"I think maybe I had something to do with it, because I was always a big fan of doing fancy dress with them when they were smaller, which Gemma hated, but Harry always embraced. Who doesn't love playing dress up?"—Harry Styles' mother explains why the pop singer enjoys wearing dresses—and why his sister doesn't.

The end is near … as in the end of the year. I know that because this is the 47th column of this year. According to my abacus, that means we have only four more columns before we recap 2020. In light of the pandemic, perhaps I'll skip it—just like I'm skipping Thanksgiving. Yes, Billy is all alone in Fort Lauderdale. Due to some drama at the Filth2Go Beach House, I had to risk life and limb, and fly down to Florida. In a typical maternal moment, Big Mama Masters said, "Just stay there. No sense in flying back just to eat turkey with me and Big Daddy." Or did she say "Big Daddy and I?" Either way, apparently I'm staying put.

A recent addition to our community explained one of the things that made it easy for her to come out. Nikki Blonsky said, "The LGBTQIA community has embraced me since the moment I got 'Hairspray'. They welcomed me with open arms and I felt so a part of the community already. For me, it was a long time coming. I wanted to date women and it just was a moment in my life where I was finally just really ready to be myself."

Shortly after coming out, Nikki came on "Billy Masters LIVE" for a special show alongside the Link from the TV version of "Hairspray," Garrett Clayton. We even surprised them with members of the original Broadway cast and national tour—because that's what we do on "Billy Masters LIVE." We've taken a couple of weeks off for Thanksgiving, but we'll return with new shows on Dec. 1—World AIDS Day. In fact, we're closing out the year with "Billy's 12 Divas of December." Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, head to Billy Masters TV on YouTube, or our website of BillyMasters.com/TV. All of our shows are there and, as one network used to say, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" By the way, our ratings have suddenly skyrocketed. We've reached a new plateau—and you know how much I enjoy looking down from on high.

While in the middle of my Floridian frenzy, I found myself sucked into six hours of the BET miniseries, The New Edition Story. Being a Bostonian of a certain age, I vividly remember the splash these boys from Roxbury made—to say nothing of the drama around Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. It was the perfect distraction. I took particular note of the scene when the boys' manager (played by Michael Rapaport) found Bobby in a parked car, high as a kite. It wasn't so much seeing him do cocaine; it was the sight of two female heads bobbing up and down on his lap. Certainly I'm familiar with vehicular fellatio, but I didn't expect to see it on basic cable.

Days later, it reared its head again. On Grey's Anatomy, Alex Landi (playing Dr. Kim) offered to give Jake Borelli (as Dr. Schmitt) a blow job in the supply closet. On network television! In primetime! Being responsible professionals during a pandemic, Borelli said, "Can we leave my mask on?" It's been my experience that the recipient's mouth is rarely employed during such acts. If you missed it, check out our website.

This week's "Ask Billy" question comes from Kevin in New Hampshire: "I think Josh O'Connor is super-sexy. [He plays Prince Charles on The Crown.] I've seen him interviewed, and he comes off gay. Any thoughts? And hot pics of him?"

It's time for another spirited round of "Gay or British." It never gets old. Recently, O'Connor went public with girlfriend, Margot Hauer-King. Of course, that doesn't mean anything. In fact, he made a strange comment after playing Johnny in the film "God's Own Country": "I know I'd dated the Johnny type in the past, emotionally inarticulate, unable to love and be loved, and I've found, through the process of playing Johnny, some kind of peace and hopefully a greater understanding and empathy." Of course, he may mean that he's dated the female equivalent of Johnny. By the by, his character Johnny has quite a bit of gay sex. And, being a British film, there's quite a bit of nudity. If you'd like a gander of O'Connor's bits and bobs, check out BillyMasters.com .

When we're revealing Prince Charles' scepter, it's time to end yet another column. Come to think of it, we have a nude photo of the real Prince Charles, so we'll post that as well. Despite being an annus horribilis, there are still things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful for my health, my sense of humor and my unfailing ability to satisfy a man even with a six-foot gap. I'm thankful for my friends and family—even when they tell me to stay away. I'm thankful for everyone who helps make this column possible each and every week. But most of all, I'm thankful for you—my devoted readers (and viewers). You can be thankful by checking out BillyMasters.com—the site that provides a cornucopia of carnal delights. If you have a question, I apparently have lots of time on my hands. So drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before our 52nd column of 2020. Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
