Savage Lust + Trump Wants Death Penalty (I Would've Been Satisifed With Prison, But Let Him Have It!) + Christmas Carol + Spacey Seeking Treatment + Brazile Trashes Hillary + Rose Marie's Must-See Doc — 6-PACK! Comments (0)

Terry-Miller11-534x780Dan Savage has been trashed by some in the gay community over issues of race, so it's maybe a little daring for his boyfriend, Terry Miller, to pose for literal re-creations of classic Tom of Finland BDSM images that were very racially driven to begin with.

Some of the shots work, some don't. Terry's got the body of death, that's for sure.

Keep reading for more of that deadly body, plus Trump's terror-ifying folly, a Carol Burnett ornament, Kevin Spacey's new treatment, Donna Brazile twisting the knife in Hillary and a rave review of a doc about a 94-year-old showbiz legend ...

The family-values Republican is accused of taking a 17-year-old male to a hotel room for some pot smoking and “sexual stuff.”

They Had This Time (52 Years!) Together Comments (0)

My friend Bob Deutsch has the best celebrity-encounter stories ever, even better because his took place from the early '60s through the early '80s. He always had a special attachment to Carol Burnett, taking her picture many times on the street and at various shows, and even being asked into her apartment once to gift her with some baby items right after she had given birth.

As he explains above, when he was invited to go backstage last night in NYC at Carol's one-woman show (I saw it again—still great! Plus she sang a few bars of her theme song at the end and talked about her Twilight Zone), he was able to get a photo with her 52 years after the last one.

I love stuff like this, and I think Carol Burnett has to be the most accommodating and fan-friendliest celebrity ever, no? Then again, Bob's such a mensch I can't really imagine any star turning him down.

Feeling The Burn: A One-Night Stand With Carol Burnett Comments (0)

Months ago, I bought my mom and I tickets to see Carol Burnett's latest show, a traveling Q&A about her life and career aimed at plugging her upcoming book, In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox (Crown Archetype, September 2016). It was as much a gift to myself as it was to her, and the event ensured I'd visit more than just at Christmas for a change.

Having parted with my original tickets (to my good buddy Shaun and his partner and a mutual friend) in favor of reasonably priced front-row (!) seats, we sat waiting for Carol to emerge, just like we had waited for her show to begin each week over 40 years ago. This time, we were side-by-side. Back then, I was usually at the end of my parents' bed, or even hidden at the foot of it (if I wasn't supposed to be up), where I would sometimes fall asleep and trip my dad in the middle of the night.

I once wrote Carol to tell her it was her fault I didn't have more brothers and sisters, because my parents were too engrossed in her show. I also wrote her to ask her to contribute a one-word description of Madonna for my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, a request you might think someone of her generation would ignore or even find annoying. Instead, Carol was the very first star to reply—with a handwritten note, no less. Her word? TALENTED!, with the exclamation point.

Now, waiting for Carol to come on, the man we sat next to kept asking me, “Are you excited?” I think he was using me to talk to himself. He also wanted to compare ticket prices, as older men love to do.

What I paid was more than worth it.
