"People said something about 'slut-shaming.' I'm like, 'Come on please, that's absurd. I love sluts.'"Zachary Quinto refutes rumors that he looks down on gay men taking PrEP to prevent HIV. He added, "I'm not trying to say that people shouldn't take PrEP, or that people shouldn't have sex, or that sex isn't amazing. It is. I'm just saying we should support each other and be responsiblewhatever that means to you."
What am I thankful for? I'm thankful that reports of Valerie Harper's imminent demise are untrue. The feisty actress has not been seen in public since collapsing backstage at the Ogunquit Playhouse in July. Rumors abounded that her precarious health had taken a turn for the worse. Happily, she made her first public appearance in over four months at the Glioblastoma Multiforme Heroes Awards in San Antonio. "I went to Maine to do a play, and I was doing fine, learning my lines," she said. "But I was having trouble repeating the lines. Finallylong story shortI collapsed, pretty much." A complication was preventing her medication from working properly. The collapse was a dramatic way to find out, but it may have saved her life. "The thing about being alive is being alive. All of us are going to die. Every single one of us. So, while you're alive, be alive." And be thankful.
One of the hottest-selling desserts this year is Patti LaBelle's Sweet Potato Pie. The 21-ounce pie is being sold for under four bucks exclusively at Walmart, but good luck finding one. Most locations are sold out and not expected to have more until the second week of December. The feeding frenzy started when a fan, James Wright, made a video of himself tasting the pie. The pie was so good, it made Wright burst out singing and testifying like he was wearing a church hat! The video went viral, was viewed by more than 3 million people and the pies sold like hotcakesif, indeed, pies can sell like hotcakes. For three days, Walmart was selling one pie every second! Some people are so nefarious, they are reselling the pies on eBay for as little as $15 and as much as $12K! While Patti's happy for the attention, she wants everyone to know that the success is not because of the videoit's because she's made a great pie. Good luck getting your hands on one.
Reid Ewing, who plays Dylan on Modern Family, just went public with a struggle of his ownhe has body dysmorphia and has been addicted to plastic surgery. He wanted to look more like Brad Pitt when he moved to LA in 2008. So he got cheek implantsbecause, apparently, that's the only thing separating us from Brad Pitt! After the surgery, pain, recovery and swelling, he felt he looked worse than before. He had cheekbones, but now the bottom of his face looked sunken. Several surgeries later, he still didn't look like Brad Pitt. "Each procedure would cause a new problem that I would have to fix with another procedure," he said. "Anyone who has had a run-in with bad cosmetic surgery knows this is true. I vowed I would never get cosmetic surgery again even though I was still deeply insecure about my looks. It took me about six months before I was comfortable with people even looking at me." He must have gotten over it in time to star in the 2013 film 10 Rules For Sleeping Around, where he not only shows all ( yes, I do mean all ), he is even mounted by a particularly amorous border collie! Maybe the dog thought he was Brad Pitt! You can decide for yourself when you check out BillyMasters.com .
Chris Colfer has been lying low since the demise of Glee. But he's looking toward the future, and at the top of his list is doing a Broadway show. Last week, he told Larry King ( remember him? ), "I might be doing one soon, hopefully. Been talking about it. It'll be very vocally demanding, so I'm terrified about it." He didn't offer any other clues, but we do know that he will be in the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous movie. How did he get the gig? Jennifer Saunders talked about it more than a year ago: "I've promised Chris Colfer he can be in it, and I've said it so often that now he has to be in it. I've promised so many people they're going to be in it and I haven't even written it yet." Once the film was written, Saunders made good on her promise. She also wrote a part for Joan Collins. Perhaps Joanie is playing one of Patsy's other sisters, since the divine Kate O'Mara is no longer with us. You can see photos from the set on BillyMasters.com .
This leads into our "Ask Billy" question perfectly. Nicholas from Rhode Island writes, "I just saw the ads for 'Lord of the Dance' on Broadway. Is that really what Michael Flatley looks like today? Isn't he like a hundred? He looks incredible."
To be accurate, the show is called "Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games." And, while I hate to dash your dreams, the guy in the photo is dancer James Keegan. The sexy 28-year-old is described as Flatley's protégéa word which, to quote Sue Ann Nivens, comes from the French, meaning "Your place or mine?" While I don't know much about Keegan except that he's really hot, we'll post some sexy snaps of him on our website. Fear not, fans of Flatley. A new Lord of the Dance doesn't mean that Mikey has hung up his step shoes. In fact, he makes a brief appearance at the end of each show throughout its limited run ( it closes Jan. 3 ). While this marks Flatley's Broadway debut, he swears it will also be his swan song as a performer. We'll see about that...
When Reid Ewing brings new meaning to the term "doggy style," we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. Since this is Thanksgiving week, I want to say how thankful I am for each and every visitor to www.BillyMasters.com, the site that'll stuff more than just your turkey! I'm also thankful for the team behind me because, let's face itI'm too pretty for prison. And I'm thankful for all your questions. So send them along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I hold auditions to find myself a protégédance experience not necessary, but the position does require full-frontal nudity. Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
