Take the case of a romance-comedy actress (RC), who has gained fame by portraying underdog roles and clicking onscreen with one of the hottest leading men of her network. In real life, RC found a match with a hunk of their network. Sometime ago, the station organized a show in one of the cities that is heavily populated with Filipinos.
Some fans requested if they could meet the talents of the network. The mother of one of the fans wanted to meet RC in person. Their contact instructed them to go to the hotel where the stars were staying. At the lobby, the fans saw other talents who gamely posed with them for photos. The atmosphere was festive because all the performers were gracious and accommodating except for one. Right! Although RC was there, the fans noticed she was not mingling with the crowd. In fact, they all felt she was a snob and did not exert any effort to be pleasing to the fans.
The mother of the fan approached RC and politely asked if she could have a picture with her. RC just stood like a dead tree and did not even acknowledge the elderly. The fan and her mother felt that RC was irked over some matter. At any rate, the mother even thanked RC and again, RC did not bother to acknowledge. The fan then told her mother that RC had no right to act that way because she was not yet famous. The rude behavior then made the fan and her family vow never to patronize any project of RC.
Although this incident happened sometime ago, the fan and her family can still recall the shabby treatment RC gave them. Since that time, RC was able to reach the position of being a favorite talent of the network. However, it's been taking a while for her to appear on primetime as her last teleserye ended almost year ago.The longer it takes for her to appear on the evening slot, the greater is the chance that her luster will wane.
