Billy Masters: Connor shocks by holding hands with a girl, and other dish to start the week

"Beverly Hills is riveting. It is riveting for many reasons. All the gays that I have are obsessed with it, so I would go on that one. Lisa Rinna is such a good villain. So I like that one."—Jennifer Coolidge answers the question of which of the Real Housewives cities she would be inclined to join.

The big story of the week was about Kit Connor, who plays a rugby player who is in a relationship with another boy on Heartstopper on Netflix. Back in May, he got fed up with social media comments and Tweeted, "Some people on here know my sexuality better than I do." He went radio silent until last week, when he made the following proclamation: "back for a minute. i'm bi. congrats for forcing an 18 year old to out himself. i think some of you missed the point of the show. bye."

My first question—forced? Don't look at me—I haven't forced an 18-year-old boy to do anything since I was 16! It appears that the online comments got really nasty after Kit was photographed holding hands with his female co-star from the film A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow. People were outraged that he might be straight. Oh, the horror! Look, people—where do you think gay babies come from? Straight parents. If Kit can help populate the world with hot young boys, I'm all for it! Frankly, I think the culprits are all the folks insisting that gays play gays, and straights play straights. If someone holding hands with a girl is gonna trigger you—you have serious problems.

The son of country legend Hank Williams Jr. recently came out in a big way. In the music video for his song "Tilted Crown," Sam Williams is seen making out with a man. And not just any man—his real-life boyfriend! While it wasn't what Sam envisioned for the video, the director suggested it and Williams agreed. "I felt like I was promoting invisibility, like I wasn't being visible and wasn't being myself. And I just thought it was the perfect opportunity to just show who I was."

During an interview with Apple Music's Proud Radio, Sam was asked how he identifies (a term that makes me cringe just a bit). "I identify as gay, and I've never said that to anybody else. I mean, people at my label know and people in my personal life know, but this is the first time that I've ever been, besides a show or two, that I've ever been this public about it. And it is scary, but it feels good."

The hunky Welsh actor Luke Evans is working all the time. Being openly gay, he was asked about the roles he's played. "Gay people have definitely missed out on gay roles, for sure...but from my perspective, firstly, I wouldn't have had a career if gay people played gay roles and straight people played straight roles. I'd have played two roles out of the 36 projects I've worked on, or whatever the number is."

To back up his claims, it should be noted that Luke is one of a handful of people being considered to be the next James Bond. "Being gay hasn't had any impact on any of the roles I've played, my slate is so diverse, so varied in such a brilliant way. I've played everything and no one seems to have a problem with that." If you wanna see another side of Luke (more than the multiple angles visible on BillyMasters.com), check out his latest project. He's just released a collection of cover songs called A Song for You, which includes duets with Christina Aguilera and Nicole Kidman!

My favorite story of the week comes from the Miss Grand International competition—one of the few beauty pageants I've never watched (but I am available to judge or host, should they be looking for someone). During the 2020 competition, Miss Argentina and Miss Puerto Rico met...and fell in love! They kept it private and never made any public mention of being in a relationship...until they got married! Then they posted a video documenting their courtship: from first date, to proposal, to a civil ceremony at the Marriage Bureau in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Oct. 28. "After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors to them on a special day."

On the flip side, our "Ask Billy" question comes from Frank in Atlanta: "Was that Theo James' real dick in The White Lotus? He must have been fluffed. Real or not, he is SO hawt!!"

I'm going with real—but that may be wishful thinking. We last saw every inch of Theo in The Time Traveler's Wife. He revealed a bit about his Lotus nudity this summer: "The initial version we shot was way too much. So, we did a more subtle version." I guess instead of using a camera angle that lingered on his naughty bits, we'll have to suffice with a bit of bouncing in the mirror. But, fret not—we're told there's more where that came from in episode 5. Until then, you can get a gander of him from both shows on BillyMasters.com .

When we're discussing the sex life of someone named Kit who wasn't on "Game of Thrones", we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. For more dish, check out www.BillyMasters.com—the site where you can see many guys with their kits off (that's for my fans across the pond). For your other needs, drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Theo James drops trou...again. So, until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
