GRETCHEN Barretto

SARAH Geronimo

Hell hath no fury like Rich Gay scorned. RG caught Playboy Boyfriend on a date with a nonshow biz girl in a popular watering hole.

Already tipsy to start with, RG went berserk and assaulted the girl, spewing curses while pulling her hair.

RG couldn’t care less that bystanders were taking photos of the altercation.

In the aftermath—not content with the outburst—RG “repossessed” an expensive vehicle that he had given to PB.

RG was overheard saying that he planned to sell the pricey gift pronto.

Dragon breath

GRETCHEN Barretto

Turns out, Outrageous Performer is just as fiery off stage. Reporters who ambushed OP at a recent event regretted that they did.

They had to stand really close to OP, who apparently had a bad case of halitosis. OP is living up to his flamboyant onstage persona, dragon breath and all.

The writers swore never again to get too close and personal with OP.

How on earth did Stunning Starlet survive OP’s toxic breath?! Tic-Tac, anyone?

Brush with infamy

Behind the scenes in a commercial shoot, Gorgeous Starlet was in a foul mood.

GS had a nasty tiff with a makeup artist right before the shoot. In the heat of the moment, GS threw a hairbrush at the poor crew member.

Unfortunately, Top Exec sauntered into the dressing room just as GS was having her meltdown.

JULIA Montes

Dismayed, the client canceled GS’ endorsement deal.

Guess who?

Now they are being built up by their home studio as potential sweethearts.

A few months ago, before the cameras started rolling for their latest project, Beautiful Starlet and Handsome Hunk were not exactly the best of buddies.

Asked about his new screen partner, HH shrugged his shoulders and replied, “Who?”

As Celeste Legaspi once sang, “Kay bilis naman!”

 

Blooming

What’s with Cute Hunk? An insider has noticed that CH is looking more delectable these days.

Apparently a recent breakup did CH a world of good. Was he stressed out by Feisty Girlfriend?

On the other hand, did FG bloom after cutting ties with CH, too?

Separation was better than Botox for this couple.

Sweet Zia

Singer-songwriter Zia Quizon, daughter of Dolphy and Zsa Zsa Padilla, is the latest endorser for the Avon scent Sweet Honesty Moments.

Zia, 21, says she’s “a fan of romance and the kilig (thrilling)  moments that come with it,” and so she and the fragrance are a “perfect match.” She has composed a song for the product that will be included in her coming album and played in all Avon branches beginning on Feb. 1.

Signing up Sarah

Sarah Geronimo has signed a new one-year exclusive contract with ABS-CBN.

Sarah says she’s “super happy” about the deal because “there’s really nowhere I’d rather go.”

The contract covers her weekly musical variety show, “Sarah G. Live,” and either a teleserye or a sitcom.

“My new projects will showcase a new and more mature Sarah,” she said.

 

Top of the talk shows

GLAIZA de Castro

For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

Glaiza de Castro on being romantically linked to Dennis Trillo: “’Di naman natin mapipigilan kung ano ’yung iniisip ng tao at kung ano ’yung sinasabi nila. Pero alam naman namin sa sarili namin na wala talaga.” (We should really stop minding stuff like this, huh?)

Alfie Lorenzo on ward Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano’s marital problem: “Alam ko, maaayos din ’yan at makakapag-usap din ’yan. Maliligawan ulit ni Cesar [si Shine], mabobola ulit. ’Yung unang away nga nila, lumayas si Sunshine, umupa ng sariling condo, ayaw umuwi. Pero kinindat-kindatan lang ni Cesar, bumalik na sa bahay.” (This doesn’t put her in a good light, does it?)

Richard Gutierrez on his daring role in “Seduction”: “Matagal ko nang dream makagawa ng pelikula na iba ’yung character ko. Gusto kong i-challenge ’yung sarili ko as an artist.” (About time.)

Richard on rumors that girlfriend Sarah Lahbati is pregnant: “Marami nang issues ang dumaan sa kanya kaya ’di na namin pinapansin.” (Well, we’ll find out soon enough.)

Lolit Solis on Richard’s butt exposure in his movie: [Nung baby pa siya], nakita ko more than the butt!” (Uh.)

Ramon Pimentel on his late uncle and pioneering TV host, Pepe Pimentel: “When we were together, there wasn’t a time that was dull. He’s always trying to make people laugh. In his heart, he just wanted people to be happy. I would forget my problems because I would go home laughing.” (Rest in peace, Pepe.)

ZIA Quizon

Yasmien Kurdi on write-ups claiming that she and her mom had a falling out because of her decision to get married: “Hindi naman kasi namin ma-out sa public. Mahal ko mama ko at ayokong masira ’yung relationship namin dahil sa ibang tao.” (Fix it and move on.)

Yasmien’s birthday wish: “Pumayat! Eto nga bumili na ako ng running shoes. Naku, sana may hope pa ako!” (Habang may buhay…)

Katrina Halili, asked if she and Mark Herras “had something” during their “Starstruck” days: “Okey lang po… okey naman kami!” (Yes or no lang po.)

Lolit Solis, asked what she would do if she were interviewing Anne Hathaway and the actress got all uppity: “Sasabunutan ko siya! Magiging miserable ang buhay niya!” (And her lawyers would be on your you-know-what faster than a speeding bullet.)

Julia Montes, asked if Coco Martin would be her escort for her 18th birthday party: “Wala pang escort. ’Di ko pa alam.” (Oh, you haven’t asked?)

Richard Gomez, asked if he’d allow daughter Juliana to enter show biz: “It’s really up to her. ’Di ko naman siya pipigilan kung anong gusto niyang gawin in the future.” (Try and keep her out of politics, though.)

Daniel Padilla, asked what he’ll miss about Kathryn Bernardo now that “Princess and I” is ending: “’Yung inaabangan ko siya kapag parating na siya sa set.” (Kilig.)

Judy Ann Santos on persistent rumors that her husband, Ryan Agoncillo, sees other women: “I guess hindi mo maiaalis ang mga ganyang chismis sa isang couple na masaya ang pagsasama. Pupukpukin at pupukpukin talaga kayo ng mga intriga. Kapag naghiwalay kayo, pipilitin kayong magbalikan. Kapag masaya naman kayo, paghihiwalayin kayo… ’di na ako makikipag-debate sa kanila.” (Spoken like an old pro.)

John Prats, asked if he’s okay with Sam Milby courting his ex-girlfriend, Shaina Magdayao: “Oo naman… Sino ba naman ako para pigilan ’yung puso niya?” (Good answer.)

Gretchen Barretto on seeing BB Gandanghari backstage of “The Buzz”: “Lumalapit siya sa ’kin… sabi ko, ‘You’re such a biatch (bitch)! Bakit mas payat ka pa sa ’kin?” (Good one!)

Gretchen asking BB if the latter had butt enhancement: “Totoo ’yan? Baba mo pants mo! Pa-touch! I’m a girl, you’re a girl—pwede ’yan, no?” (Uh, awkward either way.)

Gretchen while interviewing BB: “Nakakainis ’to no? Masyadong mahinhin!” (Something the matter with that, girl?)

Cristine Reyes, asked if she’s ready for a new relationship: “Promise ko talaga sa sarili ko, at sana mapanindigan ko talaga, na wala munang distractions. Kung meron man, siguro friends lang. Pero ’yung masasabi kong relasyon uli, huwag muna,” (’Sus! No would suffice.)
