Show biz sweethearts bound for Splitsville
Show Town sweethearts are Splitsville-bound, the grapevine says. Rakish Beau boldly claimed his relationship with Luscious Starlet was going strong. But only hours after that public declaration, rumors of an impending split-up broke in cyberspace. What?
Was RB lying through his teeth? Or was he the last to know?
He didn’t get the memo!
Clearly, RB doesn’t want to let go of LS, who is raring to take a break. Hope springs eternal.
Gorgeous Starlet looks angelic, but she has a mean streak.
Years ago, when she was younger, GS got to work with Veteran Performer.
While waiting for cameras to roll, VP sat in front of an electric fan, her tresses flying this way and that. Giggling, GS cracked, “You look like a troll!”
Not amused, VP gave GS a tongue-lashing to remember. VP was an unstoppable cursing machine, it turned out.
Before he got sidelined, Aging Lothario was notorious for scoring with girls young enough to be his children.
AL’s last known conquest was Sexy Employee of a cockpit he frequented. SE hit the jackpot when she shacked up with AL. She lived the high life. Unknown to AL, she was seeing a younger lover on the sly.
SE got her comeuppance when AL got hit by all sorts of crises that sorely cut down her monthly stipend.
Major Star is one of the more successful and popular celebs in the biz. MS, however, is not allowed to have her own postpaid cell phone account.
Strict Parent forced MS to avail herself of a prepaid number so that the poor girl’s outgoing calls and text messages could be limited.
MS keeps complaining, but SP is unmoved. Does MS ask for pasa-load from Cute Boyfriend when she runs out of credits? That would be embarrassing.
MS pitches for a huge telecom firm, which should give her a secret number so she could enjoy unlimited chat with CB!
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Although Enthralling Hunk is swamped with all sorts of projects, he still turns tricks.
EH can’t seem to give up that former job, especially when he wants to buy the latest expensive phone, tablet or laptop.
He’d rather go out with wealthy gays, like regular customer Flashy Businessman, than spend his hard-earned show biz savings.
Call him gadget gigolo.
Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Kobe Paras on his brother Andre entering show biz: “Sobrang proud. Masaya siya. He’s doing something he loves.” (A bro would know.)
Kobe, who committed to play for UCLA in US NCCA Division 1, on missing Christmas with his family: “Hindi ako sanay na hindi ko kasama ang parents ko during holidays. Kailangan ko lang masanay.” (Growing up!)
Andre on Kobe’s success: “I’m also proud of him. And hopefully, when he comes back, we can hang out with our friends and just have fun.” (What would stop you naman?)
Eugene Domingo on her “love team” with “Celebrity Bluff” co-host Jose Manalo: “Gustong-gusto ko siyang yakapin — kasi mabango siya.” (Uuuy.)
Jose on what to expect from the show: “Abangan ninyo ang pagkinis ng mukha ko!” (That has got to be a joke.)

Vic on people waiting for him and Pauleen to tie the knot: “Ewan ko nga kung bakit sila naiinip, eh. Kami nga ‘di naiinip!” (Maybe you’re show biz celebs.)
Pauleen, asked what she has learned from her relationship with Vic: “Selflessness.” (Good one.)
Isabelle Daza on why she transferred to ABS-CBN: “I’d like to try something different. In “Eat Bulaga!” I was hosting. I’d like to get into acting. In ABS-CBN ang daming magagandang actresses, singers, dancers … I want to challenge myself.” (Konti lang ang maganda where you came from?)
Isabelle on ABS-CBN’s “buffet of leading men”: “Ang daming mga guwapo dito who are taller than I am. Siyempre that’s what I need! I want to work with Luis Manzano and Vhong
