“I believe I can’t get nominated because of my views on gay marriage. I’m in favor of gay rights. I’m in favor of gay marriage. I see it as an issue of equality.” – Rudy Giuliani explains to FOX News why he won’t run for president. I’m not sure if we should get the blame…or the credit.
Like everyone else out there, we have to talk about Caitlyn Jenner. First, I must apologize for telling you Bruce would choose Heather as his female name. Consider me just another in a long string of men Linda Thompson has screwed. As it turns out, Heather really was up for contention. Bruce says, “It’s one of the hardest things in life – choosing your own name.” He liked the names Heather and Cathy but then started thinking about Caitlyn while watching the Miss America Pageant. Jenner’s assistant also mentioned the name Caitlyn, and thus the name was born. By the way, although he considered spelling it with a “K”, he thought that beginning it with a “C” was “the best way to break tradition, and the media associations” that accompanied the Kardashian name.
The media tracked down Jenner’s mother to get her opinion. “It was a wonderful day. It takes so much courage to do what she’s doing. When I first saw her, all I wanted to do was give her a big hug.” Of course, it’s still an adjustment. “It takes some time getting used to. I’ve called her Bruce since the day he was born. It’s going to take some time, but I will adjust. I love her. And she’s happy. That’s all that matters.”
Dennis Rodman thinks he could make Caitlyn happy. Rodman, no stranger to donning a frock, somehow thinks that the two have a connection. And he’s happy how Caitlyn has been treated by the media. “I’m so proud of the fact that people are not really coming down hard on him where he can’t walk around and show his face. That’s the most important thing.” He added, “Bruce, knock yourself out, brother. If you want to go out on a date with me, well, ask me out.” Is that love I smell in the air? Or the faint whiff of desperation?
Something we don’t talk about very much is that prior to the advent of gay marriage, many gay people would adopt their spouses in order to circumvent inheritance laws and also have some legal say in each other’s lives. The most extreme case of this I can think of is famed Italian auteur Franco Zeffirelli, who has two adopted sons who are now his heirs but started out as his romantic partners. Closer to home, a Pennsylvania father and son are dissolving their adoption so that they can marry. The father is 76 years old and the son is 74. “When we moved to Pennsylvania, we had both retired and we were of the age where one begins to do estate planning. We went to a lawyer who told us Pennsylvania was never going to allow same-sex marriage, so the only legal avenue we had in order to be afforded any right was adoption.” They plan to marry as soon as the adoption is dissolved.
Ricky Martin is a single dad. And he’s a single dad with a strong sex drive. So he’s working hard to keep things balanced. “I meet people. I’m fine. I meet very handsome men. I like to have a conversation, looking into someone’s eyes and finding out their sense of humor. I’m not saying you have to be an Adonis, but you have to connect….We’re all men. It’s in our DNA to go for it. But I have two boys and I cannot bring different men every day into my house.” But he would if he could…
Last week, the legendary Jim Bailey passed away. In these days of drag queens having mainstream cache, Jim Bailey was an original. He didn’t need RuPaul to bring him to national prominence – he had someone named Ed Sullivan! This led to appearances on “The Carol Burnett Show”, “The Dean Martin Show”, “The Tonight Show”, and others. Bailey became the characters he portrayed – which included acting in plays and singing live as Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, and others. In fact, he memorably appeared as Judy alongside Liza Minnelli at the Flamingo Hotel in 1973. In 1985, he acted in an episode of “Night Court” playing a transsexual college friend of John Larroquette. He was certainly ahead of his time, and he will be missed.
Speaking of singing duets, Scott Evans recently posted a video of him and his hunky brother Chris Evans singing James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain”. Well, only the beginning of the song….then they dissolved into “giggles” (Scott’s word). You can check out the video at BillyMasters.com.
Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Gareth in London: “Did you hear about footballer [soccer player to us Yanks] Aaron Moody? Pics of his naughty bits are making the rounds. Thoughts? Could that thing be real?”
Aaron Moody is a 19-year-old goalkeeper from Swindon Town Academy and he’s been identified as someone who posts nude photos online under the clever moniker “bigwhitec-ck20”. Well, that ticks all our boxes. I believe the photos are undoctored, which leads me to make an observation you’ll rarely hear me utter – I think he’s actually TOO big! Although the pics have been deleted from most websites, you can see them on www.BillyMasters.com.
When Moody can enter a 3-legged-race, we’ve definitely come to the end of yet another column. Of course, you can read even more gossip (and see more racy photos) on www.BillyMasters.com, the site that has nothing to hide. If you’ve got a question for me, send it off to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Jenner and Rodman’s first date. So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
