Glib celeb is a nightmare in real life
Who knew Petulant Bully, who usually portrays glib, generous, good-natured characters on screen, is the exact opposite, away from the cameras?
PB can be aloof and snooty in person. Worse, PB has a mean temper, according to insiders.
PB didn’t want to be disturbed between scenes.
A bunch of giddy admirers made the mistake of approaching PB. In an instant, PB went berserk.
The visitors were stunned speechless.
Yet another supposedly charming personality, Affable Optimist, is just as toxic in reality.
AO comes across as all sunshine and good vibes in public. In private, however, AO turns into an ogre.
A mole claimed that fans had approached AO for a souvenir photo. AO brashly refused to pose for the snapshot-hunters. AO was equally off-putting to clueless colleagues.
AO is definitely not gunning for the Most Friendly award.
Doomed from the start
Everyone loves Rakish Amore.
Unfortunately, not even diehard supporters can conceal the fact that RA’s latest venture is struggling against Mammoth Competitor.
Is RA’s decision to slug it out with the titans a misstep? Is RA mistaken to avoid Youthful Maiden for a while? Is there life beyond the doomed collaborations with YM?
So many questions, so little time… RA should act fast, before it’s too late.
There’s a brewing battle royale in the biz.
Enterprising Dilettante got caught in a bind.
Amiable Raconteur soon found out about the mistake. When AR confronted the erring colleague, all hell broke loose.
Instead of apologizing, the wrongdoer had the temerity to berate AR.
Poor contemporary, Bodacious Superior, was inadvertently dragged into the fray, too. BS tried to clarify matters. But then again, the cantankerous cohort remains willfully adamant.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Ubiquitous Maven has always been desperate to be famous.
As a newbie in the biz, UM would ask pals to pretend to be fans. Whenever UM was invited to a gathering, the faux groupies would appear from out of nowhere.
They would mob UM, as if the wannabe was a major star!
Well, UM is still at it, employing the same devious tricks to fool people. It’s quite a leap—from fake fans to fake news?
Top of the show biz news
For those who missed last weekend’s show biz news on TV (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
