"Back in the '80s, I did blow at that Chevron and dropped acid at that 7-Eleven."—Belinda Carlisle gives her son, James Duke Mason, a walking tour of West Hollywood. Watch The Go-Go's get inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on HBO Max.

Well, there's no getting around it. We must tackle the biggest story of the day: the story on everyone's lips and the story that has kept you up day and night. Did Derek Hough give Len Goodman the coronavirus? If he was going to infect someone, why, oh why, couldn't it have been Tyra? Here we are, writing this on the eve of the Dancing with the Stars finale, and the golden boy of the ballroom has been felled (yes, I said "felled"—look it up). Since he's in quarantine, one assumes he won't be able to judge the finale—unless they employ some sort of remote hook-up. Personally, I think the show works better with three judges, anyway.

Many of you are upset about the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict—although, why anyone is surprised is a mystery to me. Clearly, Wisconsin law was on his side, to say nothing of the judge, who inexplicably refused to allow the dead people to be referred to as "victims." Perhaps the term "people the defendant shot and killed" would have been OK—although not quite as succinct. In addition to his freedom, Kyle has something to look forward to. Matt Gaetz is considering inviting him to become a Congressional intern. Those interns have a long history of curious positions. Some end up on top of the desk. Some, like Joe Scarborough's, end up underneath.

There's been a new development in the case between Anthony Rapp and Kevin Spacey. In 2017, a reporter contacted Spacey's publicists and lawyers tipping them off about "Rapp's assertion that the defendant made a sexual advance on him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 years old." This led to an intense e-mail thread between Spacey, his manager, his two lawyers and his two publicists. And therein lies the problem. "None is a communication between the defendant and his lawyers without one or more of the manager and the PR people at least copied on the email. Such communications are not lawyer-client communications made in confidence and/or generated for litigation," said the judge. Reminiscent of Hillary Clinton: Spacey needs to produce those emails or suffer the consequences.

Last week, we kicked off our second hundred episodes of "Billy Masters LIVE" with three of my favorite fellas. Charles Busch, Michael Riedel and Bruce Vilanch joined me to discuss what it's like going to live shows in this so-called post-COVID world, what precautions are being taken in theaters and what's next. Of course, there were dishy stories about Elaine Stritch, Michele Lee, Hugh Jackman and oodles of others. We're off for Thanksgiving, but you can catch up on previous episodes by going to BillyMasters.com/TV or YouTube.com/BillyMastersTV.

On Dec. 2, NBC will air "Annie Live!," and the actor who will be portraying Franklin Delano Roosevelt is actually a polio survivor. "I tip my hat to NBC and the producers of 'Annie Live!' for authentically casting a person with a disability for this role," said actor Alan Toy. I look forward to future producers seeking clemency for an unknown the next time they want to make a flick about Jeffrey Dahmer or Hannibal Lecter!

Gay will be everywhere throughout the holiday season. Netflix's first gay holiday flick is Single All the Way, which will star Michael Urie, Luke Macfarlane (also in Bros), Kathy Najimy and Jennifer Coolidge. It debuts Dec. 2.

Should you be more interested in donning some gay apparel, The Bitch Who Stole Christmas features the largest group of RuPaul's Drag Race alums to ever be assembled. In addition to Ru (who is obviously the star), this flick includes Kimora Blac, Pandora Boxx, Heidi N. Closet, Laganja Estranja, Gottmik, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Jan, Kylie Sonique Love, Manila Luzon, Ginger Minj, Jaymes Mansfield, Kelly Mantle, Morgan McMichaels, Chad Michaels, Mayhem Miller, Peppermint, Porkchop, Raven, Latrice Royale and Rock M. Sakura. In addition to the girls, Carson Kressley, Ross Mathews and Michelle Visage will also appear … alongside Charo!!! Look for VH1 to drop this inevitable holiday classic Dec. 2.

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Tom in Orlando: "I just saw some very sexy nude photos of actor Chris Salvatore online. Didn't I read about him in your column? Where would I know him from?"

You may have seen him in the Eating Out flicks. Or, if you're in Nevada, you may have seen every inch of him in the Las Vegas production of Naked Boys Singing. (We have footage from the show on our website.) These latest shots come from a revealing B&W pictorial that highlights various portions of Salvatore's anatomy. While you can see a plethora of Chris' wares on his OnlyFans page, we'll show you the meat and potatoes on BillyMasters.com .

When we're sharing Salvatore's cornucopia, it's definitely time to end yet another column. But before we wrap up our Thanksgiving leftovers, I want to give thanks to the people behind the scenes—our webmaster, editors and legal counsel, to say nothing of my personal fluffers who ensure that each and every column is bursting with content. You can find the fruits of our labor on BillyMasters.com, the site that has more fruit than a pitcher of sangria! Should you have a question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Matt Gaetz takes credit for helping Kyle get off! Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
