Traumatized hunk turns to boys


MARIAN Rivera gets flak for charity works.

Show biz insider had a couple of high-profile romances in the past.

Separated from first partner, SI got involved with Colorful Performer but the affair ended in heartbreak. SI was next linked to Visiting Starlet, who is notorious for tawdry gimmicks.

The relationship quickly went pfft.

Seemingly traumatized by these entanglements, SI has reportedly sworn off women and turned to a fellow hunk, good-looking Gifted Entertainer, for solace. They are often seen in public together these days. Apparently, SI is quite proud of their budding romance.

Playing favorites

Many are wondering why Distressed Star has become Powerful Insider’s new favorite. DS is often included in PI’s projects.

CESAR Montano and Sunshine Cruz (in a 2007 photo): He still wants to reconcile with her. AUGUST DE LA CRUZ

According to a mole, PI wants to make up for an unfortunate incident that left DS jobless in the past.

DS was sacked after a misunderstanding involving Handsome Hunk.

The bosses sided with HH, but PI knew that DS was not entirely to blame. Thus, PI has been making sure to hire DS in potentially lucrative ventures.

Drag addict

Pretty Starlet should make certain that nothing is missing from her closet, now that she’s dating Influential Beau.

A spy insists that IB, as a college student, had a fondness for dressing up … in drag. Was it just a phase?

IB and pals cross-dressed for laughs, sure, but witnesses are sure IB enjoyed himself “too much.” Hopefully, he has outgrown his penchant for cosmetics, stilettos and mini-skirts.

Snobbish hunk

KATRINA Halili’s beau wants another baby.

Heard on the Radio Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.).

Since arriving from abroad, Hot Hunk has gained a slew of admirers with his good looks and athletic prowess.

At a splashy event, HH was mobbed by giddy fans, gays and girls alike, who requested souvenir shots with him.

The groupies got the shock of their lives because HH just stared at them and rudely walked out. (Dude, you lost not a few followers for sure.)

Forbidden affair

Picked up from the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

Sweet Actress often plays maudlin martyrs onscreen. In real life, SA plays underdog to the hilt as well. Turns out, SA is not so innocent.

SA hooked up with Married Guy. Concerned Friend tried to intervene, but SA refused to give up the man. Worse, SA and her family ganged up on CF who was going steady with SA’s Cute Sibling. CF and CS eventually broke up.

JULIA Montes causes a ruckus in a mall.

Top of the Bandera

The top show biz news in the Inquirer tabloid Bandera (and why we are moved, if we are moved.)

Piolo, Gerald walang arte sa sex; Shaina game na game rin sa kama. (Whoa! Ah, sa movie pala!)

Kahit inakusahang umbagero at rapist, Cesar gusto pa ring makipagbalikan kay Sunshine. (Afraid. For whom? We’re not saying.)

Kawawa sina Sabina at Santino sa mala-soap opera na bangayan ng kanilang magulang. (Ah, precious hindsight.)

Fans nina Dennis at Tom tinarayan si Marian, masyado raw mayabang. (Di kaya mainitin lang ang ulo these days?)

Mark na-trauma, ayaw nang balikan si Ynna Asistio. (Not with the whole world watching.)

Gagawin ko ang lahat para maging mabuting asawa kay Kim at best tatay sa mga anak namin! – Jericho. (Hala, plural agad.)

Kahit hindi siya ang tatay, Coco binigyan ng P200,000 ang panganay na anak ni Katherine. (Look, is that a queue forming?)

Kaplastikan daw ang pagtulong ni Marian sa mga batang may sakit. (Wala namang basagan ng trip.)

JC de Vera: Wala naman akong balak ahasin si Maja kay Gerald! (And we should care because … ?)

Gwardyado pa ng inang si Inday Barretto sa ginanap na court hearing; Claudine walang ginawa kundi mag-iiyak; Gretchen tiyak magmamaasim na naman. (For sure!)

Katrina gusto uling buntisin ni Kris Lawrence pero ayaw pang pakasal. (For sure?)

Julia, Enchong, Enrique nambulabog sa mall; 50 security guard naalarma. (For real?)

    Marian Rivera doing really, really bad things again? You know it gets to be really very fishy and suspicious. The bashers are busy again against her because she renewed her contract. Proof that this is an intentional invented issue to discredit her, try posting comments of support to the showbiz blog that first published this blind item, your comments will not be published! Only negative and seething comments against Marian are published, to make it appear that a lot of people really believe it’s true and that many people really hate Marian. The more you create lies about Marian, the more people relate to her because people love underdogs and bullied personalities. I heard her FB fan page now gets new 100,000 likes per month and now nearing 3 million.

      Fashion Pulis blog yun. Taga ABS-CBN ang bading na writer na sumulat ng blind item (na give away na give away naman) na naninira kay Yan. Wag na tayong magtaka mga Marianites. Umeeepal lang mga yun la namang mangyari. Ika nga ni Guest, nice try!

      • gr8_light

        Mas madami daw kasi reporters and photographers sa charity events ni Marian while kay Angel konti lang ang dumating, kaya sinisisi si Marian haha. Pathetic.

      • fuctore

        Bakit mo naman isinama sa issue si Angel Locsin?
        Si Angel ba ang nagbalita sa inquirer?

  • Guest

    So Marian Rivera again in these rumors that have no basis? C’mon, we love Marian Rivera, Marian’s career is already immune to these demolition jobs and the people’s bleh to this already. Isip pa rin kayo ng mas kapani-paniwala.

  • Guest

    A celebrity doing a charity work and get flak for it? People are so malicious nowadays. I pity Marian.

  • Guest

    I also tried commenting to that dubious blog where this vicious blind item against Marian was first published to no avail! Yup, only the nega comments are published by that malicious blogger! You know what, Marian Rivera will continue to get more and more popular, nice try!

    Why can’t you leave Marian Rivera alone? She goes to charity events, sya pa pala ang masama? What’s next, she visits a cancer patient, the patient dies( God forbids) and it’s her fault? OMG, these people can’t get enough of her. Get over it, Marian is here, and she is here to stay. Manny P. even had dinner with her to get her for TV5 to no avail.

    Her GMA management loves her so much they made the contract renewal signing a big event with all the executives present and they called her the Queen of GMA. She has a new EDSA billboard, she has new magazine covers, new photo campaign for Karimadon, and new TVC for TNT. I guess the detractors are still grating with this and they have to work double-time to destroy her again.

    We love Marian Rivera so much here in Cebu and we really came in droves last night, grabe ang crowd! Only Marian can pull off that enormous, shrieking crowd!

    • Guest

      What I meant was Davao, grabe puyat sa Kadayawan, jet lag pa from the States, sarap dito sa Pinas, balik US uli next week.

  • Guest

    Makakarma din yang mga nagkakalat ng kasinungalingan kay Marian!

  • takeno12

    Yung mga sarili ninyong ‘retort’ sa mga items ninyo ay very juvenile, amateurish at ludicrous. Hindi angkop para sa Inquirer.
    For example yung item kay J.C. de Vera ang pasaring ninyo: “And we should care because…?” Kailangan pa ba yun? Tama ba yun para sa level ng Inquirer?!
    Kayong mga entertainment writers ng Inquirer- nag-aral ba kayo ng mass com kaya? O nag-aral ba kayo period?

    • andresa igbac

      ahhh ummm…kaya nga nasa entertainment page ang section na eto eh. wag masyado serious!!!!!!!!!

    These false stories about Marian Rivera remind me of those stories on famous celebrities like Lady Gaga having a dick, Miley Cyrus in car crash, and Jackie Chan killed in a stunt. Really fantastic! Last month they said she is pregnant, the week before that, she snubbed an old woman in Cebu.

    I do know that one group of people are making these stories and they are making her very, very popular. In the said charity event, these detractors didn’t like it that there were so many reporters and photographers while Angel’s charity events had very little. Is it Marian Rivera’s fault to be mobbed by photographers? The charity events are Marian’s ideas but its her fans who organized it so she had no hand in the presence of photographers. Marian is now the Most Trending/Most Searched in 2013 in Google, she is also known in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaysia so please give her the respect of balanced journalism.

      Wow, kailangan talaga I mention si Angel Locsin anoh?
      Ano ba kinalaman ni Angel Locsin sa issue ke Marian?

  • fuctore

    I think the issue on Marian’s failed attempt to visit those cancer patients sprung from a written report telling that Marian did not show up because no media reporters were there to cover the story.
    True or not, that will depend on what side of the spectrum you belong.
