"There was talk of Harry Styles, but I think he ran. He was too scared."Boy George discusses who will play him in a biopicor, rather, who won't. The frontrunner currently is Yungbluda young British singer. If you are anxious to see Styles on the big screen, check out Marvel's Eternals on Nov. 5.
Certain jobs in showbiz are hazardous to your health. I know you're expecting an inappropriate joke from me, but I'm not going therealthough I did chuckle when someone on Facebook marked himself as safe from Alec Baldwin. Many have wondered if Baldwin's career will survive this tragic incident. I don't see why not. Brandy, Matthew Broderick and even Caitlyn Jenner were all in fatal car accidents, and they're all doing fine. But you probably wouldn't let any of them give you a ride home!
In terms of hazards, the show with the largest body count is probably The View. In her endless audible book Bad Republican (with five hours I'll never get back), Meghan McCain talks about the toxic work environment there and blames many people for her troubled tenuremany 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 ityou missed me, you missed fighting with me," to which Joy bluntly responded, "I did notI did not miss you. Zero." She had a similar fall-out after Whoopi Goldberg chastised 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 laughingstock of the country." It's as if Meghan likes having it both waysas 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.
Being the host of The Wendy Williams Show can also be hazardous to your healthas evidenced by Wendy's many maladies and absence from her long-delayed season debut. I was amused that People magazine reported that Sherri Shepherd would guest-host the first week of November … two days after I made that announcement. So now you know where to find the freshest dish. The new season of Wendy finally launched last week with guest host Leah Remini. I tell you this because ratings indicate very few of you watched. There are even reports that the producers had to pay people to sit in the audience!! I don't expect that Sherri will have this problem.
We all know that being on Dancing with the Stars can be hazardous to your physical health. But apparently it can also take a toll on your romantic life. We hear that JoJo Siwa has broken up with Kylie Prew. According to a source on the set, the two parted ways a few weeks agobut JoJo is focusing solely on her dancing. And before you ask, nope, there is neither hanky nor panky taking place with her dance partner, Jenna Johnson.
You know what isn't hazardous to your health? Being on "Billy Masters LIVE." We had our fall premiere last week with the Las Vegas company of Naked Boys SingingDavid Hernandez, Matthew Ludwinski, Chris Salvatore, Marcus Terell and Louis D'Aprileand none of them looked any worse for wear. They were joined by producer Tom D'Angora, and we ran the world premiere video of their opening number, "Gratuitous Nudity." This Thursday, Oct. 28, we'll have a panel that will include Mark MacKillop and Jason Dottley. You can watch all of our shows on BillyMasters.com/TV or at YouTube.com/BillyMastersTV.
Candace Bushnell said she has no involvement with the Sex and the City sequel series, And Just Like That.... She said, "They rebooted Gossip Girl. If they didn't reboot Sex and the City, it would be really strange." While Bushnell said she doesn't know what the show is about, she will tune in when it debuts on HBO Max in December.
Our "Ask Billy" question came from Robert in New Yorkand 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 Biernatwho, admittedly, has some Karimloo in him (something I wish I could say). Should you be interested, I'll post it on BillyMasters.com .
