Flummoxed by fake



Despite their differences, Enticing Dad (ED) and Pretty Mom (PM) always have the interest of their child in mind.

Thus, even if the courts granted PM sole custody of the child, ED can see his son any time.

Just recently, ED surprised his child with a pair of expensive shoes as birthday gift. Of course, PM was happy with the gesture, more so the boy, who proudly showed off his new shoes to school his classmates the next day. But they were hardly impressed, pointing out insensitively his brand new shoes were fake.

Observant mother that she is, PM realized something was wrong when his child came home all quiet. After some prodding, the child told her what happened.

Bothered, PM visited the shoe brand’s flagship store to have the product checked. To her dismay, the shoes were indeed mere replica.

PM was more flummoxed than embarrassed. She can’t believe ED gave their child a counterfeit.

Selfie for naught

Famous actor (FA) recently allowed A Fan (AF) a photo op that never was.

It happened in a nondescript restaurant in the city. AF was with friends when she saw FA dining by his lonesome. So, she bravely approached FA and asked for a selfie.

To her surprise, FA offered to take the selfie himself. How sweet, how considerate, how humble, right?

Well, AF eventually realized what FA actually meant with his action. Taking the photo using his own phone, he obviously didn’t want AF having a picture of him.

Indeed, FA didn’t bother to ask for AF’s number, something he should’ve done if he intends to at least send her a copy.

Unsure of what transpired, AF simply thanked her idol and walked away.

Suddenly severed

Top Personality (TP) and Favorite Celebrity (FC) cut ties recently.

The relationship began long before both became famous. The two became close when they were just starting out.

The uncoupling was caused by TP making a major faux pas that offended FC. TP allegedly poked fun at a Senior Member (SM) of a project that involved FC. The joke was taken personally by FC. Deeming it rude, FC gave TP a piece of his mind.

TP didn’t take to it lightly, supposedly going on to request talents in the projects of FC be barred from his show.

While others think the rift is temporary, the gap is widening. Kibitzers think it’s only a matter of time before the whole thing explodes.
