Hunk wrongly dismisses colleague’s project as a flop
Once again, the green-eyed monster rears its ugly, envious head.
According to a spy, Popular Hunk unwittingly exposed his true colors during a casual conversation. A buddy told PH that Talented Colleague had bagged a plum part in a High-profile Project.
PH suddenly turned catty and petty. Laughing haughtily, PH scoffed that TC was miscast and predicted that HP would flop big time. “Producers are just wasting their investment.”
As luck would have it, PH was proven wrong, and HP hit the jackpot. Perhaps PH was merely sore because TC had achieved success against all odds.
To top it off, TC was convincing as a macho man—something PH could never pull off, not even with the aid of special effects.
Junk the jinx
Is arrogance a job requirement among this studio’s talents?
Pretty Starlet, PH’s coworker in the same firm, is universally despised by insiders.
Contrary to her public image, PS is not bubbly at all. PS can be snooty—snubbing costars and crew members with equal derision.
Observers wonder why PS throws her weight around like a big star when she has yet to come up with a hit movie or TV show.
Truth be told, PS has been dubbed “jinxed” by naysayers.
Well, PS’ latest project predictably tanked—dragging everyone involved down the drain.
Seasoned Thespian is furious.
ST claims that Pugnacious Colleague has yet to turn over payment for a certain venture.
Years later, PC still avoids ST every time they bump into each other in show biz gatherings. ST got fed up and reported PC to Influential Backers.
Is this the reason why PC failed to hoodwink IBs this time around?
IBs declined to get involved in PC’s latest endeavor. After all, other stars could end up having the same unfortunate experience as ST.
And the IBs don’t want to get deluged with complaints again.
Cause of delay
Clients are getting antsy.
Two big events have been pushed to the back burner because of Major Star. A source insists that MS’ camp has been asking the bosses to postpone the projects.
MS has been sickly of late. Or maybe MS is merely lovesick?
Those in the know claim that MS is raring to get hitched with Charming Cutie.
Alas, MS’ Assertive Handlers have other plans.
But then again, are the AHs behind all this? After all, these delays add the mystique of Fame and Power to MS, whose career is currently losing steam.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Well-meaning friends are seriously alarmed because Hunky Celebrity looks troubled these days. HC often comes out unkempt, smelly and frazzled in public. Even his fingernails are long and dirty.
To think, vanity used to be HC’s middle name.
Pals suspect it’s because HC has yet to recover from a recent romantic upheaval. Or is HC preparing for a new role?
Is this what they call Method acting? Or is HC simply on the verge of madness?
