Luminary inadvertently comes out of the closet
Is Secretive Luminary planning to bolt out of the closet anytime soon?
SL proudly declared in public what seemed obvious from the start. SL claimed to be “androgynous”—inadvertently fanning the flames of a persistent rumor.
Yup, SL insisted on possessing both masculine and feminine traits.
Talk about having the best of both worlds.
For years, SL has been involved with similarly versatile partners—including Disturbed Star and Aggressive Coworker.
Stunned Peers now eye Assertive Colleague with suspicion.
Seems they can no longer trust AC, who can be flaky and flighty when it comes to important issues.
While SPs got in trouble with Biz Bigwigs, AC emerged smelling like roses after a rather vicious skirmish. Well, AC has a knack for self-preservation and is able to ingratiate oneself with even the most recalcitrant of BBs.
That takes talent.
Well, AC is a true disciple of Darwinism.
AC firmly believes in the survival, not of the fittest, but of the most flexible.
Turned out Veteran Personality is in a hurry to make hay these days.
VP assigned Trusted Cohort to act as the “closer” for various questionable deals. Whenever there is a need to solicit a certain amount from different sources, TC acts as VP’s representative.
TC can be a relentless collector, that’s why. TC demands only cash so that there will be no proof of the transaction, no paper trail, a source claims.
The same mole alleges that TC is shameless, too. After a meeting, TC would “whisper” to clients the amount that VP had asked for.
File under I. For Indiscreet and Indiscriminate.
A for amnesia
As most jaded people would say: In show biz, there are no permanent allies/enemies, only permanent interests.
This age-old adage was proven true when Vociferous Insider patched things up with Loquacious Frenemy. It was because VI needed LF’s expertise that time.
To think VI’s minions, including Vivacious Performer, savagely attacked LF just recently.
Perhaps tons of moolah are at stake? Well, it was enough to force VI to eat humble pie. Or get afflicted with amnesia.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Perky Starlet shamelessly flirted with Hunky Partner on the set.
PS had told everyone that she was interested in HP who was clueless, though.
PS kept dropping hints here and there—to no avail. During a trip abroad, PS thought she would finally score with HP. Alas, HP ignored PS completely.
Now, PS has no choice but to believe all those wild rumors concerning HP’s private life.
Sour grapes, anyone?
