Neophyte star swings both waysBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Call her Swing-out Sister.
Neophyte entertainer is attracted to both men and women. SS has been quite vocal about her designs on Hunky Colleague, but a reliable mole told Rushes that SS once had a same-sex romance.
Spy insisted that, as a kid, SS had a troubled home life. Rebelling as a teen, SS hooked up with a gay woman.
SS need not fret, though, because HC had his own close encounters with the third kind in the past.
Pretty Starlet must be fed up with the incessant calls and reminders from the Influential Mentor of her Cute Partner.
Overbearing IM kept insisting that CP and PS turn their reel romance into a real affair.
PS got turned off big-time, especially since persistent rumors link CP with IM. And before IM could raise a racket, PS found a new Onscreen Beau, leaving CP out in the cold.
There is another kind of meddling third party.
Feisty Mom of Pretty Starlet clearly didn’t approve of her daughter’s Dashing Beau.
FM doesn’t believe her daughter has a future with DM, who is much too childish. FM has her sights on Hunky Actor for PS, instead.
Mom predicts that PS’ career will zoom to the top if she hitches her wagon to fast-rising HA.
Oh, she’s a fortune-teller, too?
Boys on the side
Handsome Hunk has turned to the oldest profession, which is proving to be a lucrative sideline. Unlike other pros who charge in pesos, HH asks to be paid in dollars—possibly because he does this only abroad?
Apparently, his fee—when entertaining rich gays—is roughly $500.
Everyone thought Veteran Hunk had retired from the flesh trade, especially since he now occupies a respectable position in society.
But it’s hard to teach old dogs new tricks, as they say. VH has just found a new steady benefactor in Wealthy Gay.
No wonder VH now looks like a million bucks, always impeccably dressed, often in three-piece suits and smelling of expensive cologne. Credit goes to WG for VH’s makeover.
Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Dingdong Dantes, asked what girlfriend Marian Rivera gave him for his birthday: “Hindi naman kailangan nu’n. Ang importante binigyan niya ako ng oras. Para sa ’kin, kahit anong regalo ’di puwedeng tumbasan ’yun.” (Time is precious, yes, unless this is a euphemism?)
Alyssa Alano’s birthday wish: “Sana ’di na kami bahain!” (You could wish that on everyone, you know.)
Elmo Magalona on his “Just One Summer” costar Julie Anne San Jose: “Sensitive talaga. Mabilis siya maapektuhan.” (But that’s a requirement for actors!)
Zsa Zsa Padilla on shooting “I Doo Bi Doo, Bi Doo” not long after the passing of life partner Dolphy: “Ang show business commitment ’yan, eh … the show must go on.” (Gotta love old school show biz.)
Zsa Zsa on coping with Dolphy’s death: “A lot of people advise me to take it one day at a time kasi iba-iba ’yung mga araw, eh. May mga araw na talagang ni hindi ka iiyak, tapos may mga araw na sobra ang iyak mo … Meron days na in denial talaga ako. Sinasabi ko, ‘Why did you leave me?’” (Or you can look at it another way: He’s there all the time now, and in equal parts as well, for every single loved one.)
Daniel Padilla, asked about Kathryn Bernardo being courted by Dominic Roque: “Wala naman akong magagawa kasi ’di ko naman pag-aari si Kathryn. Nasa kanya naman ’yun kung gusto niya si Dominic o kung sino man. Malulungkot na lang tayo.” (Leave us out of this.)
Vic Sotto, asked if he’s running in the 2013 elections: “Diyan sa Quezon Memorial Circle!” (Sounds like a “no.”)
Lovi Poe on meeting the parents of rumored boyfriend Jake Cuenca: “Yes, nakilala ko lang sila. Ayoko nang magsalita! We’re not actually dating. We are close.” (This line is really old.)
Megan Young, asked if “The Reunion” costar Xian Lim is a “slow kisser”: “OK lang!” (You don’t seem impressed.)
Julia Montes, asked if Enchong Dee has a shot at her: “Boyfriend-material naman siya. May pag-asa!” (Honesty! How refreshing!)
Kean Cipriano, asked if he’s courting Bangs Garcia: “Timing lang ’yan!” (Always.)
