"I will always love Pamela, always in my heart. I left her $10 million in my will. And she doesn't even know that. Nobody knows that."
Jon Peters reveals his bequest to ex-wife Pamela Anderson. Pam was only married to Jon for 12 days, and she's getting $10 million. She was married to Tommy Lee for 3 years, and all she got was Hepatitis C!
One of the most touching moments in TV history was when Barbara Walters retired from The View. On that day, Oprah Winfrey brought out over 25 newswomen who owed their careers to Barbara. Walters opened the door for women to be taken seriously in the news businessalthough she did this alongside a chimp and dressed as a Bunny (not at the same time).
One of the women who followed in Babs' footsteps was Amy Robachthe former Mrs. Andrew Shue. In time, Amy even took over Walters' office at ABC. "I want to live up to the standards that Barbara created," said Robach.
Perhaps the path blazed was both professional and personal. When hearing news about Robach's affair with co-anchor T.J. Holmes, I couldn't help but be reminded of Walters' torrid affair with Senator Edward Brooke. Admittedly, Walters didn't work with the man, nor was she co-hosting the third hour of Good Morning America, but, an open door is an open door. P.S. Both Robach and her paramour have been let go from GMA3.
By now, most of you have seen the season premiere of "Billy Masters LIVE." I was surprised to learn that we did over 120 shows during our first three seasons. I'm no math whiz, but that's a helluva lotta shows! If last week was any indication, season 4 is gonna be juicy. We kicked off our premiere with Mark MacKillopthe highest-grossing fundraiser in the history of Broadway Bares. But we focused on something more serioushis hair! Mark just returned from Istanbul (not Constantinople) where he underwent hair transplant surgery, and he was willing to talk about it...and show pictures! We also discussed the standards of beauty and how we all fall prey to this pressure, which led to a revelation from moi (watch the show). We then segued to someone I described as one of the most beautiful men to have ever roamed the EarthPaul Lekakis. Why are looks important for a singer? What path did he take in the post-Boom Boom world? Did he ever do gay porn? And what's he up to today? The answers to all those question can be found on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV, or at BillyMasters.com/TV.
So, does a singer have to be hot? Isn't having vocal talent enough? The answer to that question seems to be a resounding "no." And that leads us to Harry Styles, whom nobody ever confused with Ed Sheeran or Sam Smith. Styles has his own special brand of "je ne sais quoi." And at a recent concert in Inglewood, California, the audience got to see a whole lotta "quoi." He was in the midst of Music for a Sushi Restaurant" (feel free to hum along) when he dropped to one knee and felt a breeze where he normally wouldn't.
Oh, yes, his cheap pleather pants parted, and out fell his "quoi" for all to see. He awkwardly tried to cover his crotch [Editor's note: reportedly with a Pride flag!], and later explained to the audience what happened. "My trousers ripped. I feel I must apologize to a certain few of you right down in the front there. I mean, this is a family show...or is it?" He probably should have apologized to anyone farther back who missed the showstopper. Happily, someone caught the whole kit and caboodle on video, and you can see it on BillyMasters.com .
Our "Ask Billy" question delights me immensely. Roger in Chicago asks, "Fenmore Baldwin is gay? When did that happen? And is the actor gay? I've always had a huge crush on him."
Last week, Tracey Bregman celebrated 40 years on The Young and the Restless. To set up a retrospective, they had Zach Tinker return to the show as her son, Fenmore. And he didn't return alonehe came with a boyfriend named Trey (played by Julian Larach, who is mighty popular in our community). Fen has never previously been referred to as gay, although he had loads of chemistry modeling swimsuits with Michael Mealor (as Kyle).
But, I digress. Fenmore's father, Michael Baldwin, is brothers with Kevin Fisherwho is played by Gregg Rikaart. Kevin is straight, but Gregg is openly gay (so is...well, never mind). Rikaart occasionally appears on Days of our Lives as Leo Stark, who is gay and dating Sonny Kiriakiswho is played by (you guessed it) Zach Tinker! This means Fenmore is kinda dating his uncle. If this sounds too confusing, don't worryZach isn't planning on returning to Y&R, nor is Rikaart heading back to "Days." But I should add that in real life, Zach has been romantically linked with trans director Aitch Alberto. And they'll all show up on BillyMasters.com .
When real life is as wild as a soap, we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. It was fun seeing all those old clips on Y&R. Come to think of it, we strolled down memory lane on BML as well. We showed lots of old photos of me, Lekakis and MacKillop. Talk about hairdos...and don'ts! Don't take my word for itcheck out www.BillyMasters.com, the site that doesn't require a family tree! If you've got a question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Robach gets a job as a Playboy Bunny! Until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
