"He's not harming anyone wearing a dress. So, if he wants to wear a dress? Awesome. Good on him."Brian Austin Green's refreshing response to people who criticize his 4-year-old son Noah being out in public dressed as female characters such as Elsa in "Frozen" or Snow White. And I agreeit's all fine until he wants to go to school dressed as Maleficent!
Week two of my European adventure, and I've come to a conclusionmost people around the world are nice. In fact, they're nicer than most Americans. Case in pointI was walking down the main street of a big city with a wheeled shoulder bag. Three strangers stopped me at various points to say that the shoulder strap was dragging and getting dirty. In most U.S. cities, you wouldn't get so much as a second look if you were dragging a dead body!
The View hosted a deeply religious enclave to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sister Act. Whoopi Goldberg decided not only to reunite with members of the cast, but also perform with them livefor the first time ever. Kathy Najimy, Beth Fowler and several of the other nuns were on hand ( and in habit ) for a spirited rendition of "I Will Follow Him," accompanied by musical genius Marc Shaiman. Check it out on BillyMasters.com .
Didya know that Sister Act was written as a vehicle for Bette Midler? She was the queen of Disney flicks at the time the film was in development, but was less than enthusiastic when the role was pitched to her. ( She reportedly said, "A singing nun? Me?" ) It was a rare career misstep for the Divine Miss M, but she took a physical misstep last week in the Broadway production of Hello, Dolly! Toward the end of the first act, Bette was standing on a rotating platform when a set came down from the flies and knocked her over! Naturally, Midler tweeted about it: "You may hear I was in a little accident on stage tonight; two set pieces collided, I had to make a run for it, and I fell. But I'm fine." The curtain came down, the situation was rectified, and within 15 minutes the show continued with Bette singing ( appropriately enough ) "Before The Parade Passes By".
I'm sure you've heard that the 2024 Summer Olympics will be held in Paris, and the 2028 Games will take place in Los Angeleslike we don't have enough traffic. But many people are wondering if the Olympics have lost some of the luster. Attendance for the past few Olympics have been disappointing, and even TV viewership has lagged. Sam Mikulak, Team USA's all-around gymnastic champ, has the perfect idea for turning things aroundlet the athletes compete shirtless! He said, "People make fun of us for wearing tights. But if they saw how yoked we are maybe that would make a difference." He's made this suggestion before, but I've got an even better idea. Let's get back to the Olympics' roots and have the athletes compete as they did in the original gamesnaked!
When you're far from home, you find comfort in the little things. One of those is the glorious morning talk show/webcast of Marissa Jaret Winokur and best buddy Ryan O'Connor. The Morning Mess Live with Marissa and Ryan started with the two of them just chatting on Facebook Live over morning coffee. It's taken off like a juggernaut and is now appointment watching at 9AM PSTwell, if you want to watch it live and join in the fun. Personally, I am still asleep so I catch it later on their Facebook page. Not only are scads of people tuning in every morning, but the regular viewers are a veritable who's who of showbiz. Check it out.
It's time for another season of The X Factor UK. Once again, Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh make the ultimate trio of judges. And, Nicole Scherzinger is fine. ( She's growing on me. ) While I am typically not a fan of the early audition process, The X Factor does it in a way that is far less exploitative than other shows. But, since we're all for a little bit of exploitation, let's talk about the hot twins from Greece. Phillip and Achilles make up Pretty Boy Karma and, well, they're not particularly talented. But they are kinda hotpicture Justin Bieber with a learning disability ( not much of a stretch ). These twins claim to have started out singing in the showerlet that sink in. They sang terribly, but lifted their shirts and showed off their abs, so they won my vote. Alas, the real judges said no. But they're still worth checking out on BillyMasters.com .
Speaking of hot guys, the acclaimed UK production of A Clockwork Orange has finally made it to New York. This all-male version is opening off-Broadway at the New World Stages on Sept. 25. I heard about this a few months ago from a fan who saw it at the Edinburgh Festival and was taken with the ridiculously hot leading man, Jonno Davies. Davies has been with the show since its origin in Norway, and happily he has crossed the pond with it. The cast is filled with gorgeous guys and is kinda like a live version of Fight Club, where unspeakable things happen to him in the prison shower. But why tell you when you can see it for yourself on BillyMasters.com .
Could it be that a once and future reality star is happy to have bagged that high-profile gig because he needs the dough? Where did his stash go? The same old storydrugs and hookers. Except these were male hookerswith loose lips! His clowning around came to an abrupt halt when he learned how in debt he was. Sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.
When reality stars are treating boys like property, it's definitely time to end yet another column. It's also time for me to prepare for the next stop on my tour, Athensa city so old, I am still considered a veritable child! If I run into any naked Olympians, I'll post photos of them onBillyMasters.com, the site that's all Greek to me! For all your other needs, drop a note to me at BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before I get my hands on Achilles' heel ... or any other part of him! So, until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
