, Deborah Norville, and even Diane Sawyer.  “I loved that I was getting under Diane’s skin,” says Couric.  Oh, but it gets better: “I’m pretty sure I speak for Diane when I say neither of us ever resorted to actual fellatio to land an interview.”  Or, I daresay, a spouse!!  People who have read the manuscript are saying she’ll never work in news again.  I could have told you that BEFORE the book!

Incidentally, Natalie Morales has resigned from Today.  Why?  Allegedly, she’s “been offered an opportunity she’s passionate about and has decided to step away from NBC News.”  Maybe she’s the new face of Yahoo!

Hemsworth’s Package

Our Ask Billy question is a healthy diversion.  Brandon in San Diego writes, “I saw some photos of Liam Hemsworth at the beach and his package looked enormous.  I don’t suppose he’s ever shown the family jewels.”

Alas, no.  However, you did whet my appetite, so I went looking for the photos in question.  That is a very healthy bulge indeed.  But, I caution you – sometimes a package of that size is low on meat and high on potatoes.  Those of you not eschewing carbs can check him out on BillyMasters.com.

Spacey Attacks Rapp

Anthony Rapp’s case against Kevin Spacey just took a fascinating turn.  As you may recall, Spacey tried to get the abuse charges thrown out of court because Rapp’s co-defendant refused to go public with his identity.  Anthony is prevailing alone, which led Spacey to hire a psychologist to evaluate Rapp.  This professional claimed that “Rapp displays narcissistic personality traits, in that he has an excessive need for admiration, has a grandiose sense of self-importance, and believes that he is special”.  In other words, he’s an actor!  Who knew Ant and I had so much in common?  Spacey’s expert also believes that Anthony “generated and perpetuated a false memory” and has “resentment towards closeted gay actors.”  Rapp countered by asking the court to allow him to call witnesses to verify that his account of the Spacey attack has been consistent all of these years.

The Comeback Girl

Joan Rivers may no longer be with us, but she lives on in a variety of ways.  Her books, her jewelry, and her comedy specials ensure that she’ll be a presence for generations to come.  Hot on the heels of HBO’s Hacks (which is loosely inspired by Auntie Joan’s life), Showtime has announced plans for a limited series.  The Comeback Girl will find Kathryn Hahn in the role of Joan Rivers.  The series has been described thusly: “Trailblazer.  Adored.  Cruel.  Diva.  Joan Rivers had a life like no other.  At age 54, she was a superstar comedienne…and then it all fell apart.  The Comeback Girl is the awe-inspiring untold story of how Joan Rivers persevered through near suicide and professional abyss to rebuild herself and her career to become a global icon.”  So, they’ll focus on her firing from The Late Show on FOX, her husband Edgar’s suicide, and her “comeback”.

Drama at The View

Four co-hosts go in, two come out.  Am I the only one who thinks The View is turning into Thunderdome?  The live show began last Friday with Joy, Sara, Sunny and Ana (Whoopi was already felled with sciatica).  When the second segment started, Joy Behar’s introduction of Kamala Harris was aborted by producers instructing Hostin and Navarro to leave the table “for a second…we’re going to bring you back later”.  Joy tried to continue, but was instructed to throw to commercial.  After the break, Joy revealed that both Sunny and Ana tested positive for Covid and left the studio.  While the staff scrambled, Joy and Sara took questions from the audience.  After two such segments, it was announced that Kamala – who was still in the building – would not sit with the co-hosts.  Instead, in an abundance of caution, she’d talk to them for 10 minutes from a remote studio in the same building.  This begged the question – couldn’t Sunny and Ana, who were critical of the treatment of the Haitian refugees, participate via the same setup?  Adding to the murkiness, subsequent tests on Sunny and Ana were negative.

Bene-Dick Cumberbatch

Since I’m overseas, I decided to pick an Ask Billy from this side of the pond.  Harold in Manchester writes, “I heard that Benedict Cumberbatch is going full frontal in his next movie.  Any details?”

Plenty.  The film in question is Power of the Dog, which is a Western about a warring family on a Montana ranch – in other words, it’s a film I wouldn’t be caught dead seeing.  So how do they get Billy Masters’ interest?  Well, Cumberbatch is playing a gay rancher.  Yawn.  How’s about having him show the full Bene-Dick?  OK, my interest is duly piqued.  Although the film won’t be released until December, one of those lovely people who like to leak me links sent me the floppy footage.  And, naturally, I’m happy to share it with you on BillyMasters.com.

Republicans Honor Gays

Would you believe that a member of the Trump family is about to be honored by a gay organization?  Melania Trump will get the “Spirit of Lincoln” award from the Log Cabin Republicans.  And here I thought that award could only be given to two men who shared a twin bed!  The presentation will take place at Mar-a-Lago on November 6th – and we’re told she will be at the ceremony as the guest of honor (a term I use loosely).  Am I the only one thinking the group singled her out solely to get a discount on the venue?

Melania’s not the only unlikely person getting a gay award.  Remember Aaron Schock?  He of the hot body and numerous nude photos and videos you can find on BillyMasters.com?  Last week, he was honored at a pride event in Nashville, Tennessee.  Not surprisingly, this celebration was also hosted by the Log Cabin Republicans.  If anyone epitomizes the “Spirit of Lincoln”, it’s Schock!  Who knew those conservative gays had so many parties?

Gays at the Emmys

Since I’m globetrotting, attending the Emmy Awards was an impossibility.  And due to the difference in time zones, I can’t even tell you what happened because I won’t find out until after this column is published.  Instead, let me tell you about the Creative Arts Emmys.  The Emmys’ poor stepsister took place a week before the real event, and it was a gala affair – make that a GAYla affair.  RuPaul won his sixth consecutive Emmy as host of a reality or competition show.  He also made a bit of history – he’s tied for the most Emmy wins by any person of color.  Given that he may have won another award by the time you read this, he may be Emmys’ most decorated person of color – and I can’t think of a better candidate for that title.

Speaking of decorating, Queer Eye also came out on top at the Emmys.  For the fourth year in a row, the show won Outstanding Structured Reality Show.  But their biggest plaudit happened a few days later.  LEGO announced they are immortalizing the show.  On October 1st, LEGO will release Queer Eye – The Fab Five Loft.  They even went out of their way to include Bruley, the quintet’s dearly departed canine companion.

 

European Adventures

Let me share two things I’ve learned while travelling through Eastern Europe: A) You can tell who the tourists are, because they’re the only ones wearing masks, and 2) The local men are the hottest anywhere in the world.  Being a Bostonian, I’ve always been partial to all-American college boys.  But you can keep Hank, Charlie and Steve – I’m totally into Vaclav, Zoltan, and Lazlo.  Sure, none of them can speak a lick of English, but they’ll lick just about anything for a ruble!  With the current exchange rates, I can be a human Tootsie Pop for hours!

I’m not the only one in Europe.  Gus Kenworthy has been frolicking in the Greek Isles.  He was spotted diving off the cliffs of Milos – reminiscent of Peter Gallagher in Summer Lovers (except Peter had the balls to show his balls).  Gus then segued over to Sifnos, where he was spotted with an unknown male companion.  Kenworthy captioned a photo saying, “Alexa, play ‘Summer Lovin’ from the musical Greece!”.  Oh, he’s a clever boy.

 

Nude Gossip Guys

Our Ask Billy question comes from Aaron in Dallas, who writes, “What do you know about Evan Mock on Gossip Girl?  I think he’s a model-turned-actor, and seems pretty convincing in his scenes with Max.”

I haven’t watched a single episode of Gossip Girl – the reboot or the original.  But after seeing Evan Mock and Thomas Doherty, I’m a believer.  I know you asked about Evan…but Thomas is swoonable.  He was also named “one of the 50 fittest boys in the world” by Vogue when he was 22 (he’s now 26).  So that explains all the nudity…and the abs.  Back to Evan.  Mock is a model, actor, and skateboarder.  His big break was after Frank Ocean posted a video of him skateboarding – which answers some questions, and leaves us with others.  Two of his best friends are Justin Bieber and Travis Scott.  In spite of all that, Mock identifies as heterosexual.  But happily he shows a good amount of skin on Gossip Girl – and on BillyMasters.com.

More Catholic Scandals

About a month ago, the media reported about a new Catholic Church scandal when a large number of priests were discovered on Grindr.  That would be bad enough, but the investigation was prompted by news that at least 16 different mobile devices were logging into the gay hook-up app from “non-public areas of the Vatican City” – which means housing and the rectory (I will refrain from my usual rectory joke).  We hear that a new list of priests found on the app is about to go public.

Earlier this summer, Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill resigned.  Burrill was the administrator for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.  In addition to this prestigious position, he was seen in some other positions in various gay bathhouses and on Grindr.  And Burrill wasn’t the only resignation.  A Brazilian bishop was asked to tender his resignation to the Pope after two videos of him “pleasuring himself” during a video chat were leaked.  Bishop Tomé Ferreira da Silva confirmed that he was in the video and that it was leaked by a “close associate”.  Talk about being defrocked!

ABBA’s Back

ABBA is BACK!  You may recall we told you three years ago that the quartet went into the studio and quietly recorded two new songs which were to be used in some sort of hologram concert.  With all the delays, Benny called the group and said, “Maybe we should do a few others.”  Next thing you know, ABBA is releasing “Voyage”, a collection of 10 new tracks, their first new material in over 40 years.  It drops on November 5th.  As to that new show, it is also called ABBA Voyage.  The full quartet performed in front of over 150 cameras and video geniuses.  After doing the whole show over and over for five weeks, it was converted into a digital wonder.  And instead of calling them avatars, these are called ABBAtars.  The virtual ABBAs will be joined by a 10-piece band performing 22 of their greatest hits.  Opening night is at a specially constructed arena in London on May 27, 2022.

Dancing Queens

I thought it was a big deal that Dancing with the Stars is having JoJo Siwa compete with a female partner.  JoJo may be annoying, but the situation is still historic…until you realize that England had two women dancing together on Strictly Come Dancing last year.  I’m far more interested that the UK show will feature sexy John Whaite from The Great British Bake Off competing with a male partner this year!  Once again, advantage Brits.  Of course, we have Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby competing on DWTS.  And, yes, he’s gay.  But he has been partnered with Cheryl Burke – ‘cause they obviously want him to win.

Strictly actually had higher aspirations than a gay baker.  They had hoped to snare newly anointed Olympic gold medalist, Tom Daley.  However, between buffing his medal and knitting his cozies, he’s a little busy.  Still, he somehow found time to pen a new memoir.  Coming Up For Air will be released in October.  It is the follow-up to his previous memoir, My Story, which was released when he was 18!  Of course, since then he’s had quite a life – he got married, had a kid, and is now able to drink legally!  He’s also in talks to write a series of children’s books.  Busy, busy.

Back to Dancing with the Stars – I’m curious how long Olivia Jade will last.  You remember her – the daughter of Lori Loughlin who was at the center of the Varsity Blues scandal.  Apparently she no longer uses the Giannulli name – for obvious reasons.  Maybe I’m in the minority, but I’m happy to see her on DWTS – if only to watch her fall with a thud, or get cheered on by her friends on the USC crew team.  And I’m also looking forward to watching Brian Austin Green, who always seems sexy and dangerous.  Yes, even I can’t believe it – calling David from 90210 sexy and dangerous!

 

Another Nude Disney Star

Our Ask Billy question comes from Anthony in Texas: “Have you heard the rumors about Peyton Meyer accidentally posting a sex video on TikTok?  Can you track it down?”

What I find amusing is that whenever sex videos or nude photos leak, they’re often of former Disney kids.  Things that make you go, “Hmm”.  I don’t know Peyton Meyer, but he falls into that category.  He is best known for the Disney series, Girl Meets World and Dog with a Blog – both of which sound positively dreadful.  He can also currently be seen in the Netflix film He’s All That, and I can confirm that Peyton is all that…and then some.  Here’s what happened – somehow a video of Peyton having vigorous sex with his girlfriend popped up in a TikTok chat room.  But the video was not new to moi – it surfaced back in May, which is when I got it.  I’m glad I was asked to look into this story because my sources delivered two other videos of Meyer – one with another girl, and one with him taking his sizeable matters into his own hand.  All can be found on BillyMasters.com.

Last Ptown of the Season

Colton Underwood has a boyfriend.  Of course he does.  He only came out a year ago, but he has a boyfriend and a TV series.  How nice for him.  Not that I wish him ill – I truly hope he finds happiness.  As to that new beau, they were first spotted together when Colton made that pre-season trip to Provincetown with Gus Kenworthy.  Another person in that group was Jordan C. Brown, who is described in most outlets as a “well-connected political fundraiser”.  So, he has money.  I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.  The twosome was spotted at the Four Seasons resort in Maui, and one onlooker said, “They were all over each other”.  The photos we have capture a rather chaste kiss, but we’ll post it anyway on BillyMasters.com.

colorbar1

Didya know that The White Lotus was filmed at the Four Seasons in Maui?  A couple of weeks ago, sexy Murray Bartlett was spotted in Provincetown.  I’ve made a few day trips to Ptown for a variety of reasons, and last week wrapped up my summer by seeing the sensational Marilyn Maye at the Provincetown Art House (her 11th season in Ptown).  To say a 93-year-old woman is as good a singer as colleagues decades younger would be preposterous.  And yet…that is the case with Miss Maye, who seems to have found the elusive Fountain of Youth.  With her skill, intelligence and talent, she presents a show which focuses on her extraordinary strengths.  Her ability to connect with a lyric and make it personal for everyone in the audience is a gift few have.  Add in her powerful instrument and the joy she has in sharing it with us, and you have a winning combination.  She was more than ably supported by a combo led by the brilliant Billy Stritch.  Some footage can be found on BillyMasters.com.

The Ole Daytime Shuffle

Any day now, The View will return to the air.  And in the Meghan McCain seat, we will have a number of rotating co-hosts.  People like Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, S.E. Cupp, and Carly Fiorina will keep that seat warm.  As to a permanent replacement, the producers say they are “taking a little time” before deciding who will join The View.  In the meantime, expect to see some familiar faces.  Since this is the show’s 25th anniversary (which also means I moved to LA 25 years ago), they’ve invited former co-hosts to come and play.

For the love of God, will someone please cancel The Talk.  I haven’t seen something sink this slowly since the Andrea Doria!  Last week, Elaine Welteroth announced she will not return for a second season.  Good!  Elaine has the dubious distinction of solely being on the show to help Sheryl Underwood sandbag Sharon Osbourne – and then admit she was manipulated!  To fill her seat is Akbar Gbajabiamila – someone I’ve never heard of, and I do hope I don’t like or I’d have to type that name again!  I don’t plan to like him, because I don’t plan to watch.

Casting Trans Actors

Have you heard the latest from Sir Cameron Mackintosh?  When asked about casting trans actors, the theatrical producer said this: “You can’t implant something that is not inherently there in the story or character, that’s what I think.  Just to do that, that becomes gimmick casting.”  This caused lots of chatter – with the loudest voice, happily, someone who it directly affected.  Alexandra Billings said, “I am an actor.  I am Mame and I am Madame Rose.  I am Miss Hannigan and I am Annie Oakley and I am Fantine.  But I am these stories because I am part of the human fabric and no one has the right to take any of this away from me…I am an actor, Mr. Mackintosh, not a gimmick.”

Sir Cameron responded: “I was recently asked by a journalist if I would consider making the character of Mary Poppins (not the actor playing the role) a transgender woman.  Unfortunately, my answer has been misinterpreted to suggest that I am opposed to casting a transgender performer to play the role.  This is absolutely not true.  I meant only that I would not as a producer disregard the author P.L. Travers’ original intention for the character.  To be clear, whether a person is trans has no bearing on their suitability for any role in any of my shows, including Mary Poppins, as long as they can perform the role as written.”  Bravo!

Elton, Ed, Neil and Ryan

Elton John can buy anything – and probably anybody.  So what do you get him for his birthday?  This was the quandary Ed Sheeran had, until inspiration struck.  Sir Elton revealed, “For my birthday this year, he gave me a giant marble penis.  I don’t know if that’s because I’ve always been a prick or what, it’s really big, it’s beautifully made.”  But the question remains – is this his first giant marble penis?  And where is he displaying it?  The loo?  Inquiring minds…

colorbar1

Our Ask Billy question comes from Tom in Palm Springs: “Today there was a picture of NPH [Neil Patrick Harris] that showed him on vacation in Croatia wearing only swim trunks.  I noted a prominently discernable penile shaft and head.  Check it out.”

First off, Neil captioned the photo as, “165 pounds soaking wet” – so I hate him for that.  As for his penis, yes, I see what appears to be an inch or so of shaft and the outline of a head.  As a point of reference, note his hand is also in the shot, and his thumb is larger.  Of course, we saw all of Neil in Gone Girl – but, as I always say, never judge a penis flaccid (adding water doesn’t help).  Should you be interested, you can see it on BillyMasters.com.

colorbar1

When Elton’s marble penis weighs more than Neil Patrick Harris soaking wet, it’s time to end yet another column.  Speaking of being all wet, Ryan Phillippe posted some photos from a New Mexico pond with his son Deacon – often referred to as his “look-alike son”.  And he really is.  So if you want to see a wet, shirtless Ryan then and now, head on www.BillyMasters.com – the site that is multigenerational.  If you have questions of a less familial nature, send them along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Sir Elton holds his next birthday party at Naked Boys Singing: Las Vegas!.  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.

New Naked Boys Singing

Faithful readers were probably as perplexed as I was when reporting the casting of Aaron Carter in the Las Vegas company of Naked Boys Singing!.  I was skeptical that the venture would get far, but I didn’t expect him to pull out so abruptly – I hate when men do that!  “We are disappointed and a bit embarrassed to announce that Aaron Carter will not be appearing in the Las Vegas production of Naked Boys Singing!.  Within a few days of the announcement, it became clear, for multiple reasons, that Aaron’s participation…was not going to work out.  We requested his letter of resignation and received it on Monday,” say the producers.  I thought only people like the President of the United States asked for letters of resignation.  Onto the good news – strike that, GREAT news.  A number of stunning talented guys are in the cast: David Hernandez from American Idol, Matthew Ludwinski from Going Down in LA-LA Land, Chris Salvatore from Eating Out, Marcus Terrell from America’s Got Talent, and Vegas headliner Louis D’Aprile.  The 11-week residency begins on September 15th.  Details at NakedBoysSingingVegas.com.  BTW, you can check out every inch of Ludwinski and Salvatore on our website.
