Persistent duo wins against mean colleague
In the end, an unholy alliance prevailed against Haughty Coworker.
Everyone hates HC, who can be quite imperious on the set.
HC’s attitude problem grew worse after getting involved with Influential Honcho.

Soon enough, HC and IH split up and PC entered frame.

Rival Company’s dirty tricks department continues to sling mud against Popular Charmer.
RC’s attack dogs have concocted yet another noncontroversy against PC.
Now, PC is being linked to flamboyant Stylish Friend.
PC, who has no issue getting close and cozy with gay pals, is now being subjected to all sorts of nasty innuendos.
Even PC’s “amity” trinket, which looks similar to the one worn by SF, is now being offered as undeniable proof of a secret affair.
And his career ended before it could even begin.

Unlike the controversies that involved other heartthrobs, CN’s alleged video is more damaging. While the others were mere “solo” acts, CN had a partner in his viral vid.
Alas, CN’s “costar” was of the “wrong” gender.

Troubled Cutie is in dire straits again.
TC asked Spiritual Adviser if he could crash in the church for a few nights while he gets his act together. SA opened the sacristy’s doors to TC.
TC then filched several of the parish’s valuables and vanished without a trace.
SA learned too late that TC had gone back to his old vices.
TC is no Jean Valjean, for sure.
