"If you're gonna wear a mask—and you MUST wear a mask — it better say something."—Original "Dreamgirl" Sheryl Lee Ralph makes her entrance on "Billy Masters LIVE" wearing a black mask encrusted with crystals that spelled out DIVA!

It's possible El Presidente may be in for a rude awakening. Even before his coronation, er, inauguration, it was widely reported that Mr. Trump used some colorful language behind the scenes on The Apprentice. Tapes were said to exist, being locked up by producer Mark Burnett. However, those tapes may soon see the light of day. U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield ruled, "Plaintiffs' motion to compel the MGM Entities to make available to Plaintiffs certain video footage is granted." While there will likely be some explosive footage in the archives, I don't expect it will change anyone's mind—especially people who voted for him after the infamous "Pussy" tape.

Even beloved folks are known to make a misstep—like Ellen DeGeneres. When she resumed doing her show from home, she thought she'd make people happy. Instead, she pissed people off! One of her first jokes landed with a thud: "This is like being in jail. ... It's mostly because I've been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone in here is gay." Criticism was quick and vehement. People felt that Ellen in her $24-million mansion had little to complain about. Even prisoners took offense at the idea that everyone in the hoosegow is gay. Ellen's response? She took down the videos. When she got criticized over that, the clips went back up—minus the joke.

You know what show is doing very well? Billy Masters LIVE. When I woke up at the crack of noon last Wednesday, I had oodles of messages saying that our latest show had gone viral. "Viral?" I asked. "It's like P-town over Fourth of July!!" What piqued people's interest was when Bruce Vilanch, Andrea Martin and composer Marc Shaiman joined me in performing a scene from the musical Hairspray. Bruce was Edna, Andrea was Mrs. Pingleton, and Shaiman played Tracy. Naturally, I played Penny—due to my penchant for sleeping with Black men.

As if that weren't enough, Thursday's show featured Sheryl Lee Ralph and Sam Harris joining me in the famous dressing room scene from Dreamgirls. Obviously, I played Lorrell—due to my penchant for sleeping with married Black men! The fun continues live every Tuesday and Thursday at 3 p.m. ET on Facebook and YouTube. Of course, the replays can always be found ( for free ) on BillyMasters.com . Just click on "TV."

Some people in lockdown are coming up with ingenious ways to pass the time. Take Tori Spelling. The former starlet has offered fans a chance to join a live video conference with her. Isn't that nice? Ah, but there's a catch—the virtual meet-and-greet comes with a $95 price tag. I'm torn—on one hand, who the hell does Tori Spelling think she is? Cher? Celine Dion? Donny and Marie? On the other hand, if people are willing to pay it, what does it matter to me? Sure, Billy Masters LIVE is free ... but not everyone is as, shall we say, accommodating to their fans ( especially the Black, married fans ). On the positive side, Tori's meetings are on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. ET—so she's not conflicting with me, should we happen to share any fans. Spelling's hubby, Dean McDermott, came to her defense: "All the studios, everything is shut down. She has no way to work like everybody else. She has no job to go to." That's all true—but, really, you can't blame Tori's career on the coronavirus.

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Harry in Chicago. "I came across some nude photos of Dio Johnson and I think you'd enjoy them. Do you have any idea where they came from?"

Here's a better question: Who is Dio Johnson? I did some research and apparently he's an actor who has done some bit parts on NCIS and Grey's Anatomy. And at some point, he was known as Dio Chaz Johnson. With that out of the way, let me open your photos ... WOW! That's a whole lotta Dio!!! Or, as they'd say in Spanish, "Dios mio!" Before his legitimate career started, he did some porn—because, y'know, there are bills to be paid. He was allegedly a bi Latin guy who went by the name of Pistola! And his Pistola is definitely cocked in these photos! Dio's certainly got it all—and we're happy to show it all on BillyMasters.com .

When someone's got a Pistola in their pocket and they're happy to see me, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Needless to say, your first stop every morning should be BillyMasters.com—the site that has it all. Gossip, nudes, tops, bottoms and now—live shows! Yes, don't forget that we do live broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 3 p.m. ET. Subscribe to our channel on YouTube—Billy Masters TV. If you have a question—or a hot Black man you wanna share—drop me a note at Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Tori considers a career in online porn! Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
