"I didn't watch the documentary, but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in. … I cried for two weeks and well … I still cry sometimes!!!!"—Britney Spears addresses the documentary Framing Britney Spears. It's kinda like throwing a life preserver to someone in the ocean. You can't make them take it.

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 it 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.

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. While 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!

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 8, 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.

It was just announced that Michael Urie will star in a holiday flick for Netflix entitled Single All the Way—which has no connection to the 2018 Hallmark Channel holiday classic Mingle All The Way, which starred my beloved Lindsay Wagner and the hunky Brant Daugherty. Urie's project will be helmed by Tony-winning director Michael Mayer, and will also star my pal Jennifer Coolidge. Urie's love interest will be played by Luke Macfarlane. The film is aiming for release this December.

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Jared in Rhode Island: "I'm totally in love with Franek Skywalker. He's so freaking hawt, and has a great ass and 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. Under his real name, Marcin Turski, 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/Marcin 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 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.
