Hollywood Inside and Out

The big story I’ve been researching for a few weeks is about a gay p-rn star who was blackmailing a former “client”. The p-rn star in question is Teofil Brank, whose film name is Jarec Wentworth. Allegedly, Brank was threatening to disclose damaging information about hisHI-3015_Teofil wealthy client. On February 16 and 17, the client wired him $500K and gave him his Audi R8 worth $180K. But that wasn’t enough for Brank. Oh no, he got greedy. On March 3, he sent more demands via text message. “I want a condo here in LA. Bachelor pad. You have a taste I like. 2 bed Max. Prefer one [He’s not THAT greedy]. I want 300,000 cash.” Then he dropped the condo idea. He’d settle for $1 million in cash and the car’s title.

At that point, the victim went to the FBI – accompanied by an attorney. A sting was setup where Brank was going to meet the guy at The Grove to pick up the cash and the title. Then the place was changed to a Starbucks in El Segundo…much more discrete. And that’s when FBI agents arrested him. The feds noticed someone watching from a Ford hatchback. That was Etienne Yim, a friend that Brank asked for a ride (because, apparently, he didn’t want to bring the Audi to El Segundo). Brank also asked Yim to bring along a gun – a loaded.357 Magnum with six extra rounds of ammunition. Once the FBI found that, Yim sang like a canary. He told them where the Audi was parked, where Brank had deposited the money, and about their plan to fly to Europe. Brank has been denied bail and is considered a flight risk – even though all his money and accounts have been seized. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison. On the positive side, he might find his soul mate. Or at the very least, his cell mate.

In an interesting twist, Brank’s lawyer pointed out that the “victim” may have had sexual encounters with underage individuals, which would be a criminal act. In one of his text messages, Brank refers to procuring boys for the “victim”. Given these circumstances, the judge ruled that the man could be identified publicly. Alas, he’s not a famous actor or a billionaire with name recognition. He’s Donald Burns, co -founder and chairman of MagicJack. Although Don appears to have a significant other, he’s also been seen squiring Sean Cody model Ashton. The twosome have been photographed at some pretty high profile (and HI-3015_Michaelprivate) events. While this story continues to develop, you can check out the boys in question on BillyMasters.com.

Michael Sam has been doing double duty – appearing on “Dancing with the Stars” and training for the NFL Veteran Combine. Alas, he didn’t get any offers out of the combine, but all is not lost. The Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League think they have a shot at signing him. Because when I think of great football teams, I think of the Gentille Alouettes.

Speaking of parties, everyone always asks me where the next big party is. That would be Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party April 24-27 in Palm Springs – the party where I inaugurated interviewing the fit and fabulous on the white carpet. Check out JeffreySanker.com for more details. Although I won’t be in Palm Springs, I will make it to Orlando June 2-8 for Gay Days and the 25th anniversary of One Magical Weekend. You can find info at GayDays.com and at OneMagicalWeekend.com. Next on my dance card is the 4th of July in Provincetown. As always, the Crown & Anchor has a full slate of Independence 2015 events. Tix and info can be found at OnlyAtTheCrown.com.

Fasten your seatbelts – it’s time for another installment of Fayewatch. In news I can hardly HI-3015_Fayebelieve, it’s been announced that Faye Dunaway is writing a book about her experiences making “Mommie Dearest”! Yes, she’s now going to cash in on the movie that she claims ruined her career and is the bane of her existence. I was sure this had to be an April Fool’s joke – because you know what a scamp Faye is. But this appears to be legit – she’s signed a deal with Dey Street Books. I’ll believe it when I see it…

Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Randall in Dallas: “I discovered ‘Empire’ because of you. I read online that there are nude photos of Jussie Smollett. True? He’s so hot.”

There are indeed. Back in 2010, Jussie was making the transition from child star and nude photos somehow surfaced. At the time, nobody paid much attention to them – although they were certainly memorable. You see, Jussie is….how shall we say it….hung like a tyrannosaurus rex! And his a– ain’t so bad, either. You can check out every inch – and we’re talking double digits here – at BillyMasters.com.

When Jussie could have a hit singing about his own “Anaconda”, it’s definitely time to end yet another column. Like that infamous pizzeria, I am happy to serve anyone and everyone at www.BillyMasters.com, the site that doesn’t discriminate. But if a group I wasn’t so fond of wanted me to cover its event, I’d probably demure….unless there was a big check attached. Yes, like that p-rn star/hooker, I can be bought. If you’d like to find out how much it would cost, write to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before MagicJack merges with FleshJack! So, until next time, remember one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
