"My friends are leaving California. My hangar, the guy right across, he was packing up his hangar and I said, 'Where are you going?' And he says, 'I'm moving to Sedona, Arizona. I can't take it anymore. I can't walk down the streets and see the homeless.'"—Caitlyn Jenner tells Sean Hannity why she should be governor of California. When asked about construction of California's high-speed railway, she added, "I can get on my plane and I'll be in San Francisco in 50 minutes." Keep that in mind the next time any of you need a ride to the Folsom Street Fair!

It may have just been Mother's Day, but everyone is talking about the "dad bod"—which, for those of you youngsters, is a body with perhaps a spare tire or two around the midsection. The recent discussions are courtesy of Will Smith—who was previously in possession of a gym bod. Will posted a revealing photo with the caption, "I'm gonna be real wit yall—I'm in the worst shape of my life." Headlines hailed Will's photo as "body-positive" and helping to change beauty standards. And, how did he celebrate? By going to the gym and going on a diet! And by signing a six-figure deal to document—you guessed it—how he got rid of his dad bod. Best Shape of My Life will follow Will's journey to losing the weight—with the help of personal trainers, state-of-the-art gyms and various doctors. So, for several thousand dollars, you too could get into the best shape of your life!

Kevin Spacey may have dodged a $40M bullet. You'll recall that a man simply identified as CD filed suit against the actor for assault and battery from an incident when he was 14 years old. The court ruled that unless CD reveals his identity, the case will be tossed. Attorneys for the plaintiff state that the 50+-year-old victim "is emotionally unable to proceed with the action and will discontinue his claims." I'm sure Spacey is guilty of numerous crimes. But I also believe that until allegations are proven, they are simply allegations. And if the alleged perpetrator is named, the victim filing suit should also be named—with the exception of minors (although that wasn't the case in Nantucket). This isn't the end of Spacey's woes—there are cases pending in the UK. To be continued, I'm sure.

Broadway will open in the fall—maybe. The production Chicago will knock 'em dead starting Sept. 14. Six (the new musical about Henry VIII's wives) will kill starting Sept. 17, while Phantom of the Opera swings back into action Oct. 22. But will any of this happen? We tackled Broadway on last week's "Billy Masters LIVE" with writers Michael Riedel and Eddie Shapiro. Both have penned two volumes on the Great White Way which I cannot recommend enough. See what they had to say on "Billy Masters LIVE" on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.

This week, we have another panel discussion with some fabulous fellas talking about anything and everything. Tune in—Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, noon PT. 'Cause if we're there, we're live.

One would think the final season of a landmark, award-winning show would get tongues wagging. But that wagging about Pose is coming courtesy of Janet Mock, the show's transgender writer and director. The place—a private premiere party in NYC. The audience—Hollywood heavyweights (and I don't mean like Will Smith). Janet started her tirade by saying, "Why am I making $40,000 a motherfucking episode? Huh? Do you know who the fuck I am? Do you know what I fucking mean? Huh? I'm angry! Fuck Hollywood!" While $40K a week is nothing to sneeze at, it's peanuts in Hollywood … especially for a writer and producer. Mock went after Ryan Murphy, who defended himself by saying he brought in transgender talent both in front of and behind the camera.

And then … Janet asked her boyfriend to rise. That boyfriend is Angel Bismark Curiel, a 25-year-old actor on Pose. "Let me tell you something about love," said Janet. "Today I was gonna let you go. I was gonna let you go, right. But what did I do? I fucked someone on the crew, right? Angel, Angel, I'm not losing you. You hear me? You are fucking important to me. I don't want to live in a house alone. I want you, you motherfucker. Right there—that's who I want. I'm getting what's mine." I am speechless. All I know is Angel didn't walk out. So I'm shutting up—because, clearly, we have nothing in common.

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from James in New York City: "I heard that Lil Nas X accidentally posted a dick pic online. Do you have it?"

This is exactly like two other recent stories. Jonathan Bennett, from Mean Girls, posted a photo of his morning cappuccino, and you could see his penis in the reflection of his glass mug. Months earlier, River Viiperi took a selfie of himself in the shower, and his penis was clearly visible in his chrome knob—which is not a euphemism. The story of Lil Nas X is shockingly similar. He took a selfie in his tub whilst holding a chrome fixture. And, you guessed it, his penis appears in the chrome. And, of course we have the photos. In case you don't know, these are not the first photos showing that Nas ain't so little. Check them all out on BillyMasters.com .

When we're cleaning up with a gay rapper, it's definitely time to end another column. We ran long this week. And speaking of length, you can find a variety of sizes on BillyMasters.com—the site that's diverse. If you have a question, send it to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I'll get back to you before we figure out what's between a gym bod and a dad bod. (I'll let you in on a secret—the answer is ME!) Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
