Pay Your Dues

These days, the sensitivities of people are on a high note such that any perceived transgression of a party is interpreted as a violation of one’s rights. Instead of engaging in dialogue first, most parties prefer to file cases especially when they believe their pride and honor have presumably been placed in an embarrassing position in the eyes of the public. Hence, the legal profession seems to be in demand for many celebrities facing their respective bouts with the law.

When Industry Celebrity (IC) felt that an incident challenged her reputation, she immediately decided to make a case. Rather than take things in stride, IC hired the best lawyer her money could afford and her legal team was very confident that the lawsuit was foolproof. There was no turning back and IC was firm in pursuing the case, rather than find a non-legal solution.

Choosing high profile lawyers these days is also a way of sending a message to the sued party. One message is to show the seriousness of the case and the other is to intimidate the other party. IC was set on winning.

As the public only gets updates when the press covers legal battles, things turned quiet for IC as soon as the case was already in court. The proceedings hardly earned any media coverage and many thought IC had a strong case. After a few months, the court released a decision, which surprised IC. Her case was weak and the court dismissed it. Apparently, the lawyer of the sued party did the homework.

Whenever a court issues an unfavorable decision, expect appeals to be filed. In the case of IC, no such appeal was filed. This development was surprising, as IC was in such fighting form when she filed the case and people assumed that she was ready to fight for the case.

The question as to why IC seems to have accepted the decision and remained quiet is that she had a different way of viewing payments. As she lost the case, she refused to pay her legal team and cited that she did not win, anyway. Hence, with such thinking, the legal team lost interest to file any appeal on her behalf. Perhaps, IC ought to be reminded that whether one wins or loses a case, one pays for rendered legal services. Payment is never dependent on the outcome of the case decision.

Be Wary of Lending A Phone

Image courtesy of www.bloomberg.com

During a shoot for a project, Matured Actress (MA) and Charming Personality (CP) developed a friendship, which made them closer and more comfortable with each other. Like MA, CP started her career at a young age and is making her way to the top. MA, meanwhile was on her way to higher popularity when family matters called. Thus, MA had to take a moment to rest and as soon as she could, resumed her career.

As she was rushing for work, MA forgot her mobile. She needed to make an urgent call to check on her family. CP then lent her phone and excused herself for a moment. After making her call, MA became curious and started looking at the photo albums in the said mobile. That was the moment that MA would have probably regretted: as once seen, cannot be unseen.   

MA saw several photos of young male actors, ranging from newbies to seasoned ones. While photos of young male actors might seem harmless, most of these showed them naked. MA recognized a number of actors, as she had worked with them. Even one of the prized talents of the network was part of the album. MA saw videos showing CP giving the job to some of them. However, what really bothered MA was the video of CP with a Seasoned Actor (SA) who could pass on as her older brother or even a young father figure, one who is supposed to guide the young and not take advantage. SA did it all the way with CP and it made no difference that he is supposed to be happily married.

When MA sensed that CP was near, she closed the app and pretended that she did not see anything. She handed the phone even though she felt her knees weaken at what she had seen. MA was so disturbed that she had to talk to someone. While she wanted to reach out to CP and tell her to seek professional help, she feared that CP would be called out by her management. Consequently, CP’s career might be affected. Worse, if CP loses her phone and it lands in the hands of the wrong people, all those incriminating and compromising videos and photos could stir up scandals all over the Internet.
