Meal with mascot
Controversial Newsmaker, right after a stressful appointment, decided to treat fans and friends to a fast-food meal.
To expedite the orders, CN bought a party package. As the group sat down to the meal, Restaurant Manager sauntered in brandishing a microphone and announced a surprise guest: A mascot!
CN was stunned silly, but recovered soon enough to start posing for snapshots with the furry guest.
Nubile Neophyte is a frequent visitor in Popular Hunk’s new crib.
NN is too young for PH, with almost a decade between them, but she seems smitten.
Or perhaps she sees a bleak future in the biz, and knows that being PH’s girl is her brightest prospect at this point.
Who knew that tall and slim Charming Heartthrob had such a big appetite?
Recently, after a show out of town, CH piled up all sorts of chow on his plate. Notoriously haughty, CH proceeded to show he was really one of the guys—by eating with bare hands!
It wasn’t a pretty sight, and he left quite a mess on the table. He needs a refresher course on table manners.
Did Striking Celeb see it coming? SC kept babbling that everything was fine and dandy on the set of a high-profile project.
SC even publicly expressed admiration (and undying love) for Powerful Colleague.
Alas, this attempt at damage control was in vain. SC still got the boot, having stepped on the toes of PC’s Attack Dogs, who were quite vindictive and never forgave SC.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Glamorous Personality can be overly thrifty. At the workplace, rather than spend on food, GP would choose to go hungry— or wait for coworkers to order takeout, and then pick at their food!
Even for her clothes, GP depends on sponsors, wearing anything from designer-friends, even ill-fitting and ugly pieces.
Call her “Madame Curie.” As in, kuripot!
Richard walks out
In tonight’s episode of “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez” on E!, Richard walks out in the middle of dinner because of something that twin Raymond said.
Lorin and Venice attend a magic class with their mom and grandmother—and Annabelle accuses Ruffa of flirting with the magician!
