Character actress flies high on the setBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Character Actress is a competent professional. But recent rumors paint her as the exact opposite.
In one emotional scene in a popular project, staffers noticed that CA was extra shrill and more hyper than usual.
Her enthusiasm was one decibel higher than the rest of the cast. Colleagues fear it wasn’t a natural high.
Members of the production team also think CA is shedding weight much too swiftly. They suspect that CA is using prohibited drugs known to generate excess energy and rapid weight loss.
It doesn’t help that CA is involved with Senior Actor, who once had a nasty rep as a drug user.
Reporters were exasperated because overzealous bodyguards didn’t allow them to approach Popular Actor.
Naturally, the newshounds raised a fuss. When PA, the unreachable star, noticed the commotion, he admonished the bouncers and told them to relax. The press people thought PA was the good guy.
But one of the security personnel let it slip that it was just a gimmick. Turned out, PA ordered the guards to be strict so he could play hero to the hilt.
An exercise in a team-building workshop required participants to recall their deepest, darkest, most devastating experiences.
Among the celebs in the group were Pretty Starlet and her ex-boyfriend, Neophyte Hunk. After the session, PS was spotted weeping in a corner.
NH was in worse shape, bawling his heart out. As in, wa poise.
Was the breakup that bad?
Heard on the Radyo Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.):
Colleagues are worried about Veteran Performer, who has hit rock bottom and wasn’t exactly shy in blabbing about his woes.
Former Costar didn’t approve of VP’s brazen approach in soliciting aid.
Is that why some friends were avoiding VP? Worse, VP is now ailing, said a mole.
Picked up from the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Upstart Starlet was too haughty (and picky) for her own good.
Big Bosses wanted to cast US as a villainess in a new project. US refused vehemently, insisting that she should play only sweet martyrs onscreen.
BBs banished US to the freezer. She was not given a new project and BBs merely waited for her contract to expire so they could legally dump her.
