“I don’t want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous. If we’re naked in the scene, then I’m naked. I’ve always been that way. I’ve got nothing to hide.” – Alexander Skarsgard tells “Rolling Stone” why he won’t wear the traditional “sock” when doing nude scenes. So I guess I shouldn’t have turned down that visit to the set of “True Blood.”

The summer may be coming to an end, but some of us are trying to squeeze in some last minute fun in the sun. While I was cavorting with some celebs in Provincetown, Lance Bass was having some drama at the Bridgehampton Polo Club. Lance originally Tweeted: “Wow! Some woman security guard took my drink and threw my drink on me and sai ‘get the f–k out’ I’m so confused why that just happened!” I’m confused what “sai” means. An incident with a drink did happen, but onlookers say the drink was spilled when security was attempting to wrestle it out of Lance’s death grip. Yet another insider claims that Bass somehow wandered out of the VIP area and ran into trouble when he tried to get back in – with drink in hand. Who knows what really happened, but there is a positive side to the story. Security had four cops escort Lance from the premises – maybe some body cavities got searched. Hey, it was Saturday night and Lance may or may not have been drunk around guys with handcuffs and nightsticks. Sounds like a party to moi!

 

Across the sea, George Michael was in Highbury Corner Magistrates Court pleading guilty to driving under the influence and being in possession of marijuana at the time of his car crash on July 4th. In addition to losing his license for six months, the judge said, “I make it clear the options in respect of sentence remain open, including the power to imprison.” Don’t threaten him with a good time, your honor! Just to be on the safe side, we hear Georgie’s planning a pre-emptive rehab stint.

 

Elsewhere in the British Isles, John Barrowman had everyone in a tizzy. He advertised a garage sale at his home in Wales with flyers that said, “Everything Must Go – Spread the Word.” With news that “Torchwood” would begin shooting new episodes in the US under a new moniker, most people assumed the Glasgow-born but US-raised actor was leaving the UK permanently. “I’m just a regular citizen holding a normal garage sale to clear out a load of old junk and raise money for charity,” he said. Perhaps, but most citizens don’t include antique furniture and a Peugeot! Barrowman was on hand all day while buyers and fans crowded the grounds. He would sign anything…for an additional fee, of course.

 

“Jersey Shore” mania is infiltrating network television with “The Situation” competing for the mirror ball trophy on “Dancing with the Stars” (he’s never met a mirror he didn’t like). Allegedly, his income in 2010 will top $5 million, which I believe may be one of the first signs of the Apocalypse (look it up, I’m sure it’s in the Bible). Part of that income will come from his upcoming DVD “The Situation Workout – Get Ripped in 5 10-Minute Sets.” He’s also writing a book – a novelty for someone who I’m not sure ever read a book – and he’ll be pocketing $400K to be the spokesman for Devotion vodka, a beverage that swears it increases lean body mass because it contains a clear protein liquid. I’d happily endorse a milky protein liquid, but no one is knocking on my door!

 

A couple of months ago, I received this “Ask Billy” from Frank in Colorado: “Whatever happened to that cop from Florida who was on a design show and did gay porn? I remember he was hot, but don’t know how it worked out.”

 

The guy in question is sexy Michael Verdugo, who was on HGTV’s “Design Star” back in 2008 and who also did a gay porn video back in 1996 (of it, he says, “It was all role-playing bondage. I was tied. I used handcuffs later on in my career”). Obviously my Florida fans know all about Mikey. When news of his porn past was revealed, he was fired from the Hollywood, Florida Police Department. But not for doing porn per se. They canned him “for not disclosing previous employment” on his application. Verdugo claims he never considered doing a porn as “previous employment.” Apparently the Florida Department of Law Enforcement agreed with him and ruled that the appropriate punishment for not disclosing previous employment – regardless of its nature – is one year probation and taking a state-approved ethics-training class. That’s one hurdle. Next up for Verdugo is a Broward Circuit Court date in November to try and get his old job back. For more on this story (including photos and videos), head to BillyMasters.com

 

Could it be that one of the more venerable relationships in Hollywood and points south has hit the skids? True enough – the partnership has been dissolved and while the public may focus on the star leaving the boardroom, the golden boy has been moved out of the bedroom. Or bedrooms in this case (the pitfalls of being so international). I’m told the lord of the rings was very direct about the split. No big song and dance. No other party involved (except that ever-present wife). The liaison had simply run its course. It could have been ugly, but the youngster has been through this before. He’s a foxy fella and like most Sicilians, he’ll land on his feet (or his back).

 

When I can present a blind item with such panache, it’s definitely time to end yet another column. With summer coming to an abrupt end, I’m headed back to SoFla for a couple weeks. So if you see me out and about, say hi. Then it’s back to the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown. And if it’s glitz and glamour you’re looking for, look no further than BillyMasters.com. If I can provide any service to you, feel free to drop a note to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before the Hollywood, Florida Police uses “Rope Rituals” as a training film! Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
