Glamorous stars compare notes about past lovesBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Stars’ true colors emerge when they forget that they’re wearing lapel mikes.
While killing time on the set, Glamorous Star kept yakking with her gal pal, Sexy Starlet. Funny thing was, they were still wearing their mikes.
GS and SS started gossiping about past boyfriends as though they were in the dressing room. The girls went into the gory details—going as far as comparing, uh, “notes.” Yes, that kind.
The guys in the control booth couldn’t stop giggling.
Show in danger
Popular Program is in danger of getting axed.
Is that why one of its Controversial Mainstays left in a huff—like a rat abandoning a sinking ship? Hmm, perhaps.
Are the bosses just waiting for Intriguing Starlet to go on vacation before making it official? Because timing is everything at this point, that would allow IS a graceful exit.
Cast and crew alike were never fond of Show biz Insider.
Whenever other people chatted about religion on the set, SI butted in, deriding their beliefs and cracking that they should be worshipping the devil instead.
They would then cross themselves, silently praying that SI was joking. But SI was almost always dead serious.
When SI had to leave the project, coworkers heaved a sigh of relief, freed from a very toxic colleague.
Beautiful Starlet could’ve zoomed straight to the top. Alas, a lousy attitude derailed her progress.
Coworkers complain that BS is a prima donna and refuse to work with her and her Overbearing Manager. Both act like spoiled brats on the set.
Perhaps noticing that her projects were becoming infrequent, BS tried to mend her ways. But it could be a case of too late the heroine.
Although Aging Hunk claims that Gay Benefactor was a lover, a reliable mole insists that the rumor is only half-true.
GB had invited AH to a “getting-to-know-you” date, much like an audition. As was his practice, GB asked AH to strip on this very first encounter—checking out the merchandise, of course.
Unimpressed, GB asked AH to act as a “procurer” instead and to introduce him to other so-called “professionals” in Show Town.
Top of the talk shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Kathryn Bernardo’s first impression of love teammate Daniel Padilla: “Mayabang na playboy—ganun! Outside niya lang ’yung parang maangas, pero kapag nakilala mo siya, super bait, super gentleman.” (Even Superman has an alter ego.)
Kathryn on Daniel’s looks: “Basta may something sa kanya … malakas ’yung dating niya.” (Signal No. 3 o Intensity 7 kaya?)
Daniel, asked if the sweetness between him and Kathryn is just for show: “Ayoko po ’yung makapag-promo lang. Talagang si Kathryn po’y gusto ko talaga. Kumbaga, kung tratuhin ko si Kathryn, isang prinsesa talaga.” (Hello, Uncle Robin, is that you?)
Sen. Chiz Escudero on rumors linking him to Heart Evangelista: “There’s nothing really at this point. We’ve met on several occasions. The conversations were good.” (Sounds like an academic pursuit.)
Carla Abellana on her relationship with Geoff Eigenmann: “We are going strong, we are very happy, we continue to love and take good care of each other.” (And we are so green.)
Iza Calzado on what’s more important between winning an acting award and having a high-rating show: “Both are important, but of course, if you give a good performance, then you could win an award; then you could have good ratings.” (Then you could give good answers like this one.)
Richard Yap, asked if he’s getting used to his newfound fame: “You just need to get used to people wanting to take pictures with you. It’s not easy for me because I’m shy.” (It will come.)
Kylie Padilla on being single: “Puwede palang maging masaya nang single.” (Yes, girl. No one is born already with a boyfriend.)
Ara Mina on rumored boyfriend Patrick Meneses: “Eto lang yata ’yung pinakilala ko na walang nasabi ang nanay ko.” (Wala namang sore throat si mother?)
Rachelle Ann Go on being linked to Aljur Abrenica: “Para po siyang baby brother ko, eh. At hello, ate niya ’ko!” (Stranger things have happened, actually.)
Jasmine Curtis-Smith on doing a duet with big sis Anne: “Naku, baka ’di tumigil ang bagyo! We all sing, but we can’t sing!” (Honesty is the best policy, as they say.)
Pokwang on allegedly being haunted by her dead son’s spirit: “Sana hindi siya ’yun kasi gusto ko happy na siya … siguro gusto niya munang siguraduhin na OK kami.” (Moms are never scared.)
Carl Guevarra, asked if he’s courting Kris Bernal: “Actually, nililigawan ko na siya, eh. Binibigyan ko siya ng flowers … masaya!” (Masaya rin kaya si Kris sa … flowers lang?)
Lara Quigaman, asked how many kids she wants: “Twelve … minus 10!” (Ano ’to, math quiz?)
Sid Lucero on being linked to Heart Evangelista: “Wow, I can’t believe sinasabi ko ’to ngayon … We’re just friends. Show biz na show biz!” (Let us say it for you, too—show biz na show biz!)
