Billy Masters: Candace Cameron Bure keeps it in the family, and all the Thanksgiving dish you need to start the week

"I will be dating Pete Davidson next."

—Dionne Warwick tweets she'll be the next woman in Davidson's long list of ex-paramours. Davidson's former SNL co-star Jay Pharoah says Pete told him the secret of his success. "Bro, it's like nine inches." I don't know what's more shocking—the alleged size, or that we finally found someone who uses the term "bro"!

You all know that Candace Cameron Bure left the Hallmark Channel when the network became more "diverse" and "inclusive"—and we all know what that means. She joined forces with the Great American Family network, which will focus on "traditional families"—and we all know what that means. Lest there be any doubt, Bure was asked specifically if the new network would include any same-sex couples. "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core," said Candi. And that ruffled lots of feathers. First to comment was JoJo Siwa, who previously said Candace was the rudest celebrity she ever met—clearly she's never met Faye Dunaway! JoJo now calls Candace "rude and hurtful to a whole community of people." The nail in the coffin was hammered in by Bure's "Full House" sister, Jodie Sweetin. She responded to JoJo's post, "You know I love you." So there.

Here's the part that may surprise you—I have no problem with Candace's network. I won't watch it. But if the gays can have a network and everyone else can have a network, then there's a place for "traditional families." I don't like that they call it "Great American Family," but that's my problem. Good luck to her. My feelings are best summed up by Hilarie Burton—even though I'm not entirely sure who she is: "I don't remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank."

So let's talk about families. They come in all shapes, sizes, and guises. We'll start by telling you that Rebel Wilson just had a daughter via surrogate. Not to be outdone, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his hubby Justin Mikita welcomed a second child to their family, also via surrogate. And then there's "Queer Eye" star Antoni Porowski, who recently announced his engagement to Kevin Harrington. Congrats to all.

Sexy Luke Evans announced that he's interested in starting a family. "I'd like to slow down. I want to get a dog and start a family, and you can't do that if you're on the road 10 months a year." If Luke is interested in starting a family, he's got my number (don't ask). And, as it happens, I'm more than willing to try it doggie style.

As you all know, diver Tom Daley has become a devotee of knitting—who would have thought he'd have more in common with Nana Masters than moi! And, like Nana, he's always knitting things for his loved ones. "I love making stuff for my son Robbie," gushed Tom. Alas, his efforts aren't completely appreciated. "It has gotten to a point where I sometimes get the needles out and he's like, 'Papa, no more knitting.'" Out of the mouth of babes...

Speaking of divers, Greg Louganis is someone I'm always thankful for. As a kid, he was an idol. As a diver in high school, he was an inspiration (and a coach). And as a gay man, he's been an example. His life—like his dives—has had numerous twists and turns, highs and lows. But he always endures. Greg is auctioning off a number of his prized possessions—including two of his four Olympic gold medals. Where are the other two? Where is he donating some of the proceeds? And why is he selling off things in the first place? You could find out some of that stuff on GregLouganis.com . But even more will be revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 22, when Gregory joins me on "Billy Masters LIVE" at 4 p.m. EST/ 1 p.m. PST. Tune in on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV, or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

We have time for a very brief "Ask Billy" question. Calvin in Detroit writes, "What do you know about the Pritchard twins? I was in London and saw one of them on a reality show—and then found some hot pics of them on the web. What's their story?"

First off, they aren't twins—but they are brothers. AJ is the elder, while Curtis is two years younger. You probably saw AJ on "SAS: Who Dares Wins", a British reality show set in the Jordanian desert which emulates basic training for UK special forces (kinda like our SEAL team). Both of them are dancer/choreographers. AJ appeared on "Britain's Got Talent", and was a pro on "Strictly Come Dancing" (their version of "Dancing with the Stars"), while Curtis appeared on "DWTS" in Ireland and on the UK dating show "Love Island." And they were both guest choreographers on "RuPaul's Drag Race UK." Given their physiques, they're not shy about showing some skin in photo sessions—both separately and together. You'll see what I mean on BillyMasters.com .

When we're keeping the nudity all in the family, we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. Talk about your family values! Of course, the best value on the web is at www.BillyMasters.com—the site that always delivers a healthy assortment of meats. If you'd like to get to know me in the Biblical sense, dash a note off to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to fulfill your request before you get your bird stuffed. So, until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
