Handsome Hunk has always projected a rich playboy image. After all, he’s supposedly from a well-off clan from the province. Alas, Rich Relative, a closet gay, revealed to a mole that HH wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

“He is a poor relation,” RR scoffed, an eyebrow raised. Was that why HH had landed in the casting couch?

Should HH be blamed for wanting to keep up with affluent relatives? a spy asked… or could RR be sour-graping, envious of HH’s good fortune?

Upwardly mobile hunk

Upwardly mobile actor, Cute Hunk, also hit the jackpot by becoming chummy with Influential Gay.

During a recent visit, CH confided the secret of his success to former Gay Benefactor: “I followed your advice, saved millions in the bank. I bought several vehicles, too.”

Was he able to bail out Beloved Relative from a huge mess?

Missing in action

Veteran Actress was excited to work recently with Award-winning Star who championed a project.

VA was flabbergasted to learn that the project had been shelved indefinitely. She soon learned that AS had simply vanished, leaving the crew in a quandary.

Thorny triangle

Playboy Politico is caught in another thorny romance with Sultry Starlet, though he is supposedly loyal to Long-Suffering Love.

It’s not the first time; LL has simply learned to ignore PP’s indiscretions, but the rumors are getting too persistent.

Will SS prove to be the final straw for LL? Is PP the reason that SS’ career is zooming to the stratosphere?

Gay hunt

Aspiring Actor has been parrying indecent proposals left and right, according to drumbeaters, since his scorching photos came out online.

Mole claims AA is from a prominent family in the North and has no need to entertain such offers.
