"Harry Styles is looking REALLY good. I'm into the fishnets. And we have very similar tastes. I think sharing a closet, sharing a life together, it just makes sense."Miley Cyrus. I'd rather see Harry with Miley's ex, Cody Simpson, but that's me. Either way, it's gonna be a pretty packed closet. But, to paraphrase Joan Rivers, at least they'll double their wardrobe.
Who would you die for? It may say something horrid about me, but not a single person springs to mind. People often say they'd die for their childthat's their problem. But would you get on a plane, during a pandemic, and purposely and premeditatively lay down your life for anyone in public office? Because there are people who follow El Presidente and are happily willing to die for himno Kool-Aid required. I don't get it, I don't understand it, but there it is. It's as clear as that touring company of Les Miserables that was playing in DC last week!
Speaking of dying, Tanya Roberts has, indeed, died. After I sent out my last column, a friend chastised me for not mentioning the death of the last lady to join TV's Charlie's Angelsto say nothing of Sheena (of the jungle, not of Easton). The next morning, I woke up to find her alive! As I said to Loni Anderson on "Billy Masters LIVE" last season: I read about that once before in a book … and I didn't buy it then! Being a cynic, I thought it was a publicity stunt. Tanya's dead; then she's alive; then she writes a book; then she's on The View. No such luck. Rest in peace, Tanya.
It didn't take Meghan McCain long to stir things up on The View. She does two things I can't stand: 1) She repeats the same point three times in a single sentence without pausing for a breath; and B) She gets mad when people interrupt herwhich she does incessantly. On Meghan's second day, she interrupted Joywho stood her ground and said, "Excuse me, I'm not done." McCain teased that Joy missed her when she was on maternity leave, to which Joy said, "I did not! I did not miss you! ZERO!" Make no mistakethe queen of interrupting is Joy Behar. When doing a virtual talk show, you must wait for someone to stop speaking before you startor nobody hears anything. Behar has something to say after virtually every person speaks. What they should do is turn off people's mikes until it is their time to talk. That tip was freeno charge, ABC.
Aaron Schock spent his New Year's Eve partying in Brazilwhich sounds delightful. While the specifics of the soiree are unknown, photos reveal the revelers as hot guys not wearing masks (or much clothing). I am tickled by some who criticize him, specifically "Gays Over COVID"which sounds like the worst Disney ride EVER! "He has no apparent source of income but lord he is obsessed with his abs," said one person. Jealous much? P.S.: They are good abs, as you'll see on BillyMasters.com .
While reports suggest that our lives may resume in the spring, the fallout on Broadway will be ongoing. The hit musical Mean Girls will not be resuming performances, and that's not the only one. The musical version of Beetlejuice was playing at the Winter Garden Theatre. Over the holidays, that set was struck and a stagehand plummeted to his death. The next tenant will be The Music Man, starring Hugh Jackmanno body count thus far. Rumor has it Beetlejuice could be relocated.
Paramount has announced plans for a film version of Spamalot, which was based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Eric Idle, who wrote the previous two, will write this third incarnation. Not to be outdone, the musical version of The Color Purple, based on the movie of the same name (to say nothing of the book), will be filmed as well.
Joan Collins is poised to publish yet another memoir. Life AD stands for "Life After Dynasty"although I anticipate many more "AD" jokes. Her publisher said "the 87-year-old actress's diary entries are unapologetic," and added that she "doesn't care." I bet she cares that they're revealing she's 87. They also claim that Dame Joan's diaries are "as scandalous as Andy Warhol's." In a recent interview, Collins described this pandemic as the worst thing she's ever lived throughincluding the bubonic plague (and there's your first "AD" joke).
Our "Ask Billy" question harkens back to the riots in DC. Roger in Detroit asks, "Who is Phil Mattingly? I saw him covering the riots for CNN and, gosh, he's handsome."
He is, indeed. He's bordering on dashing. Let me first answer your unwritten questionhe's straight. Well, presumably he's straight. The strapping 36-year-old newsman has been married to a woman since 2010, and they have three kids. He is, however, very gay-friendly and has supported many gay causes via Twitter. He's also shared his workout regime with "Men's Health"which is typically a precursor to a coming out story, but perhaps he's the exception. He reveals that when he doesn't stick to the gym, it takes a terrible toll on him: He loses weight! And he thinks being a morning person is why people hate him.
When there's one more angel in heaven and another one on CNN, it's time to end yet another column. No new nudes in this column (other than Schock), but you never know what will pop up on BillyMasters.comthe site that's a little devilish. If you have a question, send it off to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Tanya rises … again! So, until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
