Secret gay affair is going strong
Against all odds, and in spite of the naysayers, Affable Dude’s affair with Successful Jouster is going strong, thank you.
AD almost got in trouble for hooking up with SJ. According to the grapevine, the bosses didn’t approve of the dangerous liaison.
Well, AD fought tooth and nail for this seemingly doomed gay relationship.
Many said this was just a passing fancy. Alas, they proved all their critics wrong. Through the storms (and other catastrophes, man-made and natural), AD and SJ have remained steadfast. Applause! Applause!
Seems the movement against sexual misconduct has finally reached our shores.
Past victims are now rising up against various predators, including Persistent Felon. There is talk in the circuit that this serial molester, whose accusers are a legion, will soon be in hot water.
The plaintiffs claim that they found themselves woozy (and violated) after only a casual encounter with this local clone of Harvey Weinstein.
Survivors are reportedly banding together to put an end to these abuses.
Now that the crap is about to hit the fan, the supposed “friends” of this repeat offender will find themselves under the glare of the spotlight, as well.
That’s bad news for the enablers whose livelihood depends on positive public perception.
Will Malevolent Benefactor weather this tempest? Will MB cut ties with this controversial figure, once and for all?
Unfortunately, Pugnacious Gangmate was also duped into consorting with this scandal magnet. Will PG do the right thing and side with the exploited?
Speaking of industry misdeeds. Raucous Tyro went berserk over a petty issue.
RT didn’t relish Former Ally’s pronouncements about past misdemeanors. RT was livid.
To think, it was FA who should raise hell.
RT’s team apparently filched FA’s secret weapon and tried to replicate past successes. Needless to say, it was a miserable failure.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
They may look sweet and courteous, but wholesome youngsters are spoiled brats.
Major Luminary now refuses to hire Fair Belle and Kinetic Charmer. Even Industry Veteran loathes to work with the two.
FB and KC are allegedly difficult on the set. So young and nasty! ML and IV were turned off big time by the dastardly duo’s impossible demands.
As if they were huge stars already! Well, their beleaguered venture went belly up.
Top of show biz news
For those who missed last weekend’s show biz news on TV (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Robin Padilla on rumors that he used his connection to President Duterte to get nephew Mark Anthony Fernandez out of jail: “Hindi siya nagsabi na, ‘Tulungan mo ako, Tito Robin.’ Dapat ’yung mga natutunan natin sa Bilibid, eh huwag nating kalimutan.” (Moving on.)
Coco Martin on being one of the creative heads of “Ang Probinsyano”: “Napakaraming nangyayari sa ’ting bansa. Masarap silang i-tackle … sa soap opera.” (OK, fine …)

Kris Aquino, asked if she and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista will stay just friends for good: “Hindi ko talaga kayang sagutin. Tinitimpla ko, kasi it will haunt me!” (Like a ghost?)
