“Well, we went out for breakfasts and, you know, dated.” Mark-Paul Gosselaar talks about how he and co-star Breckin Meyer developed their chemistry for the new series “Franklin & Bash“. If I recall correctly, Breckin and Ryan Phillipe did the same thing for the film “54”.

hollywood-worrall-larue-donovan-1“Well, we went out for breakfasts and, you know, dated.” – Mark-Paul Gosselaar talks about how he and co-star Breckin Meyer developed their chemistry for the new series “Franklin & Bash”. If I recall correctly, Breckin and Ryan Phillipe did the same thing for the film “54”.

If reports are to be believed, Florida was the only state in the union not to have any snow last week. With the rest of the country in chaos, Billy barely got back to LA alive. OK, I’m actually not back in LA as I write this from the charming, but chilly DFW airport. I’m going on the assumption that I make it back eventually. I suppose you won’t know until next week, when I tell you I had a ball at the Golden Globes and at the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas (where I will apparently be sitting within spitting distance of the stage).

The week before Miss America hit the Strip, the Adult Video Awards were there. And who should pop up but Andy Dick. Wait – Andy Dick? At the straight porn awards? Well, a number of my gay porn pups were also in attendance. From what we hear, Andy was actually making a nuisance of himself with one of the ladies, of all things! According to our sources, he went backstage prior to the show’s start and found himself in a dressing room with “paid talent” (as Charlie Sheen’s lawyer would call her), Tera Patrick. Andy allegedly kept following Chi Chi and Tera around, slurring his words and spilling beer on them. At one point, Chi Chi reportedly bellowed, “Leave me alone!” – and when Miss La Rue speaks, you better believe someone listened. Before Dick could ask, “Where’s my career gone?” a beefy security guard appeared and escorted him from the premises.

Streisand is ready to return to musical theatre – at least on film. According to Arthur Laurents, Streisand is thisclose to taking on the towering role of Mama Rose in a big screen remake of “Gypsy”. But, contrary to published reports, she will not direct (says Laurents, “She once wanted to, but playing Rose is enough to make her happy”). The musical, which was written for Ethel Merman, first made it to the big screen in 1962 with Rosalind Russell (and Lisa Kirk, but that’s another story). It was later remade for television with Bette Midler in 1993. Other people have previously been attached to a remake – most notably Liza Minnelli, who almost did it a decade ago. Barbra first discussed the idea with lyricist Steven Sondheim, but waited to make a decision until she had Laurents’ blessing. “Barbra and I have been getting along very well now for some time. We’ve talked about it a lot, and she knows what she’s doing. She has my approval. She had a mother who she always thought was Mama Rose. I don’t want to get into the details, but the point is she knows. She’s got it in her. She’s going to be much more than people expect.” Arthur also has a sentimental reason for seeing Streisand in the role – he directed her first Broadway musical, “I Can Get It ForYou Wholesale”. “We’re talking about ‘Gypsy’ being a bookend for us. She began with me, and this will be a grand farewell for us,” says the 92-year-old Laurents.

In an interview with Piers Morgan that ran on British television, Kelly Osbourne said that the cause of her break-up with former fiancé Luke Worrall was that he had some growing up to do and that the relationship made her “feel not good enough, not pretty enough. . .I can’t force somebody to treat me good. I can’t force somebody to be the man they should be to me.” I think part of the problem may have been his penchant for exposing himself on the Internet! First we had that oft-circulated nude posed photo of him that stops just past the pubes. Then his penis made a miraculous appearance during a Skype session. The screenshot saved by an unknown woman shows Luke reclining back, genitalia at full attention, with nary a corkscrew in sight. The lady blocked out her photo in the bottom left-hand corner, but that doesn’t take away from luscious Luke – as you can see on BillyMasters.com

Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Gerry in St. Louis: “I totally love Trevor Donovan on ‘90210’. Will he get an actual boyfriend? Or at least get some hot sex scenes?”

We’re told that the character of Teddy will have quite an active sex life, thank you very much. While we were teased by him kissing sexy Kyle Riabko, we hear that he’ll get an actual boyfriend named Marco, who is described as “super-athletic and friendly”. But first there’ll be a romp over spring break with someone who makes the almost perfect Trevor Donovan look positively puny. Enter Alan Ritchson – who you all remember from “American Idol”, or various underwear modeling gigs, or his starring role on “Blue Mountain State” (a show I seem to be the only one watching), or his turn as Aquaman on “Smallville”. Oh, NOW you remember him. Well, he’ll be playing Tripp, a prep school friend who Teddy always had a crush on. When Teddy and Tripp meet over spring break, Teddy comes out to his unbearably hot friend, they kiss, and… stay tuned.

By the way, do you remember months ago when I told you that Trevor would be quite scantily clad during his guest-starring appearance on “CSI”? Did you remember to tape it? If not, you missed quite a bit of flesh – which of course you can see on BillyMasters.com. But this episode did leave me with one question – why didn’t he tear off the center of the toilet seat cover before sitting down? Have I been doing it wrong all these years?

When I’m probing deep into bathroom etiquette, it’s definitely time to end yet another column. Someone must know the answer to this. There must be some expert out there on public bathroom stalls. Does Larry Craig have a website? ‘Cause I do – www.BillyMasters.com And I even answer your questions. Just send them along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Trevor turns up in a George Michael video! So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
