Willam's Beatdown: CANCELLED

Everything is ruined forever, friends: First we lose Happy Endings, then Smash, and now it looks like we’re losing Willam’s Beatdown. It’s like the universe is out to remove everything perfect from this world.

For the past five months, NewNowNext spokeswhore Willam Belli has been hosting her own web-commentary series on The Stylish, reading trolls as they give makeup tutorials, get their first Brazilian, make a turban out of pantyhose, and generally act a fool. (Well somebody had to school these children!)

But last night Willam posted on Facebook that Beatdown‘s announced hiatus may be permanent:

“My beatdown statement: Willam’s Beatdown, which was my original idea, was on a YouTube-sponsored channel that shut down after YouTube failed to renew funding. It was run by Magical Elves, a highly respected production company in LA. I was told it would be a 3 week hiatus but logistics, travel, wheat allergies and an unwillingness to compromise are preventing that.

Until I do more or Beatdown finds a home, please rewatch them and keep the suggestions coming.”

Here’s a suggestion: Someone give Willam a bucketload of money to do more episodes! Or get on YouTube to start funding it again. Or get Willam a gig filling in on Tosh.0.

I'm going to end up making such a fool out of myself without my Queen teaching me how to be better (through the faults of others) every week.

I've been sharing it with all my friends and family because I love it so much. My Dad is in love with it. SO SAD.

that's so QT with your dad
r4wrdinosaur 28th-May-2013 10:54 pm (UTC)
He's adorable. At first he just did. not. get. it. But now he's all over it, and has incorporated some drag slang into his lingo. He's so hip and cool now! :P
pikapika217 28th-May-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)

I want the opposite of this!

now this is a kickstarter i would donate to if it happens tbh
r4wrdinosaur 28th-May-2013 10:55 pm (UTC)
Agreed. I'd gladly donate to him!
lastshotringing 30th-May-2013 02:11 am (UTC)
Agreed with this. Willam, if you're still lurking -- make it happen!
teasacular 28th-May-2013 10:54 pm (UTC)
NOOOOO !!!!!!!
littlebones 28th-May-2013 10:54 pm (UTC)
i'm not sure i understand why he can't just start up his own channel and post the videos there?
noapologiesx 28th-May-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
He probably COULD do it himself, but it would require a crew and resources and idk if he has the desire to assemble all of that himself. plus I'm pretty sure willam doesn't do anything unless he's being paid for it.
whitegirlthin 29th-May-2013 01:28 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think Willam has said that he ONLY does drag when he's getting paid for it
kiki3291 28th-May-2013 11:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, he could probably do it himself but Youtube produced channels offer all the equipment, graphics department, etc and funds which makes it that much easier to upload videos. It's a different story when you have to do it all yourself.

time for Latrice's Beatdown

Totally here for her. Willam just seemed really cruel at times and it came off as more bitchy than sassy.
whitegirlthin 29th-May-2013 01:34 am (UTC)
True. Plus, I can't imagine Latrice ever being cruel/mean to others in s hurtful way. I don't I've ever heard Latrice say something negative or mean about anyone.
no_idts 29th-May-2013 04:50 am (UTC)
Plus the humor got really fucking offensive at times and not in a funny way.
lala_vava 28th-May-2013 11:22 pm (UTC)
ravens beatdown tbh only she'll actually beat people up
robintheshrew 29th-May-2013 01:00 am (UTC)
I would watch the fuck out of that

K. Can we get more info on Alyssa Edwards' show now?

whitegirlthin 29th-May-2013 01:32 am (UTC)
I remember Michelle Visage laughing at the rumors/widespread belief that Alyssa is indeed getting her own show on one of the Elimination Lunch eps. I think she said that it was only a suggestion, and not an actual set deal...

Who else saw that??

buzz_whistle 29th-May-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
Omg wut. I'm not okay with this...

lady_lockhart 29th-May-2013 01:51 am (UTC)

Michelle is prob just jealous she didn't get offered her own show first.

I think the show is happening, but whether it actually gets picked up idk.
melissa_ivory 29th-May-2013 04:37 am (UTC)
If Alyssa gets her show, Logo should give Willam a show too.

Also, I saw this guy on the bus who kind of looked like Alyssa and I was just in awe.
