Bodacious celeb is reality-challenged
There was a time Disillusioned Friend would defend Bodacious Celeb against bashers.
Until first-hand experience showed DF that the haters were right all along.
In spite of the naysayers, DF teamed up with BC for a promising venture.
From the get-go, BC proved to be a humongous headache, though. BC kept dishing out all sorts of tall tales, relentlessly badmouthing and sabotaging DF’s project.
Finally, DF realized that BC is reality-challenged—a euphemism for a certified weaver of lies.
File under D: For Decepticon.
Years back, Cantankerous Actress befriended Industry Insider in order to get close to Visiting Hunk.
After getting through the cordon sanitaire, however, CA treated II like a complete stranger.
Alas, CA needs to butter up II again. It’s because CA’s crush, Cute Charmer, is flying in—and II is the designated gatekeeper.

Guess Seasoned Jester need not work extra hard these days.
SJ allegedly hit the jackpot in a glitzy casino, bringing home millions of moolah. It was quite a windfall for SJ, who was an A-lister in the distant past.
SJ could very well bankroll several low-budget films with the cash prize. Indeed, SJ could revive a moribund career if the money were invested wisely.
However, it’s not common knowledge that SJ and Famous Cohorts are regulars in gambling joints here and abroad.
Is that why news of SJ’s bonanza is being kept hush-hush?
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Who knew Charming Stud is a Mac loyalist? Yup, CS is user-friendly.
Even as a kid, CS had the nasty habit of “using” girls who were inevitably smitten by his loving nature. As bonus, witty CS always made his sweethearts laugh.
Turned out that CS wasn’t too shy to ask for this and that gift from lovestruck victims.
Did CS’ latest prospect, Dazzling Maiden, uncover CS’ dark side in time? Like the others, DM eventually found the courage to dump the “material” boy.
