"I was so young. It made me go back in the closet because I was so overwhelmed at 26 or 27. I didn't want the responsibility, I didn't know how to handle the responsibility of speaking for the gay community. I always felt like I owed them a huge apology for coming out too late."Sean Hayes discusses how the success of Will & Grace made him more private about his personal life. I can't speak for the entire gay community, but giving Linda Lavin more to do in Sean Saves The World will make us forgive almost anything.
I recently read an article with a provocative headline: "Does It Matter That Ronan Farrow Is Gay?" I guess it would matter if you were sleeping with him. And I suppose it might matter to Frank Sinatra if he were alive. But does it matter to anyone else? I posed the question to a number of people, who overwhelmingly responded, "Who is Ronan Farrow?" Well, he is newsworthy since he'll soon be hosting a show on MSNBC ( which I am sure begs the question, "What is MSNBC?" ).
After the recent Vanity Fair feature on his lookalike mom, Mia Farrow, a bit of public attention was expected. In a New York Times profile, his personal life was dispatched with a cryptic statement that Ronan makes the rounds socially, "often appearing at political fetes with Jon Lovett, a former Obama speechwriter." Next thing you know, he'll be referred to as a confirmed bachelor, and Lovett his longtime companion. What is unclear is if this shroud of secrecy was an edict from Ronan's camp. Frankly, I don't care if he's gay or if he comes out. But I must remember, if ever I do meet him, not to call him Satchel.
At roughly the same time, a number of stories on Gawker targeted Fox News anchor Shepard Smith. First was an account about his boorish behavior to a bar waitress seven months earlier; he allegedly screamed, "Get my fucking drink" and jostled her elbow. Buried in that story was the waitress' casual mention that Smith was with a muscular 6-foot-2, thirtysomething white male who several bar employees identified as his boyfriend. ( The pair had reportedly been seen holding hands under the table. ).Days later, Gawker got more specificabout a year ago, Smith began dating a 26-year-old male production assistant from Fox News, who is now an associate producer at Fox Business Networka move said to have been facilitated by Smith to avoid the appearance of impropriety. The aforementioned waitress and other co-workers confirmed this by saying, "Yes, that's Shepard's boyfriend."
This led to a New York Times article called "Gawker Kicks Open the Closet, but Its Disclosure Barely Reverberates." The gist was that while Gawker may have hoped that a Fox News anchor being gay would cause some hubbub, no one cared. Even the revelation that he's dating an underling half his age generated little interest. Then Michelangelo Signorile wrote an article for the Huffington Post called "Why It's Wrong to Say It's Wrong to Say Shepard Smith Is Gay." I love Mikey and I get what he's sayingthat when the press omits saying someone is gay, they're perpetuating the belief that being gay is something to hide. And I think that's a valid point in a story about someone's sex life. But tossed into a report about a waitress in a bar does seem slightly gratuitous and rather suspect. I hasten to add that I'd say the same thing if this were a story about a heterosexual man. If someone wrote that a straight male comedian was acting like a dick to his waitress while drinking with a gal who charges by the hour, I'd cry foul. Being out with a hooker has nothing to do with the story. Plus, who am I to disparage dating hookers? So, while I won't name Shep's alleged beau, I'll share photos of him on BillyMasters.com .
More than Shepard Smith, more than Satchel Ronan Farrow O'Sullivan Allen Previn Sinatra, my favorite story of the week was that attendees of the G20 Summit received bugged gift bags. Who knew they gave out gift bags at a summit? The bags included flash drives and cell phone chargers that would allegedly transmit data to a third party. What is the world coming to? At this rate, when I get a gift bag at the People's Choice Awards, I'm now gonna worry that my phone calls are being listened to by Kaley Cuoco.
Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Nathan in Florida who writes: "What can you tell me about Blake McIvar Ewing from The Little Rascals movie and the last season of Full House? I heard he's gorgeous and gay."
The precocious child actor ( who has dropped Ewing from his professional name ) is now a very handsome 28-year-old man who is indeed gaysomething I suspected after he turned up on the first season of The Nanny tap-dancing while singing "Put On A Happy Face." In fact, Blake started out as a singer and got his big break on Star Search, where he won the junior singer category. Since his time as a child star, he's been rather successful as a voiceover actor for various animated projects. He recently turned up on Bravo's short-lived The People's Couch alongside his pals Emerson Collins and Scott Nevins. But my readers will likely be interested in his other careeras a go-go dancer! When asked about this new venture, he said, "I had so much shame about my body. This was a way to express myself that was safe, sensual, and fun. I'm not hiding who I am anymorenot pretending to be something I'm not." He's also barely hiding his candy, as you'll see in the mega-hot photos on BillyMasters.com .
Since I didn't exactly give you any full-frontal nudity, I'll make up for it with a brief response to a reader who is a fan of YouTube sensation Davey Wavey. I've met Mr. Wavey and can attest that he's as charming and charismatic in person as he is on screen. But my fan was curious about Davey's derriere and dick. Although he shows lots of skin in his videos ( and on DaveyWavey.tv ), I was fairly confident that Wavey has never shown all. How wrong I was. In fact, I came across a fistful of photos showing every inch of him. Of his ass, I expected something to behold. But upon seeing the rest of him, I'd rather be-holding his penis. Check him out on BillyMasters.com .
When Blake can still get us to put on a happy face, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Because of our last item, we ran long ( in more ways than one ). So let me wrap up by reminding you to check out www.BillyMasters.com, the site that never scrimps on size. If you've got a question for me, do send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Shepard Smith hooks up with Ronan Farrow! Until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
