Timing of couple’s squabbles is suspicious

12:01 AM May 23, 2018

All this “on-again, off-again” drama is getting a tad tiresome. Affable Beauty has been quite standoffish every time talk turns to sweetheart, Attractive Gent.

Isn’t it convenient that every time they have a new venture to promote, the rumor mill goes on hyper drive regarding the state of their doomed affair?


When AG was drumbeating a certain enterprise, AB was portrayed as a betrayed martyr. When it was AB’s turn to court the masses, AG was again cast as a good-for-nothing Lothario.

The script sounds monotonous by now and needs to be revised … pronto!


Silent warrior

Asked about the raging war between Bombastic Tyrant and Engaging Mate, Bodacious Anchor suddenly turned inexplicably reserved. The usually loquacious BA chose to keep mum.

BA has pretty strong opinions about EM’s enemy, though. While chatting with a pal, BA openly criticized BT for having a humongous ego. Indeed, BT’s arrogance knows no bounds.

Alas, BT has finally found a worthy opponent in BA, who can unleash a torrent of curses by uttering a few choice words.

Now that takes talent.

Serial offender

It’s not the first time that Libidinous Acolyte has been caught with the “proverbial” pants down. According to a mole, LA has been promising fame and fortune to gullible lads for the longest time.


LA was once accused of corrupting a minor and landed in jail for the horrific criminal offense. Now, LA is facing yet another complaint. Tsk. Tsk.

Demolition job

There’s another side to a shocking story. Maverick Libertine has been the subject of a salacious scuttlebutt of late.

Colleagues have been whispering about ML’s supposed scandalous tryst with Macho Jock. Friends have rushed to ML’s defense.

They are confident that the conspirator behind the “demolition job” would soon be exposed. ML is apparently aware of the source of the tittle-tattle. ML suspects Bitter Coworker is behind the plot.

Missing moolah

From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

As a certain institution’s valued client, Rich Jock enjoyed various perks. For starters, RJ could make transactions even after office hours.

One fine day, RJ arrived late for an appointment, but still the office manager accommodated the request to handle a million-peso account.

RJ then proceeded to another engagement. While RJ was relishing a meal at a resto, the cell phone kept ringing. Turned out, the amount RJ had left was short by a couple of thousands. RJ remained adamant that there was no mistake. But who would take responsibility for the missing funds?
