Powerful Playboy has pimps who set him up for dates
It seems the underlings of Powerful Playboy are taking their jobs as procurers way too seriously.
Gay Pimp has been calling up several celebrities, including Gifted Actress, asking for a date with PP.
GA is stunned speechless, especially since she’s on the rebound after a bad romance.
GP and someone close to PP are also trying to ensnare Glamorous Celebrity who’s very much in the news these days.
GC isn’t taking the bait, however, as she is currently involved with a young guy.
Another Famous Pimp tried to set up Beautiful Star with PP.
Even after BS had put a stop to the scuttlebutt, PP’s camp still sent feelers, trying to schedule a date.
PP’s handlers don’t seem to understand the meaning of the word “no.”
An insider in Revitalized Station denies that Major Star is making the big leap anytime soon.
Someone from MS’ camp agreed with the mole. MS still has two projects pending in Old Home.
Although MS is inclined to accept one project, the other is expendable, said a source.
Seems MS’ Influential Backer is playing hardball with OH execs – to bolster the disenchanted star’s position in the faltering empire.
Cute Hunk thought that by joining forces with Influential Backer, he’d get to increase his stock in Aggressive Station, said a mole.
CH’s gambit backfired instead, an insider claimed. AS didn’t give in and CH failed to clinch a lucrative contract – in spite of IB.
CH was left eating humble pie in the end.
Showbiz Insider is losing the trust of formerly loyal talents, according to a spy.
SI is quite flippant, unreliable and incompetent, a Top Exec pointed out. Increasingly dissatisfied, the stars gave SI the pink slip.
SI, however, remains nonchalant – insisting that the stars’ exodus is not that big a loss.
At one point, a shoot was packed up because Big Star couldn’t fit in the costume.
Now, on the set of a new movie, Beleaguered Filmmaker has the same problem not just with one, but two Heavyweight Stars.
The costume department is complaining because HS1 and HS2 are difficult to dress up.
“We could only borrow models’ sizes from boutiques, and HS1 and HS2 can’t fit in them,” sighed a harassed staffer.
Ate Vi on ‘Anggulo’

Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Heart Evangelista on portraying a woman possessed by evil spirits on “Spooky Nights”: Naba-bother talaga ako kaya pray ako nang pray bago ako bumaba ng kotse. Ayoko talaga ng mga nasasapian … Ayoko talaga! My gosh!” (O sya, sya, diyan ka na lang sa loob ng kotse.)
Shalani Soledad, asked if things are going too fast for her and fiancé, Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo: “As the events unfolded, I guess may mga bagay na nagugulat ka na lang na biglang nangyayari.” (Sana mapanood namin ang replay.)
Dennis Trillo on rumors that he was spotted going out with “Sinner or Saint” costar Bianca King: “Lumalabas kami. Marami kaming ginagawang bagay na magkasama. Kumain, ganun. Wala naman talagang masama dun ’di ba?” (Onga naman, mabuti nga ’yun e, may ginagawa sila.)
Sheryl Cruz, asked if she’s entertaining suitors at the moment: “Meron pero wala akong nakikita na talagang nakukursunadahan o napupusuan. Wala pang ganun. I guess I’m not really in a hurry to look for a relationship … ” (Try harder, guys.)
Glaiza de Castro on the possibility of a romantic relationship with “Amaya” costar Sid Lucero: “Ang alam ko may girlfriend siya. At kilala ko ’yung girlfriend niya. Huwag nating pangunahan ang mga bagay-bagay. Pero masasabi ko na OK talaga siyang tao.” (Is that a “yes, if,” or a “hope so”?)
Louise de los Reyes on rumors that she’s an adopted child: “Kung tinatanong nila kung bakit ako maputi tapos ’yung parents ko hindi, tingnan nila ’yung mga tita at pinsan ko. Kamukha ko sila!” (Kayo naman kasi, baka naman hindi lang siya nagbibilad sa araw.)
Cristine Reyes, asked if she has been a third party in a relationship: “I don’t think so. Never, kasi ako ’yung pinipili. So iniiwanan na [’yung iba]!” (Ang galing mo namang mag-plug ng movie.)
Toni Gonzaga on complaints about Nora Aunor and Anne Curtis holding cigarettes on the cover of magazines: “Naniniwala ako na matalino na ang tao ngayon. Hindi dahil nakakita sila ng cover ng magazine na may [nakahawak sa] sigarilyo, eh magsisigarilyo na silang lahat! Choice natin kung ano gusto natin sa baga natin!”
John Lloyd Cruz, asked about the current state of his love life: “Ganun pa rin, boring! Nothing new except that we [Shaina] are doing perfectly fine.” (It’s another way of saying, “Leave us alone.”)
Vice Ganda on rumors that he had a spat with manager Ogie Diaz: “Masyado na kayong maraming alalahanin sa mga sarili niyo. Huwag niyo nang isipin ang mga pangyayari sa buhay namin. ’Di kami masyadong masaya nitong nakaraan, pero mahal namin ang isa’t isa.” (OK, fine.)
Lovi Poe on love: “I believe that once you love someone, you should give everything. You should always be open to getting hurt … You shouldn’t be afraid to get hurt, because after that, magiging masaya ka ulit.” (Hmm, mukhang masaya nga siya ngayon.)
