"This makes me happy for the OG Charmed fans. What a gift!" Alyssa Milano captions a photo of Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan at 90s Con. No word on why Alyssa missed this Charmed reunion...but we can guess.
Typically, I wouldn't mind banging policemen in the middle of the night. The more, the merrier. But last week, it was not a tryst that startled my slumber. I was informed that I might have to evacuate the ancestral Masters Manor due to an inferno mere inches away.
That the house ablaze was purchased by Senator Elizabeth Warren for her son was less pressing than the possibility of your beloved Billy perishing. While I was spared, the Warren house was not as lucky. Even worse, I only got seven hours of sleep that night!
Entrepreneur Peter Thiel is co-founder of PayPal and a gay conservative. He's also entangled in the death of a male model. A blind item recently made the rounds about a model who committed suicide after his billionaire beau married another. People identified the model as Jeff Thomas and the mogul as David Geffen. They got it half right.
In an unreleased interview from last November, Thomas identifies himself as being "kept" by the married Thiel, and he clearly knew his worth: "If I'm gonna give up relationships I have, and give up my dreams right now, during COVID, or dating other guys or pursuing people, then I'm going to get a $300,000 car and I'm going to get a $13 million home."
This probably sounds like a great deal, but it comes at a price. "It was stressful, [Thiel] wanted me to get the nicest car, the nicest house. He wanted to kind of show his power, to kind of show that he had me in his dollhouse." Thomas adds, "It's not like I was his boyfriend really, I was just kind of his friend that was there for him when he needed, you know, whatever he needed." Whatever!
And yet, Jeff reportedly got tired of being "kept" and moved from Hollywood to Miami. But not into some little apartment. He moved into a high-priced high-rise and continued to have all of the trappings of his previous life. How far he got from Thiel is questionable, since he attended the billionaire's New Year's Eve party.
Friends say he was thinking about becoming a firefighter or EMT. On March 8, he posted a video from an icy plunge pool looking as hot as ever. Hours later, he was dead on the pavement far below his deluxe apartment in the sky. One agent tried to spin Jeff's fall as an accident while trying to take a selfie from his balcony. From everything I've read, Thomas was a lot of things, but he wasn't stupid. His brother quickly went public, saying Jeff "struggled with addiction and mental health challenges, which ultimately led to his tragic passing." Thiel has not issued a comment.
90s Con reunited casts from '90s shows, including 90210 and Charmed. While Shannen Doherty was scheduled to appear on the Charmed panel, she skipped the 90210 one. But she did pose with the cast in attendance (Tori, Jennie, Jason, Ian). Several fans even got professional photos between Shannen and Jasonas you'll see on our website.
Then Doherty joined the "power of three"...kinda. Three "charmed ones" were there�Shannen, Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan (who replaced Doherty). Also on the dais were Brian Krause, Dorian Gregory and Drew Fuller. Shannen first addressed her cancer battle, saying, "I'm feeling great, thank you!" Then she lightened the mood. She feigned ignorance after seeing fans with autographs that said, "Forever, Chris" or "Love Chris."
"I just want to know who Chris is?" she asked.
That would be Fuller, who joined the show after her departure. When the panel was asked who was the favorite villain or demon, Shannen had no hesitation. "Cole...I was fortunate enough to date Cole in real life and, uh...yeah, Cole was my favorite demon."
Dancing with the Stars bridesmaid JoJo Siwa has revealed when she knew she was gay. "I fell in love for the first time at Disney World. I realized I was gay at Disney World. I went through stages of heartbreak at Disney World." I don't like to tell anyone what to do, but if I were her, I'd stay away from Disney World!
This week's "Ask Billy" question came from Henry in Detroit: "I just saw a headline that said Rory Culkin shows his penis in Swarm. It's called 'shocking'. Do you have it?"
I have no idea what "Swarm" is. Is it something to do with bees? If so, count me outunless I have an EpiPen handy. But, I tracked down the footage, which takes place in the first episode...so, apparently this is a series. There is Culkin, naked as the day he was born, with his penis smooshed against a glass bowl of strawberries. Why? Who can say. One of my proofreaders tells me that the New York Post called it "dirty and unnecessary." Judge for yourselfon BillyMasters.com .
When a Culkin is showing off his stinger, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Admittedly, I was more impressed by Culkin's body than his stingerbut that's me. Happily, you can see all that and more on www.BillyMasters.com, the site that is neither dirty nor unnecessary. If you have a question burning in your loins, share it with me at Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before those policemen come back for a social call. Until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.
