GRACE Lee: Too early to say ...

Controversial Personality’s problems never end. After a series of unfortunate events, CP is in trouble again. According to online buzz, bosses are investigating employees’ complaints against CP.

Coworkers suspect CP of bugging their cell phones using a certain computer software. Should Former Lover change phones and passwords now?

CP, who’s been rebuffed by the public for such shenanigans, just never learns.

Natural woman

Pretty Starlet vehemently denies she underwent a series of cosmetic procedures.

But insiders claim that PS, who vanished from the scene for a while, has become slimmer, and her nose perkier.

Supporters insist PS is all-natural, that she just had a minor mishap that resulted in a quick trip to the hospital.

Right. She’s as natural as Nicki Minaj’s hair color.

More artificial beauties

Biz Insider is aghast that three successful singers have gone under the knife, potentially harming their golden pipes.

LOVI Poe: Single and very happy.

Apart from rigorous skin-whitening treatments, Popular Celeb had a nip here and a tuck there, too. PC reportedly had her chin and cheeks enhanced and her nose trimmed as well.

BI asked: Does PC still recognize the stranger in the mirror?

Meanwhile, like Pretty Chanteuse, Upstart Performer obviously gorged on glutathione.

Cautionary tale

These makeover-addicted celebrities should take heed of High-Profile Personality’s harrowing experiences.

In spite of incessant denials, HP seems to have survived a cosmetic surgery gone awry, but one that left her with a distorted face. Poor HP now looks like a melting wax figure, says a source.

In one photo, HP is seen obviously shielding the evidence. Another snapshot seems Photoshopped. A digitally altered family photo is one sure sign of trouble.

Power play

There are incessant rumors that Industry Leader is slowly being eased out of power.

GERALD Anderson: “Sobrang” Sarah

Certain forces are allegedly working against IL. No wonder IL has been quite visible of late—ostensibly, to defuse opponents’ attempts.

At least three Influential Personalities are reportedly behind the maneuvers. One of the IPs was unmasked recently, confirming that, indeed, something was simmering in IL’s little corner of the world.

Starstruck at Super Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS—The Super Bowl has attracted so many stars to the city that even The Fray admits to being a little starstruck. The band performed at the National Football League’s official party at Lucas Oil Stadium ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Days before the big game, lead singer Isaac Slade said they were in a restaurant with “Glee’s” Matthew Morrison, then another VIP walked by—NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Later, they saw Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Slade said, “It’s been surreal, it’s kind of an ‘SNL (Saturday Night Live)’ skit.” AP

US actors, German award

BERLIN—US actors Scarlett Johansson and Denzel Washington have received Germany’s most prestigious film award as best international actors.

Johansson, 27, said she was grateful that her work was also appreciated abroad as she received the Golden Camera Award late Saturday.

Actor Morgan Freeman was awarded a trophy for lifetime achievement, which the 74-year-old called “a great honor.”

DENNIS Trillo: Here we go again.

The 47th ceremony of the Golden Camera Awards was held in German publishing house Axel Springer’s Berlin headquarters. AP

Top of the Talk Shows

For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

Grace Lee, on the possibility of a romantic relationship with P-Noy: “We’re getting to know each other … I wouldn’t waste the President’s time if I didn’t enjoy his company. But it’s too early to say where this is going.” (Of course it is.)

Dennis Trillo on his relationship with Bianca King: “Nandun pa rin kami sa stage na getting to know [each other]. Wala namang nagmamadali sa ’min. Ini-enjoy namin ’yung oras namin pareho. Dahan-dahan lang. Hinay-hinay lang.” (Parang ganyan ang sagot ng lahat ng mag-on.)

Nadia Montenegro on her biggest regret: “Signing up my daughters with [Annabelle Rama] … Kailangang pagbayaran niya lahat ng pinagsasabi niyang paninira sa mga anak ko.” (Parang reality show.)

Vic Sotto on why Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola are well-loved by the masses: “Marunong silang makibagay, makisama … nararamdaman ’yun ng mga tao na binibisita nila sa mga  barangay …”

(’Di tulad ng maraming iba d’yan …)

Gerald Anderson on how special Sarah Geronimo is to him: “Sobra. Sobrang special. Sobrang bait niya.” (Hindi ba masama ang sobra?)

Sarah Geronimo on the possibility of going out on a Valentine’s date with Gerald Anderson: “May trabaho yata si Gerald sa 14. Pero titingnan natin. Kung libre po ako, at libre naman po siya, tingnan natin kung pwede.”  (Sobrang kilig!)

Phil Younghusband on his relationship with Angel Locsin: “’Di ko alam ’yung title or pangalan ng status. Pero alam ko, we’re in love. And sobrang masaya.” (Eto pa isa, sobra rin.)

Lovie Poe, asked if she’s single: “Yes, I’m single. I’m very happy now kasi grabe ’yung focus ko sa trabaho ko ngayon. Walang distractions. Ayoko na muna mag-isip ng ibang bagay.” (Grabe, sobrang sipag!)

KC Concepcion, asked if she’ll do more sexy photo shoots in the future: “It depends. Hindi naman ’yun para magpa-sexy lang, eh. Siyempre maganda ’yung may pinanggagalingan.” (That’s a yes.)

KC Concepcion on hooking up with half-sister Cloie Syquia recently: “Nagtinginan kaming dalawa. Parang nag-freeze  ’yung time! Parang movie … Slow motion … takbuhan kaming dalawa. Tapos yakap, iyak … ’Yung naramdaman mo talaga na parang kulang na lang, we grew up with the same mom.” (Parang reality show din!)

Cloie Syquia, asked about her father Gabby Concepcion: “I haven’t talked to him since I was about 2 [years old] … of course I want to meet him when the time is right. And I look forward to that moment.” (Of course you do.)

Ogie Alcasid on Regine Velasquez’s postpartum depression: “You just have to be there for your wife … Lunukin mo na lang ’yung pride mo. Sorry ka, gusto mong magka-anak.” (Good answer.)
