Hollywood banner“In truth, no one wants to see my pale little chicken legs sprawled out on some shag carpet.” – Anderson Cooper shoots down reports that he was asked to pose nude for Playgirl.  The only thing that surprises me about this quote is the thought that Anderson has a shag carpet (I always pictured it to be more of a snow white Berber – to match the drapes, naturally).

I’m sure I’m not the only one who laughs when Barbara Walters mispronounces a name or treats Whoopi like she’s really Miss Celie.  But I’m gonna miss that crazy…

“In truth, no one wants to see my pale little chicken legs sprawled out on some shag carpet.” – Anderson Cooper shoots down reports that he was asked to pose nude for Playgirl.  The only thing that surprises me about this quote is the thought that Anderson has a shag carpet (I always pictured it to be more of a snow white Berber – to match the drapes, naturally).

I’m sure I’m not the only one who laughs when Barbara Walters mispronounces a name or treats Whoopi like she’s really Miss Celie.  But I’m gonna miss that crazy 83-year-old lady when she’s gone – and that could be any day now.  Last week, she landed in the hospital after tripping inside the residence of the British Ambassador in Washington, DC.  I dunno what was worse: falling at a party full of people, or knowing that you’d miss the inauguration (the first she’s missed since Lincoln).  Although she didn’t break a hip, she did require stitches in her forehead, a stay in a hospital, and a week away from “The View”.  Make that two weeks…and counting.

Remember when I told you that hunky Scott Evans (the gay brother of the even hunkier Chris Evans) was arrested for attempting to buy a controlled substance from an undercover cop?  Turns out that he was trying to buy cocaine and was arrested.  Although he originally pled not guilty, a deal was in place by the time he was in front of a judge.  In return for pleading no contest, he was sentenced to attend 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings.  And if he completes all of the meetings within 6 months, the entire case will be thrown out.

At least he’s also working.  You might have seen Evans last week when he turned up again on “White Collar” to tangle with Matthew Bomer – someone who has more jobs than he knows what to do with.  Bomer just filmed a sci-fi dramedy called “Space Station 76” which was directed and written by our bon ami Jack Plotnick and co-stars Jerry O’Connell and Liv Tyler.  And, while Matt didn’t get to play “Superman” on the big screen, he is the voice of the Man of Steel in the animated feature “Superman: Unbound”.   In addition to all that, this summer he’ll be filming the HBO film version of “The Normal Heart”.  Coincidentally, he just played Andrew Rannells’ ex-boyfriend on Ryan Murphy’s sitcom “The New Normal”.  So I guess coming out really didn’t hurt his career.  Although it could be argued he’s mostly playing gay…and for Ryan Murphy!

Another gay actor who’s mighty busy is Sean Hayes.  In addition to being an executive producer of “Hot in Cleveland”, he’ll also turn up on “Smash” where he’ll star alongside Megan Hilty in “Liaisons” – a musical version of “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” (we have the photos of them in costume on BillyMasters.com).  And it looks like we may see him in a new sitcom next season.  NBC just picked up his untitled pilot about a single gay dad trying to raise the 14-year-old daughter he just met.  And if that’s not enough, he’s also starring in a film version of the play “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” opposite Gena Rowlands.

Bradley Cooper revealed that his date for the Academy Awards will be his mom, who was also with him when he learned of his nomination – how Anthony Perkins of him.  Since I don’t want him to leave the Oscars empty handed, I’m going to go bestow on him the Kevin Spacey Award for Best Escort to an Awards Show.

Zac Efron has landed in the middle of a sex scandal – kinda.  It all started in NYC where he’s shooting a new movie called “Are We Officially Dating” – and if you have to ask, you’re not.  A scene was being shot at Fantasy World, a sex shop in the Village.  A shadowing paparazzo snapped Zac admiring various dildos.  When Efron realized what happened, he allegedly yelled “Cut” and made a mad dash to beg the pap to delete the photos, claiming it would ruin his image.  I think he crossed that line when Nicole Kidman peed on him!

Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Jeremy in Baltimore: “You seem to always know about English hunks.  Who is the rugby player who is also an underwear model?  I just saw pics of him – he’s amazing!”

I suspect you’re talking about the almost unbearably hot Thom Evans, who has had quite a diverse career indeed.  In addition to playing rugby (which ended three years ago on my birthday), he also was part of a short-lived British boyband, Twen2y4Se7en (yes, that’s how they spelled it – amazing they didn’t make it).  This underwear campaign has certainly raised the profile of the 27-year-old hunk.  It’s also raised some eyebrows – well, I think they were eyebrows – when it was revealed that the D. Hedral line includes their special “Leon” briefs.  These undies are designed to “boost” men’s bottoms with special Anglefit technology – or, as some call it, “bum enhancing technology”.  Of course, Thom’s bum doesn’t need much help, as we saw when he posed au naturel with his equally-hunky rugby-playing brother, Max Evans, for the “Dieux du Stade” calendar.  Happily, we have nude photos of them both – along with video from the shoot – on our very own BillyMasters.com.

When Barbara Walters could sue ABC for elder abuse, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  Is Barbara losing it?  Is it time to retire?  Who knows – but every time she pats Whoopi on the head and calls her “My Whoopi”, I wonder if she dozed off during the civil rights movement.  You certainly won’t miss any big news like that on www.BillyMasters.com – the site that’s not only au naturel but also au courant.  If you want us to look into something, send a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com“>Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Whoopi bakes Babs a chocolate pie!  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
