True to his word, “Good Morning America” weatherman Sam Champion married his beau Rubem Robierb in NYC a few days before Christmas. The twosome had a reception in Miami on New Year’s Eve. Champion said, “It’s a shame we can’t officially have a legal ceremony in Florida. We’re not separating them, because we’d like to do it twice. New York it will be legal. Miami will be the spiritual side to celebrate with the people who have been with us and supporting us and been a part of our lives since we met.” There’s another significance to the date. The pair met at a New Year’s Eve party in Miami three years ago…
“I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay – as if being gay were some kind of fucking disease.” – Matt Damon addresses why he never commented on the rumors that he and Ben Affleck were lovers.
Before we discuss new news, let’s see how some of our favorite celebs spent the holiday season. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka stayed up until 2AM on Christmas Eve setting up an elaborate train set for son Gideon, and all he wanted to do on Christmas morning was play with a broom! Dustin Lance Black was invited to one of the many White House Christmas Parties – coincidentally (or not), the same one that CNN’s Don Lemon was at. A friend sent me a photo of what I thought was Barbara Eden and her grandchildren. It was Kathy Griffin and her nieces and nephew.

I was very concerned when a London newspaper reported that Sir Ian McKellen has prostate cancer. His people quickly shot down concern for the actor, saying the quote was taken from an old interview. Sir Ian is, in fact, fine. Yes, he did get two hearing aids, is having cataracts removed from his eyes, and is having a few teeth implanted. Other than that, he is the picture of health. He’s also about to start work on his first sitcom for British television. “Vicious” is about a bickering older gay couple. McKellen’s other half will be played by the equally fabulous Sir Derek Jacobi. The show is being produced by my dear friend, Gary Janetti, who was executive producer on “Will & Grace”, and is also the real-life boyfriend of Brad Goreski.
After several delays, the Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” was shot this summer. Directed by Stephen Soderbergh, the flick stars Michael Douglas as the popular pianist and Matt Damon as his secret lover Scott Thorson. Although it doesn’t hit HBO until spring, Damon did an interview with “Playboy” discussing it. “Michael was a wonderful kisser. I had to come out of the pool, go over to him, straddle him on a chaise lounge and start kissing him. It’s not like I kiss him just once. We drew it up like a football plan.” Matt also promises that we’ll see quite a bit of skin. “Normally I’d say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace. I mean, it’s tastefully done. But this movie’s not going to be for everyone.”
Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Frank in New Jersey: “You’re Orthodox, right? Did you hear about that calendar of hot nude Orthodox priests? Is it for real? Are they really priests?”
This is how rumors get started. I should know – I’ve started my fair share. It’s not a calendar of hot nude Orthodox priests. Some of them are wearing their collars! That said, the 2013 Orthodox Calendar features what is referred to as “12 seductive artistic pictures of Orthodox priests and their guests”. I’m quite partial to Mr. January – Father Vladimir from the Ukraine, who is photographed with his wife Yulia and his three sons who look like they walked out of a Bel Ami video (assuming they could get a work permit to shoot in the Czech Republic). May features brother priests, Jacob and Esua, who “have been together their entire lives and always take care of one another”. I bet they do! I must immediately order this calendar from Orthodox-Calendar.com.
What’s a new year without a new celebrity nude? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that it comes from “Big Brother” alum Will Wikle. Even while he’s continuing work as an ER nurse, he built up an impressive physique and resume as a much-sought-after NYC go-go boy. In fact, we quoted him in our wrap up from 2011: “God blessed me with a bountiful butt”. This year, he popped up in a video walking around Manhattan clad in the smallest pair of pink Timoteo undies I’ve ever seen to promote Daniel Nardicio’s DWorld Underwear Party on Fire Island. A more explicit video was made for the party in Manhattan. Will was cast as a horny and lonely missionary whose neighbors in a sleazy motel include a dozen or so hot underwear models in the midst of a sex party. Of course, Will ends up the centerpiece – much like that old video of Kevin Williams on the Lazy Susan! What could he do to top that (so to speak)? Finally show all, which he did in some new nude shots with porn star Benjamin Godfre. Why? Who knows? Allegedly, Will is still in a long distance relationship with former porn pup Mason Star, but as someone who has been in a few of those, I wouldn’t read too much into it. Instead, just check out the pretty pics of his penis on my site.
When I can segue from hot priests to reality stars in the missionary position, it’s definitely time to end yet another column. I think this might be the first time nude priests have been featured on www.BillyMasters.com – the site that is always interested in what you think. In fact, if there’s something you’d like me to look into, drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com“>Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Kathy Griffin stars in a remake of “I Dream Of Jeannie”! Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
