“This is what I live for, so bring it. This is how I write my act.” – Kathy Griffin answers Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s question on whether the redhead worries about being a guest on “The View” after saying things about the show that are “a) untrue and b) not so funny.” Of course, comedy is subjective and usually the targets are not laughing.

“This is what I live for, so bring it. This is how I write my act.” – Kathy Griffin answers Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s question on whether the redhead worries about being a guest on “The View” after saying things about the show that are “a) untrue and b) not so funny.” Of course, comedy is subjective and usually the targets are not laughing.

With LA Pride 2010 a thing of the past, I zipped back to Boston – a little hoarse, a little congested, but mighty happy. And proud. For the 40th anniversary of LA Pride, our celebrity grand marshalls were Sharon and Kelly Osbourne – certainly no one could argue their support of our community. The Osbournes even got the chance to show how passionate they are about gay rights. Shortly after the parade started, they were heckled by some homophobic twits with some anti-gay signs. Happily, someone made sure that the Osbourne float was equipped with a microphone and sound system. Sharon burst into action and berated the bullies, screaming “You should all be ashamed of yourselves!” Kelly took offense to one picket sign by saying, “My God loves gays!” Then Sharon got the crowd of supporters to chant “God loves gays” over and over. The nasties departed and the Osbournes enjoyed the rest of the day – reminding us all why we love them.

Sexy Ronnie Kroell from the current print edition of “Playgirl” was at the parade and later came by to see me hosting the main stage. He wanted to thank me for publicizing his modeling gig – and his pledge to give a portion of all money he makes from selling autographed copies to local gay charities. I was delighted that he brought a special copy for moi, but even more excited when someone slipped me a special something that I’ll share with you in a future column. Let’s just say it will prove conclusively whether or not Ronnie’s dick was Photoshopped!

While all this was going on in LA, the Tony Awards were happening in NYC – not that anyone was watching. Every year, the question is not “How were the ratings for the Tonys?” it’s “How low were the ratings for the Tonys?” Ratings were down eight percent from last year. It could have been worse (in fact it was – the ratings this year did beat the record lows in 2008). Sean Hayes managed to keep the show moving without any disasters. Kudos to our own Levi Kreis for his win. Three years earlier he appeared at LA Pride. Now he’s got a Tony…and I’m still hosting pride festivals. Sigh…

Combining a bit of skin with theatre, Tony presenter Paula Abdul (huh?) took in the Broadway revival of “Hair.” Why? Because it stars “American Idol” alums Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo (the show closes on June 27th). Since the cast traditionally brings members of the audience onstage during the finale, it wasn’t surprising for Paula to be up dancing without much coaxing. And this gives us the perfect opportunity to respond to the numerous e-mails I’ve received asking if Ace does the nude scene. Come on – do you honestly think Ace Young would pass up an opportunity to be naked? When he first joined the cast, he told everyone how “freeing” he found the nudity. My spies tell me that not only is he free, he’s also hung – so hung that he’s actually swinging during the finale to the first act! Although no full-frontal footage of the abs-olutely fabulous Ace has materialized, we have a number of shots of his delectable torso and his ass. Oh, yes – that ass is something to behold. Those pics will be posted on BillyMasters.com. You might want to keep checking back – never know when something will pop up!

Recently, Ricky Martin was on the cover of the Father’s Day issue of “People en Español.” In the interview, he confirms being in a relationship. The lucky guy is someone Martin knew from his childhood in Puerto Rico, but reconnected with last year in Miami. Ricky was also honored at the AmFAR Inspiration Gala. The event at the New York Public Library was hosted by Kylie Minogue and included entertainment by Cyndi Lauper, Kelly Rowland and Estelle. There were also a gaggle of semi-clothed male models, which made Estelle gasp, “I didn’t know you could get so many abs on a body.”

By the way, one of Ricky’s Menudo co-stars is in the news. Angelo Garcia decided the time was right to also come out of the closet. The skinny little singer is now a hulking, imposing SF-based bodybuilder who has timed his coming out with a nude photo session…and who could blame him? You can see more of him at BillyMasters.com

Lastly, a teen heartthrob was just outed as a lesbian! Last week, there were numerous sightings of Justin Bieber drinking in an Ocean City, Maryland bar. This got people into a tizzy – including one person who called the police to report the 16-year-old was indulging in underage imbibing! The cops showed up only to find the Bieber was actually a 27-year-old woman! When questioned, Katie (who is referred to in all of the stories as a lesbian) laughed saying, “This happens all the time.” Turns out Justin is in the Bahamas with Kim Kardashian. What do you think the chances are that alcohol isn’t involved? Or that a lesbian would be able to show Kim a better time?

When Kathy Griffin pissing off a conservative is news, it’s definitely time to end yet another column. This was a super-sized column, which means our print outlets will only be able to run about half the dish. If you want the full-length version, be sure to check out BillyMasters.com to read every last word for free each and every week. I’m now jetting off to yet another undisclosed Eastern European country for adventures that I’m sure will find their way into future columns. But no matter where I am, I’m only just an e-mail away. Send your questions to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before we get reports of Bieber Fever in Kardashian’s beaver (which I believe can be cured with a combination of Vagisil and Kwell – the guys can swap out the Vagisil for ID Lube)! So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
