Cutie’s ally spreads nasty gossip against sweetie
What do they have against Saccharine Sweetheart? A nasty scandal made the rounds recently.
According to the scuttlebutt, SS is not so pristine, after all. That SS got knocked up. The coauthor, of course, is SS’ partner, Charming Cutie.
Alas, a mole insists that it’s CC’s Nosy Ally who has been spreading the unsavory rumor.
Turns out NA hates SS with a passion. That’s why NA has initiated a demolition job against SS. Perhaps NA is merely looking after CC’s best interests.
After all, it’s about time for CC to fly solo…
Dressed to shrill
Dazed Coworkers are having a tough time with Stylish Star.
DCs kept asking SS to dress down for Beleaguered Project. It makes sense because the DCs want SS to come across as approachable and neighborly.
Instead, SS insists on looking like a million bucks on the set.
SS kept sashaying around like the Queen of Sheba, wearing couture outfits and brandishing expensive totes and trinkets.
DCs are exasperated.
Seems SS is auditioning for a different role. As future first lady?
Quid pro quo
Seasoned Thespian should really be discreet next time.
ST has been posting rather incriminating photos online.
Clueless ST has been sharing pics with Showbiz Insiders—partying, hobnobbing, painting the town red, black and blue.
Well, the SIs are the same decision-makers behind ST’s latest achievement. Inquiring minds might ask the inevitable query: Was all that merry-making payment for services rendered?
Quid pro quo.
Kibitzers think this union is on the verge of a meltdown.
Grizzled Gigolo has been mooching off Scintillating Spouse for years.
No longer a spring chicken, SS is forced to burn both sides of the candle—to fulfill the unreasonable demands of GG, who wants to live like a gazillionaire.
Unfortunately, GG wasn’t born with a trust fund. GG doesn’t even have the smarts to make it big in business. All of GG’s pricey ventures have floundered so far.
GG is a loafer. GG’s only talent is freeloading.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Furious Producers swear never to hire Finicky Entertainer again.
FE is a world-class snob.
FPs kept inviting FE to break bread with the rest of the team. FE declined each and every time.
Worse, FE was hardly punctual and arrived late at the event. FE also refused to meet with the fans who had parted with hard-earned money to support the venture.
To top it off, FE ignored colleagues throughout the gig.
FE needs to take a crash course on PR, pronto.
Top of the tabloids
