INQUIRER ENTERTAINMENT: RITZY STAR HAS FORGOTTEN ROOTS AS A STARLET
MANILA, NOVEMBER 16, 2011 (INQUIRER) By: the Entertainment staff Philippine Daily Inquirer - Ritzy Star: Don’t talk to my child in Filipino!
Ritzy Star seems to have forgotten her roots as a struggling starlet. RS purportedly accompanied her Teenaged Child to the doc for a noninvasive cosmetic procedure. Clinic Employee made the mistake of chatting with TC.
RS coldly chided CE, “Don’t talk to my child in Filipino.” TC studies in an expensive, exclusive school and understands only English, RS explained.
Alcoholism seems to run in the family. Matinee Idol is notorious in the biz as a lousy drunk. He’s into drunk-dialing—calling up shocked exes whenever he’s under the influence.
A mole says MI inherited his addiction from his father. One time, studio insiders bumped into the dad early in the morning. He invited them to his house for drinks. Beer for breakfast?
Scandalous Star has adamantly denied a reported steamy affair with Married Personality. Turns out, MP paid for SS’ latest trip to the hospital—specifically, the basement of a top medical center. Is she trying to quit dependence on illegal drugs by getting entangled in an illicit romance?
Age doesn’t matter for Graying Playboy. Happily married, or so he says, GP continues to flirt with anyone in a skirt—preferably girls half his age. GP allegedly had a fling with a Flight Attendant recently. Seems GP’s wife is too busy with two jobs—in the entertainment and political arenas—to rein him in.
Controversial Star’s TV show is languishing in the ratings cellar. Production Staffer suggests a change of time slot. CS refuses to budge—with the stubborn intensity of an immovable object.
Apparently, CS has problems dealing with criticism and only believes the press releases churned out by people in her pocket. The TV network has no choice but to bankroll the faltering enterprise, as part of CS’ hefty contract.
PITTSFIELD, Massachusetts—James Taylor is out to prove he can do more than write a catchy tune. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter is taking up acting after more than four decades in the music industry. Taylor is to play Bob Cratchit next month in a Massachusetts’ theater group’s annual performance of “A Christmas Carol.”
Kate Maguire, artistic director of the Berkshire Theatre Group, says she had to coax the 63-year-old Taylor into taking the role. Taylor’s wife, Kim, is returning for her second year as Mrs. Cratchit. Their two sons are also in the production. AP
Top of the Talk Shows
Top of the talk shows: For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

Angel Locsin, asked about her relationship with Phil Younghusband: “Relasyon? Hindi ko alam. Pero kami ay dalawang taong in love… ’Yung happiness na nararamdaman ko kapag kasama ko siya, eh ’di mapapantayan ng kahit anong title … Nakikita kong may future ako sa kanya.” (Somebody paraphrase this, quick!)
