Scandalous celeb confronts controversial personalityBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Apart from a well-publicized skirmish, another confrontation occurred during a recent high-profile industry gathering.
Controversial Personality was sitting quietly in a corner. From out of nowhere, Scandalous Celebrity went up to CP, dishing out a disturbing question: “Tell me the truth. Are you still hooked on drugs?”
CP was too stunned to respond. Was SC that bold because she is the current pet of the Powers-That-Be in the studio, while CP has fallen out of grace?
Years ago, CP scared the living daylights out of SC when they butted heads.
CP did the confronting, while SC was uncharacteristically speechless.
In the same show biz event, Character Actress and Veteran Performer were chatting in the dining area.
A stranger approached their table and sat beside CA.
The intruder, however, kept calling CA by VP’s name.
As coup de grace, the uninvited guest brazenly asked for money from CA, who reluctantly shelled out cash.
Till the end of the evening, the beggar was still thanking VP for the generous “donation.”
Promising Performer is in a quandary. She has received several awards in the industry, but is gravely insecure about a certain body part.
PP is constantly criticized for a rather prominent nose. In close-ups, the nose tends to hog the limelight and distract viewers from her performance.
Distraught, PP once asked a shocked insider: “Will a nose job help me go further in my career?”
La Streisand would beg to disagree.
Hunky Actor has likewise scored a prestigious acting award in his young career.
But HA is unhappy and blames his management team—or, as he calls them, “the mismanagement team.”
HA is rebelling by accepting projects that are daring and out-of-the-box.
Moreover, HA has made it known that he’s willing to bare all in gay films. It’s because HA once gave up a prime project that won his Talented Replacement a major acting trophy.
Poor, harassed production staffers are reluctant to work with Show biz Insider.
It’s because SI has a mean temper. Turned out, even veteran actors are scared of SI.
SI apparently didn’t spare Major Celeb from trauma. Well, SI could very well be the nation’s biggest Horror Star.

Pakiusap ni Alma Moreno sa misis ni Vandolph: ’Wag siyang iiwan!’ (Why would she do that without provocation?)
