Rowdy hunk hooks up with influential foreigner
Rowdy Hunk tried to strike gold on the international scene. For a while, RH managed to turn heads abroad.
RH, however, hit a brick wall.
Jobless, RH had no choice but to hook up with Influential Foreigner. Without skipping a beat, RH dumped Erstwhile Lover back home.
RH didn’t even consider his promise to take care of EL and family.
Well, RH is now living the high life with IF in a nearby cosmopolitan city.
Thing is, IF isn’t really that much of a looker. Is that why RH avoids appearing in public with IF?
Seems wooing “Crazy, Rich Aliens” is the most viable option for unemployed hunks.
RH’s Macho Nemesis likewise found himself in a financial slump. MN’s goal of global success swiftly went pfft.
What’s a dashing dude
MN turned to Powerful
Insider for consolation.
There is talk that MN is now PI’s beau du jour.
Coworkers scoff at this unlikely tandem. Is it because MN is much prettier than PI?
Don’t call him by his name!
A supposed stolen video of an alleged sex party involving gays and closeted men is making the rounds in cyberspace.
The dimly lit, scorching hot encounter was interrupted by unintended hilarity, though. In the middle of a steamy scene, one of the participants made the mistake of screeching out a partner’s name—obviously in the throes of unbridled ecstasy.
A disembodied voice was then heard admonishing everyone: No names, please!
Was it because it was a popular, and therefore identifiable, name?
Karma’s a b*tch
You know what they say about karma being a mean beeatch.
Nefarious Colleague kept badmouthing Riveting Jezebel.
Turned out NC wanted to lure people, particularly Yummy Playboy, away from RJ. NC was able to convince YP to break ties with RJ. NC also counseled YP to pursue Luscious Artiste—to jumpstart an otherwise lackluster career.
Soon enough, NC was handling YP’s affairs.
RJ effortlessly moved on, unruffled by the debacle.
Fast forward to the here and now: LA got rid of YP, while NC was besieged by all sorts of calamities—professional and personal.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Seems Dashing Hunk can no longer tolerate the unpredictable mood swings of Ravishing Mate. Making matters worse, RM gets upset every time DH ventures near Alluring Temptress.
Exasperated DH simply cannot stand RM’s jealousy attacks anymore.
DH purportedly apologized to AT for the aggravation caused by RM.
Alas, DH had to meet with AT secretly, so that RM wouldn’t go ballistic. DH was the portrait of remorse during the powwow with AT and family, who have been nothing but patient and understanding.
