Big studios dance dizzying ‘rigodon’ at top execs’ levelBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Two stations are experiencing dizzying reshuffles in the top-executive levels.
A mole tells Rushes that Big Studio’s Trusted Lieutenant, second-in-command in a profitable division, had resigned because of very personal reasons.
Taking over TL’s post is High-Profile Insider who has been linked with some of BS’ more controversial projects.
In Distressed Studio, High-Ranking Exec almost flew the coop. The flight was happily prevented.
A source surmised that DS’ aborted departure could’ve been sparked by the apparent takeover of Powerful Personality of a post held by Important Colleague. Will PP succeed in dislodging IC?
Troubled Child of Colorful Celebrity was caught shoplifting in a suburban store.
Perhaps TC was acting up because of CC’s downward spiral. CC is hooked on all sorts of vices—leaving poor TC and Disturbed Sibling to fend for themselves.
It must be genetic. DS had a close brush with the law recently.
Longtime Friend of the family could only sigh: “What a pity; TC was such a sweet and caring child.” With a parent like CC, TC was probably doomed from the start.
Flirting with the enemy
Since Handsome Hunk’s attempt to join Fledgling Studio didn’t work, the enterprising lad is setting his sights elsewhere. He is said to have sent feelers to Current Home’s Fierce Rival.
HH invited Male Starlets of FR to a night of booze and bonding. Spotted in the drinking session was Talented Performer, long rumored to be in an intense “bromance” with HH.
Did HH really want to be seen cavorting with the enemy?
Usually Unflappable Celebrity was stunned to learn that Cute Hunk fell victim to Influential Insider as well.
Apart from hooking up with Powerful Gay, CH also gave in to II’s indecent proposal—after which CH bagged a highly publicized project.
According to another spy, II, PG and Conniving Cohort have made it clear among macho wannabes: “If you want to make it, you’d better cooperate.”
Talented Newcomer is wondering why Veteran Personality has been relentlessly dishing out criticisms.
VP claims that TN, who failed to appear in a certain project, has become swell-headed. TN insists it was just a scheduling mix-up.
Fast-rising Commentator has come to TN’s defense.
Interestingly, FC is with a studio that competes with VP’s channel.
Was TN caught in the network wars? Well, TN went on to appear in VP’s project in the end.
