"I'd never done that before—on camera, at least. … I don't think."—Harry Styles discussed shooting sex scenes for his upcoming movie My Policeman (with both Emma Corrin and David Dawson) and Don't Worry Darling (with Florence Pugh and Gemma Chan). It's the "I don't think" that has my curiosity piqued.

I don't know if there's a gayer story this week than Harry Styles donning a sequin jumpsuit alongside an equally bedazzled Shania Twain to belt "Man, I Feel Like a Woman" at Coachella. Never has Styles looked so feminine and yet so masculine. Not only that, but he looked positively giddy—like he was living out a secret fantasy. During his introduction of Shania, he said, "This lady taught me to sing. She also told me that men are trash." Proving the point, Shania's mike was barely audible. You can catch the video on BillyMasters.com .

In one of the most shocking stories I've heard in a long time, playwright David Mamet has come out as a supporter of Florida's "Don't Say Gay" law! In a discussion with Fox News host Mark Levin, he made some startling allegations about male teachers: "Teachers are inclined—particularly men—because men are predators to pedophilia." He added, "What we have is kids not only being indoctrinated but groomed, in a very real sense, by people who are, whether they know it or not, sexual predators." This'll kill his friend, Patti LuPone.

Anderson Cooper has tested positive for the coronavirus. The next day, Barry Manilow tested positive as well. Coincidence?

We're probably going to take some time off from "Billy Masters LIVE" due to my upcoming travels. But last week, we enjoyed a return visit from Sharon Gless. As you'll recall, Gless was featured on our season three premiere. We had such a good time talking about her memoir, Apparently There Were Complaints, we had her back to focus on Cagney & Lacey and her experiences kicking alcohol at Hazelden. She had such sensational stories, we never got to talk about her post-"C&L" years—including Queer As Folk. So she'll be back in a month or so. Until then, you can watch all of our shows on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV, or on www.BillyMasters.com/TV .

In an oddly related story, Thandiwe Newton has been jettisoned from the latest Magic Mike flick. Apparently, Thandiwe and Channing Tatum had been at odds throughout the first month of shooting in London. Last week, the fighting escalated. Some onlookers claim it had something to do with the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, while others insisted it had to do with that Oscar slap that I refuse to ever speak about again. While we don't know the specifics, we do know that Thandiwe ran off the set and never returned. She had an ally in director Steven Soderbergh. Alas, Chan could not be swayed and put out the call to recast. Bing, bang, boom—Thandiwe's out and Salma Hayek's in. Thandiwe's reps say she left the project for "personal reasons."

Channing might want to touch base with Tom Daley. As you know, the famed diver is also a whiz with a knitting needle. "It's so therapeutic, and you can make some really crazy things," said Tom. "Honestly, the most requested thing for my friends' birthdays and things like that are cock socks. I've done so many willy warmers, it's unreal." One wonders if hubby Dustin Lance Black sits in on the fittings.

Speaking of cocks, Mark Wahlberg has revealed the location of his giant prosthetic penis from Boogie Nights: "It's in a safe, locked away. It's not something I can leave out. All of a sudden, my kids are looking for the spare phone charger and pull that thing out. … It wouldn't be a good look!"

On the flip side, Simon Rex bemoaned the fact that he could not hold onto his penis from Red Rocket: "I don't think that was an option, but it will be in a museum one day." When asked by People Magazine if it could turn up in the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, he said, "I like that idea." If it's gonna end up in a museum, I suspect it would be a welcomed addition to the other exhibits in the Icelandic Phallological Museum in Reykjavik!

Didya know Rex has a connection with Meghan Markle? Way back in 2005, they both appeared in an episode of the sitcom Cuts, on the now-defunct UPN. After the pair was spotted having lunch, a tabloid offered Simon $70K for some juicy dish: "I was broke as fuck! I really needed the money. But I'll be on food stamps before I do that." Meghan heard about his gallant behavior and sent him a note, saying, "It's nice to know there are still good people." Simon added, "I framed the thank-you letter she wrote me. She has very nice penmanship, btw."

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Tom, in Michigan: "Have you been watching Minx? So many hot guys. The blond, Dane, is really amazing. Is he gay?"

I haven't really looked behind the scenes on Minx, which is on HBO Max. But based on your question, I checked out Dane in episode five. He is played by Nate Crnkovich, who reminds me of a young Ted McGinley … or Steve Kmetko. I've made a few discreet inquiries and learned two bits of information: 1) He was the Mr. Supranational of 2019 (a Polish beauty pageant) and 2) Every inch of his kielbasa is real. That's all I've got so far, except for what you can enjoy on BillyMasters.com .

When a "Minx" is sporting a python, we've definitely come to the end of yet another column. It's like an episode of Wild Kingdom on www.BillyMasters.com—the site that would make Marlin Perkins blush. If you have a question, drop a note to me at Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Nate Crnkovich buys a vowel! So, until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
