Starlet wants to change from crazy to classyBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Sexy Starlet has moolah to burn, thanks to Influential Benefactors, and she invested her “earnings” wisely. Now that she is rolling in dough, SS wants a drastic change.
Often dissed for being crazy and crass—her tastes deemed too tacky, her style too tawdry— she now wants to hire topnotch Image Consultant.
IC is asking SS to make drastic changes both in her wardrobe and in her social life. IC’s tip: SS should stop hanging out in watering holes frequented by the ditsy and desperate.
Is SS willing to make that supreme sacrifice? Abangan.
Sultry Starlet was reluctant to pose for a daring pictorial—maybe because she had a “hair-raising” secret.
On the day of the shoot, SS neglected basic grooming guidelines observed by models in the fashion industry.
The art department worked extra hard to clean up SS’ scorching hot pics, especially in parts where the sun should be able to shine.
Method in the madness
Drama Actress goes the extra mile to prepare for roles. An admirable trait!
When she had to play an impoverished character, she ate very little to familiarize herself with real hunger. DA, however, required Poor Assistants to join her in fasting. Famished, PAs almost fainted.
When DA had to play a beggar, she stopped taking a bath—and asked PAs to do the same. PAs wanted to draw the line right there, but they really had no choice.
Drunk as a skunk
Heard on the Radyo Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.):
Talented Comic just lost a gig. Turns out, TC is a boozer.
Unlike other drunks who tend to be noisy and belligerent, though, TC sits quietly in a corner when inebriated.
Is that a liability for a comic? Not really, because TC churns out punch lines deftly even when soused.
Problem was, big boss got a whiff of TC’s brandy breath. TC was fired, pronto.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera: Seasoned Starlet has seen better days.
SS often tags along as chaperone of Famous Relative. During an out-of-town show, SS met Powerful Personality.
SS was smitten and turned on the charm big time, brazenly flirting with PP. The guy, more spooked than interested, fled, huffing: “Is she clueless?”
More accurately, hasn’t she heard that PP is thoroughly and happily gay?
