Only hunks will doBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Showbiz Insider requires that only handsome hunks be assigned to him.
On the set of SI’s projects, only cute cameramen, utility men and other production workers can hope to be hired.
As luck would have it, management made the mistake of sending Chubby Staffer to work in one of SI’s projects.
Just one look at the pleasantly plump one and SI threw a diva tantrum, demanding a gym-fit replacement.
Offended, CS complained to authorities and SI was sharply reprimanded.
SI’s case is reminiscent of Wealthy Benefactor’s. Closeted Interviewer was invited to sit down with WB at the latter’s well-appointed office.
CI noticed that the staff in WB’s inner sanctum consisted of gorgeous males. CI was very distracted, indeed.
While Channing Tatum doesn’t seem to mind gabbing about his former job as “exotic” dancer, local stars tend to be secretive about their sordid past.
Indie Actor was a macho dancer before he was discovered and launched in an internationally acclaimed film.
Is this the reason why IA avoids encounters with the press like the plague?
Veteran Actor also worked in a gay bar, as guest relations officer. Of course, VA made it a point to erase this bit of info in his resumé.
After all, he has gone a long way from that seedy club—and was even elected to public office once.
Acclaimed Performer was shocked by the behavior of an international production’s Tyrannical Director.
TD was a slave driver, according to a spy: “Once TD refused to give cast and crew a meal break, until the ‘take’ was just perfect. By the time we were allowed to eat, the food was spoiled.”
Not a few staffers quit because of TD’s hissy fits.
TD was also guilty of child abuse—bullying an under-aged co-star so that the kid would perform better.
How tweet it is
ABS-CBN discovery Neri Naig met and fell in love with rocker Chito Miranda of Parokya ni Edgar on the social networking site Twitter.
“We started exchanging messages on Twitter,” she recalled. “Then we decided to meet.”
Neri said she was comfortable about the eyeball because Angel Locsin was a common friend. Neri may have turned to Angel, in fact, to learn some things about her new Tweetheart.
Neri is reluctant to let her beau watch her latest film, Alou Adlawan’s Cinemalaya entry, “Ang Katiwala.” She explained: “I play a slum dweller in the film and my character has a dirty mouth. But I’m proud that I did it. I love indie movies because I get to play roles that I don’t get in the mainstream.”
Popular personalities from the top FM stations will be today’s anchors for the 2012 Manila Bay Cleanup Run, which will be joined by entertainers and other celebrities.
Employees and Operation Tulong volunteers from dzRH— flagship station of Manila Broadcasting Company, which is organizing the event, will be in full force as the nation’s oldest network marks its 73rd anniversary.
Simultaneously, dzRH will mount a nationwide medical-dental mission in 30 cities across the country, plus one at the Star City Complex.
The run is expected to draw about 5,000 participants.
