Hunky star’s past collides with the present

/ 12:30 AM November 19, 2017

It’s a small world, after all. Who knew they would eventually cross paths? Celebrated Personality has something in common with Pert Celebrity: Hunky Star.

When HS was a struggling wannabe, CP dutifully acted as tireless mentor and benefactor.


Fast forward to the here and now, HS, who is now on top of the world, is heavily involved with PC.

A new venture led PC to CP. Will they be exchanging notes about HS?


Apparently, HS has told PC all about CP—at least, the professional aspects of their relationship.

Tactical alliance

Bullish Upstart’s behavior leaves Seasoned Luminary flabbergasted.

BU had the temerity to disparage Grizzled Insider. To top it off, BU tried to recruit SL in the ill-advised crusade.

To think, SL was once the target of BU’s acerbic quips!

But will this tactical alliance, no matter how tenuous, serve its dubious purpose?

Will SL side with BU against GI?



Shocked Insider insisted that an acquaintance had witnessed a rather embarrassing “close” encounter involving Vociferous Veteran and Naïve Neophyte.

SI made sure to grill the Hapless Witness.

Everyone thought it was just an urban legend or, worse, a figment of VV’s lurid imagination.

HW, however, asserted that “it” actually happened. SI couldn’t help squirming in sheer horror.

Secret deals

After a series of missteps, Struggling Newcomers finally got their just deserts.

SNs purposefully went behind the back of Loyal Partner. Worse, SNs made secret deals with LP’s Fierce Rival.

LP understandably got exasperated and banned SNs.

Now, SNs have no choice but to depend on FR. Thing is, will FR be as generous and tolerant as LP?



From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

High-flying Beauty made heads turn at a recent splashy event.

If you were to sum up the price tags of HB’s attire, including the shoes, accessories, and glittery gems and jewelry, the grand total would be enough to build a modest mansion.

Such mind-boggling display of wealth is making peers green with envy—particularly, Venomous Rival. No matter what VR does, HB would still be able to top it. It’s a game of one-upmanship that VR would certainly lose.
