‘Don’t state the obvious’

/ 12:20 AM May 31, 2020

Remember Veteran Singe­r (VS) and Seasoned Songstress (SS) with a long-standing feud? The two performers look calm and collected every time their paths cross. After all, “teleserye”-channeling face-slapping, hair-pulling or insult-hurling incidents in public are beyond them.

But when there are no came­ras or nosy reporters around, they’re catty as heck.


In one splashy event, for instance, VS was asked by a common friend where SS was. With a twinkle in her eyes, VS quipped, “SS doesn’t really get invited to truly glitzy events like this. She doesn’t belong here. Ikaw talaga—don’t make me state the obvious!”




This week’s top show biz news from the tabloids (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

• Bench reveals plan to bring “Crash Landing on You” star Hyun Bin to PH. (CLOY fans, rejoice!)

• James Reid itinalagang ambassador ng food security ng Department of Agriculture; bagong role na kanyang gagampanan. (Doesn’t hurt to have someone as pogi bat for food security. Right, JaDine fans?)
