MANILA, Philippines--time Friday we bumped into Excited Mole at the water cooler nook. EM's rush-hush news: "Basted yata si President."
Shocking! EM qualified the harsh statement: "They have disengaged. Seems the nonexclusive arrangement doesn't work at that level."
So P-Noy is getting another stylist? "Not necessarily," said EM. Hmm, interesting.
Ended too soon, perhaps, but it was good while it lasted, wasn't it? we asked. "Well," EM said, "Liz Uy has at least one endorsement deal coming up."
That is not an answer, we said, walking away. EM's parting shot: "She does have Boy Abunda as consultant for endorsements, doesn't she?"
She wants out
Glamour Girl is reportedly scared out of her wits. GG hooked up with Top Politico in spite of the raised brows in their respective circles.
It was not all that serious for GG, but TP wanted to take the relationship to the next level.
Now GG wants out. Is it too late? More intriguing, a spy wants to know: What happens now to GG's other regular date, Imported Hunk?
Looks can be deceiving. At first glance, Cutie Singer seems as saintly as a seminarian. In reality, he has a potty mouth.
According to a stunned witness, CS once bumped into Former Manager by accident. Though they were in a public place, CS showered FM with expletives that could make a fish monger blush.
All FM could do was cry like a baby. The poor gay still carries a torch for CS.
She was in denial for the longest time, but Celebrity Mom has finally come to terms with Flamboyant Son's gender.
Among friends, CM fondly calls FS "my dalaga... the most beautiful among my children." Of course, FS gets embarrassed whenever CM makes a fuss, but he has always been his mom's favorite.
No time for love
Handsome Hunk broke up with Stylish Girlfriend for the most mundane of reasons. He confessed to pals that he hardly had time for her.
To think SG was totally supportive not only of HH's career but also of his myriad nonshow biz projects. SG gladly acted as secretary, e-mailing and faxing letters for HH's other ventures.
Perhaps HH wasn't looking for that kind of GF--not a girlfriend, but a girl Friday? Ouch.
At the launch of his hair-care line Fanny Serrano Professionals, the celebrity stylist said he was surprised that some people made a big deal of star-client Sharon Cuneta's spiels about Aga Muhlach in the concert of AiAi de las Alas.
"It was a joke," Fanny related. "Before the show, Aga and [wife] Charlene Gonzalez dropped by Sharon's dressing room to greet her. They talked while I was doing Sharon's makeup."
After the concert, Aga and Sharon texted each other, Fanny said.

It's a boy!
LOS ANGELES--John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston has given birth to a baby boy, the couple said Wednesday, adding that they were "ecstatic" about the new arrival, Benjamin. The birth on Tuesday comes nearly two years after their eldest child, Jett, died from a seizure. The newborn weighed in at 8 lbs, 3 oz. The couple have a 10-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu. AFP
