Moneyed lover snubs alluring luminary in splashy event

Moneyed Lover has yet to forgive Alluring Luminary for past mistakes. ML and AL were once the perfect couple. Turned out their affair was a catastrophe waiting to happen.

Long after a messy parting of ways, ML and AL crossed paths during a high-profile event graced by Tinseltown’s brightest gems.

In the presence of common pals, ML snubbed AL! It was as if AL was invisible in ML’s eyes.

Was that the reason why AL was acting up that day? Was that a desperate attempt to draw attention to oneself? All the more reason for ML to ignore AL…

Foot in mouth

Less talk, less mistakes. Aggressive Magnate, however, failed to heed this well-worn advice to garrulous show biz denizens.

Inquisitive insiders cornered AM, who willingly answered queries concerning those persistent rumors of romance with Studly Maverick. By chatting about SM, AM inadvertently imbued the gossip with a smattering of truth.

Does AM want the whole world to know that SM is now an “exclusive” property and, ahem, playmate?

Leathery lothario

As far as Seasoned Lothario is concerned, age doesn’t matter. According to the rumor mill, SL is canoodling with nymphets young enough to be his grandchildren.

SL was once smitten with Winsome Personality who managed to score a string of successes, largely because of the influential benefactor’s wealth and connections. Wags insist that SL is also involved with Scintillating Youngster. SL helped build SY’s posh digs, along with a burgeoning business, in the boondocks.

Difficult revisionist

Seems Cantankerous Celebrity is addicted to power-tripping. CC was determined to make coworkers’ life difficult. CC kept changing the lineup for an ill-fated venture. Just when everyone thought the worst was over, CC decided to revise the entire program once again.

The firm’s Gregarious Chief, however, nixed CC’s plan. It was too late to start from scratch, GC explained. CC remained intractable and decided to pull the plug on the entire project. Unknown to clueless CC, GC heaved a sigh of relief.

Generous passenger

From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

Here’s good news in this season of giving and glad tidings. Whenever the family driver is unavailable, Screen Legend has no qualms taking a cab. Unlike other big stars who are either aloof or stingy, SL is overly generous and amiable, giving hefty tips to the chauffeurs—on top of heaps of chika.
It’s not uncommon for SL to pay P1,000, even if the fare was just P200. No wonder taxi drivers simply adore SL.
