Thrifty Behavior

Friends of Network Celebrity (NC) could not understand where the strange behavior of their friend comes from. Among the talents in this network, NC has remained loyal, although she allegedly tried, but failed, to move to another station a few years ago. When NC finally decided to stay, she was welcomed and given projects, which showed that loyalty indeed pays.

NC, however, seems to have developed peculiar habits that have made people close to her wonder if she’s keeping a secret from them. NC has been observed to be overly frugal despite having a network contract and engagement in various businesses. For example, NC is among the few who does not have a personal assistant and has opted to live alone in her pad. She has to fix her own clothes for her shoots and be on top of her schedule, as she’s doing everything on her own. When asked why she does not have an assistant, NC would cite the additional expense for hiring one.

Moreover, using her being alone and no one to prepare her food, she would always have her container ready. Seeing her pack leftovers from her shooting and bringing them home became a common sight. Then, whenever she and her friends would go out and eat in restaurants. Expect her to excuse herself when the bill comes. Thus, after her bathroom break, she would ask about her share, but the bill has already been paid.

Typical of most celebrities, NC is shrewd at using her presence in social media. Allegedly, she would send private messages to online sellers of makeup, clothes, and other products she would need for her work. In fairness, her partners have good words for her. NC knows how to honor her ex-deals.

This frugal behavior of NC seems inconsistent with her circumstances. First, NC has a source of income. Second, NC can afford to buy a home in an expensive area, where she can take a break between work. Third, they do not know if NC has other expenses she’s paying off. Thus, her thriftiness remains a mystery.

Incidentally, NC is rumored to have a rich benefactor and that the home was a gift, but NC has denied such allegations and insisted that she and her family pooled their resources to acquire such property.

‘I've always been quite conscious of it, though I don't know why. I would never overspend, and I have to know exactly what I've got so that I avoid going into overdraft. I watch my pennies, and I'm quite thrifty.’ – Darcey Bussell

  3. She might have consciously decided to live frugally to make sure she keeps her feet on the ground. If it makes her self sufficient too then there is nothing wrong with that. Same with saving leftovers. She should share with the bills though when she goes out with friends.

    1. Well, nagtatanong naman daw regarding her share, so dapat sinisingil siya ng friends niya.

    2. True. Plus some people prefer to be alone than with a bunch of alalays.

    3. I agree with you 2:55, nothing wrong with living a simple life. Maybe she is wise enough to know that these are all temporary so she should save as much as she can for a “rainy day”. I agree though that she should pay for her food when out with her friends

  6. Nothing wrong with that except sneak out when bill comes out (but at least she offered to chip in lol haha). Marami kasing kala-waldas ng pera akala nila forever on top! Practical lang si ate girl! IDOL! Hahahaha!!!

  8. Too many artistas carry w them a retinue of PAs. Kahit bago bago pa, daming yaya. I think that's status symbol. Like the one we invited for a corporate show, fairly new girl in the biz but quite talented, mababa nga ang singil, jusko naman, buong baryo naman ang assistants. Biruin mo, plated dinner kami pero buffet sila at di mo akalaing mga sobrang gutom dahil yung mga kasamahan nya purely hangers on lang talaga, kain lng ang pinunta.

  10. K of kaH. I actually don't see anything wrong with her being frugal. Pero yung excusing herself whenever the bill is handed out, yun yung mali.

  13. Ok lang naman maging frugal. Kaso panlalamang na yung tumatakas sa bill eh. Eeww... Kahit marami pa syang pera tapos ganyan asal nya, walang gusto makikipagkaibigan sa kanya.

    1. Baks ang masama pa yon mga taong todo show off ng mga branded na gamit tapos pagdating sa starbucks or kainan gusto lagi libre. Nakakainis yon mga tao na alam na swelduhan tapos ang hirit sayo, oyy libre mo ako.

  16. Wla nmn masama sa pagtitipid. Pero parang sobra naman si ate girl wlang PA and helper masyado nmn niya dinedeprived sarili niya. Saka sa nmn tamaan siya ng hiya na magbayad ng bill pag kumakain sa resto. Wag na lang siyang sumama sa kainan kung ayaw niya magbayad. Lol!

  17. K of Kah who saves and spends her money on travels. She does flaunt when she travels abroad after doing a teleserye. Siyempre she doesn't flaunt much pag nasa pinas kasi paano niya mapanindigang humingi ng food and stuff? #matalinongmatsing.
