MANILA, Philippines--Slightly inebriated, Handsome Hunk found himself romancing Sexy Vixen, whom he had competed with on a reality show.
After a rowdy party, SV spent the night in HH's hotel room. It's her second time to end up in the arms of the enemy, so to speak.
SV previously had a fling with Chatty Personality, a contestant in an earlier edition of the same show.
Rich Client 1 wanted to hire Estranged Partner of Controversial Star. The planned deal didn't sit well with CS, who's close to RC1.
CS allegedly asked RC1 to junk the offer to EP. And we thought they were cordial?
Similarly, CS supposedly intervened when Rich Client 2 tried to hire Sweet Personality, who was once a part of her life somehow. And we thought they were civil?
In and out
Indie Star is out of a high-profile project. IS practically had the plum part in the bag. What happened?
It was the second time in just a few months for IS to lose an important role. Is it because IS has become too big a star for small films?
Kapamilya all his life
ABS-CBN talent Piolo Pascual shot down persistent rumors that he will soon be moving to TV5.
"I signed up with Channel 2. Nakikita niyo ko sa TV everyday, very much a Kapamilya," he said in a recent interview aired on "Showbiz News Ngayon" (SNN).
The actor, currently starring in the teleserye "Noah," added: "Masaya naman ako sa ABS-CBN, masaya ako sa 'Noah,' masaya ako sa career ko." (Okay!)
Jewel Mische sounded happy, too, after officially signing up as a Kapamilya talent. The former "StarStruck Ultimate Sweetheart" and GMA 7 contract star has joined the cast of two teen drama series, "Kristine" and "Mara Clara."
Jewel's comments on her new home studio, also aired on SNN: "Nag-uumapaw ang kasiyahan. Natutuwa po ako. Kinakabahan din pero above all, masaya." (Ayos!)
It's interesting how she finds time to study, simultaneously, Music at UP Diliman, Theology in Cathedral of Praise Bible College and Aviation at Yokota Aviation School.
<Strong>Rocker leader </strong>
MOSCOW--Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sang praises to Elton John after the latter's concert in Moscow on Sunday, writing on Twitter he was impressed with the British pop icon's show, RIA Novosti agency reported.
"Very serious work, of very high quality--almost three hours of live music," wrote the president, who cultivates the image of a modern leader and rock music fan, often referring to his love of Pink Floyd and Deep Purple.
In August, Medvedev met U2 front man Bono while the Irish rocker was in Russia for his band's first performance there. AFP
<Strong>The split came first </strong>

Hurley, 45, who has an 8-year-old son, Damian, married Indian businessman Nayar three years ago. Britain's News of the World tabloid reported on Sunday that Hurley had spent two nights with Warne, 41, in his London hotel suite last week. AFP
<Strong>Top of the talk shows </strong>
For those who missed last weekend's TV gabfests. (And why we are moved, if we are moved.)
One of the highlights of Cristine Reyes' barrage of Twitter messages apparently directed at Sarah Geronimo:
"Kumanta ka na lang! Bwiset ka." (Harsh!)
Kris Aquino, asked if she was seeing Mayor Junjun Binay:
"Seriously and honestly, hindi na kami nag-uusap, hindi na kami nagte-text, at hindi na kami nagbi-BBM (Blackberry Messenger). All forms talaga, isali mo na pati ang Skype at YM (Yahoo! Messenger), wala talaga." (Kasi naman, pinapatulan pa ito e.)
Iwa Moto on reports that she is married and pregnant:
"Utang na loob... hindi po totoo... limang taon akong buntis?" (Oo nga naman.)
Queenie Padilla on rumors that she was hospitalized due to diet pills:
"Umiinom po ako dati. Kasi nahihirapan akong pumayat. Pero ngayon, nag-stop na po ako kasi parang nababaliw na ako.." (Naku, ineng, don't say that.)
Manny Pacquiao, asked if he would allow wife Jinkee to enter show biz:
"Hindi, ayoko siyang pumasok. Kasi mamaya baka mapabayaan yung business namin, mahirap. Bakit pa siya papasok ng show biz? What for?" (English 'yun!) ("Star Talk," "The Buzz") With Gerry Plaza and Allan Policarpio, Contributors
