"If you're an enemy of drag, you're an enemy of mine."
George Lopez criticizes Ron DeSantis' "War on Drag Queens."
There are some stories I try to stay away from, and that includes George Santosif I may call him that. But we've also seen a video where he introduces himself as Anthony Devolder. So, who really knows? He's previously claimed to be Jewish, only to clarify he meant that he's "Jew-ish."
That's just the tip of the icebergvirtually everything about him is in question. George has justified these questions with a curious statement: "A lot of people overstate on their resumes. I'm not saying I'm not guilty of that." He is, however, guilty of trying to dance around the subject with a double negativeand, for the record, I hate that!
One thing that doesn't seem to be in question is that he is gay. Well, now he is. He was married to a woman in 2012. They got divorced in 2019. "I'm very much gay. I'm OK with my sexuality. People change. I'm one of those people who change."
But is he one of those people who changes into female clothing? A grainy photo and an old Wikipedia post say he worked as a drag performer in Brazil (his parents were Brazilian immigrants). Of course, Wikipedia also says I'm still wearing size 30 jeans! While Santos hasn't defended most allegations, he felt compelled to comment on this one. "The most recent obsession from the media claiming that I am a drag Queen or 'performed' as a drag Queen is categorically false." Then someone leaked a video. Could it be? Yes, it could. You can check it out on BillyMasters.com, where you'll see George is quite...well, the polite term is "buxom."
Everyone's been wondering when we'll start the new season of "Billy Masters LIVE." You've been clamoringit's been a quiet, almost silent clamor, but I've heard you. And I'm happy to say season four will kick off on Wednesday, Jan. 25in primetime! At 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST, I'll be sitting down with singer, model and gay icon Paul Lekakis.
You'd think I'd have already had Paul as a guest, but I haven't. I asked him to be on our first season, but he declinedhe didn't have anything to promote and was living a relatively private life. Now he's got a new single"Rainbow"and he's open to talking. You can tune in live or anytime thereafter on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV, or on BillyMasters.com/TV.
Another gay star had a bad interview experienceand happily, it wasn't with me. Danny Pintauro from "Who's The Boss?" recalled an appearance on "The View" back in 2015. He was there to talk about his HIV status and to educate people on the dangers of AIDS and crystal meth.
Only two co-hosts interviewed himfellow former child stars Candace Cameron Bure and Raven-Symoné. He recently discussed that interview and took issue with Bure. "She basically said, 'Do you take responsibility for getting HIV because you were living a promiscuous lifestyle?' And turned on the spot to my husband and said, 'Do you have unprotected sex with your husband?'"
Since I'm a stickler for accuracy, I reviewed the footage, and that's not exactly how it happened. Before Bure asked her question, Danny had already gone into great detail about his promiscuity, pushing his sexual limits, and how crystal meth fueled this. His wake-up call was finding out he was HIV-positive while working as a manager at P.F. Chang'soh, the humanity!
In that light, Bure's follow-up seems natural. As to the question to Pintauro's husband about unprotected sex, that was actually asked by Raven-Symoné. She prefaced the question by saying (twice), "Please tell me if this is too personal." And the question was this: "You guys have been together for three and a half years. Do you guys have protected or unprotected sex?" Although the camera panned to Pintauro's husband, Danny jumped in to answeras you'll see on BillyMasters.com .
Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Tom in Studio City, who writes, "A friend of mine saw a video of a very young Colin Farrell modeling a thong. Where did that come from? Do you have it?"
Picture it. Dublin. 1994. An 18-year-old lanky lad with the complexion not unlike that of a young Cate Blanchett is hired to model intimate wear on a midday chat show, "12-2-1." The hosts, Marty Whelan and Ciana Campbell, handle the introductions. "First on we have Colin, who's wearing very little." Out strolls the future superstar in a red thong and satin robewhich is quickly doffed. He walks, he cocks his hip, and he pivots in a manner familiar to so many models. One guest says, "It's like a jock strap." Trust me when I say it is nothing like a jock strapas you will see on BillyMasters.com .
When we're presenting Farrell in any clothing, we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. I say that because we were once threatened with legal action by Colin. Oh, yes, it's true. This was back when his sex tape leaked. Well, not so much leaked as exploded on www.BillyMasters.comthe site that is definitely a shower. Colin and I resolved the matter satisfactorily in ways I'm not at liberty to discuss publicly. But you can write to me at Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before I satisfy an elected official (again). So, until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
