Handsome hunk wants to be ‘secretary’ of foreign affairsBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Does Handsome Hunk secretly wish to be the “secretary” of foreign affairs someday?
He asked his handlers to set up a “meeting” with Visiting Actor from abroad.
Why? Seems previous attempts to cook up a project with another Foreign Cutie fell through.
FC is as big a superstar as VA in the same region. Apparently, HH has an appetite for things spicy and exotic.
Powerful Personality was invited to a high-profile industry event. But PP was in no mood to hobnob with colleagues.
Turned out, PP was smarting from a heartbreaking dilemma. A mole says PP had just called it quits with Longtime Partner.
PP could no longer ignore LP’s indiscretions, especially since the latest paramour was a co-worker.
Was PP depressed because LP fell for a mere factotum?
Whispers in the corridors of power are getting louder. Can Big Boss continue to overlook Controversial Personality’s wanton spending?
Colleagues are upset that CP was charging millions for a project that hardly made a dent in the industry.
Moreover, other projects were stalled because of budget constraints. No wonder colleagues hate CP; they lost promised jobs.
Worse, CP is bringing in Troubled Insider from Rival Company, plus Eager Wannabe, who is willing to spend moolah to attain fame.
Closeted Personality is eyeing Persistent Hunk. PH would do anything to become popular and CP would not think twice about exploiting this.
PH should proceed with caution though, because the last Promising Cutie who got involved with CP disappeared without a trace.
PC’s career went south the minute CP entered the picture. Is CP’s promise of stardom a virtual kiss of death?
BB, what a big surprise
A reader wonders if newlyweds Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi obtained a marriage license prior to the surprise ceremony on Thursday.
The bride’s manager, Dolor Guevarra, says the couple complied with legal requirements before tying the knot in front of an associate justice of the Court of Appeals.
So, how was that a big surprise then?
A bigger shocker was BB Gandanghari’s explanation of why she was not invited: “It was a family affair.”
Did BB mean it was because she was a Kapatid and not a Kapamilya?
(BB was formerly known as Rustom Padilla, whose marriage to Carmina was annulled a decade ago.)
