Powerful official drives away foreign cutie

/ 12:04 AM December 10, 2014

And we thought Foreign Cutie left Show Town because his career went kaput. A mole insists FC was forced to quit the biz after shacking up with Powerful Official (who is supposed to be happily married). When PO grew tired of playing house, FC tried to get even by exposing the truth.

FC blabbed about the hot and heavy affair and PO saw red, of course. FC had to flee the country. After all, PO could have FC silenced. Permanently.


Another hunk, whom PO wooed, got spooked and made himself scarce. Afraid.

Swap meet


Torn between two sets of lovers?

Talented Performer has professed undying love for Gifted Entertainer. Still, TP is frequently spotted in the company of Ambivalent Hottie. AH publicly woos Clueless Starlet, but secretly cavorts with TP.

Where does this confusing foursome leave GE?

Well, GE seems to prefer partners as feminine as CS.

Perhaps GE and AH should just swap partners.

Rock bottom

Now it can be told. Showbiz Veteran took Major Star’s betrayal to heart. Devastated, SV stopped going out and relied on trusted friends and relatives, who rose to the challenge and were sources of comfort.


Does MS even know about SV’s heartbreak? Will MS try to make amends this holiday season? MS can never be truly happy for as long as a former friend harbors ill feelings.

Down payment

Visiting Hunk had always complained about not having his own wheels. Closeted Insider, who has his eye on the guy, got the message.

CI took VH to a car dealership. When it was time to make a down payment, CI came to the rescue.

VH was impressed. After all, the price tag amounted to six figures.

Consider it a partial fee for VH’s heart. CI swings both ways. He was sugar daddy to Controversial Starlet, who is now in a faraway land, in the arms of another rich guy.

Mixed signals

From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

What’s up with Scandalous Starlet? She would get all fired up when her failed romance with Sleek Performer cropped up in interviews.

Curiously, she divulged to her publicists every sordid detail of the breakup.

SS sent mixed signals to the press but told her minions: “You can write about those things. Just say it came from a reliable source.”

You can’t get any more unreliable than that.

Top of the Talk Shows

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

Abra on having “chemistry” with Julie Ann San Jose: “Kapag gumagawa kami ng music, nakakatuwa na ’yung kasama mo is as passionate as you are. Kaya kapag may collaboration kami, nakikita ’yung chemistry.” (Let’s see about that.)

Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Sam Concepcion don’t hang out with her sister. RICHARD A. REYES

Abra, asked if falling for Julie Ann was a possibility: “Walang imposible.” (We’ll take that as a yes.)

Julie Ann on the same subject: “I’m not closing my doors on anyone naman. We’re just really good friends right now.” (He’s also good-looking, and more talented than …)

Freddie Aguilar on throwing a party for his wife Jovie’s 18th birthday: “Pati pamamalengke at pagluluto kinarir ko. At sa buong buhay ko, ngayon lang ako nagka-dance number.” (We’re staying faaar away from this.)

Freddie’s wish for Jovie: “Sana matupad niya ang mga pangarap niya sa buhay at maging successful na chef. Let’s face it, mauuna akong mawala sa kanya, so sana matagpuan niya ’yung kanyang kapayapaan kahit wala na ako.” (Parang unfair yata sa bata.)

Lovi Poe has moved on and wishes director a merry Christmas.

Jovie’s wish: “Sana matupad ko ’yung mga pangarap ko. Sana magka-baby kami, gaya ng lagi naming dinarasal.” (And we’re really faaar now.)

Freddie on estranged daughter Maegan: “I’m still wishing the best for her. Kahit na bali-baligtarin mo ang mundo, anak ko siya. ’Yung nangyari sa ’min, siguro lesson ’yun for me to become a better father and for Maegan to be a better daughter.” (With all due respect … no, never mind.)

Sarah Geronimo on fellow “The Voice PH” coach Lea Salonga being angered by people who leak show results: “Si Ms Lea kasi talagang outspoken—sasabihin niya talaga kung ano sa tingin niya ang tama.” (Good to know the coaches have each other’s backs.)

Coleen Garcia, asked if she is bothered by the 10-year age difference between Billy Crawford and herself: “I never was. We get along really well. My lolo and lola have 20 years between them and they’re still together.” (That’s another time zone yata.)

Julie Anne San Jose is not closing her doors on anyone.

Coleen, asked if Billy is the one: “I really feel in my heart that he is.” (How about in your head?)

Lovi Poe, asked about her tiff with Erik Matti: “I’ve moved on and I wish him the best this Christmas. Walang chance makapag-usap kami, pero OK na ako.” (Merry Christmas all around.)

Carla Abellana on suitor Tom Rodriguez allegedly throwing a tantrum on the set of a game show: “It’s not true, ’di ko alam kung saan nanggagaling ’yun. He was actually not feeling well … siya pa ba ang magdadabog?” (Super defense for a suitor.)

Aiko Melendez on being romantically linked to a guy in his 20s: “Probably he just has a crush on me … we hang out with a group. I’ve been single for the past five years, lahat na lang ng nadidikit sa ’kin, nali-link sa ’kin.” (Ganda mo kasi, ’teh.)

Jasmine Curtis-Smith, asked if her sister Anne Curtis doesn’t like Sam Concepcion: “We can say that we don’t all hang out together.” (Sounds like a yes.)
