From here to enmity
RushesBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Look who’s playing the you’re-fired-no-I-quit game! Remember Glib Personality, who picked a fight with the show’s crew?
GP gave the bosses an ultimatum: “It’s me or them!”
Guess whose side the execs took? So now GP is moving to another company, a spy told us with certainty.
Is GP nursing a grudge against Former Coworkers? The defeated star has denied the rumor in public.
Those in the know sense enmity, however. GP let true feeling slip
recently, berating one of the FCs on air, “in jest.”
Lovely but lazy
According to a Radyo Inquirer mole, Glamorous Celeb accepted a high-profile project set in a posh, faraway resort.
When GC arrived at the venue, she slipped into a bikini and went to worship the sun, leaving put-upon assistant to do all the hard work.
GC’s laziness didn’t escape the eagle-eyed clients, who were promptly infuriated. They swore never again to hire GC.
The assistant likewise left in a huff.
GC lost no time in phoning cohorts to badmouth the erstwhile employee, though the poor lackey had served her like a slave.
How long will Chatty Star get away with murder? CS is consistently and woefully unprepared for every project.
She never does her homework and seems content to wing it each time, mostly reading from the cue boards.
Once, CS bungled a colleague’s intro.
Another time, on a different show, CS asked famous Foreign Guest a stupid question that elicited a blank stare. It was a faux pas that could have been averted with a few minutes of research.
As coup de grace, still on the same show, CS absent-mindedly asked about a newcomer’s relative who, even the viewers knew, had passed away!
This one should befriend the research department, pronto. Or, actually, just pay attention.
From Radio Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.):
Seasoned Hunk was the butt of jokes during a recent splashy event.
SH proudly showed off his bod but failed to make the gals and gays swoon. They were turned off instead.
No longer a spring chicken, SH looked too pumped up for his own good. Fellow Grizzled Stud pointed out: SH has been abusing steroids for ages.
Sadly, SH thinks he’s still desirable when, in truth, he looks like Incredible Hulk minus the green complexion.
From the Inquirer tabloid
Why has Loathed Star incurred the ire of Show biz Insiders? There seems to be a concerted hate campaign against LS.
SIs insist that LS is not liked by colleagues. One SI witnessed how LS bullied Modest Thespian in public with a scolding that was passed off as a joke (but obviously out of bitterness and spite).
Was that because LS once lost to MT in a competition?
Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Ryan Agoncillo on guesting in “My Husband’s Lover”: “Basta huwag silang pipikit baka hindi nila ako makita. Sobrang bilis lang ng partisipasyon ko. I hope I’ll get accepted by the followers of ‘My Husband’s Lover.’” (Well, you know where they’re at.)
Marian Rivera on why traveling with boyfriend Dingdong Dantes is important: “Para sa ’kin importante dahil sobrang busy ni Dong. Dahil sa bonding namin, nag-a-abroad kami, at least kahit papaano napupunan ang mga oras na busy siya.” (Get her drift? We don’t.)
Marian, describing Dingdong as a boyfriend: “[Siya] ’yung tipo na pag karelasyon mo, hindi lang siya boyfriend, iga-guide ka niya sa mga dapat mong gawin… kung ano ang tama.” (Sounds like the whole package.)
Chris Tiu on his recent wedding to Clarisse Ong: “Hindi mo pa rin ma-describe ang feeling, ang tuwa, yung ligaya mo na ito na iyon. You’re gonna spend the rest of your life together. She looked gorgeous and beautiful, the perfect bride! (Congratulations!)
Chris on why their relationship lasted: “We have the same upbringing. Our families are both conservative, very big on values and ang tagal na naming magkakilala. Ever since, ’yung mga kapatid niya, parang mga kapatid ko na rin. We spend a lot of time together.” (You could probably write a manual. And why not, indeed?!)
Chris on the number of children he wants: “Kung ano ang ibigay ni Lord. We are both devout Catholics. We see children as blessings from God. The more the merrier, but of course, you have to be practical also. One step at a time. Isa-isa lang.” (Couldn’t gather your thoughts on that, huh? We understand.)
Chris on the perception that they kept their wedding secret: “Hindi naman itinago; wala lang nagtanong [until] after na. Our families are very private. We didn’t want a spectacle.” (Your life, your rules.)
Claudine Barretto on her former personal assistant’s theft complaint against her: “Nagsisinungaling siya. Ayoko na lang siyang patulan. Magsama na lang sila ni Gretchen (Claudine’s sister) sa kulungan.” (Whoa!)
Claudine on Gretchen’s alleged involvement in the filing of the theft case: “Nakakalungkot. Syempre nakakaawa. Nakakalungkot kasi ginagamit siya ng kapatid ko….” (Yikes! This is getting nastier by the day.)
Claudine on whether she thought it was really Gretchen who initiated the filing of the complaint: “Ewan ko. Hindi ko alam. Nababaliw na ata siya.” (Pot, meet kettle.)
Claudine, on whether she could forgive Gretchen if the latter apologized: “Oo naman, oo naman. Iyon lang naman ang inaantay ko.”(This could take a while.)
Megan Young on returning from London after winning Miss World: “Nakaka-overwhelm ’yung feeling na pabalik na ako sa amin, balik-Pinas.” (And thank you for being the first bit of good news we’ve had in a while.)
