Cute hottie defies handlers, supports pal
All’s well that ends well.
Cute Hottie almost didn’t make it as part of Controversial Friend’s all-star team.
According to a mole, CH’s Savvy Handlers had asked for a rather steep fee before the games started last year. CF’s camp balked at SHs’ demands.
Surprisingly, CH defied SHs and supported CF—gratis et amore. CH is merely repaying a debt of gratitude. After all, CF and Esteemed Kin’s contributions to CH’s career are difficult to ignore.
Good kid knows how to value the people who have helped him on his way to the top.
Seems Admired Thespian is sending a not-so-veiled message of support to fellow Screen Veteran.
In a casual chat, AT obviously dissed Petulant Newbie, who had the temerity to disrespect SV.
AT recalled that, back in the day, a newcomer’s insolence wouldn’t go unpunished. PN would’ve been pursued out of town for treating SV shabbily.
Apparently, AT, who had the misfortune to work with PN recently, got a sampling of the supposed appalling behavior first-hand.
In the act
It is never wise to make a mess in your own backyard… or place of business.
Industry Insider learned this lesson the hard way. II landed a lucrative gig in Show Town.

II fooled around with similarly passionate colleague in the workplace. Unfortunately, the two lovebirds got caught in flagrante delicto.
Next scene: II got the boot and lost the plum job.
There is something suspicious about Seasoned Performer’s new look.
Not a few observers have noticed that SP’s tresses have become thicker and more lustrous of late.
SP, whose forehead had become much too prominent since staging a comeback years ago, obviously sought the help of hair experts. One day, SP was sporting a slick upswept do; the next, it was full bangs for a change.
SP needs to stay forever hip, to keep up with Youthful Partner.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
As a teenager, Scandalous Starlet was a bully on campus. SS allegedly victimized classmates who were too meek to fight back that time.
Fast forward to the present: SS’ former victims have learned to retaliate. Some of them have turned to social media to expose SS’ shenanigans back in high school.
They gleefully revealed SS’ secrets online—particularly, that she was an incorrigible flirt.
SS was, and still is, boy crazy, they insisted.
