Drag Superstar Willam Belli: "Loud, Bright and Sparkly"
Dennis goes to the Hollywood studio/workspace of drag superstar Willam Belli to discuss his hilarious and informative new book "Suck Less: Where There's a Willam, There's a Way." Willam talks about how the book came about, getting Neil Patrick Harris to write the forward and the one thing his publisher asked him NOT to include in the book. He also talks about his experience on RuPaul's Drag Race, his current relationship with RuPaul and his friendships with a lot of the other queens from the show. Other topics include: working out with Richard Simmons, getting back surgery, saying yes to everything, his dream of hosting a game show, his most surprising fan, being a former fat kid, hooking up with hot dads at a water park, drag discrimination and a Christmas tree made of dildos. www.willambelli.com For an extra episode of Willam answering questions from the Observation Deck, visit the Dennis Anyone?

DENNIS ANYONE? Yes please!
Do you want to know what it's really like to struggle as an artist? Do you have great affection for what you do, know you have the skills, and STILL can't catch a break? Well, take a stool next to Dennis Hensley and marvel at his conversational skills with such wonderful guests as James La Rosa, Willem Belli, Bryan Thompson and Jonathan Tolins. Dennis' travails come through loud and clear. There's a through line here, no matter who is on as his guest, which resonates so deeply with me, and hopefully should for you too. He makes people open up and tell the truth. It's a gift worth celebrating.
