Torn between two starlets, phantom of the ‘operada’By the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Remember matinee idol, who was caught by a shutterbug holding hands with Stunning Starlet other than his Screen Partner?
Seems MI is flaunting his affair with SS in spite of the studio’s plans to build him up with SP.
Curiously, SS has moved to MI’s home studio.
Now that they are no longer attached to rival companies, can SS and MI come clean?
Did MI’s manager have anything to do with SS’ big move? Will SS and MI become a couple onscreen as well?
What will happen to SP? Will SP be given a different leading man? Or will SS be cast as the contravida in MI and SP’s projects?
It’s hardly surprising that SP and SS aren’t buddies in real life.
Phantom of the ‘operada’
It’s not the first time that a handsome guy was duped by a beautiful stranger. Reality Hunk was reportedly hoodwinked into a relationship with Pretty Transsexual.
RH went to great lengths to deny it.
Now, RH’s fellow graduate on the same talent search, Popular Star, is being rumored to have fallen for the charms of Ravishing Transgender.
PS and RT met at a bar and, after some heavy flirting, they purportedly indulged in a night of passion.
RT, however, now avoids PS for fear that the guy may discover “her” secret.
In their rush to drumbeat the indie project of Fading Hunk, his handlers made a major booboo.
In a story that came out online, drumbeaters tripped all over themselves praising FH’s performance.
But the “praise” release failed to mention the name of the Poor Director behind the “acclaimed” project.
Did the indie project direct itself?
Shock of recognition
Upon reading the “Studio Rigodon” story in Rushes, Showbiz Insider did a double take.
Did SI recognize one of the personalities in the blind item—or feel alluded to?
Is this confirmation of what transpired behind-the-scenes? Did SI almost fall prey to Industry Veteran who is notorious as a scandal magnet and, a mole claims, as a wheeler and dealer?
True to form, SI remained unruffled in spite of the workplace intrigues.
Top Insider, who figured in another Rushes item, finally came out of her shell and graced an industry shindig after snubbing a recent high-profile event.
TI was reportedly hurting over a devastating heartbreak. When TI finally turned up, observers were stunned.
TI looked svelte and striking. Totally none the worse for wear. Truly, in the face of betrayal, the best revenge is a makeover.
Top of the Bandera
The top show biz news in the Inquirer tabloid Bandera (and why we are moved if we are moved):

Maja umamin na sa “kissing scandal” nila ni Piolo sa kotse. (Uh.)
Mega, Nora lalayasan ang TV5, babalik sa ABS. (We’ll believe it when they’re back there.)

Nagkasakit ng “traumatic stress disorder,” tinitirhang bahay sa US malas daw; DJ Mo minumulto, ayaw patahimikin ng abortion issue. (Ayaw din niyang tumahimik.)

Naloka si Bea Alonzo nang ikuwento ng direktor; Zanjoe naghubo’t hubad sa harap ni Angel, ayaw mag-plaster sa ‘pototoy.’ (Well, if you have something to brag about.)
