Domineering Arrogance

When a celebrity is at the height of his/her career, attitude plays a major role in determining if he/she will increase or decrease in popularity. The audience can be very picky when it comes to patronizing the projects of such famous celebrities. On the one hand, the audience can refuse to watch the projects of a celebrity that rubs off negatively. One the one hand, other viewers believe that arrogant behavior is acceptable and thus, should not be a reason for abandoning their idols.

However, the problem is that if a celebrity behaves like he/she is still as popular now as he/she at the apex of his/her career eons ago. While certain celebrities manage to keep their popularity level high, most celebrities have to deal with the fact that as they age, their shine wavers. Thus, moving on toward acceptance that one is not as famous as before is a positive step.

In the case of Female Celebrity (FC), her time was over when she decided to leave the entertainment industry and settle down. Soon, her absence in movies and television dramas seemed permanent, and thus, her fans shifted attention to more competent and younger celebrities. However, the lure of showbiz was strong and FC came back to revive her career.

Although years have passed, local viewers were astounded at the way FC kept herself fit and looking young. She is aging gracefully as well. FC can be a headturner and would often be swamped with photo-ops from fans and the like. While other seasoned stars would be flattered at the attention, which indicates that they still have fans despite their age and roles, FC has shown arrogance. This attitude is opposite the amiable image that her photos capture.

During the filming of a project with a millennial cast, fans waited if they could have a photo with the stars, including FC. The younger and more popular stars gamely posted with fans. However, when FC’s turn came, fans were told that she does not allow anyone to take a photo with her, as she does not want anyone near her. This request was something the fans could not understand, as FC is among those actresses who look good even without makeup. To stress her point, FC would move about with her bodyguard close by. Of course, the bodyguard was ready to shoo away anyone who dares have a photo with FC. Thus, fans wondered why FC was again behaving like a diva, when she’s not even the lead in the movie.

Repost: Passenger Dragged Off United Airlines Plane Wins Settlement

The Kentucky doctor dragged off a United Airlines flight from Chicago earlier this month has received a financial settlement from the airline.

Lawyers for Dr David Dao, 69, say a condition of the payout is that the "amount remain confidential".

United boss Oscar Munoz "said he was going to do the right thing and he has", Dr Dao's lawyers said.

Dr Dao was violently removed by airline law enforcement officers after refusing to give up his seat to United staff.

United Airlines incident: What went wrong?

Video of the bleeding Vietnamese-American doctor went viral online and sparked international outrage.

The airline had asked Dr Dao to leave his seat in order to allow four United staff members to get from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky.

He refused, saying he had patients to see the next day.

Dr Dao's lawyer, Thomas Demetrio, said his client "has become the unintended champion for the adoption of changes which will certainly help improve the lives of literally millions of travellers".

Dr Dao suffered concussion, a broken nose, and lost his two front teeth in an experience that his lawyer said was "more horrifying and harrowing" than his experiences during the Vietnam War.

What the plaintiff's attorneys described as an "amicable settlement" comes on the same day that United Airlines announced a shakeup of its booking policy.

Passengers will now be offered up to $10,000 (£7,700) for giving up their seats, among other changes that Dr Dao's lawyer said should be "applauded".

However, aviation experts doubt that many passengers will actually be offered such a large sum.

Delta Airlines also increased its maximum payout to $9,950 and Southwest Airlines said it will no longer overbook flights "as part of our selling process".

"Every customer deserves to be treated with the highest levels of service and the deepest sense of dignity and respect," Mr Munoz said in announcing the airline carrier's change in policy.

"Two weeks ago, we failed to meet that standard and we profoundly apologise."

Three Chicago Department of Aviation officers who pulled Dr Dao off the plane and a supervisor involved in the incident remain on paid leave.

On Wednesday United Airlines once again found itself in the headlines, when a giant rabbit travelling onboard one of its planes died.

The airlines has launched an investigation into the death of the 90cm-long bunny named Simon.

Just be Cool

When Network Employee (NE) noticed that a car in the parking area of the station seemed to be shaking, he immediately went nearer to investigate. As a seasoned employee in the news department, his instincts told him to move toward what seemed unnatural. However, as soon as he got near the said car, he was shocked to discover who were inside.

As soon as NE was next to the car, he tapped on the closed window to see if someone was inside. To his surprise, the window on the driver’s side rolled down and he could not believe his eyes that it was Reliable Filmmaker (RF) and Her Talent (HT) in the driver and passenger seats respectively.

NE asked if everything was okay with RF and HT with his eyes looking at the sweaty RF. RF seemed to have the look of guilt and took a few seconds to compose her reply. A quick glance at the passenger seat was HT looking calm and avoiding any eye contact. After all, he was just in his undershirt and his pants were down.

NE is not naΓ―ve and as soon as he had an idea of what he had stumbled upon and possibly interrupted, he did not show any malicious facial reaction. He had a ‘matter of fact’ face as he talked to RF. To his surprise, RF said that she was just teaching HT the proper blocking for their scenes. NE kept quiet, bid the couple farewell, and went about his own business.

However, NE could not fathom what he had seen. The foremost question in his mind was that RF making out with HT seemed disconnected. Rumors have it that RF was not interested in the opposite sex and thus, seeing her with what could have been an intriguing scenario with HT, NE was left speechless. HT is among the male talents who have had no rumors of preferring the same sex, and is now considered as someone that female fans will soon swoon over.

Repost: Duterte to Block Renewal of ABS-CBN Franchise


President Rodrigo Duterte is taking his fight against media up a notch by formally seeking to block the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.

Responding to questions in a media interview on Thursday, April 27, Duterte accused the network of “swindling.” He claimed ABS-CBN did not show his political ads during the 2016 campaign season though they were already paid for.

“[The franchise] has been there for 25 years. The law said it’s okay, only if you adhere to journalistic standards. What did you do to us? Estafa, swindling, not only me but Chiz Escudero, many of us. Son of a bitch, you collected outright then you commit estafa,” he said.

“So I will file a complaint. Congress, no need to renew it. But to operate is something else, so I will point this out, your garbage, then we’ll see,” he added in an ambush interview right after he gave a joint press statement with Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, who was on a state visit.

Asked if he would “block” the franchise of ABS-CBN, Duterte said, “Yes, if you’re engaged in swindling.”

The President bared his decision to block the franchise renewal days after he signed a law renewing the franchise of ABS-CBN's rival, GMA Network.

House Bill 4349 seeking to renew the franchise granted to ABS-CBN for 25 years is still at the committee level. The franchise will expire in 2020.

ABS-CBN chairman Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III had earlier sought to allay stockholders’ fears that Duterte’s tirades against the company will affect its franchise renewal, saying the anger of an administration towards media is “part and parcel” of the work of media.

Lopez had assured ABS-CBN stockholders on April 9 that he didn't "anticipate any significant issues" with regards to the franchise renewal, saying the company had plenty of time to work on it.

He gave the assurance to his stockholders after the President, in a thinly veiled threat, said in a public address on March 30 that karma was sure to catch up with ABS-CBN and the Philippine Daily Inquirer for their supposed unfair reports on his presidency.

"Tingnan kung magslant. Ewan ko ba. But someday – hindi ko tinatakot – but someday, 'yung karma, dadating 'yan (See how they slant. I don't know. But someday – I'm not scaring them – but someday, karma will come)," Duterte said nearly a month ago.

ABS-CBN has denied this. Chief Strategy Officer Raymund Miranda maintained the media company's "balanced" reporting.

"From a news and current affairs perspective, we have, and always will be, striving to report in a fair and balanced manner," he said. –

Not Just a Walk in the Park

Image courtesy of

These days, absence in media can spell disaster for celebrities. When famous celebrities find themselves in between teleseryes and movies, they face the problem of potentially dropping in their status meters. Thus, managers know the importance of making sure their talents are visible in various media during lull time.

The best way to assure exposure is through endorsements. Given that free TV is laden with advertisements, celebrity endorsers are assured of exposure to viewers. However, not every celebrity can be an endorser of a prestigious product that could afford airtime. Such is the problem noticed by the management team of Actor Singer (AS) and Loveteam Partner (LP).

The management noticed that the couple does not have as many big endorsements as other loveteams despite their being seen in ads. Thus, to address this problem, the management lowered the fee of the couple to gain a competitive edge against the other loveteams. However, the strategy did not result in expectations, as very few products wanted to have AS and LP as their endorsers.

The negative publicity that has hounded the two are seen as a factor in their lack of huge endorsements. The alleged attitude problem of the two has also made agencies think twice in getting the two. As a result of the negative attitude of the two, a very big multinational drink allegedly dropped the idea of taking them as their endorsers.

While the two seem to be a package deal, sources say that advertisers prefer to have AS alone in their product promotions rather than have LP as well. This preference explains why AS has many ads that portray him alone. The public, unfortunately, sees LP in the negative light. Recent developments did not help their obtaining new projects. More importantly, their last major project was a disappointment.
