Intrigue sown by sacred cow ruins whole month for imperious bossBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
I claim Imperious Boss is extra cranky these days. Is IB feeling the heat after an intrigue rocked the fiefdom? It had ruined not only IB’s day, but her entire month!
Worse, IB was dragged into the mess created by Sacred Cow. Critics continue to make minced meat out of IB and SC.
Well, it was only a matter of time. IB has been coddling SC and karma was bound to catch up with them.
And so IB has been in a foul mood of late and underlings have to bear the brunt of the incessant temper tantrums.
The devil also wears “ukay-ukay.” ’Yun lang.
Hunky Star was often criticized for being a lousy actor.
Surrounded by exceptional thespians, HS’ incompetence became more pronounced in his latest project.
Was it the reason that the venture was swiftly junked by the bosses?
Before the curtain fell, HS’ tears flowed freely in one scene, though (without the aid of eye drops).
Too late the heroics?
Observers quipped: Losing the project finally made HS cry on cue.
Handsome Hunk is back to old ways. His career ended up in the dumpster after going haywire. He habitually reported late for work, when he showed up at all— often drunk, drugged and ill-prepared.
HH was purportedly rebelling against Abusive Insider, explained a source.
Another producer gave HH a second chance but it didn’t take long for HH to act up again.
What’s HH’s excuse this time? Is it because another Powerful Benefactor was too pushy?
Heard on the Radyo Inquirer program “Kliq Showbiz” (dzIQ 990 AM, Monday to Friday, 3 to 5 p.m.):
Pretty Starlet was at odds with Sexy Costar on the set of previous project.
Was that why they didn’t hold back when it was time to shoot a cat fight scene? Was that why the slapping, scratching and hair-pulling were way too realistic?
Now SC is badmouthing PS among friends, Beautiful Starlets 1 and 2. Was that why BS 1 and 2 were cold and distant and snubbed PS when they were cast in another project?
SC had poisoned the well.
Picked up from the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Closeted Hunk looks demure and dainty. Turns out, CH is silent but deadly.
During a party held in a faraway resort, CH got a bit drunk with rowdy pals. CH caught the eye of a provincial lad, who seemed ripe for the picking.
CH zeroed in on the target and never let up. Before his buddies noticed, CH had taken a French leave, with boy toy.
The morning after, his friends learned that the beautiful stranger had spent the night in CH’s hotel room.
Rhian in Singapore
Rhian Ramos and Jay R will perform in Singapore’s Hong Lim Park today for an event commemorating the Philippines’ 115th Indepence Day.
The event was organized by GMA International, in partnership with the Philippine Embassy of Singapore, Pilipino Independence Day Council 2013 and Filipino Expatriate Wives.
Are you religiously watching “My Husband’s Lover”? Aminin.
Core cast for the sizzling “bromance” consists of Dennis Trillo, Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez. They got that right.
GMA 7 is obviously proud of this new provocative series, which premiered on Monday.
On Friday, the network reported that, according to data from Nielsen TV Audience Measurement, “My Husband’s Lover” ran away with the ratings.
We hope the series is kept crisp, short and sweet. To let it drag would be a … drag!
The latest season of “The Voice” in the United States has produced a very impressive lineup of finalists.
We have high hopes for the Philippine version, whose “blind auditions” started last night. Much of it rests on the shoulders of the coaches: Lea Salonga, Bamboo, apl.de.ap and Sarah Geronimo.
Philibert Braat, international consultant for franchise owner TALPA, said, “The world knows that Filipinos are the best singers in the world [and] with the coaches that the show has, it’s bound to be of international standards.”
Second half of the premiere telecast airs tonight at 8:15.
