"What kind of moronic thing to say. Maybe that's projection. Maybe she's the one who's disgusting and she's projecting her hate. I LOVE all gays." - Nadya Suleman takes Paris Hilton to task for her comments about gay people. You know you're f*cked when Octomom is the voice of reason.
One of my friends stays up nights trying to think of roles that could resuscitate Cher and Barbra's film careers (apparently he doesn't think those Focker flicks rank with Yentl). Every time I made a suggestion, we both concurred that it would first be offered to Meryl. Then it hit me—what has been very successful for Streep lately? Biopics. Just think how great Streisand would be as someone like Madeleine Albright or Helen Thomas. Or what about a remake of A Woman Called Golda? As for Cher, I have three words for you—Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
While Barbra's options may be limited, her son Jason is embarking on a whole new career. Although he tried acting (appearing with mom in The Prince of Tides) and filmmaking (directing, writing, producing, and acting in the short Inside Out, which also starred his dad, Elliot Gould), what he's always wanted to do was sing. But he was a little intimidated...and understandably so! But for his mom's 70th birthday, he made a special film montage which was accompanied by him singing Nat King Cole's Nature Boy. Mom was so overwhelmed that she invited him to join her on her upcoming tour. This gave Jason the incentive to release his first EP...a collection of five songs (including Nature Boy). This comes out on Tuesday, October 9th—the same day mom's latest CD, Release Me, drops. Of course, there's no need to wait. If you want to hear Jason, just go to BillyMasters.com.
We hear that George Takei and Nicole Richie will be turning up on The New Normal playing themselves (which may be a stretch for at least one of them). There will also be a cameo by Marlo Thomas. So edgy and au courant. Next, Shields and Yarnell for sweeps!
When I heard that Nolan Gerard Funk would be appearing on Glee playing a Warbler trying to lure Blaine back to the fold, I was sure that name sounded familiar. It turns out that he starred in the TV remake of Bye, Bye, Birdie and the Nickelodeon flick Spectacular, which was a small-screen attempt to cash in on High School Musical. Since I didn't see those, I must have known him from somewhere else. Turns out that prior to these gigs, he was a hard working stripper/go-go boy in Los Angeles area gay bars. To see how good he looks in and out of his clothes, check out BillyMasters.com—where we apparently bring in da noise and da Funk.
Last week dashing newsman Thomas Roberts married Patrick Abner, his partner of 13 years. The ceremony took place at the Gansvoort Hotel in NYC and was officiated by California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. Quite a number of you dashed off e-mails asking when those photos from Thomas' Manhunt profile went public. That was in 2007. While the profile's gone, the photos live on at BillyMasters.com.
Tom and Pat's wedding provided another announcement. Sam Champion (weatherman on Good Morning America) was one of the guests and took that opportunity to announce that he too would be getting married...to a man. While none of my readers will be surprised that Champion is gay, this is a very roundabout way of coming out since he's never publicly discussed it before. He and boyfriend Rudem Robierb will be getting married in NYC with a large celebratory party for family and friends to follow in Miami.
You may have heard that Star Jones recently accused Anderson Cooper of coming out to help the ratings for his daytime talk show. The normally reticent Coop addressed this topic while gabbing with Andy Cohen on the aforementioned talk show: "I haven't thought about Star Jones in I don't know how long. I was unaware she was even on TV still, but she apparently shows up on a morning show." He didn't stop there. Oh, no—not Anderson. "I seem to recall her hocking her wedding every single day to get free products when she was on The View and I seem to recall her lying about her gastric bypass surgery and making everybody else lie about it as well. So for her to suddenly emerge out of the shadows and suddenly attack me for this, I couldn't believe it." Neither could I!
Hunky Chris Evans was recently spotted at a gay bar in West Hollywood, Eleven. Now before you say it probably wasn't him but his very sexy and similar-looking brother, forget it. Because BOTH Evans boys were there. The reason? Celebrating Scott's 29th birthday. In fact, Chris was not expected at the tres gay soirée, but surprised his brother by coming up behind him and putting his arms around him. I recently had a dream where Chris did the same thing to me, but it was in a different context ...although there were just as many people watching.
Remember when I told you that The Price Is Right was looking for their first ever male spokesmodel? Well, the contest is over and sexy Rob Wilson was the winner. While he's described in the press release as a Bostonian, the actor and model has actually been living in Los Angeles for a while. Regardless of where he's from, he's pretty damn hot—both in and out of his clothes. Before you ask, I have a feeling he's straight. Why? Although I have more than Facebook's limit of friends, Rob and I only have two people in common—and both of them are agents. It is simply inconceivable that a guy this hot living in LA doesn't have friends in common with moi. Be that as it may, I know you'll enjoy the scantily-clad pics we've uncovered of him which you can see on BillyMasters.com.
I've held onto our "Ask Billy" question for a couple of months. This summer, Kevin from Orlando asked: "What ever happened to that porn video that Chris Crocker was going to make with Chi Chi La Rue? Is he really a top?"
The young Crocker became an Internet sensation with his cry for people to Leave Britney Alone. He later resurfaced as a struggling actor and prospective gay porn star. He did indeed sign a deal with Ms. La Rue...one that did not bear fruit. However, his ambitions have found a new home at the Maverick Men website. But many of the details have changed. First, the self-proclaimed top suddenly is bottoming for at least two guys. And, oh yes, he's not using one of those pesky condoms that only help save your life. Chacun a son goût. Who am I to judge? I'll leave that to those of you who want to check out the footage on BillyMasters.com.
When Sam Champion marrying a guy is news, it's definitely time to end yet another column. You'll note I didn't write a word about this whole Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj fracas. And there are three reasons for that: 1) by the time this column comes out, I'm sure you'll be sick to death of this story; 2) I'm not entirely convinced that this whole thing hasn't been somewhat manufactured; and 3) I really don't want to piss off Minaj. Instead, I'll just say that you can get the best gossip and much, much more at www.BillyMasters.com. If you have a question for me, e-mail me at Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Babs and Jason debut their version of "No More Tears (Enough is Enough)"! So, until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
