Rival’s minions target popular star
It was inevitable.
Rumors about Popular Star’s bad behavior are getting louder. Now, Suave Partner is purportedly the one complaining about PS’ prima donna ways.
If the script sounds familiar, it’s because this was the same tactic that led to Cantankerous Luminary’s eventual downfall.
Who stands to benefit from PS’ disgrace? The same people who engineered CL’s undoing are apparently working overtime to poison PS’ well of good will, too.
As usual, there’s a financial motivation behind this not-so-silent skirmish. The attack dogs want Saccharine Rival to prosper by filching PS’ projects. Thing is, SR is just as, if not more, belligerent than PS.
A match made in hell!
Controversial Personality is just as rabid in disparaging Influential Figure in public.
Seems CP has a rather huge ax to grind against IF.
It’s nothing personal, though. It’s all in a day’s work for CP.
Well, CP is acting at the behest of Powerful Patron.
IF has made not a few enemies on the way up—and that includes PP who happens to be the boss of CP.
Ergo, CP will not stop until IF vanishes from the face of the earth.
Coworkers can’t help snickering behind Scandalous Celebrity’s back.
SC was not the star of a coming project. Still, SC kept hogging the limelight. Although others were bound by a confidentiality rule, SC kept blabbing left and right.
After all, it was SC’s chance to brag, after suffering a series of embarrassing setbacks.
Seemed CP couldn’t let go of lost glory. Alas, colleagues couldn’t care less about the pricey trinkets CP kept flaunting in public, as well.
Perky Starlet should really go easy on the cosmetic enhancements.
PS now looks like a science experiment gone awry.
The implants were a bad idea and the constant liposuctions did more harm than good.
PS wanted to approximate idol, Glamorous Beauty’s fairy-tale princess look. Instead, PS ended up with the visage of a sinister witch.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Now, the real reason behind this high-profile breakup can be revealed.
Dreamy Sweetie had no choice but to dump Troubled Lover.
Seemed DS could no longer stand TL’s quirks. But the straw that broke the camel’s back was TL’s decision to make drastic changes—not only in the professional, but in the personal realm, as well.
Let’s just say DS didn’t approve of TL’s latest reinvention.
It was a dealbreaker, in more ways than one.
