Grown kids abandon ailing entertainerBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
An appeal to aid Ailing Entertainer has been making the rounds online. Apparently AE’s loved ones are not willing to help in settling mounting medical bills.
A family squabble pushed the children, now grown-up, to turn their backs on AE.
A Loyal Colleague is now asking the relatives (and the public) to help AE in this time of need.
LC exhorted the kids to “forgive and forget.” After all, they are in a position to be magnanimous as they’ve been financially blessed.
Online reports are persistent. Matinee Idol was seen seated beside Sultry Starlet on a plane bound for Hong Kong.
Then again, the handlers of MI and SS could only be fanning the flames because of a new project.
Curiously, Glamorous Beauty, MI’s ex-lover, has been sighted with SS’ former beau.
What could they be concocting… uh, promoting? Hmmm.
Very public outing
Seems Closeted Celeb is now ready to face the music. And in a very public way at that.
CC was caught making out with Hunky Model in the coffee shop of a posh hotel. They couldn’t get their hands off each other, according to scuttlebutt, and fellow diners muttered, “Get a room.”
CC’s High-flying Mom would rather have the not-so-secretive sweethearts keep a low profile, however.
Cute Newbie struck out in wooing Gorgeous Starlet.
CN gifted GS with a designer tote, but the girl was unimpressed. CN got the message and turned his attention to GS’ screen rival, Pretty Ingénue.
A mole says CN gave PI a bottle of expensive fragrance. Looks like PI is more willing to entertain CN.
Character actor Lou Veloso, who’s among the few local thespians cast in the Hollywood flick “The Bourne Legacy,” fell off the stage while rehearsing the Tanghalang Pilipino play “Walang Sugat” recently.
Doctors told Veloso that he had suffered fractured ribs, but would recover after three days of rest.
He doesn’t have to quit the play, though, because rehearsals have also been halted. “Because of the weather, not because of me,” Veloso told Rushes.
Soon after the mishap, Veloso was up and about because of rising floodwaters in his Sta. Ana, Manila, neighborhood. “Luckily, my home was spared,” he said.
NEW YORK—Lady Gaga is one of the most visible celebrities in the world, but she says not everything she does is documented.
In the September issue of Vogue magazine, Gaga, 26, says she likes to “feel a little irresponsible and act like I’m 19.” She goes on to admit she even manages to “roll into a bar” and dance topless or have sex on the beach without getting recognized.
The singer credits friends for helping her not get caught by paparazzi.
The story is in Vogue’s 120th anniversary issue and the magazine’s largest yet. AP
