Drunken holidays for serial offender
TROUBLED Personality frequently insists that he’s clean and sober. Close associates beg to differ, however.
When TP reports on the set, he often reeks of alcohol—prompting peers to wonder if his favorite perfume is called Pale Pilsen.
Once, TP arrived at work, brandishing a cup from a famous coffee shop. When a coworker got a sniff of the supposed brew, it smelled suspiciously like brandy, not coffee.
TP’s addiction is getting worse by the minute. In this season of endless partying, can someone act as TP’s designated driver—before he encounters a mishap on the road?
While putting the finishing touches on a project, Powerful Veteran had a heart-to-heart chat with Flamboyant Colleague.
Talk turned to matters of the heart. PV was shocked to discover that FC and Hunky Ward have been together for over two decades—and their affair is going strong, thank you.
FC is doggedly loyal to HW—and vice versa. Even though HW has already settled down and is raising his own kids, he still regards FC as his first “wife.”
Welcome to the First Wives’ Club.
Combative Insider suffered the ultimate comeuppance. CI’s schemes forced several coworkers out of a certain company—including Vociferous Novice.
CI blocked VN’s career every step of the way. CI dismissed VN as talentless and obnoxious. Although CI was not exactly mistaken, VN’s eventual exit was the final straw—especially since the upstart inexplicably hit it big in rival firm.
Soon enough, CI ended up in the departure area and was unceremoniously dumped by the Big Bosses.
Feisty Supporter of Gifted Newbie isn’t surprised that the naïve guy got his Hot Lover preggers.
Turned out HL is more aggressive than GN. FS witnessed how HL would run after GN. HL herself would knock on GN’s bedroom door. No wonder HL got knocked up.
FS advised GN to keep his impending fatherhood hush-hush.
Needless to say, FS abhors HL—and will do everything to drive a wedge between her and GN.

Top of the tabloids
This week’s top show biz news in the Inquirer tabloid Bandera (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Jennylyn Mercado: Masaya ang puso ko, saktung sakto sa Pasko! (And a Marry, ahem, Merry Christmas to you, too!)
Naniniwala ang marami na si Dennis Trillo ang tinutukoy ni Jennylyn na nagpapaligaya ngayon sa kanya. Ilang beses na kasi silang nahuhuli sa akto na magka-date at magka-holding hands pa. (Caught in the act?)
Ang bigat ng istorya ng “Honor Thy Father,” parang hindi ito nababagay sa Metro Manila Film Festival na dapat ay masaya lang dahil nga Pasko. Pero sa ganda nito ay nagdesisyon ang MMFF organizers na isama na ito sa eight official entries. (Discerning reviewers love it, though.)
Nabura na ng “A Second Chance” ang record ng “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” bilang “highest grossing Filipino movie of all time.” Umabot na kasi sa P556 million ang kinita ng pelikula nina John Lloyd Cruz at Bea Alonzo. (Nth chance ang peg.)
Parehong galit na galit ang fans nina Maine Mendoza at Julie Anne San Jose dahil may sumira sa Walk of Fame spot ng dalawang TV personality. Kitang kita sa pictures na naglabasan sa social media na may lamat ang kanilang Walk of Fame mark. Obvious na obvious na may nanira nito. (Walk of Shame for the vandals?)
