Ex-heartthrob enjoys playing the waiting game
Remember the Monumental Actor (MA) who walked out with Delusional Angel (DA) during a press briefing? Apparently, it wasn’t the first time MA left writers high and dry.
After the initial shock brought about by the bratty duo’s “KSP” (kulang sa pansin) ways, Seasoned Journo (SJ) quickly realized it was something he had to shrug off and charge to experience.
“After all, it wasn’t the first time MA did something like that to writers,” SJ explained. “Years ago, MA also made us wait for hours before deciding to grace us with his presence.”
What made MA’s serial tardiness even more infuriating was the reason behind it: It would have been understandable if he were held up by car trouble or another dramatic upheaval in his combustible personal life.
“But we later learned that while we were waiting and waiting and waiting for him, MA was nearby just having a massage, with his similarly insolent costar in tow!”
MA really knows his priorities: In this case, it’s wellness over professionalism. Ouch! INQ
