The lockdown and work stoppage of productions have greatly affected the financial situation of Experienced Performer (EP). Known for her generosity and sometimes haphazard giving away of her earnings, EP found herself needing assistance. Although some of her friends have covered her expenses, their assistance has limitations, as they have to take care of their families.

When the question of her family’s presence is asked, EP usually says that her relatives and kids are her last option. Allegedly, EP knows that she has a higher chance of getting help successfully from friends than her family and thus, she would approach them only as a last resort. Nonetheless, EP sought help from Child One (CO), who gave her a respectable amount of groceries. CO said that she does not have cash and EP can try Child Two (CT). EP and CT have not been seeing eye-to-eye lately, but still, EP approached CT. Similarly, CT gave EP groceries and said she does not have cash as well. CT said EP can try Other Child (OC). Among the three, OC would be in the worst situation, as he hardly has projects. Thus, OC referred EP to CO. Like a ball being bounced, EP could only sigh.

According to a friend of EP, CO and CT know that giving cash to EP might not be a good idea. They found out that EP has a Special Female friend (SF) again. EP’s SF is almost the same age as CO and is not exactly a good influence to EP. Allegedly, SF is an enabler of vices, such as the casino, which has great effects on the lives of many celebrities. Others have overcome their casino addiction, while others could not get away from the lure of the table and the slot machines. Moreover, EP found a drinking partner in SF and the aftermath of drinking had affected her work with her network.

While advice has not been amiss, family and friends have realized that EP is too hard-headed to change her ways. CO and CT have accepted that EP has no desire to change her ways even if she has gone back and forth to rehab, and seems to be repeating experiences. At this point, they can only tolerate and help out in the ways that they could.

  6. The relatives are right not to give EP cash. Mauubos lang sa bisyo. Besides, if she needs help it's because she needs food right? That's what groceries are for - food and other essentials. EP has nothing to complain about.
