Cute heartthrob screams at lovely partner
On the set, Pretty Starlet was spooked by an insect that landed on her shoulder. PS instinctively flicked off the poor critter, which went straight to Cute Heartthrob’s face.
CH screeched like a banshee. Everyone around them silently snickered: CH had accidentally revealed his true colors! Peeved, CH took it out on PS, cursing, “I hate you! I hope you lose all your endorsement deals!”
Oldie but goodie
For a change, Controversial Personality—known for hooking up with nubile nymphets—was linked to Seasoned Celebrity, certainly no spring chicken.
Perhaps CP and SC are cooking up other “prospects” beyond the romantic variety. SC’s last entanglement with Influential Figure supposedly yielded profitable projects.
SC knows how to mix business with pleasure. Which should explain why she is rolling in dough, though apparently jobless.
Observers wonder why Notorious Playboy’s supporters are not big fans of his erstwhile partner, Sultry Beauty. A source complains that SB is a tad materialistic.
True enough, enterprising SB surreptitiously set aside moolah meant for NP’s failed ventures in and out of show biz.
SB was tasked to guard the cash pool. Alas, she helped herself to the loot. No wonder NP’s loved ones have yet to forgive SB.
Booted from Cougar Town
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Debonair Hunk vanished from the scene for a while.
DH was busy escorting Cougar Benefactor all over town. As expected, CB eventually grew tired of DH.
A spy says CB dumped DH, who soon found himself in dire straits.
Pals hope DH has learned his lesson and makes sure not to be dependent on sugar mommies in the future.

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 being “Mrs. Escudero”: “Masaya pero nanibago pa rin ako. Feeling ko lagi lang akong tinutukso.” (What a difference new initials make!)
Lolit Solis on Jackie Forster’s latest rants against the talent manager’s ward Benjie Paras: “Pathetic! ’Di ba kapag humiwalay ka na sa isang tao, ang gusto mo maging maligaya na kayo pareho? Parang gusto niya na siya pa rin may-ari kay Benjie. Imbes na aksayahin niya ’yung oras niya sa pagpo-post ng kung anu-ano (in social media), ligawan na lang niya ’yung mga anak niya.” (Tumpak! Spin a win!)
Lolit, still on the issue: “Natutuwa ako na nakalbo si Benjie. Kasi kung mahaba pa buhok niyan, baka lalong ’di matahimik si Jackie! Ang guwapo-guwapo ni Benjie… Jackie, ’di na siya tutubuan ng buhok!” (Keri lang. )
Kathryn Bernardo, asked if she and Daniel Padilla are in a relationship: “Hindi naman namin maitatago na special kami sa isa’t isa; we’re very close.” (A no that kinda means yes.)
Kathryn, asked if she’s okay with Daniel seeing other girls, and if he’s okay with her seeing other guys: “Sa ’kin, ang selfish ko naman kung sasabihin ko na huwag siyang manligaw ng iba. ’Di ko siya ipagkakait sa iba. Kung si DJ naman … I don’t know!” (A yes that kinda means no.)
Kathryn, asked who she thinks is her biggest competitor among Julia Barretto, Janella Salvador and Liza Soberano: “We’re all different—personalities, strengths and weaknesses… The important thing is, we all work hard. I can’t choose… ’di naman ako sobrang malayo sa kanila.” (The English language doesn’t always fall short.)
Vice Ganda on being bashed by KathNiel fans, who were disappointed that the love team had such a short exposure on a recent “Gandang Gabi Vice” episode: “Nakakainis… pero hangga’t kaya mong magpigil, magpigil ka. Kasi kapag pinatulan mo, ibinigay mo na rin ’yung hinahanap nila… pero minsan dapat din binibigyan sila ng leksiyon.” (Nothing like a dressing down from Vice. Go for it. )
Alex Gonzaga on bashers: “Just let the bashers be bashful! Hahaha!” (Korek, kahit parang wrong!)
Luis Manzano on bashers: “There’s a fine line between critics and bashers na gusto lang manira ng araw… pero kung nasa mood ako, eh ’di tara, hiritan tayo!” (’Wag na, Luis, you should know better.)
Lea Salonga on how she deals with such people: “First stage is to hit the mute button. But if they’re really being very disrespectful, then it’s block and report… We can all invoke freedom of speech, but if [the comments] constitute harassment, then you have to report. I have reported many people.” (Beware, she who knows what to do!)
Maja Salvador, asked if she would quit show biz for love: “Sana huwag naman dumating sa ganun!” (Huwaaaaag!)
Maja, asked if Coco Martin had a chance with her back in the day if she weren’t with Matteo Guidicelli: “Hindi, sure naman ako dun. Pero sobrang bait ni Coco at passionate sa trabaho.” (Kami, hindi sure what this means.)
