Scandalous star wins some, loses a lot moreBy Entertainment Staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Lady Luck isn’t always on Controversial Celebrity’s side.
ON A trip abroad, CC won big in a casino—a mind-boggling P24 million.
CC thought the winning streak would continue back home. From the airport, upon his return, CC went straight to a nearby casino, where he played for three nights in a row. His fortune spectacularly reversed, CC lost a whopping P120M!
The obscenely devastating loss traumatized CC who now refuses to go near gambling joints.
Revealing baby pics
Scandalous Personality knocked up Pretty Starlet. SP asked Bosom Buddy to take the fall and shack up with PS.
To hush them up, SP gave PS and her parents pieces of expensive real estate property here and abroad. BB was undoubtedly well-compensated for his troubles, too.
But as SP and PS’ Love Child grows up, the web of lies begins to unravel. A spy says recent photos reveal that PS’ baby uncannily resembles SP.
Worse, PS had another child with BB and the kid looks … not at all like LC!
If Promising Actor has been missing in action of late, it’s because he has finally agreed to go to rehab.
PA spiraled out of control and lost almost everything. Fortunately, family and friends intervened. PA gave up a sanctified project, among other blessings, to focus on his own well-being.
PA is in a facility somewhere in Tagaytay. His supporters hope he could beat his demons at last.
Heard on the Radyo Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.):
Acclaimed Performer is renowned internationally, but seems unloved in the country. AP is not that popular among neighbors in a condominium building, either.
Turns out, AP rehearses early in the morning—powerful vocalization echoing through the entire floor because of paper-thin walls.
Alas, most of AP’s neighbors are sleep-deprived call center agents.
Picked up from the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
A former beauty titlist, Veteran Actress is admired for wisely handling her finances, unlike her peers.
The secret of VA’s success is her thrifty ways. She is dubbed Miss Stingy by vendors in a famous bazaar. VA would haggle incessantly, asking for ludicrous discounts.
A mole once witnessed VA offering P60 for an item that costs P200.
VA usually brings home a few measly items from those shopping expeditions.
Charice on top
Filipino singer Charice landed on top of the list of the website Autostraddle’s “105 Hotties You Will Like Who Also Like Girls.”
The list includes famously and proudly “out” personalities like singers Tracy Chapman (No. 72) and Meshell Ndegeocello (No. 4), “Today” anchor Jenna Wolfe (No. 35), model Amanda Moore (No. 28), football player Jessica Landstrom (No. 32) and actress Zoe Saldana (No. 38).
Two other Filipinos on the lineup are actress Monique Wilson (No. 61) and reality show star Divine Maitland Smith (No. 9).
Said Charice of being No. 1 on the list: “I am just thrilled about the news. It makes me feel more accepted, more loved. I’m thankful. It makes me feel more committed to my work.”
