"First of all, it's totally hogwash. My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family. And for those lies to be perpetuated in this so-called documentary film, I think it's evil. I will never, and I mean this, ever forgive those who perpetuated this insanity."—Dionne Warwick addresses claims that sister Dee Dee sexually molested Whitney Houston and her brother Gary. I gotta give props to anyone who still uses the word hogwash!

Last week, a 23-year-old male model came out as gay—and, no, it was not someone on The Bachelorette. This is Derek Chadwick, who is described as an "influencer"—which begs the question, how much influence does someone no one ever heard of have? Eh, he's happy, I'm happy. And he's hot enough to post photos of on BillyMasters.com .

Speaking of male models, four are coming out, claiming they were sexually assaulted by photographer Rick Day. Barrett Pall accused Day of masturbating him and urging him to ejaculate on his face! The second model, Kai Braden, said Day pinned him against the wall and asked if he had ever had sex with another guy. Kai said he never had sex period, so Day backed off. Twins Michael and Zach Zakar say they were sexually assaulted separately. Michael said Day tried to push his head down as the photographer pulled out his penis. According to Zach, Day said, "I'm going to shoot you, then you're going to make me shoot."

There's a dispute a-brewin' between Kim Kardashian and Tyson Beckford. It all started when Beckford commented on a photo of Kim where one hip looks significantly larger than the other. ( I assumed it was sloppy Photoshopping. ) He wrote, "Sorry I don't care for it personally. She is not real, doctor fucked up on her right hip." Kim wasted no time in clapping back ( and from the looks of her derriere, she could cause a standing ovation ): "Sis we all know why you don't care for it," with an emoji of a frog, a steaming cup of coffee ( or, more likely, tea ), and a nail being painted. Suddenly I feel SO old—I thought she was asking Tyson to get together for a manicure over coffee and frog legs! I guess "Sis" should have clued me in that she was implying Tyson is gay—and apparently getting his nails done, drinking tea and doing something unspeakable with a frog! Tyson responded, "Train 5-6 days a wk, weights Martial Arts and Firearms and I defend those who can't defend themselves! I support LGBTQ, even though I'm not Gay. It's just the Human thing to do." Then TMZ caught up with matriarch Kris Jenner and asked what she thought. She amped up the ridiculous factor by saying, "Who's Tyson?" Like there's a Jenner/Kardashian woman who is unaware of a hot Black man within 100 feet!

Poor Britney. Prior to performing at Brighton ( UK ) Pride last weekend, Spears released a Pride edition of her perfume, Fantasy. She even donated one pound ( British currency ) from every purchase to GLAAD. Now, that sounds good until you do the math. The perfume costs 40 pounds, so her donation is roughly 2.5 percent of sales—which I still think is OK. But many people feel it isn't enough. One critic said, "Can you not afford to donate more and also to a UK based charity, you are after all celebrating love and equality here in the UK." In other words, the optics are bad. I suspect Spears' heart is in the right place, but she's really not what I'd call a numbers person. She thinks, "Blah-blah-blah, I'm doing a good thing." So give the girl a break. And perhaps a calculator.

Can you believe it's been almost 20 years since Trick came out? The film that introduced us to Christian Campbell, JP Pitoc, Miss Coco Peru and the comedic talents of Tori Spelling was released in 1999. Apparently, people have been clamoring for a sequel—but enough about Miss Spelling. Back in 2014, director Jim Fall said he was open to the idea. Tori pitched her scenario: "I always saw her still wedging her way into Gabe's relationship—even offering to be a surrogate for them while she does a one woman musical on 'Mommie Dearest'. That's my fantasy." JP had his own view: "I always like the happily ever after thing. And I think that they would stay together and they'd have kids." Fall said, "It'll never be like anything you just said." I guess we'll find out soon enough. Fall says he's written the script, is planning a reading with the cast, is starting to raise the money and hopes to have the film released next year to coincide with the 20th anniversary. He better hurry.

Our "Ask Billy" question is from Stephen in Boston: "I know you said Davey Wavey was running a gay porn website. Are any of his personal videos on it?"

I don't believe he's shot any footage for the site. But some new nudes of him recently surfaced—allegedly from a hook-up site. And let's say Davey ain't shy about showing off his best side, as you'll see on BillyMasters.com .

When Davey's waving at us, it's definitely time to end yet another column. If I may briefly revisit last week's column, I am shocked that many people thought I trashed the Broadway musical Head Over Heels. Yes, there are things that I felt could be better, but I still loved it and had a great time—and from Billy Masters, that's a rave. For more of my ravings, check outBillyMasters.com—the site that will leave you head over heels. If you have a question, send it to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before someone explains to Tyson that we gays can actually defend ourselves ( but we appreciate the support ). Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
