“No – I think of ONE diva!” – Patti LuPone’s response to Seth Rudetsky’s question, “Do you think of three divas?  Bernadette, Betty and Patti?”  She followed her answer with a hearty laugh, adding, “What the f*ck did you think I was going to say?”


When I was seeing Patti LuPone in Provincetown on July 4th (audio clips can be found on BillyMasters.com), I ran into Ryan Murphy.  He and longtime beau David Miller got married earlier that day, staging their ceremony in the dunes.  How “unique.”  So many people meet there for the first time – maybe it has sentimental value for them.  Patti scattered rose petals around the lovebirds’ suite and sang a few extra songs for them at the concert.  When asked how he liked the show, Murphy said, “Are you kidding?  It was like crack.”  The dunes are making more and more sense. 

Barney Frank has the distinction of being the first sitting congressman in a same-sex marriage.  The ceremony, on the banks of the Charles River, was officiated by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and attended by Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry.  The vows included things like promising to love each other “on MSNBC or on Fox” and “in Congress or in retirement.”  Barney met James Ready back in 2005.  Ready admitted he’d had a crush on Barney for over 20 years.  Congrats.

Not everyone is embracing same-sex marriages.  A letter by Brad Pitt’s mom Jane was published in “The Springfield News-Leader.”  She was writing in response to an opinion piece justifying Christians’ refusal to vote for Romney because he’s a Mormon.  She said: “I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion.  But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortions, and shares Christian convictions concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon.”  She later refers to Obama as “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”  Many people have since attacked poor Mrs. Pitt for her beliefs – as if she’s not entitled to them any more than we are.  Her sons stood up for her, saying what a nice and kind person she is, and that they believe their mom has every right to express her opinion – and I agree.  Son Doug Pitt told Matt Lauer, “Moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any different.”

Eleven Bel Ami models/video stars are suing RSVP Cruises for $12 million.  Apparently, the cruise organizers hired these models to “mix and mingle” with the passengers on a Mediterranean cruise last summer.  In addition to a fee and a free cruise, Bel Ami also had the rights to film the boys onboard.  However, RSVP insisted that if anyone asked, the guys should say that Bel Ami sent them on a cruise because of all the hard work they’ve done.  Of course, once the translators got this information relayed to the various boys, no one was convinced this deal would stay private.  The beauteous Bel Ami boys were an immediate hit with the passengers.  Photos we’ve uncovered from the cruise show them frolicking in the pool in skimpy Speedos that I’m sure gave everyone hours of enjoyment.  Alas, it was to be only hours before RSVP demanded that the group leave when the ship docked in Tunisia.  They asked to stay at least one more day and leave when the ship got to Italy.  RSVP insisted on Tunisia.  Now RSVP and Holland America are being sued for breach of contract, fraud, and intentional interference with contractual relationships, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.  In addition to the emotional distress of being stranded in Tunisia, we hear that prior to the boys being thrown off the ship, other passengers got wind of their situation.  Knowing the lads were desperate, some passengers dared to offer them cash for sex – GASP!  Well, I’m sure that was traumatic, what with the devaluation of the Euro and all.  BTW, the plaintiffs’ names include some of your favorites – Rudko, Michal, Petr, Adrian, Lukas, Tamas, Igor, and Attila.  That’s not a list of video stars – that’s the roster of the Czech Olympic Water Polo Team!

Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Jared in Toronto: “I saw that play that you recommended – ‘High’ with Kathleen Turner.  I loved it, especially that hot boy, Evan.  You said you had nudes, but you couldn’t show them.  Come on – please?  He’s SO hot (and HUGE)!?”

Well, yes, someone sent me not only photos but also a video from the infamous nude scene in “High” starring Kathleen Turner and Evan Jonigkeit, who is as talented as he is hot.  I was asked to not share this material because certain people felt it could hurt the tour.  If anything, I think the footage would have sold more tickets, but what do I know?  Since the tour ended in Toronto, I don’t feel I need to keep it to myself any longer.  So, you can now see every inch of the enormously talented Evan on BillyMasters.com.  Enjoy!

When I’ve been holding onto a big package for way too long, it’s time to end yet another column.  We ran long, but I must say that since Ted Casablanca is no longer working for E!, he’s welcomed to join the Billy Masters Empire any time he’d like.  Just think, he could soon be a part of BillyMasters.com, the site that can always use someone a bit more “versatile”.  And if you’d like to get a hold of me, send a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com“>Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before the Bel Ami boys next cruise booking is Tom Cruise!  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
