Partner’s pal pays for starlet’s designer duds, mansion
Haughty Starlet is laughing all the way to the bank.
Neighbors raised their brows when HS and Dubious Partner moved into a palatial manse recently.
Adding fuel to the fire, HS can’t resist showing off expensive designer duds and trinkets in public.
According to the grapevine, the sudden, inexplicable wealth was courtesy of DP’s Naïve Pal.
DP apparently duped NP—to the tune of hundreds of millions of pesos. Thing is, NP is not so clueless, after all.
NP knew about DP’s nefarious schemes all along.
High-profile Celebrity managed to penetrate the inner circle of Influential Personality.
Alas, when push came to shove, HC realized that friendships don’t matter in this age of cardboard justice.
Well, IP went beyond the call of duty by warning HC about Troubled Kin’s involvement in illicit activities. IP told HC that TK can end up six feet under.
HC got spooked and made sure TK mended ways… pronto!
Stunning Starlet was initially unsure about an emotionally charged dramatic scene. In order to be convincing in the sequence, SS tapped into real-life heartache.
SS recalled a traumatic episode in her personal life. SS effortlessly wept buckets, remembering how Despondent Relative abandoned the family a few years ago.
SS was initially furious, of course. But it turned out DR only wanted to spare SS from a worsening crisis. When SS discovered DR’s real motivation, she was inconsolable.
