"I would let them both die."—Kathy Griffin answers Howard Stern's question, "If you had to save Anderson Cooper's life, or Andy Cohen's life, who do you choose at this point?" When pressed to choose one, she saved the Silver Fox. PHEW. Of Cohen, she said, "I hate him. I loathe him. I think he is a talentless piece of shit." That pretty much says it all.

Adam Rippon made a startling revelation about his love life. He just announced that he's been dating Jussi-Pekka Kajaala. And, despite all his talk about Grindr, they actually met on Tinder—so I guess Grindr is where you go to hook up, but Tinder is where you go to find a boyfriend. Adam met the Finnish realtor online about seven months ago. At first, it was just chatter. Rippon said they then "started to hang out a little bit more, because we were both really busy. Now that I'm even busier, I thought it was a better time to hang out." He went public with the news by posting a shirtless pic of the pair hiking in Runyon Canyon with the caption "Good boys Finnish first." Do they?

Adam's time is even more precious these days ... he'll be competing on Dancing with the Stars. Remember I told you that ABC was trying to woo the skater to join the "All Athletes" season, but Rippon was already committed to the Stars on Ice tour. We hear that Adam and his dancing partner ( who has not been named ) will be rehearsing on the road and then flying to Los Angeles for the competition. The "Stars on Ice" tour continues through May 20.

This special season of DWTS will be much shorter than usual. It starts on April 30 and will run for just four weeks—apparently ABC is only interested in airing it during May sweeps. Joining Rippon on the DWTS journey will be snowboarder Jamie Anderson, softball player Jennie Finch, and, thank the Lord above, skater Tonya Harding. Although the entire cast won't be announced until Friday, April 13, may I ask a question? Who does Greg Louganis have to whack before he's invited to compete?

Insiders tell me that RuPaul's Drag Race is trying to produce an abbreviated season of its own—dedicated to drag legends! If the buzz is correct, we could see people like Coco Peru, Lady Bunny, Chi Chi La Rue, Lypsinka, Jackie Beat, Heklina and oodles of others with varying degrees of talent battling on the catwalk. Frankly, I think they should just give the award to Lypsinka now and call it a day.

Ryan Murphy has been known for resuscitating the careers of many once-hot actors. He's bracing himself for one of the biggest challenges of his life. Murphy just announced that one of the stars of the next season of American Horror Story will be Dame Joan Collins! Now, I know what you're thinking—backstage footage of Joan without her wig and makeup could be a horror story on its own. But it should be noted she previously ditched all glamour for her last film, The Time of Their Lives, which was pretty good. We don't know much about the next season of AHS, except that it will also star Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Cheyenne Jackson and possibly Anjelica Houston. We also know Evan Peters will play a hairstylist and that Joan Collins will be his grandmother. I bet she was angling to play his love interest!

A show which may not be returning is Project Runway. The franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company, which is currently in bankruptcy. A+E Networks cancelled the Weinsteins' contract for the next two seasons due to the allegations and pending legal battle against Harvey. In fact, some outlets have claimed that Harvey used Project Runway as a "pipeline" to young female models. Lantern Capital has been angling to buy the Weinstein assets and if that happens, Lifetime is happy to work with them to keep "Project Runway" afloat.

One of the least-talked-about aspects of the Weinstein drama has been estranged wife Georgina Chapman. Rumors continue to swirl that a multi-pronged deal was made between Harvey and Georgie Girl that included bankrolling her design house and placing her on Project Runaway All-Stars as a judge. In return, she turned a blind eye to Harvey's peccadilloes and enjoyed the favors of a certain dancing man who Harvey also promised to pay off in a tit-for-tat manner. People swear to me that everyone involved could be hauled in to testify should the legal battle get ugly.

Darin in Houston sent in this "Ask Billy" question: "I heard that Harry Styles performed somewhere in Europe with a cock ring. Is it true? Do you have videos or photos?"

While we don't know exactly what was going on under Harry's trousers, we can at least fill in a few gaps. First, it happened in Munich, Germany. Harry was wearing a snug purple suit and brandishing flags in both arms—apparently he thought he was a gay man in a disco in 1985. ( Were it 1975, he'd have had a tambourine. ) As he arches his back, it does appear that a small cylindrical form pops from the front of his trousers. But, upon closer inspection, a similar shape pops from the side as well. This made me think it could be the pant pockets and the angle of the camera. So we did more investigating, found a video from a different angle and, well, let's just say you can see exactly what's happening on BillyMasters.com .

When Dame Joan Collins could compete on RuPaul's Drag Race, it's definitely time to end yet another column. One of the advantages of celebrating Orthodox Easter is that all the lilies and candies are half-price. But where, oh where, are my daffodils? While I look, check outBillyMasters.com—the site that's been known to raise more than the dead. If you have a question, send it to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I eat my weight in Peeps! To the Albanians, Krishti u ngjall. To the Greeks, Christos Anesti. And to everyone else, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
