Billy Bush -- Mono-a-Womano at Miss USA

4/22/2009 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you thought Billy Bush was infectious as the host of the Miss USA pageant, there's a reason -- he had mono.

Bush dropped the info on his Twitter page yesterday -- "Health has been off the last 2 wks. Tests are back. I have mono."

Billy Bush
On a related note -- Billy planted a kiss on Miss Universe's face during the show. Miss U then kissed his co-host Nadine Velazquez ... who then kissed Miss West Virgina.

TMZ spoke to a rep for Miss Universe just a few minutes ago, who told us Miss U "feels fine ... no mono-like symptoms." We're trying to get in touch with the rest of the exposed ...

Mono, known as the kissing disease, can be spread by saliva, sharing drinks, kissing or even just being close when the person coughs or sneezes.

Doctors pretty much say that by the time you realize you have mono it isn't even contagious anymore so it's possible that everyone will be fine.

Very easy to spread. My daughter was 4 years old when she had mono.

I really don't get it. We all bi*ch and moan, constantantly telling each other about our freedom of speech. Then the one time someone exercises it, you all go bonkers. My question is this. Why is it that homosexuals and people who approve of homosexuality can call us names, bigots, homophobes, e.t.c., and that's alright? But the one time someone has another opinion that is different than yours, you want to take away their freedom of speech. It's as if homosexuals and people who approve of homosexuality (the act) seem to think that all of us should be like-minded. That we should think and act like robots. It reminds me of a now defunct country that was called the USSR. People have different opinions and we should embrace them and listen to them. We might just learn something. In the case of the Beauty Pagent contestant, she believes that God loves all people, homosexuals and all. But that he detests homosexuality (the act). Homosexuals believe that God loves them no matter what they do in the bedroom. Let me tell you what is going to happen: One day, when we die, one of us.....and ONLY ONE of us.........will be proven right. So while you support gay marriage and think that your support is benign, you too might just be surprised when you meet God and his answer to you will be something like, "you would have thought that, huh?" And while you all are so vocal in your support of homosexual marriage you might want to keep this one thought in mind. When you meet God, not one homosexual or lesbian will be standing beside you singing your praises. They are going to be too busy covering their own backsides (no pun intended).
